Re: Playing fast single handed 16ths (Porcaro style)

You need to identify the tempo in BPM where it falls apart. Let's say this tempo is 85 bpm. So, bring the metronome down to 75 bpm. Point is, you need to bring the metronome and work your way up....

Re: Playing fast single handed 16ths (Porcaro style)

Not sure about this. I use the Vic Firth Cindy Blackman model which is incredibly balanced and great for just about everything. It is the perfect weight, not too heavy and not too light. Like a...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

I think there's a lot of over playing going on in 'In The Wake Of Poseidon' by King Crimson

Re: Drum Beat - Love will lead you back - Taylor Dayne

There's a shaker playing 16ths in the verse, I think that's what's throwing you off. If I had to play this song, I would play quarter notes on the ride and 16ths on the hi hat, kind of like the...

Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

Ab-so-lute-ly. It is VERY true, please don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

The throne, to me, is the most important part of the drum kit, yet the most overlooked. You need a good throne because...

Re: What's the best pedal technique study?

Hey Dre25! I think you might gain a lot from Pedal Control by Famularo/Bergamini/Chamberland, already mentioned here. I've been working out of that book since January and it has been helping me...

Re: How much of your practice time do you spend on one limb at a time?

I spend an hour on my left foot alone. 30 minutes on my left hand. Then 30 minutes on left foot and left hand coordination. I used to spend 2 hours on my left foot.

Re: Advice for a beginner

I also say 'get a teacher'. You can even study with famous/established drummers via Skype, that would be money well spent.

Re: What makes a band?

Well, it is a cover band. The singer does somewhat have "a look", is ok with the stage. I just want to play the songs... that compensate for other people, you know?

Re: What makes a band?

Ok, problem is is that the singer is also the bandleader. So should I just leave the band?

Re: Sick sweat minor 9th drum harmony

That's why I said "scientifically". I don't know about "well-defined".. you can certainly get close. All double headed drums, when struck, produce overtones.

What makes a band?

I say 2 things. A good singer and a good drummer.

But what if you had a good drummer but not so good singer? What do you do?

I found that most of the time, the musicians I usually play with...

Re: Sick sweat minor 9th drum harmony

Scientifically, it is impossible for any drum to have an absolute pitch. This is is because drums have not one but two drum heads. If you were using a single headed tom like Phil Collins did in the...

Re: How do -you- practice?

I agree with Dave Major. It is imperative to go into the practice room WITH A PLAN. If you don't have one, you will be wasting a lot of time and wonder why you're not advancing.

I would suggest...

Re: Playing to click - the mechanics

I disagree with it being "a really controversial issue". Why? I've played TV gigs which required playing to a click, it was mandatory. And what about backing tracks? You will need to be able to play...
