Re: BPM recall ability

Bermuda speaks the truth! I use familiar tunes as well as signposts.. my favourite example is "Brown Eyed Girl' at 150bpm. I'm sure we've all had it burned into our heads!
I started doing it many...

Re: Basic Paradiddle Combinations

Yes those are lot's of fun.. the inversions and sextuplet parradiddles are what that Benny Greb fill might have been inspired from.. they create a cool phrasing over the bar depending on the...

Re: Help with Benny Greb Fill!!!!

Nice fill! 'Just sextepluts' plus some Benny Greb magic Lol! The pattern reminds me a bit of playing paradidles as a triplet or sextuplet phrasing. With foot substitutions and toms thrown in.

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

How do you like the Oak Custom? I was looking at one the other day online for 250$.. it looks like it has a 14 x 7" deep shell and is in great shape. Worth taking a look at?

Re: Another *&^%$# Bar Owner

That's one reason why I hate booking gigs.. the communication is often a major hassle. Either the booking manager is not available or can't provide information etc. etc. I tend to look for bands that...

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

I've played a lot of snares in my time.. one thing that always surprizes me is the mythical qualities given to the Supraphonics. I played a 5 1/4x14" Supra in high school in a variety of bands.. and...

Re: Who uses Moongel?

Lot's of Pros use it or other damping techniques as just another tool in the box to dial in the sound they're after. Used sparingly, I find it can help focus the sound a bit. Cut into small strips.....

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

When I saw the trailer I wasn't sure if it was a comedy or a drama.. as the teacher was so over the top it looked like a spoof of all those sports movies where someone rises from the ashes to conquer...

Re: Great car for a drummer

I've been driving a Volvo XC70 for about 8 years and will probably drive the thing for another 8 years! It's indestructible, reliable and boots like a rocket.. it's also the ultimate winter driving...

Re: Singing and playing?

I'm just a background singer, but I continually practice singing techniques to improve... finding the perfect pitch and tone, knowing when to jump to the O-voice, breathing, head, chest, gut voice.....

Re: Country drummers!

Agreed - nothing shallow at all! I'm constantly on the lookout for great modern country tunes that have lyrics that aren't about trucks and dixie cups. Maybe that's why Miranda Lambert cleans up at...

Re: Steve Jordan .... yeah ... watch it !

AT one point I studied all of Steve Jordans grooves and licks.. a great way to 'up your game' as he is chock full of tasty fills and funky riffs - whatever the genre.

Re: Snare size for ghost notes
