Re: The foot is the key to groove

I agree with the observation that the kick drum has become more important than the back beat on the snare. It's also the one thing I really listen out for.

It takes years just to get the...

Re: playing less and keeping time

8ths on hi-hat is the crutch that the OP is trying to free from.

Play very slowly a familiar beat but play 1/4ths rather than 1/8ths.

Try alright now by free to get the feel of playing 1/4s.

Re: Where to practice drums in London?

If you do find somewhere central do share it. I'd like to know!

Re: Who does this, really?

I have a number of basses and cases for the basses, but the cases I like the best are the ones that are lightest and with least padding. The basses tend to live in their cases anyway so I throw the...

Re: Electronic Roland TD-11K

I use Vex kits but you should be able to turn off the reverb on the toms within the module.

Re: Bad hi-hat recording

Recording sounds ok to me too. It sounds a bit crude/basic/naive.

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Great post Andy.

The short decay you mention makes a lot of sense in a live multi-instrument setting - so how does this translate into tuning? Someone mentioned tuning the reso up a fourth but...

Re: bass drum depth

I'm always amazed that some (marketing) folk think that cannon bass drums look better. The opposite is true in my case. I think narrower drums look better. Either way non-drummers won't be able to...

Re: Why is it you never see threads saying....

I've bought a set! In fact I've double-failed in buying a used set.

The sky didn't fall down.

Paiste Twenty's 13" hats, 16" crash and 20" ride.

Bargain. I knew the seller was a cymbaholic...

Re: Auralex Hovermat?

$300 sounds rather high. I'm surprised they haven't priced themselves out of the market with this price.

Re: Really wanky behaviour....

My only comeback, other than it's a real shame is, since the timing was crucial to your acceptance of the gig, it would (in hindsight) have been wise to inform them. In otherwords we accept this gig...

Re: The "I wish I hadn't opened my big mouth" thread ;)

Preparation is the key. Get together with her prior to the event and agree what you are going to play. That way it will seem spontaneous but surprisingly tight!

Re: The importance of conditioning your left wrist

Cool. But you lead with the right and so accenting the first beat of each quad is counter to playing singles yes?

If you accented the 2nd or 4th beat would this be more natural?
