Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Lar, I think Miles said Hermeto was one of the most important musicians on the planet. Don't know the background or context, though. Mainly piano but is a natural and plays anything and everything. ...

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Hadn't heard that. Good grief - moving target is right! Some great moments ... I wouldn't have even picked that it had a meter at all.

Wanted to ask your thoughts on Hermeto Pascoal. A friend has...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Thanks MJ - makes sense to me. So, as with everything in music, you have the choice of tension or release. Sometimes you may want to jar the audience with an abrupt end (eg. The Beatles' She So...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

This what top guys like Jim Keltner have been saying for years - playing Ringo's drum parts isn't as easy or intuitive as it sounds. Leaving large spaces between beats and using odd limb to limb...

Re: My leg(s) get super itchy playing drums?

Maybe it's this? Weird itches can also come from the nervous system. I'm about to find out if a year-long itch that's not be...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#2. I don't think about double bass drums any more or less than I think of timbales. That's stuff that other people do.

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

Early on I said yes to all songs. Times change.

First scratching is Sweet Home Alabama. An enjoyable groove but the melodies and hominess are diabolical.

Almost all Top 40s pop. Also 80s rock...

Re: How our perspective changes

Fully relate to this. I used to love weekends and school holidays and being able to play all day. The neighbours might have dreaded them at times :)



Also fully relate. The day when a few local...

Re: I'm having trouble practicing

Yup, books and DVDs.

I find it helps to settle on something or I jump all over the place and end up drumming along with Steely Dan again. I find it productive to take a beat I play okay but could...

Re: How our perspective changes

It's true. Looking back I am gobsmacked at what I put the neighbours through (as no doubt were they). Machine Head and Pinups full blast, uncoordinated drums over the top of it, slamming out deluded...

Re: Morgan Agren

I never heard of him until a friend sent me this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xsauw4Upv0

The transitions are mind blowing!

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

That is a sad tale, Henri :(

Been playing with the Blue Mabels for about 5 years- lounge, pop, popular jazz, soul, blues, 60s and 70s rock. Vocals, guitar, keys, bass and drums.

We don't play...

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

I've never played a pair of hats that were completely level - with zero tilt. Not in shops or others' kits. At home I've fully uncrewed the tilt thingy and the bottom cymbal is still not entirely...

Re: Stepping outside the box :)

You have the skills to play it but I'm wondering if you desperately need extra projects on top of Guru, family, Fired Up, mixing gigs, your other work and maintaining the property or whether you're...

Re: groove vs chops?

Experienced musicians play new things straight up without practice all the time - jazz musicians used to make a living from doing exactly that. That ability flows off their musical vocabulary, which...

Great post - and effective - now I want to read your book! Are there any versions on websites that sell at normal price to Pacific Mexicans in epub or PDF formats?

Groove is physical in that it's...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Suffice to say, in response to the OP - yes, paring back on your kit can stimulate creativity. This says nothing about creativity and big kits or midsize kits.

Take away a few pieces of a kit and...

Re: Ginger Baker Turns 75: The Strange Life of Rock's Wildest Drummer

Very typical. In the 70s I dampened my drums to sound flat and cardboard boxy. Apart from my lack of tuning skills, I was trying to sound like the drummers I saw in the local bars.

It should be...

Re: A month and no drums

Aren't your ears refreshed, though? I'd imagine a month off would re-sensitise you.

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Excellent drawn out end, Andy, and the crowd were right into it. At that point in the night it's an unstructured energy exchange between band and audience - the experts might say it's expressionist...
