Re: Good exercises to do away from the kit and pad?

Hard to argue with you on that. It does ingrain the various patterns and get the different limbs used to separation though......even if it doesn't give you the specific "feeling" of playing on a kit....

Re: Good exercises to do away from the kit and pad?

Totally agree. Any of the books with specific 4 way co-ordination exercises can easily be adapted to slapping thighs and tapping feet when away from the kit. Hands and feet don't necessarily have to...

Re: A new movie called Whiplash

Ask the usher to leave a light on and the door open. Works for my seven year old when she's afraid of the dark. :-)

Re: how to use Stick Control

What a strange turn this thread has taken. Not for beginners? Really? Have you looked at the thing? I'd argue it's the most perfect book for a beginner there is. Any idiot with a right and left hand...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Really like this one mate. Love the blonde and the size options are right up my alley.....and as much as I'm loathe to admit it, I'm really sold on the the "generic" look. I note the floors are...

Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Dare I suggest Time Functioning Patterns as a good start point?

I'm new to this material myself....and as has been alluded to, you can start with any of the books as they're all designed to be...

Re: Pinky finger in the push pull

He's a fine hand technician and so much of what he says with respect to arm/hand/wrist/finger motion as well as general technique and stick control just makes perfect sense. He's also a member here...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

The gear that I've bought, sold and traded over the years will attest that I'm not overly sentimental, I guess. I do have some snares, cymbals and hi hats that have been with me so long now that I'd...

Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Thanks mate. I appreciate the insight. DVD ordered now too.

As an aside, I'll also throw my hat in the ring and request any info on the series that you'd be willing to put forward. Given you've...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I'd dearly love to argue the point. But after reading through this thread, I'd be hard pressed to convince anyone to the contrary. There is more than enough evidence on display here to suggest you...

Re: Cleaning a Ludwig LM400

I just use a microfibre cloth mate.

Can't offer you much help on the chrome polish I'm afraid. Never bothered getting that elaborate myself. I just give 'em a wipe over once in a while and never...

Re: Cleaning a Ludwig LM400

Totally agree.

Pitting doesn't occur because a drum is dirty........nor does is NOT occur because a drum is clean. It is a result of a breakdown in the bonding process between aluminium and...

Re: Got about 15 mins each day to increase speed... How should I practice?

I've gotta ask mate. Since I joined this forum in 2009, you've only ever asked one question.......you may have started a host of different threads on it and asked it in ever so slightly different...

Yes. James opened a door that only ever lead in one direction, I'm afraid.

Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Saw that for a reasonable price just recently. I did wonder at the time if it was designed as a supplement to the books. Do you think it makes a good addition from the outset, or am I better just...

Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Just ordered a few of these myself. Sticking Patterns arrived yesterday, but as yet all I've had time to do is thumb through the book. Hopefully, Time Functioning and Technique Patterns will arrive...

Re: 5 Variations on the Six Stroke Roll

A six stroke roll is traditionally played with the same note value allotted to all the notes of the pattern. Whilst the sticking is certainly one of the inversions of a paradiddle-diddle, RllrrL is...

Re: New vs Classic Supraphonic

No.

To be honest, with the vast amount of both pre-dampened heads and external muffling options that are available today, internal mufflers are just not necessary.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Careful now. The forum might have cause to think.

To actually THINK, goddamn it!!

Perish the thought. I just wanna opine. That's enough. I don't wanna have to think about it too.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Fair enough. My apologies for a thin hide, in that case.

I'm giving up anyway......too busy forming some opinions I'm not prepared to lend any semblance of thought to. But they're mine......or...

Yeah, I notice you do a bit of that. Doesn't seem to serve you too well though, does it?

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Seriously? Is that what you think my angle was? After all that, the only thing you glean is that I want you....or anyone else for that matter......to agree with me? Talk about missing the point....
