Re: Murray Spivack technique?

That's a good point ...

When I was first taught Spivack's concepts by my late drum teacher, Rick Steed, our first lesson didn't even involve drumsticks ... He showed me the correct motions and...

Ed,

Thank you very much for the contribution. There is some wonderful history with all of this!

And you are right... it's much more than just the grip, though it is difficult to explain the...

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

"Weakness" sounds like some sort of physical deficiency.

So I don't think of it as "what's my weakness?" as much as I think of it as something that simply needs to be developed with hard work.

Re: Murray Spivack technique?

Well, there is the maxim that you do whatever works for you, and if you like what you're doing, why change, right?

But I think this technique has proven to be advantageous for many "name" players...

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

Drummers are natural arrangers, and are often arrangers on major tours for big acts.

Having a good grasp of theory (especially ear training) will only help your band to have more focused and...

Re: Murray Spivack technique?

Well, it's not really a "named" technique per se, but rather a set of concepts taught by Murray Spivack. What gives it such a degree of association and cred is the drummers who literally sought out...

Re: Murray Spivack technique?

You're lucky if your grip is somewhat similar ... because I think Spivack's whole idea was the "natural" way of gripping the stick.

But just keep working at it and analyzing what you're doing!

Re: THE DOUBLE BASS TECHNIQUE THREAD

Not really. They just take work to smooth out, and sound great in groove playing (especially for "1e").


But having that difference in the notes (it's not as stark if you smooth them out) gives...

Re: Loss of Dble Bass ability

Do as Tim Waterson does--

Practice each foot separately for long periods of time (as in months) before putting them together. Use a metronome and start at a slow tempo.

He and many other great...

Hey there...

I definitely know about Chuck Silverman. He's a great drummer! He always reminded me of Garibaldi, which is a good thing!

Just hand technique in general: grip, fulcrum, mechanics, etc.

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

If you know the Moeller motion, you're halfway there.

Try doing a string of slow 16ths, accenting the quarters with the Moeller stroke. Now, as you're doing that, notice what you're doing on...

I'm actually recommending though to work on rudiments and such: doubles (especially with the second note accented), singles, paradiddles, flams, etc.
