Re: How did you start getting "loose" on difficult fills?

I should add knowing what you are about to play helps stay loose. Even if I am trading 4's. I don't "KNOW" what I am going to play, but I usually have an idea.
or concept... Is it linear, is it...

Re: Double bass frustration

I agree with axis on the metronome. It is rare I DON"T use one. At gigs is about the only time. When I practice I use one ALL the time.

Re: Double bass frustration

First off. Double bass takes years to master and get fast. Don't expect to be playing 220 BPM 16th notes for 2 minuets in the first year... Just like you can't go out and run 30 miles. you need to...

Re: Questions for metal drummers on the forum

There was a ton of pointless comments in there wow.

I figured I'd chime in as an extreme metal drummer who spends way to much time playing blasts.

Don't use doubles for blasts. I have seen some...

Re: Order of study: moeller, finger technique, push-pull

I wasn't referring to a single one of those bands either. Although Tre is decent. Travis a flashy drummer that has his own style, he's good as well but I wouldn't put him in my top 10.

Re: Order of study: moeller, finger technique, push-pull

LOL. Most punk band drummers (modern ones) and skate punk bands have great technique. I don't know how your 16th notes at 240 BPM are, but playing in crappy punk bands IS what taught me Moeller...

Re: Order of study: moeller, finger technique, push-pull

Re: Beginner double bass drumming - where do I start?

For some reference, as a deathmetal guy, I have been working on 16th notes for 15 years. hahaha

Re: Beginner double bass drumming - where do I start?

I say learn 1/8 notes, and 16th notes under everything you already know how to play. start slow. speed up.. keep it very clean.

I'd also work on triplets under everything as well. 1/8 and 16th.

Re: Left hand goes stiff

I have improved my hand speed more using a pad than a kit too.

My band writes between 210-240 and there are LOTS of blasts... I do find practicing singles at 170/180/190 has really helped push...
