STEVIE WONDER!

I was listening to Higher Ground this morning, which inspired me to listen to Sir Duke, which inspired me to find out more about SW's drum kit. I've always loved SW's drumming and grooves.

Re: Best drum teacher in youtube

After watching Bill Bachman's latest Hand to Hand flams YouTube video, I'm simply in awe (again) of how clear his instructional videos are to watch, as he takes the time to explain each step of the...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

I try to keep my fingers in harmony with the rhythm, and the singers in harmony with the fingers.

Re: Some Fine Blues Drumming early 60s

Just realized that Junior Wells' drummer, "Below", used a kit with only 1 cymbal--to crash and ride.
I wonder what cymbals were used then-- perhaps a 20" or 21" Zildjian ride, one that was lighter...

Classic recordings, clear audio and video from American Folk Blues Festivals, '63-'66.

Re: groove vs chops?

I was referring to your average non-pro player. My original teacher was a jazz drummer so I could see those skills intact. Watching pros pick up new things on the fly so quickly is what makes them...

Re: groove vs chops?

I continue to work on both groove and chops with no end in sight.
Except for the unusually gifted, there are no shortcuts for your average musician (such as myself) and I can't comprehend how some...

Re: Best drum teacher in youtube

I've learned quite a few grooves by watching Jared and downloading his transcriptions.
He is no nonsense, with non-ego, clear instructions, and fun to watch!
You don't need a world-class drummer to...

Re: The session guys!

Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Hi Bill B:
I am transitioning from a lifetime of playing heel down to more of the heel up style. It's taken quite a while since my lower back muscles weren't engaging in heel down and control is...

For stick technique and rudiments, Bill Bachman.
He doesn't have all his videos for free on YT, but there's a lot. I took his 2 week free course offer to soak up and download his lessons as much as...

Losing a Cymbal Wingnut at Tangelwood Live

Ever happen to you live? Looks like Danny's ride cymbal wing-nut got lost on the floor while changing his cymbal and adjusting the stand in-between songs.
I've been wanting to upgrade my stock ones...

My Club Date SE bass drum seems to fit fine in my 20 x 14 Ahead Armour bag by just folding down the spurs.

New Sonor Safari's trade for $389 and used way less than that. They are easily tweaked to give big sounds by simply changing the stock heads. I love my set and use it in small venues. The 16 x 16...
