Re: Stuck on Stick Control book

This grouping is called an octuplet. It has eight 16th-notes instead of six.

It is interesting to note that the real value of these notes is that of dotted notes, as it is stated in the book, but...

Re: Polyrhythm Metronome App

I have it, if it's the one with the icon displaying 5:3 PolyRhythm
I've had it for years but couldn't say I really used it.
It seems pretty basic, and PolyNome is probably more interesting.

Re: A question on Real Books

As a drummer who also studied a melodic instrument (the cello), it always made sense to actually have lead sheets to learn new songs. I feel I can better follow the song forms as well as the melodies...

Re: Multirhythms limb independence and rhythm training app

What is your app supposed to do?
I downloaded it and tried it for about 30 seconds, and then I erased it.
Maybe I didn't get how great it was!?

James Taylor & Steve Gadd yesterday night

I've been a James Taylor fan since I was 18.

Yesterday was actually the second time I was seeing him in concert, and yesterday's concert was pure magic.

The choice of songs, the band, the sound...

Re: Odd time signature songs for beginners

OK, when you're ready for changing meters, you can try Darlene by L. Shankar (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SpPQB_QHd2w). The first two bars are in 5/8, and then it changes ;-)

Re: Stick Control Page 25 Exercise 13 Roadblock

The first beat is not an 8th note triplet, but just three regular 8th notes in 6/8
Then the second beat is an octuplet (eight 16th instead of six)
The octuplet could also be notated as eight dotted...

Re: Brain fart

Hi Andy

In my opinion, the guitar player makes the mistake of coming in too early while you play your crescendo fill.
It makes you doubt of yourself, but it doesn't mean you were wrong.

The book comes with mp3s, the video doesn't, unless you buy them bundled.

Re: No love for 20" bassdrums?

I love 20" bass drums too!

Years ago, I remember it was difficult to find entry level sets for children/students, with a 20" bass drum and normal size toms (instead of power toms).

My hands are a little too dry, and sometimes for a quick fix I just make my fingers a little wet by licking them, but I normally use Zildjian Drumstick Wax.

Re: Good 'music filming' camera?

I plan to buy a camera, and I was hesitating about the Q4 for quite some time, and then I saw this Canon VIXIA Mini X in a shop about a month ago.
I couldn't test it sound wise, but it looks that it...

Re: New Play-Alongs?

Yes I do have the Big Phat Band Play Along Vol 1, and it looks very good, although I haven't started using it. There's a volume 2 out now, also.
