Re: Need help translating from guitarist to drummer

I'm also in an rock cover band of the same era, and apart from metronomic rhythm, my tips would be:
Make sure you look like you're enjoying yourself while playing. Chances are you may be...

Re: where can I buy quality sheet music?

Drumscore is largely ok but I have noticed at least a couple of errors in all the transcriptions I have purchased from there (of which I have seven). If you want you can check out the free ones...

Re: Could have been awkward ...

I say go for it. I'm sure your daughters will be absolutely mortified now but in a few years time they'll realise just how cool you actually are!

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Thank you for illustrating my point! Triplets have a well-defined meaning, and it is not "three notes that go together".

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Well it always comes back to the same argument. It doesn't matter what time signature it's in because it sounds the same anyway. You could technically notate it as 6/8, as 12/8, as 4/4 with triplets...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

I'd also like to point out something that indicates you might be confused about this yourself.



If the ride/snare was each quarter note then you'd have 3 in a bar of 6/8, or to put it another...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Technically they're only triplets if you're playing them in 4/4 time. Triplets of any sort in compound time would not work as you've described.

Anyway, from only hearing the description of the...

Re: Prog to isolate drum tracks from a mix?

Close, Guitar Hero was entirely covers, Guitar Hero II was largely covers with some original masters used, Guitar Hero III and Rock Band 1 were largely originals with some covers, and Rock Band 2/3...

Re: How do you guys learn songs ?

When I have some songs to learn I'll put them in a playlist and listen to them on repeat for a couple of commutes. Then, I'll sit down at the computer with headphones on and open up a new document (I...

Re: Freehand Technique by Johnny Rabb

I was taught the basics of this technique in my first lesson with my new teacher about three weeks ago, and struggled to grasp it at the time. I was interested in it though, and did my own research...

Re: Hit like a girl

While I'm not a woman myself, there are many reasons why some women like female-only competitions, and I'm not talking strictly about only drumming here. A major reason is that in co-ed competitions,...

Re: Wearing hearing protection issue

I always wear hearing protection. I can't be in the same room with just someone playing a snare drum without wincing from the hard hits, so my ER20s serve me very well indeed. If you get funny looks,...

Re: The definition of a "good drummer"

I think that with anything in this world, the different level of skill you have with something will inform your own criteria for determining whether or not someone else is also good at that thing.

Those of you with a taste for excellent British TV should recognise this compound duple (6/8 or 6/4) track: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUkSK6eoYro

Re: What is the difference of 3/4 and 6/8?

This is exactly right. In my early days of drumming I had a teacher who told me that Solsbury Hill is in 7/8. This greatly confused me because with my classical background I could clearly tell that...

Re: Rookie mistake - help please!

Do bear in mind that when south of the equator, you will need to turn the tension rods in the anti-clockwise direction to tighten them due to the Coriolis effect.

Re: Can an attractive female drummer be a mediocre cheese hostess?

Hmmm... I'd say no, but but a cheesy female chop hostess absolutely could (and should!) be a mediocre attractive drum groover.

Re: Ear Candy

I can't speak to any sort of supplements to help with your hearing, but I believe prevention is better than a cure. To that end I never hit an unmuted drum or cymbal without ear protection, and I...

Re: looking for a book

It's not even solely a problem with the size of the screen, some publishers are just incredibly lazy when it comes to the quality of their picture scans. It also doesn't help that the Kindle doesn't...
