Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Gavin,

Im looking forward to attending your clinic at PASIC this year.

Will you be doing any autographs in the exhibit hall for Zildjian/Sonor/Vic Firth/ S-hoops, etc?

Re: building speed

Youre right Matt, its not about me.

Re: building speed

Wow, thats quite a post, Jeff.

Last things first - Tom hasnt said anything to me, nor me to him, so I dont know where youre coming from on that.

Re: building speed

You wouldnt throw out the pillow thing, but I would.
I would disregard the pillow thing altogether.

Playing on pillows develops habits and motions that are counter-productive of playing drums...

Re: building speed

I wonder, when you dribble a basketball, do you also lift it up after throwing it down?

You dont need to "strengthen" your muscles to move a stick.
The weight of a drumstick is very small,...

Re: building speed

Pillows?
For speed?

Are you serious, blade123?


Thats the most ridiculous thing Ive ever heard.

Unless, of course, youre trying to become a good pillower instead of drummer.

Re: If you ever have been asked to play WIPEOUT in a club

Good grief, ya'll are killing me on this topic.

Simply - in the "original" Surfaris version, the pattern is a two-bar phrase, played as sixteenth notes. (time sig. is 4/4)

The accent pattern is...

Re: If you ever have been asked to play WIPEOUT in a club

I made an extra 50 bucks on a gig once just for playing Wipeout.

We were almost at the end of the gig, past 1am, so the only people left are the bar-flys.

Dude at the bar sends a note to the...

Gavin,

I too was at the Houston show and I double the comments Johnny said.

Porcupine Tree, and your performances with them, are a huge inspiration to me.

I also picked up a copy of "Drop"...

I wouldve told him to just buy John Rileys book, but I guess plagiarism works just as well.

Re: Rudiments!! which are the most important?!

I think that once youve played more than 2 notes per hand, all youre doing is repeating singles, really.

Whether that be 3 or 300 strokes, its really just singles w/one hand.



Oh and to...

Re: Rudiments!! which are the most important?!

Theres only 3 rudiments anyway - singles, doubles & buzzes.

Everything else is a variation/combination of those strokes.

Why not just play the hi-hat with your left hand?

Im not understanding what you mean.

When I use a computer keyboard my wrists are flat, with maybe a slight bend upwards, like the fingers pointing up.

Re: 40 Essential Rudiments

Just remember that there are really only 3 rudiments - single, double, and buzz (or multiple bounce).

The rest are just combinations.

Re: Short Moeller Method Video

I agree.

The wrist should be flat upon impact w/the drum (or pad).

Jacob's seems to be curved somewhat.

I remember AAD, great book for getting your rudiments together.

My instructor used to assign me 10 solos per week.

Re: Groove Essential Jazz Question!!!!

Your solution is to practice the Paradiddle-diddle.

& practice it till your eyes bleed.
