Hello friends! Time to write about drumming once again. A while ago we uploaded a new drum cover that I’m actually pretty proud of. At the beginning of the whole idea of drum covering, I wanted to test my skills in playing the tougher Blink-182 songs. I guess I also wanted to demonstrate the amazing talent Travis Barker really has in his grooves. To be able to play Blink with drums is not to eat a piece of cake. […] Read more!
Here I am again with another Travis Barker drum cover. We uploaded this one yesterday, and it got a nice ammount of comments straight away. So thanks for them – seems like people really like to follow the occasional the Blink-covers I do. This one’s Stockholm Syndrome from the self-titled album:
To be honest, this one was filmed at the end of last year. We’ve had quite a bunch of covers awaiting for publishing. This song is one of those filler songs for drum cover filming sessions. […] Read more!
Just recently we uploaded a new drum video. It’s one of the several covers we filmed and recorded a few weeks ago. Seems like I still haven’t ran out of Blink-182 songs to cover, so here’s another Travis Barker classic. The Blink album Take Off Your Pants And Jacket has THE best sounding drums ever made. Actually we try to mimic that namely drum sound on our own recordings too. In addition to the sound, Barker’s playing on that record is also top notch. […] Read more!
As some of you might already have noticed, we uploaded a fresh new drum cover this weekend! The man I’m covering is the same old dude called Travis, but I just can’t get enough of his drumming. In an inspirational way he’s a bottomless well of good ideas.
Here it is, After Midnight from Neighborhoods album!
Travis relies a lot on rudimentary chops. As a matter of fact, this song required me to rehearse some double stroke rolls in order to get the hihat lick right. […] Read more!
So, here we go again! I would like to talk about some great bass sounds on punk/pop music. Last time I talked about basses and now I will make you listen to them!
1. Mark Hoppus / Blink 182
Surprise? I think Mark’s sound is one of the most iconic pop/punk sounds out there. Really bright and clear sound that sticks out from the bands mix really easily. Notice also how Mark plays chords almost all the time just to support the bands overall sound. […] Read more!

Totally awesome intro and verse in all their simplicity. Intro is just one riff which sounds dull when played alone, but with bass the combination is just awesome. This approach would have also worked on the other parts of the song, sadly guitar doesn’t stay on only one chord during the verses.
Hi folks! Here’s a new drum cover from the same old Blink-182. The track is entitled “Go”!
I’ve been listening to Blink’s self-titled album pretty much lately. Me being a fan of older Blink, some of the songs on the album lean towards a bit too experimental domain, but it has some really cool drum parts. Having said that I have to admit that Travis experiments a lot on those songs too, but for a drummer that’s only inspiring.
If you’ve been listening to us on Spotify, you’ve maybe seen that white little tick next to our name on our Spotify page. That means we got an official Spotify profile for MadCraft some time ago. You can follow us and find out whenever something new is happening. We can also create playlists you can subscribe to.
So we got an idea! We’re gonna create an awesome playlist for you guys every week and write something about why we decided to go with those songs.
