Re: Endings

LOL - I just saw his clinic for kids @ the Portland Blues Festival - loved it! I wouldn't be jumping over the drums(scared me just watching it), but I see why he got the gig with Little Richard :o :D

Re: Asian-Style Drumming, Japanese Taiko, Chinese, etc.

I haen't heard anything from Taiko that couldn't be notated - at least, nothing more difficult to notate than Jazz.



None in Taiko, but I see stuff like that on other drums - especially hand...

Re: Asian-Style Drumming, Japanese Taiko, Chinese, etc.

Yeah - I've seen that too - just repeating whats been told to me by career Taiko drummers. I didn't ask for a clarification :( I gathered the idea was to always give your very most, every time ... ...

Re: Asian-Style Drumming, Japanese Taiko, Chinese, etc.

In Taiko, you are bound to hit the drums as hard as physically possible, every time. It is a matter of respect to the art form and to the gods. Anything less than your best is offensive.

As far...

Re: Endings

Most of my shows are sub gigs - often when I don't know the material, or even everyone I'm playing with. Telegraphing the end the song is something I've become quite good at. A giant ritard leading...

Re: Losing an eye to a hi hat rod, injury and prevention

Was playing a party and the bass player passed out during the song and fell directly on my hi hat. Didn't lose an eye but did get impaled, and bent the heck out of the stand. For some reason, I felt...

Re: Having trouble with right stick hand...suggestions please?

You are describing the symptoms of a repetitive motion injury. This is one of the major reasons I wrote Anatomy of Drumming (http://amzn.to/1IpX3jh), and there is a chapter in it specifically about...

Re: Organizing and Handling Sheet Music

Another vote for electronic tablet. It is a pain in the rear to scan everything in, but when it is... not only is your bag a lot lighter, you have a backup in case something terrible happens.

Re: would you buy a ludwig accent drum set...

They are only OK. You will be disappointed with the build, but they tune. I'm much happier with the the BreakBeats.

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

TO me t looks like Chris Dave is extending his elbow while lifting the wrist, then bending the elbow while dropping the wrist for the stroke. Rinse and repeat. Much like what Joe Morello explains....

Re: Getting lazy and playing heel down

I'd be willing to bet you slouch forward when you play.

If you lean forward, then then weight of your body leans forward over your legs, then your legs are required to push up off the floor to...

Re: Preparing for Cruise Ships. Some advice?

Re: Bernard Purdie Tells His Story!

My theory:

When I was studying with him, one thing he said to me in particular really blew my mind. He said the way I was sitting kept me from being a more positive person.

Specifically, he...

Re: Less Playing = More Kudos

Interesting - I've always thought #1 and #2 were the same number - the thinking that the Purdie Shuffle *is* traditional time keeping, only the meter is more complex than, say, a Johnny Cash tune....

Re: Smaller Drums In Front Of The Kick Drum???

The drum has a speaker inside.

Microphones use a piece of paper that acts like a sail on a boat that gets moved by sound (vibrating air). The "sail" is glued to a magnet that pushes around...

Re: The state of pop music

Re: The state of pop music

Re: Drum spacing issues.

There is no rule that you can't sit higher - in fat, ergonomics docs suggest sitting so that your thigh and calf make a 135 degree angle - yes, that high. The reason is that the connective tissue...
