Re: Practicing on a Pillow

I think it's a great exercise. I wouldn't necessarily recommend that anyone else follow my path, but it was great for me. I started out learning a drum corps-styled technique and grip that emphasized...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

This gets to the heart of an intersting topic that could fill an entire thread of its own about improvisation.

In group improvisational music, the burden of leading where the improvisation goes...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

Hahaha. Of course, I would never deface your beautiful instrument with such sacrilege. But I do enjoy joking about it, I can't help it. :)

I am strongly in favor of Coldplay having to pay to play the Super Bowl.

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

First of all, I want to reiterate Tony's point that most of the discussion here is centering on backbeat music. I play blues, rock and funk, but I also play improvisational music that requires a more...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

I ordered a copy of the magazine! It also features a special on Tony, so I get that as a bonus.

Andy, should I send you the pink sparkle wrap that I want on my In-Tense snare now, or should I...

Re: WTF!

I don't know, I can't get upset about this stuff. Lots of old business models don't work anymore. So I say kudos to those who have figured out how to work the new system instead of sitting around...

Re: Peppe Merolla

I like to think I'm in touch with what's going on, but I have to admit I had never even heard of this cat. I have now! Color me impressed.

Re: A new project

This comes as no surprise to me. You're one of the cats, a real player and musician. Good musicians are going to want to play with you. Sounds like a fun gig. Enjoy and keep us posted!

The most famous crowdfunding project is, of course, this one.

Re: Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn

I play this song with a couple different bands. I play it as a Texas Shuffle, all of it on the ride cymbal, no hi-hats. I believe that's what Chris Layton did, both on the record and on live clips...

Re: Did Bill Bruford stop practicing for a while?

Haha, thanks. I'm actually a big fan of Bill's playing, but Grea and I have this long-running joke. She hasn't taken the bait yet, though.

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

I was sitting in at a jazz jam at a local coffee house about 20 years ago. Good players, most of them from a local university's jazz band. Cats would come in with their axe and just sit in. But the...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Ants,

So you can take the cymbal off and on without removing the t-top?

Re: Did Bill Bruford stop practicing for a while?

Bill was so focused during the Yes period that he had neglected his sarcasm and condescension skills. He spent the following years honing those skills back up to standard, so his drumming suffered...

Such a great post. You raise some really important, and often overlooked, points.

I can relate. I recently was asked to be part of a band a friend is forming to back a really talented, young...

Re: Strange woman found lurking in the workshop ;)

Andy, you're finally making drums with bright, sparkly wrap finishes!

Pretending he didn't read the entire post just to tweak his buddy,

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

Yes. And the whole #BAM thing he is pushing. Changing what we call the music. That's what dominates his words these days.

I understand part of where he is coming from, but I think it gets lost in...

Re: I highly recommend this book...and not only to jazz drummers

I'm on it. Philly Joe was probably my first big influence in the style. I listened to those Miles Prestige records obsessively when i was in my late teens.

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

Love that quote, Ants! Jarrett is a genius in the truest sense of that overused word.

The word jazz has gotten a lot of mileage lately. I'm kind of reluctant to go there, but has anyone been...

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

You know it, Ants!

With the floods we're getting in Detroit tonight, we'll be under water by morning. Might as well snag a boat and set sail for N.J. and we can have that brew.

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

Practice should often sound terrible. My practice sessions sure do. I practice what I'm poor at and I remain poor at it for quite a while, sometimes. When I get good at something, I start practicing...

Re: Post your Zoom Q3 recordings :)

The first clip is my favorite. That's closer to the tuning range I like with smaller drums. Well done, Andy!
