About Joseph Wesley Arrington

Greetings traveler.  
My name is Joseph Wesley Arrington and I'll begin by thanking you for your interest in my slice of the cosmos. I am a professional drummer that has spent the last 22+ years touring the world, practicing, recording, teaching, gigging, and mostly developing a highly personalized outlook on the philosophy of music and practice. There is generally a great deal of mystery shrouding the successes of modern musicians. Everyone’s path is different; this is a portal into mine.  


The funding from your exclusivity as a Patron will continually ramp up my production values and content.  In addition, your contribution will yield:

- Video, audio, and software upgrades (trying fort better quality)
- More streamlined content (the less ghetto the better?)
- The funding of new albums and more music
- Some necessary expenses/bills/breakfast burritos
- Energy Drinks Galore

I have some riveting stuff swimming around in my wily brain with many new projects coming and the prospect of what's to come is really thanks to you, the Patreon family.  Rather than have a “lesson” approach or a “beginner-intermediate-advanced” website, I’d rather not patron-"ize" my passengers on such a journey… Let's get down to brass tacks:


-( $1 )   You are here to OBSERVE!  One dollar a month gets you exclusive access to my Patreon-only blog and pictures.  This is where you'll experience my inspirations and secrets about upcoming projects..  This is an important first step because this is where I'll talk about upcoming content before it is released!

- ( $5 )
To get us into interstellar trajectory I'll release one video a month exclusive to Patreon.  This is where I'll talk about hand technique and fundamentals.  Quality ideas touching on musical philosophies, drum books, practice pad, and more.  Sort of like a video diary to compliment the $1 tier.
(previous tier included!)

- ( $15 ) Twice a month
 you can expect a high quality video lesson on drum parts from the following: A Lot Like BirdsSianvar, Royal Coda, Kurt Travis, Love Mischief, etc.  This will include grooves, fills, transcriptions, footage of the material slowed down, and even some explanations about how I developed the ideas to begin with.  Buckle up and keep your helmet on.
(previous tiers included!)

- ( $30 )
Twice a month I will release in depth videos capturing my practice routines.  This is the "lesson" portion covering rudiments, time feel, independence, warm ups, technique, reading, Jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Odd Time Signatures, Linear Grooves, polyrhythms, Progressive Rock and more...  
(previous tiers included!)  

- ( $45 ) Once a month
 I'll drop one video specifically about creating, recording, or writing NEW material for a record.  The difference here is a focus on creating drums for bands like A Lot Like Birds, Sianvar, Royal Coda, Love Mischief, So Much Light, alone, and many personal projects and new bands to be considered.  
(previous tiers included!)

- ( $60 ) 
In addition to all previous content, lets get together on skype, g-chat, facetime, or any other video service and talk about your life and your goals as a human for roughly an hour.  It has taken me some time indeed to recognize this as a potentiality, but I can't wait to see you all!  One lesson alone is 60.00 so this is a bargain dot com!!!
 (previous tiers included!)

Rest assured, I will go to great lengths to make every minute worth the journey, after all, I'm on the journey with you.  This Patreon will also evolve, as you and I do, and I will have milestones and goals setup regularly...  All in the name of more music and more content.  It's simple:

  The more travelers that join, the better evolution of content, future music, and entire projects worth of ideas seen through fruition!
 So, whatever your level of interest, whether you play or listen, welcome to my side of the galaxy.  Cheers!  - Joseph

Thanks to y'all a new laptop has EMERGED.  It has literally changed the way I function.  It's almost more important than my car...  ah.... ahem...  anyways......  I need an interface and some microphones to snag the BEST possible sounds from my beautiful Gretsch drums and Zildjian cymbals.  I'm not asking for anything in specific...  But if we can make 800.00 happen I will cram it ALL into these facilities.  Thanks space kiddos!!!
