My favorite Lee quote is from Enter the Dragon:

"It is like a finger pointing away to the moon. Don't concentrate on the finger or you will miss all that heavenly glory."

Re: Transcribe your own band's drum parts?

I don't transcribe note for note but I do try to write out a detailed cheat sheet to follow until I have the song memorized. I'll write out the song structure, and possibly a rhythm idea that I'd use...

Re: Going back to basics

A book will help but my advice would be to get a few private lessons. A good teacher will get you moving on the material much faster than most can do on their own. They might start you with a simple...

Re: Beat boxing singing percussively vocables etc...

Being able to sing a rhythm will bring you much closer to playing the rhythm. Just a simple vocalization is sometimes all the brain needs to understand the pattern and have the hands/feet play it. I...

I've lost count of the small injuries sustained from strange drum accidents.

-To this day I don't use nylon tip drumsticks cause I've almost had both eyes put out by them.

Re: Favorite metal drummer?

Roddy really takes the cake for me. The guy is just a monster. To be able to play that fast and solid and make it look so easy...

And he has GREAT first name.....

Re: Bass Drum Techniques trailer!

Looks good man.

I'll be checking that out.

Some of the speaking came off as a little bit slow to me, but thats probably just because I talk too fast. :)

Re: Drummin with the Pros

Jamming with Johnny Rabb in his basement was a dream come true. It was pretty surreal.

It reminded me that:

Re: Rhythm Scale Exercise

Also those higher density groupings really sharpen your subdivision and counting skills. It may seem strange to be practicing 17 notes per quarter, but when you go start playing your 3's and 5's in a...

Re: What to expect from a drum lesson?

When you come out of your first lesson you should be thinking "wow i have so much to learn i am excited", not "what a waste of time and money".

Don't give up hope though. Sometimes it takes some...

Re: I somehow know how to play a triplet roll.

Re: Sense of rhythm going out of balance

I agree with wave. I can't see that translation happening.

Logically it could be the problem, but I don't think it is.

How exactly has your inner metronome changed?
