Re: Methods For Beat Displacement in a Rhythm

Gavin Harrison has done a lot of work on this subject and other rhythmic illusions as he likes to call them. You might want to check out the book Rhythmic Illusions for a start. Here's some info from...

Re: Blisters

It's called loose grip, and not fighting the stick. I see it's no longer as fashionable around here, but it does work.

Loose grip doesn't mean having the sticks rebounding around uncontrollably,...

Re: Recording Woes

You may know where they are, but you won't know how much you've improved between practices. Additionally, recording yourself all the time will get you used to being recorded, which should help with...

Re: do endurance runs cripple top speed?

If you never push beyond 240 in your speed runs or beyond 180 in your endurance runs, you probably won't see much progress for quite a while. Endurance runs won't cripple your top speed, but they...

Re: Bass drum gallop sticking(?)

Pretty much ambidextrous too, so don't really try to compare yourself to him ;)

As far as the OP's question, I use R RLR RLR, etc. At speed, the right foot does consecutive sliding double strokes,...

Re: Double Bass Inconsistency

It's one of the most common problems there are when it comes to double bass. Pretty much everybody meets it at least once when developing those skills. Don't worry about it and don't forget that...

Re: Teacher responsibilty? - Grip

Jojo Mayer could be one. He talks about it in his "Secret Weapon..." DVD, but I'm not sure he says he used to play matched exclusively before or not.

Also, there's a lot of older videos of Vinnie...

Re: bass drum trick i just read about

What head do you have, how is it tuned and what kind of muffling do you use?

I'm guessing any effect would be more noticeable on an open kick with an unmuffled head that's tuned higher than JAW.

Re: Are "Studio" crashes meant only for the studio or softer playing?

The point is that in the studio, you generally want more controllable cymbals, with quick response and quick decay, in order to make clear accents without muddying up the overall sound. Volume is not...

Re: Teachers , down time between classes what do you do?

Why? Not enough time for your standard practice session, or you can't get in the right state of mind? Or is it just that there's no adequate place for you to practice there between lessons?

Re: Why is it all about the vocalist?

I agree. As I said already, though the focus was on the band at the beginning of the last century, there were times before when vocalists were the main attraction, just like they are now.

Re: Why is it all about the vocalist?

This was the turning point as far as the focus on lead vocals in modern Western pop music goes:

Re: Why is it all about the vocalist?

In popular music in general, it is all about songs. Songs are sung. The vocalist does the singing. Without the vocalist there is no song, and everything else is just accompaniment.

Re: Seat Height

Depends on how my feet work that day - what muscles work better in my legs, as well as the size and feel of the kick drum (type of head, type of patch, tuning, muffling, etc.). Lately I find heights...

Re: Need quite... alot of help (3 videos inside)

1. As dairyman said, he just plays the hi-hat on the off-beats. Snare plays 2 and 4, kick plays 1, 2, 3, 4, as far as I can see.

2. He plays straight sixteenth notes on the hi-hat, single strokes,...

Re: How can someone get up to 200 bpm on bass in months?

In addition to all the good advice in the previous posts, find songs with tempos just out of reach for you and play along to them until you can play them. This way you'll have clear short term goals...

Re: Seat Height

At 6' 0" tall, I find myself most comfortable between 19" and 21". I play on shared kits so I rarely have the throne set at exactly the same height twice in a row.
