Hi Everyone,

I have been playing drums for about seven or eight years now, and I practice a few hours almost every day. Recently, though, I've hit somewhat of a rut. I'm often bored, and I find...

Re: Stanton Moore here

Wow, that's a pretty incredible video.

He's a great drummer, I want to look more into his playing and try to learn something from it.

Re: How to listen to music

I came across this video a few months back, and I really think it's pretty eye-opening. She's one of the best percussionists in the world, and I think everyone who plays an instrument should hear...

I'd probably say Rush or the Stones. That or a gig with Chick Corea. I know these have all been mentioned, but the first two would be great atmospheres and Chick would just be awesome musically.

Re: Have you ever met a famous drummer?

I've met Weckl, Erskine, Steve Smith, Dafnis Prieto and Igoe.

Other than that, I would love to meet more.

Re: THE POINT OF FRUSTRATION

It happens to all of us so don't get too worried. Really, you have some good days and some bad days and that's just how it works.

Keep at it and it'll all work out.

Re: Practice- To book or not to book

Right, I guess the best way to figure this out is to experiment on my own. I've been doing this, but just trying to seek some guidance from others as well.

Just had a bad day on the kit, but I'll...

Re: Practice- To book or not to book

Alright, I understand what you're saying. But what kind of things do you work on in your 70% non-book practice? What's a typical routine for you?

Thanks for the reply, by the way.

Cool, Skreg, thanks for the input.

I actually recently started making schedules for practicing in a journal of sorts, and then I analyze how everything went after each session. It's starting to...

Yes, I understand that you're just trying to help out so thanks. I usually only record with audio but perhaps some time soon I can get some video going.

I was just wondering what people like...

Re: Single Strokes Around The Drums

Wow, thanks for sharing. That guy is, like you said, so fluid. I'll work on it and see if I can't gain some more fluidity.

Also, to Drum-head, thanks for the addition to the Virgil Donati stuff--...

Re: Single Strokes Around The Drums

Thanks to both of you guys for the exercises.

I will look into the Virgil Donati stuff- I've seen videos of him like the one you posted and he's absolutely ridiculous. I wish I could do that, for...

Re: Open-Handed Players: When did you start?

I agree with this comment. I only sporadically play open-handed, and while I can function like this, everything is just a little bit harder. I find that it's similar to learning traditional grip at...

Single Strokes Around The Drums

Re: Hip Pain in Bass Drum Leg?

Thanks a lot everyone. I guess my only choice really is to experiment with seat height and pay special attention to technique.
