Hi Jado

I think Gavin´s drop-lock hi-hat is this, and is made by DW.

hope that helps.

Saludos para Venezuela, amigo!

Hi Gus

Now that you´re in India (have a good time...;-) ), may i ask you about your view on Indian drummers/percussionists?.I always found them exciting musicians. Mostly i know those who worked with John McLaughlin: The mighty Zakir Hussain, Trilok Gurtu, or Ranjit Barot who plays on JML last cd 'Floating Point'... Also you worked in Dizrhythmia with Pandit Dinesh...

I had a great time in India and I got to spend a day with my friend Pandit Dinesh who is an amazing percussionist. I've enjoyed listening to Trilok Gurtu many times - an unbelievable approach to playing drums and percussion together. I haven't heard Ranjit Barot yet. Zakir Hussain is of course someone every drummer should hear.

Hi marin

do you play live performances with metronome due to samples and electronic stuff in porcupine tree's music? in your opinion, is it required for a drummer to play with metronome in that kind of situations?


Yes sometimes there are samples and electronic stuff we use live and that requires us to play to a click - but mostly it's so the film that is projected behind us is perfectly in synch with the music we're playing. In that situation - yes it's required to play live to a click.

I've recently become curious what it would be like to work with a 'pulsating metronome' and I'm going to try out one of these...

...I'll let you know what happens.

Hi jez-

Eros Ramazzotti 1995 "Più bella cosa" Live
Which CD or album is this exactly? Could you point me in the right direction?
http://www.discogs.com/Eros-Ramazzot...a/master/88657


yes it's a couple of tracks on a live ep. Looks like you've found it already.

Hi Gus and jado

I use both the Tama Cobra Clutch (when I need tightly closed hi hat) and the DW drop clutch for semi-loose hi hat - so I can of course put my left foot on the double pedal.

cheers
Gavin

Hi Gavin,
Interesting device! Im curious to hear your findings. What do you think is the main advantage of feeling the vibration of this device instead of a click track in the ear?

Cheers,
Santi

Hi there Gavin,
Nice to know that you had a good time in India; I missed the show because I had a gig myself, really wanted to catch PT.
Maybe next time :)

Regards,

Arka

I can definitely see how it would be easier on your hearing. I play in a few bands that use backing tracks and originally I thought I was protecting my hearing by using isolation monitors but now I wonder if I am doing more damage by blasting thousands of digital beeps directly onto my eardrums every night.

I'll definitely need to look into this device as well...

I believe it all comes down to how loud you have your in-ears. Is projecting moderately loud click+monitoring directly to your eardrums worse than blasting very loud monitoring over very loud noise already on the stage from cabinets beside you?

That looks great. Seems to have even more features than the Yamaha Clickstation, not to mention the Wireless stuff let's you easily set up a click for everybody in your band for rehearsing, or even live situations. I honestly prefer hearing the metronome, I even couldn't play as well when I tried the metronome on my right ear instead of my left one, but I've never actually played to a pulsating one, so I might be wrong, I'll be waiting for your review.
By the way, these look great and all, but they seem WAY expensive, specially if you have to get several for the whole band. Do you by chance have an estimate of how much they are going to cost?
Happy Holidays, and thanks.


Fox.

Hi Gavin,

first of all:Merry Christmas to you and your family.I just checked out the fill you told me.It´s feels awesome:)
I got a serious question:
if you have a girlfriend or wife(i don´t know if you do),how is it possible to keep up relationships for you as a musician?With all that travelling and let´s say "unsteady" lifestyle,what is your approach?

I think you've answered the question with your question. I'm sure most of us would rather not have a barking loud click in our ears.

Hi Fox622003

I couldn't find any info about the price.

Hi DTrocks

no not yet but I'm guessing around April.

Hi joepeng

if you have a girlfriend or wife(i don´t know if you do),how is it possible to keep up relationships for you as a musician?With all that travelling and let´s say "unsteady" lifestyle,what is your approach?


my partner is very understanding and she was in a similar business to the music industry.

Hi Gavin, I have a question about snare tuning.

I've looked on askgavinharrison.com and searched this thread but can't find what I'm looking for;

How do you tune the reso head compared to the batter on a;

12" snare?

13" snare?

and 14" snare?

Thanks a lot, Phil :)

Gavin,

Quick question about "Break". That light shuffling I hear between the snare and hi-hat -- especially in the intro (before vocals), are those 8th note double strokes or some kind of paradiddle? It's very light and quick but also very difficult to tell exactly what you're playing.

I've read in another thread on here that the verse of Unsettled is 7/16 + 5/16, wouldn't that be the same as 12/16th's? Or is it a bar of 7/16 followed by a bar of 5/16's?

Thanks and take care

Eric

Hi Gavin!

Regarding the next PT dvd, is there a possibility of a blu-ray version? I always thought it would be the next logical step for the band, since you've been in touch with the lastest technologies for audio and video in your records and tours.

Have a great 2010 full of blessings, health and success for PT and all your future projects!
Oh, also: Come to South America in 2010!

See ya!
Heitor.

I don't have a particular interval that I tune any of those drums to - but what I can tell you is that I tune the reso side quite a bit higher than the batter side.

Hi euphoric_anomaly

I think maybe you're hearing the 32nds - basically they are inverted doubles - but it's all explained in high detail on the forthcoming "Rhythmic Designs" book/dvd.

I've read in another thread on here that the verse of Unsettled is 7/16 + 5/16, wouldn't that be the same as 12/16th's? Or is it a bar of 7/16 followed by a bar of 5/16's?

Yes it could be thought of as 12/16 or 3/4 or 6/8 but the intention is 7/16 followed by a bar of 5/16. All time signatures could be written in a number of ways - but they are there to help you get a grip on the way it's meant to be perceived. Of course the audience can't hear the bar lines - but the right bar lines in the right place can make something a lot easier to understand/read and play.

Hi Heitor

Regarding the next PT dvd, is there a possibility of a blu-ray version?

yes there is a good possibility this time. We're working on it.

cheers
Gavin

Sorry for the delay. This article was printed a day after you left :).
Tonnes of typos and misinformation.

Hi Santibanks

Do you have your click set very loud?


Loud enough that it's not that musical. I think I remember that you're not a drummer right?. The problem is that when playing rock drums - they produce so much volume in themselves - that you need the click relatively loud to hear it over all that drum volume. I'm sure no other band member would listen to it anywhere near as loud as the drummer would.

Hi drumbumhamza,
thanks for posting the article. Yes there are some funny mistakes in there. First we didn't make a 7 hour soundcheck - it was closer to 40 minutes - which is unusually long for us.
We didn't play the songs "Deadwing" or "Fear Of A Blank Planet" - but we did have a moment in the show where all the power went off for about 15 seconds in the middle of one of the songs. I think the "Bread" thing should have said "Break" - as that is when we go off stage for a couple of minutes.

Hi shortsman

As far as i know you and 05ric are preparing the new album right? When do you believe it will be available for us?

We've just starting thinking about writing our first new song together. It will be a long time before we're ready to record and release a new record...so please don't hold your breath!

Happy new year everyone.

Cheers
Gavin

That sounds pretty horrible to me. I;m on clicktrack but never need to have it loud as a keyboardplayer (its just for checking if it actually works).

Curious how the vibrating device would work. Please keep us updated here if you (or in general, anyone here) tried it.

Then I think it would be a good idea. I haven't spent anytime practising on electronic drums - but when I've played them in a live situation it was remarkable how different they were in sound and feel to the acoustic set. But its better to practise on them than not to practise at all.

Hi Hurlza

on you ned dvd designs, are you using the cymbal felts that you were designing a while ago? cheers Hurlza

yes i am using them - and I'm still working on the R&D and experimenting with different formulas. when they are ready I'll make an announcement.

I’m sure you would find a unique and great way to do progressive edrumming if you tried and I don’t recall seeing any edrummer who played in a way comparable to yours. It would be great to watch!
I play both acoustic and electronic and I like the possibilities that modern edrums offer, although they of course cannot replace real drums.

Hey Gavin!

I'm sorry if you get asked this question a lot, but I was curious, and no one recently has asked you this, that I can see. But what has been the hardest song you have played with Porcupine Tree? And what is the hardest song you've played in general? Thanks a lot! Have a great new year!

Hi drummer girl09

what has been the hardest song you have played with Porcupine Tree? And what is the hardest song you've played in general?

Do you mean physically or the most difficult? Physically speaking "Anesthetize" is very exhausting to play as is "Deadwing" and "Creator Had A Master Tape". The most difficult would perhaps be the end section of "What Happens Now" but after the first few nights it felt easy - it just took a bit of nerve to pull off something so poly-rhythmically complex. Probably the the most difficult songs I've tried to play live is "Level 5" and "The Construction Of Light" with King Crimson.

Cheers
Gavin

Hey Gavin you are one of my favorite drummers and influences. You and Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater are my favorite drummers. What do you think of Mike's drumming? and what was it working with Kevin Moore and O.S.I? I enjoyed "Blood"and your drumming deffanitly fits. Cheers.

Hey huXler, is this the one?



It should be something like that, although the toms are probably hit in a different order, and maybe there's some bass drum in there, hope this helps Gavin clarify it for you!

Hi Gavin!

Hi AAP,

Hey there Gavin,

Quik question.
At the Modern Drummer Festival 2008 you talking with Simon Phillips right? (interview ect)
I was wondering, did you hear his set up close without mices?
If so, how did it sound? If not, what do you think about his drum-sound in general?
And the combo of clear ambassadors top and bottom on toms and bass drum?

Thank you for the time you take to look and reply the questions I ask you.
Really, wonderfull to see a pro do this. Posting so frequently and patiently.

Not only a great drummer, but a great person too;)


Thanks!

Hi protestthedrummer

What do you think of Mike's drumming? and what was it working with Kevin Moore and O.S.I? I enjoyed "Blood"and your drumming deffanitly fits.

Mike's great and I've met him a few times now. OSI was great fun to play - I didn't meet Kevin or Jim as I did the whole project at home on my own. It was very much an 'internet relationship' - but I think it came out very well.

HI huXler

I wanted to ask you something about "The Blind House". Could you explain the fill you're doing at about 3:30 in the second Chorus?


I think Fox622003 almost has it right except the last little triplet run I think is
tom, kick, tom flam, kick, tom, kick, snare.

I used to have custom made ones - but it's been easier to make them in Sonor parts. I had to customize one little thing though. The basic arm which is the cymbal holder needed to be threaded right the way down to the bottom of the shaft on cymbal positions 1,3 & 5. This is so I could get the height differences and have the cymbals overlapping and very close together.

Then I just cut off the excess thread that is standing up above the cymbal. You can see that here before I did the cutting.

when I break it down I just take off the cymbals and slide the bar out that's holding the 5 cymbal arms - then put it in a case like that.

I did tap his drums backstage to see how they sounded. The heads were on tighter than I expected but they sounded great. It really is part of Simon's sound and I know he's used that head combination for the last 30 years.

cheers
Gavin

Gavin,

could you make some photos of your home-studio? It would be great as I would know how you organized your room.
Also i'd like to see what absorber-stuff you used and how you setted them up!


Thanks
David
