Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

I have a fair amount of videos on youtube, but its mostly of me learning a new groove or trying out new stuff. Not any covers or anything like that. Mostly to show my friends who don't get a chance...

Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

What helped my breathing more than anything else was taking a yoga class in college. Since then, I've never had issues of holding my breath, or breathing hard and fast, or running out of air. I'm...

Re: Craigslist ads crack me up....

Well, if you're in Idaho, I can see how drum lessons would be cheap. Even Boise would be cheaper than Portland. Good solid lessons start at $40-50 for an hour here, and go up from there.

I don't...

Re: Craigslist ads crack me up....

Check this out from my craigslist today:



Not sure how rates are in your towns, but here in Portland, you'll be lucky if you can find a teacher who will teach half hour lessons for that rate,...

Re: Craigslist ads crack me up....

Or ads that look for drummers with "groove/feel" rather than drummers that can play with a lot of notes.

Obviously those two traits are mutually exclusive. :rolleyes:

Or, as I'm led to believe,...

Re: How to progress on Tommy Igoe's Lifetime Warmup?

Another thing to try is different stick sizes. I usually pad with Vic Firth MS2's. Fat marching sticks, really heavy. Just for kicks and giggles the other night I switched to my regular 5a's,...

Re: Who "invented" the rock beat?

It was definitely before Elvis, before rock even. From what I recall from those youtube videos, the 2 & 4 backbeat came in with Americana in the late 40s early 50s, kinda the proto-rock era (Fats...

Re: Paiste 2002, B8 but why do they sound so good?

No, you were correct. Led Zeppelin were really Time Lords.

Re: Who "invented" the rock beat?

There's this series on youtube that has the history of the drum set, and they talk about this a little bit. Can't recall the name of the series, but I think its presented by Vic Firth. Came out...

Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

I'm pretty non chalant about my blue Pearls. I gig with them often, and while I do keep an eye on thing, I'm never hovering around them. Hell, I leave my stands and hardware *in my car.* As in,...

Re: How to progress on Tommy Igoe's Lifetime Warmup?

I'll tell you about my experience with the Lifetime Warmup. Its a bit different from yours but maybe you can take something from it.

So I got it in 2011. I'd already been playing for over ten...

Re: Giving bandmates rides to gigs!

I used to be the band chaffeur whichever band I was in. When I was 19 I was in a band with people younger than me (still in high school) who didn't drive, so yeah, that was fun.....not.

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

That's not a liberal/conservative debate. That's a science vs. not-science debate. Global Warming has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with science :)

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

I've never outright quit a band before, they just fizzled out. Never been fired, just gone to an audition and never got a callback, heh.

I have fired others, though.

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Yes, but overt racism and sexism isn't the issue anymore (on a wide scale). Its subtle racism and sexism.

In your analysis, you'd be correct. That's not what this thread is about though.

Re: Question about Groove Essentials 2.0 DVD vs. Book

Haha dammit man! I ended up using that deal! Got both digital copies for $18. I don't even have to worry about the posters then, haha!

I'll put the books on my christmas list then!

Re: What's the Hardest Position to Fill in a Band?

It depends on the town.

Key players are damn hard, or at least key players that can solo and improv like a guitar player typically can.

Good singers are easy to find but it depends on the...

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

Think its a matter of heel up or heel down sort of thing. I let it ring the rare moments I play heel down because its easier. I 90% of the time I play heel up where its much easier to bury the...

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

This is an interesting topic for sure.

I come from a rudimental/maching background, so if I see a note with slashes through it, I think open. If I see a z, its buzz.

In high school jazz band,...

Re: Question about Groove Essentials 2.0 DVD vs. Book

Oh really? That's cool to know.

I guess I didn't really communicate it well in my original post. The thing is, the poster by itself is great and really all I need, I can't justify the $35 to get...
