Re: 8 Hour Practices

I would get so burnt out from playing that much I would feel like I'm getting worse. You need to have rest days from the drums, they are as important as the time you put in behind the kit.

Re: For the Young Guns: What Is Your Goal?

Re: Rock Band as Beginner Independence Training

I personally think it's a waste of time. It's like Guitar Hero, if you want to play an instrument, pick up the real thing and do something constructive.

Re: Dave Weckl

I feel the opposite. I find his solos tell a story and no matter how many times I listen to them I always here something new and musical. One of my favourite soloists.

Me too, Dave spawned...

Re: Don't understand latin drumset playing.

If you're new to it, I'd suggest picking up Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials. It will give you a nice taste of a few of the more popular latin rhythms as applied to the drumset. It sure helped me when...

Re: How much time does everybody practice?

The usual is 1.5 to 2.5 hours a day, and Fridays I usually don't practice. I never force myself to practice though. If I'm forcing myself to practice it takes the fun out of it for me, which is the...

Re: Mike Portnoy

I love the parts he makes for the songs, they fit perfectly, all the time! I'm not fond of his soloing at all though. But in his case, drumming for the song is the most important!

Ever watch a video or movie that makes you feel embarassed? Even though it has absolutely nothing to do with you?

Re: Indepedence Exercises

Ostinatos are a great way to gain independence, and they are a blast to play!

Anyone looking to get into some serious independence stuff should check out Minnemann's book "Extreme Interdependence"

Re: 2 crashes, no ride?

Speaking of Thomas Lang and rides, he RARELY uses a ride. Its all dependent on the music you are playing and what it calls for.
