Re: Music lover at war with the student ...

Get rid of everything that interferences or irritates your practise, and don't try to please those who cannot be pleased at all. Go with the flow and instinct, and always search something new beyond...

Re: Vertical and horizontal speed? How to practice thinking fast?

Re: Need help with brushes (Ed Soph technique)

Try Powerballs in both hands. They give you lot of understanding about how everything rotates, both directions, up and down, forward and backward.

Re: How do I incorporate rudiments into playing? Fills?

Select rudiment, create fill-pattern you like, play something few bars, then try to play your fill, return back to something, repeat.

Re: Some of my old drum notes and ideas

Great topic.

I think this is a much better map for Morse-code. Much easier to remember, at least for me when I start to study this issue. I'm not so good at it, but maybe this topic gives me some...

Re: Toms ring too long

Well, Moongel is good, but if you want more with your money, you could buy some jellystuff from any adult store. Those things there are same material, and you get it much more. There are many kind of...

Nice to see you.

Re: Book of all Sticking Permutations?
