Re: Yamaha Japanese made drums

Re: Best Period of Yamaha Recording Customs?

You're referring to the text on the opposite side of the badge, if applicable. On the tom above the code is JK, and because these are 80s drums that equates to April, 1983.

Re: Understanding triplets

One thing when working these exercises is not to get too hung up on trying to read the notation strictly whilst swinging a ride hand; the idea is to play conceptually. You see the quarter and eighth...
