  • Punch Drumming to Bocelli

    No. It isn't me punch drumming to Bocelli. But, after listening and watching this YouTube video of this speed bagger named Bryce, it has inspired me to give it a try.

    I wanted to post this video because, 1. someone new is punching a speed bag; and 2. the song is so beautiful – wow, that Bocelli guy can sing!

    Other than Alan Kahn, I don't recall seeing a speed bagger attempting to punch to classical music before. This bagger appears to be relatively new at the art of the bag, but he shows promise.

    Anyway, it was a very pleasant video to watch this early this morning, sipping on my coffee, and fantasizing about Italy, Andrea Bocelli, the canals of Venice, and a new Leone speed bag… oh, but I digress…

      Yes he is doing a great job, punching sometimes in syncopated combinations and sometimes in straight time AND double time triplet rhythm (1:30 - 1:40) ...of course he might not know that but it does not matter. He feels the bag beat and can match it to the music most of the time.

      I have punched to a lot of classical music, as well as some opera. It amazingly powerful music. Actually the speed of the music doesn't matter so much because you can punch slower to really fast music by dropping down to "punching in half time", or you can punching to much slower music by jumping up to "punching in double time." Either way you can sound directly on beat to the song. Bryce goes to both methods occasionally.


      If you want to try some classical punch drumming, but don't know much at that genre than you try any of these... fast classical

      fast classical (samples, not whole songs)

      #1 (William Tell by Rossini) is an As#kicker. you might try a moderate basic rhythm for the easy way out. If you try to use syncopated combinations... hang on and get yourself an afterburner. Here is the entire 3min_20sec finale:

      #11. Overture to the Thieving Magpie starts at 8:10 (careful....it's 3/4 time. Use basic rhythm, 3 punches per measure. it matches perfectly. If you want to change sides of the bag, double punch on the side you are going to.

      Yes he can Been a favorite of mine for a long time. The song in the Bryce video: "Con te partiro" (time to say goodbye.) He is also well known for Duets of "The Prayer" with many artists, particular Celine Dion. But just listen to the note at 4:44 to 5:00 (16 seconds) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5vrPaE5Y1o

      Andrea Bocelli

      Of course classical, especially opera is not for everyone. An acquired taste I imagine, but I happen to love it and you can punch to many of the songs, which is great because you get to listen to them also...

      La Donna e Mobile (3/4 time: use basic "triplet" rhythm. 3 punches per measure. To change sides of the bag, double punch on the side you are going to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmTJ0bUG8mo

      Funiculi Funicula Medium speed basic rhythm, pretty fast syncopated combinations. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PG4SbelgIFk
