Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Partly. Before all of that, the first several pages of sticking patterns (green book) are the single double accents, etc. I worked out and memorized all of those, including the exercises. Beyond...

Re: Gary Chaffee PATTERNS: Your experiences and suggestions

Re: New vs Classic Supraphonic

You know, I'll try that today. I've got a couple nearly brand-new Ludwig medium coated heads collecting dust. I never liked them on the LM 411 or 402. They did sound different.

Re: Musicians Union?

close....with collective bargaining, (generally) both sides delegate bargaining power to a few hands, and both the union membership and the employer would abide by the contract. heh

Re: Your warm-up tips here!

Away from a kit or pad, jumping jacks and a jump rope. Best cardio is jumping and you will feel relaxed and loose afterwards.Stretching arms, legs, wrists and fingers..etc. also, practicing deep...

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Larry, I want to post on the "glass half-full" angle, assuming you haven't played yet.

you will be able to smash those things if need be, rather than lay back "for the gig" mentality of smaller...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Thanks, yeah I had checked out that site. I'd guess the stamp is 60's but have no experience dating them.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I bought this cymbal a few weeks ago, 22" A Zildjian. Any ideas, approximately, what year it was produced? It's a pretty good sounding ride.

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

^ ha

My opinion is, as long as you're getting the time and money's worth, why stop? If I feel that the value is no longer there, that is when I would stop.

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

Hard to tell from the video. It looks as though your right and left hands are not even. I can see it more easily when you switched to single strokes. Your fingers and grip appear much more loose and...

Re: IMPERIAL CYMBALS RIPPED US OFF!!!

Hi folks, I also suggest direct action dealing with this low-life. Word-of-mouth around the coffee shop and local area (if of course anyone is local) can go a long way, too. If it's a small enough...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

Slightly OT , but I bought a Gibraltar practice pad that sits on the leg, and its too wide/strap too long....the strap won't fasten to my leg. Ugh. I am 5'9 155 so I'd say design flaw.

Re: Worst song ever

Mainstream rap is annoying, and often stupid.

But I can definitely get into real artists such as Rakim, KRS, to Common Sense, Aceyalone (his first two solo albums are classic), etc.

Re: I Play Better When I Donít Practice

I've been practicing much less lately and my playing is more creative and smooth. I think it comes from moving away from the books and systems, and just playing. Those ideas all move to the...

Re: Worst song ever

I know it's pig-piling, but that Rebecca Black? "Friday" song was one of the worst songs I've ever heard.

But you can go though gneres like J-Pop and find equally terrible music and lots of it,...

Cool cat! Samson is a Maine Coon I adopted and he does the same thing. if I'm practicing rudiments in front of him, he'll paw at and grab the sticks. He also picks up and eats treats with his 6...

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?

To the snare/hi-hat question, you can also use pull-offs ( I guess it would be called) and make for a more linear oriented approach.

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

My advice: adjust the Roland bass drum pad if possible, assuming its mesh and can be loosened. Just a slight adjustment on mine and its very close to the feel of acoustics. Just be careful it is not...

Prohibition then! That's the point of the thread. Let's just ban the entire music industry...the PMRC could never take it far enough!

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

Kenny G. No particular song, the entire catalog.

Oh and AC/DC, I find their music and lyrics pointless and repetitive.

Great suggestions otherwise.

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

I don't gig or play in bands, (did an impromptu light jazz/blues thing last weekend with a bassist). I'm currently working on putting together a fusion project. And moving back to the Boston area. ;)
