Could you elaborate on that? I understand that you're using a click when you're recording so what else is there? Are you pulling every note onto the "grid" of time, and if so, where does that leave any feel from you? Thanks!

Hi jim arnold

QUESTION. LEADING WITH RIGHT FOOT W/ DOUBLE BASS PEDALS IN 16 THS.PUTS LEFT FOOT ON E & AHS, BUT MY RIGHT FOOT IS STRONGER IF ITS ON E,S & AH,S BECAUSE I AM USED TO PLAYING 1/8 NOTES ON MY H/H, 1 + 2 + YOU KNOW ,BIT OF A PROBLEM, WITCH IS BETTER OR WITCH SHOULD I PRACTICE MORE ??????? ANYONE HAVE A GOOD IDEA OR FIX.

It might be better if you didn't write everything in capital letters. It comes across like you are SHOUTING AT US. Regarding your question: If you just want to start on the beat and play 16ths then yes your method will be fine. I always start with my right foot even if the pattern begins on an 'E' or 'A' - in which case I would be pedaling as you describe - and sometimes I play a triplet or herta in the middle of a pattern that means I would be pedaling the other way - right foot on the beat. I think it would be best to not limit yourself to always getting the left foot on the beat - but rather get equally comfortable playing both ways. What would happen if you wanted to play 16ths on the bass drum during an odd time signature like 15/16 or 11/16 for instance? Also what about triplets and patterns that were 16ths mixed with triplets?

good luck
Gavin

Very cool Gavin,
I have a question if I may, you are obviously familiar with Sonor stuff, I am hitting the studio soon, with as S Classix Birch kit should I stick with the coated Emperor heads over clear Ambass or go with clear Emperors for the batter. Usually I'm using a maple with coated just wasn't sure about the birch and the best sound. Wish I could come see a clinic however can't.
Congrats on all your success.
Cheers

Hey Gavin, how often do you have to replace your 13" K Hihats? They look like they cop a heckuva beating and the top hat is relatively thin...

I haven't played a birch S Classix so I can't really advise you. I do prefer the sound of the Remo coated heads though.

there are more clinics to be announced - more coming soon.

I don't know how often - but I have gone through a few in the past. I just love the sound of them so much.

Hey Gavin,

so glad to hear that you did the drums for the new OSI album. I absolutely loved 'Blood'.

And by the way, are there any news about your collaboration with 05Ric? I remember you saying in an interview, that you two would be working on a new album 2011. Sure hope so!

Cheers,
huXler

Hi There Gavin,

I am trying to decide on IEM's and I remember you really liking the Sensaphonic's. However, in a recent post you mentioned you were using the UE10's.

Are you still using the Sensaphonic 3D IEM'S or did you switch back to the UE10's or Sennheiser's; if so why?
I really would appreciate your input, as this is a big purchase for me and I value your opinion over any other.

Thanks So Much for keeping up with all of us. It is very kind of you to take time out of your busy schedule to answer all the questions that are posted.

Many Many Thanks for your thoughts, playing and inspiration!

Hey, Gavin. I've watched "Cheating the Polygraph" from the Anesthetize DVD a few times recently and saw that you're playing a second snare, placed to the left of the hi-hat, on the verses and on other parts of the song. What does that snare do for you? Is the positioning advantageous, or is it something about the sound?

Also, on that 5/8 part at the end, when you're playing the triplets, it sounds like you're playing on rims - it has a very slappy sound. Are you?

Can't wait for new PT and for whatever you have brewing at the moment...

- Tracey

Hi!
I think I can remember at the Sonor Days he told, that the ghostings wouldn't come through very good in a large hall..

All the best

we're very nearly finished recording the new album - should be mixing very soon. Exciting stuff.

Hi ZGR8DCVER

Are you still using the Sensaphonic 3D IEM'S or did you switch back to the UE10's or Sennheiser's; if so why?

Yes I'm still using the Sensaphonic 3D's - I had to send them back for a small repair and so I had to start using the UE10s again for a short while. They are a really big purchase but the Sensaphonics are much better and more comfortable to wear.

Hi tmccartney

I've watched "Cheating the Polygraph" from the Anesthetize DVD a few times recently and saw that you're playing a second snare, placed to the left of the hi-hat, on the verses and on other parts of the song. What does that snare do for you? Is the positioning advantageous, or is it something about the sound?


it's a smaller higher pitched drum with a completely different sound that works as a nice contrast to the other snare drum.

Also, on that 5/8 part at the end, when you're playing the triplets, it sounds like you're playing on rims - it has a very slappy sound. Are you?

I used to play it as ghost notes - but you could never hear it over the guitars - so now I play it on the rim.

Hi tobiashula

Do you have certian pre-gig-rituals except tapping on your practice pad?

not really - I just need to spend half an hour without distractions to clear my mind ready for the show.

cheers
Gavin

Hey, Gavin. I've never thought that ill be able to speak you and this is it...

I'd like to ask you one question, but before that ill say that after listening Nil Recurring you became my favourite drummer. When i heard that rhythm from What Happens Now at 5:13 i was little shocked, that something like this exist. Also on Cheating the Polygraph you've made great job.

I have my personal channel on youtube, where im putting my drum covers. Im working on "19 days" now and im sure that ill put it on youtube soon.

Anesthetize is my favourite recorded cover so far

Here is link to my channel. These covers are not perfect though, but i do almost my best to train my skill.
http://www.youtube.com/user/Mentoelify?feature=mhum Ill be glad if you could watch some.

Coming back to my question. I sum up, that your whole game is relative with progressive rock/metal. What drummers and what bands were and still are your inspiration?

Yours,

I just read about the switch to Speed Cobras. First of all, I wish you a long and happy relationship with it! :)
But! I've read a lot of very good reviews and comments about the feel of the pedal, about it being powerful and fast, having a nice feel. And a lot of times I've read about some design problems, meaning it started to clack(click?), proven to be more fragile than others, some cracks appeared on them after a few months, slave beater wobbling, etc. I know, that every foot is different, every technique is different, and there are a lot of impatient guys out there, who don't know too much about finetuning a pedal (or just tightening a simple screw!), but I'm really interested in your opinion. I'm currently using a DW 5000 Accelerator, and I like a bit heavy feel for a pedal. I like the feeling of the footboard pushing my feet a little! I can't really play with a too smooth pedal, in my experience I could not control it correctly. I'm not sure I explained it well enough, I'm still missing some skill in english. :s Anyways, I'm planning to upgrade to a double for some time now, and my eye got caught on a DW 8002B longboard (with the adjustable cam), and I wanted to install Cobra coils on them. I have some experience working with metal, so I know, with a little effort, it can be done!
But your switch to SpeedCobras got me thinking! Can it be tuned to a bit heavier feel at all, and if it can, without loosing much reaction-speed? The price difference is only about 20 bucks, so... I know, the real deal would be to try the Cobra, but messing with the settings in a hungarian store for a long time... well... It's not really doable. :(
Thank you in advance for your opinion!
Best wishes,
Matthew

Hi VIeniu

I listen to all kinds of things. Lately it has been Nine Inch Nails, Gary Husband, Aaron Parks, Meshuggah and loads more.

Sorry but I can't comment on your YouTube stuff - I don't have the time and the flood gates would open if I did.

Hi szokematyi

Pedals are very personal things - like drum sticks. They all 'do the job' but some you find suit you and the kind of music you're playing better than others. I spent 9 happy years playing the Axis pedals and they are indeed very good. I tried the Tama Speed Cobras and I felt that they suited me a bit better for where I am now. There are no short cuts - you still have to practise like mad to get good accurate bass drum notes. All bass drum pedals can be tuned in their own way - for heavy or light feel - but all the pedals have a different intrinsic feel to them. I can't tell you if you'll find what you're looking for - but I can say that the Tamas are extremely well designed and very nicely thought out. They are a different feel - and one that I'm enjoying.

Cheers
Gavin

Hi Gavin!

Thank you for your opinion, all I wanted to know, that you are satisfied in terms of it's quality!
I'm still thinking, because:
DW: adjustability and the feel of the 5000, Cobras: very good reviews and your opinion. The only issue with the Cobra is the unfamiliarity of it. I still have 1 or 2 months to decide, so... we'll see!

Thanks again for your opinion! The rest as they say, is up to me! ;)

Cheers

Hi Gavin!!!

First of all, thanks for taking the time for answer all our questions, that means a lot for us, at least for me :)

I'm saving to buy a double pedal again (third time :)) and before the Speed Cobras showed up I had a my mind on the Iron Cobras, because I already had them in the double variant and they feel amazing, I already have one Iron Cobra single pedal and I love it every time I play.... but the Speed Cobras got me thinking... I cant try them where I live (damn stores!!!). Now, I see that you switch to Tama Speed Cobras, before you did it, I'm sure as hell that you tried a lot of other pedals before you switched....so for you (and I know pedals, as you say it, are very personal things), what is the main difference in feel between the Cobras, Speed and Iron of course.

Thanks a lot for your ideas and feedback!!!

Gabriel

P.D: by the way.... it is amazing stuff that you do here

Hi Gavin !

I'm not a drummer, just guitarist even though I'm very interested by rhythm skills, tricks, fills (not sure of my vocabulary, frenchness doesn't help ...)

Anyway. First of all, I'm a huge fan of your playing and of your sound.
Porcupine Tree is one of my biggest influences too.

This forum is maybe not the right place to ask you that, but it's the only one I found.

I didn't have the luck to see your show at the Royal Albert Hall. I know it wasn't filmed, but I read somewhere (maybe on the PT twitter, not sure) that it was recorded and maybe, someday, it might be probably released ...

So, I'm asking if you guys intend to release a record of this live one day ? I saw the track-list and it would be really great to hear all that old songs with your sound and drumming !


Sorry if it was already asked a hundred times
Cheers
Victor

Gavin, I’m Back with too many questions I’m sure!! Answer at your own discretion;) I don’t want to be a thread hog – Hahaha! I searched Ask-Gavin in Advance;)

1) Do you play note for note live?

2) How long did it take you to write Rhythmic Illusions, Rhythmic Perspectives etc.?

3) I see that you will be teaching @ Dave Weckl’s Drum Fantasy Camp in 2011. Will you also be doing a few clinics while in the States!!! Hint. Hint. Pray. Pray.

Awesome drummer you are!
Many thanks & kind regards, Tess
