Re: Equaling hands that are already equal?

Playing alternating strokes requires more brain processing and signals to limbs than playing one hand at a time. It shouldn't be surprising that when you put your hands together you may have to back...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Exactly. Good post, Matthias.

Beyond the possibility of medical conditions, I'm going to ask the OP the same question as Phil Rudd: how do you KNOW you're getting worse? Do you record yourself?...

Re: Sensitive drummer?

Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

Yup. And the quality of your later life, too. Protect your back. You're gonna need it. I even recommend that you do some sort of exercise for your core and back strength outside of drumming to...

Re: Exercises to internalize, 16th note triplets and 32nd notes?

Play quarter notes using single strokes along with a metronome @ 40 BPM and subdivide into 16th-note triplets or 32nd notes internally and/or with your voice. Alternately, play 1/8ths with your hands...

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

No.

They'll be back once the fad for fusion sizes finally wanes.

I could've saved some bandwidth had I just read this first.

Re: Unable to use fills I've been practicing for hours in my band

Are the fills ideas you've designed for specific places in the specific songs you're playing, or have you simply practiced some fills with the hope that they'll come flying out in the heat of battle...

Re: Dave Dicenso's - Universal Rhythms book - Help needed

First time through I just did the exercises as prescribed but at some point I probably moved them around. IMO, the singing and clapping IS the material. The rest is a nice physical challenge but...

Re: Tommy Igoe - State of education

Re: Drum lesson with famous drummer....

To the question in the opening post, from the "dead" pile, I'd take Papa Jo Jones, Earl Palmer or Mel Lewis.

From the land of the living, it'd be Matt Chamberlain, Shawn Pelton, Paul Leim or...

Re: Drum lesson with famous drummer....

Yes, he's a sweetheart. Many moons ago he dropped into a drum shop I worked in while touring with Tony Bennett. He saw me diddling away on a pad with sticks and came over and asked if I'd applied any...

Re: heel up vs heel down vs flat footed

Re: heel up vs heel down vs flat footed

I was responding more to Arky's suggestion not to think about it too much. I believe we should do a little thinking about how and why we play certain ways. There are advantages to heel up playing and...
