Re: Dave King's Rational Funk ~ thoughts? opinions? comments?

I hadn't seen these before and I have to say, so far, I'm not impressed. He's a really good player and seems very knowledgeable, but I don't like the delivery. It seems like he's trying to be the...

Re: R.i.P Vic Firth

Sad news. We've lost so many of the titans of that era in the last few years.

RIP, Vic Firth.

Re: Jazz ride - triplet and 16th note

There really isn't a rule for switching between swing feel and straight 8ths. Some music is written that way. An example would be Eighty-One from the Miles Davis recording, E.S.P. Each soloist plays...

Re: Just saw "The Wrecking Crew" movie

I need to see the movie, but this is startling news to hear about Lang, if true. I was just talking to a musician friend who teaches at a local music school about Lang. At this point in his career, I...

Re: I'm a jaded music industry guy

Okay, I get you. Yes, I can relate to that. I guess I see less of this particular type of ensemble than you are receiving regular doses of, so it didn't strike that same nerve for me. But sure, over...

Re: I'm a jaded music industry guy

I don't like the Kevlar sound, but I like the clip just fine. I must not be as jaded or something.

Re: Hal Blaine's Monster set w/ Donn Bennett

Just watched this. Fantastic. I love the "Set 1" thing on the drum cases. It's amazing how much of what we all know about drums and how they're supposed to sound came from that particular set, and...

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

I dunno. That Sullivan dude who went over 1,300 singles uses a push-pull technique that has a lot more in common with Jojo than the shiver technique.

Re: Drumming dreams

I can't remember ever having a dream that involved the drums in any way. I did have a very attractive girl once tell me she had a dream about me playing the drums and she mentioned that I was really...

Re: New Guru!

hey, spleen. I know some of those names from the Internet and forums, but not personally. There definitely have been some great corps people from the state, though!

Alex, that's amazing. Between you and Anthony, you guys make me so jealous of the musicians you've worked with.

Re: seamlessly switching between singles and doubles around the kit

I would say that just turning to page one and working through the exercises on that page alone will give you a big increase in facility transitioning from singles to doubles.

I don't think it's...

Re: seamlessly switching between singles and doubles around the kit

You'll get lots of different suggestions, and there's no one right answer. Here's mine: Get Stick Control. It's a great book, considered one of the best ever written for drummers, and specifically...

Re: Tony Williams

For the Tony die-hards: Have you cats checked this out? http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=1650

Back in the late-1990s, Bill Laswell, who played with Tony in Arcana, was asked by Verve to choose an...

Re: New Guru!

I'd be down for that, Larry. Just don't turn your back on me with those Gurus....

Not above running off with them when you're not looking,

Re: New Guru!

BEautiful drum, and what a sound! Typical Guru, just outstanding.

Spleen, you're a fellow Michigander? Do you play out in the SE area?

Re: Jazz

Don't worry about what's harder, just know that learning more about any aspect of music is going to add to what you're capable of, which you can apply to everything else you already do.

Re: Info on this vintage Sonor kit?

The 14.5 threw me. Is that a normal size for that era?

Re: Info on this vintage Sonor kit?

Hahaha. Someone should advertise a set of drums on Ebay that way: "Used by Bernard Purdie on early Beatles tracks." You know someone would pay top dollar for those.

Those sizes are funky. Maybe a...

Re: Are 20" Bass Drums Easier To Play On Than 22"

There's the feel and then there's the sound. I like the sound of an unported head best. On my 18" that I use for small-group jazz, that's what I use, and it's mostly heel-down technique on a...

Re: 12x8 or 13x9 for single rack tom??

If you're playing amplified, backbeat-oriented music like rock or pop, I would go with the 9x13.

Re: The ubiquity of smaller kits

You might be right. That thought has occurred to me. But I'm seeing drum sets now that are configured in a completely different way than the standard bass, snare, toms. Sets that include different...

Re: Brush technique

The main reason for brushes coming into existence was to provide the softer sweeping sounds you hear on jazz classics and ballads. But sure, you can use them like sticks also. They are great for...
