Re: Shipping Cost From UK To US?

I've never shipped a drum set, but would also strongly suggest insurance. I do work for a large (largest) shipping company and have done international shipment auditing as well as customer service. ...

Re: Jim Gordon

Yeah, you are right. No one sounded like him, or had those particular unique feels and musical sensibilities. He was and is a different drummer.

And his drums, cymbals, tuning, etc. He sounded...

Re: Ever look back at videos of yourself playing and cringe?

If I click on an older video of myself playing, it is generally out of morbid curiosity. Even as of last year. :)

Re: Question about hand technique on the texas shuffle

Musical decision says it best. Right on.

A few days ago, playing along with a drumless track "Texas Shuffle", I spent several minutes thinking about this very question. Often I was accenting the...

Re: THE AMBIDEXTROUS THREAD

A very simple way to practice left-hand lead or ambidextrous playing, is to practice singles, doubles, and paradiddles in a 16th note 4/4 groove, with the hands reversed; and practicing the big 15...

Re: A new drumming hero emerges!

Good stuff. Seems like the voice was over-dubbed towards the end...appeared out of sync with the video anyway.

Re: New Breed for a relative beginner?

I would't jump right into New Breed, personally.

Bill Bachman made a good suggestion with "A Funky Primer". that book has loads of variations of beats, chock full of cool ideas.

Re: Playing for Teacher

Had the same experience at lessons. Always due to fact I wasn't as comfortable with the materials as I thought.

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

I liked that drumming too. He's definitely a fine rock drummer and I do still believe minimizing his career is a little harsh. On the other hand, i've never viewed him as so much an innovator or...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

I think that's a little harsh. He's been around the block and has had a great career going for himself. He also co-wrote a #1 hit in Rod Stewarts "Do you think I'm Sexy", which is a pretty...

Re: Bass drum makes windows vibrate

Can you put something against the window to reduce vibration? Pillows, etc? I know that's an obvious answer. haha

Re: How to build up weaker hand?

No doubt about it. I started noticing a nice difference when practicing French grip, especially with mallets as well as brushes and on difference surfaces. Great practice.

Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

the lead singer was making a little joke to take the pressure off you. I think if you hadn't been so affected by it (and outwardly shown it), the singer may not have reacted that way. It seemed to...

Re: How to build up weaker hand?

One simple alternating exercise I played quite a bit and still do, is a six-stroke roll with paradiddle to reverse, played through sixteenth notes.

Re: how to use Stick Control

I don't think so. Years ago (early 90's) I studied with several instructors who were Berklee grads and successful players/instructors, and they had me in Stick Control as a total beginner.

Re: Hi-hat foot technique

Normally I am not one for blaming hardware over technique, but in this case you may want to look into a new or used hi-hat stand with some adjustments. :)

Re: Wfd starts next thursday july 17

I was one of the first (on youtube channel) to say they were single strokes, at least as far as I could tell at the time. It's pretty obvious the OP HAD a legit argument while nearly everyone was in...

Re: Help me!!

I'd spend the money on used pro-level cymbals (hi-hats, ride) and a good solid snare such as a used Supra. Easily doable with $700 USD.

Re: Hi-hat foot technique

Can you loosen the tension on the hi-hat pedal, so it's less springy and you can lift your foot "normally" without topping it out?
