Never heard of anything specific for lefties...if you stick with it then the right is left stuff should become second nature in a short time.

Re: 50 years ago today...

One of the best records ever, Joshua and Seven Steps are unreal, Tony is just flawless, I don't think I'll ever be able to get over just how amazing he was at that time.

Re: Entry Level Jazz

I prefer playing with the records instead of playalongs, what better way to learn the idiom than by playing with the people who created it? Playalongs are useful but they shouldn't substitute playing...

Re: Entry Level Jazz

Re: Transcribing - love it or hate it?

I transcribe a lot, mostly jazz solos to pick up vocabulary, I think that asides from listening to music, transcribing has helped me the most in learning jazz drumming.

Re: A different way to practice to the metronome.

Sure, that's a helpful way when you're trying to learn a tricky passage, but eventually I would like to be able to play the passage at the biggest subdivision possible, so if I'm learning a 16th note...

Re: Double pedal - a good idea for a beginner?

I get asked this question fairly often and I always say "wait at least a year" you need to get the fundamentals of the HH first, so if you really want it then go for it.

Re: Jazz-tracks without drums library/repository - thread.

Christian Mcbride has an album out that features just duos, him with various other musicians, no drums, I love playing along with some of the tracks, real swinging stuff.

Re: Do you record yourself daily when practicing?

John Riley recommended to not listen to a recording of a gig as soon as possible, say on the way back home or something similar, give it a few days instead to get a clear head and then listen to it.
