Re: My bizarre, ego-destroying experience

Give yourself credit where it's due - it's just as important to work on being a good person as a good musician, and you took his advice without being uptight about it. I've watched some pros handle...

Re: Hit like a girl

I admittedly don't know anything about the competition, but I don't mind the idea of a competition for females if it encourages more females to play and publicises that there are already a lot of...

Re: Shuffles

Thanks for all these great posts and for contributing to this resurrection! There's a lot here, I haven't tried it all out just yet, but have just started playing with a blues guitar-trio so I'll be...

Re: Shuffles

Hey, I'm hoping to resurrect this thread :)

Does anyone know of a comprehensive list where we can learn more about the different blues shuffles? I vaguely know what to play for a Texas or Chicago...

Re: Has anyone conquered Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual?

Hey, here's what I did to learn it. (I also supposedly have ADD and I wondered the same as you as it took years, but at the end of the day it doesn't really matter.. I've got it down now, and I'm...

Re: Transcribing - love it or hate it?

Not in such words, but the idea is to choose a piece of music that really speaks out to you in the first place - something where you feel "I wish I could play like that", and then just really go into...

Re: Transcribing - love it or hate it?

It probably varies from drummer to drummer. I think charting out tunes to be able to play them with bands is also really useful, but I'd probably see that as different from transcribing something in...

Transcribing - love it or hate it?

Hi all, just wondering what you think of the practice of transcribing other musicians. I've heard some people say that they don't like it as they'd rather develop their own style, and others who...

Re: Ari Hoenig Systems

Yeah I had that realisation with Art Blakey.. it was such a good moment! I haven't spent so much time on the other guys yet (but am on the case!). I'd been practicing a few Art Blakey tunes for a...

Re: Alan Dawson further advice?

That's a good one John, I'm glad you said that. I've been doing some konokol recently and trading exercises with a bassist and I noticed that exercises when displaced to only fall on off-beats are...

Re: Alan Dawson further advice?

So nice to see that this thread has been revived. It's 4 years later now and I'm actually living in America and getting lessons with John Ramsay at Alan's old studio in Lexington - I don't think I...

Re: Tony Williams ride cymbal technique

WhoIsTony? thanks for explaining the 4-stroke, I'm going to give the 4 and 5-strokes a bash.. am currently changing my whole ride technique (which is kinda tough after a few years now of swinging in...

Re: Tony Williams ride cymbal technique

Am I the only one that thinks there's a slight difference between Tony's and John Riley's? It looks like the very first stroke comes from Tony's arm/wrist (moeller style), then drop from the wrist...

Re: Tony Williams ride cymbal technique

In the slow motion video it looks like Tony is doing a 3-step movement for the normal swing (sprang-a-lang) phrases... first a moeller stroke, then a further drop from the wrist, then a catch from...

Tony Williams ride cymbal technique

Hi all, I've been working on ride cymbal technique using moeller motion, and my teacher has given me something similar (but not quite the same) as Tony Williams uses in this video to practice (thanks...

Re: Providing the time

These are all valid points, and are the type of different perspectives I need to hear from other drummers. I'm playing in more varied scenarios just now than I've been in before, and suppose my aim...

Re: Providing the time

Just an update on this.. I've been finding that with a strong bassist none of this stuff really matters, it's not so easy to get swayed by rogue horn players, and if they've got good time then...

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

It probably is a good idea to be well informed before buying any product in general, so that you can get what suits you best. But gear is the least of my worries, it's learning how to play the stuff!

Re: Providing the time

Glad I brought this up, there are some really good points here! Recording is something I'd do with an actual band, and we'd be more open to dialogue about these things too. I'm mostly thinking in a...

Hi all,

I'm mostly asking this from the perspective of playing with jazz combos and big bands... but this really applies to all genres. You know the feeling when you're playing with a really...

I went to a Jojo Mayer clinic in Edinburgh a few years ago, and also another one in England somewhere just outside of London. I'd been working on moeller motion daily from his dvd and had a question...
