Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

Man, that is a really depressing outlook on things. I just don't buy it, and I'm a "professional teacher", as you say, as I'm sure many people on this thread are. To go about your job day in and...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

I think D is your best option.

I know it's splitting hairs, but for some reason "rent" rubs me the wrong way. Rather than charging your band mates rent, I would just agree that you'll be taking a...

Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

First, if you're not doing it yet/anymore, you should take some lessons yourself no matter how good you are. Get ideas from the person or people that are teaching you. It sounds like you just...

Re: SLOWING DOWN YOUTUBE VIDEOS

I am familiar with Audacity but have never tried it. Transcribe is only 20 bucks, and then you get all the new versions for free forever. I bought it 10 years ago. It's just made by one guy. I...

Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

A little time off can be really good, especially for the brain. Three months is way too long for my taste, but whatever works for you is cool.

Personally, I find that I atrophy pretty quickly. ...

Re: Blushda fill - drum lesson

I could hear you fine, but I had to ride the volume because the drums were then REALLY loud. Maybe consider using two separate mice. That way you can duck them in post.

Re: Can you practice buzz roll on a drumpad?

Snare drum is certainly your best bet, but there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to practice it on a pad.

To cut down on the gap a little bit it might be worth investing in a QuietTone pad. ...

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I was dumb and spent quite a few years in rock bands and drum and bugle corps without ear plugs. Luckily I wised up up fairly early in my twenties and had a set of custom molded ear plugs made. ...

Re: SLOWING DOWN YOUTUBE VIDEOS

Another option is to download Transcribe. I know you said you wanted to avoid downloading software, but it's a great program that I use a lot.

You can download the video from YouTube with KeepVid...

Re: Tom-inique Technique

That is pretty interesting, but that seems like a lot of money to drop and a lot of space to take up for a such a specialized instrument. You're not going to take that on your next wedding gig. And...

Re: Tom-inique Technique

If you want the sound to be as authentic as possible buy repinique. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it too much. If you're clearly playing a drum set version of a repinique part, just play it on...

Re: To transcribe or not?

I do both, and think there is something to be said for each way of doing things.

More often than not I'll write things out first and then learn it. But sometimes I like to work backwards. I once...

Re: "The Low End Theory" Exercise Routine

The obvious answer would be a metronome, but that would defeat the purpose of practicing with songs.

Dig around on your iTunes or online for songs that are closer to the tempo you want. Give or...

Re: Developing the samba suingue.

Yep, Suingue is just Portuguese for Swing. Sound like "Sue-ing-gee" (with a hard G, like in geese)

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

To my mind, if you're sounding like crap when you practice that's most likely a good thing. You're not spending your time playing things you're already comfortable with. Rather, you're stepping...
