Re: taking care of your body

Great comments, everyone! I would add to always keep yourself hydrated (with WATER), and always be examining your set-up to see that each part of it is in a position that allows your body to use its...

Re: Q: Ride position and economical of movement

BTW, if you watch my youtube videos, that's where my cymbals were BEFORE I went through this process. Here's where they are now.

Re: Q: Ride position and economical of movement

You're singin' my tune dude. I like the idea of closing your eyes and putting your hand and stick where they WANT to be. I would add that this can help determine the angle of the ride as well.

Re: Spang-a-lang subtle or...

I don't think the way a swing or shuffle pattern is played really has anything to do with how it's written. It's one of those stylized rhythms (like Afro-Cuban or Brazilian styles) that can't REALLY...

Re: Keith Carlock drum fill

RRLL KK RLRLRL
SSSS KK TTSSSS

R=right hand
L=left hand
K=kick (right foot)
T=tom

Re: Anyone digging Keith Carlock?

Holy crap, YES! Kieth is a certified groove merchant! Unbelievably clean and tasty on the Steely Dan stuff. I saw him about two years ago in New York with Wayne Krantz, Tim Lefevre (LeFay?) on...

Re: Pleasant surprise in preparing for a studio session

Pleasant surprise in preparing for a studio session

So I've got a studio gig coming up next week, recording music for Hallmark E-Cards (or something like that, I know it's for Hallmark).

Anyway, one of the tunes we're recording is "I'll Tumble 4...

Re: Beauford open hand technique.

Take it slow tempo-wise, but also in terms of complexity. Before you start trying to do all sorts of craziness with your right hand, get really comfortable just playing the backbeat with your right...

Re: Consistency of musical performance

Practicing more will increase the ability of what your hands and feet CAN do, not what they WILL do. Our bodies and brains work very differently in the context of a performance and all the things...

Re: What's In Kansas City MO?

Explorer's is great (8050 Wornall Rd.). Lots of toys to play with and the owner, Wes, has a huge collection of vintage drums.

The 18th & Vine area is ok, it's kind of overdone and fake, but the...

Re: Last drummer to blow you away?

I saw bassist/vocalist Esperanza Spalding last month and her drummer, Otis Brown III was a certified badass. He didn't play a bunch of choppy craziness, he was just a tasty groove merchant. ...

Re: Effortless Mastery by Kenny Werner

I love this guy and this book! It's really helped me enjoy music more, get out of my own head, be less judgmental of myself and just be thankful for every chance I get to play.

I saw him do a...

Re: Playing Without Practice

I think being able to play with a group for the first time is an essential skill for being a working drummer, especially in the recording arena. I've played a lot of gigs cold with no rehearsal,...

Re: For you jazz guys...

I don't think it has to be this complex. You can do your own versions of existing tunes by just tweaking one or two aspects. For example, you can keep the harmony and melody the same, but change...

Re: The First Circle by Pat Metheny

I know this tune, played it, love it. If you haven't already, listen to the original version by Metheny, and a recording of the big band version. With odd/mixed time signatures, I find it helpful...

Re: Rock groups with distinctive drum sounds

Interesting topic. Looking at the other replies, I'm guessing we're talking about the distintive sound of the DRUMS, not the drummers.

A few that leap to mind are Tool, Dream Theatre, and...

I think learning ANY other instrument gives you a greater understanding of music, and that in itself makes you a better drummer.
