Has anyone else had wrist/elbow problems from using French grip on the hi-hat?

I used to primarily use German grip for just about everything. About two months ago I decided to try using French and American grip around the kit and I ended up finding the French grip much easier...

Re: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - What it is and how to prevent it

So basically you have to play exclusively in German grip if you don't want CTS?

Why is Bonham's pedal work in 'Good Times Bad Times' so revered?

I mean no disrespect to the great Bonzo, but I get kind of annoyed by how people have to act like every thing he did, even seemingly simple things, were not of this earth. People always seem to cite...

Re: Need help with shuffle technique on hi-hat for Sublime's Santeria.

So when you play the shuffle using this technique, are you playing all stroke on the top of the hi-hat? Or do you play the accents on the side of the hi-hat? I'm just trying to think of how exactly...

Re: Naming your kit - can you, would you, do you?

Considering I don't have kids yet, I look at my drums as my children. Therefore it's fine for me to name them, in fact it would be weird not to.

And when I actually do end up having kids it might...

Re: Practice it until it "feels good."

The muscle memory thing is such a key concept in drumming. Don't believe me? Look at my signature! When I first started out, I had no clue about it. I just figured any time I saw some drummer play...

Re: Need help with shuffle technique on hi-hat for Sublime's Santeria.

Well the interesting thing is that in Santeria he actually omits the hi-hat notes on the 2 and 4 (I found this out by watching the music video and confirmed it by listening closely). I never...

Need help with shuffle technique on hi-hat for Sublime's Santeria.

Here's the song for those unfamiliar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LTCyZvb2Uzw)

I can play the shuffle on the hi-hat at slower speeds no problem, but playing it at this song's tempo is hard for...

Best way to sell cymbals that have never been used?

I bought some cymbals about 6 years ago. Tried them for literally about 30 minutes before I realized I did not like them. I was going to return them but I found out too late that the return policy...

Is there such a thing as a 'drum jam'? Something where just drummers get together and groove?

And perhaps trade fills or solos? I wish I knew some other drummers because I would love to do something like this. No other instruments needed, just making music with the drums together with fellow...

Re: Tips on looking more lively and energetic while playing?

I'm with you on the stick twirls. I've always found them obnoxious. By showmanship I just mean being more animated, as is appropriate for the music. Just so you don't look robotic and bored up there....

Re: Tips on looking more lively and energetic while playing?

OP here. Thanks for all the advice, everyone.

This turned out to be a pretty interesting discussion actually. Showmanship is definitely a part of playing live drums, but I agree that it should...

Re: Tips on looking more lively and energetic while playing?

I definitely agree about forced energy. But I still think you can work on letting yourself show through your body language how you really feel while you're playing. Not faking, but just playing up a...

Tips on looking more lively and energetic while playing?

I'm going to be playing my first gig in about a month. I recently videotaped myself playing and noticed that I do not look nearly as energetic as I feel when I'm drumming. In my head I look like I'm...

Best way to go about selling cymbals? If I put them on craigslist, should I put a set price?

And how do I figure out what that price should be? Or should I do something like give them to the best offer? Also, should I sell them individually? I have a full cymbal set (all the same brand and...

When learning songs, do you actually memorize the number of bars in each part, or do you go by feel?

I just joined a cover band (my first band) so I'm trying to learn a bunch of new songs. So far, my strategy has just been to listen to the songs over and over again until I just know all the lengths...

Re: Can we start a list of well-known studio recordings that have sloppy drumming in them?

I'm completely with you. I hate the sterile/programmed sounding drumming. But I think it's silly to think you need to have mistakes or sloppiness in order to introduce a human element to a drum...

Re: Can we start a list of well-known studio recordings that have sloppy drumming in them?

Listen to how close together those two snare hits sound compared to the two snare hits on the "and" and "a" of 2.

Here it is again so you can hear it:...

Are there any tips or tricks to recalling the tempo of a song when you count your band in?

I'm new to playing with a band and they've had my count in a few songs. So far I've had to take a few seconds each time to hear the song in my head and then I try to click my sticks to that tempo. A...

I don't understand how some drummers let some of their tracks get finalized on studio albums when there are obvious (maybe only to other drummers, but still) mistakes and/or sloppiness. I would...

Re: How rare is it to find a band that has a practice space with a kit for you to use? Advice needed

Thanks. Well here's the situation, tell me what you think. Their name (which I didn't know until after I had auditioned and practiced with them a few times) is something I would be embarrassed and...

How rare is it to find a band that has a practice space with a kit for you to use? Advice needed.

I "joined" a cover band a few weeks ago and it's a good situation in that they have their own practice space and their own drum set there for me to use so I don't have to lug mine back and forth each...

What should I focus on in order to become more fluid (and less stiff) in the hands/wrists/arms?

One thing that really sticks out to me about certain drummers beyond just how they sound, is how fluid they look when they play. Chad Smith is a great example of this. Look how fluid his right...
