Strange Request - "Great Hands for a Lifetime"

So not sure the exact legalities of what I am asking, or if its permitted on these forums. I apologize in advance, I hope you understand my dilemma here.

So I already own Tommy Igoe's "Great...

Re: Drumming for musicals

My senior year of high school we did footloose. I ran sound since I was also a techie, but I was kind of the shadow for the hired drummer, since he was really impressed with my playing (as he helped...

Re: Who does this, really?

Just kinda brisked through this thread, so it may have already been mentioned, but what bothers me is that drums seem to be the one thing that no one buys cases for, or has cases for. You ask a...

Re: Songs composed by drummers

I rarely start songs with a drum beat. I rarely start songs with the full band/group. Usually its just a solo instrument, sometimes part of the group.

Re: Ginger Baker Reacts to Passing of Jack Bruce

This was the reaction I was waiting for. Somebody on Reddit made the cheeky comment as soon as the news broke that Baker would be complaining that Bruce died too loudly. Gave me a chuckle in my...

Re: Songs composed by drummers

I compose rock music onto sheet music mostly, although I've done some symphonic stuff and one or two jazz tunes before.

I just put up a trailer for a rock musical I'm recording, I composed the...

Re: Hearing the upbeat as the downbeat

I have this issue with fast music, but its more flipping the 1 and 3 with the 2 and 4. I'm thinking "huh, this drummer is going all Ginger Baker and slamming the snare on the 1 and 3."

No, just...

Re: Songs composed by drummers

I'm a drummer and a composer. I started out as a pianist, then the skills I learned from that I then branched out into drumming and composing.

I compose like any classical composer would, I don't...

Re: A new movie called Whiplash

Sorry, I have a thing about having to go with a friend to the movies. I've never seen a movie by myself in a theater.

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I own three drumsets right now. My main Sonors I am super attached to. Even when I finally go pro-level as far as drums go, I'll still treat my meager Force 2001 set with the utmost reference.

Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

I'd have to say my main ones are Ringo Starr, Mitch Mitchell, and Ian Paice.

Re: Blushda fill - drum lesson

Cool lick, but yeah, I would have to say your flams are pretty flat. Your grace note is almost louder than the primary. If I saw my students doing that I'd rip out my hair.

Will try to learn...

Re: Snare under $200

Honestly, would any new wood snare in the sub-$200 range be any better than a stock snare?

Re: Got about 15 mins each day to increase speed... How should I practice?

So if you want to increase speed and control, I'd concentrate on pad work.

If you're willing to buy the Tommy Igoe DVD Great Hands for a Lifetime, the Lifetime Warm-Up would be perfect. The...

Re: 5 Variations on the Six Stroke Roll

By 6 stroke roll, don't you mean paradiddle-diddle but starting on a different place? My understanding that a 6 stroke roll was where the singles were 8th notes, and the doubles were 16th notes (or...

Re: What songs do you really like the drumming on?

Practically any Deep Purple song from the Mk II and III era (Mk I was great too but Ian Paice was still quite young and learning to find his style, so it wasn't quite fully developed).

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Wait....I was always told that 6-9 ply shells are more resonant than 3 ply shells, from numerous sources. I'll look it up some more, but I'm always skeptical of a single source of converse opinion....

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Also, why do people want to get the most resonant drum types possible (lots of plies, super deep bass drums, etc.) then put pinstripes or moongel or padding on it. Makes no sense. Just get a...

Re: Rock snare under $200

I honestly can't think of a snare that wouldn't be good for rock.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Thought it was common knowledge that Zildjian sticks suck. The only people I ever knew who used them were newbies on the drums. That's it. Most people figure it out real quick after that.

Re: Tabs Vs. Traditional Notation

Another vote for notation.

I've looked at tab and was like "can't tell if that's supposed to be a sextuplet or 32nd notes, but its spaced like a quintuplet?"

You will never have that issues...
