Re: Accomplished Drummers Make Bad Records?

If the world was brought up with "muso" music, would it then be accepted because people would be used to hearing that sort of stuff? I think the average person may find "muso" msuic boring simply...

Re: Chris Coleman

Oh man, Chris has incredible power but also great control over dynamics. I love his innovative playing and his great musicality, definitely more than just a gospel drummer.

Re: How many of you use a 20" kick. Not just for jazz but everything you play?

I use a 20" for everything which is mostly rock and metal stuff. It has a nice punch to it.

Why do people like Thomas Pridgen not lose their sticks?

Some drummers are fast and hard hitting. What gets me is that they can hold on to their sticks, even when their hands are probably sweaty. I doubt they are holding on tight because a tight grip to me...

Re: First ever recording session, what an experience.

Yeah it's definitely a good idea to step away from the recording for a day or two and then listen to it again. By then you will be listening to it closer the average person would since you might not...

Re: Hung Up On Technique?

If I thought that way then I wouldn't EVER move on from doing single stroke rolls. You are going to be your harshest critic when it comes to your playing.

Keep working on your technique but work...

Re: Proper way to sit, throne height ?

Mike Mangini mentioned that you should sit with your legs at 90 degrees when your knees are raised at their maximum height. So however high you lift your foot when playing the bass drum or hi-hat,...

Re: Best Way to Learn a Song

I cover a lot of rock and metal songs, for this genre I like to transcribe since it's quite mechanical the way the parts are written. While I haven't delved into funk, jazz, latin etc. I'd say it...

How do you expand your playing?

I learn a lot of patterns, grooves, techniques and such which I do fine when playing just those by themselves but I find that I barely use the majority of what I have learned in my playing.
