Re: London Drum Show MainStage tickets on sale now - Heads up!!

Yeah he's an alien, saw him a couple of times earlier this year with different bands and I really love his playing - I'll send you a short transcription in case you decide to give it a bash some time...

Re: London Drum Show MainStage tickets on sale now - Heads up!!

Hmm I can't remember for sure, but I think what happened is the people who'd gone earlier in the day had got tickets to see the main stage, and when I turned up later not knowing about it they were...

Re: London Drum Show MainStage tickets on sale now - Heads up!!

I'd decided not to go as last time (I think it was around 3 years ago I went) didn't know about the whole extra-tickets-needed thing and missed the drummers I wanted to catch. But actually if it's...

Re: Philly Joe Phriday

I've heard about this - looks amazing, wonder if I can get one somehow in the UK. Is it all transcriptions by the same person? I've heard Ralph Peterson gets his Berklee students to do a few Philly...

Re: Billy Cobham

Unfortunately not even close, but I tried to learn the head by ear and I did write out that cool triplet fill during the head if that's of any interest. It's kind of hard to hear but I think it's...

Re: Alan Dawson further advice?

I mentioned this thread to John when we covered this part of the book in a lesson and he said well now you can reply - sorry that was a couple of months ago and I forgot! As others have said the...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Hi Natdrums, hope the project is going well.



I had the surreal pleasure of getting to take some classes with Herbie Hancock as a special guest a couple of months ago. One of the things I...

Re: Learning music vs practicing exercises

Yeah the stuff that I've been missing practicing is probably not as directly applicable as learning tunes, but still important and I miss having a routine sometimes.

WhoIsTony I saw your reply...

Learning music vs practicing exercises

Everyone would probably agree that both are important... But when things get busy and you have a lot of music to learn, I'm curious as to how people split up their practice time between learning...

Re: My bizarre, ego-destroying experience

Give yourself credit where it's due - it's just as important to work on being a good person as a good musician, and you took his advice without being uptight about it. I've watched some pros handle...

Re: Hit like a girl

I admittedly don't know anything about the competition, but I don't mind the idea of a competition for females if it encourages more females to play and publicises that there are already a lot of...

Re: Shuffles

Hey, I'm hoping to resurrect this thread :)

Re: Has anyone conquered Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual?

Re: Transcribing - love it or hate it?

Not in such words, but the idea is to choose a piece of music that really speaks out to you in the first place - something where you feel "I wish I could play like that", and then just really go into...

Transcribing - love it or hate it?

Hi all, just wondering what you think of the practice of transcribing other musicians. I've heard some people say that they don't like it as they'd rather develop their own style, and others who...

Re: Alan Dawson further advice?
