Re: Al Jackson jr break in Turn You Loose. . . sounds simple . . .

Re: 10 lesser known but oft heard drummers

Re: Drumming Nightmares

my nightmare always involves gear set up. Either I have to move the whole kit or something is missing that I can't find and can't play without. Just a variation on the "late for work" thing, I guess

Re: Heel Up - How to do quick double hits?

[QUOTE=wildbill;1100042]Do you do both hits with a downward motion of your leg?
