Re: Mastering the Tables of Time

No, there's an actual book called, "Mastering the Tables of Time." It's good, but I never practice out of it-- once you get the hang of the idea that you can play things in different rhythms, I don't...

Re: Looking for a specific drum set method book

Never used it, looking at the Amazon preview I'm not real impressed with it. Not terrible, but a style guide shouldn't be bogging down in minutia like ghost notes. There's a funk book by Roy Burns...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Yeah, but it really doesn't. 7/8 is not played in a fast 7, it's played in a lopsided 3-- the main pulse is typically two quarter notes and a dotted quarter note, in any order. 7/8 and 7/4 both have...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Only mathematically, not practically-- the note values are mathematically halved, but that's not what half time means. It actually goes the other way: 2/2 is half time to 4/4, 3/2 is half time to...

Re: Accent on second stroke doubles technique question

There have been a bunch of threads discussing this ad nauseum recently. What he's doing in the video is actually full stroke / downstroke. I don't know why he's doing the downstroke, because it's not...

Re: Music that Improves your senses.

It's more a way of listening than the actual music. I'd be looking for anything I'm not overly familiar with, that uses the full sonic possibilities of the ensemble, and/or that is narrowly focused...

Re: A shame, but long rumoured :(

Don't know the story with them, but look up vulture capitalism (http://https://www.npr.org/2012/01/19/145463691/vulture-capitalism-how-private-equity-firms-work)-- a kind of predatory investing...

Re: Fast memorization when improvising? - methods - tricks - shortcuts ?

Can't get more internalized than playing something without planning it or practicing it. You played it once, you'll probably play it again. Let it go.

I've played a ton of improvised music, and...

Re: What tempo to practice at?

You can keep pushing the limit on paradiddles your entire life-- they're useful up to around 16th notes @ quarter note = 190-200 bpm.

I don't totally agree with the headroom idea-- just because...

Re: How do the pros practice for so long?

All due respect to the psychologists, but practicing is what people who can play say it is. It's fine if they want to do a study about it, but there are other factors involved besides what is most...

Re: How do the pros practice for so long?

I don't know, how does anyone do any one thing for that long? Some combination of work ethic, career and/or creative ambition, focus, interest, and love for it. Probably helped along by being in a...

Re: Stick Control and Syncopation books question.

Oh not at all man! Thanks for the recommendations-- I only ever really listened to him on the Booker Ervin records (https://youtu.be/OxBFPnup_H4).

Dawson's stuff, yeah, but I've been working on expanding that (http://www.cruiseshipdrummer.com/search/label/Reed%20interpretations)-- there's no reason everyone can't do it. Like I teach rock beats...

It takes a lot of patience and creativity. Just keep experimenting. Even if you never actually bond, she's going to remember this and be influenced by it. She'll probably end up being great at...

It's going to be fine, don't weasel out of your first real gig. This is exactly like every other casual in the world. I usually don't even get a title before they're counting off the tune. It doesn't...

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

OK, let me get in on this: here's me playing Three Camps at ~150 (https://youtu.be/v_mLkdy5cps)-- rolls on a triplet subdivision-- and then a little bit of 16th note rate improvising at the same...

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

It's not impossible to play a controlled open roll at any speed it's used in real music. Above a certain speed you're not playing both notes-- the doubles become a single compound stroke-- but it's...

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

The "rebound" version, where he plays a 28" main stroke with a 3" bounce, is not my idea of a good open roll. It sounds terrible when he demonstrates it on the pad, and weak when he plays it on the...
