Re: Teachers, do you force Crossed hands on beginners?

The decision to keep the cross-over system seems almost arbitrary, doesn't it? If that's hard to explain to young drummers then I might as well pack up my teaching bags and move to Alaska.

Brushes Sources

Hey all, been a while -

I'm drawing a blank on who is known for their brush work. I've been preparing Softly as in a Morning Sunrise with Sonny Rollins and Elvin Jones, and Jones is freakin'...

Re: Playing 'loosely'

Culture definitely plays a huge part in how you tend to interpret rhythm. My first band was Billy Joel, and then I listened to System of a Down for the majority of my formative drumming and I was in...

Re: Playing 'loosely'

If you want to get some different interpretation in your mind, listen to Horacio Hernandez. In fact, listen to any brazilian percussion and the like. A lot of the music played in brazilian has very...

Re: Hitting the snare drums with both hands at the same time?

Playing blues rock. That's the Black Keys!

Re: Hitting the snare drums with both hands at the same time?

It takes a bit more stick control to avoid flams when playing at two different heights between the hands. I thought that Lonely Boy was a single stroke sticking, not a generic ride and accent...

Re: Fills incorporating cymbals/in groove fills

Whatever works! I think generally rock drummers - or maybe the young guys at least - avoid using the ride and hi-hats because they're not always balanced with the other voices. Maybe that's a nature...

Re: Shuffling knuckles

A lot of conventional wisdom I've been taught tells me to rest it in the first joint, but mostly when I play it rest slightly higher, more between the first and second joints on the second segment. I...

Re: Are some drum techniques universal truths?

I think the universal truths lie in the ideas that are expanded upon in each of the techniques. Moeller says relaxation, matched says a full quality of sound. Why can't you marry those things in how...

Re: Holy Grail of Drum Kits?

Steve Gadd's kit from the 70's/80's. Or any of his contemporaries' sets within his genre, really. That sound is legendary.

Re: Anyone for a fight? Yamaha fans :)

You have to wonder, since Sakae made Yamaha's 'artist' line drums, wouldn't that be their primary appeal in contrast to Yamaha, who lost the manufacturer of their flagship drums? I would worry that...

Re: Practicing s-l-o-w-w-w

Re: Playing the spaces - how?

I don't usually play space, I just lengthen the note value when it's appropriate.

Reading that is weird, but it's the difference between a staccato note and a legato note, and in the case of...

Re: Why are there more male musicians than female musicians?

The funny thing is that the number of women involved in drumming within popular genres and the public eye is steadily increasing. I don't think we'd find as many Cindy Blackman-Sanatas or Meg Whites...

Re: Traditional stick position

That's pretty much how technique in matched grip works. In traditional the fulcrum is between the thumb and index finger and that's where most of the grip's pressure rests. The other fingers are used...

Re: Traditional stick position

My short answer would run something like this: The dimensions and weight of a drumstick - as well as the physics surrounding it - change very little between designs, and even then no matter what the...

Re: What's the most challenging groove, fill or lick you know?

A bar of improv.

Re: Books on Latin Rhythm

I gave both a look and I'm feeling Uribe's book a bit more than the Duduka/Weiner. Thanks for the reference!

Anyone got anything else?

Books on Latin Rhythm

I've recently been learning more and more about the basics of playing latin styles on the drum set, a subject that I've been grossly undereducated on throughout my musical life. So far, I find it a...

Re: The hardest gig yet

I agree. Covering a song doesn't by any means require you to play to the chart.

As far as 'channeling your inner ____', just channel you. Good drums sound like good drums.
