Re: Musician vs Artist

Who's offended?



It's like the old GROOVE OR CHOPS bullcrap. It's endlessly fascinating to some people.

Re: Musician vs Artist

Well, it's all about context. A craftsman is also an artist, and an artist is a craftsman, and there are contexts where you say one or the other. It's not a big deal.

Re: Musician vs Artist

People love musing over that word. It's not subjective. If someone is a creative worker or performer in an arts field, they're an artist, because that's what the words mean. Art is the crap they...

Re: Fast doubles for multiple measures

Learn Three Camps (https://gattsdrums.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/the-three-camps.pdf) and play it five or more times a day. In a few months whatever you're trying to accomplish will sort itself out.

Re: 16th notes on Hi Hat

You don't have to get a lot faster. Like, a lot of Brazilian drummers have ridiculously fast right hands, and it's a very cool effect at a certain tempo range, but it doesn't keep getting cooler the...

Re: Are We Just Being Silly?

a lot of squandered opportunities... when I think of all the reruns of Hee Haw I could've watched... all those extra shifts at the paper box warehouse I could have taken on to earn the money to do...

Re: How to play a rhumba?

Yeah, he said elsewhere he's auditioning for a big band. In that context it's played more like that Philly Joe link I gave, or the Elvin link on my blog post, or the Ray Charles link you gave. The...

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

A couple of problems with that video:

-- I haven't seen rolls released with the same hand as the last double stroke anywhere in any Wilcoxon book. He writes all of these things out note for note...

Re: How to play a rhumba?

I went ahead and wrote up a blog post (http://www.cruiseshipdrummer.com/2018/09/groove-o-day-rhumba.html) detailing this a little more. I think everybody basically makes up their own version of this...

Re: How to play a rhumba?

This is the basic idea (https://youtu.be/pcRZVZSHfJo)-- there's no one set way of doing it. Snares off, both hands on snare, LH plays rim clicks, with a ruff (three, four, or five stroke, depending...

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

I guess this is literally what's intended, and what John describes-- you have to pencil in this sticking for all of the 12s except the last one, because the written sticking is wrong.

I actually...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

That video needs an update-- things have gotten a lot worse since Justin Bieber was the worst thing in the world. A lot of what's in there are just basic features of the pop music industry. But...

Re: Whose autograph is this?

That's the cymbal smith's signature. Do you know what brand it is? There should be a stamp on the top.

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

The book Rolling in Rhythm is also real messed up. I was blaming it on Richard Sakal, who made several bad Wilcoxon editions, but clearly the original is a little screwy, too.

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

Uhhh that's all screwed up. Normally I believe a ruff on a roll is old school rudimental-ese for starting the roll a 16th note early, with the ruff played at the same speed as the body of the roll....

Re: My Latest Blog Post: What does it mean to be a "Professional"?

It doesn't have anything to do with how much money you make. Mainly it means you're in business. You may be succeeding, scuffling, or failing, but you're a professional if you're in business and are...

Re: Switching to lefty setup

The way to do it is to just play that way. Forget about learning anything new for a few years and get to work relearning all your old stuff backwards.

What do you want to do that for?

Re: Correct sticking for portraits in rythym

We also did Goldenberg-- it's probably more useful. PIR is ridiculously dense and I haven't touched it in years. I actually like Mitchell Peters's intermediate book more than all of them for general...

Re: Correct sticking for portraits in rythym

Mostly alternating. There are very few rudimental stickings anywhere in the book-- no paradiddles or rhythms sticked as doubles. On p. 12 you have to play some flam taps. I worked through that book...

Re: The Logical Order of Study

No, he was a grad student when I studied with him. We just did normal snare drum stuff, and weren't particularly rudiment-focused. I haven't seen the book you're talking about-- it's probably great,...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Re: How swung should the jazz ride pattern be?
