Drumming 101 With E.J. Gold #33 DVD VIDEO MOVIE Drum Egoless Way class patterns 




E.J. began this class with examining the drumming of two students. He advised both to simplify their drumming. Compose the easiest patterns for your hands so you can eventually take your attention off your hands and the drum beat and put it on a conversation. To drum without hesitation, you must know where your drum is without looking, just like when playing guitar, you don't look at the frets. In addition, soften your hands, keep them fluid.

E.J. demonstrated on the "Tri" udu a simple basic drumming pattern he uses in a healing ceremony. Every beat is calculated, not by the brain but by feel. Think of yourself as a drummer in a village ritual which may go on for 9 - 11 hours. Your hands must be totally relaxed, limp. Your breathing must be natural, relaxed, not strained. You can't be holding your breath. Your mind must be at rest, not thinking of anything at all. Your ears must be attuned to what's coming out so you can adjust to what's going in, making the adjustments needed to make the right stuff come out. Resist the urge to speed up or slow down. Above all, there must be nothing inside of you that gets bored or distracted. It's a single-pointed, directed meditation. All of your listening, learning and comparing is now coming out of your drum.
When you're drumming you have the opportunity to link to power points, vortices, through geomancy. If you understand how contact works in sex -- not ordinary sex of those lost in oblivion -- but if you have your wits about you, you tune yourself into your partner. You'll notice a slow melting process.
It's the same with a vortex. There's a delicate entry. You're looking for softness, to merge. If there's anything left of you in the drummer -- ego -- it prevents you from merging. Ego disallows the unready from initiation. You have to be sensitive to the needs of the drumming. At some point the drumming will come alive. You're a servant, not of the drum, but the drumming. It's the manifesting here on Earth and you are helping it. You're maintaining the purity. If you're expressing yourself, you can't host the spirit of the drum. Attuning yourself to the higher is actually what you're doing by learning to drum the egoless way.

For DVD Player (North American NTSC)


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
