Re: unusual notation

Are you talking about the brackets I've marked with yellow or the horizontal ones with numbers 1 and 2 that I've marked blue?

Re: Passing On Experience

Learn to play quietly as well as loud. Watch you don't drag if you're playing softly.

Play at an appropriate volume for the style of music and size of the venue. Balance your sound with the rest...

This drum sounds quite boxy.

Re: Boxy Sounding Drums?

UV1s are great and not boxy. I've no idea why so many people slate them. They're super durable and are resonant, you just have to tune them right.

Re: unusual notation

Exactly what todd said. When I write charts for myself, I always emphasise repeat brackets by drawing the angled tails top and bottom, same as bar 9. But where they've only put the bottom tails at...

Re: Seth Davis Drumming: Chronological Chaos

Well for one thing I don't really care that much, it was a light hearted throwaway comment. You and Seth might well be two different people. :)
However, it's easy enough to have the same person post...

Re: Time signature???

Yep, simple 4/4. You can either count it as 1+2+3+4+ with the snare backbeats on 2 and 4, or you can make 1/8 = 1/4 and count each bar 1234 with a single snare backbeat per bar on beat 3 if you find...

Re: The one piece of gear you'll take to the grave

Drumsticks. By the time I disintegrate, there'll be plenty of them. Vic Firth Tibia 5B, 7A Ribs and Ulna 5A. All will be non nylon tips.

Georgie Fame. If you don't know the drummer within 8 bars, you should be ashamed :)

Re: Video/audio recorders?

Similar to Bo, I've got the Q3HD and more recently the Q8. I use the Q3HD quite regularly, hardly use the Q8. Only because I'm not keen on the wide angle fish eye lens effect it has. That said, it...

Double Paradiddle grooves

I was noodling along to a 6/8 afro cuban backing track today and enjoyed sticking some double paradiddles as grooves over it. For anyone interested, I've put together a little lesson using some...

Re: That Gadd fill in Chuck E's In Love

Thanks guys! Glad it's of some use. Sorry to destroy the magic larry, haha :D
Yes Cornelius, I imagine everyone in the studio had to pick their jaw up from the floor after Mr Gadd nailed that one. :p

Re: Weird perceptions

Quite normal larry. You really can use food as a comparison. One day I prefer chocolate with a crunchy bite to it like maltesers or a crunchie (these are two awesome british confectionaries) and...

Re: That Gadd fill in Chuck E's In Love

Yep agreed, Pps. That'll probably be because Gadd played it so effortlessly with such incredibly even strokes that he makes it breathe more than me and most mortals can. :D

Yes good points. Actually, although polkas are generally written 2/4, I tend to think of them of as 2/2 cut time in much the same way a lot of broadway musicals were written, like 'no business like...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

You're right with your other comparisons. For instance, 3/4 and 6/8 each have six eighth notes but because 6/8 is compound time and the pulse is two dotted quarter notes, the feel is very different...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

I'm talking about 7/4 QUARTER notes played at 80bpm, not 7/4 quarter notes at 160bpm. The 1/8 notes of 7/4 at 80 bpm are equivalent to the speed of 1/8 notes in 7/8, which would be 160 bpm.

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

You're missing the point. Larry is trying to understand how 7/4 relates to 7/8.

7/8 at 160bpm is the same speed
as 1/8 notes in 7/4 at 80bpm.

The quarter note tempo in a single measure of...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Absolutely correct. If you were playing 3/4 at the tempo of 80 bpm, your 3/8 speed would be equivalent to 160 bpm.
