Re: Can you read? Elvin couldn't?

Agreed. As a professional of 20+ years, most band leaders assume you read music and are put off if you don't. Maybe 50 years ago you could specialize, just play "jam session" type gigs and get by,...

Re: For all you jazzers!

Excellent link, thanks. In regards to the offset quarter note triplet snare/bass drum 2-over-three polyrhythm:

Once you get it down, play a waltz ride pattern to match the bass drum- that is, so...

Re: why do alot of drummers only use 2 toms?

I recently went from 3 toms to 2. The primary reason is the two jazz clubs I play most have house kits with one rack, so I'm trying to get used to that by doing it with my own kit as well. The...

Re: Drumless jazz??

Jim Hall, "Something Special" Oscar Peterson also did some without drums, I believe.

Re: Worst idea in Drumming

When spokes came out, I tried to imagine the meeting at Remo when they were conceived. It probably started with, "Holy crap! All our distributors just refused delivery of 50,000 rototoms because...

Re: Just got a noise complaint!

That line pissed me off. Freakin' rich people often have the least sympathy because they don't know what it's like. Sure, we should all just buy practice space in a non-residential area. Then we...

Re: Worst idea in Drumming

Finally! I didn't think I could be the only suspended floor tom hater here. It's lonely being a crotchety old jazz drummer sometimes. Anyway, here's a history lesson for you whippersnappers:

Re: Worst idea in Drumming

OOOH, cool thread. Off the top of my head- suspended floor toms. What the hell are those about!? I don't need 'em to ring that long, they bounce all over the place, I can't rest my sticks on them,...

Re: Name this clave

I don't think there's a name for this. If the second note was one earlier, it would be 3:2 rumba.

Re: Okay, I've Got To Brag A Little

Congratulations, I love playing festivals, it's the best way to check out other bands. I have a similar story. I had a band with my brother about 12 years ago. Really good band, made one record,...

Re: France?????

From what I understand, it's pretty good. I'm near the end of a 2 1/2 week tour of France, and we had to pick up a French bass player when our bass player left mid-tour. French musicians enjoy...

Re: So, what is it with Steve Gadd

This is really funny. I was talking to a bass player freind about this clip a year ago, and we thought Steve was the clear "winner" (ugh, need a better word) because he just layed down the fattest...

Re: This Software blows every drum machine ever out of the water ...

I'm not worried at all. In the '80s I thought drum machines were something to worry about, and I was right- a large segment of music buyers now prefer drum machines to live drums and we've all felt...

Re: Played out songs the masses love to dance to

Do you know what's worse than having to play "Moondance" at a wedding? Having to play it behind amateur tap dancers at their recital. OK, I wasn't on this particular gig (though I have done one of...

Here's the link to that interview. (http://www.melodicrock.com/interviews/herbieherbert.html) It's hella-huge, I just spent over an hour reading it, but lots of stuff in there.

Re: Don't stop believing

That's a great link, really illuminates the creative process of a BAND, and shows how a simple embellishment changes a good tune into a great one. Someone asked about Journey's "split" and Steve...

Re: Don't stop believing

Well, OK, more disclosure...I find it a little difficult, some of us do. My drumming is about half trad grip, half matched, and all right hand lead. I can execute the pattern fine, but it doesn't...

Re: Don't stop believing

Man, that's crazy. I'd like to see a drummer play "50 ways" just playing money beat!

OK, full disclosure, I've learned through this thread I've been playing this song wrong. In my defense, I...

Re: 10 Best Drum Songs to Learn as a Beginner

I would put a big asterisk next to those recommending playing with the White Stripes. I think "Seven Nation Army" is mostly in time, but a lot of their material has a more, uh, "organic" time feel...
