This is the Street drum that was created well it was more like the reinvention of the bucket by Larry Wright and Jared Crawford.
We were kids maybe around 8, 13 and 14. This was our means of making money and to pay our bills and keep out of trouble and was just something that we learned and explored with.
We took up more items and found more different ways to make different sounds on walls and floors and ceilings doors anything that made a sound like pots. But there are different sounds and I'll let you know what they are.
There are different ways to make different sounds too using the bucket drum. It Is different from using a normal drum because when you hit drums they all make the same sound as the center of the drum and make the same sound every time.
Not so with the bucket you have to hit the bucket in the right place to make a certain sound. The center which makes a specific sound, you have the rim which makes a different sound, you can also have a bucket that facing upwards and use the inside to stir the drumsticks inside makes a different sound. You can also Use the floors the walls ceilings and also to make a deep bass sound. To make that sound what you do is while you're drumming on the bucket drum you lift up the bucket with your foot at the same time as you hit the bucket and then you drop the bucket back down to the floor with your foot all in one motion makes a nice deep bass sound. With buckets you have to have a little slight of the hand a little trickery with your skills when you perform your rhythms like flipping your sticks with the likeness of a magician and to make it harder, you continue with the bucket beats while flipping the sticks. It makes it more entertaining for people as they come by.
