Congratulations, Pat....it looks like they've taken your original design and brought it to the next level.

Does that mean that those of us who have the original design own something special??? (lol)

Have they changed the feel of the rubbers or are the rubber pads they used the same as on the old design??

Once again, Pat; congratulations!! I think with the Ludwig name on it, it's gonna get a lot of exposure world wide.

Pat,

Does that mean my original P4 is going to be a collectors item? :-)

The pads are the same, a little different color, but response is similiar. The rounded look is much hipper, and it's the same space between levels!

Default Feel

Hey Pat,
First of all this is Michael from the UCNP lessons. I'm really digging the New Orleans second line roots grooves you've got me working on. You do a great job tracing the history of grooves back to their origins and I'm having a blast becoming familiar with it all.

Second - I've got a couple questions here for you (or everyone) that may benefit us to get some insight into. I was watching a Tommy Igoe video and he was recommending using your imagination to picture particular atmospheric contexts while you play to influence the feel of the groove. For example, I think he was talking about the bossa nova, and he said when he pictures himself at the beach and really gets into the beach vibe it manifests in his drumming as the proper feel for that particular groove. Do you use visual imagery to influence your feel, or do you just feel it, plain and simple? Question 2: I have heard other drummers mention the importance of breathing mindfully, or even in time with the beat, as a way to facilitate I guess both keeping correct time and really getting into the feel of the groove. How important is syncing breath with the tempo to you? Or do you even think about it when you play?

Thanks for your input; see you soon.
Michael

Hi, Mike!

Yes, I do think that some of those imagery things help young drummers at times..although it may sound a little cliche.."picture yourself on a beach with a drink dancing with a beautiful brazilian girl"...for instance, that may make you RUSH the tempo, instead of lay back, if you know what I mean ;)

In general, I am vibing on the other musicians, who help keep the tempo in the pocket...watch and feel them, and put yourself in the moment of the groove..When I first realized this is when I was playing with Patti LaBelle, and at first, I was real excited, and the guys were like, "Hey, it's rushing a bit"..and after I started watching their body language and things, I started to put myself into their zone, and it really helped me settle in.

Breathing wise, I don't think about it too much..It is pretty relaxed and normal. I don't find myself breathing in time, or holding my breathe at all..

except when the bass player is new ;)..ANYWAY..

Hope that helps!

FYI..

"Hands, Grooves, & Fills" is FINALLY IN STOCK at ALL GUITAR CENTER LOCATIONS in the US!

Now when you go into any GC store, you will see it, and actually be able to BUY it!

It took a year, but they are finally on board.

THANKS to everyone who requested it, making it one of the most popular DVD/Books from Hudson Music

All the Best

Great to hear from you and thanks! "Learn to Read Rhythms" is wrapping, and we are still between 2 companies! It has piqued alot of interest, to say the least. You will get an email as to the status.

All the best!

Hi, everyone

My signature pad, the P4, is finally available to order in the States! It's been a long road to bring it to fruition, but Ludwig did an amazing job.

You can get now at Just Drums, and it will ship by the end on June, beginning of July


Thanks, and I hope you will check it out!

When I get more details about overseas ordering, I will let you know.

If you are a dealer, please contact your Ludwig rep to get it in your store!

TADA!!

They arrive today. Ludwig tells us we're the first and only to have them so far. I'm shipping 6 out today!

Pat - nice touch. I didn't know they would have a threaded post underneath! Very nice. You can attach it to any 8mm cymbal stand.

Pics and video coming soon.

It will be released in the fall, and we will ship all of the pre orders in August..Maybe end of July. There will be a big marketing push from the company (which is one of the more popular..),

Thanks for hanging in, I think you will be VERY happy with the results!

Thanks, Phil..It's a unique project that will help drummers to read visually, as well as with an eBook. Like having getting a book that comes with a teacher..

When are you in NYC?

Yep, that is in the works. It will probably be available on a "limited release" basis to a handful of on line dealers and shops.

I am awaiting final prototypes and will a picture and specs soon.
It's called Pat Petrillo's Groovalution.Hope to see you soon!

Hi, all

Just a heads up that the P4 is finally arrrived in the warehouse at Ludwig and is ready to ship worldwide!

Of course you can get it from our friend Shane here:


http://www.justdrumsonline.com/store...ctice-pad.aspx


Or, ANY dealer from this list. If they don't have it yet, just tell them to order it..

http://www.ludwig-drums.com/dealerlocator/

Thanks to ALL of you who have picked up on the pad and like it so much. I think it will be a very unique addition to the selection out there now.

All the Best

New Hudson Music "Hands, Grooves, & Fills" YouTube site!


I invite those of you who have "Hands, Grooves, & Fills" to join the group and post a video of yourself playing along to the tracks to the site! It would be great to hear how you all play the tracks, and also interpret them on your own

http://www.youtube.com/group/handsgroovesfills

Let's hear and see your grooves! Keep up the great work

Pat

There is a fill movement you do in "Hands, Grooves, & fills" I can't quite get how you are doing it..It's the orchestration of the split sextuplet #6. It's the paradiddle diddle type movement. In the video, it looks like you might be also throwing and extra triplet in there in between the sticking some times..is that what it is? if you could take the time to respond, that would be excellent

LOVE your playing and HGF is SO inspiring and helpful everytime I sit down to practice.

Thanks so much..

Hey Jason

Thanks for the support and kind words..Glad you are really into HGF!

So, I think the fill you are talking about, the paradiddle diddle fill movement I use, can be orchestrated so many ways, but on the DVD, I think there is a point where I add an extra triplet after the initial fill and continue over the bar line..So, it goes..

(B = Bass)

R L R R L B R L B, R L R R L B R L B, R L R R L B,

Hope that helps!! Keep up the great work.

Wow, didn't the pre-ordering start last year around this time?

Still no clips or excerpts to see what's being sold.

Grunter, you should have yours delivered in person as long as you have waited.

I share your impatience as I've had mine on order for what seems like an eternity...but I have a hunch it's going to be worth the wait as Pat usually shoots for perfection and that takes time. But I like the "personal delivery" option for those of us who've waited forever.

GOOD NEWS!! There will be clips by the end of the week! Getting clearance to go ahead with this is not always easy, but, non the less...It's about ready!

..and it WILL be worth the wait! HD, too!

Thanks to all of you...

Awesome! I see on the Vater site you've been using the Power 5A's for now? The girth is what I'm after, not entirely sure on the 16 1/2" length... I've tried sticks that long and they feel very shoulder-heavy... hope yours is a better compromise! :)

Well the end of the week has come and gone. Perhaps you should actually have a product before you spend a year hyping it.

Have any of you that pre-ordered recieved any updates on the status of your purchase?
