Re: How to inspire a new student in 45 minutes

If any of us think back and remember a great teacher at some point in our lives, whether it be a drum teacher, coach, school teacher, professor, etc. The thing that usually lingers in our minds is a...

Re: The side snare

I still have a 5x10 Grover maple snare that sounds great. I got this drum back in the late 90s when the side snare thing was more popular. It's great for that Steve Jordan vibe...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

I tend to go for 5/5.5 depth snares. I've always preferred the 5x14 Supra over the 6.5. When I spec'd out my latest snare, I asked for 5.5... My steel Dunnett is a 6.5, but when I ordered it, I...

Re: looking for new metal snare.

The person that always comes first to mind for me, is Gregg Keplinger. I think he's done Bronze, but I know he does Steel, Brass, Copper and Black Iron. His drums are in the middle, price wise -...

Re: Click practice is great and all but..

Resist the reggae beat! It's hard to do at first, but really try and state the downbeat yourself - you are the authority, not the click. One trick is to play your hihat with slight accents on the...

Re: Click practice is great and all but..

When I really started shedding with the click, everyone was using drum machines and programming cowbell downbeats with shaker upbeats... That was the "cool" way to have consistent rhythm, with some...

Re: Keith Carlock - OMG!

Keith is great - I've seen him play a bunch of times around town. It's really cool to see him in a small club with players like Oz Noy and Wayne Krantz. The Oz Noy gig is fun because it's every...

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?

For quieter dynamics, It's a Low Moeller stroke - there are many different heights - from just a tiny flick of your wrist, to completely over your head... It's great for pulling out a quick accent...

Re: Jazz ride pattern - looking for good advanced technique videos on YouTube

Steve smith has a great way to embrace the triplet feel under quarter notes in his "History of the US Beat" DVD.

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?

Dave is right!!
I definitely use Moeller with backbeats. It's a very natural motion, so you might want to address your grip, if the motion isn't feeling right. It looks like you're grip is thumb...

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

If you're doing the jazz thing - go for the DW Jazz series. Sounds obvious, but they're versatile drums. You could save some $ by just going with a 4 or 5 piece kit - probably all you'll need.

Re: My sense of time and accuracy sucks. How to practice?


Those transitions are tough... One thing I do is what Billy Ward teaches in his first DVD - keep time with other parts of your body. You can tap your hihat foot as eighth notes or upbeats ,...

Re: Very loose/flexible wrists - a must have?

Re: Open handed technique

I don't think of open handed playing as a way to sound different, or new - it's just an ergonomic way of getting to the same place. IMO it only makes sense to play open handed if you really don't...

Re: Recording Compared to Playing Live

It does take some practice to get those rim shots every time. It's not the only way to play a backbeat, but because rim shots alter the character of the snare drum's sound, it's a nice contrast to...
