Re: I wish I didn't care when I was younger

I wish I hadn't believed the music teacher at school when I was younger, who told me if I dropped out of drum lessons, I could practice on the school kit whenever I wanted. He lied. And as a result I...

Re: Passing On Experience

If you're told a backline kit has stands, there will be a hi-hat stand with no felt and, if you're lucky, two cymbal stands, also without felts and usually with no screws. But often there will only...

Re: Best shuffles?

Sorry about derailing the shuffle thread, by the way.

Re: Best shuffles?

Oh, yeah, I love his stuff. I've also managed to get hold of his Trout Mask Replica tribute as well. The last thing he did was a couple of songs on an album by The Vicar, which I think was a Robert...

Re: Best shuffles?

Absolutely agree. I've got tons of Lewis' stuff, rarities, bootlegs. Have you ever heard his version of Heart of the Sunrise? It's the funniest thing I've ever heard.

Ash, ushered me into the drum...

Re: Play While Standing Up

One of the great soul and funk drummers, Quinton Joseph played standing up. He played with Tyrone Davis, Curtis Mayfield, the Chi-Lites, The Staples, and more. Jim Payne asked him in Give The...

Re: Those of you who use less cymbals...

Ride and one crash for me. I used two crashes for a gig the other week and realised as I was breaking down that I didn't use the second one at all.

Re: Best shuffles?

Always loved Ash's playing. I was at a UK drum academy one year where he taught and he's a lovely bloke. I asked him about his time with the mysterious UK soul singer Lewis Taylor (now retired)....

Re: At which point do polyrhythms stop sounding cool and start sounding academic?

It is an odd choice for a Seventies disco/dance song, but all the more interesting for it.

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

And another well known sample, and is it any wonder. The late great John 'Jabo' Starks on drums. I would say Jabo has been a bigger influence on my playing than Clyde. The way he swings the groove,...

It's a neat groove. And that's Clyde again.

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

He stops slightly too late when it goes into the Clap Your Hand section. But those killer ghost notes before and after the back beat just roll along effortlessly.

How about Unwind Yourself by...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

I absolutely love it when the rest of the band don't lift a finger to help you load all your gear in, then ask how long you'll think you'll be to set up.

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

I'm also reminded me of Steve Cropper's interview about Al Jackson in the Jim Payne book Give The Drummers Some, where he says the amount of times he sees bands performing Green Onions and the...

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

I can swing Jabo's James Brown and JB's funk grooves easily enough because, as you know, I've totally immersed myself in James Brown, studied and studied songs like Soul Power, Superbad, Sex Machine,...

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

Interesting that. I have the same kind of block. I can play that double there every time, so why do I have trouble playing the exact same pattern here?

The way that helps me to play Tony Allen's...

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

Even if I practiced just that one song for months on end, I still don't think I'd do it justice.

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

Hook & Sling is a tough, tough groove to get right. One of the great early hip-hop breakbeats, too.

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

No problem, my friend. I've always thought the toughest Clyde groove is Mother Popcorn, with all those ghost notes before and after the backbeat, AND he's playing quarter notes on the hi-hat, which...

Re: What are some of the coolest beats tha you've ever heard?

No problem. Here's a Beau Dollar solo track with another wicked funk groove, although illustrated with the wrong record label.
