Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

This video deserves it's own discussion thread. Very important advice from a guy with great soloing chops but crucially with the discipline to know when to reel it in.

Re: sixteenths on hats?

Tom Sawyer by Rush would be a good example of 16ths with one hand played with a straight 'linear feel' with no accents. Listen to that if you haven't heard it yet. It's famous as song amongst...

Re: Indie Cindy - Pixies help!!!

This song is explained in a drumming magazine (Rhythm magazine) that just happens to be beside me right now so I'll quote it word for word for you now.

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

Those more advanced fill in triplet coordination exercises in that book lose me completely. No matter how many times I read Alans instructions, I can't figure out the method used to play it. I'd need...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

As I previously stated, the demand is there for those DJs to earn that money. Simple economics.

Another out of touch of opinion. People are hardly going to pay good money for an event with music that doesn't appeal to them. Maybe some will but many won't.

Thanks. Doing this at the moment.

Maybe. I've never had any pains after gigging over the last while. I think I should have taken more breaks during the sessions.

Re: Amazing (old) studio footage - Simon Phillips with The Coors :)

It's The Corrs, if I can correct you there. :) I gig in the town they're from quite a bit.

Never played a double pedal in my life.

Wouldn't mind getting one because I listen to a good bit of prog metal and would like to give some of that a shot.
