Re: How to naturally play quieter?

I think Todd hits the nail on the head. Curly Haired Drummer, since you mentioned a natural way to play quieter: Stick heights, Moeller, Freestroke - IMO that’s a natural way to play. I think...

Re: Cast metal snares.

IĒm really not sure how the sound of a drum changes as you go up in mass - say 3mm to 4mm... It may depend on the type/quality of the metal, edges, etc.

Re: Cast metal snares.

Heavier gauge shells tend to project more. I have a 3mm steel Keplnger and itís the loudest drum I own. It also has the most body and fatness - something you wouldnít expect from a thicker shell.

Re: Jazz/Funk Books/DVD's

For Jazz - Jim Blackleyís The Essence of Jazz Drumming. For everything else I really like Kim Plainfieldís Advanced Concepts. He covers a lot of different styles and techniques.

Thatís great, John - I definitely like to switch between being right on the click, and playing off of it.

Re: Exercises to hit the 'middle' of a beat?

Experience with other players and recording those sessions will help a lot.

Re: Using tuning to muffle 18" bass?

Iíve been kind of an Evans fan for a while now - I use one of those Frosted EQ4 batter heads and and EQ3 or 1 reso. Nothing in the drum, no muffling, and I can always get a nice round, full sound...

Re: Performance practice Wilcoxin

~110-120 is a typical tempo for rudimental solos (in 2/4) ~72-86 (in 6/8). But again, I donít think itís about playing the solos fast, but playing them well. When Philly Joe Jones would teach from...

Re: Focusing on finger control or wrist control?

Like Jeff said - it all starts with the Freestroke. Find a teacher that really understands that concept and youíll have a great foundation. As a beginner, also check out matched grip.

Re: I can't believe how much I sucke when it comes to soloing.
