Re: What Do I Practice? HELP!

Haha, I think I failed to specify what kind of bands I play in. We play in bars, but the stuff we play is very simple stuff. I'm in a program called the Academy of Rock. It's a place where teenagers...

What Do I Practice? HELP!

I've been playing for a little over a year now at an average of around 2-3 hours a day behind the kit. I'm getting to the point where I'm ready to get into some more technical aspects of playing, but...

Re: So I was following the music...

I can get past it, but for a while it was frustrating as hell. I've only been playing a year, but I've been listening to progressive music forever so I'm familiar with odd times. Of course, it's...

I was thinking up ways to improve my skills when I wasn't actually sitting behind the kit, and one way I thought up was purchasing some sheet music and listening to it and following along while...

Re: If you could Have Lessons Fron Any Professional Drummer Who Would It Be?

Re: Mike Portnoy

I really couldn't have said it any better myself. Portnoy is my most influential drummer as well. He's such a great player, and like you said, so is everyone from Dream Theater. I love progressive...

Porcupine Tree is one of my favorite bands. I love progressive music!! And I didn't know he was a drummerworld member... That's pretty awesome. Sorry for the late reply, I just got back from seeing...

Re: Different Styles: Rocks, Jazz, and Blues

Thanks for the tips, and the links. I think it'll help out a lot. I don't really think a list of tunes is necessary, since you pretty much nailed it. Now, I'm going to go get to work. Thanks again!

Re: Different Styles: Rocks, Jazz, and Blues

Different Styles: Rocks, Jazz, and Blues

I have a slight problem. I play mostly common rock songs and metal, though I listen to prog. I've only been playing a year, and I'm not quite good enough to be attempting some of those Dream...
