Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hi Gavin,

I was watching an interview with you on youtube in which you mentioned that your teacher Dave Cutler had you learn an Alan Dawson Syncopation exercise, and that you had to practice it...

Re: Universities and Music *sigh*

I did a year of a music degree but dropped out due to illness. I could have gone back but decided it wasn't worth it.

Bear in mind this is in Ireland where it only costs about $3000 dollars a...

Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

For drummers who incorporate the left foot into say rock/pop/funk music do you find it helps solidify a better groove in your playing?

Obviously it takes a bit more limb coordination to work but...

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

This video deserves it's own discussion thread. Very important advice from a guy with great soloing chops but crucially with the discipline to know when to reel it in.

Re: sixteenths on hats?

Tom Sawyer by Rush would be a good example of 16ths with one hand played with a straight 'linear feel' with no accents. Listen to that if you haven't heard it yet. It's famous as song amongst...

Re: Indie Cindy - Pixies help!!!

This song is explained in a drumming magazine (Rhythm magazine) that just happens to be beside me right now so I'll quote it word for word for you now.

Re: The Clave Police

Sorry about the lack of clarity there. I borrowed the term clave police from another drummer i know of who is the first person i heard using it. He's a top class jazz and latin drummer himself. I...

The Clave Police

Ever notice these guys in the comments sections of latin drumming youtube videos? :D

They'll typically pull up foreign drummers if they feel they are not playing a samba/afro cuban rhythm the way...

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

Those more advanced fill in triplet coordination exercises in that book lose me completely. No matter how many times I read Alans instructions, I can't figure out the method used to play it. I'd need...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

As I previously stated, the demand is there for those DJs to earn that money. Simple economics.

In the same way as jazz listeners? Jazz has a more niche place in the market and always has. EDM is...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Another out of touch of opinion. People are hardly going to pay good money for an event with music that doesn't appeal to them. Maybe some will but many won't.

These festivals attract fans of...

Completely disagree Andy.

This is very unfair on Deadmau5 who is a good producer of music (yes, he actually composes and is a musician before someone tries to dumb down his work into something...

Re: Wrist Sprain, Advice?

Thanks. Doing this at the moment.



Maybe. I've never had any pains after gigging over the last while. I think I should have taken more breaks during the sessions.

Re: Amazing (old) studio footage - Simon Phillips with The Coors :)

It's The Corrs, if I can correct you there. :) I gig in the town they're from quite a bit.

Great footage by the way. Simon is world class. But did anyone feel a bit sorry for Caroline? I can't...

It seems I've sprained my wrist in some way from practicing over the course of 2/3 long sessions in a local rehearsal room.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I'm a #2 I guess?

Never played a double pedal in my life.

Wouldn't mind getting one because I listen to a good bit of prog metal and would like to give some of that a shot.

But I guess a new...

Re: Yamaha Japanese made drums
