Re: What book are you currently reading?
Afro Cuban : Funkifying The Clave
or something. It's the one with Robbie Ameen. Great book! Makes it interesting. Also reading Buddy Rich's snare drum rudiments, started using loads of cool rhythms on the hi-hats since I got it. In my band there's a song we have. Used to play it 4/8
now I play it in a weird broken up sixteenths pattern.
1 2 3+4+ 1+2+3e+a4e+a with a few drags and open high hats aswell as toms. Pretty nifty! Need to record it one day to show you guys what it sounds like, it's like Danny Carey went into a pop-punk band.
Mapex, Sabian, Vic Firth.
