Re: Rudiment naming question

Yeah, that's exactly my understanding. I don't know why anyone would go with the alternative labels, that just seems to introduce confusion and ambiguities. And after all, a five stroke roll and a...

Re: Rudiment naming question

A three stroke ruff is still singles, ie rlR lrL. It differs from llR rrL, which (much like trying to sort through this mess of names) is a drag.

Re: The 10,000 Hour Drummer

The "single" and "double" terminology refers to the alternating pattern between the hands. So when you have two strokes in succession from the same hand, that is a double.

RLRLRLRL = singles...

Re: 16th Note Triplet Accent Patterns

I notice you made no suggestions yourself. Given that the OP asked for "any good books or exercises that work on combining singles and doubles in 16th note and/or 16th note triplet accent patterns",...

Re: 16th Note Triplet Accent Patterns

As usual, I think the answer is... Stick Control :)

Why do you think Ginger Baker is obscure?

Re: Open Mic NIght...A scary thing

Another similar idea is to call a bunch of guitar and bass teachers and see if they have any students who are in a similar position, ie ready to start playing with others but not quite ready for full...

Re: Drummers: Does anyone know of a song that includes a LOT of styles/rythmic variations within it?

There are a bunch of playalongs on Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials that cover different styles in one piece. I think they're called World Tours or something similar.

Re: A few beginner questions

You're doing exactly the right thing in looking for a teacher. In the meantime, get a copy of Great Hands for a Lifetime by Tommy Igoe. Focus on the first half hour or so of the DVD, particularly the...

Re: Vater Sticks

This is my experience, at least with 5A models from each company.

RIP to a truly great drummer, and condolences to the Igoe family.

On a related note, does anyone have experience building one of these?

He is a great drummer. Saw Russian Circles a few months back. Controlled and intense.

Re: Brand new drummer, getting started..

I use Firefox. Tried it in Safari and it didn't work, but Chrome did the trick.

You should definitely get a teacher. You can practice all the right things, but if you don't establish good...

Re: Support your local music store!

Hey Pocket. I'm normally keen on supporting local shops, but just out of curiosity where do you usually shop online?

Re: Groover, Technical Wizard, or Technical Groover?

A logarithmic scale would be OK, but a di-axiomatic quantum inverter would yield more accurate results. Of course if the OP's metronome is equipped with a flux capacitor then there may be some...

Re: Tables of Time - David Stanoch

This book sounds really good, and I've been eyeing it up for a while. I don't have a kit at the moment and won't do for a few months, so just hitting the pad for the time being. Do you need to work...

Re: What is the slowest tempo you consider "necessary" to play rudiments?

This is what I was getting at. I guess a better question to ask would have been "What tempo range do you feel it necessary to be comfortable in", or something like that. I tend to agree with the 200...

What is the slowest tempo you consider "necessary" to play rudiments?

Hi all,

Thread title basically says it all. By necessary I mean the tempo at which going any lower would become more of an academic exercise than something which will help your playing. Obviously...

Re: WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO MOST OF YOU'LL LISTEN TO??

Yeah, like a lot of people have said, I listen to everything. I think it is particularly important for a musician to do that.



Are you seeing Explosions in the Sky next month?

Re: Best drumming DVD (suggestions)

Re: Music without drums

I've been listening to Beethoven's piano sonatas a lot recently. I would say that a lot of the "classical" music I've been listening to also falls under this heading, but in many cases the strings...

Re: Finger speed

I don't understand what you mean. If you are playing 8ths at 138bpm, and then switch to 16ths at the same tempo, you'll be playing 16ths at 138bpm, not 276bpm... Or have I missed something in what...
