Re: Open handed newbie here

This is another solution, a fixed second hi hat on the strong hand side. Low cost and zero re-learning. I have been thinking...

You know, any of these are fine but they're quite different and it becomes a matter of taste whether they work for you. I've got several books and dvd's, they all look great when you buy them, and I...

Re: Insulating a ceiling for drumming!?

Mine is soundproof enough. My daughter does her homework directly above me without complaints. She does hear me somewhat obviously.

Re: Insulating a ceiling for drumming!?

It should not be that expensive if you do it all yourself. I think I paid like 1500€. It sure is a lot of work, it took me 3 months' worth of Saturdays, lots of evenings and the occasional day off....

Re: Permutation: David Garibaldi

I love what he does. A great example of an easy concept that can work out very well in a song. As opposed to, complicated concept that won't make anyone dance.

Re: Eek - where did it all go right?

Hi Madge, you know you can be a president or prime minister just winging it. If they can do it, you can do better! Great to read that, good luck :)

Re: Singers and percussion

It is not as easy as it seems. You have to learn to free up braincells to do the shaking.

We have the problem the other way around in my batucada where at some point everyone is supposed to shout...

Re: What's your process for coming up with drum grooves for songs?

Before thinking about the exact details of the groove, maybe you want to take a step back and imagine if the song asks for some kind of contrast or development.

Take the example of Learning to...

You don't HAVE to be Chad or Keith to play a brilliant solo.
Be yourself and go back to the kit! ;)

Re: How to feel the tempo after 2 bar count off ?

I'm familiar with the issue of taking the tempo that the leader comes up with and which can be slower or faster than usual. As soon as he starts counting off, take over the tempo immediately for...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity

I think hate and musicianship are mutually exclusive. Unless music is elitist and used to separate people, not unite.
Look how peaceful this forum is, you should see certain competitive sports...

Re: Here's an idea!

The confusion and conflicting answers things is unfortunately a reflection of reality and simply the first stage of a learning process that eventually leads to wisdom nirvana. I don't think we should...

Re: On teaching

Positive motivating is good for beginners. If you're looking for excellence, nothing works better than the occasional kick in the butt. Occasional, not permanent :)
I have two kids. One badly lacks...

Re: Does independence just click one day?

It wouldn't be as much fun if anyone could master it in 10 minutes! I remember the bossa nova moment very well. The hardest thing is to start it and play the first measure with everything at the...

Re: Help with trying to soundproof shop building

If you have an existing decent structure, decent I mean stone walls, the soundproofing should not cost more than the kit in my experience if you DIY.

Just to stir up the discussion: this whole...

Re: Chad Smith

"Fit well in the context" is not doing him justice imho. If you take him out of the RHCP the whole thing collapses. I think he's awesome and inspiring.

Re: How can I improve the feel and technique of my weak hand

1. Get a teacher
2. Slower alternative: try to find out exactly what the weak hand is doing differently than the strong hand. You said the fingers leave the stick. How does that happen. Film your...

Re: First studio drum experience - Advice?

Is this the first time you recorded your drumming? If yes then it's normal to be confronted with imperfections that you don't hear while you're playing. Record yourself more often and it will for...

Re: Practicing on an electric kit....

100% agree.

I traded in my e-kit when I got my a-kit and regret it now. It gives you much more practice time. If you can afford to have both, it's perfect.

I used to have a TD4KX (all mesh)...

Notwithstanding his abilities, I just can't see how he can be so utterly uninterested as to not rehearse the song and just think he can wing it while it does not even remotely look like the original...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Jeez he doesn't even have a clue of the signature beat of the chorus. Totally unprepared.
