Re: Keeping Time On The Hi-Hat With The Left Foot

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

I switched to a one-up, one-down setup about four years ago and I've never looked back. I did it to challenge myself to break some habits where I would play certain patterns on auto-pilot instead of...

Re: Buddy Rich trap case

Mike Clark described Tony Williams' trap cases the same way; rusted pieces of hardware, old cigars, etc. It's probably instructive that some of the best drummers in the world play their gear and...

Re: Tuning

As mentioned, the Bob Gatzen videos are great.

Practice pad drum set suggestions

I would like to purchase a practice pad set that mimics as much as possible the layout of a real drum set. I want to be able to practice set playing and reading exercises at home and, living in an...

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

I love it. Simon was a huge influence on me. He belongs in discussions of the greats more often. I believe he grew up playing big band music with his father, yes? Can't recall exactly the details,...

Re: Your midweek smile :)

The ability to hit the drums so consistently and play with such solid time at that age is crazy! I didn't realize the parts of the brain that control those functions could be developed that much at...

I saw Charlie live with Ornette and Pat Metheny on the Song X tour! Jack DeJohnette and Denardo Coleman both on drums. The funny part was watching members of the audience (at Hill Auditorium in Ann...

I hear you, Num. I just listened to that track yesterday. I dug out my Ornette stuff yesterday and listened to all those classics.

Re: Name that rhythm

Great thread idea, Larry. Bo did a nice piece on different rhythms every drummer should know a while back. Things like bossa nova and such. I think he even demonstrated how to play each groove.
