Re: Why are Rudiments Important

The rudiments are at first shackles from which you break free, stronger than you've ever been.

Re: big kit or small kit?

Small kit, big drums!

I gig with a maple Ludwig four piece. 14x22, 9x13, 16x16, 6.5x14.
20" ride, 18"crash/ride, 16" crash, 14" hats.

Not too much to haul around, takes up less space.

Re: Putting foam in drum cases...?

It is pretty quick really ... square the blanket over the case and insert drum, then fold and tuck the flaps. At the gig, unfold flaps and pull out drum, the blanket stays formed to the case ready...

Re: Putting foam in drum cases...?

In my opinion it is best to just buy cheap fleece blankets and wrap the drums before putting them in the cases. Foam soaks up cigarette smoke, moisture, and as it gets old it deteriorates and...

Re: Is solo drumming music?

I think you right ... my dog needs to practice a lot longer before I'll call it really music : )

It is a funny thing though, the times he picks to do it. He sometimes runs up stairs and starts in...

Re: Is solo drumming music?

Interesting ideas DMC, but consider this;

My dog proposely serenades by walking under my gong where there are lots of hanging wind chimes and bells, setting them off, then howling. It is...

Re: Phil Rudd AC/DC

You know I'm with you on some of that, RS is irrelevant and irreverent and they tick me off too. They bashed Zepplin when they first came out and AC/DC too, and their music reviewers are always...

Re: Phil Rudd AC/DC

Now that's funny ... what they do, leave you off the cover?

I've got a lifetime supply of toilet paper, my subscription is a life sentence.

In the article on AC/DC this month they say when...

Phil Rudd AC/DC

Want to say how much I appreciate Phil Rudd now that AC/DC is back on tour.

He is known as the man with the steady thump, but if you listen to songs like 'Back in Black' you know he does more than...

UK drummers defined Heavy??

The United States may have invented rock & roll, but the UK wrote the definition of 'Heavy Drums'.

Ginger Baker, Mitch Michell, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Bill Ward, Clive Bunker, Carl Palmer........

Re: Would John Bonham be here?

Exactly ...

Bonham was like no one heard before. He sounded like a dinosaur tromping across a field of bass and guitar. The drums were dominating, the fills ripped and pummeled across the...

Re: Jim Chapin: Advanced Techniques for the Modern Drummer

Good comments here from everyone on some fine points. I'm no expert in jazz, and do not know the Dawson book, but worked out of Chapin's and Reed's over 30 years ago in college.

I'd make the point...

Re: Who follows whom?

Hopefully not adjusting the meter so much as the nuance and feel. For instance, it sounds good adjusting to make the bass drum and bass line syncronized.







Yes, this is how it goes...

Re: Who follows whom?

No following ..... both should be on their own sure-footed course that somehow fits.

At the same time, they should 'be under the influence' of each other, in other words listening and making...

Re: Is solo drumming music?

No doubt solo drums as music creates mood and moves the listener. Where there once was silence, drums becomes a body of sound. It IS something and its name is music.

African music has a lot of...

Re: I WANT EVERYBODY'S OPINION ON THIS!!!

Yes it is all soooooooo subjective. Who can explain people's taste?

Maybe they'll get around to those guys, but it will take awhile. What do they do, select only one per year right?

I have more of a problem with lists like the one on Drummer World where they list...

Re: 2 simultaneious ostinatos?

Yes, know what you mean ... I always thought the name 'ostinatos' was a fancy pantie way of saying the same old thing. Four on the floor and 2 & 4 is an ostinato. When I first heard the word I...

Try working up solo ideas, compositions with a beginning, middle, improv, then back. Doesn't have to be complicated, but make it interesting and dancible. Comp on one idea till it leads to the next,...

Re: Rudiments: help!

For a strong double stroke that works on any surface, play each note separate and accent the second one. This is how I was taught by my drum instructor, which if you can afford it, would be a good...

Re: Listening to live recordings of yourself

Good for you that you have improved your time with this method. I will give it further effort, would say I'm at about 4 bpm range through a song without a metronome ... could use improvement.
