Re: Rudiments at slow speed/low volume

Awesome topic. Thanks for the insight here. This is rarely discussed online, as Todd's article elaborates!

Re: Metronome settings: shortest note gets one beat VS denominator gets one beat

I’m trying to go both ways, each has its own benefit, depending on your goals and your musical interest.

As Todd says, when you start to use the click in the smaller subdivisions, you will play...

Re: Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Thank you! Those are ace.

I only ever listened to whiskey in the jar and the boys are back in town. Clearly I have been missing out. Such an amazing voice and the guitar harmonies are perfect.

Re: The thing you bought but you never use

20 inch China.

Too loud! And when you try and play it at lower dynamics the timbre just isn’t right.... very disappointed there!

Re: Drummerworld on iPhone

I view DW on an iPhone 5 SE on safari. It re-orientates just fine when I switch between landscape and portrait.

Re: ‘N.C’ in drum notation

Cheers all.

So in the context of instruments that can play harmony, the composer is essentially saying ‘don’t mess around trying to play chords, just play the melody that I’ve written’?

Re: Double Bass Shuffle: Left or Right foot lead

I do it the same as isits.

I used to start on my Right and do R-LR-LR

But after discovering R-LL-RR that is now my preferred way as like ‘isits’ says, it’s the same as a continuous triplet...

Re: Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Cheers everyone, I am learning a lot here!

Thanks AlParrott; I had no idea that you could notate the shuffle in 12/8. Funnily enough, when I googled shuffle in 12/8 it was some of Toddbishops...

Re: Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Cheers AlParrott,

I have just downloaded the album you mentioned. I am liking it.

Re: Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Thanks for commenting guys. I guess there must be some magic in those meters.

But I think you two have hit it on the read there;

Do 3/4 and 6/8 ‘flow’ better for you?

Better than 4/4 I mean.

Re: Booted out of band, advice needed

You can be a great musician but still be a knob. He might be the former but if he is making you feel that way because of your job/home-life situation then I think in time, you won’t miss the guy.

I believe the taper changed from short to medium. Can’t say for sure when this happened. Maybe compare the taper to a new pair?

As for why he got it, Carpal Tunnel actually has a strong genetic...

Re: Instructing new students: Speak/play first or read first?
