Larnell Lewis

Amazing drummer I just got turned on to via youtube... Always surprised by folks I've never heard of. The irony is that he's played on a couple albums I have, but I just never read the liner notes.

Re: Advice on books - African, Brazilian, Latin

Royal Hartigan's book is awesome. He's got a bunch of great youtube videos now as well playing them all. There is another good book of West African Rhythms by a guy named Moktar Samba (I think)... He...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

This whole thread is weird to me. Most of the time when someone uses trickery to promote themselves, we run them out on a rail and lock the thread.

The drumming and production is far from...

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

I start taking my cymbals down before the guitar player turns his amp off. My stuff is packed and in my car ASAP. There is absolutely no reason for me to stay at a venue once I'm done playing. No one...

Re: Anyone have tips for syncing video and audio?

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm trying to avoid jumping around from program to program too much. I did that with DAW's for years before I finally learned how to just stick with Ableton. Is dual eyes a...

Thatís probably what Iíll end up having to do since the guitars are going back in separately to fix solos etcÖ I just setup 3 still cameras facing individuals in different rooms. Iím hoping quick...

Hey all, I've been in the studio a bunch over the last year or so and have really wanted to make a well-edited multi-camera video of a recording. Does anyone have a youtube tutorial link they'd...

Re: Drums - the stage prop du jour (Grammies content)

Wow... I just watched the Metallica performance. Ugh. Maybe it was the sound on youtube, but it almost sounded like the guitars weren't even tuned to the piano correctly. I grew up firmly in the...

Re: Musicians who don't want to rehearse

My thinking is that any band who is rehearsing more than 3 hours a week is probably mostly made up of kids under 20 years old, or is not gigging at all.

At least they stated that at the outset. Better to lay your cards on the table early than create drama later.

Re: Michael Beinhorn fires drummers.

I would feel weird if I couldn't perform the music we wrote. Usually, by the time a piece is going to be recorded, everyone has kind of put their individual stamp on it in terms of parts. I've had...

Re: Reggae Drumming

Bob Marley IS basic reggae... It is like the gospel of reggae. The feel is all right there, nothing hidden at all. That is literally where most of the drum sound was developed for modern reggae...

Re: Covers vs Originals... Help required !!!
