Re: Hardest rudiment to play

Good post. You are correct that ironing out single and double stroke rolls to sound even and "right" is the difficult challenge-- not to mention the other rudiment variations. Yet, for some folks,...

Re: using your body to keep time - legitimate?

Sure it's legitimate. But if you know what's good for you then you will develop that internal sense of time and pulse. Why move and expend energy when it isn't even necessary? Oh. That's right....

Re: Virgil Donati is the Buddy Rich of our time ("IMO"...I suppose)

Re: Cutting Hi-hat rod... Advice?

You're right..but it still wouldn't hurt for the threadstarter to observe the configurations of other lefty drummers to gather ideas before hastily cutting the stem down to size. Other changes...

Re: Cutting Hi-hat rod... Advice?

I second this preference. Rather than cutting the hi-hat stem, maybe changing up your configuration will be the better thing to do. If you do cut the stem, you will probably end up regretting it...

Re: Is there an "internal clock"?

Foot tapping has been proposed to be a tool of limited value. This may be true while sitting behind the kit. If a highly internalized sense of time is present then all 4 limbs can be free.

Re: Time keepers or creative drummers

I agree. The Keith Moon should post his rendition of these songs since the versions done by the original artists obviously are not good enough. hahahaha

Re: Is this cheating?

Exactly. You're still completing the task of executing a technique. It's not cheating.

Dream Theater might not be your cup of tea, but how can you possibly be so hasty in denying the fact that the musicians within the band sit in the upper echelon? Is it not evident that Mike Portnoy...

Re: Short Moeller Method Video

I'm concerned now because...

So is ANYONE capable of drumming?
