Re: Open handed technique

I'd just like to add one negative to open handed playing if I may. Before I chose this I shared match and traditional grip 50/50. Since changing to open handed I virtually ignore trad grip. I only...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Sonic wallpaper. AWESOME definition!

I have known audiophiles who cared more about the hi fi system used to play the music, than the actual music.

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

I met Dennis a while ago and told him about my #1 student who is 12. Dennis said "Is he here, can I meet him?".

Dennis Chamners is not only a great musician, he is one hell of a great guy.

Re: Open handed technique

With all due respect Jeff, I think the naysayers have likely never actually played open handed playing over a long period and criticise it from the sidelines. That is a guess but it reminds me of...

Re: The matching snare

Here is my cheap Chinese made Sonor Martini steel 12x5" snare drums set up to sound great. Forgive the poor light.

Re: The matching snare

As I mentioned earlier, I own approx' 85 snare drums. They range in size and type as well as old to new. Each drum is a singular voice. To me a fine snare drum is a work of true beauty.

I have...

Re: A new drummer

I noticed someone said Stick control is dry. IMO it depends on one's approach.

Patterns in 8th notes begin on page 5 and continue over three pages. To simply work through these pages can certainly...

Re: Open handed technique

I am a right handed drummer who began using right hand lead. Some years ago it became obvious to me that open handed would be a more flexible technique. 80% of my playing is now open handed and I...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

I have no idea how the future will pan out. It does seem that superstar musicians are a 20th century phenomenon.

When I speak to parents regarding a child's musical career, I highlight education....

Re: The matching snare

I currently own 8 kits. 5 of which have matching snares. Of course I own around 85 snares so often I take which ever snare I want to hear on the day.

Re: Contrats To Bermuda!

Hi Bermuda.
Recently I have had time to go back over your career with Al. I had never really paid much attention. Too busy with other things I suppose.

What I have since discovered is beautiful....

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

This.


Over the decades I have seen many fall away. Generally the reason was the same. The player had found some excuse not to practise properly. Ignore basics, mistake fun for actual work, and...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Thanks Dutch. I am also grateful you treated me like an adult and not some fool crying for help.
None of which I did.

When I speak to my mates who are full time musicians, none of them treat it...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Cheers mate. :-)

I also want to add that people who do this for a living should be able to speak of it. To talk about my career is not showing off. I am just talking about my job. If this were an...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

We were not married. Anyway, she left me when I broke my back. I am better off. Thanks for your concern.

Also it is not a matter of look at my sacrifice. I knew other kids who died. I am lucky. To...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

You may well be right. I am not one to believe I am infalible. I have made too many mistakes. The visit to the hospital did worry me.

But you know, head down and carry on. I am not gigging for a...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Yes. I ran away from a violent home. Dangerous father. Mother tried to strangle me. Long story. I have spoken of it here in the past. My first job was working on an outback aerodrome. By 18 I'd had...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Well thanks Mikel for your input.

A student's father, who is a builder, recently had a serious operation on his arm. It seems strenuous work over a lifetime has left him worse for wear. This guy...
