Re: Total noob about speed and rebound

Well, that's certainly true, but in general you cannot hear the shape of the drum. In mathematical terms there exist isospectral manifolds: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/IsospectralManifolds.html

Re: Using your weak hand in everyday situations (brushing teeth, combing hair..etc) h

You could wield two brushes at once, and cut the time spent cleaning your teeth in half. This would free up more time for practice!?

Re: need help with triggers and sampling please!

Well, you can use a number of programs, it depends a lot on how what your budget is. You could use BFD, Drumagog, or EZDrummer within anything that supports VST. For example, Cubase, Ableton,...

Re: Total noob about speed and rebound

Interestingly you can't hear the shape of a drum (although you can hear the area, the length of the boundary, and the number of holes if it has any!).

Re: need help with triggers and sampling please!

I remember Tony Laureano did this with Nile. An auxilliary pedal cycled through a set of samples on a laptop. I do not know how they did that unfortunately! But you could emulate this by using a...

Re: spin doctors "two princess" drum transcription

Pocket Full of Kryptonite was the first album I ever bought, I still have the cassette somewhere. I remember trying to work out how to play this track as a kid!

Re: Tim Waterson Here!

I bought Tim's DVD a while ago, and the Moose stamp on the packaging was worth the price alone. The DVD content is great, and Tim is a genuinely nice guy.

Re: Has anyone conquered Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual?

Has anyone here tried playing it with brushes? I have enough trouble doing it with sticks!

Re: want to do metal double bass (200 bpm+), no idea where to start

I heard Gene Hoglan once played chicken with a house, and he won.

I think Derek's is essentially saying that you develop techniques that allow you to play better (maybe faster, or with more independence etc.) naturally simply by playing; and that learning a new...

Re: Joey Jordison

Like with Travis Barker, the amount of discussion about this guy is disproportionate to his actual ability.

Re: Favorite metal drummer?

They're a Dutch technical metal band and they use polyrythmns extensively, like Meshuggah.

Re: Favorite metal drummer?

No one's mentioned Hellhammer (Jan Axel Blomberg) yet! Also, Stef Broks, the drummer for Textures, is excellent.

Re: Favorite metal drummer?

Sean Reinert, Bobby Jarzombek, Derek Roddy have been mentioned but I have to second them. Bobby has got a great personality, no ego, and I respect him for that.

It's pretty difficult to pick a...

Re: Skill for age level

When I was 14, Thomas Lang hadn't released his DVD, which was a terrible handicap. In order to be taken seriously you will need to complete all levels, and the bonus level (which is hidden on disc 2...

Re: What is your Double Bass Drums speed ??

Speed is just another facet of playing, I think it's unhealthy to focus exclusively on speed to the detriment of dynamics etc. But it's also wrong to suggest that improving speed is not musical or...

Re: What is your Double Bass Drums speed ??

200 for about a minute or so with real consistency and power. Can't say I've needed to use that kind of speed in a musical setting, but it's nice to practice these things.

Re: Mike Mangini

I appreciate that Mike, despite being a WFD record holder, doesn't overplay things; many drummers would if they had similar ability.

A current project he's been involved in:...

Re: Billy Cobham

I missed a chance to see Billy Cobham playing in my area recently, the event was hardly publicised and I was quite annoyed that the event organisers hadn't done more.

He's one of a small number of...
