Re: Dennis Chambers

Saw him last night with Mike Stern. Either he's fully recovered or I want some of what he's got. Holy smokes, what a show!

Re: Jojo Mayer: Secret Weapons Part 2

No, very few exercises. Much like Part 1. Lots of explanation and demonstration, very clear, well done, but very few exercises.

Re: Drummer diagnosed with musician's dystonia

Me too. I'm getting a referral to a neurologist who specializes in musician's dystonia (one of the nice things about living in Boston). I'll let you know what I find out. By the way, for my case,...

Re: Robotic Prosthesis Turns Drummer into a Three-Armed Cyborg

I'm guessing that lots of the hype ("three-arm cyborg") is coming from the press, not the researcher himself. The researcher is probably trying to do good and may in fact be highly experienced with...

Re: Practicing rudiments without a pad or metronome. Bad idea?

Maybe Drumpants (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1400947701/drumpants-an-entire-band-in-your-pocket?ref=live). I think they'll have a built-in metronome too.
