Re: How did you start getting "loose" on difficult fills?

This is perfect advice. I practiced all of the rudiments on my drum set when I was 12 years old.
And I did it while practicing to music. It has served me well for almost 60 years.

Re: Need some help choosing a snare.

I'm assuming that you (the OP) currently have a snare drum.
My advice is this.
Buy a new Diplomat Hazy or Evans 200 2mil reso head. Tighten it up real tight.
Buy a new Evans G1 coated or Remo...

Re: How did you start getting "loose" on difficult fills?

Listen to lots and lots of music. Don't just hear the music. Listen very hard and deep.

Then someday when you are playing a song, drum fills will come into your mind.
You will feel what fits...

Re: Real-life examples of rudiments applied to drumset?

I've always used lots of drags and flams in my fills. Especially short fills.

Re: This morning's challenge!

I agree!

And this thread reminds me why I love my 63’ Slingerlands. Because they have adjustable dampening mufflers built right into the drums.

I use three cymbals. (Well, 5 counting my hi hat.)
I use a 22 inch crashable ride for low crashes.
I use a medium sounding crash for medium crashes.
I use a high sounding crash for high crashes....

May favorites are: My Dad, Gene Krupa, Buddy...

Re: What makes an adorable drummer?

Yeah well, one time I tried bobbing my head and playing.

Re: Doing what comes naturally

I agree 100% with WhoIsTony.
I've been "Moellering" for at least 60 years.
Although I had a great teacher, showing me how to practice on a pillow, when I first started playing.
