Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

Re: Good exercises for two-handed hi-hat beats?

I have to play a number of tunes like that... Some I can play with one hand on the hat but they're fast tempos and I often play 3 hour shows .. So endurance is key. When it gets to that tempo zone,...

Re: Jeff Beck w/ Vinnie (Full Crossroads 07 Set)

Jeff said Vinnie was the best drummer he'd ever played with.. but as a 'melodic instrument' the guitar leads the band. It's up to Vinnie to support the lead vocalist.. and Beck or Santana's timing...

Re: Yamaha Recording Custom - 22" kick head/tuning advice please
