Re: Keeping Time doing a (buzz) roll as a fill

Of course, always be mindful not to let your skeletons out of the closet, so to speak.

Re: Shooting for a 50's sounding snare! Any advice?

Opentune has it about right. Tighter than you think, too.

Calfskin heads will really help, but Aquarian Modern Vintage or Fibrskyn will do the trick. It's what I use for Rockabilly and Jump Swing...

Re: How to improve your internal time - you ideas

1. Practice singing and playing SUBDIVISIONS from 40 BPM. You gotta fill those spaces with something. Don't just do target practice with a quarter note click. You must create a flow of musical time...

Re: What method of drum video critiquing do you go by?

It's entirely subjective. If it's deserving of praise, it gets some. If it's just another young player engaging in Youtube narcissism, I usually don't bother commenting. The cookie-cutter drum cover...

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

There needn't be either of those things to be Moeller.

And you do understand that Chapin's whole thing - including "pull outs" - was Moeller, right?

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

My thought exactly.

My view is this: whether we call it "Moeller" or "push pull" or "up-down" or "Super Bad Meaning Good Technique" or whatever, the point is that in order to get this stuff...

Re: How to get better snare sound ?

Yup. Unlike some engineers, I want my toms to produce snare buzz. They sound much bigger that way.

Give it time, my man. Time. Jeff's technique wasn't built in a day.

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Exactly. I like an non-ported drum as much as the next guy, but I really only have one kit that I have a full head on. It's an old Round Badge drum but it's only 20x14 and I use a PS3 and felt strips...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Well, I think it's a bit of both. I'm very much on the "touch is king" bandwagon, but I think that tuning and going for a particular sound is also a big part of the equation. Perhaps bigger than we...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Good thoughts. I agree with a lot of that and to me the whole thing with muffling, etcetera is "for what song/gig?" I have ported heads on the drums that need them to get a certain sound and...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Fair enough. I suppose then I would say that I think it's important to go looking for this *explicitly* rather than having it simply be an accident of genetics and economics. :)

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Me too, in fact. But gear isn't an entirely insignificant factor and I thought it might be a good wedge in the door to a conversation about what really makes a unique voice on the drums.

Re: Rimshot Variations

Never heard those labels, but I kind of like them. I'm fond of onomatopoeia. To some degree those would be effected by tuning, however.

Of course, there's also 4, 5, 6, 7... i.e. every point in...

Re: Mastering the single stroke roll

Sixteenth notes at 240 BPM is a pretty good benchmark and musically useful. I make sure my students work on short bursts - i.e. 3s, 5s, 7s, 9s, 11s, 13s, 17s - at those upper range tempos because...

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

We'd have to watch you to see precisely what you're doing but, in general, for this stuff I find a way to distribute the work of the two notes between different muscle groups as you are. Utilising...

Re: Mastering the single stroke roll

Yup.

And as time has gone on I've shifted heavily into the "practice the SSR as various subdivisions" school of thought. If you're knocking out groups of 12 at 80 BPM, say, you've probably got...

Re: How to play something different..

You're done with Syncopation in the 3 months you've been practicing? Don't bother with Chester right now. That isn't a book for a guy who's been playing for less than a year.



Again, you've...

It sounds to me like you don't have a book, yet.
