You NEED to watch this video about drummers...

I personally really enjoyed this video...hope you guys like it too. It's two drummers about to audition for a big jazz school. I've definitely had this conversation before.

Re: Playing for unplugged sessions

Check out the Nirvana MTV unplugged videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDHVpB8RuX0&feature=related) on youtube. Dave Grohl (definitely a hard hitting drummer) is using wire brushes in that video,...

Re: What's your favorite sounding rock snare recording?

Agreed. I never really got into 21st century breakdown but I love American Idiot, which also has a killer snare sound.

Re: I have an amazing idea for working on your left hand, while you're browsing the web!

I've done the same thing before while watching TV, working out of Stick Control. After about two weeks of about an hour every day I actually noticed a very slight improvement in my playing,...

Re: Drummer pR0n (Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd)

Wow!!! Those are some awesome stories. Especially the one about Carlos Vega, that would have been pretty unreal. Steve Houghton once played my drum kit at a clinic for my high school jazz band, I...

Re: wash riding, a music style

To make it seem like this is something new, which of course it isn't. I'm sure plenty of poor saps will fall for it too...just the latest (and saddest) in a line of sad attempts to "revolutionize"...

Re: Notes for tuning drums

Just throwing this out there-- when I tune, I usually actually start with the bass drum, then go to the lowest tom, and work my way up. This is partly because I play rock and tune the bass and toms...

Re: Good drumming to the audience

That's an awesome quote. I mean, the way I see it, since my band just plays covers, I notice people get the most excited when we play a song that a lot of people like. And if you were to think about...

Re: Darren Jessee

Yeah, I've seen the videos online of the reunion concert, but I can't believe either that it's not on DVD yet. I can't imagine that it wouldn't sell, Ben Folds still seems to have plenty of fans,...

Re: Darren Jessee

I couldn't agree more, especially about the difference between Ben Folds' band and solo career. Don't get me wrong, I love Ben's solo stuff, I saw him live a couple months ago, and he's still an...

Re: Darren Jessee

One more thing I forgot from my first post-- Darren can play a tasty samba too. Check out this live recording of Julianne, Darren plays over a piano montuno in the first verse.

Darren Jessee

OK so this thread is a little late, since Darren Jessee was the drummer for Ben Folds Five, and they broke up 10 years ago. I don't think he's played drums on any recordings since--though he is...

Re: Most Underrated Drummer - Male + Female?

+1 to Pollyanna's posts, I couldn't agree more. Only once I started recording myself playing did I realize that I can barely play a steady groove! It takes even more work to play it with real feeling...

Re: The decline of the double stroke

I think I've noticed a similar trend. I know that it could be considered generalizing to say that there is NO popular music that features double-stroke rolls on the drumset, but if you listen to top...

Re: Gretsch Renown...unfair to call it "mid-level"?

I've owned my gretsch renowns for about 1 1/2 years and I couldn't be happier, they're high quality drums and they sound gorgeous. All the drums have an extremely wide tuning range and have great...

I don't care what anyone says, those were some straight up BA cymbals. One of the coolest ideas I've seen in a while. I didn't really dig the whole abridged version of the Who, though, I want to hear...
