Re: Is "pocket" what you play or how you play it?

Most people wouldn't know a pocket if they were gagging on lint. Quite possibly the most overused term in the music world.

"Pocket" refers to the relative positioning between two or more sound...

Re: A few recording questions

A set of drums, great or not but with decent heads and tuned well will sound amazing on even a cheap set of mics.

It's all about the skill of delivery and capture. If the player's great they will...

Re: The natural meter challenge!

The last 30 seconds was sort of a "thank GOD I can now release!!" and was actually not part of the original 5min. It was just a bit of frill I left in. :D

Re: 7/8 groove with shifting hihat pattern

Paradiddles between your bass drum and snare hand will free that up. Keep 8ths on your hihat.

Re: The natural meter challenge!

There will be a definite correlation between your walking pace and your drumming meter.

Re: The natural meter challenge!

I think drumset would be a better medium, as it's more of a musical thing. But then again, might not be too bad doing it on a pad either! THe idea is to "check thyself" and see what your "drift" is.

The natural meter challenge!

OK, very simple. NO CLICKS ALLOWED.

Play a simple beat for five minutes. No wanking about, just a simple beat. Record this part of the process.

When you have completed step A, see what the...

Re: Future Sounds David Garibaldi

Went through the entire thing in 1994 and came back asking for seconds! If you complete this book your sense of time and subdivision/modulation will be exponentially greater than when you began.

Re: Are E-kits only good for practicing at home?

I play e-drums when I do casino gigs; not my favorite but I've got a CF Card with my kit on it and it's pretty much dialed in like I like it (even named it "Vagina", feels like the real thing!)

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

I just checked my 16th notes in one hand speed. It's more like 120bpm. :D I was just guessing last night.

Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

I think you sound fine, it's all in the perception of the listener. You're gonna always notice your mistakes. As far as stick dropping, I drop 'em all the time and chalk it up to "well, that stick...

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

That's like "mastering purple"... At some point you realize that a number on a metronome is arbitrary and the shading and flow is what really counts.

And as you work on your time you'll find that...

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

Just like your fingerprint, you are gonna leave your "sound" on anything you play on. Doesn't matter if you "lay dead" and chop wood or you're cranking out some wacked out solo, you're gonna sound...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

I'd rather listen to Emanuelle Caplette, Cortney DeAugustine and all the other substantial players who bring something deeper to the table than a nice rack and poofy hair.

She's probably a very...
