Re: To Double Bass or Not To Double Bass

Re: Murray Spivack technique?

When I was first taught Spivack's concepts by my late drum teacher, Rick Steed, our first lesson didn't even involve drumsticks ... He showed me the correct motions and...

Re: Phrasing over the bar line?

That said, speed is a lot like Visual FX in the movies-- people show up for the FX, but...
