Re: Overlooked instructional books/DVDs/CDs

I might be able to agree a bit more if I tried really hard, but right now I just can't bring myself to it. This book is phenomenal!

Re: Click practice is great and all but..

Move the click to 2&4 or 8th note upbeats to make the metronome swing. For developing steadiness of tempo over a longer period of time, use a single click per bar (or multiple bars).

Re: Notation

Just try to make things look like it's printed. Over time you'll develop speed while maintaining quality and intelligibility.

Re: Could someone please explain this song to me? (Feiticeira by Deftones)

The guitar riff starts with a pickup of four sixteenths, and the rest of the intro is in 3/4 time. The guitarist plays an accent on the second beat of each measure, which helps you line up your own...

Re: Pros vs. Average Joe's

I've no idea. I'm a professional drummer and I know plenty of hobbyists who could play circles around me... yet here I am, paying the bills by playing the gigs.

Re: Snare buzz

I've never stumbled upon a snare without a snare bed. My Acrolite has one and I doubt Ludwig removed the all important feature from their newer models.

Snare buzz is an integral element of a kit's...

Re: If and when to move on from a routine

First read and learn what to play. Then, as soon as possible, ditch the notes and make it your own -- vary the dynamics, tone, orchestration, phrasing. Check occasionally whether you're still playing...

Re: Should I give up this hobby for drumming?

Quitting after getting a black belt is just as arbitrary as quitting after a red belt. The black belt signifies the true beginning of your journey as a martial artist -- it signifies that you have...

Re: Applying Paradiddles and drags/ghost notes

Just orchestrate them around the kit. Take the paradiddle, for instance. You could:

1. play the accents around the kit and everything else on the snare
2. play the Rs around the kit and Ls on the...

Re: Comping: John Riley - Art of Bop Drumming questions.

A nice way to apply the comping exercises is to play the two bars as written and improvise another two bars -- a short call and response. To make the phrases a bit different, change the amount of...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

My two-year-old can sing and play the drums, piano, guitar and bass rhythmically, and I'm quite certain that she hasn't a clue about the "theories of rhythm".
