In Conversation with Damian Erskine – Groove Tools

About This Episode

In today’s podcast we’re talking to Damian Erskine, author of our latest SBL Academy course, Contemporary Groove Techniques.

Having honed his chops with some of the best musicians the West coast of America has to offer, Damian Erskine is the real deal. A player of both strength and depth, he more than matches the hard-swinging grooves of his counterparts, not to mention his exceptional soloing. Being the nephew of drummer Peter Erskine, who formed a formidable rhythm section with Jaco Pastorius in the late ‘70s, Damian is well positioned to take the lead in the latest Artist Course from SBL.

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about Damian’s brand-new SBL course.
  • How he executes his astonishing right-hand technique.
  • Why he spent years practicing chord tones.
  • What it’s like playing with the Peter Erskine Trio.
  • And much, much more…
