Re: Your practice time...pleasure to work ratio

Recently I have put a ton of effort in to making sure my fingers are really being utilized every stroke and less wrist. It has increased my speed and isn't as hard on the limbs. I agree though. Once...

Re: Band give aways /Burner sticks

I endorse Los Cabos so I get a bit of a discount which takes the sting out. But they are still not free and I don't like to toss my money away.

I tend to toss the ones that are chopped up, worn...

Re: Your practice time...pleasure to work ratio

Playing to recordings is rehearsing. I take the stuff I learn when I practice and use it here. I spend much more time actually practicing.

Playing to music is fun. Practicing makes me better.

Re: Heel Up Technique

I use mostly my hip flexors at slow speeds. As i speed up my ankle starts to activate.

When I reach my max it's mostly ankle. after about 220 BPM I switch to heel toe.

Do what feels best. I...

Re: Mixing Brands Drums/Cymbals/Hardware

I'm like that for certain products. This is why I endorse those companies as I know I like their stuff the most.

That being said, I like them because they SOUND the best. It has nothing to do with...

Re: Pratice Pad

I have 6,8,10,14 inch pads. Larger pads are nice because they can fit right in a snare stand. Smaller pads are nice because they are portable.

In reality you should be hitting in the middle of the...

Re: When do you replace drumsticks?

At this point.

They feel different, sound different and you risk breaking one faster. Every gig I start with a fresh pair too.

Re: A different angle on tempo feels.

If you are talking the same subdivision in different bpm's maybe. but with changing subdivisions and/or modulation BPM is just a reference and has nothing to do with feel to me.

I could set the...

Re: Thought Experiment

Playing left foot on the kick is a great way to build up or left side.. or swap your kit lefty.

Re: YOUR BETTER AT BECAUSE OF DRUMS

Respecting other styles of music.

Re: Thought Experiment

To be honest not really. If you never plan to play double bass and want to improve your left foot work on the hats.

The best thing is to learn EVERY pattern you can play with keeping time on the...

Re: How much time till single stroke competency?

The faster you get the harder it is to gain a few BPM. Once you get to 210 220 etc you are fighting for even a few BPM.

This is where ergonomics matter and maintaining a relaxed feel. As soon as...

Re: What if we quantized Bonham?

Don't get me wrong, I am impressed at watching a 1 take video of a drummer with machine like precision.

I'm not a fan of the editing and quantizing to make drummers sound like robots when they...

Re: Tuning Tom Heads To The Same Pitch

I tend to tune my reso's a third or 4th above my batters. gives a nice pitch bend, full sound and a good punch.

I think you might be mistaking resonance and that more full sound you get as the...

Re: Extreme Volume

low end needs way more power and volume to cut threw. Turn down the lows and turn up the highs a bit on the bass. It will cut the mix with less volume. at the lest scoop some of the low-mids.. ...

Re: What if we quantized Bonham?

She defiantly is, and that is why this isn't the best example. She works hard to play in great time and is a beast on the kit so it's tough to judge. I do agree with the youtube videos that swap...

Re: Practice troubles

Re: Double Bass Drum Rolls still not coming together

I agree. Fixing itself naturally will happen with practice over time if you are practicing correctly, and focusing on fixing it. You can't fix a sloppy double stroke but just playing it over and...

Re: What if we quantized Bonham?

quantizing or editing by hand have their place. I have mixed and had a drummer miss some hits.. You can do a section, a fill etc. You DON"T have to quantize 100% to the grid.

Too many people...

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

I often record my bands gigs with a little gopro on the side of the stage, or sometimes we have people film us etc. It's crazy how you can feel one way in the moment, but then listen back and it's...

Re: Double Bass Drum Rolls still not coming together

It's going to take a lot longer than a week. It takes years to get "good" at double base playing.

A video always helps with this stuff. Also. How often do you practice. for how long. etc. How are...

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

I suggest everyone take even a cellphone and record them selves playing and watch it back.

The camera doesn't lie, your brain does.. ESPECIALLY when it comes to speeding up fills, or thinking you...

Re: Making a drumming video with electronic drums

Treat it as 2 separate things. Video and Audio.

For audio you need a DAW. You can record the audio out of the ekit or use a VST to get your drums sounding real. That uses the midi and works...

Re: definition of a drum lick

Licks, chops, call it what you will. They are different to everyone.

I don't learn "licks' or prewritten stuff for a few reasons though.

You learn a 16 note or 32 note chop or lick, you can...
