Re: True speed vs implied speed

Tim, I'm going to make a clip and post it here in a bit. Accuracy is key. The faster you go the harder this becomes. This is a large part of what makes single strokes so fascinating to me. Emphasis...

Re: knee pain from swivel technique

You really shouldn't be in pain here. Especially if you haven't even been working with it very long. Stop, assess your own swivel, study a few clips of different drummers demonstrating it, and figure...

Re: What is the average speed for....

The average drummer would score around 700-750 singles BPM on a drumometer (best guess). Some score much higher. I'm the unofficial champion at the moment with a score 1,329 singles in one minute and...

Re: Your Favorite singing drummer.

Shoot, Stewart Copeland is one my favorite drummers period. Can't believe I failed to think of him here. If I had to pick one I'd still go with Levon in terms of singing drummers. "Pulled in to...

Re: Endurance and Speed

First thing to do is get a drumometer. Establish where you're at with each hand. Let's say you're right hand is playing sixteenths at quarter note = 110 bpm for a while and you're left hand can only...

Re: Couple questions concerning hand technique

lol Did someone say speed? Yes! Jojo's DVD is a great start. I recommend developing good individual hand speed with whatever more conventional technique you're comfortable with (finger control, wrist...

Re: Dual snare throwoffs

The super sensitive is a dual throw off operated by one lever. It's really brilliant in that regard. And as I said earlier, it has two straining or tensioning knobs and no butt plates (not even on...

Re: What Would _____ Do?

So true and well put. It's all about enhancing your own musical vocabulary. However, there are some patented licks and grooves I can't help but replicate. For example, the Motown intro fill, Billy...

Re: Opinion on Stick Grip-by T. Bruce Wittet

Re: Opinion on Stick Grip-by T. Bruce Wittet

There are so many great drummers with different takes on grip. I like the notion of 'how not to grip a stick' as oppose to 'how to grip a stick.' IMO, to each his own. As long as you're not hurting...

Re: Dual snare throwoffs

The super sensitive strainer on my Black Beauty is a dual strainer, not a dual throwoff. Only has one throwoff but two strainer knobs. I absolutely love it and it is the only snare out of my...

Re: Dream Theater's new drummer

Good stuff, Matt. I had an inkling all along Mangini would take the gig. I felt it was his to take. He's a great match for the gig. Just curious if you were ever a big DT fan? When I was in middle...

Re: What is the use of double braced hardware?

Re: How is your bass drum positioned?

Excellent question! I have learned a few things about this over the years. First of all, I believe it is important to make sure your bass drum is level (yes, use a level). I could make a video...
