Re: Left Foot Clave

I'd go for the Negro Hernandez' Conversations in Clave DVD.

That one will get you going.

Re: Metal?

I will try basic exercises like RLRL and LRLR (16th notes) for long periods of time all the way from 80bpm up to whatever you can manage as long as you can stay relaxed.

Also, this looks basic but...

Re: Open-Handed Players: When did you start?

I've started playing open handed a year ago. Now I feel pretty comfortable with it although I can't play funky-tricky-grooves while left leading.

One other thing that I can't do very well is to...

Re: Mike Portnoy

I'm just gonna add my personal opinion on this, just as you did.

When I see Mike Portnoy live (or in dvds), I get the feeling he's playing with passion. Then, honestly, I don't care about his...

Re: Practicing Bass with no pedals, does it really works?

Hey!

I've finally found a way to buy those practice pads for the feet.

Re: What First Inspired You

Phill Collins, I watched over and over a concert when I was like 6 years old and it was what really got me into hitting everything on my way!

Then after years Mike Portnoy made me push my limits,...

Re: Hi-Hat grooves?

Well, I don't have transcriptions but, The Police is a great band to check if you want to improve that area of your drumming.

Stewart Copeland is known for his hi-hat playing.

Some Opeth and...

Re: Learning a song?

What I do: listen to it and play along as soon as I get the song structure. Then with time the main fills will be in my memory and eventually the details too.

Now, the best and most accurate way,...

Re: Practicing Bass with no pedals, does it really works?

Ok, I do understand and yes, it really works for me also to practice air drumming.

But, practicing like that, does it really develop your muscles?

Practicing Bass with no pedals, does it really work?

Hello!

I've been doing some research about practicing with no pedals, you know, just hitting the floor.

Now, for what I found, if you are hitting the floor plain and simple, you're not working...

Re: Learning to tune the drums - teacher?

I know there's a drum tuning bible out there on the net, I believe I found it on drumbum.com.

Anyway, if you can, of course it's great to have lessons on that, but after knowing how it works, I...

Re: who does your favorite drum solo?

I think that my favorite has to be Mike Portnoy's As I Am (studio version though, I don't like his live solos that much).

But also, there's a Mike Mangini solo that blew my mind, I just remember...

Of course, complete independence can be found in...

Re: beginner tips for double bass

My advise: metronome, 16th notes, start slow (at least 80bpm) and work your way up increasing the bpms by 5.

Trust me, it might feel strange to play slow at the beginning, and you'll feel more...

Re: Who's your drumming influence?

Re: Drummers on a different level than other musicians

I think times have changed... we, as drummers, were considered as just "the timekeepers", but, nowadays that has changed, we contribute more to the feel of the music than ever before.

I understand...

Re: Martin Lopez

As far as I know, Martin Lopez is alive (... and well). I'm a drummer from Uruguay, just like him (but not that good :P) and he was here recently so... he should be fine.

Now, as a drummer, to me...

Re: Can jogging improve your speed or slow you down?

I used to work walking 8 hours per day, and believe me, the pedals felt a little bit lighter than usual after 2 months (and I wasn't practicing at all).

So, my personal approach over this idea is...

Re: Drumset vibration?

That thing looks great!
Thanks, I'll see what I can do with that.

But, does someone tried the drum mutes? Do they work well with vibration or they are just to reduce noise?

Drumset vibration?

Hello all!

To make a long story short: I can't practice double bass at home! I live in an apartment and, obviously, I can't play my drums because of the noise.

Then, I bought a practice kit...

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

Lack of time to practice.
More speed with double bass drumming.
I'd love to play jazz and latin styles more efficiently.
I can't play polyrhythms, I don't even know where to start on this one.

Re: Mike Portnoy

Mike has been my favourite drummer for 3 years now. He's very creative and he inspires me a lot. You can recognize him instantly, often because of his chops.

Even though his my favourite drummer,...
