Re: Why is jazz drumming still so dominant?

All the great rock drummers learned jazz drumming.

Mitch Mitchell, Ginger Baker, John Bonham, Keith Moon, Ian Paice, Carl Palmer, they all took jazz lessons as kids, were inspired by people like...

Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

Considering how many quieter gigs I play these days (musical theater and the like), I really should practice heel-down more, because its much more useful in certain contexts than others.

Re: Rick Beato -- Is the man!

That's the point....his channel is geared toward advanced theory stuff. The "What makes this song great?" series is just his most popular one, but its actually less advanced and technical than his...

Re: Talk about a drumming revelation you've had

Well, honestly you may have been originally right.

I was in a band for several years where the guitar and bass had half stacks cranked, and I had to really lay into my drums to cut through.

I've never used pillows or ever put anything in my drums.

If I need to dampen for some really quiet gigs (boomy coffee houses, musicals, etc.) I use moongel, about 2-3 per tom/snare.

Re: Check Out Bonzo

Not really. Top of the Pops was the big one and that was always mimed.

Re: Audix I5 vs Shure SM57 comparison video

I made a video on this about 7 years ago. Too bad my snare was tuned kinda shitty at the time.

Re: What sticking do you use?

I didn't bother reading all the replies, but something like that I'd just do natural sticking. Pretty much anything simple like that on one drum calls for natural sticking. You'd only want to use...

Re: Software to chart / notate

Notating by hand can be very quick, it just depends on experience and what software you can use.

Notating using keyboard shortcuts with Sibelius is much faster than doing it using your mouse in...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Not necessarily, Rage Against the Machine made pretty good use of repetition that works.

Re: Survey for a school assessment

I answered, but note that my answers pretty much amount to "the same" because there's almost a wider difference among B20 cymbals themselves, than the difference between B8 and B20. An A (B20)...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Yeah there is. Ignore the note-for-note, and you can do all sorts of things with cover bands. I lead a rockified Lady Gaga tribute group where we play all her songs with sweeping guitar solos and...

Re: Jazz Drummer v Metal Drummer

It really started with ...And Justice For All. Not the sample replacement, but the tone. That super clicky bass drum was pretty much invented for that album, and its seen heavy use since. The mid...

Because playing Dave Matthews, Zeppelin, and James Brown requires talent.

Re: The thing you bought but you never use

I bought a gong, not expecting to actually use it at all but just because I wanted a freaking gong to be behind me while I practice.
