Re: How does Gavin do this?

I'll just, very respectfully, disagree a little bit. Well, I don't know if "disagree" is even the right word. I suppose we're splitting hairs over what is "necessary" and what would be preferred by...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

No surprise there. In the end, even top notch musos want to be able to go into work and not think too hard. I bet the band didn't think "this isn't legit like the old days", they probably thought...

Re: Band Pay Splits

I try not to worry about it too much as long as I think the money I'm getting is fair for the gig. I get that bandleaders, bookers, etc. are going to take a little cut now and again and as long as it...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Yeah, but you also see and hear great -- and lesser -- players giving clear signals about where the time is coming out of a drum solo, for instance. You'll hear them play a figure that sets up the...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

I wish I knew how to rid myself of social anxiety 100%. I've just gotten better at managing it by performing as much as possible, preparing a tonne and allowing myself to take some chances when...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Have you tried practicing just playing the rhythm of the melody on one surface?

Re: A lesson from a master: Steve Gadd

Well, what wowed other folks may have been something entirely different.

A lesson from a master: Steve Gadd

I joined a large audience in Northampton, UK for a show called The World's Greatest Drummer on Tuesday evening. It featured host Ian Palmer and guests Pete Cater, Steve White and the inimitable Dr....

Re: How does Gavin do this?

BTW, Larry, have you tried singing the melody/bass line/whatever to The Chicken while he solos? Don't forget the 4 bars of interlude before the melody/horn line kicks in. Sing that quietly in your...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

You probably already are doing it whether you know it or not. Syncopation is usually the superimposition of a three note group over a duple meter or vice versa.

So if you've ever played The Bo...

Re: please comment on my technique

The second note of your doubles isn't as strong as the first. This is because - from what I can see - you're relying on the rebound of the pad rather than on controlling the second note with your...

Ah yes, the ol' ineluctable tension between theory and reality.

Re: Is it possible to do this?

Yes, this is possible. It's going to require figuring out the best sticking to use to get those tom notes played with the least amount of movement back and forth from the HH. Presuming you play your...

Re: Playing Live With a Metronome

Backing tracks and clicks are common even with function/wedding acts here in the UK.

Re: Is it possible to do this?

It may be *possible* (in a strictly theoretical sense) but I don't think I've ever seen anyone play constant 16ths on the HH with one foot at that kind of tempo for any extended period of time. Would...

Re: Is it possible to do this?

You suppose a month will have you playing 16ths at 120 (to the quarter note, i.e. 4 notes per click) on the HH with your foot?

Go for it. Let me know how that turns out.

Re: Is it possible to do this?

Sure. Playing the 16ths on the HH with one hand and the tom rolls with the other would be my first thought. T'aint going to be easy.

Re: Is it possible to do this?

You find 16th notes at 120 with your left foot on the HH *easy*?

You're a better man than I.

Re: What kit do you use?

Teenage boys are dumb, stinky and aggressive. But mostly dumb.

Re: Playing Live With a Metronome

Real drivers don't use maps or roadsigns. They just know where they're going.

Re: What kit do you use?

For a clean, contemporary pop sound: Yamaha Oak Custom 10/12/14/22

For everything else: Gretsch Round Badge 13/16/20

A selection of snares but my main choices are:

Re: Best Drum Teachers In England?

I don't think so, but it doesn't really matter.

Happy hunting.
