Drummers Unite For A Cause

Carl worshipping

It was exciting to take part in this gathering of drummers & percussionist to make a declaration about the poor & starving people around the world. Last Saturday at 2 PM we played the snare drum piece “3 Camps”. It is a classic snare solo that was used to rally the troops.

Get ALL the information & a pdf “chart” at the www.drummer cafe.com web site. Don’t be concerned if you don’t read music; *that’s not the point… play it in a simpler form without the double strokes if needed. Here’s a pdf of the basics; add double strokes to the “non” accented notes if you can.  www.snarescience.com/exercises/three-camps.pdf

I believe that the minstrels are being called around the world to not only worship the Lord with music, but to play to bring about change in our hearts & the hearts of people that hear it; to not only speak about & believe in justice, BUT TO DO IT.

Isaiah 58 speaks strongly about God’s thoughts on this… Here’s an excerpt …

6 “Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:
to loose the chains of injustice
and untie the cords of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free
and break every yoke?
7 Is it not to share your food with the hungry
and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?
8 Then your light will break forth like the dawn,
and your healing will quickly appear;
then your righteousness[a] will go before you,
and the glory of the LORD will be your rear guard.
9 Then you will call, and the LORD will answer;
you will cry for help, and he will say: Here am I.

  1. Can you name the drummers who participated in this? Left to right, please.

    • so sorry, I don’t recall the names of most of the drummers that were their that day… Craig Krampf, Ralph Pace, Chuck Bradley, & Bart Elliot are a few names I can remember. It was a special moment… we all showed up quickly; played the piece; & then left. Glad you liked it. Blessings, Carl
