Re: Cajon fatigue?

As for me I was originally fascinated by the history of the instrument. African slaves brought over to South America were banned from playing percussion instruments because slave owners thought they...

Re: Limb fractures/breaks and the affect on your playing

When I was 14 years old I broke my wrist and hand. My dad being the rough and tough stereotype of a guy he is looked at my hand and said "it's not broken, just go put some ice on it." I went a week...

Re: Stick Tricks While Playing, Pro Level.

I'm still under the strong impression that stick tricks should stay to marching band and drum corps. But hey, to each their own.

Re: Cajon pedal

I'm gonna be honest, spend the cash and get one of the Gibraltar cajon pedal. They're incredible. Fantastic response, and more comfortable than playing a regular bass pedal with your heel. Also, the...

Re: Sticks sound different on pad

It could also very well be an inconsistency in the pad. If the rubber density is different, it may change the pitch a bit. It may be noticeable more with the snares off.

Re: Looking for marimba/xylophone + piano music

Morris Goldenberg's clasic arrangement of J.S. Bach's concerto in A minor is a good 2-mallet one! You can find it on Steve Weiss.

One for 4-mallets that's fun is Ney Rosauro's Concerto for Marimba...

Re: Djembe vs Congas?

Djembe is more 'user friendly' as far as technique goes. Congas are fun too but use a slightly more difficult technique with heel, fingers, slap, open, ect, but are a lot of fun and a could be a new...

Re: The Burton Grip

I use Burton grip for vibes, but I would imagine it would be workable on drum set, especially with the cross section. I wouldn't think Stevens grip wouldn't work too well for that kind of application.

Re: Best purchases you've made for drums.

Honestly, the best purchase I've made was actually a percussion instrument. My LP Angled Surface Cajon. It's opened up the possibility for me to get called for acoustic gigs as well, which easily...

Re: my rudiments suck, have I missed out the fundemental part of being a drummer?

Re: Is "jamming out" neccesary to you?

I truly believe jamming is a major part of being a musician. Can't get any better if you don't play with others.

Re: What drums heads should I buy?

I'm not really sure what to recommend for your toms but I would recommend a 2-ply head with a reinforcement dot for your snare batter. It will hold up to your playing as a 'hard hitter' and also with...

Re: Is practicing every day a must?

I believe this is a double sided answer. How you practice is number one. If you are not practicing 'correctly' then no matter how long you practice it's a waste of time. Once you learn to practice...

Re: Bill Bachman: Rudimental Logic ?

I use the book personally and with the drumlines I work with. Great for building technique, rudiments, and forming a solid/uniform line.
