Re: The jazz ride pattern

Very true Tony, I agree. I'm just suggesting that what I suspect is probably larry's slight difficulty with comping against a jazz ride pattern compared to a shuffle is simply because of that space...

Re: The jazz ride pattern

Re: What brands holds their value the most

That's interesting, you'd think they'd be popular being vintage RCs. I wonder if it's the sizes? I bought my cherrywood recording custom kit new in 1992/1993 as I remember being inspired by dave...

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

100% yes and wish I'd done more of it years ago.

I've posted several videos playing to backing tracks, and days or weeks later I watch again and think they all suck. And even when something...

Congrats todd. Now you need to go do 4000 pataflaflas to celebrate. But that might be a bit silly. :D

Re: Are We Just Being Silly?

Nailed it. While the concept of 'hitting drums' might conjure up to some people images of animal from the muppets and thus be considered childish, (and hilarious, which animal is :D) it's not that...

Re: Drum throne height mechanics back pain

Vinnie Colaiuta back in his 1970s Frank Zappa days was a crazy low rider.
I believe he even had his throne cut down.

Re: Have You Heard of Brady Drums?

Kaide's Brady snare in his videos sounds amazing.



Lol, I'd laugh if you bought a snare from another company, it then broke and you had to pay to get it repaired.

Re: Weaker hand problem

I once turned down some band called the Beatles. Good thing really, they were going nowhere.
