Percussion Solo

GMG Staff Starter Submissions Leave a Comment

In December of 2011 Hang Massive released their first online video and music release ‘ Once Again ‘. That video spread virally and since then has been seen more then 60 million times online and viewed in countries all around the world. That success introduced millions of people to an amazing new instrument and was the basis for a global and dedicated fan base excited to hear more offerings from this unique musical project about Hang Drums.

By definition, everything that requires being “hit” in order to make a sound is a percussion instrument. In the classical reference, pianos, guitars, and drums are all percussion, but for simplicity’s sake we will limit ourselves to other percussion instruments aside from those three. We will name percussion instruments that add that “spice” or “texture” to a bland song. Percussion instruments in this case include the Xylophone, Vibraphone, Glockenspiel, Bells, Chimes, Gong, Cymbals, Maracas, Wood Block, Cowbell, Rain-stick, Spoons, Steel Drums, Triangle, Gourd, Hang Drums, and others.

Please send a video of you or your band-mate doing a percussion solo. Backing tracks and live accompanying musicians are fine as long as the focus is on the percussion.
