Re: Buzzing techniques

This is a very good way to go about it. I found improvements fairly quickly doing something quite similar after a month.

Re: pro drummers with bad technique

If you can get your ideas out the way you want them to sound, who really cares? For example, take two of my favorite drummers out there today, Tain Watts and Ari Hoenig. Tain has great technique, he...

Re: Who would you like to sit and drum with?

I'd like to sit down with Billy Hart again. That guy sounds and looks like he's channeling ancient gods or something, it's really great. Same thing goes with Elvin, although not "again".

Re: Triplet Fills

The only crossover problem with the fill may be the last triplet, but that's not a big one. If you practice the fill for two minutes slow, you should be on the path to righteousness without sticks...

Re: New jazz instruction dvd

Yeah man... Just rock yourself ten great jazz recordings to start (PM me if you want some recommendations), Ted Reed's syncopation, a teacher to walk you through a few ways to play the Reed, and the...

I've spent a lot of money on tickets. If anyone wants to come hang or...

Re: 11 steps to the mozambique

Hey J, I dig the transcription.
However, I would add this if I could. These Gadd mozambiques are super cool, but they're just beats. Just beats that have no bigger concept whatsoever. If you want to...

Re: Greg Hutchinson

Hutchison is a master drummer, not my favorite though. That Young Lion thing is a little tiring to me now. No doubt a great musician though- the guy can play and swing in a league few are in.

Re: Charley Wilcoxon - The All American Drummer

Disagree, for this purpose. I've learned that whole book and it's ridiculous, really great, but I think AAD is much easier to break up into workable chunks, and they're just easier. Modern Swing...

Re: Charley Wilcoxon - The All American Drummer

No!!! Of course not!!! Practicing two technique oriented books is not allowed, the Jazz Police are comin' to get ya!
Sorry, I'm being sarcastic of course. You should practice whatever you want to in...

Re: Charley Wilcoxon - The All American Drummer

That book is pretty cool. If you focus on getting every study perfect, you probably have a lifetime of work in front of you. Do them slow and focus on perfect tone from the snare, good stick heights,...

Re: Technique Vs Bands

Yeah, Lang's done a million gigs with heavy pop acts. He has a groove of doom, but he's doing the technical thing now, which I guess is fulfilling for him. Don't mistake his abillity to play retarded...

Re: The Dangers/Benefits of self study

There is no substitute for having a good teacher. I had a great studio drummer as a teacher for three years- I learned how to play all styles from him, and things I was particularly interested in, he...

Re: Jazz Bass hits

Playing four on the floor is useful, especially in a more bebop or straightahead context. Seriously, it's just a tap though, like a 1/4 of an inch from the head. You shouldn't be able to really hear...

Re: nervous

This is going to sound ridiculous, but it worked for me. I had a lesson with a great bass player once, this guy George Mitchell. He said, "You know what your problem is? You're not a bad mother....

Re: Hip Concept for jazz

Great ideas man.
Speaking of more ideas along this line, remove the backbeat from some of those drum and bass grooves, and you've got some stinkin' uptempo swing ideas.

Re: How do you know when you have good timing?

The answer to this question is very simple. If you don't know you have good time, you don't have good time.
Good luck to all of us trying to get it.

Re: John Riley's Beyond Bop Three Voice Comping

Well, it really depends on the musical situation in question. In particular, what the rhythm section and the soloist are doing is determinant on what you should be doing. For example, if the bass...

Re: John Riley's Beyond Bop Three Voice Comping

One more thing to add: you should do these exercises very very slowly at first, particularly those tough last ones! If I were you, I'd repeat them over and over and over instead of running through...

Re: Want to get faster? Do 20 second sets!

Well, as far as that goes, I'm all about practicing something for five minutes, then putting it up two bpm on the metronome, or choose whatever time works for you. The way to get speed is to work on...

Re: The Rudiment Ritual?

You really can't. It's a series of rudiments applied in (more or less) musical phrases that needs to be completed every day for a while.

Re: The Rudimental Ritual Brush Variation?

Hey man,
Actually, I did the ritual for a month and a half with brushes. It's a great idea. However, I quit it because I'm doing some pipe band type snare exercises for technique stuff.
Of course,...
