It is faily long , but this type of request pops up all the time...at least every 2nd page.

Gavin, maybe you could get Bernard to change the thread title to "Gavin Harrison here. No drumless track requests please"? ;)
Especially after Gavin ALREADY told him he couldn't do it once...

What I mentioend above doesn't have to do with "muscle memory" (whatever that is...), but to have the concepts clearly in your mind, and being able to pull them off against either your own pulse, or that of a metronome.

Dude, I know you mean well but this is the 'Gavin Harrison here!' thread, not 'Fox622003 here!' thread. Maybe you can start one of those? Unless the answer has already been given of course and you're trying to save GH the trouble, why does anyone bother? I don't think Volentry is particularly interested in how you or I or others do it, he still wants Gavin's explanation, he's the pro here.

Haha I get what you mean but no that doesn't necessarily mean I don't value the advice of more experienced drummers such as Fox's. It was really helpful, I really understand what you meant by that post and it really helped in a way.

But yeah I still want to have Gavin's reply to my question. Thanks anyway, Fox!

Hi GAViN !!!

1. I did ask you about the 20" and 22" K Ride few days ago. Another question on your personal opinion on the topic. Regarding the size and the sound which is different between both these sizes, do you find one of them more versatile than the other one? Why?

2. Did you record drums for the third Blackfield album?

Thanks very much, the fact that you find time to reply to your fans' questions is very much appreciated. Good luck.

Hi Gavin,

I'll soon buy microphones for my drumkit and I have two questions for you:

1. If you had to choose between those 3 kick mics: Audix d6 / AKG d112 / Shure Beta52.
Which would you choose? Why?

2. Do you know a good pair of overheads for 500$?

Thanks for you sharing your time and passion with us!

Will

Hey Gavin,

Apologies if this question / comment has been posted before but do you ever plan on doing some instructional vids on tuning? I know a lot of people love the sound you get and to be honest we're not all fans of the Gatzen vids. :)

Cheers,

Jesse

PS - Are there any vids of you with King Crimson available online or for purchase?

Isn't there a short section on tuning on the Rhythmic Designs DVD? Gavin's sound has been widely discussed in this thread, also, so you should search around, or even take a look at the FAQ.

AFAIK there are no videos available. You however can buy a show with Gavin on drums at the DMG live website (which is Park West, Chicago - 7th of August 2008).

Hey Gavin,

Around 6:45 in Anesthetize, you do a really cool six- tuplet rhythm on the snare before going into the "open-close" hi-hate groove. I have a few ideas on what the sticking is but I'm not sure which one you're using. Can you elaborate?

Hi Volentry

I have a question regarding what do you think of while playing. I read from askgavinharrison.com that you sometimes grunt subdivisions while playing, especially in fills. What I do when I play is I tend to just play from muscle memory, which led me to make mistakes such as tempo fluctuations and off time fills. But now, I keep the pulse in my head, which improved my time and fills.

I'm trying to just think about the music and not get too distracted. I'm trying to make the timing as consistent as I can - and come up with 'interesting' fills. Not necessarily complicated ones.

I realise many professional and top drummers, including you, have the ability to add/subtract/change drum parts throughout the song with ease. Like in this video at 1:58, instead of playing a straight groove, you play a crash on the a of 1 and crash + snare on 2 to give that extra kick. I thought that was just fantastic.
Were parts like those thought out first or played 'on the spot'? Because I would love to play like that.


Without trying to sound patronising - it just took me years and years to get to the point where I could start to get really comfortable and play with some freedom. I would say it's still a work in progress. The small fill that you mentioned just came to me one night - and I liked it - so I kept doing it. Shame I didn't think of it when we recorded the album.

Hi scottishhaggis

1. I did ask you about the 20" and 22" K Ride few days ago. Another question on your personal opinion on the topic. Regarding the size and the sound which is different between both these sizes, do you find one of them more versatile than the other one? Why?

I only have the 20" K Ride - and it's extremely versatile. I've never owned a 22" K Ride. I have other 22"s.

2. Did you record drums for the third Blackfield album?


Nope.

Hi willregnier

1. If you had to choose between those 3 kick mics: Audix d6 / AKG d112 / Shure Beta52. Which would you choose? Why?

I'd go for the Audix D6. I really haven't had much luck with an AKG D112. The Beta 52 sounds nice but I've never owned one.

2. Do you know a good pair of overheads for 500$?

sorry - can't help you there.

Hi ElevenFour

Hi henri

Do you think that Z oriental cymbals are especially fragile?

they're not really designed for heavy rock drumming. They sound great - and yes I have broken a few in my time.

Hi pixelbreaker

actually it's two 16ths followed by 3 triplet 16ths with this sticking R L R R L (it turns out to be my favorite sticking of all time). If there's any fill of mine you can't work out - it's probably got that sticking in it somewhere!!!

cheers
Gavin

Hey Gav, hope your creativity's going well recording the next O5Ric album.

Just one question please. In 'False Start' of OSI, exactly at 2:12 - 2:20, was that bass part created (invented) after you came up with the displacement or before. This part is very simple on drums (technically), but it sounds so awesome, it seems that in that part no other drum pattern could ever ever take place. For me it's the best displacement I've ever heard you played anywhere. Thanks for that :)

Gavin, do you like your own groove - can you enjoy your own playing (on recordings) as
much as that of your favourite drummers, or is it kind of impossible to achieve the same
listening "distance" one has when listening to a drummer other than oneself?

Hi Gavin!!

I have some questions:

Some drummers as Horacio Hernandes, Akira Jimbo and Terry Bozzio have been using pedals to control cowbells, clave and other percussive intruments in recent years. Some drummers are pushing the bar to another level like you in terms of how the drummer acts in a musical situation. I want to know what do you think about the future of the drummer?

What is the most crazy device (cymbal,drum, percussion) you've used in a record?

What are the advantages of thinner drum shells in comparison to thicker shells?

Have fun recording your tracks, the best wishes for this new year from your fan from Ecuador.

Thanks - but technically speaking it isn't a displacement - it's a modulation. The guitar parts were already there - I came up with that part because I thought it would sound good to mess with the time a little bit at that point. After a few bars it rights itself back to straight 4/4 of course.

Hi Swiss Matthias

Gavin, do you like your own groove - can you enjoy your own playing (on recordings) as much as that of your favourite drummers, or is it kind of impossible to achieve the same listening "distance" one has when listening to a drummer other than oneself?

I can't really listen to myself play in the way I can when I listen to other drummers. It's very difficult to be objective about your own work.

Hi Crimson Redrum

Some drummers as Horacio Hernandes, Akira Jimbo and Terry Bozzio have been using pedals to control cowbells, clave and other percussive intruments in recent years. Some drummers are pushing the bar to another level like you in terms of how the drummer acts in a musical situation. I want to know what do you think about the future of the drummer?


I don't think the future of drumming needs to wait for the equipment to be invented. I believe musicality will never get boring. I don't know what drummers will be playing 10 years from now - I just hope it doesn't turn into an Olympic event.

What is the most crazy device (cymbal,drum, percussion) you've used in a record?

I played a bicycle once on a recording - sounded really good played with brushes.

What are the advantages of thinner drum shells in comparison to thicker shells?

they aren't so heavy.

cheers
Gavin

Thank You for your answers Mr. Harrison, it seems that a lot of musicians use bycicles in general music, Pink Floyd's "Bike", Queen's "Bycicle", Frank Zappa using a bow in a bycicle, you playing it with brushes, maybe in 10 years some crazy mind will do a concerto for bycicle, It will be funny...

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to defend your drumming? I mean, sometimes you play what you feel it's right for the song, but the compositor thinks you should something completely different that doesn't fit in the musical context that you're working. How do you react in those kind of situations?

Hey Gavin!

Just watched the Anesthetize dvd for the 2355235th time again last night, and I just wanted to say how tasteful your performance was, in case everyone else hasn't already!

In addition, lately I've been reading your book Rhythmic Designs and playing along to some tracks of yours and 05Ric's.. Some really cool stuff, its.. involved to say the least ;-). Its given me inspiration to create a bunch of new grooves I can show to my band!

Now, I realize I probably won't get special attention here, I don't expect it, but if you want to.. heres a cover of Unsettled I did about a week ago. You'll notice some very small edits because my recorder was having latency issues, but I feel like its a good performance aside from that!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxhKa4_aAgk



And one question if you'd be so kind... hopefully it hasn't been asked here yet.

Since Porcupine Tree isn't planned to be doing much this year, are there any projects you have planned in the near future?


Thanks so much!

Steven

I'm sure it will be fantastic, as the last one was.

Looking forward to it.

Hello mr. Harrison,
you mentioned you own the Sonor 14x6 artist cottonwood snare drum. I want to buy a new snare out of the artist series and this one is my favourite so far. I don't really have anywhere to try any of the artist snares here in cze and on youtube there are only few examples, so I wanted to ask you, on which recordings or videos you used this drum. Also If you could please tell me your opinion on this snare.
Thank you very much.

Hey Gavin, hey Folks,


last weekend I spent a bit time to transcribe "Bonnie the Cat".

I attached a PDF but I think there are two fills in the end that are not correct, so maybe you could help me!

Hi Crimson Redrum

Have you ever been in a situation where you had to defend your drumming? I mean, sometimes you play what you feel it's right for the song, but the compositor thinks you should something completely different that doesn't fit in the musical context that you're working. How do you react in those kind of situations?

Occasionally I've tried to convince producers/artists that a certain rhythm would suit their song. BUT at the end of the day it is their song and they're paying for the session. Sometimes they have even said to me (after the record has already been released) that they wish they had tried my suggestion.

Hi Dont Taze Me Bro

Since Porcupine Tree isn't planned to be doing much this year, are there any projects you have planned in the near future?


I have a load of drum clinics planned this spring and summer. When I have confirmation of the dates I'll post them on this thread.

Hi mly

you mentioned you own the Sonor 14x6 artist cottonwood snare drum. I want to buy a new snare out of the artist series and this one is my favourite so far. I don't really have anywhere to try any of the artist snares here in cze and on youtube there are only few examples, so I wanted to ask you, on which recordings or videos you used this drum. Also If you could please tell me your opinion on this snare.

It is - like all the other Sonor Artists snares - and excellent drum. I've used it a few times but I think the only video is this one: http://www.drummerworld.com/Videos/g...sonfutile.html

I don't tend to use snare drums that deep that often - but I always enjoy playing it.

Hi Kalma

nice job !!!

Ok, well haven't seen the Designs DVD yet. The Search didn't turn up anything and looking through the thousands of threads in this post didn't seem logical at the time. Oh, and is your name Gavin?

Perhaps next time post a link to the post / posts you are referring to instead of trying to imply that I haven't complied with some sort of message board etiquette. Don't they call people like you Trolls or something stupid like that?

Perhaps next time post a link to the post / posts you are referring to instead of trying to imply that I haven't complied with some sort of message board etiquette. Don't they call people like you Trolls or something stupid like that?
So, despite I gave you the exactly same answer Gavin did (the DVD) but earlier *and* suggested that you search the FAQ on his signature for further information, without being hostile in any manner is a bad thing?
I'm SO sorry.

Gavin,

I was wondering what you/Porcupine Tree use for In Ear Moniters, Transmitter and recivers for live situations. My band and I have tried a few products and they have all been terrible quality and we are sick of wasting our money. Thanks!

Been viewing this thread for a long time...and I have to give you props to answering all these posts/questions. Having said that...I have a question of my own!

When you played Delites, they were vintage shells. From what I see, your SQ2's are Thin toms, Medium floors, and Heavy kick. Why the switch from vintage? Was there something you didn't like about the Delite vintage shell? Are these (thin/med/heavy) shell thicknesses better for recording? Live? How about tuning (ease and pitch) and volume?

Thanks!

I speak from experience -- SCL5's are great. I bought them (wired) from eBay for $260 new. Key is getting a good seal. I was fortunate to do this with the stock bud ends...but you may have to go custom mold.

Hi Pass.of.E.r.a.

I was wondering what you/Porcupine Tree use for In Ear Moniters, Transmitter and recivers for live situations. My band and I have tried a few products and they have all been terrible quality and we are sick of wasting our money. Thanks!

Myself, Colin and Steve have the Sensaphonics 3D ambient In Ears. Wes also has a pair but without the ambient control. Steve still prefers not have to wear any kind of headphones on stage.
They are hands down the best In Ears I've ever had - by a mile. They are made with custom moulds and feature soft silicone instead of hard plastic - and that makes a lot of difference as they don't lose their seal when you move your head or open your mouth - plus they are really comfortable to wear over several hours.

The wireless system is Sennheiser G2 - but that's only for the guitarists - myself and Richard go hard wired as we're basically stuck in the same spot all night.

Hi formula428

When you played Delites, they were vintage shells. From what I see, your SQ2's are Thin toms, Medium floors, and Heavy kick. Why the switch from vintage? Was there something you didn't like about the Delite vintage shell? Are these (thin/med/heavy) shell thicknesses better for recording? Live? How about tuning (ease and pitch) and volume?

The DeLights sound great - but I started to prefer more the Designer kind of shell - which I believe is in the thin/medium zone. They are all easy to tune.

Cheers
Gavin

Hey Gavin, do you know why they haven't released any footage of your duet with Simon?
I've seen a lot of footage from the 2010 Drum Off on the official Guitar Center Channel (Steve Smith, JoJo Mayer, the finalist, Lombardo). Perhaps they're still working on it?

Thanks for the reply Gavin!

Are a lot of the clinics going to be in the Western U.S.? Thats the only way I would get to see one.

I'm curious about Fox's question as well!

Hey Gavin,

Curious to know what ride did you use in "Time Flies"?

Appreciate it
Phillip
