Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Your left hand looks all too familiar to mine. :) I hope this helps you too:

It looks like you're using a hybrid between French and German but your left stick seems to move outward and therefore...

Re: remembering a tune

To the OP: Maybe you can find some approaches in these articles, even though they were not written specifically for drummers.

Re: The jazz ride pattern

There are plenty of seasonsed jazz drummers on here who know this music inside out. I'm certainly not one of them, so take my recommendations with a grain of salt but I hope that it makes some sense...

Re: The jazz ride pattern

If you don't have Art of Bop Drumming, you can also read the first few pages in the preview on Amazon. Those few pages contain lots of good information and some exercises.

Re: Rogers Holiday restoration - looking for advice

The set has finally arrived. To give you an idea about the condition: When I took off the floor tom hoop, the rim of the head just crumbled to bits.
There is a lot of rust but the set should be okay...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Here's a couple of videos with quality Hip Hop that might appeal to you. Some of it is played by a band and lots of songs are rooted in Blues, Rock or Funk. I chose these videos because they're not...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

You say that your opinion is based on the music you've heard on "TV commercials, THE NFL, baseball, et.al." - I probably wouldn't enjoy any Hip Hop as well in that case since it's just bad music. And...

Thanks to everyone for the replies! I will try to avoid vinegar and steel wool and see what I can do with soap water and chrome polish.

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

Re: Wilcoxon No.114 WTF?!?

Hmm, the sticking in my edition is different. I have no idea how it is supposed to be played but I'd think that the first two lefts are double the tempo of the roll.
