Re: Maison Guidry (an unbelievable, amazing talent)

What this guy has is so much more than fills and chops. Anybody can sit around and practice fills and chops over and over until you can execute without thinking about it, but true musicians like...

Re: Maison Guidry (an unbelievable, amazing talent)

Probably watched about 3 but was really impressed by the first. Guy has really great feel to his playing. Micro-timing on point.

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

LOL dude. The mental gymnastics required to say that I'm the one harping on age are beyond hilarious. My entire point the entire time is that it has nothing to do with age and he's not some child...

Re: Maison Guidry (an unbelievable, amazing talent)

This guy has a really cool groove. Sits perfectly in the music, interesting but not detracting. I'll probably look for more of his work, not that I have to since you collect it all here... Just for...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

What? That I'm going in circles with you?
As long as I see posts I'd like to respond to.
The simple fact you don't like my sentiments does not at all constitute trolling. Trust me, if I was...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

Okay, we'll just pretend there's something. I just went back through the post and can't find what you're talking about. You did post another solo with an edit I think, and even called it...

Re: Technique for hitting only the top of hi hats fast?

Push/Pull is a go to on the hats for me as well, but I have a harder time making the notes un-accented with this method than when I use just finger control. At certain speeds or on longer runs, push...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

Might just be a language thing, but I wasn't actually calling the drumming stupid, just the fact that I was being asked apparently to find examples of each one since nobody would be tell me what I'm...

Re: Not sure how to do this

You're not wrong.

Not long ago I did a mix and sent it to the guitar player for opinion. He wrote back that he couldn't hear the bass. That seemed weird to me because I could hear it fine on my...

Re: Not sure how to do this

That's what I was getting at in my post above. If you mix for that crappy set of computer speakers, and get it sounding good there, you'll have a better result than if you mix for only your...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

Again, what does "play like this guy" mean? Do I have to find examples of only 26 year olds doing every stupid lick this guy did before you'll find it to be a meaningful comparison? Neither you nor...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

Sorry, you're right. Shariq is a true prodigy, there's nobody in his "age range" that's even close to his staggering ability to hit drums better than anyone else alive at any age and he's already...

Re: Not sure how to do this

You want to find the most "flat" monitor speakers you can, you don't want them to sound good, you want them to be as close to 1:1 as you can. No sound enhancement what-so-ever.

Another great...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

You're the one getting uppity about age being a factor, when it's just not, as I proved by showing you some great drummers in the genre that aren't even as old as the length of time Shariq has been...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

Totally agree, buddy.

I totally honestly didn't see anything all that impressive in the videos when I compare against other drummers in that genre, which is why I was asking what was so inspiring...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

I know, right? Actual musical examples of actual young drummers must be quite a shock to the system. I enjoyed watching all these 100 times more than those dry solo videos.

And none of them are...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

What the hell does "same level" mean? Names and ages mean literally nothing. When someone stands out, they stand out. Age can get a kid noticed, but only has so many uses with the passage of time....

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

I just looked up his bio. In addition to the word "gospel" being mentioned, it also says he's been working on this; playing the drums since the age of 3. That's not a prodigy that's a ton of work...

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

I did also say "very good drummer" if that makes you feel any better. He's great, in fact, but I can't go to any type of prodigy label.

What makes him stand out from the other busy gospel players...

Re: Fixing Tempo Problems

If you're not a fan of people arguing their points, in the future I recommend not offering childish taunts like "horse puckey" in reference to a point they've made.

Re: Shariq Tucker (a young prodigy from the Bronx)

A better term would be "pretty good drummer".
Typically when people use the term "prodigy" they're referencing someone very young with capabilities that far exceed the abilities/understandings of...

Re: Fixing Tempo Problems

Incorrect by your own logic. If you don't need it and could simply turn it off and still play great, then you prove my point. The entire point of most musicians utilizing click tracks is...

Re: Fixing Tempo Problems

Right but we've just determined that it's quite possible you just don't need it at all for this live setting... So that's like picking up either screwdriver when you've got nothing that requires...
