Welcome back to another episode of DrumGAB podcast. With each passing interview, I feel more and more able to connect with my guests and it translates to better podcasts. It was some time ago that I booked a date with Dan Mayo and I had thoughts of what I would want to ask him. Dan is a drummer that I am personally a huge fan of and as a podcast host, I wanted to capitalize on that opportunity by producing a memorable podcast. My focus is ensuring that I am steadily improving my ability to communicate with people. I do this so that down the road, I will have some profound experiences and memories with my drumming brothers and sisters. Dan Mayo's interview is a personal turning point in how I perceived my podcast.
We don't discuss Dan's history with drums for long, although we do briefly touch on this. In a nutshell Dan has played drums since before he can accurately recall. The heart of this podcast, besides some discussion on his amazing band TATRAN, is about how Dan approaches drumming. When a player shows so much physical and mental freedom, I have to understand the liberties that are included with that. How does he become so engaged so quickly in these one-minute clips on Instagram from a cold start? How Dan answered some of my questions were unlike what I was expecting. I won't spoil anything else, you will just need to hear it for yourself.
