Yes. I think it's called Epilepsy.

Re: The Logical Order of Study

Even with your second shift schedule, you certainly could meet with the teacher to explain your situation. You're not the first person to deal with this challenge, and that first meeting will be...

Re: NARD Snare Book - Interpretation Help

I agree with Todd's suggestions. As far as the sticking in the 1st two bars of 'The "Strut" Street March' that, (IMO) is to make sure you play a Flamaque in the 2nd bar, not a Flam Paradiddle with...

Re: Order of study: moeller, finger technique, push-pull

This assumes that Moeller, "finger technique" and push-pull are three techniques jockeying for the title of "most fundamental". What if you discovered there's a technique that precedes them? Would...

Re: Triplets NOT in groupings of 3 or 6 beats. How do you feel the bar line??? HELP!

Something I did a few years back, along these lines. There's a little timing flub toward the end, but you should get the idea:

Re: Is it acceptable to audition for multiple groups/bands?

I'll be the "final" arbiter of this thread. Imagine being abducted by aliens, had your memory wiped, but still had the physical impressions of interviews and questionable jobs in the back of your...

Re: Can someone explain this Joe Morello technique to me?

Yup. I could listen to his brushes all day:

Re: Fast ride cymbal RRR RRR how to get that tight chilled sound over 140 bpm

This is a really good article. I like how you describe the limitations you were facing, how John helped you break down the problem and the concept(s) behind the technique.

Re: Question for buzz roll masters

My pleasure evilash 1996! This is a challenging bit and if you're playing on a drum set snare, there'll be some adjustment. So here's something that might give a better idea of the buzz and taps...

Re: Question for buzz roll masters

It forces you to put a quiet, accurate buzz between taps. So you're going from a relaxed tap to a moderately to highly pressured buzz and immediately back to a relaxed tap. Basically you're playing...

Re: Donny Gruendler here!

Looks like a spammer just posted. Even so, it gave me a chance to revisit Donny's page and his words of wisdom. Plus I just downloaded a really good PDF he posted over 5 years ago!

You're welcome, Push Pull Stroke.

They definitely have the buzz!

Re: Question for buzz roll masters

You get a closeup here of a snare playing (and tenor flourishing) around 2:00 from this 1948 film. Around 1:10 there's a closeup of the bass drums. I knew someone who played during the calfskin...

Re: Question for buzz roll masters

It's different in Pipe Band. The whip cream roll doesn't sound good on Pipe Band drums, because the top head has a very specific sweet spot to play on. The Kevlar heads we use are ridiculously...

Re: Bit overwhelmed - what should I ALWAYS practice?

Other than maybe some ritual warm up to get your head in the game or loosen your limbs, I don't think there's a be-and-end-all set of books you ALWAYS practice. But you should ALWAYS have an intense...

Re: Snare vs practice pad

The pad is a supplement, not a substitute for the drum. Certainly this means doubly so for the drum set, where you're using all of your limbs, doing unison strikes, moving laterally, up and down to...

Re: Double stroke dead zone

The idea of a pillow or Moongel pad is to pluck the sticks off of the surface, not slam them into the fabric. You'll have a different top speed and high end comfort zone speed than you would on a...

Re: Breaking news : Simon Phillips' home burned down !!

Ditto. I'm surprised by some of the assumptions on this thread. Yeah, he's really milking the system. To date he's raised $67,210:
