Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

Another change! Oh man, he changes endorsements faster than anyone I've seen. Wonder if Tama will spend a few years on a travel kit for him.

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

Re: Sight Reading help please

Reading is something you have to learn to do, regardless of what your intentions are in the future. Here's my $0.02.

1. Spend 10 minutes a day sight-reading something you've never seen before....

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

It's kinda funny that everyone here is talking about Meytal. I'm indifferent about her playing as I don't find any real fun in the music she's picked to play, but she's got gazillion hits on her...

Re: M. Goldenberg's Soldier's March question...

92bpm is fair; the 32nd note bursts really aren't that long and demonstrate single stroke rolls.

Re: Who uses Moongel?

Moongel on drums or cymbals as the situation dictates. Always take it off.

Re: Retarded left foot - suggestions?

Rock your left foot on 2 and 4 in jazz, as well as anything else you play. It's a good way to get the feel in your foot, and you can start getting into other movements from there.

Anyone have a transcription of the Blondie classic they can share? (actual sheet music, not tab).

Re: Confusion on rolls - open or closed?

I do not consider a closed roll a "buzz" roll in any context, but especially not in orchestral context. If I'm playing a closed roll, I'm doing either 3 or 4 bounces per stroke (assuming the tempo...

Re: Great car for a drummer

I can get a 18x23 DW collectors bass drum in my back seat (in a soft case). Not that I ever use the damn thing, but once in a while it gets dragged out. Top limit of the trunk is an SKB 14" (tall)...

Everyone needs a drum teacher. Talk to some of the greats and you'll realize that they've all been learning, constantly, throughout their whole career.
