Re: The book that influenced you the most.

Oh yeah I like that one too.

For me it's Developing Dexterity for Mitchell Peters. It's basically a substitute for Stick Control. With this book I built a solid foundation, not for my house but...

Re: Back from New York - Dom Famularo, Billy Ward and more! Pictures inside!

I saw Dom Famularo at a clinic last summer and all I can remember from it is that he plugged his own interests constantly, as if this website he was representing was on the cutting edge of musical...

Re: Audition Tuesday

Maybe you should go watch the band sometime if you can, and see their drummer, and compare yourself with him. Maybe you didn't have the feel they were looking for. Or if he sucks, then he must've...

Re: "Drive"

I guess it's easier to think of a beat as two parts, beginning and end, because it's next to impossible to play every note on the EXACT center of the beat. Beginning drives, end grooves. Be mindful...

Re: "Drive"

I think drive is achieved by playing in front of the beat. I believe there are three parts to every beat: the front, the beat, and the back. Playing on the front makes it feel like your rushing if...

Re: Has anyone conquered Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual?

I didn't expect so many people to know of this great exercise. I have the first part memorized, up to the swiss rudiments. I used to play it once a day, not as a warm-up but immediately after my...

The ceiling fan in my room clicks steadily all through the night and I often find that the rhythm keeps me awake for a long time, not because it's annoying, just because it's rhythmic.

Re: Playing jazz w/ matched grip

I find it easier to play light grace notes with traditional grip because the weight of the stick is above your hand, rather than hanging below it. It's easier to drop down a light touch.

Re: Examples of good swing to play along with

By good swing, I'm referring to a solid "spang-a-lang." The spang-a-lang is easy to play, but difficult to play well. It takes a lot of work to develop a really swinging spang-a-lang. But I guess...

The idea behind this thread is to give songs that showcase good swing, for one to play along with to develop their own sense of swing. Don't list anything that is impossible to play along with, like...

Re: Kick Ass Jam Tonight!!!!

I don't know about the language in the title of this thread.

Zoned-in jams are the best. They're even better when you throw some d's on them.

Re: should albums that have been "digitally enhanced" have a label saying so?

No. That would be flat out bad for the music business; they wouldn't put a label that risks their artist's integrity on the CD, it would damage sales. The music business is bad enough already. ...

Re: traditional grip stick placement

It didn't take me too long to get used to the stick on the cuticle, but at the very beginning it was very awkward.
