Re: Musical Instrument Museum - Drums of the World

Re: A Round Table of Greats

I seem to recall reading an interview with Max Roach where he said that the disappearance of the bass drum in jazz had less to do with stylistic choices, and more to do with changes in recording...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

Really? At the very least, he was quite a capable singer, especially in 70s era Genesis. His backing vocals were an integral part to their sound with Peter Gabriel, and as the lead vocalist he was...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

Well, stuff like this won't help with the "now you see him, now you don't" disappearing act

Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

Agree. The Disney solo is particularly noteworthy. His level of attack and intensity is off the charts. He's got the audience in a powerful vise between his toms and snare.

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

Colin Bailey has a great technique where the foot rests in the same heel down position regardless whether one is playing heel up or heel down. The difference rests in slightly raising the heel when...

Re: Retarded left foot - suggestions?

Definitely go slow. I'd focus on counting your 4s out loud and spang-a-langing with the ride and bass drum.

Once comfortable, start to emphasize the "2" and "4 in your counts to encourage the...

Re: Question about early beginner progression.

Have you considered drum lesssons? That would be the ideal starting point to getting a clear direction of how to progress; tough to do that all by yourself as a beginner.

Re: Question about early beginner progression.

Agree that you need to be having fun. That is table stakes, especially for a hobbysit where drums is not their lifeblood and source of their income.

Stick control is so pervasive but yet so...

Re: Rack Tom as floor Tom

It may be just the angle, but it looks like your crash cymbal is way out into the bleachers. You must have Mister Fantastic-like arms!

Re: Mike Mangini

Did he say people of all other cultures or certain cultures don't understand odd-times? You seem to imply the latter which is not necessarily inconsistent with having a world view.

Re: Great hip hop drummers?

Not sure if he qualifies as a drummer (he may be thought of as a drum programmer), but J Dilla put out some truly amazing stuff during his unfortunately short life.

Re: Nick Menza

That could be true, but how has he supported himself since then? Is he getting significant royalties from the old albums; was he credited as a songwriter even?

At some point, financial necessity...

Re: Nick Menza

I'm a huge Menza fan too but let's be honest, his career started and ended with Megadeth and essentially defines his career as a working professional. What else can he be doing or talking about that...

No updates to this thread in quite some time. Interesting.

what about guys like Ringo, Travis Barker, and Gene Krupa; plenty of popularity, longevity, and originality on display.

Re: Neil Peart

Agreed that Peart is an amazing and hugely influential rock drummer, and a phenomenal drummer for Rush. I'm a huge Rush fan and have seen them in concert many times.

Re: Importance of a good drum throne?

hmm. To play's devil advocate, in my experience, having a cheap, no-frills throne actually forces you to play with good balance and posture. Plush seats with ergodynamic countours are much more...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

Brilliant musician. His stuff with 70s Genesis ranks among the best prog rock ever created.
