Default Re: Loud ghost notes (still ghost notes?)

I'd still call those examples ghostnotes.

However, things don't have to be so black and white. As your playing progresses, you can move beyond thinking of dynamics as just "accents and non-accents."

Between the loudest accents and the quietest non-accents, there's an infinite range of dynamics, textures and tones to be had. It's all about finding out what you want to say and how you want to say it.

Of course, don't let this become an excuse for sloppy playing. Generally speaking, you're correct that ghostnoes should be freakin' gentle and when learning grooves, executing rudiments etc they should be practised as such.
