Re: Thinking outside of 'sticking patterns' - Inspired by Casey Scheuerell

That book is great. A lot of these types of exercises (i.e., starting with a rhythmic line, and using that as the basis for orchestrations) originated with Alan Dawson, who applied them to Ted Reed's...

Re: Jazz: Following the form questions

This topic reminds me of something Bob Moses says in his book Drum Wisdom (I'm paraphrasing from memory, so I hope I don't misrepresent his words). He says that our primary job as drummers when...

Re: Help needed from you Blues Boys

Yeah, I should have listed Earl Palmer, who is one of my favorite drummers. I tend to think of him as an R&B/New Orleans/rock and roll drummer more than a "blues" drummer, but he could play anything,...

Re: Help needed from you Blues Boys

Here are some good older blues drummers to check out:

Fred Below (a ton of people in Chicago--check out Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson records that he's on)
Odie Payne (another guy on a...

Re: Concentration Question

If that's the case, you might want to check out some live albums featuring Al Jackson, Jr.'s drumming (I look for any opportunity to talk about this stuff). Here are some of them (all of them except...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

They moved us to Flynn's for the semi-finals. It was nice to experience a different venue from the previous two nights.

Did you notice the guy playing drums behind the gospel singer, and also the...

Re: Concentration Question

I thought you might find that helpful. :-)

As for the audience, this was from a performance in Oslo, Norway. Steve Cropper has said that in London they were mobbed on this tour, but many of the...

Re: Concentration Question

Regardless of whether Jackson "got it 100% right," I'm fairly certain that he's the one who made the decision to play it that way. That said, for whatever it's worth, he was a different drummer live...

Re: Stick Control - How even is even?

A study guide by Danny Gottlieb was recently posted on the Stone Percussion Books web site, detailing the Stone/Morello approach to playing (which can be applied to Stick Control and Accents and...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

I was in the Rae Gordon Band. We did make it to the semi-finals, but not to the finals. I think there were about 10 bands in our venue. It's always fun watching different groups on a bill, and seeing...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

Hey Larry, I played with a band at the competition this year, too (we flew down there from Portland, Oregon). If I'd known you were going to be there, I'd have tried to see if I could have caught...

Re: Shuffles

Yes, great stuff--thanks for posting that! I'm guessing it's Fred Below on that tune. He was on most of Little Walter's 50's output.

Re: Shuffles

I'd call it a swing shuffle. Or maybe a jump blues shuffle.

Re: Shuffles

Here are some examples of some blues shuffles that I dig:

Re: How to pull it off on the bandstand for jazz drummers please

Good suggestions from Todd. Another approach to developing the "ruff bossa" method comes from a Joe Morello variation on the first three pages of Stick Control: for every "R" sticking play an 8th...

Re: Claus Hessler

I've had the DVD for several months, and I think it's excellent. Since I already had (and have worked out of) your Daily Drum Set Workout book, the part that interested me the most was all of the...

Re: Even rudiment dynamics - how important for beginners?

Okay, I see. Here's a suggestion. Try playing just exercise #1 with variation #1 (both feet together on the beat--or pick whichever foot variation is easiest for you right now), and play it VERY...

Re: Even rudiment dynamics - how important for beginners?

I like your analytical nature, and the fact that you're thinking of different ways to use Stick Control. However, if you're having trouble playing some of the Single Beat exercises without accenting...

Re: Carlos Vega

He studied with Richard Wilson, as well as with Murray Spivack, I believe. MD did an article on Wilson back in the 90's, and Vega was was quoted in it.

Re: Does Tom Angle inform the level of mediocrity of a drummer prior to ever seeing the drummer play

For whatever it's worth, I've read that Max used to have kits supplied to him most of the time when he played. I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case with this kit, and that someone else set it...

Re: Practicing rudiments without a pad or metronome. Bad idea?

I think it's a great idea. I wouldn't recommend it as a substitute for practicing with a pad and a metronome, but if it allows you to get in extra practice time away from the pad/metronome, it should...

Re: Mount Rushmore of Drumming: What does it look like?

Perhaps Chick Webb deserves a place on this list. He was a massive influence on Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich and other drummers of his era (not to mention later drummers like Art Blakey and Elvin Jones).
