Re: Jon Dolmayan

I polished up Question! and Cigaro to jam with my guitarist the other day, Jon's drumming is great and fun to play. I think a small amount of grooves in Hypnotize / Mezmerize have been overdone, but...

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

I hate hitting your hand whilst playing aswell. More specifically I think the worst instance is when you hit your thumb or 1st finger... It's so hard to get the power back in your snare hits!

Re: Danny Carey

I reckon Right in Two is a great song - I love the progression from around 6.30 - 7.10. I cant really hear the likeness to 46&2. I agree with you about Rosetta Stoned. I think the album as a whole...

Re: Danny Carey

I dont think 10,000 Days sounds the same as any other Tool record. What songs on 10,000 Days are similar to others? Also what is wrong with the "it'll grow on you" line? I wouldn't ask anyone but a...

Re: Chad Smith

So...now that Stadium Arcadium is out.... What is everyone's opinion of it?

Personally I loved it from 1st listen. I'm a big chilis fan - my whole band loves em. They write kick arse songs, and...

Re: Danny Carey

I think 10,000 Days is a brilliant album. At first listen I was not sure whether it could compete with Lateralus and Aenema but upon further listens it is apparent that 5 years of work did go into...

Re: STICK TWIRLING AND SHOWMANSHIP TECHNIQUE.

I saw System Of A Down at the Gold Coast Big Day Out - and i cannot agree. Whilst he didnt do any stick twirling as far as a saw, he was definately grooving and the music was coming on fast and hard....

Re: THE DOUBLE BASS TECHNIQUE THREAD

In response to Nutha Jason - I think that working up double kick speed is important for metal drumming. Now it doesn't need to be used generically, but it is very hard to play complex fast rhythms if...

Re: Drumming punk/emo

That link didnt work for me, if it is just the one song under 10 meg, you can upload it straight into your post! Just go Manage Attachments, just under the Submit button. I would like to help you out.

Re: Drumming punk/emo

aahznightsky is right about looking at the Moeller technique and also the Gladstone technique. I developed the Moeller by covering punk bands, usually the ride pattern is reasonably fast! When I...

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

More unknown than anything else, Lucius Borich from Australian band Cog. He is a real good player and makes some really nice rhythms. If you like bands like Tool and APC you should check them out -...

Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

No one has included Matt McDonough from Mudvayne!

Admittedly some drummers listed may be 'better', but he definately deserves to be on the list!! :D

Re: Chad Smith. Like? Dislike? come in.

YES!!! I played to that album aswell, It improved my playing exponentially.
That is a beautiful album, not a bad song on it!
Chad's drumming is so tight, has so much feel!

Re: Music tracks minus drums...

Most cd burning software has built in converters, you just select to make an Audio CD and drop mp3 files on it. If you use Windows Media 9 it will also convert .wma

Re: Danny Carey

Yeah that groove is awesome! I also really like the hihat groove in 5/8 over Justins 6/8 bass in Lateralus. In Modern Drummer he explains most of the time sigs in the Lateralus album.

Re: Lars Ulrich

Lars was one of the first drummers i really got into. I think he complimented Metallica's music perfectly. He is not a technical master, but i mean he co founded metallica! 'Nuff said.
