Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

When do you play hi-hat beats with your foot? I keep the foot going on 2 & 4 around 90% of the time (when keeping time or brief fills/solos) for rock, pop, blues, jazz, etc. This is a long habit...

Re: Has anyone read the book "The Wrecking Crew"?

Bermuda- thanks for pointing out there are 2 books with a similar title.
I read Hartman's "Wrecking Crew" last summer, but didn't realize there was a 2nd book with Hal's name in the title. I'm...

Henley is indeed a groove wizard for The Eagles' songs.
I often listen and play the game of 'what would I play' in a particular transition or fill. I always lose that game :)

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

Many great drummers can switch grips during songs, like the switch from sticks to brushes or back from cross-sticking.
I will sometimes switch from matched to traditional during certain songs if...

Re: Is Don Henley relevant here?

Henley is always fun to listen to, simplicity with a sense of well placed musicality to his beats. Reminds me you don't have to fill in all the time or play too many notes/too fast.

Re: hands getting beat up

You might want to consider lightly coating the sticks with Zildjian cymbal wax or a similar product. If you use this when you first start warming up, the grip will be easier on your hands and the...

Re: Best Youtube instructors for the following

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

Kickport now makes a reso bass drum head with a kickport already installed in an ebony Remo PS3. This is less expensive than buying the kickport and resonant head separately.

Re: club date se

+1 for me.
I also got the snare drum in my purchase, which was used but virtually brand new.

Re: Guitar Center's used inventory

There are great deals and they come with a 30 day return as well, which is worth a few $$ more if needed.

That web site is also a gold mine of useful material to read/study as well.

Re: Balance point for playing heel up...

Maybe some drummers are more anatomically inclined towards heel down and others towards heel up.
The challenge in my case is the lower back/upper glute muscles that engage in heel up.
