Re: Dave Letterman's Drum Solo Week

Someone above said that "Drummers like groovey solos. People like fireworks."


I'm not sure. If you watch the Shiela E. solo again, notice when the crowd starts clapping: it's several minutes in,...

Re: Dave Letterman's Drum Solo Week

Funny. I can relate! Wish I had something like that to watch now, too. It's true that we really don't often realize what we've got until it's gone, do we?

I remember staying up late in the...

Re: Best jazz albums(with great jazz drumming)?

I like Wayne Shorter's "The Soothsayer", featuring a young Tony Williams, and possibly the best ride cymbal sound ever recorded. (IMO, it sounds even better than on the Miles recordings.) And there...

Re: Who is your favorite drummer(s)

To me, Gadd is the guy who just has it all.

After that, I'd have to list Purdie, Katche, Bonham, Elvin, Copeland, Porcaro, Keltner, Tony, Vinnie, Chamberlain, Hayward, Londin, Drayton, Jordan,...

Re: Can 'feel' be learned?

I think "feel" can be learned to the same extent that "emotion" can be learned. Thinking and practicing is a part of it all, surely, and that may help create that conduit to the good feeling groove,...

Re: Is it true that drummers, and people who listen and play music in general, have add?

I'd take it for the ignorance that it probably is. ;-) There are many people who just do not know, beyond their own assumptions, and they can probably be forgiven, given the laughable state of mental...

Re: So is ANYONE capable of drumming?

I think this is a much more complex topic than people are assuming.

My answer is... no way, most people do not have the qualities needed to achieve a Weckl-like level.

It is about so much more...

Re: If you could only have a 4-piece cymbal setup, what would it be?

Hmm... tough.

2) Zildjian 20" K Custom Dark Ride
3) Istanbul 21" Agop Mel Lewis Ride
4) Sabian 16" HHX Studio Crash

Wow, interesting thread.

People who question the legitimacy of some of these brain/mental health diagnoses have probably never met someone with one of those conditions. Good for them. But the...

Re: Are you sick of the term "POCKET DRUMMER"?

Absolutely, I would argue that Bozzio's 'U.S. Drag' is "in the pocket". I remember taking that song to my drum teacher in about 1986, and he was just floored by it.

There are lots of opinions...

Re: Are you sick of the term "POCKET DRUMMER"?

There is a definitional / communication issue here, as well, as someone has wisely pointed out already, yet I don't see people addressing his very good points. Maybe the following question will...

Re: Are you sick of the term "POCKET DRUMMER"?

Interesting. I think it's an opportunity for us to ask ourselves, "why do other musicians feel the need to emphasize that they're looking for a 'pocket' drummer?"

One reason might be that enough...

Re: how to get the groove to come out

Yeah, I think it's great that you're even focussed on finding the groove. I like what people have said so far. And a big part of the answer may just be... it'll come in time.

A few quick points:...

Re: Heel up or heel down?

Both heel up and heel down here too, but I've found lately that it's been more down. It also depends on what I'm doing with my hi-hat foot. If I really need the power, sure, the heel naturally comes...

Re: Why did you start drumming?

From what my family tells me, I was tapping things in rhythm to songs on the radio from a pretty early age. So, in a sense, I guess it was just "there"? It just always appealed to me.

(I've not...

Re: If you could Have Lessons Fron Any Professional Drummer Who Would It Be?

You make a really good point! The best players may not be the best teachers. So true.

On the other hand, clearly, the guys I've listed have something special that few others do. Matt Chamberlain...

Hi. I always keep my mouth shut on this issue, but I think I'll chime in this time. In my opinion, as an aspiring drummer, you should try to get the parts as close to the original as possible. You...

Gadd, Katche, Purdie, Chamberlain, or Porcaro... and either would get the same set of questions. (Things pertaining to timekeeping, groove, breathing, etc...)

Re: Bonham - "Rock and Roll" ending, what's correct?

Yeah, his video is very good! Actually, his and another guy's ("boneman" or something like that) are what originally made me want to really investigate that ending. The thing is... I don't think...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

Ghost Story is actually played by Manu, and to me is the best drumming on the disc.
