Re: seamlessly switching between singles and doubles around the kit

One thing I used to do was to keep a log of my practice, I did it for about 3 years and noticed some things. A good portion of this involved Stick Control. But rather than tell you my results, see...

Re: Tommy Igoe's Great Hands For a Lifetime DVD

I can't really answer your question because I don't have the DVD in front of me. A friend of mine from our pipe band snare corp lent it to me a few years ago and I gave it back to him sometime...

Re: Top Secret, 2015 Basel Tattoo

I'm sure they had many hands in their inception. Eric Julliard, the musical director of the Tattoo was a founding member of Top Secret. And some friends in the Middlesex County Volunteers (an...

Re: Top Secret, 2015 Basel Tattoo

You would love it, Bo!

And as far as their bass drum line playing more, I bet you will see that in the future. The Blue Devils were at Basel this year and here they are playing together. (It's a...

Re: Timing test

Interesting. Yesterday, I got 818 when I first did it, hand on the table and tapping the "L" key on my desktop computer really hard. Then someone posted to use the space bar, so I concentrated and...

Re: Rudiments & drumset application

Certainly you can skip the "square form", since so many of the players of that music have never played it. And I'm sure Chuck Silverman's video of applying paradiddles to the Cascara was just to...

Re: Funkiest 3/4 ever..

That was the first song I thought of when I read your post. Of course it's a waltz. But then I started to play it and it felt like a 6/8 ballad. I'm on the tail end of the boom- if they do that...

Re: Rudiments & drumset application

Bill's post is right on the money when it comes to drumset. The only thing I'll add to that is that drumset playing uses a lot of unison strikes. If you're playing a basic rock beat your hand might...

Re: Funkiest 3/4 ever..

Off the top of my head- She's Leaving Home and different verses of several of their songs are written in 3/4. There are others written in 6/8 or 12/8 that you could argue are felt in Waltz time. On...

Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

Couldn't you say that about most beats if you played them out of context?

On the one hand, certain key rudiments just happen to be convenient groupings of essential stick motions to help gain...

Re: Tell me about Alan Dawson

Yes, I do. BD 1/4 notes, 2 & 4 on the Hi-hat. It helped me from running away with the pattern, especially when my goal was to play them on the set. At first I viewed it as an annoyance; just...

Re: Tell me about Alan Dawson

Get the book. The ritual is something to work up to; I would definitely not start out with it. John Ramsay, who transcribed Alan's teachings into that book describes it here:

Re: Anatomy of Drumming

I think John is onto something and look forward to getting his book. A while back there was a thread debating pinky on or off the stick (matched or on the lead hand traditional). I posted a top...

Re: Keeping Time doing a (buzz) roll as a fill

As Bill says, play a check pattern to keep the strokes consistent.

Here's another take on them to consider. We use buzz rolls all the time in pipe band drumming, so while this may not directly...

Re: Minor Jazz Treasures, Great Memories

My pleasure, geezer! It's a little indulgent (and maybe fan-boyish) but I wish more people could have seen these greats before they passed. Not just Elvin & Art, but so many others who created a...

Minor Jazz Treasures, Great Memories
