Re: Who uses Moongel?

Discussions about using muffling on drummer forums are funny. It seems like a point of pride to say you use no muffling and an unported bass drum, but in real life, it seems like every drummer has...

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

They don't influence me. Part of it is I went through that whole linear gospel chops phase when I was 20 and I can't stand hearing cats just blow those particular chops. I don't even like the way...

Re: Drumming as Art

I think it is the point. I need variety. I don't mind being the hired hand who serves another musician's vision; in fact, I really love the challenge of that. But that's not enough for me. I need to...

Re: The foot is the key to groove

It's hugely important. Everyone talks about the backbeat, but modern music is really about the bass rhythm. People can dance to a four-on-the-floor bass drum beat, no backbeat necessary, as long as...

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

I'm usually reluctant to even provide my family with a Christmas list. I'm one of those "you don't have to buy me anything" cats.

Except this year. I volunteered this the minute I first heard...

Re: A Round Table of Greats

I can't believe this interview exists. Just the fact that all those players were in a room together to talk about something like this kind of blows my mind. 1964! Funny, because that was Tony...

Re: 50 years ago today...

There's a whole blog dedicated to Blue Note in 1964. Some interesting historical context. http://www.redbullmusicacademy.com/magazine/blue-note-in-1964-feature

Re: 50 years ago today...

Missed a few months of these :)

Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the recording of Sam Rivers' Fuchsia Swing Song, featuring a ridiculously young and prodigious Tony Williams. Our own Ants...

Re: Happy Birthday Tony Williams ...

I think Miles bought him that first Black Nitron Gretsch kit. WhoIsTony recently purchased one just like it.

Tony burst on the scene and made a huge impression overnight. His first date with...

Re: Where are you comping at with your left hand?

It's funny about transcribing stuff. Have you guys ever transcribed a part by listening and then later saw video footage and realized the sticking was all wrong? I find that whole exercise...

Re: Happy Birthday Tony Williams ...

It's that time again...

On this day in 1945, a musical genius was born. I still remember the first time I heard Four And More. It was like being struck by a lightning bolt. "What the f*** is...

Re: Where are you comping at with your left hand?

There is no rule for what notes you're supposed to comp on. You mentioned the book Syncopation, but how are you using it? One of the fundamental ways to practice jazz comping with that book is to...

Lessons are the best solution because a good teacher can identify technique issues that may be causing or compounding the problem. And you have one of the preeminent hand technique experts in the...

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

The thing that's so amazing about these solos is they're all different....

Re: 8Mile's Gretsch itch

I think I've narrowed it down to Rosewood, Purple and Yellow. (Sorry larryace).

I have a thing for the color red and the Rosewood finish is stunning to my eye.

Re: The power of nostalgia

Nostalgia is as good a reason to buy something as anything else. Let's be honest, most people are not going to give a flying f*** about the gear we play. Most people can't hear the difference between...

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

Music isn't how I make my primary income, so I can afford to be very picky about whom I play with. And I am (very picky). I'm easy to get along with, but if anyone tries to f*** with me, I become...

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

The correlation between the degree of conviction exhibited in an internet post and the accuracy of its content is pretty low. It might even be inverse.

Just saw this. I think you sound great on this, Andy. You definitely sell yourself short. Reading your posts, I always get the image of some hack who can't execute anything. Then you play and it's...

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

As JohnW points out, the exception to what "closed" means in the context of a roll is in the breakdown. And I agree, open-closed-open is the hardest variety; that's what separates the grown-ups from...

Re: Let's talk about THIS Vinnie video

I don't find it particularly difficult to follow the stream of ideas. There is a definite pulse through it all and he's taking it to crazy places, but there's a thread running through it.
