Re: Making weird noises while playing

I am astounded that Kieth Jarrett didn't top the list for pianists making weird sounds while playing.

Re: natural talent vs.hard work

Re: Negative song lyrics

I think that the subject of music is independent from morality so long as it is art. On the other hand the intent of the music can be morally wrong (e.g. white power propaganda music), but the music...

Re: Negative song lyrics

I quite disagree, one of art's biggest facets is the idea that one can express emotion in such a way that the audience can feel it. To put restrictions on what emotions can be expressed would be...

Re: Negative song lyrics

Which one? There are dozens of them every year, each one conflicting the results of the last. Unless it was a damn well done study, I should think that it would have been deprecated by any number of...

I recently got a Meinl doumbek and I am looking for some good resources to learn to play (right now I am mostly using the stuff on Pete Lockett's website). I have found a number of DVD's, but I can't...

Re: double stroke roll question

I use the rebound, but I add energy to it on the pull-up.

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

I didn't know that you played with Spinal Tap until I saw the episode of The Daily Show when they played (at first all I saw was the Pearl set and the hands and I thought it was you). That is pretty...

Re: Counting exercises...

Play with the metronome clicking on 1, 2, 3, 4 for a while (soloing on top); then have it click on 1; once you are comfortable with that have the click on 1 of every other bar. Continue on this way...

Re: press rolls with trad grip

I never press the rolls, I use an open hand, but firm fulcrum pressure. I find that I have a greater range of volume with this method, but it also took me a while to switch from the press style.

Re: Female drummers?

No mentions of Maureen Tucker? To this day she is one of the most progressive drummers to have ever graced a rock band.

Re: Mapex Meridians?

Do the Meridians come with a removable no-hole tom mount like the Pro-M did?

Re: Traditional grip, ring finger.......

When I first started I would get the same thing (just above the cuticle), it goes away in anywhere between 1 week and a month. If you start getting a callous there you need to loosen your grip though.

Re: Math Metal Drumming!

I think this unfairly oversimplifies the genre. Any element of music can be claimed to be of a self-serving nature, e. g. Bach's Art of Fugue could be called mathematically complex just to be...

Re: How do lefty play Tradtional grip?

Technically traditional for a lefty would be the exact same as trad for a righty, otherwise it isn't particularly traditional (marching drums only hanged one way).

If you have your kit set up...

Re: What makes a song/groove cook?

Why can two violinists hit the same note and evoke two different emotions? It depends on what you put into the playing (the time and rhythm) and how you hear the music (even when playing solo,...

Re: Metronome practice

An excellent exercise after you get good at tempos is to subdivide the beat into triplet orchestrations. Once you can do a triplet shuffle against the metronome playing eighths, there is little you...

Re: what grip type do you use?

Standard traditional, my right hand depending on the position of the drum or what I am doing. Mostly German on the snare, American on the up tom, French on the ride (using a push-pull motion), and...

Re: Drumming Degree.. worth doing? (Online?)

It would be best to make melody your thing, at least one of them. Without an understanding of melody it is hard to converse (musically) with anyone you are playing with. You have to understand what...

Re: JOJO MAYER: NEW Hot Video...

MPEG is, mov is Quicktime and much more proprietary.

The video plays and looks fine using mplayer on Linux (a bit more picky than most players).
