Re: How do I get out of the "drumming blues"?

I think a lot of musicians I know get "the blues" from time to time when they compare themselves with others who they feel are better than they are. If your goal is to be THE BEST, you will always...

Does anyone have a sheet they can share that has hand-written drum notation? I'd love to see how someone else writes out various beats...16ths, rests, etc. Mine looks like chicken scratch,...

Re: Cause of Meter Speeding Up Discovered.

Your body (i.e. mind) has to get used to how long it takes to get from one surface to another, just like it has to learn timing when you play ghost notes and accents. Practice with the metronome did...

Re: Stick Grip Issue

I used it on a pad for a for about a month doing mostly singles and doubles. It helped a lot.

Re: Stick Grip Issue

Indeed, I am.

I, too, had a somewhat "wobbly" left hand at higher tempos. Somehow, somewhere, I read about the hinged sticks and figured "what the hell." (I think it was a review coming out of...

Re: Musicality

I would say musicality is whatever moves or resonates with a person. And I think that it's completely subjective. Like beauty, it's in the eye of the beholder.

If I play something and I find it...

"That Great Gretsch Sound...."

What exactly is that?

I'm considering the Renown Maple for use as a rock kit...10, 12, 14, 16, 20

Anyone own one? What else should I consider?
