Cobus Potgieter DVD Vlog #1
Not drums, still awesome.
The description on youtube doesn’t quite do it justice; this is honestly one of his best just for the sheer musicality of his playing. Listen out for a ridiculously sexy pre-chorus groove.
Jonas Brothers— Burnin’ Up
Just… watch the intro. Then pause; take a minute to reinsert your jaw before resuming playback. Thank you, and have a nice day.
Smash Mouth— All-Star
Red bull in that cup? Pull the other one… I don’t know what it is, but I suspect this mystical elixir is the secret to Cobus’s badass badassery… that, or being awesome’s just an integral part of his being. You know.
The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus— Face Down
Had to post this sooner or later;
…this is the cover that started it all. His most views, at least until he smashed A7x’s Afterlife— basic but solid beat that suddenly turns rather Cobus-y with some very nice hi-hat work, and it’s all uphill from there. Watch for an epic stick flip, some incredible single-pedal footwork and some ridiculous arm-flailing towards the end that would be funny, were it not so utterly badass.
Not ten posts in and I’m already diving into Youtube’s shadowy depths for more Cobus. I think this was done for freedrumlessons.com; his solo skills are monumentally sexy. Single pedal, so I’m not sure if the feet were used to their full potential— but there’s some solid hi-hat to keep the beat and he can heel-toe on top of having an exceptionally fast right foot anyway. Also— dat bell. #Iwantitinme
Cobus, covering his own original song. For those of you disappointed in the original ‘Heroes’, drums are definitely the focus this time round. Enjoy, stay awesome.
