Re: How does Gavin do this?

There are several stickings possible. The one you described is probably the most popular one.

In all permutations of the hairta, one hand is playing doubles and the other hand is playing 8th...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Here is an example of a popular cross-rhythm.

1. Play 1/4 notes on the kick at about 100-120 BPM.

2. Play 16th notes with the hands on the snare.

3. Change the sticking pattern from RLRL to...

Re: So should you never bounce doubles?

You said it right there. He lets the stick bounce but also uses his fingers.

If you just bounce the stick the second stroke will necessarily be softer because a bounce is always lower than the...

Re: Most important techniques and rudiments?

Yes Bill is the man. Definitely check out his website because a few forum posts are never going to get into the level of detail that you need.

The first step is developing the free stroke. This is...

Re: Bob Clearmountain & Matt Chamberlain Recording Drums With 2 Mics

Cool for certain types of music, definitely not for any type of progressive playing with multiple toms and cymbals. Imagine telling Daney Carey or Carter Beauford to go with only 2 mics!

I just...

Re: Playing over the bar line.

As a kid, I studied with Rod Morgenstein just after the Dregs broke up and before he joined Winger.

He taught me how to play over the bar line in incremental steps.

Basically play a groove and...

Re: Impact Isolating Riser - My New Design - Plans and Guide

It looks awesome. My only concern is the overall height. My studio has only an 8 foot ceiling and giving up a foot of height is killer.

But the plans themselves look very well thought out and I...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

Les and co.

Do a google image search of a modern player who uses trad, such as Virgil. He is playing a huge kit and hitting hard.

I see perfect posture.

If the grip was the root cause, he...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

No true scientific evidence, as in a double blind study. Anecdotally, many players who play both tend to say that but not all.

The reality is that every grip has a trade off. They are different,...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

YES, for every person that got an injury from doing something, there are those for whom the motion works great.

It's like those people who drink, smoke and eat poorly... yet live to 102.

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

Be careful when you try to lump all drumming styles together when discussing potential injuries. Thomas Lang's playing style is much more "athletic" than Mel Lewis' was.

In some of my metal bands....

These pro ballplayers have incredible talent, and the absolute best in trainers, doctors and facilities. If they even...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

Don't forget the one where Morello would have been better had he practiced stretching and yoga.
