Re: Why are Rudiments Important

Right hand plays 8th note single strokes on the hi-hat. Bass drum plays single strokes on 1 and 3. Snare drum plays single strokes on 2 and 4. Rudiments!

Re: Why are Rudiments Important

I just don't see the negative aspect of thinking of that as the first beat of a single stroke roll. The goal is to demystify the rudiments. Everything is a rudiment, practice your rudiments and you...

Re: Why are Rudiments Important

I used to be kind of scared of rudiments. I didn't understand why other drummers got all worked up about them. I saw them do crazy things, but when I sat down on a pad I didn't really get anywhere. I...

Re: Which book first???

If you haven't spent any time with stick control you should definitely use it alone for a few years. Accents and rebounds is designed to be used AFTER all of the patterns in stick control are totally...

If you aren't trying to looking into any outside help in the forms of medication or any help in the form of training, one thing I would suggest is get on google video, and check out some stand-up...

Re: Specific exercise for jazz ride cymbal speed.

However mayn double strokes you do, do them more, at many different tempos and volumes, always with a metronome, always for at least a few minutes at a time. Before he died Evlin Jones was talk about...

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

I'm suggesting that your grip is fine if you are fine with it, but the way to take it to a high level is actually choosing a system for yourself, an actual specific grip that you know works well....

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

Well do you want to hear some commentary on your grip? I'm assuming so, because you asked.


The first issue with your grip is your wrist. It's almost turned as if you were about to shake...

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

I've always tried to practice at whatever tempo was weakest. So say I can do everything at one tempo except for the RRRLs and the LLLRs, well, it's not like I'm perfect at any of the other parts...

Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

I'm stunned. I've never found an opinion I've disagreed with more than yours.

What about timbre and tone? Just because you're not terry bozzio doesn't mean you can't tune your drums. Danny...

Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

Hey people seem to want to listen to her, so who cares what she can do? I mean, how much better would you think she is if she could shred a dave weckl play-along? She's doing what (presumably) she...

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

Trust me, 200 bpm 16th notes (for at least ten minutes, perfectly even, at any dynamic level) takes a few years.

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

Yeah, metronome is a 1/4 note, and I play the patterns as 16th notes. I think they're written as 8ths in the book, but that doesn't force you to do anything.

As far as nhozo and n2xlr8n are...

Re: Stick Control routine...

First of all, complaing about it seeming like work and no fun and then going on about how it has nothing to do with attention span is complete bull. These are conditioners, they are not about fun....

Re: Stick Control routine...

nhozo, I'm sorry to contradict you, but a page a day is WAAAY too fast. Try a page a month. What's the deal with attention spans these days?
