Good idea.
I'm pretty much a Jazz guy these days, who's history mimics Gvdadrummasum's.
I go about it a little differently, though.
For starters I play Ludwig and Paiste, yet get some nice results.
I play left footed, so I'm FOREVER transposing lessons, but after this much time, I'm used to it.
Been watching some interesting vids on youtube lately.
I especially like this one utilizing the paradiddle-diddle.
Played a little differently than I remember, but it's been a while, so I'm obviously wrong.
In other news, found this cool website.
Also, bought a wonderful compilation album called "Arrival"...

Features Herb Ellis, Joe Pass, Ray Brown and Jake Hanna.
It's a compilation of two live albums this group did, which were - Seven Come Eleven and Jazz Concord.
Next purchases will be coated Weathermaster Heavy for the snare drum and VF AJ2 sticks. I wanna compare them to the 5a's I have now.

That's about it from me!

I like using a paradiddle-diddle this way.......this guys video is not great quality....but a great use of the rudiment .....very affective

paradiddle-diddle comes up a lot in jazz for me......for instance as an uptempo comp....putting it between the ride cymbal and snare drum .....starting it on 2 as Elvin often would

and I must check out that recording..

Jake Hanna was such a beast
