The Beginning

After meeting today with a good friend of mine, I was encouraged to step out and create a blog about an iPhone app some friends and I are developing.

This app is called DrumGoat and the purpose of it is to help people become better drummers. For now it’s very simple… the app operates in a quiz-like fashion, concentrating on drum rudiments.

The way it works is the app shows you a drum rudiment in music notation form and you also get to hear what it sounds like. But then it’s your job to say what it’s called – the name of the rudiment.

The app includes the standard 40 rudiments declared by the Percussive Arts Society (http://www.pas.org).

It’s been a blast so far working on this and I’m actually learning a lot personally. I’m embarrassed to say there are some rudiments I didn’t even know existed. Yikes.

Honestly I wish I had this app when I was growing up. I also wish I had an iPhone back then too, haha!
