Re: Not enough loud or too loud?

I've read more then once about the old timers playing big band back in the day. They all put time into discussing how hard it was to come to terms with the dynamics of playing with a big band. At...

Re: help with open stroke roll!

After reading this I realize I misread your first answer since I had heard and used open and closed stroke. Regardless, what you wrote here is worthy of publication. You concisely sum up how...

Re: Swing factor question for jazz players

Bookma,

I couldn't agree more which is my point. If all you do is "listen to" and play on top of the music then you're limiting yourself.

I don't know if you remember the thread I'm referring...

Re: Swing factor question for jazz players

I had never seen this Zoro clip. It's a great clip. A similar discussion came up a few months back and some were saying, "just listen to the music." It was impossible to explain that listening to the...

Re: For anyone who wants to know how to get power with fast double bass

If this is something you're in to, give ski boots a shot. Downhill, not cross country.

Re: help with open stroke roll!

For what it is, or isn't worth, I have a lot problems with PAS. That makes no difference here, but consider this:

From PAS,

In 1979, the PAS Marching Percussion Committee appointed the PAS...

Re: help with open stroke roll!

It's a big deal to me. It's important to me that I have these nuances right and as you've shown, this wasn't something open for discussion. It's a mistake I won't make again and I appreciate that.

Re: help with open stroke roll!

Bookma,

You have corrected me and I should have known better. In my defense, I was weened on and used the terms open and closed "stroke" rolls, but that's not an excuse for not knowing Stone...

Re: help with open stroke roll!

I'm with you Ken. Never heard of an open roll. I have come across an "open ended" roll for a drum line which means to play as fast as the slowest drummer will allow.

For the OP, to put concisely...

Re: Are you one of them?

I just read an interview with the drummer from Underoath in Modern Drummer. Apparantly he is a very hard player, but he also discusses the blood and tearing his hands up while playing. To me, that...

Re: Why Is There Such An Anti-Jazz Vibe Here?

Phase shift effect with drums

I heard Itchygoo Park (sp?) by the Small Faces on the radio this morning and it reminded me that I've always wondered how phase shifting is done with drums? Unlike a guitar where the entire signal is...

Re: music degrees

This is really your big question to answer for yourself. There are so many options and different schools specialize, or are known for their concentrations which effects the "percieved" value of the...

Re: "Technical Music"

Some thoughtful answers. I appreciate the thoughts. I didn't necessarily think there is a right or wrong answer to this, just curious to what others thought.

I spoke to a friend today that plays...

"Technical Music"

I'm curious of how others define this. I was talking to a metal drummer at a GC earlier that said he plays "technical" music. After talking to him more he defined his music as "technical" because of...

Re: improving hihat musicality/technique

Check out Steve Jordan's video. He doens't specifically discuss the hi-hat, but watch the video and see how many different ways he uses one. It seems as though he changes it's set up for every song...

Re: Time Signature

Interesting discussion, but to throw a wrench into what's been written. Those that have spent anytime marching fundamentally know the difference between 4 and 8. Play some 6/8 and 4/4. One...

Great stuff here Bookma. I'm not really sure it is another tangent. What you wrote highlights what I see as the difference between PAS and NARD.

Your first paragraph is really interesting. From...

Re: Excellent Lesson on George Lawrence Stone's 'Stick Control' [Video]

No, I read your post, but I can see how you took what I wrote the way you did. I understand that you like videos, but imo it is far from being the "best lesson" on Stone's book that has been posted...

Re: Excellent Lesson on George Lawrence Stone's 'Stick Control' [Video]

No offense, but there's nothing in the video that hasn't been said here a number of times by a number of different people. Glad you liked it though.

Re: Which stick type do you use, and do you change it with differing styles

For marching I use Vic Firths Scott Johnson signature stick. For playing a kit I switch between Firths Jack Dejonette and Buddy's signature sticks.
