Hi. I am primarily a Record producer, among other things, I am Looking to help Musicians become better connected to other musicians and also become better at promoting themselves. I would like to suggest one of the services I provide to drummers. it's a mixing service to rework recordings of their drumming skills, to help make a better impression with musicians looking for drummers and help their product shine. what I do is: ask you what songs you'd like to play along to, or what style of music you would like to perform and find some songs which might suit you. I then create drum-less versions of those songs which you would then play along with the click-track which you would copy into Garage-band, Logic Audio or Protools, or any other DAW of your choice. and then record yourself playing along to it through a single mic or multiple mics. if you don't have that kind of Tech. just put on your headphones connected to your iPhone or iPod and play along to the track with a click-track embedded in the track and then record what you play on another device (computer or another phone). then send that recording back to me and I will sync it back up with the backing track which I made for you and then mix it all together to include your drumming performance. I will then send a 10-second mix of that back to you for approval. and then ask for you to transfer payment for my services. I charge $45 per song. If you are interested in this service and want me to start the process get in touch.

Times are hard. I think musicians have it pretty hard. unless you are a multi-instrumentalist. and even then, with COVID-19 still here, there are no real outlets for musical talent in the lower levels of music. i would say you should use music-based social media to work with other musicians to make musical product you can sell until covid has disappeared for good.
