David “Fingers” Haynes Performs w/ NI Maschine

October 7, 2010

David “Fingers” Haynes steps further away from his Alesis HR-16B and Korg Nanopad to pick up the NI Maschine and give another demonstration of his finger drumming mastery. Stay on the lookout as the drummer promises a breakdown of his sound placement in an upcoming video series.

An explanation for sound placement will be in my lesson series´╗┐ when it’s released. — David “Fingers” Haynes

Agreed. He puts a lot of people to shame.

If you were blind (and this is no way meant to slander blind folks), you would think he was playing a “live” set of drums and NOT on a pad controller! This is great stuff, just crazy!

I know right? This cat actually plays live drums tho..

DonB October 9, 2010 at 1:09 pm

Holy shit. This is guy is insane

Danny October 9, 2010 at 11:42 pm

Does he write drum beats over his own tracks? It would be pretty crazy if he did a live set with his style of playing the drum machine.

he’s not really a hip-hop producer. more of a live jazz/gospel drummer who happens to have been building his drum machining skills for years. but he does have a few vids drumming over a few hip-hop tracks.
