Re: Strange Drum Habits

Re: Learning from which pro?

If I studied with Vinnie, I'd probably get depressed because I suck so much... so I probably couldn't take it. I'd love to study with Tony though, if he was alive... and I bet he was a chill cat to...

Re: portnoy, bad technique??

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

Practice is my biggest issue, and the cause of this is a negative mindset, which is what I would label as my biggest weakness. My goals are quite lofty, and the gap between my goals and my current...

Re: Long Hours Practicing

Thank you everyone. This is helpful to me. I think maybe I just need to take breaks sometimes, like a couple days, have fun, forget about the drums, at least, not stress about them.

Re: Abe Cunningham

He's ridiculous. Genius. Perfect for the deftones. It makes it so Raw, and in your face. His pedal work is amazing (I thought he only had a single-bass drum pedal?)

Re: Fastest Double Bass Player?

Yeah, but what does 650 BPM mean? Does that mean if you set to 650 BPM, you hit it every beap, or more than one time between beaps?

Re: john dolmayan of system of a down

He's so unique. His choice of grooves and fills are so real and somehow unrepetitive (I don't get sick of it). The band itself is amazing. To articulate that much in that kind of style is not easy...
