Re: The session guys!

Re: Name that rhythm

The Cissy Strut beat and the Looka-py-py. What do you call those? Second line? Not really, right. Just Zigaboo beats. He plays them so smooth.

Re: Here's an idea

I think I was that "feral artist" when i was a young drum student. I probably drove my teacher nuts. So naturally talented but in my early teens I just had no focus and desire to put in a lot of...

Re: Don't underestimate your throne height

Last year I lowered my seat height to slightly above a 90 angle. I used to sit quite a lot higher than this. Once I started playing in a band again I was straining to play louder with power and...

Re: Upsetting the band director...

This the reason why I don't put the top felts and wing nuts on cymbal stands. I would promptly take off my crash and repeatedly bash him in the head "1, 2, 3, 4! Am I rushing or dragging now,...

Re: This ever happen? Plus a 5 minute beat

Why did/do Shamans use simple consistent drum patterns to invoke the spirits and travel to other dimensions? Rhythms extremely powerful. It can induce hypnotic, trance-like states. Awesome!

Re: Andy Doerschuk out of action (hopefully temporarily). Healing prayers and thoughts.

I subscribe to Drum! magazine and in the latest issue's editorial essay Andy mentioned handing over the reigns to a new associate editor that they recently hired. I see why now. I really enjoyed...

Re: Help on tuning my Tama Silverstar snare

FYI, I also have that Tama Silverstar birch snare and love it. I can tune the batter low to high and get great sounds out of that drum. I ALWAYS "crank the reso", though.

Re: Help on tuning my Tama Silverstar snare

+1 to this. What I would add is to give those 4 lugs on either side of the snare bed an extra full turn of the key. This alone has solved most of my overtone and sympathetic buzz issues. I really...

Re: 10 prescriptions for productive practice

Re: How do you not hear your bass drum?

Playing the bass drum with authority! I love that! When I go to see rock or loud music and I hear a drummer with a weak foot and hand (not playing with authority) I really can't take it. Actually,...

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

I currently have a 10x8 12x9 16x14 22x18 Silverstar kit and I really don't like the 10x8 tom. That depth and diameter just doesn't work for my band situation. It gets lost in the guitars tuned high...

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

I really want a 12x9 13x10 14x12 16x16 18x16 24x14. I really like those slightly deeper toms and the shallow bass drum. The toms have more projection and the bass drum has more punch. It would also...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Re: Chops?

Meh, "chops" are subjective and only pertitent to the genre. Those examples were of a genre that called for a strong pocket to move asses.

Re: Thoughts on fill placement

I think it's something fun and interesting to experiment with in personal practice and maybe band rehearsal. I would only bring something to band rehearsal if you have analyzed the fill and it may...
