Steve White - Play-Along Competition

Chance for drummers to win a personal masterclass with Steve White.

British drumming legend Steve White has teamed up with Yamaha to make one of his brand new tracks available for you to download free of charge and enjoy drumming along to. Check out this video of Steve playing along, then download the same track and show us what you can do.

Maybe you want to play along with Steve (the drum score is also available) or draw inspiration from his performance and do your own thing.

The track ‘Running’ by Haugue and White is available to download as a drumless track (with Click) and Steve has set a challenge for drummers to record themselves and send it in with the chance of winning some great prizes.
