Re: Drumming with no hi hats

Nope you are a retard. The fifth commandment of drumming says thou shalt have thine hi-hats and play them with much glory to the drums gods on high.

Jk but seriously who cares what you have on...

Canopus Japanese Sword bop/rock

Has anyone heard this kit? I read the review in Modern Drummer and heard the sound samples. I think so far it sounds great but I would like to know if anyone has actually played one.

Re: Looking for Ska, learning material

It seems that this whole discussion is about the third wave of ska, also known as punk-ska. You should start trying to discover the roots of ska. How it came to be from rock-steady and reggae. It...

Re: Help me pick the cover of "Working the Inner Clock -part 2"!!

Hahaha I live in Salt Lake City and that is funny and true to some extent. In the drummer community I don't see that as being a major concern. I can only think of a few people who have a slight...

This last year of college we have been really shedding Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, Sammy Nestico, and Count Basie charts. It has been an amazing experience. My favorite big band is the Count...

Re: 5-Star Drum Shops

At my local 5 star shop I have not been ripped off. I always check multiple sources before buying and so far they are usually cheapest. If not I go in with another advertised price and they can get...

Re: this music is way ahead of its time.

I love the Bad Plus. They are part of the new wave of Jazz. Similar groups would be Avishai Cohen, the bass player NOT trumpet player. Also Joshua Redman, his style is different but it is new and...

Re: Brian Blade... My hero

He plays great. It is very musical and groovy. I also like how he plays in many very different bands like Joshua Redman, Brian Blade Fellowship, and Black Dub. I think he already is one of the greats.

Re: Drum-tech vs ICMP vs ACM

Re: need help with a practice routine

What about world beats? Like bossa nova, samba, songo, and so on. That is a whole different world of music that has helped my drumming by leaps and bounds.

Re: Point of diminishing return when playing hard

I think that is true. You can only hit so loud before it sounds bad. My drum teacher is a great player and can be extremely loud but his sticks dont go very high and he does not bash it he plays it.

Re: How does one go about learning difficult songs

This has worked for me, take it at like forty or slower if you have to and speed it up only when you can play it clean like 4 times in a row. Only speed it up 5 clicks.
