Re: Need a song to play

No, he needs songs from more than one genre for a music school audition. I guess Enter Sandman covers the rock/contemporary genre and then he wants a jazz song for another genre. How about "St....

Re: Q on Beyond Bop Drumming Notation

Re: Help with jazz soloing and trading fours

I prefer to just keep the 2 and 4 on the hi-hat, and I would recommend this, as pretty soon you are going to want to throw your bass foot into the mix for your trades. With a little practice, I...

Q on Beyond Bop Drumming Notation

I'm working on Three-voice Comping in 8th Notes out of John Riley's Beyond Bop Drumming, pages 10 and 11. I am unsure of how to play the last three examples on page 11 with regards to the notation...

Re: 8 Hour Practices

Hopefully, he's thought this far ahead as far as his financial situation. Since he's talking about starting this summer, I suspect he may be a student.

Re: 8 Hour Practices

Go for it! I did 6 hours a day for 6 days a week for months at a time, but never 8 hours for 40 days straight. Good luck, it will be a spiritual experience and great for your chops. I generally...

Re: Straying away from splang-a-lang

First, I would only stop your splang-a-langing if you already have really great control of your bass drum and snare comping. You need to have two way independence down really scary good before...

Re: Throne setup

For me, after lots of experimentation and after looking at other drummers, I have come up with the following:

Re: Guitar Center now carries Bosphorus!

There's nowhere in Atlanta to get Bospherus, so if GC's gonna carry them, then so much the better. Of course GC put all of the Mom 'n' Pop stores, save one, out of business a loooong time ago in the...

Re: Giving Private Lessons...

It's true that the best performers aren't always the best teachers. Look at the people that become coaches in pro sports. The best players aren't usually the ones that end up as coaches, it's the...

Anyone order off of www.fermatamusic.com? I saw joeybeats mention them on this forum and so I checked them out. They have some crazy prices on a couple of items. Just wondering if anyone has used...

Re: Piano Fundamentals applied to drums

I don't know about that. Alot of people call the piano "a drumset with 88 drums". The piano is so percussive. Just take a listen to Thelonius Monk.

Re: Groove Essential Jazz Question!!!!

OK, you've never played jazz before, so I'm going to slow down the explanation.

To answer your original question: Tommy IS NOT playing the groove as it is written on the poster. Let me repeat:...

You live in Durham? I think you should have spent the money on a ticket to the Duke-UNC game in February.

Re: image - any of you guys think its important to look good on stage?

Yeah, it's important to look good on stage. Unfortunately, we live in a world were looks are important. I think it's good to "look the part" or else people may not give you a chance... i.e. if you...

It's almost a waste of time to practice exercises out of Stick Control on your practice pad without a mirror!

Re: Reggae Drumming

Tommy Igoe has a very nice explanation of basic one-drop drumming on his Groove Essentials. The explanation given on this post is very good, but it's always nice to see the technique. Some of the...

Re: Weirdest mistakes you've made?

One time I was practicing while trying to eat some cereal (I had just gotten out of bed) and I accidently used my drumstick instead of the spoon to dip in for my next bite. Needless to say it didn't...

Re: Rock Drummers-Jazz backgrounds

I'm not sure that Mitch had much of a "secret" jazz life, and YES, it certainly made him better. In the 3 piece that was The Experience, his crosstalk with Hendrix was pretty vital to keeping the...

Re: How big is your bald spot?

I can't answer that, but I've seen the guy's DVD.

I think that a certain bald spot indicates bad technique only if it doesn't correlate with what your'e trying to do. If you listen to a rocker...

Re: How big is your bald spot?

Mine was A, but I was worried that the head would break, so I started playing on the non-bald spots and now it's B.

In Stanton Moore's DVD he talks about how he likes to play all over the head to...
