Re: Seeking Rare Colaiuta Album

Sort of a side track of this conversation, but . . .

The tough thing for me with transcriptions is never the mechanics of the stickings. It's always trying to memorize the phrase. I've pretty...

Re: Seeking Rare Colaiuta Album

Awesome double_G! I'll have to give that a try when I get back into woodshedding later this year.

I'm happy to pay for a copy but I'm hoping to find a better deal than $50 for a used one!

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Does anybody know where to get a copy of the album "Images" by Bill Meyers? It's Vinnie in 1986 . . . and he is on fire. The compositions are also incredible!

I have been unable to track down a...

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

I have one of these and it's great. They aren't making them anymore, but you can still find them new at some stores. Not for long!

Re: I'm getting into this now

His playing is truly amazing.

You must also purchase a copy of Tim Watterson's DVD if you are going to get serious about bringing your foot speed to that level.

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta Technique Question

When you already have the capability to play something, it won't take long to learn a particular set of exercises. For example, because I've spent time with The New Breed, I find that it's really...

Re: Thomas Lang bass drum practice pad thingy?

Do these devices do any harm to your pedals? It seems a bit harsh to be pounding on a solid surface.

Re: Claus Hessler

I have studied Claus's work extensively. He is one of my favorite drummers. His phrasing is some of the most unique of all players today.

I worked from "OpenHanded Playing Vol 1" for about a year,...

Re: Virgil Donati

"In This Life" is my new favorite album of all time. Virgil isn't just a monster drummer. He's an outstanding composer and arranger, as well. 3 years in production, and well worth the effort!

It's...

Re: "Get Lucky" - John JR Robinson with Daft Punk

It sounds like Omar tearing it up on "Giorgio by Moroder" and "Beyond." His style is pretty easy to distinguish from JR, from the hi-hat alone.

I just want to know what kind of mic they're using...

Re: "Get Lucky" - John JR Robinson with Daft Punk

Yeah I got the DVD for less than $10 usd.

I can't remember the name of the guitarist on the session videos on it, but wow . . . the tone . . . *mind blown again*

"Get Lucky" - John JR Robinson with Daft Punk

I heard this and immediately ordered his DVD.

Honestly, I haven't heard a groove like this since the legendary recordings of Jeff Porcoro and Carlos Vega. The production is also exceptional.
