Hey Allen...thanks brother. Means a lot.Hey Derek,
What I love about your attitude is that you are willing to play anything from death metal (which you're most known for) to jazz, fusion, and progressive rock, among many other styles! How do you feel playing in a particular musical context (like death metal) is similar to playing in other styles, and what are the challenges that come with playing a wide variety of styles-if there are any, of course?
Thanks a lot for writing back. One more question: Whatever happened to your forum and will it every be coming back?I use that hand foot exercise in 4 combos...
Do these 4 combos at various tempos. Within your comfort and push tempo out of your comfort level and come back.
Doing these with a time limit....say 10 minutes each...will make sure you can comfortably get through the entire 10 minutes at your comfort tempo. When pushing....don't be concerned about cleanliness, etc you focus on that when you come back to your comfort level.
Wow, that song is fantastic. I'm listening to the rest now.
