Re: Todd Sucherman here!

I'll definitely give that a try in a week or so after I let my hand heal up. My snare is definitely tilted at a pretty extreme angle and I like to sit pretty high above it, so those two things could...

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

Hey Todd, I'm having a problem lately that I think you might have some great ideas on.

I've been playing traditional grip in rock and funk bands for about 10 years now (after playing matched for...

Here's a bunch, no real rhyme or reason except I tend to run through each one every other month or so.

Steely Dan - Decade

Re: Nasty Lick #37

This is definitely the "Weckl Nine" - such a great lick.

Great answer haredrums - glad to see you around everywhere these days, you're doing great stuff over at your blog.

Re: Q for John Riley and Bop players

Here's my two cents: fast bop phrasing is notated in straight eigths, but in practice most players tend to think in 16ths, using beats 1 and 3 as a replacment for quarter notes and treating every two...

Re: Inverted and reverse Paradiddle exercise?

Solid stuff from SEVNT7 - after you get through that I would add different accents on all the variations, particularly on the upbeats (3rd note). You're really cooking when you can add melodic accent...

Re: How can i remember

Question #1 - you'd be lucky to remember even one fill note-for-note... you need to listen to that stuff over and over again, even slow it down if you need to, and try to transcribe it (write it...

Re: Switching between tradish and matched

I leave mine tilted towards the bass, and let my left- hand "deal with it." I played match for many years before I made the switch, so I find my german-style grip is better at compensating for the...

Re: I have these playing hiccups. What can I do?

Ehh, you make one mistake a gig? Most guys steer wrong much more often than that, so I'd be pretty happy and not nitpick it so much. Even the masters rarely have a "PERFECT" gig. It's just their...

Re: Choosing which technique.

Matt's DVD is great, I'll second that one.

Back to the OP: heel-toe is great, it definitely has it's uses (many of which I apply myself), but it's also somewhat unweildy in the sense that it's...

Re: Choosing which technique.

Flat-foot can be really quite powerful, but you need some really well-developed legs (muscles, tendons, everything) - it can be easy to cause stress-injuries if you go too fast, too soon. I'd be wary...

Re: Metronome practice messing with my timing

Like others have mentioned above, the more you work with a metronome, the better tuned your "inner clock" will get. The more you work on your inner sense of time, the more your ears will pick up on...

Re: After all this time....

If you're getting bored, try moving your hands to different instruments, say RH on the floor tom and LH on the hat (or whatever sounds good to you.) Moving around the kit is eventually where you'll...

Re: After all this time....

Playing doubles (a two or four note pattern) over a triplet based time signature (which uses three note patterns) can feel pretty weird the first time you try it. You have to get used to having the...

Re: Loose Phrasing?

One of my first experiences playing in a professional setting illuminated the concept of loose phrasing to me very clearly. I had spent several years working on my timing with metronomes, playing...

Re: After all this time....

You're a little off there - what you've stumbled upon are triplet based time signatures like 6/8 or 12/8 (don't worry about the math too much yet).

4/4 refers to four quarter notes (or beats) in...

Re: Isolation

Love that reply Larry - I picked up that method from the New Breed when I was early into my career. I'd love to see a breakdown of the neuro-science involved there, but it's really quite brilliant.

Re: When to use certain grips

Here's what I use, and what I apply it for:

German Grip:

- snare drum chops
- quiet, uber-control type dynamics
- very fast and steady hi-hat or ride playing (unbroken 16ths or 32nds)
-...

Man, you're just so annoying aren't you? Music, like life, is NOT about progress, it's about enjoying the ride and helping others do the same.
