Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

It's like with drum corps guys, which I once was, and of whom I have known many: they get out of corps, and someone will play Clair de Lune (http://youtu.be/ZIsQPdC9YnY), and they'll still be hearing...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

Sure, I hope that helps. Re: #3, if you do what you're doing on an actual snare drum, I think you'll hear what I mean-- you'll be hurting your ears, and not getting a very good tone. Plain old...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

I can't tell you exactly what's causing the pain-- obviously something's wrong with your grip/stroke-- but here's what I'm seeing, real quick:
1) You're changing your grip a lot, especially on the...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

He definitely knows not what he does. But I think this is just what happens when people listen only to Metal, and nothing else, though-- that's what they hear.

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

220+ is not ridiculously fast, and should be attainable by any pretty-dedicated student-- that's where you realistically use this sort of thing in actual playing. The LH fill in thing is designed for...

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

For the two ways on p. 27 (RH plays the line/LH fills in, and alternating triplets) I would be looking to get them above 220. To get them that fast the LH fill-in way, you'll have to break up any LH...

Re: How do you feel about buying used records?

I want to hear more about this. What's the implication here?

Re: Okay, if all tone comes "from the player's hands"

I guess this is a serious question. I think we need to look up the meaning of the word 'from'-- it may have a little broader meaning than you're assigning it.

Re: Jazz ride pattern - looking for good advanced technique videos on YouTube

Beware, there are a lot of very bad ones (http://www.cruiseshipdrummer.com/2013/05/annals-of-wrong-things-ride-cymbal.html) out there; a lot of people who are not actually jazz musicians (and a few...

Re: Open handed technique

Then they're stuck with a very poorly positioned main lead hand-- on a normal drum set, at least. I think they have to learn everything twice, or redesign the drum set; and if they're going to do...

Re: Open handed technique

First time I've ever been accused of being conservative about anything. For someone who's kidding around, as you say, you're piling it on awfully thick. I guess actually including cons in a thread...

Re: Open handed technique

I won't speak for Bill, but to me it's significant that he was already a professional player, working a very creatively-limiting gig.



It's an amateur's idea of creativity. If we're talking...

Re: Open handed technique

He was also a proponent of practicing 8-12 hours a day-- at least that's the kind of schedule his students had to adopt to get through the stuff he was having them do. If you aren't putting in that...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I have to pay for some Sonor Phonics I just bought, some I have to part with some drums and cymbals I really don't want to. I have these items for sale:

90's, Keller-shell Slingerland bop set ...

Re: Upside Down Samba. Say What Now?

What a weird response. I was making a factual point about something you said. I guess your knowledge of samba must be completely tapped out if you have to go directly to the personal attacks like...

Re: Upside Down Samba. Say What Now?

I figured that's what he meant-- it's just a funny way of phrasing it. Samba is not limited to music played by a bateria, and they've been using drumsets to play it for more than half of the history...

Re: Upside Down Samba. Say What Now?

Hmmm, so what Airto, Dom Um Romao, or Milton Banana, do/did on the drum set going back 50-60 years is imitation samba?

Re: Seriously? This can't be real.

$89.95, baby. If you buy two, the second set is $49.95. That's only if you're really into saving money, though.

I wrote this up in a little more, ah, depth, on the blog-- should be good for a...

Re: Help with Black Page #1 (eleven-tuplets)

Alain sent me his version, which evidently is Zappa's original manuscript, and was from Joe Porcaro and Ralph Humphrey's library. Which is pretty cool! The lick is exactly the same; the only...

Re: Playing behind/ahead of the beat?

I'm not concerned about correctnessó I was thinking the purpose of a shortcut like this is to take advantage of an existing skill; which, for most people (I hope!), flamming late is not. This seems...

Right, don't listen to Jack Dejohnette to learn about pop drumming-- I'm not sure why you bring him up. But if you get out your James Taylor records, and listen to them, you can find out how the...
