What is Finger Drumming?

Finger drumming is more than just a Youtube sensation.

It’s an emerging skill that’s bringing the traditional elements of instrumentation such as rhythm, composition, performance and moving them to the modern instrument of the pad controller.

The ability to finger drum transforms a pad controller into an instrument. Instead of being limited to step sequencing or programming, the accomplished finger drummer unlocks the range and expression available to musicians. The result is creative possibility shifting back into the producer’s hands.

And Melodics is leading the way when it comes to education on finger drumming.

Thanks everyone at Melodics for making this tool. I have done more finger drumming in the last 5 days than I have in the last 5 years!”

Step 1
Melodics was a game changer for me. After a couple of weeks of daily practice, I was able to play the ‘Amen Brother’ breakbeat. I was so excited. I just kept going from there, unlocking as many levels as I could.”

I've been using your software for about 3-4 days now, and I already have seen HUGE improvements
Just wow guys! I’ve been producing for years and I’ve always hated programming drums. I have always wanted to feel like I’m playing an instrument, while I’m making music. That’s where my love for finger drumming came in. I feel disconnected from my music when it feels like the computer is doing all the work for me.

I’ve been using your software for about 3-4 days now, and I already have seen HUGE improvements. I tried to teach myself several times how to get my fingers to do what I want (Youtube videos, watching live finger drumming etc) but nothing worked.

So thanks to you and your entire team for such an incredible program.”
