Re: Jojo Mayer: Secret Weapons Part 2

I've already pre-ordered my copy. I'll end up with it a week after a lot of people (free shipping), but to have it over the course of a month to work on it will really help me out.

I'm going to...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

My latest purchase, if you could qualify it, was pre-ordering the new Jojo Mayer DVD set that's coming out on Thursday. Given I chose free shipping, I'll get in next week sometime.

Re: Your warm-up tips here!

This is why I love the clapping exercise. I mean, warming up DOES take time, but if a defensive lineman walked right into a football game without stretching and warming up, he's leaving the game...

Re: Your warm-up tips here!

There are two things I tend to do when it comes to warm-ups, and I'm developing a third way.

The first is a trick from the Jojo Mayer DVD: the hand-clapping exercise. As someone else pointed out,...

Re: Do you all tune your snare reso heads tighter than the batter?

For me, I usually tune my batter head higher than my resonant head. Or at least I prefer to.

My reasoning is that the higher the snare side head is, the more unwanted sympathetic vibration there...

Re: Playing behind/ahead of the beat?

Well, it depends on if you're wanting to play ahead or behind the beat. If I'm playing dead-on, it's not a flam for me, but, using a marching term, a "double stop," meaning both the hi-hat/ride and...

Re: Tommy Igoe's Great Hands For a Lifetime DVD

And with the way a lot of drum instructional media is produced, this is even more paramount. The only thing I've owned and watched that seems to come close to this is the Secret Weapons DVD set...

Re: Playing behind/ahead of the beat?

I've been looking at some of the stuff that "JR" Robinson does, and one of the things he does for his feel is that the only thing ever behind the beat is the backbeat on the snare: the kick remains...

Re: Making Drums Quieter

At the college I attend, the thing I've been trying to push for a while is to get a "house feed" to my own monitor whenever I perform with the jazz groups I am in. That is THE best way to know if...

Re: Ted Reed's Syncopation

One way that I found to use this book that I'm implementing now has to deal with the Moeller stroke. Specifically, the tap-accent idea.

What I do is, with my ride hand, I play time (straight...

I've got myself an 18x22 PDP M5 maple. It works well enough for now, as a college student studying. The only issue I am having right now is the volume and sound from it.

Re: Proper Practice and Internalisation

The answer is to do the action in an unknown rhythm at a slow tempo.

For example, the first day I started to do this, after reading how such is supposed to work, I started doing singles the first...

Re: If you could build you DREAM KIT, what would it be/include? (Shells, cymbals, hardware, etc.)

I've had so many dream kits in the past, so many of them consisting of more moving parts than a steam engine... to give an expression to it...

After some time now, though, my true dream kit, the...

This only really applies if the top and bottom head are the same type of ply construction and thickness,...

Re: Double bass pedal techniques

It's like anything: take it slow and correct first, and play to a click. When you find a tempo that you can play with perfect timing, play that tempo for a consistent 10 minutes. Sound daunting I...
