I may not have any pull whatsoever in trying to get someone relatively unknown Youtuber a proper audience…. but, I try. Thanks to the 150+ subscribers of my weekly mailing list, and thank you to my patrons at Patreon, and my nearly 2,000 subscribers on YouTube. I love you all and am so grateful to every single one of you. Seriously.
A week or so ago I was talking to my drum student about how we were both annoyed by CooperDrummer, the too-happy-cheesy guy who does drum covers (and not even that well, mind you)… and how he has 2.5 million subscribers.
How the fuck does CooperDrummer have 2,500,000 subscribers? Elise Trouw, Tamara Tadic, and Maytal Cohen (all females, by the way) destroy him, and they all play without cheesing out (well, maybe Maytal, a little). What I love about Tamara Tadic though, is she is straight-faced: all concentration, pure, raw talent. No bullshit.
Talent-wise, Tamara Tadic destroys a LOT of drummers out there. I’ve been in a metal mood lately… that’s how I found her. Fuck yeah, metal.
Like 10 years ago, she did a superb drum cover of Slayer’s “Angel Of Death”… but this, this is on another level. And she wrote this song with some guitarist named Chris Tranmer. Fantastic. Tamara used to be the drummer of a band called Conquer Divide, but I believe she’s just solo, these days.
Once you check that out, check out her humble beginnings:
Women truly deserve to be treated as equals, if not treated as the superior gender. Seriously. Watch “Withstand” again. Women FUCKING ROCK.
It’s proven over and over and over…. drums, guitar, piano, songwriting, singing… women have it in spades. Always have it. We, as guys, are constantly trying to be as awesome as this. But we’ll never be this.
Tamara, you fucking RULE.
