Re: How long have you been playing?

I've been playing for about three years now. I get behind the kit somewhat regularly, but calling what I do "practice" would be a little disingenuous.

Re: Metronome?

While I believe there's a grain of truth to what you're saying, I'd imagine that the practice of demonstrating rudiments by the accelerando-decelerando method is so ubiquitous in auditions and...

Re: Swing Charts

You assume correctly. Thanks for your advice. By the way, I already own the John Riley book, and it is good, but as you said, is not really suited as much for big band, and because I already study...

Swing Charts

I've got a jazz band audition coming up, but my sight reading skills are... unimpressive. I was wondering if anyone knew of any place where I could download swing drum charts online for practicing...

Re: Post Your Greatest Strength

Playing musically/supporting the band. I'm sure most of you guys at drummerworld have me bested in this respect, but as far as drummers in my school and area go, I'd say I'm pretty good. I don't do...

Re: Improvising and Trading Fours

Thanks for all the advice so far, guys. I've been practicing with what you've said in mind, and while I've still got a stretch to go, I have been improving. Also, I've been meaning to pick of The...

Improvising and Trading Fours

I've recently been having a lot of fun with a few friends in a jazz-fusion band we formed (a term I use hesitantly, being that we play a berth of jazz-centric styles from funk to bossa nova.) For...

Re: Head choice for piccolo snare

I have a Pearl Brass 3x13 that came with a Coated Ambassador over an Ambassador Snare Side and it sounds great. I have the top one tuned fairly tight and the bottom one tuned moderately tight, then...

Re: perfect pitch. what about perfect timing?

One of the instructors for my high school drum line used to be able to do that sort of stuff. It was incredible–we'd play a click and he'd be able to consistently clock it within 2 bpm of the actual...

Re: what grip type do you use?

I generally use German grip, but will occasionally switch my left hand to playing Traditional on the snare (particularly for jazz applications.) I use French on the bow of the ride, but German for...

Re: Rockband Drums: good practice?

To be fair, the "fill trainer" far surpassed my expectations. It's certainly no match for real lessons, but the game's taking strides in the right direction with each new release. At the very...

Re: christmas presents

I got the Pearl B1330 13"x3" Brass Piccolo–I like it an awful lot so far. Perhaps less impressive than a black beauty, but it fits my style well enough, especially when cranked on the higher end....

Re: Bass player looking for some advice

I hate to contribute to the maelstrom of conflicting advice here, but I'd suggest starting with a nice practice pad and a few introductory lessons at your local music shop (sometimes they'll offer...

Re: Pearl Piccolo Brass opinions.

If for any reason (presumably price) you decide against saving for the Yammie and favor the Pearl you originally asked about instead, you can get it for $35 less at Steve Weiss Music...

Re: Dennis Chambers

I just saw him with Santana last night. Good God. If you're impressed by the videos, you're floored when you see him live. Seeing him play recorded simply doesn't translate his power behind the...

Re: Joey Jordison

I've never been a huge fan of Jordison's work, I wouldn't go as far as to say he sucks, but from the songs and solos I've heard, he comprises most of performance with bass blast mixed with doubles,...
