Re: Methods for feeling or visualizing time?

I have a tendency to play ahead of the beats. This makes the entire band rush because everyone else listens to the drums as the centre.

Recently, I started to visual the clicks or the beats not as...

Re: Exercises to hit the 'middle' of a beat?

Hi Dr Watso,

I noticed recently when I recorded myself playing a pop/soft-rock song, I played the backbeats slightly in front of the rest of my other limbs. It's at the "macro level". When I...

Q: Practice trading 4 and 12 bars blue


If I practice trading 4 with 12 bars blue: 4 bars of time, 4 bars of solo, what do I do to the last 4 bars?

Mic'n: Rock/Pop vs Jazz

Will you mic a kit for jazz differently than a kit for rock/pop?

I'm asking because in rock/pop, the kick and snare dominate. Not so in jazz.

Re: Do you record yourself daily when practicing?

Question to you all:

Recording and listening back to the audios is straightforward and I do this from time to time.

But, how do you streamline the viewing of the videos to check your posture...

Re: Recording drums and music through a zoom q3hd using Roland TD-6V

You misread the labels on your module. In the very first photo you posted, ignore the top row of text. Read the 2nd row: "phone" and "mix in". (The "MIDI IN" and "MIDI OUT/THRU" are referring the 2...

Re: Problem with an off-beat groove

Hi Brian,

Sorry that I didn't explain it clearly.

I don't have problem to play syncopated kicks or place the kicks on the off-beats. I can play this perfect to a metronome. My problem is with...

Problem with an off-beat groove

I've been practicing this Trinity College grade 3 exam piece for months. But there is this off-beat groove that I couldn't get the drums to lock in. Here is a vid I found on youtube:

Opinions needed on recording technique/equipment in my garage (with audio files)

Hi all,

I'm green in home recording. I used to just use a Zoom Q3HD to record my own practice. I've recently acquired a pair of AKG P170 mics (as part of their Groove Pack). I'm trying out a mic...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom $899 vs Shell pack $650

Slightly off topic.

I don't understand why Stage Custom comes with single-braced hardware while GigMaker double-braced hardware. At least in Australia.

Re: Hi-Hat Stepping (Lift & Close on every beat)

It took me years to be comfortable to play constant HH quarter notes with the foot.

It just takes practice, and practice really slow. e.g. 40 bpm

Add one limb at a time.

Re: Intros and fills....argh!!!!

You are not alone. I reckon it's a left-brain/right-brain thing.

Re: Snare: Replacing Yamaha Birch SC Snare with Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare?
