Re: Ludwig Club Date NOT discontinued

I have a Cavern Club SE in blue oyster pearl-20, 12, 14, and it is a wonderful sounding kit, very round for sure. My snare was a bit fussy in getting the snares to resonate properly, but I've got it...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Thanks, Larry.
Looks like great recommendations all around.
What type of branded heads for all drums did you replace the Sonor-Chinese heads with?
I'm thinking something with a bit attack to...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

What does everyone think of their Player kit now that they've had it for almost a year?
I'm considering buying one and have found several that are barely used at a deep discount. My GC will also...

Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

Jeff's my hero.
Whenever I'm concerned about keeping a groove going for a tune, I'll refer back to some of his solid work to refresh my mind/muscle memories, reminding simple & steady is GREAT.

Re: Bill's site

I subscribed to Bill Bachman's site last summer when he had a free 2 week trial and went through his lessons as much as possible, downloading what lessons I could in PDFs.
To this day I have...

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

This YouTube video called "19 blues drum shuffles" has 2 variations labeled "Steve Gadd" -- the hi hat beat is played on the "and" of each quarter note.

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

Larry:
Since you play a lot of blues-based music, would you favor 2&4 on the hats for that, or would you utilize them on other beats?
Some music seems better suited to only 2 &4, but perhaps that's...

Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

When do you play hi-hat beats with your foot? I keep the foot going on 2 & 4 around 90% of the time (when keeping time or brief fills/solos) for rock, pop, blues, jazz, etc. This is a long habit...

Re: Has anyone read the book "The Wrecking Crew"?

Bermuda- thanks for pointing out there are 2 books with a similar title.
I read Hartman's "Wrecking Crew" last summer, but didn't realize there was a 2nd book with Hal's name in the title. I'm...

Henley is indeed a groove wizard for The Eagles' songs.
I often listen and play the game of 'what would I play' in a particular transition or fill. I always lose that game :)

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

Many great drummers can switch grips during songs, like the switch from sticks to brushes or back from cross-sticking.
I will sometimes switch from matched to traditional during certain songs if...

Re: Is Don Henley relevant here?

Agreed!
Henley is always fun to listen to, simplicity with a sense of well placed musicality to his beats. Reminds me you don't have to fill in all the time or play too many notes/too fast.

Re: hands getting beat up

You might want to consider lightly coating the sticks with Zildjian cymbal wax or a similar product. If you use this when you first start warming up, the grip will be easier on your hands and the...

Re: Best Youtube instructors for the following

+1.
For rudiments and stick techniques, I haven't found anyone clearer, easier to follow but [more than] sufficiently detailed like Bill Bachman.

His online lessons are very interactive, fun...

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

Kickport now makes a reso bass drum head with a kickport already installed in an ebony Remo PS3. This is less expensive than buying the kickport and resonant head separately.

Re: club date se

+1 for me.
I also got the snare drum in my purchase, which was used but virtually brand new.

This has got to be the lightest set of drums... The bass drum almost feels like nothing to pick up in...
