Re: Ghost notes and shell material (snare)

Ha!! My point was made..........but amongst the gloating, bleating and downright bombast, it's also important for me to mention that, your point wasn't lost either mate.

Re: Ghost notes and shell material (snare)

So I take it the reason that guys like Porcaro and Gadd are/were so incredibly dynamic, creative and musical with their use of ghosts and accents was largely down to the fact that they put far more...

Re: Suggestions for an intermediate Drummer?

The first thing I'd advise a 15 year old who's just developing an interest in playing music to do is, to find a few like minded people of similar age and experience levels and just make some music...

Re: Losing an eye to a hi hat rod, injury and prevention

I would think that engaging as few as three of my most useless brain cells should be safe guard enough. But if that's a bridge too far, then maybe a warning sticker to the effect of : DO NOT IMPALE...

Re: seamlessly switching between singles and doubles around the kit

Two successive rights (or lefts) by very definition is a double stroke.....whether you use controlled bounce, fingers, moeller or two distinct wrist motions to achieve it......if you play what's...

Re: seamlessly switching between singles and doubles around the kit

Yes. It's how you develop control. Ultimately it'll be vitally beneficial to your hands.

Play it as slow as you need to in order to absorb the pattern. Speed it up as you become more competent at...

Re: Favorite floor tom size and why?

Re: Advice please?

If it were me, I'd simply tell him harden the $%#@ up and stop acting like a three year old child.....concealed weapon or not......and then I wouldn't spend another second worrying about it.

Re: 5.5x14 Black Beauty?

Bingo. It's common to see 5.5" listed and it's almost always an incorrect measurement.

Ludwig USA don't make a 5.5" shell. Only shells outsourced from Asia (eg Supralites etc) offer that depth....

Re: What's your favorite drumset category? Drums, cymbals or hardware

Whilst I love the variety of cymbals I've collected over the years, I could never say that cymbal...

Not at all.

But given it was little more than an obvious gentle ribbing, it's pretty clear that I've hurt yours.
