Re: The Grand Master Buddy Rich

My first drumset was a kit that Buddy did a clinic on back in '74. But I didn't go to the clinic, and all I have is my brothers word, because it was he who went to the clinic, and it was he who...

Re: Hi-Hat pull rod replacement

Hey thanks guys! I will check out Home Depot for the thread type. As far as buying 1/4 inch steel rod, I don't think they sell that stuff at Home Depot (hey, this is the United States, they don't...

Hi-Hat pull rod replacement

Anyone know where I can get a replacement pull rod for my 1980s Tama hi-hat stand? Gibralter sells a "standard" threaded version, and a "metric" version, but I don't know which kind I have.

I'm...

Re: Antonio Sanchez

Does anyone know when Antonio is giving his clinic tomorrow in NYC? All it says is the 29th of October and where it will be (Hudson Music).

Thinking of going,

Steph

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

I totally agree, although I haven't touched Stick Control since August. Every time I attempt an exercise (on page one), my wrists tighten up. I have, however, found beneficial practicing on real...

Re: Drumset setup

I'm also constricted by the 12x11 being mounted on the 22 inch bassdrum. I could get rid of the 12x11, move the 8/10 pair to the right, away from the HH, and lower them. Still, I think my...

Drumset setup

Hi all!

I just got back into playing after a 5 year layoff, and am trying to figure out the best setup of my drums --22x16 BD, 8x8 TT, 10x10 TT, 12x11 TT, 16x16 FT. Currently, I have them setup...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

Yeah, that is kind of what I do, not with Samba, but more of a BD-on-1 thing. I figure if I'm restricted on speed, due to my weak hand (left), then i might as well practice some coordination while...

Re: A Natural Evolution, How to develop technique

I went to see him in clinic form, as well as watched him on the TUDW videos. I don't believe he could properly execute a double paradiddle with accents and ghost notes.
Now this may be due to...

Re: A Natural Evolution, How to develop technique

Absolutely! There is no hard and fast rule for everyone. But for ALOT of us, and I mean MOST OF US, what I said holds true. At least in the sense of playing music that is jazz oriented or groove...

Re: A Natural Evolution, How to develop technique

Dom played loud and played soft, but never mixed the two for any real length of time. This does not contradict someone who plays match grip... ie., to be able to play soft. But to play mixed (ie.,...

Re: A Natural Evolution, How to develop technique

Not necessarily so! The back does not have to be knotted up and strained if ONLY ONE shoulder is stressed (the right shoulder if right hand is non-traditional). Ever wonder what that strain is in...

Re: A Natural Evolution, How to develop technique

There is a finesse that traditional grip gives that the others don't. And I think it has to do with the angle/placement of the hitting surface, that determines when to use it, as well as what type...

Oh, and Dom wasn't kidding about studying with Chapin! Next time you have your "Advanced Technique for Modern Drummers" out (vol 1), look on the back cover where a review is signed by Dom himself!

Re: Dom Famularo @Sam Ash in Springfield, NJ

Actually, I think the Sam Ash website is wrong, at least the map they have displayed is wrong. Why? Because the map they have, lines up with:

155 N 22nd St
Kenilworth, NJ 07033

which is the...

Re: Dom Famularo @Sam Ash in Springfield, NJ

The street address is not giving consistent maps. From Sam Ash's website it shows Kenilworth just east of Sam Ash, yet maps.google.com shows Kenilworth southeast.

Here is the street address on...

Anyone going to this, this coming Monday night (8/27)? I've been trying to catch Dom for the last year or so, and he's been overseas mostly. Last domestic clinic I think was in Las Cruces, NM.
