Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

I'm pretty sure that Benny Greb can do whatever he wants. If he wants to exactly imitate Gadd playing a Gadd lick, then he has awareness and control of all the micro-dynamics and spacing that would...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Yes, but we're talking about virtuoso drummers imitating each other. You really think that Benny Greb doesn't have the nuance and technique to play a Steve Gadd lick so it sounds exactly like Steve...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Yeah, that's my point. If you were blindfolded didn't know that Dave Weckl was on Gadd's kit playing a Gadd lick as much like Gadd as he could manage - I doubt you'd be able to tell if it was the...

Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Sure, Steve Gadd has a distinct feel, but if you place a very proficient drummer (like Dave Weckl or Benny Greb) on Gadd's exact drum-kit and ask them to play a Gadd lick as much like Gadd as...

Re: Training protocols for increasing speed?

Agree, good technique should be effortless. So, can anyone actually play 250bpm with good technique? Because if they could, they'd be able to sustain a 250bpm floor tom roll for 24 hours straight -...

Re: Training protocols for increasing speed?

Well, I've often heard that good technique should use as little energy as breathing. Breathing does take a degree of energy, but you can easily do it for as long as you live without taking a break....

Re: Training protocols for increasing speed?

But if you feel the burn at ANY point, doesn't that mean your technique is inefficient? A guy who can play at 260bpm should be able to hold an unbroken 260bpm single stroke roll for literally DAYS...

Re: Training protocols for increasing speed?

On a related note, when are you considered to have truly 'mastered' a given tempo?

For example, I could continually play 16th notes at 250bpm for 1 minute. I had a teacher at the time who said...

Training protocols for increasing speed?

I remember, a while back most instructors were saying that 'in order to play fast, you have to master playing slow with PERFECT technique and ZERO tension'. So, if you want to play at 300bpm, then...

Playing different UNRELATED tempo's simultaneously?

Is it possible to play, for example 16th notes at 150bpm on the right hand, 16th notes at 153bpm on the left hand, 16th notes at 171bpm on the right foot and 16th notes at 27bpm on the left foot -...

What do you call the rhythmic change-up in the verses of the Pantera song: 5 Minutes Alone?

Just noticed this song has a really interesting rhythmic change-up in the verses. It's not half time, or triplets, and I don't know what's going on, but it sounds interesting.

Can someone explain,...

Re: Mike Mangini clarifies his hand technique in an interview

Sorry to go all anatomy-geek on you here, but Mangini directly said that the movement was powered by the 'lats' and 'triceps'.

The lats are a muscle in the back and function to extend the upper...

Re: Mike Mangini clarifies his hand technique in an interview

OK, but even if we agree that the finger's aren't the major prime mover in Manigini's technique, you guys seem to be saying that Mangini is driving the stick down with the WRIST.

However, Mangini...

Re: Mike Mangini clarifies his hand technique in an interview

When you watch video of Mangini doing the WFD run, his upper arm is making slow and subtle up and down movements - probably to try to alleviate tension.

If Mangini's power source was actually at...

Re: Mike Mangini Shiver Technique

Check out 6:05 of the following video;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daRNyK5pFHc

Is that shiver technique or finger rebound technique?

Swivel technique vs slide technique

Is the swivel technique basically heel up, using ankle swivel to spread the effort of the calf muscles to prevent technique... or is it the slide technique (as in the slide technique for quick bass...

Re: Is Moeller technique banned from WFD?

Hey, John - Mike seems to be using a different technique (at least ostensibly) from the WFD to the Tim Warp video.

I don't know about the left hand (never played trad grip), but his stick height...

Re: Is Moeller technique banned from WFD?

What I've noticed is that when you play finger technique in a more German (rather than French) grip, when your fingers flex, your wrist naturally flexes too, and this blurs the line between finger...

Re: Is Moeller technique banned from WFD?

Just, looked at footage of Tom Grosset...

It looks like when he plays fast single stroke rolls he uses pure finger technique.

But when he tries to really go for the world record he brings his...

Re: The myth about playing fast and using 'fast twitch' muscles

Yep, but within those small muscles you will be using the SLOW twitch muscle fibres to play fast. You will also be contracting them very frequently, (not necessarily very quickly) in order to play...

I've noticed that drummers will often say you need to build up your fast twitch muscles in order to play faster...

Surely this is false?

Fast twitch muscles does not mean they literally twitch...
