Re: How does Gavin do this?

So I am wrong about there not being a click! Sorry about that!

I think plenty of non-drummers, especially at that level, aren't going to be fooled by a swiss triplet or a blushda, they're both...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Well, you might think it needs to be cued, or click tracked, or something, but it really doesn't. Everyone in this band has a great sense of rhythm, doesn't get thrown off easily by cross-rhythmic...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

No, you wouldn't. Years? Maybe weeks, probably days. And you don't even need to change sticking patterns, or even play fills, to learn it. You're merely intimidated by the unfamiliar, as we all...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

What's stopping you from practicing cross-rhythms? Do you not know where to start? This is not as difficult as you think it is, although it probably seems that way to you now.

EDIT: This is also...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Practice methods, man, practice methods.

Notice that GH uses a lot of cross-rhythms as he solos, meaning that, although the time signature of the tune is kept in 4/4, he's often playing another...

Re: Lost trying to create a sound

Sounds like a drum with heavier hoops on it, die cast probably. Drummer is slugging rim shots every time. A reverse dot head would give lots of 'crack' and still be durable enough for this type of...

Re: Other than practice- quickest way to improve?

Here's the thing: you won't be able to just "learn by ear", for a few reasons. First, drum recordings vary widely, and many songs the drum sound is so processed that it becomes nearly unrecognizable...

Re: Getting the most out of the Chaffee books.

Time Functioning patterns is great for sussing out coordination issues, and developing overall facility. Yes, you should learn to improvise within the exercises, but man, it's going to sound dry no...

Ever wondered why Bonham grooved so damn well?

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Not for sure, but it was a pretty safe bet, given the tune, and imagining a bunch of middle schoolers playing it, hanging on for dear life, haha! Besides, you probably wouldn't get "tired" from...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Disagree somewhat here. Even if the technique is great, there's still the process of building up the musculature in order to gain speed and endurance, which just takes time, experience, and bit of...

Re: My speed has stalled

Man, sign up for Bill Bachman's program, and use it as a supplement to your private lessons. At $20/month, it's the best deal you'll get. With some solid stick technique and trained hand motions,...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

It could be fatigue, but probably there's a bit of boredom as well. The grooves he plays in the band's songs might just be too easy and repetitive if he's switching so easily. If he can switch and...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Ok, I see where you're coming from now, thanks for clarifying, and sorry for misreading!

So the downside is that he can't play the top of the hi-hat comfortably, since the stand won't adjust low...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Sorry if that sounded arrogant, that wasn't the goal. But IMO the arrogant thing would be to discount the many thousands of drummers who learn jazz while leading with one hand, and the teachers who...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Well, if and when you take lessons, you'll discover that learning jazz/swing independence requires that one limb play the basic ride pattern, while the other limbs learn to improvise around it. If...

Re: Practicing everything with both hands

No one cares if you're righty, lefty, or switchy; they only care about what you play, and how you sound when playing it. If a weaker limb is holding you back due to a lack of speed or dexterity,...

Re: Elementary jazz question about accenting on the ride

It's equally likely that an accented ride cymbal note will be played along with the bass drum, or the snare drum, or by itself. The accent is simply meant to add meaning and purpose to a particular...

Re: Does independence just click one day?

Independence (interdependence is really a better word) doesn't happen by itself, no matter what your friend told you. If it seemed that way to him, then he wasn't paying much attention. Chances are...

Re: Can anyone reflect on the sound of these?

If the bearing edges are folded over (as in a typical steel shell snare), then they probably sound very nice, and probably not very different from other wood drums of equal size with triple flanged...

They sound pretty corny when played this way, actually, and too busy as well. The rhythms and spacing of rock and funk are just very different from those in jazz.

To the OP: One book just isn't...
