Default Re: Todd Sucherman here!

2bsticks and Basswood--

Thanks to you both. I'm flattered you guys are enjoying the DVD!

Stillgroovin--

MD Polls results issue ships the first week of May, FYI.

Supermac--

Thanks for the compliment on my segment from the MD Fest. To answer your questions, I really enjoyed everybody because every performer brought something different to the table. I think it was a very cool roster that covered a wide spectrum of drumming. I was honored to be there and I can't remember being that nervous or edgy in many, many years. High pressure indeed!

intheruff---

The paradidledidle or "Gary Chaffee 6B sticking" is indeed on my DVD. It appears in the pad section and then in the kit applications section. I think you'll find your answer by watching it. All the notes are at the same note rate---there's no slowing down anywhere. The main accents are on:
1, the A of 1, the & of 2,(for the right hand) 3, the A of 3, the & of 4 (for the left hand.) Make sense? Or really, the accents follow the bass drum rhythm of a Brazilian Biao. Try to find that part on the DVD and I'm sure it will be made clear. I know I used the para and a half example in the MD Fest DVD.

Thanks for your question and good luck!

Cheers,
Todd
