Re: Songs with fast / tricky single bass drum patterns

Are you sure that trampled under foot is just four-on-the floor. I am quite sure the main beat has a kick on 1, 1& and a double on the & of 3 and the a of 3 (leading into the 4).

Re: hi hat opening sound

In the end it all depends on what you are going for. Do you want a strong accent? Or do you want more of a " flavor "? Generally when you want a strong accent you use the shaft of the stick on the...

Re: single stroke speed

The speed you need, is the speed you need. If you play music that requires fast singles, you should have fast singles. That being said playing 16ths at 200 bpm is a fine goal, and one that for many...

Re: Chops?

As a side-note. Chops are relative. What's fast and complicated for one drummer is slow and simple for another.

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

Was at a jam session a few weeks back. It was in this local dive. The people were rugged, and so was the kit. The toms were tuned dead. I mean ultra dead, no sound could be gotten from these taped up...

Re: Two-handed 16th rhythms on the hats.....

They appear often. If you want to know an up tempo one. Try Everlong by the Foo Fighters. That one will build your singles chops for sure.

Re: Is one genre of music really harder to play than another?

This is the answer methinks. What's in our nature is easy. What is not in our nature is hard. It's not limited to genres though.

Re: Structuring Practice for Beginners?

I've got a more general comment. I often see players over divide their practice time. They'll play 10 minutes of this and 10 minutes of that. For me, such a regime does not work. I like working in...

Re: Fills

I like starting fills on the a's. Kind of like lead in. I don't like starting on a whole count, it feels kind of squared off. That being said though. I find that leading into fills like this just...

Re: Disco beat - hihat technique

The weird thing about this beat is that, if you play heel up on both feet, you are more or less hopping on your seat. You have to get used to this feeling. A good posture and the right throne height...

Origin of the paradiddle and its original use

There's something I've been wondering for a while now. What is the origin of the paradiddle and what was it's use? As drum-set players we use the paradiddle, and rudiments derived from it to get...

Re: Drumming Idiosyncrasies

Can't play with long sleeves either. Sticks sometimes even snag on them. I notice it more with my left hand than my right hand. I also don't like playing with anything in my pockets, like my wallet...

Re: Thoughts on fill placement

Though it's fun to think of new ways to approach playing fills, I find that usually I just let the song dictate where to fill. Thinking usually results in stiffness. Just let it flow.

Re: Playing drums dynamically

When a drummer has good dynamics, he or she has good volume control. So no, it doesn't just mean playing softer, it can also mean playing louder. You should be able to play at the " correct " volume...

Re: Tom positioning

Looks fine to me. Besides, dents aren't just caused by steep angles. They are also caused by hitting like a gorilla. Just don't hit to hard and you'll be fine.

Re: Playing accents

I used Benny's method. It's an old concept that he brought back into the spotlight. It's very effective in many situations.

My tip is to start slow (60 bpm) and stay loose. Slowly up the tempo....
