Re: Too soon to bring in the BD?

What would be the minimal set up to begin applying rudiments to the drum kit? Would snare, bass, hi-hat and ride suffice?

I can see the wisdom of beginning to develop independence and patterns...

Re: Too soon to bring in the BD?

So many great replies here, and I've read them all with great interest. The fact is, I'm far from bored with my pad and the rudiments--(somewhat obsessed is more like it.) As long as I'm enjoying the...

Re: Too soon to bring in the BD?

Just for the record, I think it's a good idea to cite my source for the Weinberg quote:

In my job as drummer of the band CRACKER, I had occasion to...

Too soon to bring in the BD?

I read where Max Weinberg is to have said that the beginner should work on the practice pad for a year before touching the drum kit. I am actually adhering to that advice, and for four months have...

Re: building speed

I've been working for about a week now with Ted MacKenzie's "The Ultimate Drummers Workout". Does anyone else know about this? It supposed to improve strength and control by practicing rudiments...

Sandy Nelson

He was part of the California scene in the late 50's early 60s. Had a couple of drum featured hits: "Teen Beat" and "Let there Be Drums". Pretty simple, but catchy and influential.

I don't know...

Re: Pat Petrillo here!

I have his book and DVD package, and the fills are all notated for high tom, snare, floor tom and bass drum. I wondered the same thing, as I too have only a four piece.

I haven't made it into the...

Re: Gladstone Technique?

If I'm understanding the technique correctly, it has occured to me that each and every stroke is to be struck hard enough to bring the stick to the full (15 inch) vertical position. I am thinking of...

Re: Gladstone Technique?

This caused me to go back to the Tiger Bill site. I'm starting out "loose" with the sticks, so nothing to re-learn as far as that goes. But I now think I haven't been concentrating on the stick...

Re: The "Groovallegiance" Sessions...

Thanks for putting up those great pics. I can't wait to hear this!

I too have a set of 60's Ludwigs and Supraphonic in those sizes and have been wondering what heads to put on them to bring out...

Re: Pat Petrillo here!

Someone here on the forum suggested your Hands Grooves and Fills dvd as a good instructional method for someone starting out. I checked out the youtube clips, and your approach just seemed to speak...

Re: Good dvd after Jojo's?

That's sound advice, and your point is well taken. Brennen pretty much nailed it as far as my feelings about teachers are concerned, but yeah, hands on instruction with a qualified teacher would be...

Re: Good dvd after Jojo's?

Thanks for that advice. No, I haven't bought any drumming books yet. Stone's Stick Control would seem to be the one most would recommend as a first book. I've been compiling a list of the top books...

Good dvd after Jojo's?

Now that I'm learning finger exercises and how to hold the sticks properly, I'm starting to think about about the next step. I'm leaning towards Jeff Queen's "Playing With Sticks" to help me start...

Re: double stroke vid

Another good video. I like the basic formula--a slow close-up and explanation of hand technique, followed by the application. Fast then (THANK GOODNESS) slowed down and sped up again. Lots of videos...

Re: Better technique Video

Hi Brennen, first of all thanks for making and posting that. Your point about "not thinking about pulling the stick up, just throwing it down (rebound)" is excellent. The shot of your back fingers...

Re: Mr. Drums "Buddy Rich"

Ditto the Tonight Show appearances. I think Johnny Carson did alot to make some of us younger viewers at the time aware Buddy. I think it's great that Johnny really liked the drums and played a...
