Re: Ride Cymbal Technique

I was watching that video over and over for about 15minutes straight, and I noticed his grip is wayyyyyyyy back on the stick, almost at the end. These may be a totally naive questions, but does that...

Re: "Drum Wisdom" by Bob Moses

My father-in-law-to-be found it for me. Two days after I asked him if he could find it. I have no idea where or how, but I'm sure as heck not complaining.

Re: Gospel/R&B/Hip Hop style drumming

...have you listened to the latest Mars Volta album? Pridgen MAKES that album, IMO. Just because it's crazy doesn't mean it's not musical. It just needs to be in the proper context (i.e. on a Mars...

Most you've paid for a lesson?

I've been in contact with a big-name drummer (I won't name names yet), and I was caught a bit off-guard when I found out his hourly lesson rate. I'm not necessarily surprised that it was a lot, but...

Re: Shooting a music vid tomorrow

By playing the video at 75% and 150%, you can get some cool visual effects.

i.e. If you play it at 75%, then speed up the video to match the tempo of the audio, you'll look like you're moving...

Re: Giving drum lessons

For what it's worth, I have a degree in music and I STILL don't think I'm good enough to teach. ESPECIALLY with newbies. Just my $0.02.

Re: Marron5 on Americn Idol (Why additional drums!!)

Another possibility is that having the full kit on stage might be part of his endorsement contract. After a little Wiki search, I found out he (Matt Flynn) is a Yamaha artist. I've wondered the same...
