Re: ...and a flute is just a tube with holes in it...

Oh, how I utterly, utterly hate that shit. Really. I'm playing with this singer-songwriter, and while I really enjoy her music, I don't have a raging clue what the hell she wants from me. Even worse,...

Re: If there was one band you could sub on drums for who would it be...

The New Cool Collective. Dutch latin/funk/jazz, sometimes extended to bigband, and very interesting to play. Check it out at www.newcoolcollective.nl (also in English).

Re: Drumless jazz??

Try the Oscar Peterson Trio ft. Stan Getz, good record to get started. Also, John Riley's Bop Drumming books have great playalongs, way better than groove essentials. Keep your eyes open, there are...

Re: best afrocuban album?

Don't forget Chico O'Farrill and his orchestra :-)

Re: I'm backwards, but am I wrong?

That depends. Of course there's not such as thing as 'wrong' as long as you're not hurting yourself, but I doubt whether it is very useful. Traditional grip is a leftover from old school marching...

Re: the future of jazz, is it a dead end for me?

Bernard, I think you're misreading my examples. I like Danny Gottlieb, I like his playing on the BB records, but his instructional DVD for Basix is a great example of a jazz drummer not really...

Re: the future of jazz, is it a dead end for me?

That is just utter crap from every dimension, sorry. One, it assumes that only musicians enjoy jazz while the rest of the world doesn't. That is a gross underestimation of jazz popularity and...

Re: Jess Lidyard Hi-Hat Pattern On Tubeway Armys "Are Friends Electric"

Okay, well, I'm afraid its just a matter of practicing :-) I remember being stuck with Sting's Seven Days for ages before I got my right hand to play that pattern. It's fairly similar to this song in...

Re: Jess Lidyard Hi-Hat Pattern On Tubeway Armys "Are Friends Electric"

Ehm, what part of the song?

[edit]If you mean from the start, those are just straight 16th notes with accents every 8th note. I'd say he plays normal upstroke/downstroke, but there's no way of...

Re: Are Jazz Drummers Overrated?

It's ALWAYS better :-) If you're a good drummer, you seek the interplay with that percussive sound. The double bass dictates the swing together with your ride and hihat, so in that sense it does...

Re: Are Jazz Drummers Overrated?

That might be the case, and Sean Reinert is definitely a great drummer, but this has nothing to do with jazz whatsoever. Polyrhythmic playing and having some dynamics is not the same as jazz, really....

Re: Worst idea in Drumming

Anyone remember the Doppelstick? The internet doesn't give me much, but it was a stick with an extra tip on a hinge. Too bad no one ever learned how to use one, including its inventor.

Re: Moller with weak hand

I'd have to look it up, but as soon as I got I'll e-mail you. The article was basically a criticism of some things Virgil Donati said in an interview, if that rings any bells.

Re: Moller with weak hand

Keep me in the loop. I got interested in Spivack after an article in a Dutch drumming magazine, but I have yet to find a good way to study it. I have stick control, but I've got the feeling there's...

Glad that it helped :-) Now we're on the subject anyway, do you know any good videos for explaining Spivack grip?

Re: Pop Drummers

Steve Jordan!

Tasteful playing and good showmanship in one, and distinguishable from many others.

Re: how to get the crispiest snare sound

Also, tune the reso head really tight and then loosen the four screws next to the wires just a tiny bit. Less ring, more crack. Make sure you do not over-tune the batter head, because if its too high...

Re: Your Favourite Band That is Not Well Known

Hazmat Modine! Great folk/blues out of New York, they write great songs and have stunning live shows, but apparently people haven't found them en masse yet.

Re: Alcohol and playing

Alcohol and drugs might make for inspired songwriting, but it is VERY clear whether anyone of any of those bands have been drinking while on stage - it always sucks. By the way, for me the best...

Re: Most Difficult Song

That's Organic Shadows. It isn't that hard if you write it down, sounds way more complex than it actually is. Same goes for Stengah for example.

The hardest song? I'm Tweeked by Vinnie Colaiuta of...

Belgian company, best stave shells in Europe if you ask me. Not cheap though, but worth it.

My original question was for fills that are just so absolutely stunning in terms of timing, feeling and dynamics that songs become worth listening to just for that fill. Yes, I know that a lot...
