Re: Problem with Stroke's Aim

I taught a guy recently who had this same issue, stuck him on some technique exercises of single stroke rolls, double stroke rolls and paradiddles and voila! His issue was sorted. I too had this...

Re: Flying Fingers Help

I think JohnW hit it right on the head! If you want to develop that technique properly then sure you can do it on your own and you might get it right but more importantly you might get it wrong. If...

Re: So who here thinks they are a good drummer?

I'm alright.

I'm not bad, but I still have much to learn and master! I'd consider myself good, but not outstanding or masterful etc.

I've still got a lot ahead of me, so I figure if I look...

Re: Restoring with a material wrap-finish

It might not be the overruling opinion, but I like it. I mean, I really like it!

Did you cut the fabric to fit the hardware, or just drill a hole for the hardware bolts and screw it on top of the...

Re: Hitting the 'Buy Now' Button - Gretsch Renown - Help

Gretsch Renowns are killer drums, so I say pull the trigger on them for sure if it's what you've been after for months!

Paiste signature darks are also killer cymbals, but cymbals are far more of...

Re: Honey Don't by the Beatles

As Gruntersdad said, it sounds like a straight 4/4 beat to me, the bass is shuffling, but to my ears the drums aren't. Although I guess they could be played with a shuffle if you wanted :)

Why not break the large kit down, into 2 smaller kits that you can sell individually? Thats probably what I would do, although I may take some flak for that statement :P
