Re: Exercises for learning these Songs?

You don't need exercises to learn songs. Learning the drum parts of those songs will act as exercises themselves. If you can't play them yet, you can simplify (play less or play slower) and practice...

Re: Too Old To Seriously Take Up Drumming?

Drumming isn't about strength; a drum stick weighs very little. If you get blisters, you're doing it wrong. Keep your hands loose and let the sticks do the majority of the work.

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

How about starting out with the all time best selling jazz record, Kind of Blue by Miles Davis. The tunes are highly approachable for a jazz initiate, and the personnel on that record are jazz giants...

Re: Looking for good double bass pedal techniques.

Practice Stick Control and rudiments with your feet. Don't worry about any particular technique. Just stay loose and pay attention to the sound.

Re: when is the right time to move on to the next exercise?

Remember to review the exercises the next day. This way you'll notice what needs more work.

Re: I don't remember what I practise

It's perfectly OK to include variety into your daily practice, but if you do different things on each day, you'll...

Re: Jazz Kit Idea

A 16" floor tom can be tuned up to bebop territory surprisingly well: http://youtu.be/4YVepskAwK4

Re: Jazz Kit Idea

You don't really need a crash or a splash for a jazz kit. A pair of hats and two rides is all you need. You can even ditch the other ride if it doesn't fit your budget.

Re: Sound person as part of the band

Our bass player is a sound engineer by trade, and he does the mixing on the stage.

Re: Unable to use fills I've been practicing for hours in my band

Here's something that'll help your fills: Play your groove and choose to substitute one note with another sound: play a tom instead of a hi-hat etc. There's your fill. Experiment with each note of...

Re: Unable to use fills I've been practicing for hours in my band

Sticking with the groove ain't a bad thing! Maybe your creative side doesn't want the fills to be where your analytical side wants to put them. You need to play and play and listen and listen until...

Re: wrong fills in the wrong groove.

Fills should, for the majority of time, reflect the surrounding rhythms, especially rhythms that come next. Playing triplet fills within a duple groove creates a bit of tension and contrast which can...

Re: Double bass opinions

The difference is that the two sticks have plenty of different sound sources -- the two bass drum beaters both create virtually the same sound. Two kick drums or a double pedal are essential for fast...

Re: Your leading limb/instrument?

Re: Can you sit comfortably at an E-kit?

Rotate the leftmost rack tom clockwise and the other one counter clockwise. This will create more space between the toms. If the floor tom is too close, flip the clamp / tom holder assembly so that...
