Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

The first thing I do is have them listen to some music (I usually go with Back In Black by AC/DC) and tap the pulse with their sticks. When (or IF in some instances) the pulse is found, we'll move on...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

Our band's PA is owned by our bassist. The other three members of the band pay 20€ per gig (or if the bassist needs a sub, the rent is divided four ways). We have no problems dishing out a sum that...

Re: Overlooked instructional books/DVDs/CDs

I might be able to agree a bit more if I tried really hard, but right now I just can't bring myself to it. This book is phenomenal!

Re: Click practice is great and all but..

Move the click to 2&4 or 8th note upbeats to make the metronome swing. For developing steadiness of tempo over a longer period of time, use a single click per bar (or multiple bars).

Re: Notation

Just try to make things look like it's printed. Over time you'll develop speed while maintaining quality and intelligibility.

Re: Could someone please explain this song to me? (Feiticeira by Deftones)

The guitar riff starts with a pickup of four sixteenths, and the rest of the intro is in 3/4 time. The guitarist plays an accent on the second beat of each measure, which helps you line up your own...

Re: Pros vs. Average Joe's

I've no idea. I'm a professional drummer and I know plenty of hobbyists who could play circles around me... yet here I am, paying the bills by playing the gigs.

Re: Snare buzz

I've never stumbled upon a snare without a snare bed. My Acrolite has one and I doubt Ludwig removed the all important feature from their newer models.

Snare buzz is an integral element of a kit's...

Re: If and when to move on from a routine

First read and learn what to play. Then, as soon as possible, ditch the notes and make it your own -- vary the dynamics, tone, orchestration, phrasing. Check occasionally whether you're still playing...

Re: Should I give up this hobby for drumming?

Quitting after getting a black belt is just as arbitrary as quitting after a red belt. The black belt signifies the true beginning of your journey as a martial artist -- it signifies that you have...

Re: Applying Paradiddles and drags/ghost notes

Just orchestrate them around the kit. Take the paradiddle, for instance. You could:
