Re: Steve Smith- fill on Seperate Ways

I always played this fill like a four stroke ruff except the last note is with the bass drum. The video has a great explanation of this fill. Steve Smith actually said that he got this from Steve...

Re: Some stuff about rimshots

Steve Gadd always uses quiet or ghost note like rimshots. With his Ludwig Supra it just sounds so good. Look at the beginning of this clip and you'll see. Plus this is some of the greatest Steve...

Re: ...Grrr...snare....grrr...

I do agree with some of this post. However, I think that biggest thing to consider is that the snare sound you want is mic'd and the snare that you hear isn't mic'd. It seems simple but basically...

Re: Steve Gadd - Up Close

I agree that Up Close is great. You can get a lot of grooves and licks from it even if the explanation of them isn't the greatest. Same thing goes for In Session. I've gotten many licks and...

Re: Some Transcriptions

Thanks for that great transcription. Looks pretty darn good. I've always wanted it written out but I just don't have the skill or patience. Looks like you have both. Thanks again!!

Re: Ultimate Speed Goals

I know above 250 is when to start more of a straight eigths feel. Mostly the comping I was talking about was straight quarters with the right hand and the last two triplets with the left. Sorry...

Re: Ultimate Speed Goals

I would like to be able to play jazz and swing with a group at 300bpm or faster. That includes the traditional ride cymbal pattern and some triplet comping with three voices. Not really dense stuff...

One of my all time favorites is the one from Chuck E's in Love (Rickie Lee Jones) from the legendary Steve Gadd.

Re: need tribal beat for metal music...

Try the Mozambique sticking pattern on the toms (I use the right hand on the lower two toms and the left on the upper two toms) and change it up with accents and different voices. Here is the...

Re: Drummers who have influenced you

Steve Gadd has been the greatest influence in my drumming. I had been drumming a couple of years, and when I first heard Steve play, it was exactly how I thought drumming should sound and be...

Re: The legendary Steve Gadd.

He actually did come to Portland Maine, New York city, Boston, etc. last July with the Mission from Gadd Tour. I saw him in Portland. I'm hoping to see him this time as well.

Re: Challenge

I would suggest comping with the bass drum and hi hat. Make sure though to keep the ride cymbal pattern the same and accenting the quarter notes. That way you will keep the forward motion going. ...

Re: Gadd Lick heeeelllllllllllllpppp

I applaud him for putting his playing up to the scrutinizing eyes on this forum; everyone has to start somewhere. But, don't come across that you know it all is my point. It's all in the delivery.

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

The book that we are all talking about is George L Stone's book, STICK CONTROL. You can find it on Amazon. It shouldn't be more then 7-10 bucks. Hope this helps.

Re: Gadd Lick heeeelllllllllllllpppp

I think what he is trying to say is that you come across bad. If you didn't have the book UP CLOSE in front of you (and probably me in that case) you wouldn't know if the transcription is 100%...

Re: Wrist control

I went to vicfirth and saw it. I guess I didn't understand Class A and what his post said. I thought that he meant tape a tick to the top of your hand and try to use THAT stick to hit the drum. My...

Re: Best bang for the buck! sound quality.

Busta, I would be cautious about deciding on a drum kit because of just the sound of it on youtube. The different micing techniques and gates, compression, etc. can change what a kit sounds like. ...
