the snare drums traces back to a medieval drum call the tabor, which was a hand held, portable snare and struck with one stick. it had a single gut snare strung across the bottom. it was originally used in war along with a wind instrument.
the development of the drum rudiments (paradiddle, flam, drag, and roll) coincided with the development of the snare drum and its use for military purposes. sanford a. moeller, creator ot the “moeller method” of drumming and author of the book the art of snare drumming insists that it is essential to study military drumming in order to master the snare drum.
The snare drum became more sophisticated in the late 1800’s.
emile boulanger and a. g. soistmann obtained patents for improved hardware for mounting and tuning snare drums. u. g. leedy built the first adjustable snare drum stand in 1898.
prior to that, drummers had to hang the snare over the shoulder or set it on a chair.
This is a popular song composed by mort garson with lyrics by bob hilliard.
it was recorded by american #randbgroup#rubyandtheromantics in early december, 1962, reaching number one on the #billboardhot100
i think of this song as two people in love who may not have everything "materially" yet, but that their strong love for one another will carry them through the hard times to the dreams their hearts desire❤
