Re: OH technique - front to back?

OK - attaching the same bridge, now with slightly edited drums, I have panned OH back fully left, and OH front fully right. Toms have also been spreaded a bit (drummer's view). The bass is also on...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

OK - uploading a snippet of about 45 sec from one of the tracks. Two files - self explanatory:

One is "OH back", the other is "OH front". Two mono files, completely raw (without fade-ins).
The...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

The OH mics used were apparently two ribbon mics, Beyer M160.

Re: OH technique - front to back?

Actually no - by front - back, I mean literally front - back. He put one mic right in front of the kick, in line with my head, and the back mic was right behind me a few feet up. And the drums are...

OH technique - front to back?

All,

Just finished in the studio, tracking seven progmetal tunes in one go (8 hours).
Now, me & the guitarist are sorting the files, but it just now hit me that the engineer chose to OH the kit...

Re: Open handed drumming - What do you think about it?

I guess you've already found out that some of your questions are slightly flawed. Of course open-handed technique works with traditional grip. I assume people also use traditional grip in either...

Re: Double Stroke technique advice

Is your fulcrum tied between index finger and thumb, or middle finger and thumb?
Could you possibly involve more of the pinky during snap back? Are you trying to accent the 2nd stroke of the double?...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

The funny thing is I just saw a Lang-clinic on Youtube where he explains how he...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

So Thomas plays heel down, you say? Didn't know that. I assume he switches to heel-up for double strokes then, but interesting nevertheless.

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

Thanks - this is more what I'm after. The question is whether the trade-off with tensed, static upper leg muscles & hip flexors during fast singles heel-up is "better" than the tension we would get...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

Thanks, but that's not really what I'm aiming for. The thing is - when doing fast singles, one will (hopefully) utilize the smaller muscles to a greater extent. Just as you use fingers doing single...

Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

I've been playing for about 20 years, but it's not until the past, 5-6 years I more gravitated towards heel-up to have the broader pallette. I also intend to reach a fair amount of speed on the...

Re: Blushda - lR flam or rL flam in the beginning?

You're right. I had forgotten about the flam drag, so essentially it is the last half of the officially listed rudiment flam drag. I'll practice both the swiss army triplet (with the double triplet)...

Blushda - lR flam or rL flam in the beginning?

That's right. Aiming to get the blushda down properly now, but I understand there's a lot of confusion regarding this little figure. Many talks about this being derived from the swiss army triplet...

Re: Drummer in College (E-Drums?)

I had a DTXPress IV during 4-5 years while in university a decade ago. Served me very well for practice during those years living in a dorm room. I had to build a "stage" to put them on however,...

Re: Switching to Traditional Grip after 20 years?

IMHO I don't see why you choose to do that switch at all? If it's because you need a new approach you may well also move a cymbal or two, perhaps lower all the toms or anything else?
You can play...

Re: Are some drum techniques universal truths?

If traditional grip really was that powerful - why doesn't more people insist on playing it with both hands?

All together - matched grip has better reach, power and "symmetry". I see no reason to...

Re: Double pedalling

And you should of course also take into account that profiency at a higher speed does not necessarily means that you can handle all the lower bpm's. I can find 160 easy, and a solid 100 hard at times.

It all depends on where you are, and a good techer should be able to tell you.

Re: Did speed come easily for any of you?

Exactly. Musicality comes first. I somewhat relates this to weightlifting, where someones max is 400 lbs on a benchpress, but don't know the RM (repetitionmax at a certain weight), along with the...

Stil struggling to get a smooth 200 bpm with my hands and KEEP IT THERE for at least a few minutes.

Speed alone isn't my real problem - my issue is to have the endurance to keep up the speed, and...

Great books have already been mentioned below regarding independence - New Breed being the most classic one, apart from Stick control which is an absolute must.

Re: Funk studies

I have the Latham books and Garibaldis books - also Jim Paynes advanced funk drumming.

Future Sounds will always be on top of my list. (and that's NOT a play-along)
