Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

In a perfect world one would master Traditional, Matched and French and be able to transition from one to the other as required.

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

I stand corrected; the debate continues. Good thing I didn't mention using the middle finger as the fulcrum rather than the index.

(If you are interested here is an article from a while back)

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

Thanks; he seems to be doing a sort of Gene Krupa thing.

Here is opinion in the 70's

Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

I don't think until I stumbled on this video had I ever seen him do so; he was such a proponent of the traditional. I don't think it really matters all that much these days and perhaps for this tune...

Re: Only Weird Al Could Pull This Off-Love It

I have to admit that I was surprised by the swearing as I have always seen Al as a fairly clean cut sort of cat. I found this mini review interesting as the poster takes a darker view in general. You...

Drums sound great. Really very good testament to the quality, to sound so clear through what I assume is the camera mic.
Of course your playing helps too.

It is on the first track but that was not the point, as mentioned in another reply; it was just a way for me to introduce the video; it doesn't matter about the stick thing it is just a good...

Re: Even Jo Jo Drops A Stick Now & Then-Nerve Live

I can relate. I was not being critical in anyway, it was just a way for me to introduce the video.

Re: Even Jo Jo Drops A Stick Now & Then-Nerve Live

Cheers;

In the latest Modern Drummer it shows his kit without the traditional tom position so I am assuming it was new. In his DVD Secret Weapons For The Modern Drummer he plays a traditional set...

This seems to...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I use nylon & wood, different sizes and brands.

My Ludwig Venus was not getting any love from me due to Black Beauty purchase

I bought a head for the Black Beauty as an experiment but it just did not suit the drum so I put it on the Carl Palmer Signature piccolo and wow does it ever work well. It is a Remo Power Stroke 3...

Re: I accept defeat.

You are right on the money as far as I am concerned; for this gentleman however perhaps 2 overheads and one for the bass and one for the snare.
I may be in the minority here but as far as bass drum...

Re: This kit set up intrigues me

Of course that means the music you play would maybe have to be different from what you are playing normally as well. That...
