Little Drummer Boy Words

When I was a little boy, the Little Drummer Boy was my favourite christmas carol, simply for the drums.

The semantic of carol, my teacher of the time and the music of Santana's percussion section are accelerants for my lifelong love with drums.

The connection with the site is a little contrived but it serves to tell part of my personal story - I love the harmonies in this Bing Crosby and David Bowie version recorded only a few days before Bing died. - the words are below

About Drumdojo

Dojo is a Japanese word meaning 'place of the way', it reflects the rationale behind the Drumdojo theme, the site and its cellular structure.

drumdojo information fact opinion encyclopedia wikidrum bodojo junkdojo kansandojo bodydrums drumbitsDrumDojo started life in 1998 as Powerhaus.net by Paul Marshall from N.Ireland. It was intended for percussionists who have spent hours surfing the 'net looking for key pieces of information to supplement & advance their understanding of their instruments.

Powerhaus became Drumdojo in 2001 to provide a cohesive information-based resource. Much of the content of the site is presented in the form of useful articles written by knowledgeable percussionists from all around the world, other parts provide reviews of equipment and links to further information on the web.

The site is not about people showing off how much or little they know, but is instead directed towards drummers from all disciplines as a site where they can learn more about how and why their instruments work. You are invited to share some of their understanding for the benefit of others.

Drumdojo It is intended to be pseudo-encyclopaedic in its construction with equal rigour on fact checking and accuracy. The site tends to have a technical aspect by design and has placed no barriers on the depth to which any area of our art can be investigated
