Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Niel Peart might be mechanical sounding, but at least he has some chops (which I find lack a certain amount of feeling - I know he has some feeling because of the amount of effort he puts into his...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I used to think Chad Smith was one of the best funk drummers ever.

But now I think that he essentially plays the same bloody beat with different drums.

Re: Less isn't always more?

Re: What is the difference of 3/4 and 6/8?

Hi there. Recently I came across a guy that has done some recording. It is what would be described as 6/8 notes because that's the end of the measure for the loop of the guitar coming in/out, but...

Re: Your Everest / Breaking through the barrier

Yessss, I've just picked up how to do the Bonham triplets combo (obviously not like Bonham in Moby Dick or anything like that).

Re: Covers that you would like to play, already play or currently learning.

Like I said, I only want to play a few.

Re: Covers that you would like to play, already play or currently learning.

Thanks Coolhand, good suggestions.

Covers that you would like to play, already play or currently learning.

I've just joined a new band and the singer sounds a lot like Janis Joplin which is fantastic.

Anyway I gave the band a list of songs that I would like to cover and learn, I've played only a small...

Re: Using fingers for accenting doubles and for playing fast.

Thanks everyone. I'm going to start doing the doubles slowly with just the smaller fingers.

Re: Reason why no Keith Moon type drummers exists on main stream music

Just reading some of the post about Keith knowing nothing about drum technique, theory and being a by the book musician.

Re: How did Keith Moon play?

In my opinion the closest to Keith Moon's style of playing was Mitch Mitchell who was particularly adept at using drum technique. I think the key to Moon's playing is being able to do single stroke...
