Re: question for double bass players

It is possible.. I'm not saying you can't do it.. But can you post a video? 280 singles is insane.. I need to see it to fully believe it.

I'd like to see the beater angle/distance and a few other...

Re: question for double bass players

as someone who plays fast double bass I agree.
Lately for over 240 I do heel toe to save energy buy used to do more singles... up to 230/240

I think your confusing your speeds though. 280 singles...

Re: 15 for 30 challenge!

First of all I'm impressed.

That's as extreme as me doing a 250 for 10 challange

I can see the benifets, mentally from doing this and learning not to rush, but I think a half hour of this might...

Re: How do you count while playing drums?

My band writes some weird stuff here and there. like a one off measure in a different time. for stuff like that I usually need to count.

But for a cover, I'd listen to the song 20 times.. and play...

Re: Marco Minnemann

First heard of him in Necrophagist which i LOVED. but when he had a clinic with Rabb that was a very cool and eye opening experience for me.

the guy is not human!

Re: How do you count while olaying drums?

you mean in a different time? or changing the beat?

If you start playing more complex beats, (in 4/4) the counting doesn't change.. if its hard for you it's because it takes practice. I don't...

Re: Left Foot in the "Floating Double Bass" Technique

8th notes at 120 are going to be in the leg motion area.

It will feel very forced if your trying to do any ankle playing.

16th notes at 120 i to do a hybrid of leg ankle.

16th at 150 it...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

I find this kinda weird.. My MCX are fine and sing when I tune em with new heads.

On that note.. I have found some really really really crappy budget drums and can usually get a half decent sound...

Re: Left Foot in the "Floating Double Bass" Technique

Not sure what you mean by "floating double bass"

are you referring to heel up playing?

there are tempo shifts where it goes from leg, to leg and ankle, to full ankle.

Flying Fingers video lesson

I haven't made a video for a bit so here's a technique I have been asked about a lot lately.

Nothing crazy. Just a few pointers, and shots at different speeds to see the technique.

Re: Why does my right hand get so fatigued?

I cramp up when I play live because of the adrenalin, and I exert way more energy than I do at a normal band jam.

If I don't play for some time too I lose strength and endurance.

How long have...

Re: Hi-Hat speed help.

Also play in a Skate punk band.

playing in that 200-230 range on the hihat is a chore.

Re: Can't seem to play fast

I agree, start with your springs backed off, using the head for rebound... then slowly add spring tension to complement that.

playing fast involves ankles too, not your entire leg. and...

Re: Head rebound on different size bass drums?

As someone who place a bunch of fast kick I'll give my input.

I started with a 24, then 22, and am now down to a 20. no matter the head having a tighter batter helps with rebound, to a point.....

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Re: Starting Back At The Basics Is Very Humbling

I couldn't agree more.

I have recorded on 6 CDS, have no problem playing blast beats at 220+bpm and very fast double kick etc. many over the top fills.

I have also been playing for about 17...
