1 Miss Senri Kawaguchi on Drums on Wed Apr 30, 2014 2:32 am

Found this while checking drummers out. This little one is incredible at such an early age. Looking forward to more as she continues going the route she's heading...great musician in my estimate. She must be listening to the right people...Oh, and by the way, that guitarist may be blind.

Ridiculous!

Give HER Moffet's kit!!

I can tell you EXACTLY who she
is listening to and learning from:

AKIRA JIMBO

THIS is what I love to see! She is
dynamic, sensitive and powerful
and all in her wonderful package.

Love it.  cheers

Hi Pete,

Glad you're getting better. Thanks for that information on what she's listening to. Yes, Akira is a great drummer indeed. I've always enjoyed his performances.

She has very good control of her ideas and plays within herself comfortably. This is great to see in any musician but at this age and stage in her life, this makes her a potentially special person. Wink

I'm with you on that Boomer...she is certainly a package to behold. She has all the attributes of a fine drummer at such an early age. I'm most certain that she's  probably heard and listens to you if she's been a student of Akira Jimbo. You're a major contributor to the fusion era, till now and think everyone here would agree.

Thank you for you valued input here and glad you've pointed out those qualities of what makes for a great drummer/musician.

Here's another clip taken from that same session above. Clearly demonstrates the little one's applied dexterity playing in context. Understandingly she dragged slightly but just a little and recovered (considering the brute tempo of the song)...Nonetheless, this is no Hello Kitty here folks but a fine upcoming musician in my humbled opinion...near frightening

Interesting guitar technique.

I wonder what us and our drum heros would have come up with at young ages if the type of educational media existed back then. The bar has been raised high and each generation of young kids is meeting it. They see it, they get it, they do it. More and more kids like this are all over youtube, etc. It's really something to behold.

Very good observation Asaph. Yes indeed as much as it is about raw talent within individuals it's also the level of instruction and technology that this generation has available to them. It simply enhances and strengthens the serious students/talented individuals of the day. This is good because at this level and age the genre of musical styles may be making a transition for a more advance outlook to music having substance. Of course, there will always be the pop culture that's geared towards the more main stream stuff in the music industry. But that could change due to the interest of kids like Senri but I'll play the prophet by saying, not for awhile.

By the way, do you suspect that the guitarist may well be blind? I don't want to be premature in stating that.

That was my first thought.

Hello Asaph,

I was giving it some thought and I feel that I've always was most appreciative of the old school masters, one being Mr. Jo Jones. They may not have had the resources drummers have today but totally relied on raw practice developing into some incredible feats of being musical in drumming.

Jo Jones, Max, Buddy, Gene, of course. Art, Philly Joe, Elvin. So many of them had raw skills honed into mastery of the instrument. Tony innovated. Billy certainly did. Those who had old fashioned lessons took it to great heights.

Today you can WATCH drummers 24 hours a day, literally, and see what most of us could only imagine through hearing at one time, and 78s couldn't capture the dynamics of drums very well. 33.3s gave us more to hone in on. Many only had the chance encounter of seeing and hearing a drummer in a club in a city somewhere, or local drummers at school dances. So much changed in just a few decades.

 Suspect

I can substitute the word "technology"
for the words art and skill.

Replication = Degradation?

I agree with that "technology" statement
within certain genres, Pete.

That's very true in pop and top 40 but in
the world of music where the artistic and
technical elements are applied physically
via human interaction, it's the ARTIST
behind the instrument that matters to the
real music connoisseur.

And THAT will NEVER become obsolete.
