Best YouTube Drummers

by RichLeigh

I've always been a big drumming enthusiast, and here are some of the greatest drummers that I've had the pleasure of coming across on YouTube.

The Best YouTube Drummers

Or at Least Some of the Best That I've Personally Seen

This is by no means an exhaustive list of the best drummers on YouTube, it is however a page that includes some of the best drummers that I've ever come across in my time on YouTube.

If you know of a drummer that you feel is worthy for inclusion that's not already featured here on this page then post in the comments section below and if I like what I see then they'll be added to the list.  

Jonah Rocks

A Little About Jonah

Jonah is a 6-year-old drummer from Canada; he plays from the heart, and at the age of 6 is already a far better drummer than I'm ever likely to be.

Jonah was 4 years old when I first started following his videos on YouTube, and what I loved about him most was just how much fun you could see he was having when playing the drums. Sometimes you see a young kid playing brilliantly on an instrument and presume that they must have pushy parents; that's definitely not the impression that you get when you watch Jonah, in fact you can tell that he absolutely loves it. 

Jonah has over 23,000 subscribers on YouTube, and in my personal opinion he deserves a lot more too, so if you like what you see/hear then I encourage you to subscribe now!

Cobus Potgieter

A Little About Cobus

Cobus Potgieter is a 24-ear-old South African drummer, and was probably the first brilliant drummer that I ever discovered on YouTube.

Cobus has over 200,000 subscribers on YouTube and his videos have been watched more than 78 million times. 

Scott MachineGun Smith

A Little About Scott MachineGun Smith

Scott is a drummer from Arizona that has an impressive collection of Hard Rock/Metal drum covers on his page. Scott has over 67,000 subscribers on his YouTube page and is an absolutely brilliant drummer to watch in action.

Seb Gee

A Little About Seb Gee

Seb's a young drummer from Peterborough, England, and has been drumming now since 2004. Seb has a Pearl Export kit, and the first drum video that I saw of his was this Thomas the Tank Engine Drum cover that he did. Since discovering Seb through this video I've gone on to watch many more of his videos and have always been impressed by the supreme quality of his drumming.


A Little About Vadrum

Vadrum is probably best known to most for this incredible Simpsons Theme drum cover posted back in 2006. This video of his alone has had more than 6 million views, and in total his videos have been watched by more than 56 million. 

Vadrum (Andrea Vadrucci) is a 27-year-old Italian drummer that everyone should most definitely seek to check out.
