Very nice playing indeed! Good website too. What ride cymbal are you using in that video?

INCREDIBLE! Wow, you are very talented. I wish to sound like you someday. I love your quick chops, and sound. Good job man.

Wow. That's some intense playing. I've never seen that kind of speed used in a jazz context. Absolutely incredible!

Thank you Karl!

Good to hear from my neighbours also (I live in Germany too, in Munich, where do you come from?).

Great that you love jazz and dedicate to it (I have nothing against other types of music, of course). I heard your jazz file, you are doing good, just keep studing hard! (like we all do...)

Dear TopCat,

You are very kind, thanks. Beautiful Gretsch you've got...

Best regards,

Wonderful drumming, mate! I loved every moment of it! It's a thrill to see playing like this which should be on the site of www.drummerworld.com, but instead, see it on the forum!! Unbelieveable. Remind me why you aren't on this site again?? Lol. It is interesting that you use a matched grip technique on this genre and style of jazz. I love your playing man! I take it that you are a professional, correct? Like Drummer Karl, if you wouldn't mind checking out my jazz drumming on, 'Take Five', then that would be great! Please comment on it if you listen!

Again, amazing drumming!

Dear funked up,

Thank you so much for the nice words! Where do you come from?
Yes, I'm a professional drummer, also drum teacher at some schools here in Germany. I play matched and traditional, but the first better, therefore the stuff that is most "involved" I play almost always with matched.

I checked out your file, but somehow it wasn't working, at least in my computer. This means: I could access the site with no problem and could see the "player" of your song, but it didn't play anything...

Dear Karl,
I haven't played in Kassel, lately (aprox. in the last 20 years!), 'though about 6 years ago I think I played in Erfurt (reference for others: a town near Kassel), but can't remember anymore with whom, LOL.

Thank you ALL for checking out the stuff!

Alex,

I don't know why the link won't work. How strange. Oh well, thanks for trying! I am from England, and am planning on attending either LCM (Leeds College of Music), Drum-Tech, or Drum Institute next year.

It is great that you play both grips. Versatility is extremely important! :)

Dear funked_up,

Regarding: "I don't know why the link won't work", those are the mysteries of Internet!

I lived in UK (I love UK and it's people) for a short while and gave a clinic at Leeds College of Music in 1982.

Best regards and luck in your carear,

Alex,

You did a clinic at Leeds? That's awesome man! How were the students? I visited a few weeks ago, but the students were on holiday so I couldn't really find out.

Thanks for the good luck, I am sure I will need it!

Dear funked-up,

I didn't see any drumstudent play then, but the students on the other instruments were great (I play with them during the clinic). I understand that is one of the major jazz schools in Europe, and one of the oldest, together with Graz (Austria), Cologne (Germany) and a few others.

I hanged out with the drum teacher then, again, in 1982 (I was 22 years old), he was an australian drummer, Tony Faulkner, who wrote an amazing book , "Solo Transcriptions for Drummers", with transcriptions of jazz drummers (Roach - Haynes - Elvin - Philly Joe - Shelly Mane - Tony), which are among the best, most occurate, transcriptions I've seen so far of these musicians. I don't know if he is still there...He was really nice with me, as everybody else in the school.

Check out some at my site!

Man, that's awesome! Sounds like it is a good place and everyone is nice. They had really nice facilities when I went there to have a tour. I am auditioning at the Christmas time. Do you have any advice for it? I hope Faulkner is still the teacher there!!

Thanks so much for your help,

Tim
