Re: Double bass flams!

Derek Roddy has some great double bass exercises on you tube. He has you work each foot individually then both together. Do these for a month and everything should even out (hopefully).

Re: Sonor Force 3007

Both Gavin Harrison and Derek Roddy play Sonor drums. Although they both play the SQ2 models. Still, two great drummers if you're looking for a Sonor endorsement. As a side note, I had an older Sonor...

Re: The 1 tune that defines death metal?

Play him some Nile and tell him to watch George Kollias. That should be a pretty good definition for good ole Abe.

Re: Triplets on a double pedal!

I would just say practice, practice, practice. I've found that (for me) playing triplets at faster tempos is easier, and for some reason smoother sounding. That's why I've been working on playing...

Re: Regret (a confession)

This is a great topic, like many of the previous posts, I find myself attempting to pursue a music career once again (age 34). I'm fortunate to have a teaching job and I don't have to work for 12...

Re: Doublebass Speed

I know this is somewhat cliche, but everyone progresses at different speeds. Concentrate on meeting the goals that you set for yourself and try not to worry too much about what the other guy is...

Re: Drumless Tracks.

There are CD's you can order called Turn it up Lay it Down They have all sorts of musical styles and they're really good to play along to. They're about $12 per cd. I have a couple and they work well.

Re: Metallers ahoy!

That's the book. It's helped me out by just giving me ideas. This is the first project I've played in where blasting was a part of the music, so it's helped me alot. The cd moves pretty quickly, but...

Re: Metallers ahoy!

I've been experimenting with 32nd notes while blasting (basically playing doubles with my feet) and it's still in the chaotic stage, but find what you think works / sounds the best and take the...

Re: image - any of you guys think its important to look good on stage?

I think much of the image argument can sometimes correspond with the type of music and general age group of your audience. I'm 34 and play metal, and (unfortunately) my ability to grow long, flowing...

Re: Yamaha Maple Custom

I just bought one used on Ebay and I've had it only a couple of weeks. The 22" bass drum absolutely booms and the toms sound very warm and can hold multiple tuning ranges. I upgraded from an Export...

Re: thoughts about my technique and joining a band soon

I was in a similar situation as you (I'm 34). The music I'm playing is a mix of all things metal, which includes some blasting (not too much though). Join a band and be upfront that you're really...

Re: double strokes on bass drum!!!!

Play a basic beat: i.e. 8th note hands with snare on 2 and 4. Play 16ths with your feet (1e+a 2e+a 3e+a 4e+a). Play double strokes (32nd notes) on 3. Try this until you get a good roll on 3, then...

Re: Older Yamaha Maple Custom

Thanks for the input. I bought them for $1200 with free shipping. I think this will give me the most "bang for my buck" so to speak. This will be a giant leap forward from my Pearl Export that I've...

Older Yamaha Maple Custom

I have a chance to purchase an older set of Yamaha Maple Custom Absolutes with the black interior shells. I'm paying $1300 for them. I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding the...

Re: Double Bass Help

Something that worked for me is to try to match your hands to your feet. In other words, each time your right hand hits, your right foot hits; this should help keep your feet in line. I too have the...
