Re: What drummers have marched?

Tommy Igoe was in the Bridgemen.

Steve Gadd was in the Rochester Crusaders.

Jojo is from Switzerland, so he probably didn't march any DCI corps. Plus he was already on the road at 18.

Re: Where can I get a snare weight?

Seems pretty silly to me, but that's just my opinion. I'm sure you could create something yourself that would be a quarter of the price.

Re: Beginner question about learning cajon and percussion technique.

I wouldn't really bother concerning yourself if you're playing it "right" or "wrong". As the previous comment said, just play around with various techniques. Watch a bunch of those videos you saw,...

Re: Jazz players - did we get this right?

I never really liked when people say "bop tuning". I get what it implies, but not all of the bop guys played with their drums tuned really high. Some of those dudes had huge drums. Listen to...

Re: Help with Black Page #1 (eleven-tuplets)

I've never seen the hand-written version. The one Todd is talking about is the one that I got when I played it, and I was under the impression that it was the original. I'll have to take a look,...

Eric Harland's "Odd Meter SHREDFEST"

Re: Using less hat

Certainly not a sin. It's been done many times before. Bear in mind though that even if you don't hear the hats, they can't be "felt", so it will definitely change the vibe, but that's not...

Re: Learning music vs practicing exercises

Not to sound old fashioned, but I think you can never go wrong by finding 10 minutes everyday for some rudiments. The PAS Rudiments sheet is broken down into four sections: Roll Rudiments, Diddle...

Re: Where are you and where is your mind?

Indeed. I really enjoyed that book.

The "Inner Game of Tennis" is really good too. There's an "Inner Game of Music" as well, but I don't like it nearly as much. Just read the original. The...

Re: How do i get bass drum to take my full downstrokes?

It's funny you should post this, as I recently had the exact same issue. I used to gig a lot on a 22' bass drum, playing really loud, and always burying the beater. But it's been a good 8 years...

Re: Edu Ribeiro solo

Yeah, dude, I hear you. I feel pretty good about mine too….until I listen to someone like Edu. And that speed! I have no idea how he does it, especially as he doesn't do the whole "push/pull"...

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

I was doing a gig at a club in China once, and the "house kit" was some ply wood, student model kit with only a kit snare and floor tom. The hi hat pedal had broken and was rigged together with some...

I recently did a transcription of Edu Ribeiro's soling on the Trio Corrente arrangement of Pixinguinha's "Lamento". It's got a killer samba feel, but the phrases themselves would cross genres pretty...

Re: Corder drums

I bought a used set of Corder drums about 12 years ago that I will NEVER get rid of. I use them all the time when I'm in the U.S. They're Jasper shells, 5-piece, 12', 13', 14' toms, 18' bass drum...

Re: Using a Metronome/Click on stage

I guess it really depends on the scenario you're playing in. I haven't used a click live for a few years. I just used to use the good ol' Dr. Beat. The old one with the big yellow wheel, and it...
