Re: Al Jackson jr break in Turn You Loose. . . sounds simple . . .

I think perhaps why you're confused is by the presence of the tied notes. There is not a separate attack on the note that is tied to the one before it; the tie just means that the note is held out...

Re: Preparing for a covers band

I'd like to second this. I know that people learn differently, but I've written a lot of cheat charts in my day, and I've found that for me just the act of writing them down helps solidify the...

Re: The Muscle Shoals Sound

In addition to the Southern Soul tunes that he played on (Aretha, Pickett, Percy Sledge's "When A Man Loves a Woman", the Staples' "I'll Take You There," etc.) I also dig his hip playing on some of...

Re: Triple Stroke Roll - The Gateway Rudiment?

Nice ideas, John. Your "paradiddle sequence" exercise made me want to expand on that by suggesting that you could also practice this kind of variation using the first 3 pages of Stick Control, by...

Re: Getting the most out of the Chaffee books.

I've practiced out of Time Functioning Patterns a fair amount, but mostly just the first two sections (the rock ostinato section, and the first part of the jazz section). Besides practicing it the...

Re: Nice...or not so much

Of all the drummers that I've met (not that I'm met a huge amount of big name players), one that stood out for me was Don Alias. Just a humble, friendly, sweet guy. I met him before a jazz festival...

Re: Brain Fart :-)

Well, you're in good company at least--Tony Williams plays a superimposed 4/4 on the tune for over half the length of the Miles Davis version (off of Miles Smiles).

Re: Ugh! I hate my feet!

I'm not the best at the samba pattern at brisk tempos myself. This doesn't address your question (i.e., how to play the bass drum pattern better, for which I'd recommend you read the advice of Todd...

Re: Thinking outside of 'sticking patterns' - Inspired by Casey Scheuerell

That book is great. A lot of these types of exercises (i.e., starting with a rhythmic line, and using that as the basis for orchestrations) originated with Alan Dawson, who applied them to Ted Reed's...

Re: Jazz: Following the form questions

This topic reminds me of something Bob Moses says in his book Drum Wisdom (I'm paraphrasing from memory, so I hope I don't misrepresent his words). He says that our primary job as drummers when...

Re: Help needed from you Blues Boys

Yeah, I should have listed Earl Palmer, who is one of my favorite drummers. I tend to think of him as an R&B/New Orleans/rock and roll drummer more than a "blues" drummer, but he could play anything,...

Re: Help needed from you Blues Boys

Here are some good older blues drummers to check out:

Fred Below (a ton of people in Chicago--check out Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson records that he's on)
Odie Payne (another guy on a...

Re: Concentration Question

If that's the case, you might want to check out some live albums featuring Al Jackson, Jr.'s drumming (I look for any opportunity to talk about this stuff). Here are some of them (all of them except...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

They moved us to Flynn's for the semi-finals. It was nice to experience a different venue from the previous two nights.

Did you notice the guy playing drums behind the gospel singer, and also the...

Re: Concentration Question

I thought you might find that helpful. :-)

As for the audience, this was from a performance in Oslo, Norway. Steve Cropper has said that in London they were mobbed on this tour, but many of the...

Re: Concentration Question

Regardless of whether Jackson "got it 100% right," I'm fairly certain that he's the one who made the decision to play it that way. That said, for whatever it's worth, he was a different drummer live...

Re: Stick Control - How even is even?

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

I was in the Rae Gordon Band. We did make it to the semi-finals, but not to the finals. I think there were about 10 bands in our venue. It's always fun watching different groups on a bill, and seeing...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

Hey Larry, I played with a band at the competition this year, too (we flew down there from Portland, Oregon). If I'd known you were going to be there, I'd have tried to see if I could have caught...

Re: Shuffles

Yes, great stuff--thanks for posting that! I'm guessing it's Fred Below on that tune. He was on most of Little Walter's 50's output.

Re: Shuffles

I'd call it a swing shuffle. Or maybe a jump blues shuffle.

Here are some examples of some blues shuffles that I dig:

Re: How to pull it off on the bandstand for jazz drummers please

Good suggestions from Todd. Another approach to developing the "ruff bossa" method comes from a Joe Morello variation on the first three pages of Stick Control: for every "R" sticking play an 8th...
