Re: Drummer diagnosed with musician's dystonia

Me too. I'm getting a referral to a neurologist who specializes in musician's dystonia (one of the nice things about living in Boston). I'll let you know what I find out. By the way, for my case,...

Anyone seen or tried these quizzes from NPR (http://www.npr.org/blogs/allsongs/145504087/drum-fill-friday)? I just discovered them today. Tried today's quiz, did horribly, just 1 out of 5. Last...

Re: Keith Carlock

Saw Keith last night with Oz Noy. Fantastic! Touring later with Steely Dan. Gotta see that!

Re: YES summer tour

I guess it's not enough to coax Bill Bruford out of retirement, though.

Re: Levon Helm Fans

Here here! I have my "Keep it goin'" t-shirt (http://www.levonhelm.com/keep_it_goin.htm). I wear it often, listen, and remember. And if we're going to mention movie roles, how about "Coal Miner's...

Re: Stick Control - How even is even?

I played this game with my instructor some months ago. He would close his eyes while I played a line from Stick Control (one of the first 12 lines, page 5), and he would try to guess which one I was...

Re: Robotic Prosthesis Turns Drummer into a Three-Armed Cyborg

I'm guessing that lots of the hype ("three-arm cyborg") is coming from the press, not the researcher himself. The researcher is probably trying to do good and may in fact be highly experienced with...

Re: Beginner and older...

I'm 49 (damn near 50) and started about 2 years ago. Also with no prior music experience. Certainly I agree with the advice about getting a teacher. Sometimes it's frustrating to see youngsters...

Dangerous Illusions

You all have probably seen the ads for this novel, Dangerous Illusions, all over various drumming websites. I finally succumbed. I can't say as I would recommend it for the plot or character...

Re: Paul Simon and Sting

I saw that Vinnie is with Sting per usual, and that alone would be reason enough to go to the show. Haven't heard anything about Paul Simon. I have been following Gadd, and he's made no mention of...

Re: Practicing rudiments without a pad or metronome. Bad idea?

Maybe Drumpants (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1400947701/drumpants-an-entire-band-in-your-pocket?ref=live). I think they'll have a built-in metronome too.

Re: Comprehensive drum book.

There are a couple of books that fit that description perfectly. They're the "fresh approach" books by Mark Wessels. They're only available on his website (http://www.mwpublications.com). Probably...

Re: Rudiments: The Big Three

If you could only pick 3, I would have said singles, flams, and buzz.

Re: Wikidrummers

Looks like this video has been posted in a bunch of places. The idea that drums (any acoustic instrument, really) sound different in different environments isn't exactly new, but I think that these...

Re: My 6 Year Old And Drums? / Drum Kit under $140?

I got a Sonor Safari for my 6-year-old, and it's perfect. A bit more expensive, but it does have good resale value. I'm told, for example, that they're very popular with the Berklee students.

Hi G. I'm another late starter. Started a couple of years ago, now 49 years old. No prior music experience. I'm really enjoying it. Modest expectations and mostly just enjoying the learning...

Re: Beware of Mr. Baker

I did see it and would recommend it. It's interesting and entertaining. But I have to say that it's hard to watch at times. Someone used the word "abrasive" to describe him, and I can't think of a...

Re: My 6 Year Old and Drums?

My youngest son just turned 6, and we just got him started on lessons. He's got a kit, and an instructor who is great with kids. Not worrying about grip, not using a metronome. Doing basic...

Re: Who won the Weckl/Colaiuta/Gadd drum-off?

Drumming's holy trinity. The whole thing is just awesome. I have the 2 DVD set of both shows, and the whole thing is amazing. The other show includes Louie Bellson, Gregg Bissonette, and Dennis...

Re: Sammy Davis, Jr.

Seems to be little known that he also did great impressions (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hguNG5rXf5g).
