Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

So, is he not using rebound then, since he seems to be actively lifting his elbow with the wrist alongside it.

Is that just objectively bad technique, but he can get away with it because he's able...

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

Hmmm, the thing is that Mangini holds the record for WFD, not Jojo Mayer, which suggests that the shiver technique has more potential for speed.

But then again Jojo Mayer has never entered (nor...

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

Mike's technique seems to be creating maximum tension in the body - directly opposed to traditional techniques like the freehand that are all about using rebound and getting rid of tension.

As far...

Re: Mike Mangini's 'The Grid' DVD - does explain the shiver technique?

Hey, less of that mate.

When have I ever asked for a shortcut?

I may have asked for the most time-efficient way of building technique and speed, but never shortcuts.

Mike Mangini's 'The Grid' DVD - does explain the shiver technique?

Mangini has a new DVD - was wondering if anyone has it, and if they can confirm whether it explains the shiver technique that won him the World's Fastest Drummer competition?

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

Well, I think the logic is that if you play at a tempo for anything less than an hour, you can compensate for sloppy technique by 'muscling through', hence some people can muscle-through to playing...

I have heard different opinions on this, but I have a friend who is a very proficient black metal drummer, and he says that you have only truly 'mastered' a given BPM if you can play 16th notes for...

Thanks a lot to you (and everyone who has suggested practice options, but what speed should I practice at?

Something well within my comfort zone? So, if I can play a maximum of 160bpm for 30...

How to build up weaker hand?

What practice methodology would you ascribe to building up your weaker hand?

At the moment I only have access to a practice pad (no kit).

I have found that even after years without playing, my...

Re: Got about 15 mins each day to increase speed... How should I practice?

hmmm, I wasn't trying to get suckered into buying a product - just wanted to know what parameters would be best to do in the 15 minutes.

So should I spend all of that 15 minutes working at 1 speed...

Got about 15 mins each day to increase speed... How should I practice?

As title says, started a hectic job and got a lot of commitments at the moment, but I still want to build speed.

I can reliably dedicate 15 minutes each day to this goal. I live in a tiny space...

I'm sorry if I seem pessimistic, but the Murray-Spiveck seems to be just the freestroke principle perhaps with a slightly different grip. But then again, the freestroke is just based on the efficient...

Re: Couple of questions on how best to practice for speed

Just for clarification - Murray Spiveck technique is the same as Gladstone, which is the same as Freestroke, isn't that right? Moeller is the only one fundamentally different from those...?

Not true, I also post about vague concepts to do with playing on two different unrelated tempos at the same time (such as 131bpm left hand and 156bpm right hand)....!

Couple of questions on how best to practice for speed

When practicing for speed, should one primarily;

1). play relatively slowly for lengthy periods of time (5mins to 30mins) with perfect technique.

2). play at a speed on the edge of comfortable...

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

But can't Mike play 99% as fast as his shiver technique using conventional hand techniques though?

Does he use his shiver technique to maintain the 16th note rides @ 170bpm?

Re: Does Chris Dave use Mike Mangini's 'shiver' technique?

Cool. So are there any examples of any other drummers but Mangini using the shiver technique?

Is it actually useful seeing as finger control and wrist control will get you very similar results?

Looks like it could be a version of Mangini's 'shiver' technique with a bit more stick height. Do you guys...

Re: The ultimate independence test - can anyone do this?

Gret performance.

But I hear no polyrhythms, just a lot of phasing in and out out synchronization.

But perhaps I don't have an ear for polyrhythms, and they are there but I'm not picking them...

Re: The ultimate independence test - can anyone do this?

What's up with the attitude?

This is more of a thought experiment, and I already have admitted it is not really musical - just wanted to know how far the concept of independence could be pushed.

Re: The ultimate independence test - can anyone do this?

Yes, I picked them at random. Well - not totally at random because I didn't want there to be an easy relationship between them such as 100bpm and 200bpm or even 150bpm and 100bpm.

So, let's scale...

Re: The ultimate independence test - can anyone do this?

I'm not saying it would be musical - but, arguably, a lot of independence exercises are not musical anyway.

I'm just saying it seems to be the logical extremity of independence exercises - play in...
