I found that fast doubles really opened up my grip with my left hand, got it up to 260 after a few months.... I can get through Behold Judas now : )

This guy is absolutely sick, and I"m not even into this type of music. How does one get their feet so fast. His feet are faster than my hands!

What are blast beats, or blasts as you called them? I am not familiar with this term. I'm guessing short periods of intense speed.

Lambo 08-16-2005 11:20 AM

Re: Derek Roddy
 
It's a roll between your snare and your bass pedal. With your cymbal hand fill in on the bass notes.

Elemental Nausea 08-16-2005 03:02 PM

Re: Derek Roddy
 
yes the "blast beat" or simply "blast" is something typical for fast death-or black metal.
there are many variations of it but it is mainly like lambo said, the bass drum is played half speed of your hands, your left hand is playing on the snare and your right hand usually on the ride cymbal.(usually hand to hand)
but what do you exactly mean by doubles? i am training my left hand at the moment mainly with multiple bounce rolls with metronome ,of course, by slowly increasing the speed.

Lambo 08-16-2005 04:01 PM

Re: Derek Roddy
 
Doubles = RRLLRRLLRRLLRRLL.... not bouncing and making each a full stroke.

Roddy looks like he's fast forward for crying out loud lol

Did he work out of Stick Control? Who did he study with? Using Futz?

As far as I know, He's pretty much self-taught. He's not using Futz, just straight forward single stroke rolls on Axis A pedals.

Here is an interview with him > http://www.metal-observer.com/articl...&sid=4&id=4519

I met Derrick Roddy working in a local drum shop about 6 months ago. I think he just happened to be in town and was helping out the owner, a friend of his. He's from South Carolina, originally. We talked a while. I played some for him. (Yawn!). He played some of his stuff for me. OMG! HOLY FREAKIN' COW. This guy is so much better than that crap music/band he plays with. In addition to MONSTER chops, he's got the most incredible independence I've EVER seen. Multiple polyrythms between hands and feet. I never understood why any drummer needed 5 pedals on each side of the snare . . . until I saw him show me what to do with them.

In addition to that, he absolutely kills rock, funk, jazz, latin, anything. Put this guy in with an acoustic jazz trio, no problem. Latin/Funk, piece of cake. He does it all.

BIG FAT QUESTIONMARK you are doing blasts at 250?? hand to hand? and for how long?
this speed is terribly sick man , it`s almost roddy speed. do you just want to show off by being so humble because I am almost sure you know how fast this is. and in addition to that you are even saying you are not so into the blast beat...ridiculous

Dude, calm down. He was paying a compliment even though he's not into that style of music. What more could you ask?

Re: Derek Roddy
 
Roddy is one of the few death metal drummers that are fast and tight. A lot of drummer think that if I twitch fast enough, it will speeds things up, but Derek knows that if you want to become extremely fast, you need to practice long and hard.

Derek Roddy
 
What do you think about him?

I think he's one hell of a great metal drummer...but it goes beyond that : he plays jazz, latin music, he have the independance, the coordination, the speed, the control and the creativity.

I listened to the song Faceless One and he shows some of the most creative and progressive part I heard in metal.
He's also very nice and pretty giving of his techniques.

Well...that's what I think...and you?

He also just quit Hate Eternal. I wonder what he'll be up to now.

Re: Derek Roddy
 
Derek's Secret Weapon:

I saw this guy live. His secret to bass drum speed: Derek puts his foot down on the pedal heel up. He then lifts his ankle at the hip. Derek describes it as "The exact opposite of heel down", saying it can be practiced anywhere, even without a pedal, and that it will conserve energy. I'm sure we have all done this when we were sitting down one time. Try it now: keep your foot on the floor but lift and lower your ankle. Derek also has a practice routine on his site; he guarantees an improvement in endurance within 2 months. Plus, Derek plays at around 250 bpm.

Re: Derek Roddy
 
I like this guy when he plays jazz, latin and everything else except black or death metal. I don't like that style at all.

dylon 08-04-2006 09:14 PM

Re: Derek Roddy
 
His humility is admirable, for somebody with his skills and creativity I'd almost expect him to be a bit cocky, but this isn't the case obviously. I'm not typically a fan of metal, but I respect everything he does, including his blast beats--it's easy to tell he just loves his instrument, it shows in his playing.

Derek Roddy (You gotta see this guy)
 
If you like fast AND technical check out this guy and his website...

http://www.derekroddy.com/

tons of awesome speed metal video and clinic video.
check out the "2 over 3 Demo" It's amazing stuff...

Sesh 08-15-2006 11:10 PM

Re: Derek Roddy (You gotta see this guy)
 
I think he may have alreay been mentioned here, but I must say that even as a non death-metal/etreme metal fan I'm a big derek roddy fan.

It's the one and only thing I find a little strange on this site - I noticed he's sometimes brought up by the non-metal fans as an example of 'just another fast-feet guy' but he's actually a truly amazing drummer, and a lot more than a pair of axis pedals.

I'd love to get a lesson with him if I'm ever anywhere near!

people like roddy are an honour to technical death metal.Respect

Re: Derek Roddy
 
I personally have to say that he´s my favourite drummer in the metal community.
And I say 'best' not only because of his because but his technique applied on the drums is very unique. Most of people love him because of his speed but I find him Totally Creative and Totally Fast

You RULE DEREK! :)

Have you ever see him or heard him play jazz?
HE RULEZ TOO!

Also check out Tony Laureano and George Kollias.

DEREK is a great drummer and practice is paying off BIG time...

but you are confused George Kollias is the one who plays double bass at 265 in extreme Music.
DEREK said he did not believe anyone could hold anytthing past 255 till George and a few others proved him wrong....

Tim

I know George and have seen him play many times (over 10) I have NEVER seen him play single stroke DB over 255 in a playing situation.... To this day. Yes there are some NILE tunes that are in the 265 range but like all of us...his feet float just a little. Besides, this is another case of putting words in my mouth. I said, on my forum... that at the TIME, nobody was playing over 255 or 260. Are drummers such as George getting closer? Yes they are but... I STILL haven't seen a drummer play 16th note singles over 255 in a PLAYING situation.
Please read more carefully.
Cheers.
