Re: How did you start getting "loose" on difficult fills?

Learning to play more dynamically helped me loosen up and move more naturally and efficiently, and just plain sound better.

Re: Double bass frustration

That blows my mind. I can play 16ths comfortably up to 260, but start to strain on single foot 1/8 notes above 200.
Apparently I've developed a more efficient ankle motion on double bass, whereas...

Re: Double bass frustration

Believe me I've been there. My first two years learning DB were so frustrating. Like you said one day it's great then the next day seemed like I had made no progress at all. It all really came down...

Re: Questions for metal drummers on the forum

Concentrate on quarter notes or 8th notes rather than straining to focus on listening to the 16ths or 32nds.
Not only does this make "hearing fast" easier, but for me it also actually physically...

Re: At which point do polyrhythms stop sounding cool and start sounding academic?

I just don't like to listen to it for an entire song. Particularly in metal and hard rock, because (for me) there HAS to be a relatively straight forward groove at some point.

Re: Kick Technique - Pedal, Throne Height and Footware

How long have you been playing? For my first couple of years, the slightest difference in my seating position and pedal settings would affect my playing. Once I developed my pedal technique enough...

Re: Practicing too much double bass?

There are techniques like these for feet. I just don't know if there's a way to teach them. Your legs (or brain) eventually adapt to extreme speed by incorporating Moeller type movements, so that...

Re: Sorry Neil......Ringo and Paul has much more "feel" than you

I've tried improvising to Rush songs in the past. If I try to get all feely and swingy, it just doesn't fit. Just like trying to put really good drumming to Beatles songs.

Ringo's drumming isn't...

Re: Can't consistently hit max bpms

What hand technique are you using at high speeds? That technique should not only facilitate speed, but also help you play relaxed.

Also (just my opinion) FIVE minutes at your max speed is...

Re: Your full name on your bass drum head

In the 60s and 70s so many drummers were pioneers. Regardless of how technically talented they were, much of the time they were doing something original and timeless. In light of this, their names...

Re: Double bass practice issue

Swiveling stresses the knees if the motion is too far from side to side.




I would practice at about 180 bpm instead of 200 (for now). For me, that's about 30 bpm above the point where I...

Re: Double Bass Shuffle: Left or Right foot lead

Too much grip doesn't allow me to adjust position on the foot board without making a conscious effort to do so. This contributes to fatigue and can lower your performance ceiling. However I also...

Re: Double bass shuffle: left or right foot lead?

I'm fast with my feet, but for that beat I would use both kicks because of the emphasis on the second note of each double. No way someone's gonna pull that off with one foot for that length of time...

Re: Rack Toms Angled or Flat

It makes sense if the toms are very low. And yes I happen to think it's looks great too. I guess I'm attracted to the symmetrical look?
But I think Simon Phillips, for example, mounts his toms too...

Re: Am I the only one who plays Quads like this

I don't ever do those with a left foot lead but, I think it's important to learn to lead with either hand to increase your options around the kit.

For example snare-tom1-kick-kick would be right...

Re: Where Do You Position Your Beater

More or less centered, usually just above center, never below. Determined more by feel than any particular sound.

Re: Can A Metal Drummer Play A Pop Song Well?

It's unfortunate that so much of their music was very "pop metal" but they were definately a heavy metal band fom late 70s to about '81. The Animal Magnetism album rocks.

Re: Can A Metal Drummer Play A Pop Song Well?

LOL
It could be argued that some metal music is pop. But to call all metal pop would require redefining both metal and pop.

Re: Lars Ulrich

I would agree that's what makes one a good drummer. But then from there, there are infinite levels of better.

Re: Can A Metal Drummer Play A Pop Song Well?

I don't believe this at all.

Maybe a well educated musician can learn to play anything. But being well educated won't make you able to pick up the sticks and play any style, any more than having...

Re: Would you join a band for popularity?

For popularity, no. For recognition, yes. For money, yes.
