Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

Well I definetly study/understand the freestroke and rebound. After I posted I kind of looked at it and went "duh". Should have just deleted the question.

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

I think you misunderstood the question. I understand the stick heights stay 2-3" if you're not playing the cresendo. By 'up' position I didn't mean all the way up as if you were doing 2-50 for the...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

So when you say the Gladstone method of stick control, do you mean that the stick should always be in the "up" position? So with 2-3" stick heights the hand should be closed at the top and after a...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

Ummmmm.... what's wrong with thumbs facing up? Isn't that the french grip? Nearly every jazz player I've seen play has their thumbs facing up when playing ride patterns. Just look at the picture...

Re: How much do you jazz drummers spend on your foot work?

Well he didn't specify one way or the other (speed, coordination, ect.), and if you're insuating that I'm being defensive I would have to disagree. He asked how much time jazz drummers spend on...

Re: How much do you jazz drummers spend on your foot work?

I spend quite a bit of time on my feet, I don't use a double bass pedal but I incorporate my hi-hat into my phrasing and comping all the time. (opposed to just 2 and 4) You presume not very much? ...

Re: Playing jazz well on the drumset

Gettin the Beyond Bop Drumming book IS a good idea, but if you're just starting out playing Jazz it's going to be very, very hard. It immediately starts off with 3 voice comping techniques (using...

Re: Playing jazz well on the drumset

Usually Jazz players use the french grip for the ride cymbal....i.e. thumb up. When playing fast jazz patterns, you use one arm motion for every three strokes, the moeller essentially.

Re: Playing jazz well on the drumset

Everyone that has posted so far has given you great advice concerning beginning Jazz playing, but I thought I'd throw in some stuff for you to do once you've got the basics covered.

When I...

Re: Carter Beauford

Boyd Tinsely is by FAR the worst musician in the band. He uses mostly pentatonics in his solos, and very poorly at that. What he lacks in musicianship he makes up in energy and love for the music,...

Re: Carter Beauford

I love Carter Beauford, but it seems that when ever he solo's he ALWAYS falls back on the four stroke roll, i.e. RLRL on the snare then RLRL on the tom (i guess it'd be LRLR for him though!) or some...

Re: Brian Blade

Oh man Brian Blade... what a monster. His playing on elastic is crazy, but I like him even more on Chris Potter's Gratitude. Also, not only is he an amazing drummer, he's an amazing composer/writer...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

This entire argument got started by inferring that one type of set is inherently more musical than another; but... what is "musical"? When Dogbreath says that a big kit is more musical than a small...
