Re: Playing the spaces - how?

Also if you play with other musicians, you listen to them and become a part of the ensemble. If you play only by yourself, you really have nothing to listen to, other than yourself. Fills really...

Re: Playing the spaces - how?

Re: Video: difference in sound between a 'buried and unburied' beater

There's a place for both, if you are a dynamic player. It's like heel up vs heel down. Totally different techniques that you should know both.

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

Rhythm is a MUST! Reading notation is a must for most, haha. Again, it doesn't hurt knowing more about anything.

Re: Hi Hat Control

I enjoy doing hat "crashes" on the &'s while im doing a basic ride (step, crash, step, crash). Also, what could be fun and create independence is doing a 3/8 pattern on hats step, step, crash, step,...

Re: Quick question on drum roll notation

Instead of writing out the "rolls" I would do the notation with single slashes, easier to read what you want it to be.

Re: How do you play clean doubles and rolls around the toms?

Well toms are naturally harder to roll on because they don't rebound like a snare. Basically if you want to get good at rolling on toms, practice on a gel-pad or pillow to get your chops up. If you...

Re: How do you approach a Low Volume Gig?

I've found that instead of using your normal technique, you can almost drop the sticks onto the cymbals and drums instead of the typical whipping motion created by your wrists. Let gravity work for...

Re: Learning tunes yesterday and today

As drummers, we are spoiled today. I remember when I had to order a bootleg tape to watch virgil donati play! Now you can look anything up on youtube and it's there. Lessons, drummers, concerts,...

Re: Maroon 5 - I gotta vent

Re: criticize my technique #3

Re: In defence of multiple toms.

I think the idea is that less drums can make you more creative because there are less "drum" possibilities, so you have to use your mind and skills to come up with more mental things. I understand...

Re: Playing as loud as possible? Yay or nay?

Dynamics are one of the most important disciplines in drumming, and also one of the most overlooked areas. Drums are a musical instrument after all, and if you don't treat it as one, it won't sound...

Re: In defence of multiple toms.

My philosophy is that whatever makes you happy! Drums are, after all, supposed to be fun to play. If you play a certain style and it requires more or less, then there you go. There is no right or...

Re: Andrew WK to break drum record! 24-hours traight

So what qualifies as playing drums? I mean, can he get tired and just sit there and tap a tom lightly? Or does he have to play a beat constantly without pause? What are the rules to the record?
