On a beat hunt? Try the Ryan Gruss blog.

Drum Set

Well here’s a concept worth mentioning: a drum loop blog. There’s not too much to say here other than Boston, Massachusetts resident Ryan Gruss posts a drum loop a day for all of us to use and abuse. He’s categorizing his loops so this could be a place to go when on a beat hunt.

“Hey Oliver, I just wanted to drop you a note and say hi.  recently started a blog of my own. I record and upload new drum loops everyday (almost) for anyone to use.  I post a quick audio preview and supply a download link to the original Logic files.” – Ryan Gruss

No drummer jokes ok? (NO NO I’m joking… please leave many drummer jokes in the comments!)
