Re: Advice on becoming a teacher

Funny because I do want to start studying music professionally and I'm 38 y.o. (I studied and play the drums since when I was 18 y.o.)
Do you think I'm cut out from the music industry?

Hi,
I'm on the other side of the planet (Italy) and it has been a long time that I'm considering studying with a teacher again.
How's the cost per lesson on average?
I'm talking about...

Unisons

On all the drums method I've got I've never stumbled across unisons.

Re: Jazz ride technique

Just recently I was beginning again to study the John Riley bebop method.
John Riley clearly states that the quarter note pulse is paramount.
I'm inclined to trust him...

Re: Jazz comping in two

Hi,
the moment the musical director asked me to comp with a two feel during a sax solo seemed strange to me because I've got limited experience and exposure to jazz music.
Then my old drum teacher...

Jazz comping in two

Despite being a purely "technical" question I'd like to know how many jazz solos were played with a two feel. Please post examples.

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

It's not correct to me.
The flams are on the toms with the right hand.
It's basically a 5 stroke roll with the last (or first) note playes as a flam between the snare and the toms.

Re: Jeff Porcaro

I'll tell ya:
when Jeff passed away in 1992 (5th August) I was taking a sunbath in a beach in Sardegna (Italy).
I didn't even know about him.
After some time I listened to Toto IV but I didn't...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi Mr. Harrison,
maybe you can shed some light on a querelle that's going on in the Jeff Porcaro thread.
I'm asking you this 'cause you have a much more trained ear than most of us so here it goes:...

Plus, folks have a listen to "Too good to last" on the same album (All dressed up).

Re: Jeff Porcaro "On Every Street"

To me "Heavy fuel" it's Manu.
Because:
sec. 15: splash sound, typical of Manu;
1.14: again, small crash cymbal, it's Manu;
1.32: three stroke roll on hi-hat: it's Manu;
2.33: again, small crash...

Re: Jeff Porcaro

Absolutely correct: "Planet of New Orleans" is Manu. Definetly. The splashes and hi-hat rolls are his trademarks.
