Re: who here uses in-ear plugs?

I love my Ultimate Ears ustoms. I use them for listening to musi and I use them everytime I am behind the kit, in rehearsal, and on gigs, exept intimate jazz gigs.

Re: Moeller - which grip?

Perfect, thanks for sharing this. Interesting. I misunderstood your "folkloric" as sarcastic, as it is not a word people often use.

Cheers, and kudos for doing all that work although I know you...

Re: Moeller - which grip?

While I completely support your overall "no limit" message, it seems to me that a beginner at the Moeller will best learn it by learning the German position first.

I am not sure how you learned...

Re: How to make a drum solo over vamp ?

Re: Hands better on pillow than pad - WHAT???

I would second Arky, brady and the prevailing mood: free stroke, freestroke, freestroke. A couple of master opinions, just for keeping a broad perspective:

Re: Moeller - which grip?

Make sure you learnthe free stroke first, otherwise you are cheating yourself.

Re: Hand technique concepts - Jojo Mayer vs. Bill Bachman?

Coming back to the TS' question: JoJo is an internationally known drum "star" and technique guru, and has been for many years.

Bill is a very very good teacher.

Re: The Full Stroke

It is actually pretty generally agreed on, among the masters, that the free stroke is a major technique and I would venture to guess that anybody who teaches teaches the free stroke or a close cousin...

Re: Help with right hand/foot interdependence, PLEASE!

You will get out of the instrument what you put into it. You may not believe me but you have to sacrifice something to get something. An example:

Re: Gretsch Cat Maple disappointment

The only thing extra lugs do is compensate for the lack of stiffness of the hoop. The addition of lugs just mean more precise tuning and the effect of added lugs gets smaller for each added lug.

Re: Gretsch Cat Maple disappointment

If I inserted an extra lug somewhere on your six lug drum, would that make it harder to tune?

Re: Free stroke question

Re: Free stroke question

You don't need to invest very much in the free stroke, so it really is almost free ;-)

Here is what I did:

I have a 12' Vic Firth pad (less than 20 USD) and a

Re: Need help improving rhythm

Re: Just a simple question....

A sensationalist mis-quote, meant to mislead the reader

Read beyond the headline, and you will see the self labels they are comparing are "pessimistic" and "overly optimistic".
