Re: Hey Gretsch experts...

It doesn't have any paper tag inside; just the silver sealer.

I doubt it's a vintage snare as it doesn't look all that old. I'm out of town right now and can't take a picture of it. However,...

Hey Gretsch experts...

I'm looking at a Gretsch snare to possibly add to the arsenal.

I'm not too familiar with all the lines/history of Gretsch so I'm hoping you all can help.

The snare is a 10 lug maple that looks...

Re: The constantly changing drum room

Other than being set up backwards, those kits look really nice. ;-)

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

I just posted something similar when we were discusssing this a while back. IME, singers have the absolute worst timing, especially church singers.

At the church I used to go to (just recently...

Re: Brush comping question

I think I understand your question. Brushes are indeed difficult to articulate into words.

I sort of do both techniques you describe. A lot of the times, my comping "accents" fit within the side...

Re: Some Fine Blues Drumming early 60s

If I had to guess, I would say S.P Leary. It sort of looks like him.

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

1. How many bands are you in? 2. A jazz quartet/trio called "Livin' Easy" and a blues band, "Lou Deluca & The Delta 88's" Here's a random sampling of a gig the blues band did earlier in the year. ...

Re: Looking for Jazz solos in 3/4 to transcribe

Max Roach actually did an entire record all in 3/4. It was called, uniquely enough, "Jazz in 3/4 Time".

Re: most minimalist kit I've seen!

When he was with us, Max didn't have any trouble at all getting gigs.

Re: What I Learned From Roy Burns 40-Years Ago

Thanks for sharing this.

Roy Burns is a criminally underrated drummer; personally and professionally. I don't think he get's nearly the attention he deserves.

I have had the pleasure of...

Re: worth it?

That was my first thought too.

But if I was going on tour where there was a possibility of others playing my kit, or I wasn't sure of how well my kit would be handled between gigs, I would...

Re: Practicing on a Pillow

I've practiced on a pillow a few times. An old teacher of mine used to have me do that. I never really saw much improvement that I could relate directly to playing on a pillow.

Re: Playing Hihat through breaks

As Larry said, the answer is "both". It totally depends. I do either one; whatever the song calls for.

Re: The side snare

Here's a video of Ryan Hoyle, one-time Collective Soul drummer, using one on "Run".

Re: The side snare

I've always kind of wondered that too actually. I think the "cross stick" sounded a little muted for a cross stick, and seemed at bit high pitched to be that particular snare though. I could be...

Re: The side snare

Here's Steve Jordan doing it on the John Scofield tribute to Ray Charles record.

About halfway through the tune you can hear Steve switch to a much fatter, muffled snare.

Re: I highly recommend this book...and not only to jazz drummers

So how much is this book anyway? I tried to call the shops the other day and they were closed at the time.

I would love to get a copy. Would also love to see a Max Roach version...

Exactly. This is my take on it too.

Say you are playing a jazz shuffle; jazz ride pattern on the ride, shuffling on the snare, quarter notes on the bass, 2 & 4 on the hats. Nothing really...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

I use wingnuts but no top felts.

Honestly, I can't hear that much of a difference with or without. Maybe if I'm right on it I can hear a bit more sustain without the felt, but it doesn't matter...

That's similar to what I have in the upstairs practice room.

I have my old electronic kit set up with my practice pad and real hi-hat. Plus a couple cymbals with mutes on them. It's not quite...

Re: Auditioning for a New Orleans jazz/funk/etc. band

First and foremost, other musos want a good groove from us. A solo is just icing on the cake.

Check out masters like Earl Palmer, Herlin Riley, Johnny Vidacovich, Stanton Moore, and others to get...
