Re: What Haven't You Played Yet but Really Want To?

Re: Double Stroke Control and Fulcrum

Ahhhhhh.... Now I see, thanks for clarifying that. When there's a quote and then simply a name, it attributes the quote to that person. Got it, thanks for the compliment. :)

Re: Double stroke roll lesson for Modern Drummer

I have no doubt and couldn't possibly agree more!

I mentioned having a complete technical toolbox and then choosing the right tool for the job based on the musical context/whim. It all depends on...

Re: Double stroke roll lesson for Modern Drummer

First of all, thanks again for so many compliments. :)

WhoIsTony, I don't differentiate anything between "corps" technique and otherwise. Rather I believe in having a full tool box of techniques...

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

For a Music Ed degree I could make a very long list of colleges I would go to rather than Berklee. What kind of teacher do you want to be? If you're interested in working in any sort of school system...

Re: Stick Control - How even is even?

There are lots of variables that will lead you closer to or farther away from an "even" sound while playing the Stick Control stickings.

The pitch of your sticks is a huge deal and you should use...

Re: Tip: How to play behind the beat

If the drums are the beat, then why would they sound bad when they rush or drag?

When everybody rushes or drags together, it can still sound fine, but if not then the drummer sounds...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

I have around 60 cymbals or so, and I'm amazed that I have as many as 11 snares. To me a snare is just a choked off rattling noisemaker that I can generally tune to sound like anything I want, but a...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

For the china, check out a Zildjian 12" oriental china trash. Don't let the size fool you, these things have plenty of cut, yet they're not massive & overbearing--or too high pitched for that matter....

Re: What are your favourite recorded drumsounds?

Re: Lug tension, head tension discrepancy

It could be that the shell is out of round, or that the rim is bent. Both of these scenarios will result in what you described. It could also be that one tension rod is crusty-dry while others have...

Re: Peart Replica Percussion rack

Check out the Grace Under Pressure tour video, the whole thing is very well lit and you can see every detail of his kit. And for me that's the best Rush live video by far! Dig the rat-tail.
