Re: Musical memory

The more of your brain engaged in the idea the better the intake, retention and expression.

Re: guitarist using "the force"

I always assumed difficult to navigate obstacles were the issue and navigation was the skill Han showed....so he made the run using less distance than most due to his navigation skills.

Re: Interval between 16" and 18" floor tom

I would say it depends on how you have your toms tuned...high? low?

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?
