Re: Is this a good drum book?

A double paradiddle isn't a paradiddle, otherwise it wouldn't be a separate rudiment. I guess being correct or admitting wrong isn't that important to you. Technically, a U and W are the same...

Re: Is this a good drum book?

Did you look through it at all? The first page I open to are double paradiddles and paradiddle-diddles

Re: Am I a bad drummer?

This, exactly.

But the reality is, does it matter what others think? If you want to excel, you have to go above and beyond. Discipline, practice, playing with others...it's not something I was...

Re: My Guitar Center Experience

I would never sell to GC, or anyone like that, unless the gear being offered was not very desirable.

Re: My Guitar Center Experience

I didn't expect the world; sold some VG 00's Pearl Exports (5pc 10 12 13 16 22), Zildjian EAK 22" that I bought/sold for a good price; and a previously well-broken in, keyholed but sturdy 18" 60's A...

My Guitar Center Experience

Was an A. I was impressed with our local GC's service.

Sold gear, cymbals / inexpensive drums, not an unfair offer, easy and peaceful.

There will be a 22" EAK Zildjian ride showing up soon...

Re: Being impressed vs being moved

i don't know, many drummers and players "move me"

But that is that certain extra something, a few players have, that is not necessarily a technical or chop/skill thing, but adds layers and...

Re: Hard hitting, staying relaxed?

The main thing for me was learning to hit hard, but also having the reflexes to release that tension after a stroke, to eliminate that shockwave of energy transferring to the hands and arms - no pain...

Re: Why are floor tom legs so long?

The floor tom legs on my 50's Leedy are basically too short, I extend them all the way and it's barely high enough, if I am sitting rather low. Also must keep it rather flat.

Re: What is the name of this specific fill/pattern?

isn't the swiss army triplet just an inverted flam accent? I think that's what I meant but 5am posting and lack of coffee usually wins. Could be wrong.

Either way I've been out of the loop...

Re: What is the name of this specific fill/pattern?

you mean the "blushda"? that's like an inverted swiss army triplet, with one extra note - rL r l becomes rL rr l. there's quite a few youtube videos explaining how to, and where to go with it....

Re: EUREKA! Problem solved!

Not sure if this is apples to apples, but my LM400 is far easier to tune and get sounding good than my 5x14 DW maple ever was. HOWEVER that drum sounded great when tuned to my liking. It wasn't...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta

A co-worker and guitar player saw Herbie Hancock w/ Vinnie at the Boston Orpheum last week, I think it was Thursday. I was pretty jealous!...was a great show.

Re: Dave Abbruzzese

I always thought DA was too "splashy". Not to say he's not a great drummer. I was never a Pearl Jam fan in the 90's when everyone in my HS was. But his drumming is definitely great, great player,...

Re: Drum auditions

Not impossible that they already had a drummer in mind, but were auditioning more as a formality or "just in case" they find a better fit. I have had that happen.

Re: I am about to buy an electronic drum kit. Which should I go for?

i have had a Roland TD-12 for around 10 years and it's been awesome. However, I bought it new and spent a small fortune on it and various upgrades. My suggestion is to find a higher quality, great...

Re: Starting all over again - what would you buy?

Re: Aluminium snares

I am suspicious of a major inherent flaw, comparing DIFFERENT drums and tuning them all the same, with the same heads, wires and drummer, room etc. How you can be sure that each drum was prepared,...

Re: Nerve issue

It might be time to take a few weeks, or even a few months off. And beyond that, maybe addressing your posture, technique and etc. with another set of eyes (instructor?)

"Everything is negotiable" I think if you begin with that in mind, things usually work out more smoothly.
