Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

Re: Two floor toms....

the floors on either side are pretty much what Gary Chester used.. I think he said it was part of his technique/philosophy; you should be able to hit anything with total independence of limbs no...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

No physics.. just a tip I picked up from a Russel Kunkel interview a long time ago, where he said he uses a strip of 3" thick foam (about 4" wide) laid across the botom of the kick so it just barely...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Well.. there's a big difference betwen E-kits and E-guitars. E-guitars are still basically acoustic instruments with pick-ups (similar to microphones, in that they both use magnetic coils (guitars)...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Some options:
- sticks a snare with stand and a big rubber pad that sits on the snare
- some drum lessons on a real kit
See if she has the aptitude / interest for it before investing in a kit

Re: groups of 4 fast 16th notes on single bass drum

That's crazy! I saw another video of him where he says you have to use triggers to get the sound precise.. and also letting the beater swing way back (otherwise it's not drumming - you're just...

Re: groups of 4 fast 16th notes on single bass drum

It can be done with slide technique as 2 doubles.or whatever works for you. I had to play something like that at 190 in a pattern of 2 bars of 1/8 notes ending every other bar with 4 1/16ths. Eg. 1 &...

Re: Going from tight hi-hat to ride cymbal during songs - ride cymbal ideas

Yes I've used the heel and toe of the foot split between the hats and the kick.. but it's a bit awkward. You have to have exact positioning of the pedals to make it ergonomic.. and it takes a bit of...

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

That is odd.. did they say it was shipped or got lost in shipping? Do you have a tracking number?
I have a Tempus snare , bought used thru Kajiji.. Local is the only way I buy equipment..

It's a...

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Ha.. kind of proved my point.. even the sound guy knows that e-drums don't cut it in a live playing situation. Acoustics rule!
Glad it worked out for you!

Re: sixteenths on hats?

Yes.. I use that technique as well; and any other accenting patterns help to relieve the stress at hi tempos. Also I don't know why but it seems easier to play fast straight 16 ths in a half time...

Re: The Magnificent 7... a must have book for drummers

Ha.. Cool the youtube video shows Bill Stewart playing at Smokes. I went there the last time I was in NYC last year and saw a 'smokin' band. The drummer had his snare on such a steep angle he had to...

Re: sixteenths on hats?

Nice... I love Jeff Porcaro! He was a true master.
.. and it's true, it does sound groovier when you play it with one hand. But in those case where the tempo is too fast, and you're playing a 3 hour...

Re: sixteenths on hats?

It's funny.. straight 16ths or fast 8ths can be a breeze to play up to a point, but once you cross that speed threshold they can make your hand fall off! I use a couple of techniques when the speed...

Re: can anybody on earth transcribe this satanic groove?

Not sure why anyone would want to.. it really sounds like crud on a stick. He's playing offset patterns lifted from a shuffle with some double hits thrown in. But at the end of the day, it doesn't...

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Don\t do it! E-kits really suck big time live.. think elevator music with no presence other than in the sound booth. If all the other drummers are playing acoustic kits you will be very disappointed....

Re: Tempo comfort zones

Makes sense.. if you count it as double that's around 150bpm which is the tempo for Brown Eyed Girl.. a chestnut I know, but a good marker for dance tempos.

Re: Tempo comfort zones

Re: "Play something." What do you play?
