Re: Flashy Hi-Hat Work - Practice Suggestions?

That's a great idea. Play the 16th note accent exercises (in the last few pages of the book) on the hi-hat, except play 1 and 3 on the kick, and 2 and 4 on the snare.

If you really want to get...

Re: Covering Songs that Have Percussion

Your personal comfort shouldn't be the motivation. However, the more sparse your drum part, the easier it is for the other players to lose the groove and speed up or down against you. Adding some...

Re: Covering Songs that Have Percussion

Isn't this the worst? This bass line is a giant pain to play, a real stretch over the fretboard, but such a cool part! And it works so well since the guitar playing "trades" with the vocals. Walking...

Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

Syncopation is kind of a dry book, honestly, and there isn't much instruction within its pages -- very few stickings, and no tempo suggestions or advice on how to practice -- just a bunch of...

Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

Sorry Bill, certainly not yours (I have both your book and DVD). Many packages imply it in the title, i.e. "Complete Drumming System", "Learn and Master Drums", and so on. Heck, the sheer volume of...

Re: Brand new to drumming, resource help...

This book does not exist! However, the one that comes closest is "A Fresh Approach To The Drum Set". (Surprisingly, the Latin section is quite good.) Groove Essentials is good, but it's pretty...

Re: Trouble with bass drum doubles

This is probably a big part of the issue.



But you're wrong. The real challenge comes from the particular combination of a double on the foot played immediately AFTER a foot single and then a...

Re: am i evil music chart

There are drummers out there who will make drum charts for you, of any song you wish, but it's expected that you're going to pay money for this sort of thing. Free drum tabs and charts are usually...

Re: Making $ playing drums

For that kind of bread, yup!

TC, what gigs are paying so much? Private/corporate gigs? Are lots of players doing similarly well?

Re: Purpose of singing during new breed

When you say or sing the rhythms aloud, you will notice immediately if you make a mistake. That feeling of awkwardness is your cue to stop and examine where things are going wrong. When you just...

Re: Bass drum triplets - rusty / struggling :(

So, you want to play this groove, but occasionally throw in 3 consecutive 16ths (instead of 2) on the kick, while playing the ride on the "and"s (up-beats), and the snare on 2 and 4?

Chaffee...

Re: Click Tracks

Also it's not uncommon for a band to track with a metronome for the first minute or so of a song, and then for the engineer to cut off the click midway through the performance, and let the band...

Re: Drummer- the only musician that can't mess up?

Scientific proof that drummers can't be messing up the groove. (https://jyx.jyu.fi/dspace/bitstream/handle/123456789/21439/urn_nbn_fi_jyu-2009411339.pdf)

Basically, when there are slight shifts in...

Re: Tempo Training Program?

For some this may be true, but not for all. It's entirely possible to play with a click and still sound bad.

Re: Tempo Training Program?

Seems reasonable on its face, but deeply flawed. You don't learn to play steady time by hearing fewer clicks.

Re: Tempo Training Program?

Not everything can be taught via web videos or a book. Sometimes the topic at hand is so nuanced that you need to be a student in the same room as a good teacher. A book or a video can only tell...

Re: MEMORIZING DRUM PARTS

Agree, you just "see" how many measures to play, rather than have to read it.

Re: MEMORIZING DRUM PARTS

The OP obviously needs to learn to make charts, and the picket fence method is a great place to start. Later on, the OP can add more detail, such...

Re: All the things that go into drumming

As someone who has been through this -- disagree. Timing can be refined, and while, yes, it will require a click (or loop, or some other non-human source) for a period of time, eventually the click...

Re: Any method for fast memorizing long and complex phrases

The more senses you can engage, the more quickly you can absorb a new piece. So, listen to it, read it, and sing it. All of the above are better than any one method alone. But if you're still...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Without a click, it would likely fall to the bandleader to "conduct" the band through the drum breaks. Not that big a deal, really. Maybe GH would simplify or make more clear the pulse. As long as...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

That's very uncool. You just don't F with someone like that mid solo, it's disrespectful. As a drummer, you'll get "wtf" look if you just dropped out during anyone else's solo. Hoping these were...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Point taken. :/

EDIT: Also, Larry is allowed to never learn cross-rhythms because GH used a click with the CBS Orchestra. After all, rhythmic awesomeness is easy-peasy with a click in your ears. ...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

So I am wrong about there not being a click! Sorry about that!

I think plenty of non-drummers, especially at that level, aren't going to be fooled by a swiss triplet or a blushda, they're both...
