Re: Drum Snobs

I don't know if I possess drum snobbery or not
but I seem to find something interesting in most drummers I see.
Some aspect. Maybe that signifies an insecurity on my part.

Re: Neil Peart - A Newfound Appreciation

I find it interesting that drummers discuss "world's greatest drummer" more than other instrumentalists and their instrument. I think it's because percussion exists somewhere between music and...

Re: Neil Peart - A Newfound Appreciation

This is %100 true.
I'm not sure Rush would have survived if Neil didn't join the band.
He's amazing.

Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.

Gadd is a great musician, and just happens to play drums.

No wonder he is in such demand by other musicians
playing whatever instruments they happen to play.

Re: What to practice?

I think you should save some time to play whatever comes to mind. (always in time)
It seems your routine is overloaded with discipline. Give the right brain some.

Re: Is there still drumming life after a heart attack?

Hi Bobacwrd

In my opinion, this question is too important and dire to ask on a message board.
If it was me, I would rely on the doctors. No offence intended to anyone on this message board, but...

Re: Is being able to read sheet music that important?

For me it was important because, as I create a part for a song or recreate a part for a song, my ability to see figures and rythmns in my head (as they would appear on a page) allows me to learn the...

Re: Double Stroke Control and Fulcrum

As far as I'm concerned, if it sounds right, it is right.
Concentrate on working relaxation into what you play,
keeping strict time.

Let your ears lead.

Re: Sheet Music Questions

You play by ear already and that is good.
If you were a beginner I would say learn by ear first.

But it's a bit like asking, should a poet learn how to read words.
Of course he should.

Hans Bathelt

Anybody like this band and drummer from the 70s?
They were Germany's answer to ELP.
I liked this type of prog rock and found Hans Bathelt's drumming to be precise,
tasteful and reserved. I also...

Re: Carl Palmer

It sounds like you saw a great show. I like smaller venues like that.
I'm a bit envious. I did see ELP back in teh 70s but it was Cobo Hall with 10,000 people.

Re: Is Jazz drumming good for beginners?

When I taught, I found the new and/or young student needed to learn something they could relate to, first. I would never ask a new student who had a particular reason to learn the instrument to begin...

Re: Rhythm heals

I heard Steve Gadd say he uses drumming as a form of meditation.
At times I get into that state too.

I'm not an expert on this, but (assuming you can't return it to the store) maybe a qualified drum repare person could help. I know with some cheap drums I once had, I "trued" them by attaching...

Re: I'm standing next to Neil Pearts kit right now

Oh yeah, Peart is a great drummer to see (and hear). Very visual.
I must say, the last time I saw Rush, I had to move to the side of the stage.
It was loud.
