Like the way you have set up your toms! Mine are the same (plus a 16 on the right). So many drummers prefer only two toms with massive space for the ride and big gap from rack to floor...
Great playing, and playing open-handed seems to simplify that song.
It's great to hear what your drums can sound like when mic'ed like in a studio. I also found surprisingly little difference between snares (wood, metal, piccolo...) in recorded sound. Rimshots especially seem to be similar on any snare.
My favourite DC work is with French guitarist Bireli Lagrene, on the albums "Front Page" (2001) and "Foreign Affairs" (1988).
Also the track Blue Matter with Scofield is a classic.
Check them out In the studio messing about... :)
Fabulous! Is that the famous "Henry Adler Video" that someone flogged for years on rmmp?
Watching now, love those old and wise instructors...
Edit: never seen traditional grip explained this way (at 9:00), it makes sense!!
Very nice! Great idea to just record the drums, most covers have the original mixed on top, which can cover up mistakes, and also uses copyrighted material without permission.
Wish I was that tight, and I've been playing for 30 years :o
I've been to several of his solo performances and he was very friendly and soft-spoken. Wouldn't blame anybody for trying to make money out of their work. Also I imagine meeting loads of fans personally can be stressful.
On a side note, fans of Bozzio's Zappa recordings will notice a very...
Seems you are using 'palm upwards'. Most players angle their wrist inwards, which means holding on to the stick only using your thumb for larger strokes.
If you don't want to let go like that watch Tony Williams, he uses the 'inward' angle with full grip, but then the range of motion is...
having lots of fun with this:
great to use instead of a metronome for groove exercises, and inspiring for your own fills as well...
there's tons of different grooves and bpms available, e.g.
I don't think there's a double pedal involved -- right foot only using the Jojo Mayer thing, getting a note out of the heel upstroke. The metal guys use it too.
Interesting what you can do using all the latest techniques:
Push-pull in the hands and heel-toe for your feet... How long have these things been around? Buddy Rich would have been surprised I guess...
