Episode 7 - Mel Lewis and Rub-a-Dub

In this episode of The Drum Hang we dive into the playing of Mel Lewis and specifically his use of a sticking called Rub-a-Dub. This sticking not only works for a comping/time pattern but also importantly it works great when playing written figures within a big band. Mel Lewis was a master of Rub-a-Dub and in this episode you can see him play it himself in some very rare footage.
