Re: Gavin Harrison here!

I had a quick question about recording. I know you often record drum tracks in your home studio and send them out to bands to complete the recording. I'm doing the same thing currently...

Finally got my first peak at the Anesthetize DVD. Fantastic performance, photography, production, mixing. Wouldn't expect any less from you guys. It brings back a lot of really great...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Neil Peart once said that musicians either sacrifice their lives for their music or their music for their lives.

I think most professional musicians have to strike a balance between gigs that...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

I'm not Gavin but thought I'd drop my 2 cents in. I think if a drummer chooses to play a lot of odd time signatures/illusions/rhythmic trickery etc., it is his responsibility to make it musical and...

I just had sort of a technical question. I was watching this vid:

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

I use M-Audio IE-10s and I used to have the same problem. But most IEMs allow you to reverse them (as in left earpiece in right ear and right earpiece in left ear) and wear them upside down. This...

I had a question about cymbal selection. I know you have used the Z Custom China for a long time; I have been a fan of it for years also. I noticed on Zildjian's website that they have...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

I can definitely see how it would be easier on your hearing. I play in a few bands that use backing tracks and originally I thought I was protecting my hearing by using isolation monitors but now I...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

I've been playing metal with a lot of double bass for a long time, so I think I can lend some advice on this.

An exercise I picked up from a good friend of mine has helped me a lot over the last...

Awhile ago you had mentioned that you are now using some prototype cymbal felts that prevent or at least help delay breakage of cymbals. Are they the 'Cympad,' (http://cympad.com/) or...

Re: Backing tracks

In addition to what Gavin recommended, if you purchase Drumhead magazine it usually comes with a CD that has at least one 'playalong track' where they give you the full band on one track of the CD...

I was wondering if you could clarify the snare roll that you do at 0:37 in this video:

Are you playing singles or doubles? I am having...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

It depends on what you are trying to do. If you are just playing to a click for the tightness you can run the headphone out of a Tama Rhythmwatch-style metronome to a headphone mixer with several...

Gavin could probably explain this a lot better than I could, but I spent years obsessing over every note in Deadwing.

Are you talking about the main riff, where the vocal pattern matches the...
