Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

Thanks BrentCN, please know I didn't take it as a personal attack. :) I was curious if anyone actually had the nerve to directly make that claim.

I'm glad you like my book & DVD! happy drumming...

Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

What books/videos/DVD's have promised to replace a teacher? Nothing can or will replace a teacher giving you direct feedback, but a lot of these resources are infinitely better than having nothing at...

Re: Rudiments & drumset application

I couldn't possibly agree more. My schtick is to train everything carefully and thoroughly and max out the toolbox so that you can then get lost in the musical with more than enough technique to play...

Re: Rudiments & drumset application

For the most part I think paradiddles (& that little rudiment family) are simply logistic rudiments in order to change sides. They do also allow you to pop out bigger accents within an even stream of...

Re: Oriollo Phantom, spun aluminum

Now that is a beautiful snare drum! Great finish and I love the low mass simplicity. Congrats on a beautiful work of art that I'm sure sounds great as well. :)

Re: Phil Rudd pleads guilty

Kids: don't do drugs. I've never seen anything good come from it. I pray that this will be the best thing that ever happened to him, it may get him back on the straight line.

It's hard to listen...

Re: Toning down a ride cymbal

I do the tape thing a little bit as well.

One thing to keep in mind (in case you haven't already checked this out) is that it may sound very different to the microphones or audience acoustically....

Rudiments & drumset application

This started out as a response to another post, but I think it may be useful in starting a discussion on its own:

With my background you might think that I'd be preaching rudiments, rudiments,...

Re: Order of study for Advanced Techniques, Syncopation, 4-Way Coord. and New Breed

I did tons on this in college and in my younger days. One thing to consider is that with syncopation you'll never play the middle beat of the triplet and that eliminates among other things all...

Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

I'm in the same boat, I have a stack of books nearly 2 feet high and half of them haven't even been opened yet. I have the best of intentions though. Maybe one day when I don't have three kids 5 &...

Re: Drumming and tennis

I'm way into racquetball. The last time I played tennis I instinctively went for the back wall shot as the ball passed me only to launch it deep into the parking lot.

Seriously I have a hard time...

Re: How to stop playing slightly ahead of the beat?

I think this video may shed some light, or at least spur on more discussion.

As for your specific rushing/pushing ahead troubles, I try thinking...

So sad, what a huge contribution he made! I'm thankful for all of the Yes music. Thanks Chris.

Re: Keeping Time doing a (buzz) roll as a fill

When playing a buzz roll in time the primary strokes underneath the buzz need to be in time. For a smooth buzz sound, 16th notes around 120-130 works well. When not in that tempo range, try to find...

Re: Any method for fast memorizing long and complex phrases

Good advice so far, but the main thing is repetition! Over and over and over again until it is insultingly easy to remember/recite/play etc.

Another thought, (and this may seem weird, but it's...

Re: Playing both hands in perfect unison

The key to playing clean double stops (unisons) is matching technique, velocity and stick height in each hand.

If one hand is using more fingers (usually the right) and the other more wrist...

Re: Master of Puppets with St Anger snare

It sounds like the snare is just coming through a room mike from 12 feet away. I like other things more.

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Gavin and the band were all clicked in for sure. AND, I'll bet that Gavin programmed the "click" with vocal cues for the band counting off the hits and such.

I saw him in clinic and he was talking...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

I noticed some talk of hairtas in his solo. There are the obvious ones he plays on his feet under the mini-chimes part, but then there's the cool variation at 2:53: his hands play the rlr, and then...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

Phil Collins is by far my biggest influence--he was my first drum hero as I was turned on to Genesis when I was in 6th or 7th grade. He was a monster drummer and that's still my favorite band of all...

Re: Matched grip, yet my left hand is so sad...

Yes Grolubao, but the wrists can do the same function and just as well in German and American. I prefer American since the other options are readily available as well.
