Re: More Creative on a Larger Kit

I usually just play on whatever's there or needed for the job. It may be anything from 2 piece to 7 piece kits. If you can do that AND don't feel strangled or overwhelmed, you're pretty creatively...

Re: Liveliness in playing

I played guitar once at a jam session in town with a drummer who was way too lively with dynamics (and some subdivisions, but that wasn't a big issue). We would start to get a good build-up and then,...

Re: Middle finger as pivot point for stick?!

I try to cover all kinds of grips to a certain extent. The more you know, the more you'll be able to do :-) Nowadays I switch between grips/fulcrums/pivot points to my liking, whatever sounds and...

Re: Equaling hands that are already equal?

I think it could be because it doesn't seem (to me at least) like you've practiced that one rudiment (single stroke roll) enough, compared to the rest. That's why you can't play it as well as the...

Re: How to set up for this classical piece?

Thanks for replies! (Both ;-) ) Yeah, my next step is trying out the spots where the instrument changes have to be quick. It looks like the most practical will be to use one set of yarn mallets...

How to set up for this classical piece?

This might be a shot in the dark, but has anyone here ever played Harald Genzmer's Symphonic Concert for saxophone orchestra and percussion? The percussion part is a set up consisting of 3 gongs...

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

A 24" Slingerland chrome finished bass drum from the early 70's. Haven't gotten around to using it yet, it needs a bit of fixing. I'm planning to order some parts in august/september.

Re: Big band percussion advice needed

Big band percussion advice needed

Hello all! I'm currently playing percussion in the conservatory's big band and I'm wondering what to do on swing tunes?
My rig consists of congas, timbales, some cowbells, two cymbals and some...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I've never liked Neil Peart and I've never been a fan of Steve Gadd. And just to top it off, I've also not been a fan of Dave Weckl's style.

Re: Parts of songs at completely different tempos

If it's done well and sounds right, I think it's okay. This might be a thing that I've adopted from classical music, that certain parts of music feels better at different tempi. It is very common in...

Re: Identify the time signature(s) in this song

To me it sounds like 4/4 then into 7/8 and then there's a part in 15/8 (4/4+7/8 or something like that) before they return to 4/4.

Re: Foundational Songs For Beginners/intermediate

Rosanna by Toto is absolutely a groove that every drummer should know (IMO). But for beginner/intermediate, based on what other songs are on your list, I would recommend Bernard Purdie's half time...

Re: Please help! I have a seemingly rare problem.

Whatever you practice, you'll get good/better at ;-) That's a simple rule that I have to remind myself of constantly. No matter what I've practiced or played, I have gotten better at doing that exact...

Re: Drum set pride

I would definitely tell everyone if I played a cheap drum and it sounded good. Something like: "OMG, it's this cheap old drum. I can't believe I could make it sound this good! This drum sounds...

Re: Jazz standards

As a drummer, recognizing song forms can get you a long way. Most standards are either in a blues form or 32 bar AABA (these can be swing, straight 8 or latin). So if you've played any other...

Re: Classic tunes speeding up

Thanks for responses, everyone! I'll try to boil it down into one post from me here.

I noticed the tempo change as I played through the songs and where starting over again. I have never bothered...

Re: All 4 fingers on the stick? yes or no?

Of course, I watched all of it. Did you even read my second sentence? ;-) Quoting myself: It's not the fact that I always use all four fingers, but they're there and ready to control the stick when I...

I study classical percussion, but the next two semesters I've got drum kit as an elective subject. I'm going to play, amongst other songs, Actual Proof and Soul Vaccination. I find that on the...

Re: All 4 fingers on the stick? yes or no?

I believe yes. More fingers mean more control (and POWAH! YEAH!) to me. It's not the fact that I always use all four fingers, but they're there and ready to control the stick when I need to. I feel...

Re: Picking a situationally appropriate kit

Personally I find that a 20" bassdrum is probably the most versatile one. But if available, I would almost always go for a smaller one for a jazz gig or a bigger one for a pop/rock-kind of gig. For...
