Re: Jon Dolmayan

I polished up Question! and Cigaro to jam with my guitarist the other day, Jon's drumming is great and fun to play. I think a small amount of grooves in Hypnotize / Mezmerize have been overdone, but...

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

I hate hitting your hand whilst playing aswell. More specifically I think the worst instance is when you hit your thumb or 1st finger... It's so hard to get the power back in your snare hits!

Re: Danny Carey

I reckon Right in Two is a great song - I love the progression from around 6.30 - 7.10. I cant really hear the likeness to 46&2. I agree with you about Rosetta Stoned. I think the album as a whole...

Re: Danny Carey

I dont think 10,000 Days sounds the same as any other Tool record. What songs on 10,000 Days are similar to others? Also what is wrong with the "it'll grow on you" line? I wouldn't ask anyone but a...

Re: Chad Smith

Re: Danny Carey

I think 10,000 Days is a brilliant album. At first listen I was not sure whether it could compete with Lateralus and Aenema but upon further listens it is apparent that 5 years of work did go into...

Re: 14 year old drummer who made me weep.

Hey that guy is great! I thought that the Afro-Cuban bit was the best. Many responses seem to be "he plays the same chops stuff over and over". I actually thought that Tony Royster JR's clip had more...

I saw System Of A Down at the Gold Coast Big Day Out - and i cannot agree. Whilst he didnt do any stick twirling as far as a saw, he was definately grooving and the music was coming on fast and hard....

Re: Drumming and your neighbors

In response to Nutha Jason - I think that working up double kick speed is important for metal drumming. Now it doesn't need to be used generically, but it is very hard to play complex fast rhythms if...

That link didnt work for me, if it is just the one song under 10 meg, you can upload it straight into your post! Just go Manage Attachments, just under the Submit button. I would like to help you out.

Re: Jordan mancino is awesome

I agree with Elemental to a degree. I would say he is excellent but the strongest part of his drumming in that song is his chops. Not a bad song either.

Re: tell me who is the best metal drummer!

No one has included Matt McDonough from Mudvayne!

Admittedly some drummers listed may be 'better', but he definately deserves to be on the list!! :D

Re: Chad Smith. Like? Dislike? come in.

YES!!! I played to that album aswell, It improved my playing exponentially.
That is a beautiful album, not a bad song on it!
Chad's drumming is so tight, has so much feel!
