Re: How much time till single stroke competency?

Odd is correct about using a log. I log my practice every time. write down bpm's and times.

I start with a warm up, then jump to about 70% of my max and work my way up... knowing your bpm's...

Re: How much time till single stroke competency?

You guys are missing the point. Building endurance for long periods doesn't mean the song requires you to play it like that.

It's about building muscle memory and endurance by going for 5 - 10...

Re: Exercises/rudiments -vs- or solos/excerpts

From a personal standpoint, recently I have not had as much kit time, but I have had lots of pad time. My playing has increased faster than ever doing nothing BUT rudiments and exercises.

Now when...

Re: better tecknique on pillows, than praktise pad !

You have built your wrists and need to build the fingers would be my guess.

I practice on about 3 different pads, one has no rebound, one has a bit, one has a lot. I change it often, use couch...

Re: Double Bass Work

squats and calf raises are always good things to do and are free :) . I find for double bass, depending on WHAT you are playing makes a difference.

Re: Double bass drum players

I'll say a few MAIN reasons I would or would not do it.

Positives

I'd say feel. the left pedal always feels a slight bit different than the right on a double pedal. However, getting 2 heads...

Re: Hey Joe: Great drumming or overplaying?

Man,, I don't even know how that song would sound with just straight time. Boring, lifeless, even the speed ups and slow downs make that song what it is. Now a days they would quantize/grid it and...

Re: Bass drum technique

I use ALL of my pedal.


When I want to play solid, say doing triplets on the double pedal in a heavy part and it has to be TIGHT, I'll "choke up" and play the top of the pedal by the drum.

Re: How to start?

Re: How to start?

I second getting a kit.. Even a cheapo used kit off craigslist will do in the beginning. If you keep at it for a year or two use a newer upgrade as a reward.

practice 30-60 minutes a day. Think of...

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

One reason why I love that both of my bands have day jobs and do this for fun. We make enough to fund the band, get CD's pressed, record, merch etc. But there isn't pressure having people need to...

Re: Pain in wrist...is there anything wrong with my technique?

I have dealt with wrist issues from the past on multiple occasions. I have a TFCC injury from a punching bag years back and can only say this.

Listen to physio. Take the month off.

Re: Learning heel up

I can't get the same power playing heel down for things like metal where I need to play very loud. When playing jazz I play heel down for control, and to keep that beater bouncing back nice and fast....

So true.. And f you argue it, there is most likely another drummer willing to step up and take your spot in most situations.

Re: Micing and Recording Tricks?

the lower the gain the better. use the DAW for volume or the built in focusrite software.

Re: Drum Video Settings

Re: Hoops/Lugs pitting... what can I do about it?

You can't fix it, but if they are filthy some brasso will work, or the ol tinfoil trick to make em look a bit better.

The only option would be powder coating, but be careful with high heat as it...

There are so many variables to every live gig.
Gear sharing, monitor mix, positioning of the drums, adrenaline, nerves, other musicians, what you ate or how your are feeling, etc.
