Re: Open Handed Drumming

I'm also pretty new, but I like to practice left foot kick and left hand keeping time sometimes just for the coordination and help get my left half up to speed. I'm hard pressed to get those 16th...

Re: Does adding this Tom make sense?

My I piggy back here and ask almost the same question, as a relative newbie with an e-kit?

It's my understanding that the sound comes from resonating heads, and bigger heads at the same tension...

Re: Can you be a good drummer with bad math skills?

I would argue that there are quite many people who don't know much math, or don't like math, yet have a mind that can understand math.

For me, that thing that causes me to be good at math is...

Re: Beginner question regarding foot pedals

Does a "basic e kit" not have foot pedals?

I've only been at it a year now, but I find it very helpful to have foot pedals. I already feel it's too easy to neglect or forget about the feet.

Re: Help with French grip technique

I personally often switch from a more overhand grip to french grip for the ride for a couple reasons:

Re: Hi-Hat Adjustment

So far I like em about 3/4" or so, enough that they don't touch when open unless I really lay into it. But for some reason it annoys me to have a huge range (like the 1.5" a couple said). I'm sure...

Re: Accent on second stroke doubles technique question

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

Dotted quarter 32nds at 93 is 1116 per minute, slightly less than quarter 32nds at 140. (12/32 = 3/8, 12x93=1116)
And that pad is hella bouncy.

Re: Is it acceptable to audition for multiple groups/bands?

Well, yeah, but willing to accept under the right circumstances. One can go in knowing that they might not accept as long as they also might accept.

Re: Do You Drum While Not Drumming?

I've been doing this for years, if not decades, and I've only been drumming 6 months.
The real drumming only makes the habit worse (or better, one could argue).
