Re: The constantly changing drum room

I'm sure you've told us before, but I can't remember, so I'll ask: Did the Reference Pures come with the mirrored bass reso? I don't normally care for those but it looks fantastic on the black set...

Re: Brush comping question

Andrew,

I don't have a tripod for my phone, but I rigged something to try and show it. Sorry the angle is so poor. I just tried to focus on the kinds of comps you mentioned with the + accents.

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

How Long, the 70s tune by the band Ace. The hi-hat part is deceptively hard to make feel good.

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Full disclosure: I'm divorced.

I never found that my music was an issue with my ex-wife or any other long-term partners. But that said, music is non-negotiable for me. I wouldn't get very far...

Re: Rick James' Super Freak breaks

Yeah, I'm hearing breaks on the + of 4 and then the fill in the last bar starts with an 8th note rest, then it counts +2+3+4 with a S-K-K-S-K-K pattern.

Really weird. The more I listen to it, it...

Re: How our perspective changes

Yeah, I made a fierce racket and never wondered if people didn't like it. I thought it sounded awesome, so why wouldn't they? I had to have put my folks through hell. I practiced in my bedroom,...

Re: Brush comping question

Great to hear from you, Andrew. I just mentioned your blog on another thread and asked if anyone knew where you'd been; I guess I have my answer! Welcome back.

I do some weird stuff with brush...

Re: Naked shell porn - Old school finishing.

Man, Andy. Once you wrap those babies in Black Oyster they are gonna look amazing.

Kidding!

Beautiful work as always, my man. You don't have to be a drummer to appreciate the exquisite...

Re: Stepping outside the box :)

Andy, if you think you want to do it, that means you already know you do.

I wouldn't want to be as busy as you, but that just tells me we're wired differently. You probably couldn't have it any...

Re: Jazz ride pattern - looking for good advanced technique videos on YouTube

Re: Most inovative and influential drummers.

Chick Webb. Really set the bar for the big band drummer. He was probably the first to put the drummer out front as a soloist and band leader. Without the famous battle of the bands of 1937, the next...

Re: Practicing on a Pillow

I think it's a great exercise. I wouldn't necessarily recommend that anyone else follow my path, but it was great for me. I started out learning a drum corps-styled technique and grip that emphasized...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

This gets to the heart of an intersting topic that could fill an entire thread of its own about improvisation.

In group improvisational music, the burden of leading where the improvisation goes...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

Hahaha. Of course, I would never deface your beautiful instrument with such sacrilege. But I do enjoy joking about it, I can't help it. :)

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

First of all, I want to reiterate Tony's point that most of the discussion here is centering on backbeat music. I play blues, rock and funk, but I also play improvisational music that requires a more...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

I ordered a copy of the magazine! It also features a special on Tony, so I get that as a bonus.

Andy, should I send you the pink sparkle wrap that I want on my In-Tense snare now, or should I...

Re: WTF!

I don't know, I can't get upset about this stuff. Lots of old business models don't work anymore. So I say kudos to those who have figured out how to work the new system instead of sitting around...

Re: A new project

This comes as no surprise to me. You're one of the cats, a real player and musician. Good musicians are going to want to play with you. Sounds like a fun gig. Enjoy and keep us posted!

Re: Pride and Joy - Stevie Ray Vaughn

I play this song with a couple different bands. I play it as a Texas Shuffle, all of it on the ride cymbal, no hi-hats. I believe that's what Chris Layton did, both on the record and on live clips...
