Re: Notation

Just try to make things look like it's printed. Over time you'll develop speed while maintaining quality and intelligibility.

Re: Pros vs. Average Joe's

I've no idea. I'm a professional drummer and I know plenty of hobbyists who could play circles around me... yet here I am, paying the bills by playing the gigs.

Re: Snare buzz

I've never stumbled upon a snare without a snare bed. My Acrolite has one and I doubt Ludwig removed the all important feature from their newer models.

Snare buzz is an integral element of a kit's...

Re: If and when to move on from a routine

First read and learn what to play. Then, as soon as possible, ditch the notes and make it your own -- vary the dynamics, tone, orchestration, phrasing. Check occasionally whether you're still playing...

Re: Should I give up this hobby for drumming?

Quitting after getting a black belt is just as arbitrary as quitting after a red belt. The black belt signifies the true beginning of your journey as a martial artist -- it signifies that you have...

Re: Applying Paradiddles and drags/ghost notes

Just orchestrate them around the kit. Take the paradiddle, for instance. You could:

1. play the accents around the kit and everything else on the snare
2. play the Rs around the kit and Ls on the...

Re: Comping: John Riley - Art of Bop Drumming questions.

A nice way to apply the comping exercises is to play the two bars as written and improvise another two bars -- a short call and response. To make the phrases a bit different, change the amount of...

Re: Never bend below the wrist? (Arthritis/carpal)

Downward bend is an integral aspect of the Moeller stroke, and a bit of downward arching is useful for rebound control when playing downstrokes. For overall playing, though, keep your wrists more or...

My two-year-old can sing and play the drums, piano, guitar and bass rhythmically, and I'm quite certain that she hasn't a clue about the "theories of rhythm".

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

You don't need exercises to learn songs. Learning the drum parts of those songs will act as exercises themselves. If you can't play them yet, you can simplify (play less or play slower) and practice...
