Re: First Gig Blues

Hey Mary, relax!

You said the girls have played a gig there before? Great. And they got invited back. So either they do really pep up come performance time, or the owner's/manager's expectations...

Hi Mighty Joker, not sure if my issue is the same as yours but ..

Re: How to develop touch and tone on the drumset?

Haha it reminds me of when I started buying decent gear for the first time. I bought some Paiste Signature hi-hats, based on samples only, not paying any attention to brand and prices.

I got the...

Re: Slide technique questions

Yep I agree with what Andy said. As you build your speed up, you will automatically start to adjust to the leg / ankle movement imo. Leg leg just won't be able to cope with the workload. Although I...

Re: Slide technique questions

I was using heel-toe for my doubles for a long time. I was never happy with the consistency. I finally found a teacher who used single pedal, played heel-up and slide technique.

He didn't tell me...

Re: Beginner help with a song from The Roots

So what you are trying to do is hit a syncopated kick. The right hand is the downbeat - to syncopate the kick you have to hit the bass drum at the exact halfway point between your hi hat hits.

Re: Putting myself out there ( uncle Larry, this ones for you)

Haha Mary, your post has left me laughing and smiling in a crowded food court over in Sydney.

Re: What would you do if a band member accused you of stealing his stuff?

Buy the identical mic's, rough them up a bit so they look like the old ones. Then bring them to band practice and say they were a gift from your grandma !

Hilarity ensues. Or punching. Could go...

Re: I don't study anyone

Great thread, with some great points.

Re: Fave songs with half time shuffles

Sorry Zicko's, no triplet feel in that song to me. It cuts to half time but keeps the straight 8ths / 16ths subdivisions.

My fave half time shuffle song, Santeria - Sublime.

Re: Getting into drumming

Hey mate, glad to hear you are enjoying it.

Rome wasn't built in a day, if great drumming came easy to everyone we wouldn't all love it so much. Just relax and be patient.

As for developing...

Re: Are you serious?

Ahh the paradox that is Meg White.

Yes I agree with you Pollyanna, it is not uncommon in pop music to have an artist focus on looks and profitability rather than musicianship. And I resent that...

Re: Getting into drumming

No need to wait for the weekly visits with your cousin to get your hands moving. Buy a practice pad and set of pitch-paired sticks. You'll be able to hone your hands in your spare time, without...

Re: Are you serious?

Yeah I considered that, but let's just say one of the girls in the band is a capable drummer. There is no way that she would be happy playing with a completely new drummer and no way they would be...

Re: Bo's carpal tunnel update

Bo, thanks for taking the time to respond (twice)! I went to the doctor and they said I should seek out a hand specialist. My symptoms are different from CTS. I tried relaxing my hands as much as...

Re: Basics of drumming styles

Yeh listening is something you will develop in time. It helps a little extra to count along to it, to fully understand where the drummer is placing his hits.

If you are into your hip-hop, just...

Re: Basics of drumming styles

I can't believe no one has said this yet ... LISTEN to different styles. Find out the early pioneers of different styles, buy their music and listen to what the drummer does. Then start listening to...

Re: Opinions wanted on this topic

Haha Larry I hear ya, $10 sounds like a pretty cheap lesson in humility!

I love the fact that he doesn't like hi-hats :) who needs 'em? Keith Moon didn't.

Re: "Rosana shuffle" how long did it take?

Like it has been said, this is a groove with a lot of tiny complexities that you can spend years on. I can play it mechanically, but I am still not happy exactly with the feel.

Re: Opinions wanted on this topic

If they ask for your advice again in the future continue to give it, and let them learn the rest I think. As the only musician in my family, I think it is a great bonus that they have you there for a...

Re: Bo's carpal tunnel update

Hi Bo, Matt here. How much thought have you given to re-working your technique? Do you attribute any of the injury to technical deficiencies?

The reason I ask, is that I am starting to suffer...

Re: Rhythm and Meter Patterns Help ...!!!

My advice would be to set the metronome to quarter notes at ALL times. Remove the reliance on the metronome as much as possible and learn to subdivide the quarter consistently on your own.
