Re: Mark Guiliana style

Have you seen his clinic on soloing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPqtWXJnL4o) on Youtube? That could be one place to start, although the concepts he goes over in it admittedly aren't terribly...

Re: Your next drum kit

I'm not much of a gearhead, but I like small kits, small drum sizes and natural finishes. Right now I have a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz with a maple finish. My next will definitely be a three-piece...

Re: Who is your favorite drummer(s)

My holy trinity at the moment would look something like Eric Harland, Mark Guiliana, and Morgan Ågren. Harland is one of the most musical drummers I've ever heard, past or present, living or dead....

Re: practicing French Grip technique help.

I wouldn't worry too much about incidental wrist movement. As long as you're focusing on fingers, they'll keep getting stronger and more adept at the motion and the wrist movement will most likely...

Re: All About D-Beat

That's unexpected. Do you have any examples of this, maybe on Youtube or something? That would be very intriguing.



Interesting. I've heard that at least Tompa, who founded Skitsystem,...

Re: All About D-Beat

Yeah come to think of it, I've never really heard a "mid-tempo" d-beat song.



Honestly I didn't know it ever got quite that widespread. Seems almost exclusively an English/Swedish thing. Very...

Re: best 25 drum books by Modern Drummer

First of all, as far as I can tell (not very far) it's a good list. The people compiling it obviously know a lot more about drumming and have collectively used many more books than I have. In fact, I...

Re: All About D-Beat

By starting this thread I don't mean to imply that this is all I'm working on. At the moment I spend much more time on John Ramsay's Alan Dawson book and Future Sounds by David Garibaldi. I spend...

Re: All About D-Beat

Well I'm not looking to get in a debate over what constitutes a genre; think of it more as shorthand to refer to a handful of punk bands that use this beat on a virtually exclusive basis, if that...

Re: Hi Hat Placement - 9 o'clock, 12 o'clock ??

I've been playing drums off-and-on for about six years now and I'm still struggling with the placement of those damn hats. I've tried to put them as far to the 12 o' clock position as I could, but,...

Re: Am I doing Blast Beats wrong?

True. And besides opening you up to more ideas, it lets you use your dominant hand (if you're right-handed) on the snare for a more powerful blast as demonstrated by the legendary Mike Smith (of...

All About D-Beat

Warning: Long post!

D-Beat is a rather small and limited subgenre of punk I've nonetheless become rather infatuated with for the last few months. It gets its name from the beat the drummer plays...
