Re: New from Ludwig!

I think it's just more along the lines of Ludwig going with what will never go out of style. The classic look they have is also simple look, and it looks good, and it will never not look good.

Re: Jazz Drums


Since the overwhelming consensus seems to always jump to "Kind of Blue," don't get discouraged if you hate it or in general don't like it. Jazz has multiple styles that you gotta look around...

Re: Is this kit a good trade for this kit? For all vintage kit lovers!

I have seen some terrible bearing edges on vintage kits, and yet they still sounded great with that unique flavor. You aren't looking to sell it for profit in the future I assume, so I would say just...

Re: Where did the 'skip-note' in Jazz come from?

The pattern came from washboard players of the 20s. Kenny Clarke wasn't the first to use it, but he was the first one to really popularize it and make it a standard of time keeping.

Re: "drummers don't need to read notes"

He's right drummers don't need to read notes.

However, musicians, need to learn to read notes.

Re: Slingerland 1970's Chrome Snare

If it's chrome over brass then you got yourself a very nice snare.

If it's just chrome, then eh, you could have done better for a not a whole lot more money.

This isn't even worthy of being in the off topic section, let alone the General Discussion.

Re: Groove Essentials V.1 - New Orleans 2nd Line

The groove is just to give you a basic idea, you don't have to play it note for note. It's just to get the feeling, so technically you could play whatever you want instead of trying to nail it the...

Interesting, this thread is over 2 years old and you found it with some interesting information to boot.

Re: Colleges? I know this has been done to death!

In my opinion, there is a small chance of a successful career in music, especially in jazz. If you love jazz then you don't need a classroom to break it down for you anyway. Just listen and play it...

Re: Cream's Ginger Baker trashes legends in Classic Rock Magazine, Issue #142, March

I get my jazz fix from Ginger Baker, good thing Joe never did drum battles so Ginger didn't have to embarrass him.

Come to think of it, it really is a shame Joe never part took in drum battles..At...

Re: Technique Vs. Showmanship

Showmanship is important.

Technique is also important.

They have to co exist together equally to be the most effective as a musician, not one vs the other.

Re: ...History/origins of the spangalang

My guess is the rhythm came from washboard players, and slowly works its way in during the 30s and its eventually set in stone by the 40s as the main time keeping method.

From what I heard from...

Re: Vintage Tama snare?

To be honest, the only thing you're gonna get out of it, is if you put it together and it sounds good to you.

It's not really vintage, and it has no real demand on the market.

Re: Help Identifying Ludwig Kit

It's a high quality, classic maple (or birch maybe), Monroe keystone set. Not too old.

Although the sizes are really unflattering I must say. But they should sound pretty good.

Re: Ultimate Embarrassment!!!

I tanked a Take 5 solo before.

I chose to go no piano backing, big mistake. I've seen Joe do it and thought I'd give it a try. Unfortunately I had no where near the ability to keep inner ability...

Re: Ragtime drums

Not necessarily the same, but as far as drums go, you approach it the same way. Ragtime, Dixieland, Second Line, they all fall under traditional style jazz. There are of course small stylistic...

Re: Ragtime drums

The big difference in Ragtime jazz is you will rely less on timekeeping methods like the swing pattern and more on press rolls, various rim and woodblock rhythms. and small splash cymbal patterns to...
