Re: Transcription by paper or ear??

I agree with Odd-Arne. Everyone learns differently. A good mixture of both would be beneficial to all sides.

Re: Has anyone else had wrist/elbow problems from using French grip on the hi-hat?

I just use an american grip. With american, you can use both wrists and fingers, without damage to either. In american, your fingers can get about as fast as french grip. The only times I use french...

Re: from TRADITIONAL to MATCHED grip

I am a tenor and snare player, so I can tell you that it was really only made for the old military marching snare. Honestly, I think it's bogus that the traditional grip is called traditional because...

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

My dad was a navy corpsman, so everyone called him Doc. He always used it on video game profiles. These days he goes by Eastern Paladin. It's a card from "Magic the Gathering." Great card game.

Re: Trad or matched? completely torn here

I said that in another post mate. It was more of a personal issue.

I prefer matched. When 98% of all percussion instruments are played matched, Why change it for that 2 percent?

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

My name is Christian Xavier Winslett. I'm not looking to be famous, but I have never seen the need to be anonymous. The only thing being, people actually call me "Draco" in real life, so the two...

Re: Traditional Grip

Raise your thumb up vertically to use it as a guide, and dribble the stick like normal. Just use your thumb to guide it in the right direction. When I first started practicing traditional grip, I had...

Re: Practicing s-l-o-w-w-w

Words from my favorite quad player! Hey Bill, How much would I be looking at to buy one of your speedy hi-hats?

Re: At what point does a triplet become running double bass?

True. What I actually meant was a "roll with six strokes in it" I wasn't referring to the rudiment. As my chart goes, that's true. Rllrrl. I think theoretically, the only difference between the six...

Re: At what point does a triplet become running double bass?

I understand what you're getting at. There are several different versions of the six stroke rolls and I think it works to just call it a sextuplet. I think that those who are not entirely familiar...

Re: At what point does a triplet become running double bass?

It didn't. You're right to a certain degree, but there is a distinct difference to how the rudiments are named and how they are played. The seventh stroke is the extra stoke to make a rudiment feel...

Re: At what point does a triplet become running double bass?

Not exactly, mate. (Yes, I speak a little austrailian)

X stroke rolls are made to be just that. They are simply the amount of strokes in a given time. Normally played in doubles but can be played...

Re: Drum set hand technique

I actually play my pad a lot. It's the closest thing I have to a marching snare. The only problem is, the pad doesn't rebound as much as the real thing so I have to warm up on the real thing to get...

Re: Drum set hand technique

So, you feel like you need the pad to warm up? I would think that any one person's way of warming up is fine if it is how they feel they get the "feel" better.

Others might tell you that you...

Re: Pad rebound vs E-kit rebound vs Actual Snare rebound

I agree. The pillow is just unreasonable. Most use a towel, I actually use a thin blanket. It's probably about the same thing though. Besides, nobody is going to play an intricate snare solo on a...

Re: Pad rebound vs E-kit rebound vs Actual Snare rebound

I actually like the sound of kevlar heads. And I don't like the sound of drumset snares.

The kevlar heads are made to have a more definite attack so that you have to work really hard to be...

I use match and traditional. Traditional more than matched, but I like matched more, I am better with it.

For a time, I used an exercise hand grip I bought that I would carry around in my pocket...

Re: Why use traditional grip on drumset?

I come from drum corps mentality, and so I practice snare solos and rudiments in traditional. I constantly practice leads off different hands to achieve perfect hand control. As my teacher always...

Re: Why use traditional grip on drumset?

Simple, yet extravagant.

Although, your statement is left to be mostly irrelevant within itself.

The sound IS what really matters, but many have misread the meaning of my question.

Re: Why use traditional grip on drumset?

If you can do it at fast tempos, it would be excruciatingly obvious that someone would be able to do it at a moderate tempo. The whipstroke is ideal for great power, slow, moderate and fast alike.

Re: Why use traditional grip on drumset?

If I remember correctly, Lang actually switched to match simply because he felt it didn't make a difference. In his words, he could play everything in match that he could in traditional. It was sort...
