Re: How fast is your Left hand? (also your right)

Yes it does. But some activities will more directly transfer to drumming motions than others.

This particular topic I've studied closely so I've tried to place some of the left-hand things you...

Re: Flatfoot technique

This technique is how I started but it wasn't called "flatfoot" at the time. It was just called "running in place" on your pedals.

I think the technique is very valid, especially if you want to...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

One can get locked into extremes. For example, because of my strange equipment path, I can do lots of weird things on the hihat. So to Finns point, I "explored" my hihat in many ways because I was...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Cool pic.

What's that thing I see next to the big gong? Is that a kitchen sink? If so, I suppose it's a play on the cliche, "everything but the kitchen sink" ?

But Shawn Pelton still...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

That's funny... I evolved the opposite way. My first "kit" was just a hi-hat stand. Seriously! Not even a snare or a bass drum. I was living in an apartment at the time and the hihat was the only...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Context? Maybe yes, maybe no. Don't think in discrete steps; think in a continuum:

Don't think in context of "drumming" ---> think in context of "percussion" ...
Don't think in context of...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Hey, no need for anyone to feel guilty.

A "big kit" is anything larger than bare hands slapping rhythms on kneecaps. Some of the rap performers on New York City streets will outgun most guys with...

Re: Reverse Traditional Grip

LOL... right there you lose credibility.

Traditional grip allows me to hold the sticks differently... can't do that when it's matched grip... well because... it's matched. Hmmmm....

Re: why you should never leave your 'comfort zone'...

Because of lochday's post, I just realized that my notes overlap Jason Nutha's material by quite a bit. The plagiarism was unintentional (apologies Jason!) and instead of stealing his thunder, I...

Re: why you should never leave your 'comfort zone'...

This is a good point. But in my experience, there is very little genetic predisposition to use the mouth to communicate a thought vs using the hands or any other limb on your body. Yes, there's a...

Re: Maple vs. Birch advice

In the big picture, maple vs birch is not going very noticeable compared to which heads you use (1-ply vs 2-ply) or whether you use nylon tip sticks vs nude ones. Of course tuning will affect the...

You may be overthinking this but if you like dissecting your head then I offer the following notes. Others are free to disagree. If the information helps you, great; if not, throw it away.

Re: First Exercises to Master

I prefer to think of the strokes numerically on a continuum with technique in parentheses, like this:

1. single stroke (via arms, wrists, and then fingers manipulating the fulcrum)
2. double...

Hey, play what you want to play and don't waste your energy defending yourself to these guys. :-)

You can start with any drummer you like and find a song that's workable and enjoyable. A few...

Re: Begginer, what should i start with?

I think Tommy Igoe has a good DVD for beginners:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005UV69/ref=pd_cp_d_title/102-7062928-6750540

His other disc "Groove Essentials" is good too.

Re: Thomas Lang

This point-of-view gets into the big-kit/small-kit discussion...

Some drummers approach the kit as a complex polyphonic instrument. They instinctively think of the drumset as a xylophone. This...

Re: Thomas Lang - matched grip???

It seems that he plays "songs" with a power backbeat in matched grip and all the finesse stuff (solos) using traditional. I saw him a few weeks ago and for the first 3 songs (playalong), he played...

Re: Desert Island drumset technique?

If you take away the constraint on mounting the toms... you might get some interesting answers. Possibly put the snare on the floor and mount the kick pedal to it; and hang bass drum from a palm...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Sounds like wise observations. Lot's of Gershwin's was not critically well received when it first premiered but considered classics now. I'm sure the Beatles music will become more revered after...

Re: The importance of rimshots

Absolutely positively. Gives the snare a nice crack you just can't get any other way no matter how hard you hit the center of the snare. A skinny kid with a well-defined rimshot will cut through...

jazzgregg, I'm going to converse with you in this post with no sarcasm (sillyness as you'd call it).
