Re: The book that influenced you the most.

Oh yeah I like that one too.

For me it's Developing Dexterity for Mitchell Peters. It's basically a substitute for Stick Control. With this book I built a solid foundation, not for my house but...

Re: Back from New York - Dom Famularo, Billy Ward and more! Pictures inside!

Ok. It was quite a challenge, but I conquered it. This took me hours.

Re: "Drive"

I guess it's easier to think of a beat as two parts, beginning and end, because it's next to impossible to play every note on the EXACT center of the beat. Beginning drives, end grooves. Be mindful...

Re: "Drive"

I think drive is achieved by playing in front of the beat. I believe there are three parts to every beat: the front, the beat, and the back. Playing on the front makes it feel like your rushing if...

Re: Has anyone conquered Alan Dawson's Rudimental Ritual?

I didn't expect so many people to know of this great exercise. I have the first part memorized, up to the swiss rudiments. I used to play it once a day, not as a warm-up but immediately after my...

The ceiling fan in my room clicks steadily all through the night and I often find that the rhythm keeps me awake for a long time, not because it's annoying, just because it's rhythmic.

Re: Playing jazz w/ matched grip

I find it easier to play light grace notes with traditional grip because the weight of the stick is above your hand, rather than hanging below it. It's easier to drop down a light touch.

Re: Examples of good swing to play along with

By good swing, I'm referring to a solid "spang-a-lang." The spang-a-lang is easy to play, but difficult to play well. It takes a lot of work to develop a really swinging spang-a-lang. But I guess...

Examples of good swing to play along with

The idea behind this thread is to give songs that showcase good swing, for one to play along with to develop their own sense of swing. Don't list anything that is impossible to play along with, like...

Re: Kick Ass Jam Tonight!!!!

I don't know about the language in the title of this thread.

Zoned-in jams are the best. They're even better when you throw some d's on them.

Don't know if it's been said, I haven't read all 3 pages, but I'd throw in Mr. Harvey Mason on Herbie Hancock's Headhunters' track "Watermelon Man."

Re: the moler technique

Re: The New Breed: pratise routines

I mean on systems that call for the left hand playing the hat and the right playing snare, do the players that normally play right on hats practice these, and vice versa?

Re: So is ANYONE capable of drumming?

Think about it from a different perspective. To say that there will never be another drummer as good as Weckl is just plain stupid. Of course there will be.
