Jeff Anthony
podcast_mic.jpgDrumming wizard Jeff Anthony has returned! When Jeff isn’t analyzing music for Pandora or playing recording sessions, he is frequently thinking about rhythmic patterns. The man is dedicated. In this newest episode, “Drum Feels (For Toms and Kick),” Jeff shows a range of drumset variations that infuse arrangements with spice and zazz. Anticipations, tribal-sounding tom patterns, surf sounds, fills to cover BPM changes, and more. He is around to field questions, too, so fire away on the show page.

    Eric -- Absolutely. I've heard it said that, when you walk into a room where live music is happening, you either like the band or you don't like them. That immediate response is entirely dependent upon whether or not the drummer is doing his or her job. Devika -- Agreed. Plenty of great rap out there.

    Actually if you all are curious the basis of rap music in it's purity came from the history of African chant music and has a different line other than melody in the European sense. What it has BECOME is cultural; and yes unfortunately uniquely American just like Jazz in it's time. I try to keep an open mind when it comes to music; but rap is a very aquired taste just like sushi!!!

    Hello Tim, You have a great project. If something like this was not done a lot of the music of our heritage would be lost forever. I have a question. When you book mark a song does that take it off your play list? It doesn't seem to affect book marked albums or artists, though if the same album is played a different song comes up. Also, I seem to run into the same thing with songs I check as "I like this song". If this is happening then book marking is not a good thing if you happen to like a particular song though I would guess you would tend to hear more album selections of book marked artists. Bob

    Thanks for your comment and question, Bob! When you bookmark a song, you're just keeping track of it for your later reference... Bookmarking a song doesn't change your station one bit. If you'd like to hear a specific song more often on a station, what you can do is either give it a thumbs up when you hear it on a station, or add it to your station as a "seed." This kind of feedback will continue to customize your station over time. You can add multiple songs or artists to a station by clicking the triangle next to the station name and selecting "Add more music to this station". Look here ( for more info on creating and tuning Pandora stations. Thanks! Lucia
