Re: Hi-Hat Adjustment

So far I like em about 3/4" or so, enough that they don't touch when open unless I really lay into it. But for some reason it annoys me to have a huge range (like the 1.5" a couple said). I'm sure...

Re: Accent on second stroke doubles technique question

Hmm I still don't see why the first would have to be be choked or tense. He is demonstrating it without much finger snap but why? See 1:03 where he is holding the stick all rigid and not moving his...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

Sitting at work, designing buildings, listening to Thunderpussy and drinking a PBR tall boy right now.

Re: Beginner Metal Songs?

I can't seem to get into death metal but that song looks fun to play! Still not beginner friendly though, it would probably take me months of hard work every day to learn that lol.

That's cool how...

Re: Heel down doubles

I've been trying heel up recently and have a lot less control it seems... But also same issue as above, I tend to have to lean back. My drum teacher only plays heel up - he just keeps his toes down...

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

Dotted quarter 32nds at 93 is 1116 per minute, slightly less than quarter 32nds at 140. (12/32 = 3/8, 12x93=1116)
And that pad is hella bouncy.

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

I'm with you on fingers never leaving the stick. They sort of follow the stick and control it. The stick will always bounce, otherwise it would just stop on the head like a magnet or else utilize a...

Re: Double stroke vs. double bounce?

Hi, I'm wondering what is meant by double stroke vs double bounce. My drum teacher wasn't sure either. Isn't a double stroke always bounced by definition? I.e. double hit per one stroke thus the...

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

Hobby for now, but there isn't a "beginner and aiming for a bit more" category.

Re: Is it acceptable to audition for multiple groups/bands?

Well, yeah, but willing to accept under the right circumstances. One can go in knowing that they might not accept as long as they also might accept.

Re: Fatigue and recovery

Re: Do You Drum While Not Drumming?

I've been doing this for years, if not decades, and I've only been drumming 6 months.
The real drumming only makes the habit worse (or better, one could argue).

Re: Is it acceptable to audition for multiple groups/bands?

I don't have experience with bands (yet), but I disagree with Jon w/ regards to work. It is very common to interview, get an offer, and decline. The employee is interviewing the employer as well. If...

Re: Picking out drum parts (especially kick) by ear

Picking out drum parts (especially kick) by ear

Hey, just wondering if this is something that comes with time spent on drums, like the ears/brain just learn to hear more drum parts as one progresses?

I started like 6 months ago, and learned a...

Re: Bass pedal toe stop

Along these lines I have a question for those who don't experience the foot slide issue. Do you play heel up? Do you have certain shoes you like with sticky soles?

I find I alternate heel up and...
