Re: Clapton - Blues before sunrise ?

thankx larryace for clearing that up for me.

I was doing playing both (but not on the hats), and was curious if the shuffle would sound too chopey? I guess I have the liberty to mix it up.

Clapton - Blues before sunrise ?

Always have a problem hearing the cymbal pattern.

Is the ride played as a basic shuffle beat (ie., partial triplets - middle eight note left out) OR 12/8 blues triplet beat?

Re: offset kit configuration opinions?

Good point Hollywood . I'll try that.

Also 4 piece setup isn't bad either. Really how much use is a 10" tom versus the 12". I could also go with 2 floor toms. So I up 2 down.

I switched my kit with the 10 and 12 toms offset. I really like the setup, mostly because I can get my ride closer.

the main problem I'm having is getting the hats in place. I really have to...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Any ideas what 12" tom would be a good addition? I'm sure whatever color it is, it can be wrapped very close to the kit.

Also, do you think adding a tom other than beech sound to different?

Re: Musicality and time lesson
