Re: Practice Schedule

What he said ^ ! Think of it like any learning process: would you try to learn 6 languages at once, or would you try to master one and use that as a base for the others?

Re: Practice Schedule

You're trying to do too much at once, and thereby spreading yourself too thinly. Focus on one thing at a time. Consult a good teacher. She/he will tell you what you need to work on and give you a...

Re: Traditional Grip Addicts Anonymous. Members Apply Here!

Yep! My matched grip sucks. I only use it when absolutely necessary.

Re: Buddy Rich transcriptions

Good work. Thanks for sharing.

Take a wee look over the fills again, make sure the orchestration right (i.e. some of the floor tom hits you notated are actually bass drums). Here's the...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta research help me!

Well for one thing his creativity is unique. He really pushed the limits of technique with his mastery of polyrhythms, odd time, playing over the bar, irrational subdivisions etc. Yet he still lets...

4 limb blast

Is there a blast beat based on the sticking RH RF LH LF, where the right hand plays a cymbal and the left hand the snare?

Sort of like what Steve Smith plays here from around 2:30 onwards only...

Re: Playing behind the beat

I think it's also a lot to do with mental state rather than metronomic analysis... at least that's how I always thought about it coming from the funk and jazz perspective. You have to feel what it's...

DRUM BREAKS!!!

Hello fellow drummers,

I'm compiling tracks with great drum breaks. I'm looking for breaks that keep the groove a la Stubblefeld, Purdie, Cobham, Gadd and so on, though not necessarily just funk....

Re: German grip stick chopping.

I feel good finger technique is the icing on the cake (some players do use any finger technique!). Focus on the fundamental first: just practice full strokes in German grip, i.e. holding the stick...

Best/worst Fusion Albums

I'm a massive jazz fan and greatly respect the players who later branched out into other genres, but my god is it difficult to find decent fusion music. I'm not talking about the sort of fusion on...

Re: Moeller in traditional grip

I posed exactly the same question to Dom Famularo a while back, with the same examples of Jojo and Jim. His response was "Yes, everyone has a different move within the Moeller movement."

Re: Fusion drummers and Grip?

At some point the muscles are so developed it's not really a problem. I've seen Jojo do everything with the stick the other way round as he does when it's the 'right' way round. Similarly Carlock...

Re: kick beater flutter thread no 1001

Either stuff your kick full or learn to not dig the beater in the head. Steve Smith talks about this, as well as Carlock. There's also a dvd called "Unburying the Beater". The flutter is caused by...

Re: How to get a consistent hi hat sound

watch the slowmotion secion from the d+b clip from jojo mayer's page from the dvd. He uses french grip and rides the hihat like a ride to get a consistent 'programmed' sound. Its harder to do if you...

Re: Trad grip: range w/ L hand wrist (up motion)

Yes the full stroke might still be feeling awkward at this point. Ive now been playing 6.5 years and its fully comfortable for me. Though I cant say I use the full stroke motion all that much.

Re: Swinging straight rolls

The rolls are meant to be buzzed. Don't play double strokes. Second line has a loose feel. Playing double strokes turns it into a military cadence. Play the phrase first without the buzzes, hand to...

Re: Even the best of the best make mistakes too....

Good find. Whats interesting about this is that the phrase Gadd plays works as a variation to coming in on the 1 after a fill. Mistakes can sometimes be effective.

Re: 26'' Bass Drum Help

Headswise you could go for these powerstroke 3 heads.... or you could save yourself some money and play around with the dampening levels: pillows, felt strips etc. Good luck with it!

Re: 26'' Bass Drum Help

I'm sure it would. Though it depends what the amp/micing situation you have in your band is. I think you'd have to get used to it, since it might be easy to overplay and drown out other members....
