It's true, he's looking REALLY good. When I saw him last year he sweat up a storm, and I assumed at least half of it was due to his weight.

Unless the DVD filming took part some time ago, he lost weight in quite a short time, hope he doesn't/didn't suffer from any desease.

Maybe he is just a sweating kind of guy no matter how much weight he might carry :). I sweat quite easily myself. (And I'm not any big at all)

Great clips: thanks for posting. For those of you worried about Keith, just know that Hudson filmed the DVD before the Summer and he got married in November! Who doesn't want to drop a couple of pounds before wedding photos immortalize you!

Does anyone here have suggestions for tuning my Yamaha SD-1403 brass piccolo to get that sound Keith's has?

This doesn't make any sense to me. Keith only exists because of Steve Gadd, and the greats before him. He has a style that is very much HIS, but it comes out of Gadd. The entire swampy marching feel that Keith is using was brought to us by Gadd in the 70s. Keith VS Gadd, is not fair to Keith. He'll always lose. Keith would sound completely different had Gadd not existed.
That brings me to people asking question's about Keith's sound. This is a problem if you're a real drummer. Keith's sound/set-up/feel, is his. YOU should get your own. Keith Carlock already exists. Music is a form of art, where only the original can survive. Be yourself.

That's a noodle scratcher ;)

Agree with your sentiment though, Carlock is such an inspirational player to listen to, it's pretty understandable to want to do what he's doing.

He's a rich vine of idea grapes to pick from though.

If you're a drummer who's checked out Gadd, Weckl and even Elvin Jones, you already know what he's doing. He plays nothing complex, it's all attitude and feel. It's the "WAY" he plays those things. So let's you learn Keith's licks? Then what? In the scene of music, people can call Keith for gigs. Keith works for $100 at 55 bar and $50 at the Bitter End in NYC. Why would they call you when they can get Keith?Playing like someone means nothing in the big leagues. Be yourself. Now if you have a totally different approach to the music, then...they'll call you. Because Keith can only do Keith. He can't do..YOU..

If Keith works for $100 at 55 Bar or $50 at the Bitter End I would be very surprised. I think most people here know that we have to play like ourselves. By they way, Keith does play some pretty complex pieces because..."Keith can only do Keith."

lol yes. If that is the case, he can keep his style, because i'm earning more with mine :)
Again Drumbob, you make your point earnestly, but to my mind Carlock would be one of the very hardest drummers to clone for the very reason that his feel is so unique. And i'd have to applaud your own ability when you suggest that he plays nothing complex - it's some of the very hardest material i've ever looked at. I just don't think the music scene is going to become overrun with players who sound just like Carlock. Influenced by most certainly.

The hand and foot patterns are regurgitated Gadd and Elvin. If you do some study in the field of the 2nd line rhythm you'll find much of Carlock there too. And..you haven't been to New York recently. There you would see the clones that have been watching Keith since his arrival in the 90s. The best is when you see young drummers setting up like him, when they're much shorter, and can barely reach the drums. LOL!!!

Default Keith Carlock - The Big Picture

Hi Guys - Keith's new DVD is a MUST see.

I got it last week and it's AWESOME.

Unfortunately though the 1st disk somehow got scratched and plays but I cannot access the 'eBook' file on it.

Can someone with the DVD PM me and possibly email it to me...?

Cheers guys!

And it looks like this:
On his DVD he doesn't use that snare. The 493 is a great drum, I've owned three of them and sold them on ebay. I missed it when I sold it so bought another.

Question! What is the K Zildjian he plays on his DVD. I think it is a 19 K isn't it?

Thanks!

It's hard to pinpoint exactly what he plays, since he's playing a lot of prototypes of already existing Zildjians, sometimes with certain features of multiple cymbals blended into one.

I think you're right though. On the DVD, I believe he plays (from left to right)

15" K Custom Special Dry Hi-Hats (Made just for Keith. They feature a small Constantinople like bell)
19" K Custom Special Dry Crash (Predecessor to 19" Special Dry Crash/Ride)
20" K Constantinople Medium
22" K Custom Special Dry Prototype (Again, just for him) Although this switches between a 20" Vintage K Istanbul Ride for certain tunes
22" K Constantinople (Not sure exactly which one)

I saw Keith at Gretsch Clinic in NYC last night, he is now playing Gretsch drums, the new Brooklyn series, and although he had small rack tom sizes, they sounded huge!

Nothing more I can add about his playing that has not been mentioned, terrific, but I was amazed how much power he could get out his left hand in a trad grip, he had an interesting way of moving his grip away from the fulcrum to the end of the stick to get more leverage and power, a really good clinic, with some great questions and answers.

Keith and Carlock trade off and GO OFF on half-time feel shuffle. Cool funky laid back bpm around the "Home At Last" Purdie tempo.

Fast forward to :43 to bypass the singing and start the trading off portion of the performance.

I was sitting directly to the left of that camera

Josh Dion, VInny Valentino, and John Benitez .....one of the absolute best bands I have ever had the privilege to play behind

I and about 75 others had the pleasure of attending a drum clinic at Sweetwater in Fort Wayne, Indiana this past Wednesday featuring Keith. Along with displays of his formidable chops, he had some great advice for the many youngsters (under 18) in attendance. In essence, he told them that woodshedding is great and practice a necessity but make it a priority to PLAY with others, particularly those who are better than you and can challenge you to be a better player. However you do it - form a garage band, play in high school band / drumline - just do it and keep learning.

This is wonderful advice from a very talented musician, thanks Keith!

Way back in 2002 I had the pleasure of seeing Keith Carlock plays the drums with a bass player and a guitarist at a tiny hole in the wall in Manhattan ... I have lost too many brain cells over the years to recall the whole evening but I remember one thing vividly ... I couldn't take my eyes off of his left foot ... incredible.

Keith is a tremendous player. I remember watching the modern drummer 2005 dvd and saying "I've never studied this guy closely but he's doing the things I always wanted to to do on the drums. I need to do that." His approach to and mastery of dynamics, feel and overall perfect groove was one of the reasons I started playing again, and obviously he's inspired a lot of other younger drummers.

And darn, he keeps improving..

Carlock is becoming one of my favorites. Very unique approach, great technique, kills the traditional grip and his time feel is impeccable. Of course if you play with Steely Dan, you'd better have it together.
