|My name is Shane Dorrington and I have been playing the drums for 30 years.
I have played in many different situations, from Las Vegas style shows to jazz trios.
I have recorded on many occasions T.V. and radio commercials, played in some nationally recognised pop bands, I have backed many well known singing / variety artists and also recorded with them.
I have played in several top 40 " cover bands ", a couple of funk bands with horn sections and Count Basie, Duke Ellington style big bands.
I'm currently playing in a 9 piece Blues Bros. Revue band.
I have taught hundreds of students and have backed Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Sam and Dave to name just a few.
I like you love to play the drums.
I live in Melbourne Australia.I was lucky to have a great teacher by the name of Jim Piesse who new the importance of knowing how to read without sacrificing creativity.
I was also fortunate to learn from the incomparable Graham Morgan who also was instructing Virgil Donati at that time.
I have written out these charts over those 30 years, constantly evolving them so they are easy to read.
I hope you find them easy to read as well.
Thank- you, Shane.
