Re: Seeking Metal Drummer with mics

Yeah, I agree - that price range is an outright joke!
It would even be a joke if the drummer came in for the recording, being 100% prepared for the specific material and having learned all parts 'in...

Re: Hybrid drummers can I have your attention please?

I'm using both singles and doubles on my feet. Do I qualify as a hybrid drummer?
Just kidding. - Altough... I wasn't sure what the OP meant by 'hybrid drummers' at first.

Re: Looking for good double bass pedal techniques.

"Other than the heel toe" - what do you mean? Can you do it already? Or don't you like how it feels? Or the sound, as you might not be able to get the 2nd stroke as even as the 1st? Do you imply the...

Re: how to learn patterns that go over the bar line

I'm not really doing what you're describing but I'm improvising/mixing up patterns/rudiments a lot. I'd say there's 2 things to pay attention to:

Re: Getting the 'pumping forearm' motion into fast doubles?

That has been taking some time to learn for me, too, and it feels a bit harder in left hand lead. So keep on, you'll get there.

Re: Arguement with Guitarist over time signature

Personally I don't really understand why there's a problem viewing that pattern as triplets in a 4/4 context. I wouldn't prefer 12/8 measure but triplets, but that's just me.
