    afro cuban-ish uptown funk

    Just like the title says, I had fun playing some afro cuban over a straight funk song. haven't figured all out yet (especially the last 16 bars). I think I need to put more cha cha cowbell in it but not sure how. Here it is : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VmFsTqgBF8

    Fast swing (Cherokee ) groove 79 GE 2.0

    So here I am , playing along/reading tommy igoe groove essentials 1 and 2. Haven't done it in a while and it shows all my flaws. I get to 79 and it shows fast swing.

    Sooooo. I have a yamaha tour custom moto-x special edition kit with a 24/16/12 and a snare. Love the sound of it and like the looks of it too. I just prefer natiral wood. I was thinking about removing all the lacquer and coat it with linden oil . I did the same on a cheap 5000 yammy kit a while...

    Just replaced my hihat drop clutch

I was never closed enough and if I set it up with the cymbals a little too close while open, a hard hit would lock it in open , defeating the purpose. So I got a dwsm9213 and now I can control how much sizzle...

    Simple beat??? Not so much!!

    I was listening to john mayer's vulture live with Steve Jordan and playing along. Simple beat with a driving hihat. I was like "let me practice some easy indrpendance stuff". Turned music off , kick on 1 and 3 snare on 2 and 4, same eighth note driving hihat and open the hat every 3 1/8th note...

    Shorter hihat stand and cymbal stand

    I am looking for a hihat and a cymbal stand that are shorter then 17". Thst would be taken apart. The longest piece has to be 17" so it can fit in my yamaha hipgig stool/canister/throne/hardware storage thing. A hihat with a very flat pedal would be icing on the cake .
