Re: Better than the original??.....Noooooo!!!!!!

I humbly suggest that sometimes different versions work for the listener's mood. Forget this "better" business.

I was listening to Stevie Wonder while reading this thread ... and made me think...

Re: Well...I didn't think I was being loud

+1 for this post and Larry's earlier one. It is mostly about technique ... and a technique that, once developed, will pay dividends for the rest of your days.

For many things, rimshots being one...

Re: Less isn't always more?

I missed the ":)" on your post ... which somehow made the clip even funnier (was expecting some deep thoughts on the matter). The "Spinal Tap" related references in youtube comments were on the...

Re: Advantages of metal snares in jazz.

From taiko:
I've never subscribed to the idea that there is any particular right drum for any particular style of music and certainly not for jazz.

Re: Mount Rushmore of Drumming: What does it look like?

Good point Henri about the great unwashed (i.e. non-drummers).

The other issue is narrowing it down to 4 drummers. There have still only been 43 presidents (correct?) ... so a tribute to the...

Re: A song sprung on you out of the blue?

I just got caught out on a NY Day gig at a hotel brunch. It was the Vince Guaraldi's Snoopy's Christmas tune that we all know and love. Well .... actually I apparently don't know it very well - I...

Re: is anyone ever satisfied with their playing?

"Satisfied" is the word prompting the debate. As above, I'm usually "satisfied" if my band mates give me praise (genuine praise) after a gig. That does NOT mean I don't evaluate what I did ......

Re: Most egotistical genre ;)

^^^ +1 for that sentiment.

Jazz and classical have taken their lumps on this thread. But when I think of ego and music, I think of blues guitarists as being up there at the top of the list. I...

Re: Brushes Sources

Re: I just acquired this 1950 Gretsch Bop Kit

It is always permissible to change one's mind. ;-)

Indeed, these videos were not what was expected (despite your description, I was expecting wild, uncontrolled thrashing ... lol ... my apologies).

Excellent thread ... applicable to all drummers at some point.

As Larry and alparrott mentioned, resorting to simplicity helps when other players have their own interpretations of the time.

oohhhhhh, there's that bass drum again. Love it! On the playing side, indeed a good start! I too lack the groove (or "authority" as said earlier). Time ... woodshed ... more time ... ;-)
