Re: I hate that Song!!

Close, but you're missing 3 notes. This might happen if you play the first note as "1" instead of playing the first 3 notes as "and 4 and'

Re: I hate that Song!!

The first note is not 1. The fourth note is 1. The song starts out "and four and" (just like the first 4 notes of Jonny b goode).
The accent on the first note tricks your brain into feeling it as...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

I agree completely. Improvising a fill can be inappropriate and ruin a song. I'd be disappointed if I went to see a band live and the drummer didn't play the fills (or any other part of the song) as...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Of course not, that would be crazy. I assumed everyone was simply discussing planned fills vs improvised fills as available options.

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

This is the beauty of practicing rudiments and displacing sticking around the kit. You develop a vocabulary from which to form phrases. So instead of a pre-planned fill you have applicable concepts...

Re: Heel bouncing on the hi-hat pedal

I don't do it to "keep time", exactly. I do it to keep the feel of the groove when playing complex song structures, polymeter, cross rhythms, etc.

Re: The magic of a simple kit

It seems there's a misconception here that fewer toms equals simpler playing, or simpler fills. I notice the opposite in my own playing as well as in others playing hard rock, fusion, prog and metal....

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

I can't think of a gear trend that bothers me enough to mention. However a playing trend I won't miss when it goes away is metal guys riding on a china.

Re: The magic of a simple kit

I keep it as simple as I can (2 up 2 down). My playing tends to be more deliberate, less automatic, than on my former 9 pc, where I almost felt obliged to include as many pieces as possible in a...

Re: Exercises/rudiments -vs- or solos/excerpts

The good ones are, yes.
Practice rudiments. It is literally expanding your drumming vocabulary.

Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

I have no use whatsoever for heel down playing, however heel down practice is beneficial. You want your footwork to feel as natural and second nature as possible, and practicing heel down contributes...

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

When I played bass and guitar I was obsessive about a good drum sound. It's inspiring. In my primary band our drummer even wanted me to mix the drums in the studio.

Re: Returning Drummer Aches.

If possible get a simple checkup on your spine, make sure there are no signs of curvature issues. Especially if, in addition to the aches in your hips, you start to have neck aches.

Re: Bass drum technique

Most pedals I've played, whether chain drive or direct drive, whether playing slow or fast, feel best in the center, more or less.

Re: Who has inspired the most to make people play drums?

That which is correct or incorrect is not Neil himself, but rather his inclusion or lack thereof in one's reply. To include him is correct, to exclude him is incorrect.
Regardless, it was meant to...

Re: Who has inspired the most to make people play drums?

There is no right answer, but there is a wrong one.
If your answer doesn't include Neil Peart, you answered incorrectly.

Re: Heel up - arrrgh!

A few of tips.

"Heel up" doesn't have to mean your heel is very high, it just means it is not planted.

Heel up consists of several different motions used for various strokes and speeds. These...

Re: Mixing up pedals for double bass

LOL, I would hope so.

If a 10 year old child can play double bass properly without mix-matching her pedals then so can you. Try and identify the problem and just work it out mate.
