Re: Tony Williams

Water Babies (https://youtu.be/mNbBaBOgUfc) has been one of my favorite records for a long time. Basically all stuff that didn't make it onto Filles de Kilimanjaro. Everything's kind of unfinished,...

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

Cool! I hope you like it. He uses a shorthand for notating some of the stickings. You will probably figure them out, but feel free to ask here if you have any questions-- or just email me directly.

Re: How do I tell my friend that his expensive custom handmade snare is shit?

Well, you could handle it Belushi-style (https://youtu.be/8V_hCqO6UQs). Ask him is you can see his drum real quick, and instantly throw it in front of a truck.

Or do the Hollywood thing and frame...

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

Jeff-- Yes, it's a major work, definitely!



That's what I figured-- maybe you can call them and get a cheaper media rate. Or if you order several things at once-- I don't know if it's...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

That is something you have inferred. You thought I was "judging" you with my first response, and it's been a crap show ever since. Gotta go, buddy, I have a session to play, a bunch of students, then...

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

Right-- I think you should mix that up with things you can actually play at normal performance tempo-- find something where you can do a full page of patterns and drill that. Maybe 50/50 hard/slow...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Well, my threads are never boring anyway. What a crap show.

What's hilarious is that I'm the easiest, nicest serious teacher in the world. Most guys will terminate your studies after three...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

Good move-- you'll probably get more gigs. Like a friend of mine learned to play bass when she joined an all-female Merle Haggard cover band, and now she probably gigs more than I do.

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

I don't think you can focus on just one book and learn everything you need. Stick Control is good, but extremely tedious if it's the only thing you're doing. And the musical possibilities of the...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Every single comment I've made has been substantive, about your initial question.

Like I said, IDGAF about fighting with you, but this is my subject, and I don't need your permission to talk about...

Re: Got your old method books?

I like that Ron Fink book in there-- Drumset Reading.

That Roy Burns funk book is good, too-- that's from the dark ages of ghost notes. Not a word in there about them.

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

Wrist Twisters is great! Everybody doing a lot of snare drum practice should have it. It is very dense, and many of the exercises require a lot of focus-- you can't just sit down and burn out a lot...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Personally, I don't incorporate anything. I practice what I practice, and maybe it will make it into my playing, maybe not. There's a quote from Jerry Bergonzi...

Re: Got your old method books?

I still use my copy of Syncopation from 1983 every day. It fell apart years ago, so I had to put it in a binder.

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Hell, I'm one of them. I know how to play. As they do, and Griener, who posts occasionally, and Boomka, who we don't see much of any more.



Playing, in other words-- that's all I ever did....

Re: Training protocols for increasing speed?

Well, while we're at it: Can you do it at any volume? Can you do it with any kind of stick or mallet, on any instrument?

I mean, we can get into "can you do any musically useful vocabulary beyond...

It's pretty straightforward: Call the professor and talk to him or her about itó whoever is going to hear your audition, then get a number for a grad student at that school and get some lessons to...

Re: The jazz ride pattern

I play them at a pretty even volume, or I will emphasize the quarter note pulse, or I may accent the & of 2/& of 4. I don't have a default, and I rarely play it without variations-- it all depends on...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Sounds fine. Only problem with the variations is that your rhythm gets shaky when you do them. No reason not to be playing the hihat on 2 and 4 when you're doing this.

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

This is the strangest conversation I've ever been a part of. I would ask what you think I said, but I'm really not interested.

Serious students know what I'm talking about because they're already...
