Re: Best shuffles?

Georgie Fame. If you don't know the drummer within 8 bars, you should be ashamed :)

Re: Video/audio recorders?

Similar to Bo, I've got the Q3HD and more recently the Q8. I use the Q3HD quite regularly, hardly use the Q8. Only because I'm not keen on the wide angle fish eye lens effect it has. That said, it...

Double Paradiddle grooves

I was noodling along to a 6/8 afro cuban backing track today and enjoyed sticking some double paradiddles as grooves over it. For anyone interested, I've put together a little lesson using some...

Re: That Gadd fill in Chuck E's In Love

Thanks guys! Glad it's of some use. Sorry to destroy the magic larry, haha :D
Yes Cornelius, I imagine everyone in the studio had to pick their jaw up from the floor after Mr Gadd nailed that one. :p

Re: Weird perceptions

Quite normal larry. You really can use food as a comparison. One day I prefer chocolate with a crunchy bite to it like maltesers or a crunchie (these are two awesome british confectionaries) and...

Re: That Gadd fill in Chuck E's In Love

Yep agreed, Pps. That'll probably be because Gadd played it so effortlessly with such incredibly even strokes that he makes it breathe more than me and most mortals can. :D

That Gadd fill in Chuck E's In Love

While I still had my kit set up at home on Friday I did a quick and dirty tutorial on the famous Steve Gadd fill that I always liked right in the middle of the Chuck E's In Love song by Rickie Lee...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Yes good points. Actually, although polkas are generally written 2/4, I tend to think of them of as 2/2 cut time in much the same way a lot of broadway musicals were written, like 'no business like...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

You're right with your other comparisons. For instance, 3/4 and 6/8 each have six eighth notes but because 6/8 is compound time and the pulse is two dotted quarter notes, the feel is very different...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

I'm talking about 7/4 QUARTER notes played at 80bpm, not 7/4 quarter notes at 160bpm. The 1/8 notes of 7/4 at 80 bpm are equivalent to the speed of 1/8 notes in 7/8, which would be 160 bpm.

A...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

You're missing the point. Larry is trying to understand how 7/4 relates to 7/8.

7/8 at 160bpm is the same speed
as 1/8 notes in 7/4 at 80bpm.

The quarter note tempo in a single measure of...

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Absolutely correct. If you were playing 3/4 at the tempo of 80 bpm, your 3/8 speed would be equivalent to 160 bpm.

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Hi larry, you're essentially correct. The main thing to know is the meaning of the bottom number.

/4 means it's quarter notes and /8 means it's eighth notes.

There are two eighth notes in a...

Re: Weezer plays Rosanna..

You're right, his ghost notes sound laboured and it's more noticeable because of how unsubtle he's playing them. It's supposed to be a loping pattern that purrs away smoothly under the main backbeat....

Re: Weezer plays Rosanna..

The Africa cover was definitely better, it has some interesting subtle differences which make it reasonably unique.

The Rosanna cover though.. more like the Poorcaro shuffle.

Re: How cool is this?

I once owned an old Porsche 944 and just about squeezed my kit in but I couldn't get my 20" bass drum in with the case on. Even without the case it was so tight sliding it into the back I scratched...

Re: A shame, but long rumoured :(

That's as maybe but the fact is Sakae drums are excellent quality and I suspect they might become collectors drums in the future if they don't become solvent and get back in business. My Sakae...

I thought this was a Spinal Tap version with ghost notes that go to 11.

Re: Soul Sacrifice Fill

It's basically a 6 stroke roll as 1/16 note triplets, with the first stroke on the crash. There'll be a bass drum stroke with that crash.

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

Must be a lovely feeling being a drummer doing one of those Gretsch unboxing videos for a new kit that has been custom picked and given to you for free. Maybe in my next lifetime. :)

Re: Love this Blue Gretsch Catalina

I messaged the seller and he said the kick is a 22", toms are 10" and 12" and floor tom is 14" as is the snare. Pity the kick isn't smaller.

Re: Did Derrick Pope pass away?

Glad to hear he's alive and well. So it does make you wonder how and why a rumour (and obviously a fake rumour) like this would come about!

Re: Love this Blue Gretsch Catalina

I wouldn't mind a 14" floor tom, and tbh, I always wanted a 22" bass drum for gigs as my Yamaha is a 20". But for home, I think a 22" would be too big. Ah well, guess that crosses this kit off.
