Re: fill ideas??

I'll second that...
I (almost) never practice specific fills. I do spend time just moving around the drumset along with a metronome. Over time your brain will weed out what sounds stupid and retain...

Re: New Member - 45 yr. old wants to play!

Welcome aboard! I just turned 44 last month. I started playing again 2 years ago after about 15 years off.

I'll let the others discuss equipment... it's hard to find a concensus on that topic...

Re: Come on lucky lottery numbers!...

Thanks for the info, Smoothjazz...

Yeah those ARE beautiful. I also noticed the original snare stand, unlike the ones I found which apparently have a newer double-braced stand.

I also noticed...

Re: You'd think I would know, but...

Yep... that's the one I was referring to. Has a little wear and tear, but perhaps that adds a bit of character. At least I can hope that's the case, cuz mine's a bit dinged up too!
Mine still...

Re: You'd think I would know, but...

Thank you MuffledTom... good info!

I guess the information on the post from the Pearl manager is as accurate as anyone could wish for!

Mahogony and birch with an inside ply of "luan"...I guess...

Re: You'd think I would know, but...

Yeah, I don't remember Pearl dealing too much in birch at that time...

Someone told me it was maple with maybe a filler ply or two(poplar maybe?)

You'd think I would know, but...

I've had a Pearl DLX kit since the mid 80's, and always thought that the shells were maple with maybe a ply or two of something else.They certainly look maple, at least to me. Not as light colored as...

Re: help needed with this fill

Here's what it sounds like to me:

The song sounds as if it's written with a repeating pattern of a measure of 4/4 followed by a measure of 6/4, or maybe it's 10/4... In any case, you can count it...

Re: easy way to play odd time signitures? (need help)

I guess I've just never really found counting while playing terribly difficult. And if I can count while I play, I can play a truly bizzarre time signature without having to practice hours upon hours...

Re: Tom note progression.

Agreed... I also have a 12, 13, 16 kit and, yes you can lower the 13 or raise the 12 slightly and stay within the drum's "sweet spot" to achieve a sensible interval. My point is I would never spend...

Re: easy way to play odd time signitures? (need help)

This makes perfect sense... the subdivisions of 2 & 3 must follow the pattern or "clave" of the music. If you're playing something in 7/8, you can play 1212123 and it will mathematecally fit, but the...

Re: Tom note progression.

I never personally bothered tuning toms to specific pitches. Depending on the drum, you may never find the point where the drum "explodes" and resonates if you insist on forcing that drum to sing a...

Re: 2 problems, anyone help?

Regarding your floor tom tone and volume issue... can we assume the following?...

3) Your hoops are true and not...

Re: First Jazz standards to learn?

I'd say that if you plan on being an all-around working drummer, some mandatory standards would be things like:

Misty
New York, New York (Sinatra)
A-Train
In the Mood
The Lady is a Tramp
...

Re: Difference in Bossa Nova and Samba?

Good stuff... Your video was loaded with info! Rhythms are far more interesting when you have a sense of their history and evolution. Now I have something to keep me occupied for a while!

Re: 3 consecutive bass drum notes.

The best advice I ever got on playing 3 quick BD strokes was simple but beneficial (to me, anyway). Concentrate on accenting the 3rd stroke. Try playing the first 2 strokes flat footed, then lift the...

Re: Late in the evening,,, AKA,, Mozambique

Yeah... If LH plays a 3/2 clave, LH & BD play the same thing in the first half of the phrase and make an interesting contrast in the second half. If nothing else, it makes a heck of a good exercise...
