Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

Thanks everyone, the 2 links are very helpful.

Bermuda you're right, it isn't that fast, I just don't shuffle anywhere near enough. It is now on my regular practise routine!

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

They disappeared for a while (which is why my version has the click track still!) but they are back on the site now.

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Here was my very rough very *cough* last minute attempt, mistakes included free of charge. And please be gentle, I had less than a day, and I think judging by the sluggishness my caffeine was...

Re: Help Choose My Focus - Drums or Bass

I'm in the "why not play both?" camp if they both peak your interest. I play 2 instruments, though I do sometimes think I could progress a little quicker and it'd be easier if I focused entirely on...

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Okay it beat me, ran out of time. There's far worse ways to spend 6 hours straight on a bank holiday Monday though!

Good luck to all who entered.

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Bah, only had time to work on this today as been busy since I discovered it a few days ago. If I don't make it on time I'll still post it when I'm done. It's slowly taking shape but doubt I'll hit...

Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

Shuffle feels okay with single strokes to be honest, but I will also try it as double strokes as suggested, but then eventually as you say above, just because I don't like to be beaten ;-)

Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

Thanks guys, I'll try it both ways (doubles or singles); either will prevent my right hand going into a spasm! Or as Jojo would say, stop me going into convulsions ;-)

Mark.

Re: 2015 Guru Snare Competition Entry Details - ENDS SOON!

Thanks :-)
I meant 5 days with 2 auditions coming up and various other things ... but you're right.. If I pull my finger out I might be able to manage it! It will have to be on an electric kit too...

Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

Thanks for the MP3 :-)

What I meant to say was, he seems to be doing the shuffle with one hand, but still putting in the main accent with his left hand. Is that not what you see? He seems to be...

Oh crap, why have I only just found this now?! 5 days is not enough! :-( Serves me right being away from the site so much. Oh well, might be worth a bash!

Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

I'm meant to be auditioning for a band in a week. Most songs they've mentioned are fairly straight forward, like Live and Let Die, that sort of thing.

But they also mentioned Radar Love. Now, is...

Re: How do you cue your live tempos at the gig?

I do it the same way I do at rehearsals. I hear the song in my head, or sometimes quietly sing the melody to myself and feel the tempo from that, then start counting. Never given it much thought...

Re: Acoustic Drums VS Electronic Drum Kits

The DTX 750 I got off eBay for around 800 (about $1180), they retail nearer 2200 here ($3000 ish) but probably cheaper in the states. I'd definitely go 2nd hand though, and make sure you give it a...

Re: Acoustic Drums VS Electronic Drum Kits

I've been on both sides of the fence a few times.

Years ago I had a full mesh kit that I imported from America. It was a Hart Dynamics Pro 6.4 I think, and was meant to be about the most...

Do you plan your fills?

Hi,
I'm working on some original material at the minute with a band I'm in. I'm just wondering, do you guys spend a lot of time with material not only coming up with grooves but also coming up with...

I thought it was great and went into a large amount of detail regarding various techniques,...

Re: Pain on fingers - technique & control

I've long struggled with pains especially in my right hand. One thing I've changed fairly recently that seems to...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

The E-Kit which I picked up for a good price second hand, and on my violin is my new mute to protect the ears of the innocent.

Re: Straight from the horse's mouth.

All the best drummers I've seen seem to use everything, including Buddy. I can't imagine anyone getting decent speed and feeling relaxed by not using their fulcrum, and keeping there fingers still...

Re: Stick angles

Pain not good. If you can, forget Skype and go and find a reputable teacher (i.e. one known to churn out good players). Even if it means traveling a long way once a fortnight.

I used to get...
