Jazz bossa?

I'm playing some jazz bossa nova (Corcovado, Blue Bossa, etc.) and I've listened to a lot of examples. Seems there are about a million different ways to play a bossa.

I am used to the standard...

Re: BPM question

In jazz (and perhaps other genres) my experience is that you do both: count in half-time (1 ... 2 ...) and then in quarter-note time (1,2,3,4). I've always liked that more than "ONE! TWO! THREE!...

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

Nah. We just do the traditional American thing: take a foreign word and pronounce it wrong!

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

Looking at kids playing is always depressing. All that time and energy, plus they get to start with more learning and resources than you did.

I comfort myself with the knowledge that most of them...

Re: How to naturally play quieter?

With respect, I would say you're both wrong. If you try to drive in a tacking nail with a sledgehammer you're going to have a bad time, no matter how good your touch is.

Using lighter sticks (and...

Re: How to naturally play quieter?

I'm on the opposite end of the spectrum: I play quiet naturally and have to force myself to play harder. So it's a bit difficult for me to figure out what I do that makes my playing quiet. But some...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

The problem I have with this type of pedantry is that it doesn't scale. We're moving towards a society where physical copies are the exception, rather than the rule. So if we maintain the idea of "it...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

So if nobody is paying for music, you think only the record companies suffer?

Just because someone says "stealing as wrong" doesn't mean they're saying "record companies rule". The industry is...

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Not sure you can really defend that position. Jazz has complexity. Modern music has none. In fact there have been about 100 articles each year about the specific formula the industry uses for modern...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

I'm not a Metallica fan, I mean I liked some of their stuff back in the day because friends were fans and they were good songs, but I have never bought an album or song. But I don't get the Napster...

Re: Should I Stay Or Should I Go Question

Cool, thanks. I think I'm going to try throwing a jingle ring on the hats and try doing downbeats with my left foot while I play the tom pattern, hopefully that will fill it up.

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Hip-hop went through its artistic phase. Weirdly, it got to its commercial/crap phase much more quickly than rock. I guess the industry has streamlined the process. Or perhaps there wasn't that much...

Re: Using a snare as a floortom

Re: the OP, with a very shallow floor tom (like a snare) I imagine you'd have to close-mic to project any sound to the audience?

This is what has kept me from picking up a pandeiro. The idea is...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Well I can't prove anything either way, but I know if I listen to Morello he sounds more technical than Buddy (Buddy was crazy fast but Morello seems as fast, if not faster, and way more technically...

Re: Anyone else notice the cost of sticks getting ridiculous

Just jumping in to defend Amazon: I seriously doubt you purchased it from "them", or that they packaged it. They front a bunch of stores who do their own packaging and shipping.

Re: Serious drummer? (I think not ;)

I have a question, and it's an honest question, not one where I'm trying to make you think like me:

Do you think goofing around on stage undermines your show?

We play pretty much just bars, and...

Surely you realize that you've lumped together a bunch of people of varying talent levels. You've also brought up ProTools regarding the Stones who were around for decades before it was invented.

Joe Morello.

Everyone talks about Buddy because he was such a big personality. But Morello was the guy everyone wanted to play like.
