Re: How to get rid of rust on rims?

Tin foil and vinegar, wd40 to polish. Many would disagree though.

Re: The Dilla Feel ala (questlov/chris dave etc)

Emulating the Dilla feel demands strong independence in the hihat hand. When the hihat is anchored dynamically and time-wise, the snare and kick can be pushed back and forth as required. Mega tough,...

Re: Florian Alexandru-Zorn - New DVD "The Brush Revolution"

This. Seems a real mistake to trail a drum instructional video and not include any playing. Remember that DCI video trailer from the 90s? I must have bought 4 VHS off the back of the 20 second...

Re: It's Official - Vinnie no longer with Ludwig

I can't understand why he can't go out as a free agent and be done with it. Surely when he tours or records in the wider world he has a big enough budget available to afford him the support he needs.

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

In my experience, twice-weekly rehearsal schedules are hard to maintain with amateur players, it's simply too big a commitment to stick to week in week out, especially where there's a lot of new...

Re: Is the Moeller technique only about accents?

True, it's alway surprising how controversial a technique it seems to be. Learning it thoroughly is important, and that requires a little bit of dedication at the start. But quickly enough it's...

Re: Is the Moeller technique only about accents?

But unless your style of drumming is strictly one one dynamic level it's an essential technique to acquire.

Re: Time exercises

Remember to use your ears; compare a groove that you've recorded to a groove played by one of the greats. Analyse the differences.

Re: Is the Moeller technique only about accents?

Yes, if a group of notes only involve one dynamic then Moeller could not be involved.

Re: FAO John Riley's Art of Bop Drumming users

This is what i assumed must be the case in this particular chart, is it generally safer to assume that a section, when indicated to be played multiple times, should have repeat markings observed?

Ok, got an enquiry/ point of confusion that will only make sense to players who use the Art of Bop Drumming playalongs, specifically 'Last Week', the medium tune that employs an ABA form.

Re: The Douchiest Drummers of All Time

Any article that involves 'douchiest' and 'bro-dog' gets my vote. Exceptionally harsh on Bozzio though, at once criticising him for having loads of drums, and then hitting them all.

Re: Hip Hop Drumming!

Hip-hop is as 'faddy' as dance music in the use of sample vs. synth. There'll be another day where sample-heavy beats are fashionable again, and hopefully sooner rather than later. Mainstream hip-hop...

Re: Do 'Conditioner' Exercises Work

Again, it's quality over quantity. It's a rare breed of musician that could maintain a worthwhile focus over that many repetitions from the word go. Build up, get the most out of each sticking....

Re: Do 'Conditioner' Exercises Work

Ensure that you are constantly evaluating the quality of the repetitions as you play them, both by feel and sound - stick heights, hand form, dynamic consistency, space between the notes, accuracy to...

Re: AARGH! NOT burying the beaters at slow speeds, impossible??

Make sure you're confident that the technique you settle on is a correct one before you start doing thousands of repetitions. Whether burying or not, the technique, form and position of your foot...

Re: "Get Lucky" - John JR Robinson with Daft Punk

There's some surprising session credits on that album, like the glory days of sessioning.

Can't stand this track though, the vocoder section is cringeworthy. The groove is undeniable.

Re: Practice (not so much technique)

As long as you enjoy doing it then it's worthwhile. If you're practicing to attain a pro standard then you're probably wasting your time. Are other aspects of your playing lacking? Groove, tone?...
