Re: My Playing - The Horror!

so true - my status "deep in the groove" pretty much tells you where my sensibilities lie. I am so obsessed over time and groove that any fluctuations really upset me. I'm a big follower of many of...

Re: My Playing - The Horror!

Thanks Lar and the rest of the crew. I've got a lot of things to try out!

Counting out loud while playing has never been a big problem for me but for some reason I don't feel as locked-in as when...

Re: My Playing - The Horror!

wow - great suggestions. The Steve Smith bit really intrigues me.

I experimented with singing the melody line this morning and I was pretty much spot-on with the grooves and fills, so a huge...

Re: My Playing - The Horror!

Thanks everyone for the replies so far, much appreciated and it's comforting to know many of you also experienced similar challenges.

Opentune - at faster tempos my playing is cleaner but not...

My Playing - The Horror!

Hi everyone -

I took the plunge and started more consistently recording myself playing and listening to the results a few months ago. While my sense of time is generally ok when playing along to...

Re: The Greatest YouTube Drum Solo on Earth

Wtf? Who is this maniac?

That's probably the most impressive series of solos I've ever seen. That ending where he lays down that monster groove is epic.

Re: What's the worst drumming mistake you've heard on a professional recording?

Exactly. A lot of armchair quarterbacks on this thread.

Re: Simple drum charts

Good stuff. This may be an issue of nomenclature, but this seems like more of a transcription than a chart. I use charts as a type of cheat sheet when playing to songs I'm not too familiar with ie...

Re: Drum set up and positioning

You could also angle your drums sideways near the front/right side of the stage. I've been at some recent concerts (Will Kennedy, Mike Portnoy, etc.) where this was a good option for visibility and...

Re: Which song is your "Mustang Sally" song?

I live in Canada, so pretty much anything by the Tragically Hip makes my list.

Re: Yamaha 50th Anniversary

Probably because you were playing on an Export bass drum!

Hitting cardboard would sound heavenly when played with that bass drum! :)

Re: Time After Paying A Fill

Great questions. I've been doing it for so many years now that I principally hear the upbeat when I turn the click on.

To start, you should count one -AND two-AND three-AND four-AND to really...

Re: Time After Paying A Fill

Exactly. Starting with the upbeats is the easiest way to start.

Ultimately it teaches you to not rely on the metronome to tell you where the quarter note is; you'll start to feel it yourself....

Re: Time After Paying A Fill

An important component to learning to feel the quarter note when using the metronome is displacing the pulse to the e, and, or the a.

This was the best thing I ever did to having solid time....

Re: New Phil Collins Long Form Interview

I'm an obsessed fan and have read just about every interview he has ever provided. The interview did a great job of avoiding the cliches Phil always has to answer ie what is in the air about, did he...

How about the most important thing. They helped to create a sound which made their respective bands massive. Lars in particular is an important arranger who helped to craft some of Metallica's...

Re: Dave Grohl is underated!

The bottom line is that he played exactly what was called upon for the music (perhaps the best compliment that can be made for any drummer). Hard to imagine Nirvana being as successful as they were...

Not sure how long you have been playing, your goals (gigs, recording, practicing in the basement, etc.) or what type of music you enjoy playing. All of these...

Re: Nick Mason - Thoughts

He plays drums like a rhythm guitarist - lots of repeating motifs on his fills and a very deliberate approach to playing hats versus ride.

I was just playing along to young lust a few nights ago...
