Re: I HIT TO HARD

Thanks Bill. Great lesson.

I studied with Dom Famularo for about 2 years once a month in the mid 2000"s. We worked on a lot of free stroke and moeller stroke things. So I really think I know what...

Re: I HIT TO HARD

I know that one of the reasons why I hit so hard when playing live is because I'm afraid that my drums are not projecting over the amps from the guitar and the bass. This happens both when my kit is...

I HIT TO HARD

When I play live that is. At band practice I hit just fine. But I guess its the fact that I cant hear all that well live mixed with adrenaline that makes me start bashing.

The bad thing is that...

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

My guitar player is adamant about everything being played in perfect time, with no push and pull. For myself I don't mind a little bit of push and pull in parts of songs. As long as its not drastic I...

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

Is the drummers metronome app fully programmable for full songs like the metron app? Also, does anyone know if metron only works with Apple products? I have an android based phone.

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

I feel that. My guitar player wants to change the tempos of the songs all the time. One day he thinks a song is to slow, the next day to fast. And thats when the tempo has not changed from day to day...

Bands and tempo arguments

As a drummer our main job is time keeping. The goal is to have perfect time all the time. That said I find it funny how in a lot of situations that the other members of the band forget that the time...
