    Shuffle beat

    I've always struggled with a shuffle beat so I never really practiced them. The last few weeks I've been forcing myself to try and learn a few different patterns and I'm really starting to enjoy these beats. I'm up to 90 bpm and they still sound clean and in time.

    Storing drum shells?

    I'm sure this question had been asked before at some point. This is a extra practice kit that will be stored in an temperature controlled room for probably about 6 months. Should I leave the heads tight or loose? Should I stack them like you see in music store or not? Space is not a concern...

    I have the opportunity to purchase an older drum set that is in need of a restoration. I'm thinking of sanding it down and restaining the shells as a winter project.

    Pure Massacre

    The Band Silver Chair, kind of a forgotten band from the 90's. I heard Pure Massacre this week on the radio. I have figured out the drum beat of the verse and chorus but the beginning of the song I'm struggling with. I think the drummer is playing accented single stroke 16th notes or possibly...
