Re: Glen Sobel

Ok I just posted about Glen on the underrated drummers thread but I just had to share this. It's youtube vids from the Drum Daze festival in Ohio a couple months ago. The first video is Glen playing...

Re: Underrated Drummers

Glen Sobel. Absolutely. I started a post here for him quite a while ago. He is so deserving of more exposure. I've seen many new youtube vids of him over the last few months. A lot of clinic and drum...

Re: Sean Reinert

I saw Sean and Cynic open for Meshuggah last year. I was pretty close so I noticed that Sean plays his double bass 16th patterns with left foot lead uaually. And then he sometimes keeps his left foot...

Re: Gergo Borlai - Awesome drummer from Hungary!

Yes this guy is sick. I've seen a few of his youtube vids and he's got crazy fast singles and super fast single pedal technique. Wonder if he'll ever come to the states.

Re: Glen Sobel

I was in LA and went to the Baked Potato to see the band Volto. Turns out their drummer Danny Carey was sick that day so filling in for him last minute was Glen. He killed it! Amazing! Grooved and...

Re: Richie Hayward

I attended the benefit held for Richie in Thousand Oaks, CA a few months back. The turnout was great, sold out I think. There were so many performers that it went up till 2 AM I think. The last thing...

Re: Aynsley Dunbar

The self titled Whitesnake record from the late 80s is some of the best most solid playing by Aynsley. It's just rock solid and fills up just the right amount of space. And for some serious fills and...

Re: Benny Greb

I just saw him do a clinic. I was definitely impressed. Not to mention he's a very funny guy.
He had a lot of great things to say about how to setup a practice routine. It wasn't just a guy getting...

Re: Keith Carlock

I saw Keith play live not long ago and I was loving it. I was wondering what a good first CD would be to pick up with him on drums. Some people say his work with Oz Noy stands out really well. Is the...

Re: Glen Sobel

There's also a really great lesson that Glen has on youtube. It's from an article he wrote for Modern Drummer. It's a pretty simple but effective idea that I already have tried some things with and...

Glen Sobel

Here's a guy I just found on you tube. He's absolutely amazing. I had a CD Glen Sobel played on by guitarist Jennifer Batten. A killer record with some awe inspiring drum parts but I hadn't heard...

Re: Open handed + double bass

One other thing about speed and technique versus groove and feel:
So much drumming in music today is of course "fixed" in pro tools or other type of digital editing. With the use of grid editig, cut...

Re: Open handed + double bass

I'd go along with that. It just seems that more and more, beginning and intermediate drummers focus on the extremes of speed and independence at the expense of making music. It's because of this that...

Re: Open handed + double bass

I second that and.....different drummers respond differently to independence issues. It should not be the goal to be independent for independents sake. Music, touch, feel, groove, these far surpass...

Re: Open handed + double bass

I disagree with trying double bass with left and right foot lead. If it's a right handed setup then see if right foot lead works well for you. If not then go to left foot lead but I think unless you...

Re: Tim "Herb" Alexander

Yeah. Tim definitely has a unique style of double bass drumming. I think the thing that made me first realize that was hearing him on Sailing the Seas of Cheese. The tune "Jerry Was a Race Car...

Re: Tommy Aldridge

There ya go. That's what I'm talking about.

I hadn't seen Tommy Aldridge live in concert till more recently. I saw him play with Whitesnake maybe 4 years ago. I loved it, although he didn't do a...

Re: Tommy Aldridge

I just think the whole speed for speeds sake is getting out of hand. It can be frustrating when you have drum students that mostly are into the extreme and speed drummers because they have a lot of...

Re: Tommy Aldridge

Please. All the drummers you mentioned are worth listening to. A lot of the "old school" players you listed have so much more going on than sheer speed or crazy independence. Guys like Gregg...

Re: Tommy Aldridge

Tommy Aldridge is awesome, period. I Think there are so many drummers into the new extreme and speed metal guys that would totally appreciate what Tommy does. I just don't think they've been exposed...

Re: Vinnie can do it all.

Definitely a lot of hard work. Also having an open mind. Vinnie can play everything because he probably appreciates a wide variety of music. He's played with Frank Zappa and Allan Holdworth, but also...

Re: Best books that focus around the whole kit?

It still seems that a book like "Syncopation" by Ted Reed is important. There are so many different ways to apply this book. Like reading the text with your right foot while playing 2 and 4 on snare...

Re: Jean-Paul Gaster

Agreed. He should have a page here. I don't have any of Clutch's CDs but what I've heard on the radio is excellent. A great example of a modern rock drummer that pays heavy attention to the groove.
