Re: Single pedal adjustment - Help really needed

Maybe look around for a used Ghost pedal if that's hat you're used to. I'm sure you could pick up a couple for the price of a new pedal.

If you're looking at getting something new, however, you...

Re: Is this bad form?

I concur with everyone else.

I sure hope it isn't bad form because I do it quite often. I love keeping the ride going while playing a little fill around the kit. I think it makes it more...

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

I've been to quite a few gigs where the sole purpose of it was to sit and enjoy the music. Well, that or a dinner maybe, but you get my point.

Hearing stories like the ones mentioned here make me...

Re: when is the right time to move on to the next exercise?

I get hung up on this too. There a quite a few things that I probably work on too long; getting them really smooth at several different tempos until I feel I hit a maximum realistic tempo. I also...

Re: Call and response audience participation

Perhaps you could resurrect the old "Tastes Great/Less Filling" argument... Just throw it in to any song about drinking.

This. ^

Record yourself too, if you have the means to.

I work on something until I have it down very comfortably. Like looking around the room, not having to concentrate on every single...

Re: Tips on drumming and inspiration please.

False. If you want to improve, you need an outside source for guidance and correction. I ended up learning things in my lessons that I never would have thought of on my own.

Re: Tips on drumming and inspiration please.

Being stuck at the same skill level for a while tells me that you are pretty new and not sure where to begin to make progress.

That's where teachers come in. I would suggest you seek out a...

Re: Jazz: Following the form questions

That makes things pretty clear.

Yeah, I don't parrot phrases back to the soloist when trading fours, but I do pick up on a bit of a lick that catches my ear and try to play with it.

Re: What Haven't You Played Yet but Really Want To?

I have never played on a vintage K cymbal. I would absolutely love to get the chance.

I've never even seen one in person.

Re: Need help with solos

2 words. Max. Roach.

I guess it depends on the context of the solo. In jazz, keep the melody in mind. Play round with it and adapt it to the kit.

In rock, I think it works a little...

Re: Jazz: Following the form questions

Could you explain this a bit more? I thought that was a valid way of communicating on the bandstand. Taking a part of a soloist's lick, reinterpreting it, and responding with it. John Riley even...

Re: Adding a new drummer to the rotation

I see both sides of letting younger guys sit in on the rotation.

On one hand, it's great to let them get the experience playing as well as the opportunity to serve.

However, when they aren't...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

I would say the most common response is something along the lines of "Isn't Neil Peart the most awesome drummer ever!?"

Why does every non-drummer, or non-musician really, think all drummers...

Re: What technique changed your drumming dramatically?

Switching to (primarily) French Grip with my right hand (left hand trad).

I did so only because I injured my wrist a few years ago. Once I was fully recovered and given the green light to resume...

Re: It is your band, who do you pick for lead singer?

Since I'll be the drummer I'm thinking it would be nice to have the best seat in the house behind Susan Tedeschi, Sue Foley, or Ana Popovic.

If you don't mind spending a little extra money, the P-86 throw is really nice. I just replaced the throw-off on my Supra which was stciking quite often. Although it didn't stick nearly as bad as...

Re: Syncopation #2 In the Jazz Idiom For Drumset

I picked it up years ago just because it was in a clearance bin for $2.

As Todd said, it's pretty much just written out examples of a few Syncopation interpretations. If you already know them, or...

Re: Tommy Igoe - State of education

I can definitely see how it would be. It's not a huge step from that exercise to a very musical four bar break.

I'm probably split 50/50 on liking the original versus the cover, even if the cover is more popular.

Every time a subject like this comes up I think of tunes like this:
