To eclipse the previous world record, set by 533 drummers at the annual Woodstick music conference in Seattle, USA, in May 2006, each participant had to assemble one bass drum, one snare, at least one tom tom, Hi-Hat cymbals
and a crash or ride cymbal and then play the same beat together for five minutes.
McCord, I like these" (pointing to hi-hat cymbals as he rocked on his feet).
He struggled with the hi-hat cymbals. He had trouble standing up (his preferred way so he could rock and tap his foot on the pedal) but sitting down only worked with a certain stool.
I noticed his only rocking was just before he played the bass xylophone, but otherwise he seemed confident as he took turns rotating to the different instruments playing glockenspiel, soprano xylophone, ride cymbal and hi-hat cymbals. He did not listen to how the person who sang the response to his solo sounded because he moved to the back of the line before he finished.
