Re: Consistent grip at higher tempos

I have a ride cymbal to my left, between my hihat and first tom, high enough so that I can get my left trad stick on it at a decent flat angle. As a consequence of that, when I switch to my right...

Re: Head work counts too!

Good thing it wasn't a concrete table. Something about being able to rest your fingers just like a brush would rest on a snare head. The table was the metal mesh kind. And my fingers felt a little...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Louis, this is a jazz arrangement and not anything like what Stevie sings to. I'll ask the band leader if I can post the mp3 here and let you guys listen. It's still swing eighths as far as I can...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Too late! You're now a resident pro here, with two hit singles, and who's now primary responsibility is to make sure the rest of us here are doing it all right now.

Just kiddin :) No harm. I...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

So since nobody's asked yet, which songs did you play on? I'm not much of a rock historian but I would guess you played for either the Doors or Led Zeppelin. Both had hits in the 60s, at least Led...

Head work counts too!

So yesterday I camped out at Samba Juice, eating a Subway sandwich, with my dog, and decided that I would spend sometime preparing for my evening practice session. I re-read the first 20 or so pages...

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

I know what you mean jellybean. But for some reason I pulled through it. 3 yrs of taking my sticks practically everywhere I went. And my thigh hurt from the beatings. Red and bruised sometimes. ...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

I thought about getting up and leaving while this sax guy kept on and on. His snapping is fingers out of tempo during the song and me going along with him to speed up... I hope this hasn't...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Guy sent me an mp3 of his old band playing the tune and it was 218 bpm (bright swing). That's a totally different ballgame from 154 bpm. First, it's a more busy drum part, and thus easier to...

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

Left hand trad grip in the blues shuffle. Solution: Stay away from jam sessions in blues bars late at night. And practice. If you have time left after getting it on with the latin thing of course...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

I got a response back that indicates they want me back at the next rehearsal! This especially important to me because the rehearsal space is less than a block from my house. And the kit I use -...

Re: Happy Valentine's day, guys. Here's to a great six months.

Congratulations! April will be 13 yrs for me. All I needed was 3 weeks, some nicorette gum, a terrible cough, and the rest is history :)

But I only smoked for a couple of years, when my sister...

Re: Does your inner metronome ruin your appreciation of music?

I'm just glad to hear everyone agreeing with me :)

Playing drums in a band, especially in the studio (without a click), is a great experience that solidifies all that's been said above. A...

Re: Drums are consuming me

I think the best option is to play everyday but for a shorter duration (eg 1 hr, which I was able to do when I worked fulltime). And that is just to "keep moving" as one elderly pro once told me. ...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

I played a gig on Sunday with a big band jazz group, and the one song that didn't have markings (other than "bright swing") got a lot of pissy moods from one very unique sax player. He counted off...

Re: Drummerworld NAMM 2014 meet up

I'm living in Los Angeles and so I should go. I believe an invitation from a NAMM member, along with $25, gets you a yellow guest badge.

Hall D seems to be the eye of the storm.

Re: YouTube copyrights for drum covers

I'm thinking radical here. Like, hey, the main thing is my playing, not the cover material. So just as easily as it is to play to a CD I paid for with my hard earned money, I can just as easily...

Re: My horrible Ludwig experience...

That's alot to be wrong with a drum, regardless of price. 9 months too. It's almost as if some PR person got sick of dealing with you and decided to give you the worst of everything - lugs off,...
