Re: question for double bass players

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

It would have been rude for me not to reply to the statement directed at me.

Your logic fails. And now my work here is done.

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

In my experience, it makes no difference. So I stopped caring a long time ago. Spend 5 minutes reading Youtube comments and you will feel the same way :)

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Then you can classify them as either stupid and/or ignorant and ignore them anyway :).

I actually looked at John's profile and saw that he claims to be a retired radio broadcaster. So he's used...

This is hilarious. You people get worked up so easily over obvious trolls!

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Yes, that's right. Nobody can play exactly like Buddy, because they play like themselves. Why were you expecting them to sound like Buddy?


I doubt it, I reckon more people know about Travis...

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

Now that you put it into words, that's the truth for me as well!

To Dahoros,
I think the main thing for you is that as Larry mentioned, you probably still think like a rock drummer. The benefits...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Thank goodness, you said something that is reasonable and logical. I agree with you. And in some way, I agree with you about Lang - to be honest I'm not a huge fan of his playing, as good as he is....

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

I said musicality is subjective. You might not like Dave Weckl's sound, but I do. Does that make you right? No, it means your opinion is that you don't like him (I'm not saying whether you do or...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Ignorance of the existence of world-class drummers is not my fault.

Here are five drummers off the top of my head who are either technically or musically equal or superior, or both. Although...

Buddy Rich was a great drummer, highly influential, a great pioneer, a great showman, and a great musician.

But the greatest drummer that ever lived?

No. Not...

Re: Mike Mangini's 'The Grid' DVD - does explain the shiver technique?

Boomka, please go back and read my posts and you'll see I never mentioned ANYTHING about "wrist thickness"... Where on earth did you get that from?

I said I believe that Mike has naturally FAST...

Re: Mike Mangini's 'The Grid' DVD - does explain the shiver technique?

Boomka, what I mean is that there are definitely some drummers who seem to have a much higher natural aptitude for speed than others. For example - when I was a teenager I had a friend who was not a...

Re: Mike Mangini's 'The Grid' DVD - does explain the shiver technique?

Honestly, I would strongly suggest not getting so hooked up on technique.

Mangini is one of those people who seems to be gifted with naturally fast wrists, and this obviously works to his...

Re: Get off your drummer's throne and

I'm not really sure if that's a backhanded compliment or not, so if so, thanks!

Re: How to play 4 against 7

Smoothoperator, you're wrong.

It is indeed a polyrhythm.

It doesn't matter if you can write it in 7/4 or not. What you have is a pattern of 4 notes playing along with a pattern of 7 notes...

Re: Practicing everything with both hands

I try to play open-handed (ie. left-hand lead) as much as I possibly can.

I do switch back to leading with my right on the hihats when I trickier sections to play, or in a live or studio session...

Re: Another great clip from Virgil

I got to see the 4/5/6/7 thing in person a few years back... 2010 maybe? Anyway, I'm not trying to one-up you, but seeing and hearing what he plays in person when you're only a couple of metres away...
