Re: Singing Drummers? Yay or Nay?

As the lead singer and drummer in my band I'll have to go with Yay!

Re: Growing drummer

Just practice slow. It may seem boring but the slower you practice the faster you learn. If you practice slowly you wont have to practice as much to learn a new technique or beat.

Re: Drumming opposite handed...

couldn't agree more. simple drumming, and simple music in general, often has the most emotional impact whether it makes you laugh, cry or shake yer butt.

Re: how jazz.....

i think it's because jazz training teaches a player how to play melodically - to hear and play spaces, and to hear and play phrases. jazz music also demands a great deal of sensitivity to what the...

just a side note, thinner cymbals have shorter sustain/quicker decay than thicker cymbals so you may consider that the next time you go cymbal shopping. but if you're a hard hitter a thinner cymbal...

Re: Goal oriented practice? (or the psychology of newbism)
