Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Yeah, a closer shot would be great. BTW, I love how tight you've got your kit set up. Everything is close and easily reached. What size bass is that?

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Who makes those, and what are they called? I take it there is no direct contact with the cymbal?

Re: How do I get out of the "drumming blues"?

I think a lot of musicians I know get "the blues" from time to time when they compare themselves with others who they feel are better than they are. If your goal is to be THE BEST, you will always...

Re: Double Pedal

I play heal up, mostly.... Thanks for the input.

Notation

Does anyone have a sheet they can share that has hand-written drum notation? I'd love to see how someone else writes out various beats...16ths, rests, etc. Mine looks like chicken scratch,...

Double Pedal

I've been a single pedal guy for 35 years, and I'm debating trying a double pedal. I'm interested in people's thoughts and experience with going to the double pedal. Does it take a long time to get...

Re: Cause of Meter Speeding Up Discovered.

Your body (i.e. mind) has to get used to how long it takes to get from one surface to another, just like it has to learn timing when you play ghost notes and accents. Practice with the metronome did...

Re: Stick Grip Issue

I used it on a pad for a for about a month doing mostly singles and doubles. It helped a lot.

I'm really surprised it's not popular because the weak hand grip is a such common problem.

Let me...

Re: Stick Grip Issue

Indeed, I am.

I, too, had a somewhat "wobbly" left hand at higher tempos. Somehow, somewhere, I read about the hinged sticks and figured "what the hell." (I think it was a review coming out of...

Looking for teacher in Boston area....

Unfortunately, practicing two hours a day on a pad (and moongel pad) has started to take a toll. I'm developing tennis elbow. It's not bad, but I fear it will only get worse if I continue doing what...

Re: Musicality

I would say musicality is whatever moves or resonates with a person. And I think that it's completely subjective. Like beauty, it's in the eye of the beholder.

If I play something and I find it...

Re: Do you hear sounds or mechanics when you play?

I think I know exactly what you are talking about. I constantly experience it myself.

If you only practice the pattern in one way, i.e. one sound source, or one dynamic, or while eating a...

Relationship between members of the band

I play in a band that plays primarily originals written by "Mike," one of our guitarists. We will be recording a CD of originals this summer. So far, we have shared all common expenses of the band...

"That Great Gretsch Sound...."

What exactly is that?

I'm considering the Renown Maple for use as a rock kit...10, 12, 14, 16, 20

Anyone own one? What else should I consider?
