Re: Wilcoxon Modern Rudimental Suggestions?

Re: Fast swing (Cherokee ) groove 79 GE 2.0

Don't get bummed out, man, you'll get there. About your left foot: first, watch the Tony Williams Zildjian Day vids on You Tube. There are a lot of shots of his foot on the hi hat. What do you see?...

Re: Best drum-book for practicing independence and precision on the kit.

Four Way Coordination by Elliott Fine and Marv Dahlgren. Very difficult. But it works wonders. It's good to do it with a teacher, as it keeps your nose to the grindstone. I studied it with Elliott...

Re: Anyone know where I can find Ginger's book?

I had the book for a few years. Lost it in a move. It has a lot of standard rudiments, I remember. It's cool to have because its Ginger. But you can get much more from an array of books and videos...

"The Gene Krupa Drum Method" book has the chart. I'd just watch the video on Drummerworld; you can see what he's doing. It's pretty easy, except for those single stroke triplets at the end of it. Dig...

Re: Elvin Jones transcription round up

I'm sorry you felt too shy to talk to Elvin. He was one of the nicest people on the planet. I first saw him in '68. I was a high schooler, and he was playing with his trio. He broke his bass drum...

Re: 4-way Coordination Book

I studied the book with Elliott Fine. He started me on the first page of three chapters, so the instruction was integrated. The melodic concepts, the harmonic, and the cymbal rhythms.
