Re: Some thoughts on keeping time

Nothing makes me more frustrated than to see a drummer that can play some licks, chops, fast stuff /etc. with authority and authenticity, personality.....but their time sucks. It's as though they...

Re: How long does it take you to find the groove?

The first note, if I'm warmed up and prepared for the tempo and feel. Otherwise, it could be ugly. :D

Re: 10 prescriptions for productive practice

Usually I have the most enjoyment at the beginning, improvising something on the kit. That's how I begin, anyway.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I really believe his drumming and sound hasn't changed much in the 20-odd years he has been with the Chili Peppers.

I prefer the Jack Irons days of RHCP.

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

It sounded more like posing a hypothetical question to me, but whatever. ;) Back to watching Meg White videos for me!

Re: Advice on what songs to play/learn

How about Iron Maiden and Nicko McBrain? When I was first learning as a kid, I definitely learned a lot from playing Maiden tunes. Most of the drum parts are pretty straight-forward but require more...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

I think that is on-topic in this case, given that we know most of the hype is through third-party compensation.

Re: My bizarre, ego-destroying experience

I know a guy who told me his music sad story, about how he was a trombone player at Berklee and was rehearsing one day... A few hot shot horn players knocked on his door, he answered and they...

Re: Carlock in, Phillips out

I bet Steve Jordon could serve the Toto gig well.

Re: Moeller technique for 2&4 rock/funk grooves

I much prefer the "mash" for most simple backbeats with rimshots on snare, rather than moeller whip. Very different sound and feel. It takes very little effort and energy, but requires some...

Re: Absolutely ------- priceless!!

What's so funny about the snare picture? It became unscrewed and it collapsed. I have a few stands that do that. :/

Re: Demotivated. How do you freshen up?

Hey Dre, here's how I see it: we are all self-taught. No teacher can physically enter your mind and teach you something.

When we learn to add 1+1 = 2, didn't we teach ourselves in the end, even...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Again, for those who are new to this or maybe uninitiated: these kids (and adults) are buying their fan-base through bot networks.
Also, companies (drum companies, music, etc) use these same...

Re: wrong fills in the wrong groove.

Practice with a click, for sure.
One thing that works out the behind/ahead aspect, especially coming out of fills, is just working on the dexterity of your limbs. Further develop your touch and...

Re: Demotivated. How do you freshen up?

Years ago I had that "motivation gap", when everything felt stale and I wasn't going anywhere. The key was taking lessons again (I think it was 2006-2010, on and off).

I started learning a lot...

Wow that is a beautiful drum. Unfortunately, it won't end up in this home anytime soon.

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Most of the credibility earned from you-tube internet drummers was gone years ago in my eyes; given that views, associated attention/ hysteria can be so easily exploited by amateurs with lots of time...

Re: Your favourite drum fills of all time, EVER!

"Flight of the Rat" Deep Purple Ian Paice- has a fill towards the end of the song (prior to the funky section) that, as a kid, inspired me to figure out what the hell he was doing!

Re: Less isn't always more?

I would rather hear something original (Elvin? for example) who didn't "play like the pros". But point taken if one is talking about straightforward rock, pop, etc.

Re: Less isn't always more?

All due respect, this is conformist and repressed to a degree. Now surely, to get off the ground, it's best to copy other drummers and musicians who have done it. But in the end I'd rather play the...
