Re: The grooviest groove?

I love that song. That's James Gadson drumming on that track -one of the all time greats of funk and soul. He's played with just about everyone. Here's a clip of him with Bill Withers doing a great...

Re: Amy Winehouse's drummer

Yes, Homer Seinweiss is the drummer for the Dap Kings. He is one bad mother-watchyourmouth, as is that whole band.

Re: Ayotte drums

I have an Ayotte set that I bought new around '99 that I like very much. Yeah, I remember asking and they didn't make their own shells back then, so I'd assume it's still the same. Mine have the...

Re: creativity issue...

I second Wavelegnth's advice. Books and practice will give you tools and technique, but creativity comes from inspiration, and inspiration comes from music and from life.

Re: Ted Reed's Syncopation

Like everyone’s pointed out, TONS of stuff from interpretations of this book. I just got a video camera, so I thought I’d share one of my favorites. My teacher claims to be able to replicate the...

Re: 3/16 over 4/4 phrases

One that I got from my teacher in this vein and have had a lot of fun with is to use a flam accent sticking for the phrase that wavelength describes and resolve with a flam tap on 4 at the end of...

Re: Really frustrating beat - Help please!

I agree with Jeff and everyone else, especially what Jeff says about singing the beat first. You have to get it into your head before you can play it with your hands and feet.

My only other...

Re: how can I work the uptempos ?!?!?!?

Nice post Gregg,

Another thing that I've always thought was a good reason to advocate practicing with a metronome is that, the same way it teaches you to be honest, it can help teach you to...

Re: Giving my first formal lesson

From what I can remember, classA, that's almost exactly how my first lesson went back in the day, and it was also a half hour. I didn't start doubles on the first day, but letting the sticks...

Re: Giving my first formal lesson

Yeah, IMO on a first lesson you should be spending a substantial amount of time on “this is how you hold the sticks.”

In think that teaching drums is like playing drums -anyone can do it, but...

Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

Well, I think if you're asking if Meg White has a tremendous amount of technical ability, but she's playing so as to sound like she doesn't ...I'd answer no, I highly doubt that. I mean, she might...

Re: Hard to get rid of rest in Moeller Tech.

When You say 'rest' I'm assuming you mean you're using the moeller technique to play triplets and you can't do it without a rest between each triplet?

Re: How do you know when you have good timing?

interesting discussion!

I think counting is huge and very relevant to timing. I try to always count when I practice -always. But, unless I'm working on a snare study or doing something...

Re: Tony Williams Drum Clinic (1hour)

Re: THE DRUMMING DICTIONARY.

I don't know about the transposing thing, but that's right sniz (at least as I understand it)

Re: Advice for the waiting drummer

Re: Advice for the waiting drummer

Nicely said Wy,

Yeah -noodling is bad. It's not only amateurish, it's also really annoying as J pointed out.

I would always try to get out from behind the drum set. If I had my first choice,...
