Re: How to contact Ludwig?

You could try their parent company, Conn Selmer: http://www.conn-selmer.com/en-us/about/customer-service/

Re: Why bother with books?

That's what people selling computer hardware keep telling me, but increasingly I think they're completely FOS. I think they just want me to spend my money on their products, and not on books. It's...

Re: Why bother with books?

I don't disagree with that, except you can get by with even less than that in actual playing. But, yeah, you can do virtually everything you need with Syncopation, and usually that's the best way to...

Re: Rodney Holmes & Paul Gilbert - Synchronicity - Time Signature or groove name?

I'd call that 3/4; or you could count it in 6. The style doesn't really have a name-- you could call it a funky jazz waltz, or a jazzy funk waltz. Though we try to stay away from the word "jazzy"...

Re: Yamaha Recording Customs - Help!!

Far out, now just keep your eye out for an orphaned PB bass drum in the size you want, and you'll have the most killer drum set you'll ever need. I did a recording on some beat-to-death YRCs rented...

Re: So should you never bounce doubles?

There are a lot of different ways people do it. The main thing is to work on it a lot, and adjust and adapt as you figure out what works for you. See how fast you can get playing both notes, and then...

Re: BPM question

Good question. Cut time is the same as a time signature of 2/2: two half notes per measure. Which basically looks the same as 4/4, but it's felt with two beats per measure, on the 1 and 3 (that's...

Re: My final jazz drum set. Is it good? Anything i can improve on?

Well, those ZBTs are not going to cut it. Personally, I would start over by getting some good cymbals, and then get whatever drums you can afford with what's left over. If you get used drums, you'll...

Re: BPM question

The Lemonheads version has a stronger four feel than the original, so I'd call it 4/4@216. The Simon & Garfunkel version (https://youtu.be/9C1BCAgu2I8) has a stronger half note pulse, and I'd call it...

Re: Frankie Dunlop: Gene Krupa's Kindness to an Upcoming Drummer

Another great, invaluable piece. Is there another interview anywhere of Dunlop talking about playing the drums? I don't think there is.

Re: Interesting minimalist style...

I would dig some minimal drumming on that track.

Re: How to naturally play quieter?

Do you really need to play quieter, or do you just need to stop breaking your equipment? If you're playing grunge, I would think you still want to get a big sound and project a lot of energy, even if...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

Well, it's the result of trolling-- a style of argument people who don't know anything use to wind up people who do know something. That's what's been happening here.

Re: Gretsch Renown 18" or 20" bass drum

I think you'll be happy with the 18-- it's easier to schlep, it blends nicely with the other drums, and it does actually make your job a whole lot easier when you have to play really quiet. They're...

Re: Playing over the bar line.

That's something I do a lot, and it didn't really come from anything I practiced, it came from listening. If you check out what drummers, pianists, and guitar players do in the first measure of the...

Re: Ed Soph: Knowing the Reasons

That's a very cool quote. I haven't hung out with Conrade much, but I did learn a lot in a ten minute conversation with him ~15 years ago.

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

You're all over the place, man, and I'm not going to try to keep up. I dig that you are on fire for this topic, though. For some reason. Good luck with your crusade.

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

I thought the adjective "all-consuming" made it clear that we're not talking about it on the level of "I hate Tofurkey."



...and formula is often referred to, correctly, as the opposite of...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

You and I differ sharply here. Including virulent, primitive racists, and participants in genocide as just other partners of the community of man is highly strange-- I'm not sure whether we call that...

Re: Brookmeyer: Jazz is One Human Being Talking to Others

Brookmeyer was a jazz musician. I don't think he was excluding other kinds of music.

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

It's openly fascist, and participating in actual genocide, but at least it has an audience? That's a very disturbing comment, Pol. This whole thread is creeping me out, actually.

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

Hate as a creative emotion is a major tenet of fascism, so I'm wary of people defending it in the arts. If you want to talk about angst or political rage, fine, those are different things-- and it's...

Re: Other than practice- quickest way to improve?

The way anyone learns to play is to listen a lot, play with people a lot, and practice a lot.

Re: seven stroke roll notation

I think there are quite a few pieces in Wilcoxon (and in Haskell Harr) where that same 8th note-value roll is indicated as a 5 or as a 7 within the same piece-- normally I play those as either 16th...
