It looks to me like this may have been a project for a friend who is in Film School. Many colleges have the equipment to do this.

I bet this is more of a music video project for school than a drum...

Re: Help w/my perception as a drummer

+1

I am a strong believer of being a "musician" rather than a "band member."

Get out and meet some other musicians. Doesn't mean you and your friend still can't get together. Nothing saying you...

Re: I might switch to Traditional grip. Any advice?

If you show me someone who can tell if a drummer is playing traditional over matched just by listening to them, I'll believe his opinion about which is "better."

There is your "proof in the...

Re: Best way to practice bouncing on paradiddles?

play paradiddles as slow as you have too in order to maintain control. as your control improves your speed will increase. Paradiddles are a good way to work on control.

Re: A question for all you one up, two down players

normal - 10"/14"/16"/22"

Re: What Do You Think About When Playing ?

Depends on the type of music and even the song. I can remember needing to count during certain parts of certain songs.
