Re: Dog Ownership and Drumming

Thanks (from me and my girlfriend) for all of the responses! There's too many thoughtful posts here for me to reply to all of them individually, but I did want to respond to a few comments...

Dog Ownership and Drumming

Hi All,

My partner and I are considering getting a dog, but I'm concerned about making sure that I can happily continue to practice on a regular basis without damaging the dog's hearing. I'm...

Re: DOUBLE STROKES

Okay, here's the correct version of the first two files I posted yesterday... (sorry for any confusion!).

Also, I'm sure this is talked about quite a bit in the videos that were posted, but you...

Re: Your Favourite Band That is Not Well Known

If you like funk, do yourself a favor and check out The Blue Method (http://www.ilike.com/artist/The+Blue+Method?src=onebox). They have been becoming more widely recognized, as their live...

Re: Wives and Girlfriends at Gigs

I don't play out terribly often, so my girlfriend usually makes a point of trying to see me perform when I do. She's acted in a variety of productions, and I usually try to see her perform at least...

Re: DOUBLE STROKES

EDIT: I was an idiot and wrote out the wrong stickings for the first exercise, and just realized it this morning. Go to my next post to get the correct version.

I used variations of the...

Painful learning experiences

It's storytime! Let's gather around a virtual campfire and tell some horror stories ... but with a purpose. I want to hear about your awful experiences that ended up providing you with some sort of...

Re: The decline of the double stroke

It's a long story (in fact, I'm going to make a thread related to it), but I spent an unhealthy amount of time working on open double-stroke rolls when I started high school. As a result, I still...

Re: Looking for 13" die cast hoops with 8 holes

I don't doubt it; I just meant that I literally hadn't read anything about it before, so my usefulness for your purposes was expired. :)

Re: Looking for 13" die cast hoops with 8 holes

Google and Ghostnote (http://ghostnote.net/vbforum/index.php?) deserve more credit than I do, but you're certainly welcome!

To be honest, I don't know much about brass hoops. I'm pretty sure that...

Re: Drumming = Health Benefits ?

It depends. If you're playing very high-energy licks for extended periods of time several nights a week, you're actually getting yourself in tremendous cardiovascular shape...

Re: Stupid noises while drumming!

Count me among those who do a bit of under-their-breath atonal vocalization. I blame it on getting in the (generally good) habit of quietly humming what I'm playing to myself when I do improv on the...

Re: Looking for 13" die cast hoops with 8 holes

Okay, it looks like I should've taken more time before posting. Drum Factory Direct has the largest selection of die-cast hoops that I know of, which is why I just posted them. However, taking a...

Re: Looking for 13" die cast hoops with 8 holes

Drum Factory Direct sells them (http://www.drumfactorydirect.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=6_7_63), and you even have your pick of manufacturers: WorldMax, Cannon, or Gibraltar!

Re: Tama Starclassic or Gretsch Catalina Maple

Good point. Starclassic Performers are excellent drums, and if you really like the sound of both, having one birch kit and one maple gives you even more options. (Of course, since I play on one...

Re: Do you have what it takes? A listening challenge

Thanks for the tip, KIS. I'm not currently in the market for cymbals, but I will certainly be purchasing more at some point in my lifetime, so I'll be sure to price out the Murat Diril options when...

Re: Triplets over quarters

Yeah, I saw after you posted that you'd actually already worked out the kinks, but I figured I'd leave my post in case anyone else found it useful -- especially since it works for any polyrhythm. Of...

Re: Do you have what it takes? A listening challenge

Okay, I have an answer now: it was a pair of Audix F15 mics.



Yeah, I do realize that cymbals have some variation in sound, even when they're made by the same manufacturer as part of the same...

Re: Do you have what it takes? A listening challenge

Thanks to everyone for their guesses so far; I wasn't sure if this was something that people would be interested in trying or not.

I'll go ahead and drop a couple more hints. This cymbal is not...

Re: Triplets over quarters

I was using (eighth-note) triplets as the subdivision, not 16th notes. Each beat is divided into three, not four; quarter-note triplets do not split into 16th-notes evenly. (If you play a...

Do you have what it takes? A listening challenge

Hi all,

Without going too much into the back-story, I found myself being recorded a couple weeks ago, and I recently received a fairly rough mix of the results. On my first listen, I was a little...
