Re: Example of double stroke roll in songs

Here's the best advice I can give you:

Start practicing double strokes, paradiddles and all your other rudiments now, because in 10 years time when you have a pretty good idea about how much stuff...

Re: Sickest Blast Beat Video Ever!

Gee, and here I was thinking people on this forum were open-minded and open to respecting the tastes of others.

Re: Hearing.

I'm still not 100% what you're doing?

You say you don't wear your earplugs with the Shure IEMs - are you talking about using the foam tips? If you're still using the silicone tips (the...

Re: Hearing.

Sorry, but I disagree that the SE215's can't get loud enough without a headphone amplifier. I have never used any sort of amplifier with any of my sets of IEMs because it's completely unnecessary -...

Re: Building vocabulary

I think you have the right idea.

What I think is equally (if not more) important, is to build your vocabulary of shorter patterns.

For example, in Gary Chaffee's Sticking Patterns book, you are...

Re: Incredibly Overly Muffled Drums

The best recorded drum sounds I've ever heard have either one of these two things that apply:

1. Simon Phillips is the engineer

Re: Practice routine advice

Your join date is in 2012, so I assume you've been playing 5 years or more at this point.

You should be able to easily fill in an hour with quality practice. What are your goals? What sort of...

Re: Hearing.

I found with the SE215 that because it's designed to sit flush with the interior of the ear, that you can only make an 'insert' the length of the stem.

So what I did was cut the bulk of the insert...

Re: Heavy sticks

I haven't used 2B or anything that size (or thicker) for years. But up until about 3 months ago I was using Promark 747B Super Rock sticks - which I've been using probably around 7 years. They're...

Re: Things a Drummer would never say:

Haha, nothing much. Just was in a band as a teenager and the singer decided it would be funny to flop it out and put it on my ride cymbal during a practice. I was not impressed.

Re: Can I still do double strokes if I have loose spring tension on kick pedals

Re: Who has Virgil transcriptions?

That's the intro from the PX - Quantum Factor version.

I think I've seen a transcription for the song Quantum Factor but that may also just be a few parts in Double Bass Freedom.
