Re: Craigslist ads crack me up....

Lol, I'm sure it just means style, not necessarily chops. For example on guitar I've been told there are definite George Lynch and Steve Vai influences, and I would say I my style is very much like a...

Re: Heel toe question

Are you sure that's heel-heel toe-toe? Looks like heel-toe heel-toe to me.

Re: peace sells drum track

Pocket, I don't think the tempo is what rotherdrummer was refering to. The double bass toward the end sounds odd because the right and left are uneven volume.

The tempo increase you're refering...

Re: peace sells drum track

Not sloppy timing, just the left is louder than the right; either weaker right foot, or bad mix.
That album is sooo good. I'm not crazy about the drumming though, and the drum mix itself is...

Re: online "kit builder"

This one is great, thanks. It's perfect, cymbals are what I'm actuallly interested in.

online "kit builder"

Are there any others besides DW and Mapex? They're both nice, I'd just like to tinker with others too if they're out there.

Re: What's the Hardest Position to Fill in a Band?

Much of the time the challenge is not finding talent but finding someone who's style is what you're looking for. Unless it's a cover band I suppose.

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 necessarily 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: What technique changed your drumming dramatically?

Absolutely.

Even after 20 years away from the drums (playing guitar), when I started drumming again I was 10 times the drummer I was before simply from listening to music with great drumming. It...

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...
