Re: Sound blending or replacement

I feel for you, that is a travesty. I grew up on modern metal music and its taken me years of drumming to realise that isn't at all what drums sound like.

I think a lot of metal fans nowadays...

Re: Too Much 2 & 4

Been listening to a lot of country music lately and hey use what you describe to good effect;

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

Thanks Dr Watso for asking your friend at SF symphony.

Re: Drumming & Singing Simultaneously

Yup Bo! I am only looking at the hi-hat hand, sorry :-)

Re: Creating drum parts with hearing protection!

Yep, I used Alpine plugs for almost ten years before making the switch to custom moulds like the one I linked to earlier.

The alpine ones are great, but the difference between foam and Alpine is...

Re: Creating drum parts with hearing protection!

Great thing to discuss SimSalaBim.

A few ideas spring to mind.

1. Get an idea or recording of the other instruments, even lyrics if you have them. Take them home, away from the practice space,...

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

Cheers guys, that has helped me greatly.

Going forward I think I will say 'beat' for the notes falling on the pulse/beat, and downbeat for the first beat of the measure, to keep these ideas...

Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

Hey DrummerWorlders, time to seek your guidance again... on terminology and how we communicate with other musicians this time.

Re: Rudiments at slow speed/low volume

Awesome topic. Thanks for the insight here. This is rarely discussed online, as Todd's article elaborates!

The only time fingers work for me at a low volume might be with a single stroke role, but...

Re: Metronome settings: shortest note gets one beat VS denominator gets one beat

I’m trying to go both ways, each has its own benefit, depending on your goals and your musical interest.

Re: Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Thank you! Those are ace.

I only ever listened to whiskey in the jar and the boys are back in town. Clearly I have been missing out. Such an amazing voice and the guitar harmonies are perfect.

I do it the same as isits.

I used to start on my Right and do R-LR-LR
