Re: 32nd notes in a 16th note fill - singles or doubles?

Good post. Singles, doubles, they're tools. More often than not there's no one way to do something but I obviously try to use the best tool for the job. The best technique to use depends on so many...

Re: Great hip hop drummers?

Well I'll make the obvious Royster Jr mention, but he's not really a hip hop drummer I suppose, it just happens to be his current gig ?

Re: Neil Peart

Neil's known for being a heavy hitter, as mentioned many times here. And wouldn't you know it, when I'm playing rush covers I play his songs the same way; harder and with more snap than most other...

Re: leaving the kick beater on the bass head?

The only time I do anything that resembles burying the beater is on the last beat of a fast pattern.

Re: Neil Peart

Newfound appreciation for Peart here. I've read criticisms that his playing is too mechanical, nevertheless it's perfect for Rush. Anything else would sound too generic, or too aggressive, or just...

Re: Any tips to develop an ankle stroke?

The key here is to develope the technique of being in a heel up ready position just prior to the stroke, as apposed to waiting to raise the heel as part of the stroke itself. If raising the heel is...

Re: Comparing oneself to others (drummers)

Compare and compete are not synonomous. Nothing wrong with comparing, it can help you improve.

Re: can anybody on earth transcribe this satanic groove?

I'm probably wrong but it sounds to me like three against four but the 3s on the hats are played on the "ands" of the three count.

Re: Bass drum and double hitting

I struggled with this for a while. A few things that helped resolve the issue were slightly higher spring tension, very small adjustment to beater angle away from head, and developing more of a snap...

I don't look at it as playing one way or the other. I'll lead with whichever hand allows me to best do a particular beat or fill. There are definately things you can't do otherwise, which should be...

Re: How not to drop sticks

I drop sticks so often it's downright weird. It's not that they slip or anything like that, I just let them go! Weeeee. Funny but damned frustrating.

Re: Double bass technique observations

I agree that too many really amazing double bass players are not spectacular up top. Including some big names, whom I won't mention because it would be rude and unnecessary.

Re: Using less hat

I assume you play cross handed? If relieving your strong side wrist is the goal, then playing open hand occasionally is one option. I played open handed from day one, then learned to play cross...

Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

I can't stand it if there's any play at all in the throne I feel like I'm leaning off one side or the other.

As Dr Crinkle noted I also prefer a large enough seat that my legs are partially...

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

Could be that not muffling gives you more to work with when miking the kit and mixing.

Miking? Micing? Help me out here, lol.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

You need to know a lot more music theory to master other instruments. I can go much, much further on drums, technically and musically, with a basic understanding of time tables and rudiments.

heel up vs heel down vs flat footed

I play heel up but with my heels very low. I've seen some heel up players with heels really high and I'm wondering if that's heel up then maybe my "heel low" style is actually "flat footed or heel...
