Re: am i evil music chart

There are drummers out there who will make drum charts for you, of any song you wish, but it's expected that you're going to pay money for this sort of thing. Free drum tabs and charts are usually...

Re: Making $ playing drums

For that kind of bread, yup!

TC, what gigs are paying so much? Private/corporate gigs? Are lots of players doing similarly well?

Re: Purpose of singing during new breed

When you say or sing the rhythms aloud, you will notice immediately if you make a mistake. That feeling of awkwardness is your cue to stop and examine where things are going wrong. When you just...

Re: Bass drum triplets - rusty / struggling :(

So, you want to play this groove, but occasionally throw in 3 consecutive 16ths (instead of 2) on the kick, while playing the ride on the "and"s (up-beats), and the snare on 2 and 4?

Chaffee...

Re: Click Tracks

Also it's not uncommon for a band to track with a metronome for the first minute or so of a song, and then for the engineer to cut off the click midway through the performance, and let the band...

Re: Drummer- the only musician that can't mess up?

Scientific proof that drummers can't be messing up the groove. (https://jyx.jyu.fi/dspace/bitstream/handle/123456789/21439/urn_nbn_fi_jyu-2009411339.pdf)

Basically, when there are slight shifts in...

Re: Tempo Training Program?

For some this may be true, but not for all. It's entirely possible to play with a click and still sound bad.

Re: Tempo Training Program?

Seems reasonable on its face, but deeply flawed. You don't learn to play steady time by hearing fewer clicks.

Re: Tempo Training Program?

Not everything can be taught via web videos or a book. Sometimes the topic at hand is so nuanced that you need to be a student in the same room as a good teacher. A book or a video can only tell...

Re: MEMORIZING DRUM PARTS

Agree, you just "see" how many measures to play, rather than have to read it.

Re: MEMORIZING DRUM PARTS

Too many issues and circumstances to list here!

The OP obviously needs to learn to make charts, and the picket fence method is a great place to start. Later on, the OP can add more detail, such...

Re: All the things that go into drumming

As someone who has been through this -- disagree. Timing can be refined, and while, yes, it will require a click (or loop, or some other non-human source) for a period of time, eventually the click...

Re: Any method for fast memorizing long and complex phrases

The more senses you can engage, the more quickly you can absorb a new piece. So, listen to it, read it, and sing it. All of the above are better than any one method alone. But if you're still...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Without a click, it would likely fall to the bandleader to "conduct" the band through the drum breaks. Not that big a deal, really. Maybe GH would simplify or make more clear the pulse. As long as...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

That's very uncool. You just don't F with someone like that mid solo, it's disrespectful. As a drummer, you'll get "wtf" look if you just dropped out during anyone else's solo. Hoping these were...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Point taken. :/

EDIT: Also, Larry is allowed to never learn cross-rhythms because GH used a click with the CBS Orchestra. After all, rhythmic awesomeness is easy-peasy with a click in your ears. ...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

So I am wrong about there not being a click! Sorry about that!

I think plenty of non-drummers, especially at that level, aren't going to be fooled by a swiss triplet or a blushda, they're both...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Well, you might think it needs to be cued, or click tracked, or something, but it really doesn't. Everyone in this band has a great sense of rhythm, doesn't get thrown off easily by cross-rhythmic...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

No, you wouldn't. Years? Maybe weeks, probably days. And you don't even need to change sticking patterns, or even play fills, to learn it. You're merely intimidated by the unfamiliar, as we all...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

What's stopping you from practicing cross-rhythms? Do you not know where to start? This is not as difficult as you think it is, although it probably seems that way to you now.

EDIT: This is also...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Practice methods, man, practice methods.

Notice that GH uses a lot of cross-rhythms as he solos, meaning that, although the time signature of the tune is kept in 4/4, he's often playing another...

Re: Lost trying to create a sound

Sounds like a drum with heavier hoops on it, die cast probably. Drummer is slugging rim shots every time. A reverse dot head would give lots of 'crack' and still be durable enough for this type of...

Re: Other than practice- quickest way to improve?

Here's the thing: you won't be able to just "learn by ear", for a few reasons. First, drum recordings vary widely, and many songs the drum sound is so processed that it becomes nearly unrecognizable...
