Re: What's the best things about your playing?

One of the best things about my playing is my ability to play fast passages in time and in proper musical context. This should also indicate what one of the worst aspects of my playing has been over...

Re: Al Jackson jr break in Turn You Loose. . . sounds simple . . .

That notation is quite correct rhythmically and i'm sure you can fill in the orchestration from there. Google free staff paper print a sheet and grab a pencil.

Re: Best drum music notation software

Thats a watered down version of Sibelius. I use Finale and i find getting drum notation out of it frustrating as hell but i find that Sibelius is just as hard and that the watered down versions of...

Re: A thought about definitions

I fail to see how they would not understand the music. It doesnt exactly use different musical materials you know. That is another thing that confuses me. People tell me about how rock was...

A thought about definitions

When i was in college I had one of those moments where a teacher said something which completely confirmed the way i had always defined pop music that i never questioned it. Until i got out of school...

Re: Too smart for my friends?

I can sort of relate to this. As i listen to a song my brain creates a score of it and i study it. I've always done that since i had learned to read, it's actually how i enjoy listening. Deep...

Re: Tabs Vs. Traditional Notation

That looks worse than guitar tabs. I am dismayed. I can understand and have used hybrid notation systems (think a mix of traditional notation for the bits of the piece that cn be notated that way and...

Re: Tabs Vs. Traditional Notation

I cannot agree more with that statement. To my guitar students' dismay i still cant read tabs comfortably but sit me down with the same thing fully notated and i can read it and play it faster than...

Re: Musicians who don't listen to music.

Well, theres over 10,000 years of music to listen too that was written before 2000. The last 800 years or so are readable in various modern notation systems. I don see how he could get bored, or how...

Re: Help with Green Day Song? (When I come around)

Just played this song with my 6th grader drum student today in a concert (I was on guitar). She nailed it. Listen to the Song not the drum part. Just follow the other players and hit the accents with...

Re: Names of the drums and cymbals - origins? etymology

Sort of. A gong has a definite pitch whereas a tam tam does not.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I'm a 4 piece guy but i too share this opinion. My favorite kit is a 20 13 16. It was a standard configuration when it was made. I can deal with a 20 12 14 kit but it I prefer the older standard. I...

Re: Any brass arrangers amongst us?

Post some PDF's of your brass parts and we'll be in a better position to help. Well, full score would be better. It's hard to help someone with writing when there is nothing to read to get the idea....

Re: Will anyone ever write another 'classic'

Re: Will anyone ever write another 'classic'

This! However i think you also missed a key component that all those songs have in common and that is extremely fine compositional craftsmanship. Musical composition is a craft like any other. I've...

Re: One for the teachers - Must listen songs for drummers?

I dont really have must listen songs. I tend to show all my students Sing Sing Sing but that is really because Krupa is my all time favorite and he is historically significant in terms of modern...

Re: Demotivated. How do you freshen up?

My way of rekindling the passion for drumming or any other instrument is to focus on another instrument for a bit. Saturation happens. When i'm in a good phase i do a pretty good drumming session...

Re: Double bass opinions

Re: Help ME??

Another vote for the Yamaha. But then I've never gotten along with either Tama Rockstars or Paiste 302s. I do like B8's for the most part as far as budget cymbals go. Also another on upgrading the...

Re: Is one genre of music really harder to play than another

There are really only 2 genres of music. Sacred and Profane. In both it depends on the piece being played and the drummer playing it. Someone said something about "Jazz" rhythms being more complex....

Re: Drum beat in this music

It's a slow 4/4 with the guitars doing mostly sixteenths. I'd try sixteenths on the ride and play around with bass and snare alternations in sixteenths plus some tasteful syncopations here and there...
