Re: Top 5 Metal Snares

Keplinger snares are great. When Gregg worked with Ayotte, those snares had the option of standard steel or wood hoops. Here's a review that describes the sound,...

Re: Best Drum Pad For A Beginner...?

Go for a 12" HQ Real Feel and set it up on a snare drum stand. That's a combo that can position easily and handle all dynamic levels of playing.

Re: muddled up going around the kit.

Hey palo - this is a great question! IMO the trick is to get more ''right-brain'' when you're getting into improvising.
The great drummer, Billy Ward has a concept he calls ''practice/playing'' ...

Re: What's the best pedal technique study?

Definitely Stick Control! And not just the first 3 pages!
I really like Dom Famularo's book, Pedal Control. He breaks down a variety of basic techniques and gives good exercises.

Re: Weird hands, nature or nurture!

Ok! well as long as you're not in any pain, or your grip isn't holding you back in any way, don't worry, be happy :-)

Re: Weird hands, nature or nurture!

The grip I always teach is as natural as possible - I let one's hands dictate how the stick is held. I learned this from Dom Famularo - since you're in London, I'd suggest a Skype lesson with Dom -...

Re: Top tips before recording!?

I can't say that I really psyche myself up or pump myself up on the day, or right before a take. But leading up, I try to do my homework - practice the tunes from memory with a click, play along...

Re: Question about beater buzz.

I had the buzz problem so - I learned how to let the beater come off of the head :-)
You can still play heel up and not bury the beater - letting those heads resonate on a 26 would sound great!

Re: Let's Discuss Sticking Methods

Early on, I used natural sticking to organize my technique and understand rhythms better. But I also flipped it around and led with my left. Then the last step was to throw it all away...

Re: Double bass practice idea?

It always makes sense to exert less effort. You can play heel toe if you want to, especially if you have it down with your dominant foot. But if you're asking how to build up strength - learning...

Re: Double bass practice idea?

There's only one height that you should use, and that's the most comfortable one. Once you find that height, don't change it!

If you want to build strength, start by playing heels down first and...

Re: Structuring Practice for Beginners?

IMO your best online investment would be to Skype some lessons with Dom Famularo. He will set you in a great direction - with your motivation and his teaching - you'll be in a very good place!

Re: Structuring Practice for Beginners?

Spend some time working on your hands and feet. Especially if you're saying that your technique is sloppy. Here are a couple things to start off your practice schedule.

Re: How do you characterize the sound of steel?

The only true, steel snares I've played have been my Dunnett and Keplinger drums. It's kind of hard to compare the sound to brass, copper and aluminum drums that I've had, because both of these...
