Re: The level system?

I didn't realize that this was a "system". I've always called it "drumming". I certainly can't see how playing this way could be considered lazy. It's just efficiency of motion.

I make my...

Re: Jazz comping speed - wrist/finger

Check out page 9 or the Riley book and just work through those for awhile at a nice slow tempo. Take your time and gradually speed up. I don't know you, but I feel like maybe you're just trying to...

Re: Tips for Moving To Traditional Grip

A forum isn't really the best place to try to explain something like a grip. Your best bet is to get yourself a good instructor. Failing that (or in addition to it), I highly recommend Jojo Mayer's...

Re: Recording with K Cons

Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. All the stressing was about nothing. Once I got in the studio, it sounded awesome, with no tape. All I did was tone down my technique a little bit and stayed...

Recording with K Cons

So I'm heading into the studio for the first time since I got my 22" medium thin low. I've been recording it on a little Zoom digital recorder just to get an idea of what things might sound like,...

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

I'm going to have to agree with everyone else here and say that an hour is more than excessive. I see your logic, and a little headroom is always good to have, but working your way up to an hour is...

Re: Basic Paradiddle Combinations

Both. I usually play them straight for a while first, then spend some time shifting the accents around. All the downbeats, all the Es, &s, and As, first two, middle two, last two, etc., etc.

Basic Paradiddle Combinations

Happy new year, everyone.

Here's a little exercise I like to do to get my hands moving again after not touching sticks for the last two weeks during the holidays. Enjoy.

Re: Are you a drum person or a cymbal person

Cymbals. It's a problem. There's just always more to be had.




These are amazing! Why have I never heard of this guy? His website says everything is sold out. How do we get our hands on...

Re: Question for cruise ship drummers about practice on board

I worked for 4 different cruise lines over the years, always booked as a band.

In my experience, unfortunately, there was never anywhere to practice on the kit. Even when the lounges were closed...

Re: Recording advice/tips.

That's all great advice from Kamak.

I don't think you can go wrong with either one of those snares. It's hard to say without hearing it.

As far as changing the heads go, if you're happy with...

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

The key to playing faster is playing slower…MUCH slower. It's all about getting the mechanics under your hands so that they're completely second nature, like using a fork, or brushing your teeth. ...

Re: Samba

Brazilian music doesn't really have the whole 3-2 / 2-3 clave thing if that's what you're referring to. Todd's page of rhythms is a good place to start.

The ride cymbal pattern you have written...

Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

I think D is your best option.

I know it's splitting hairs, but for some reason "rent" rubs me the wrong way. Rather than charging your band mates rent, I would just agree that you'll be taking a...

Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

First, if you're not doing it yet/anymore, you should take some lessons yourself no matter how good you are. Get ideas from the person or people that are teaching you. It sounds like you just...

Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

A little time off can be really good, especially for the brain. Three months is way too long for my taste, but whatever works for you is cool.

Personally, I find that I atrophy pretty quickly. ...
