It's a long and tough-to-master proces from picking up the drum sticks for the first time to getting a big gig on the main stage with a major band. It takes years of preparation and practising, right? Wrong! At least, according to best-selling author and life-hacker Tim Ferriss.
Tim, who wrote such books as 'The 4-Hour Workweek: Escape 9-5, Live Anywhere, and Join the New Rich (Expanded and Updated),' pushes himself to the edge, deconstructing and decoding tough-to-master tasks with master efficiency.
In 'The Tim Ferriss Experiment', Tim utilizes his trademark rapid-learning techniques to challenge himself to seemingly impossible and thrilling feats.
The weekly program is part of Upwave's television content on Turner Broadcasting.
Tim's latest goal is to rehearse for five days and then play with iconic band Foreigner, filling the shoes of drum greats such as Chris Frazier, Mark Schulman, Deen Castronovo, Brian Tichy, Jason Sutter and Jason Bonham.
None other than Stewart Copeland of The Police teaches Tim the basics of rock drumming so Tim can play one song live and not embarass himself. Watch the result in the video below:
