Re: "Seven" versus ?

Re: "Seven" versus ?

I emply Mangini's "Not Quite Doubled" Counting Method.

you take the number you want to count to, add 1, and then half it

example: 7 + 1 = 8, 8 / 2 = 4

Re: Is it just the generation gap?

I'm twenty and rocking a 3 up, 2 down set-up. I like playing unison to the melodies of the riff as fills and my bandmates are really digging the melodic polyrhythms I've been playing at rehearsals. ...

Re: Poll: What is your genre and bass drum size?

I'd have to say metal because 2/3 of the bands I worked with ended up being metal bands.
