Re: If you were just starting to learn how to play today..

Get a qualified teacher.

Develop good practice habits.

Study your technique diligently, but have fun in the process.

If you get bored, swap your kit to LH. : )

In Christ Alone....HELP!!!

For the life of me, I can't feel where the downbeat is supposed to be in the verse..if 3/4, it's sometimes on three, sometimes on two...depending on how you count it.

The chorus is 6/8, I think. ...

Re: MAPEX SATURN -> Studio Tuning??? HELP!

Super-2 is a thin, 2 ply head by Aquarian.

Note that I said coated in my examples, lol. The clears are good for live playing but ring a bit much for recording for my taste.

How does one know if they have good time?

When they can score better than 80% on the Beatnik "expert" level at all tempos, LOL.

FWIW, my personal best is 72%....the other levels are fairly...

I think "3 years" is overstating it a bit, but I see both sides having advantages. Personally, I think it all boils down to the individual practicing GLS. What are you trying to achieve? Are you a...

To clarify: I understood his meaning, I'm just not sure his approach would be understood by the majority of young drummers today (at least those consumed with all things BPM)....

Evidently Mr. Silverman has longer thumbs than I, or the picture is deceiving. If I place my thumb slightly ahead of my index finger, it closes my "gap" between my index and thumb, dampening...

Re: Mapex Saturn...tuning styles?

Yes, I had come to that same conclusion.

I gave the EC2's away this weekend.

Not my kind of head.

Re: Mapex Saturn...tuning styles?

I'm happy with the way my Saturns are tuned. If I wanted a "singing" or really bright drum sound, I'd put G1s on the batter sides, tighten them up a bit and let 'em fly. I'm not a heavy handed...
