Since January 2011, Cruise Ship Drummer! has provided free of charge hundreds of pages of top quality, original exercises and transcriptions, as well as written pieces in our inimitable style and perspective. I think you'll agree that what we offer is totally unique on the Internet. Creating that content demands a lot of love and many, many uncompensated hours of work. Your cash support helps us in this work, and assures that we are able to continue, and hopefully expand our offerings into the future. If you value this blog, please contribute what you are able:
