Re: Rhythm Library

I checked his website a couple weeks ago and saw the demo of his open/close technique and it looked interesting, it looked very efficient. I think I'm gonna devote a little time to this and see what...

Re: Rhythm Library

Seems like no one's heard of it? It's a system to play rudimental solos on the snare drum or fills or solos on the drum set. The patterns produced are a continuous stream of notes with accents but no...

Rhythm Library

Is anyone familiar with the Rhythm Library Method by Gordy Knutdson? I practice it on the real feel pad with rudimental patterns and on the set with all four limbs. Once you get the hang of it, it's...

Anyone know where I can find this?

On my old computer I once downloaded a free app that would slow a song down without changing the pitch. That computer is now toast and I don't remember what that app was called.

Re: When does sound become music

To me, sound becomes music when it grabs something inside me, when it moves me emotionally and grabs my attention. This usually happens when I can sense that the musicians are making this "sound"...

Re: Has This Ever Happened To You?

Interestingly, I never heard Phil Rudd playing and thought that he should be doing more in any song. He plays 1 and 3 on the bass drum and 2 and 4 on the snare drum like he invented it. And...

Re: Brian Downey

Very happy to see Brian's profile added to the site. One of my all time favorites. He introduced me to shuffles ( although way back then I didn't even know what they were called )

Has This Ever Happened To You?

We hear and read a lot about "overplaying" and "playing for the music", and in the majority of cases I agree with those things. Nothing sounds worse than when the drummer steps all over a vocalist or...

Re: musical notation question

I'm not as concerned with how it sounds so such as how to write it out. But it did sound interesting. How many times have we heard a song in 4/4 with an 8th note grove then for a fill the drummer...

Drum Shell History Questions

If I understand things correctly, back in the day some drum companies used shells made from combinations of different woods on their pro level drums. And the old Tama Imperialstar was a pro line kit...

Re: musical notation question

If I remember correctly it wasn't just a matter of doubling up the 8th notes into 16th notes because the whole feel changed during the fill. It kind of had a 16th note feel to it because it suddenly...

Re: musical notation question

Yes, thank you. I was wondering about the number 4 over them, just as you would notate triplets with the number 3 above them when playing in 4/4. It looks like you wrote them as 8th notes. Maybe the...

musical notation question

I was watching a youtube vid the other day and a guy was describing a concept that I don't believe I know how notate ( write down in music form ). He was talking about playing a basic 6/8 blues beat...

Re: 80s swingstar vs 80s imperialstar

But didn't Tama expand the swingstar line? I seem to remember ads that showed double bass multi tom sets not long before they were discontinued.

I never had any experience with imperialstars, but...

Re: 80s swingstar vs 80s imperialstar

Good points that I wasn't aware of: I never knew that other companies used the exact same shell in the past for all their lines. I knew the swingstars didn't have internal mufflers ( except for the...

80s swingstar vs 80s imperialstar

What are the major differences between these two lines? I'm talking about the old 80s versions, not any of the newer incarnations.

Here is what I know about them, if I miss anything please correct...

Re: Double Bass Left Foot Strength

I posted this in a recent thread about a weak left hand, but I'm using this same method for double bass too, and it's working well: Get a copy of "Stick Control" , go through the book and circle all...

Re: How to improve the left hand.

I'm in the same boat, here's what I'm doing and it's been working well: I went through "Stick Control" and circled all the exercises that have the majority of the strokes played by the left hand. I...

Re: Playing behind/ahead of the beat?

This has been an interesting thread. I've wondered about this concept for a long time and had question about it that really bugged me. I think it may have been answered in this thread. We hear of (...
