    What are the simplest songs you play that you love?

    Fixed....and it's as good an example as any because if it was easy everyone would sound just as good playing it. They don't.

    Virgin kick or not?

    If you have a mount you can always choose to not use it. The other way around is a wee bit more difficult. Even if not optimal for you it will make things easier sometimes

    Cajon information required Cajon choice is hard. If I didn't know I'd check the less expensive Meinl and Pearl models and just see as I tried and researched more.

    Practise room - help!

    You can get away with very little. I have more channels, but for practice I just use BD + OHs most of the time. If you have an iPad you can probably get most of all the things you want to play to from that. I use Spotify(combine Amazing Slowdowner with that), DrumJam and Pro Metronome. Unless...

    Using training pad vs playing electronic drums

    It's going to change a lot over time. Personally, I'm not a fan of any of those surfaces, especially mesh, but opinions differ. If the plan is to play an acoustic kit I'd definetly recommend getting access to that sometimes. A snare doesn't need to be expensive and there's probably a room you...

    "Pad Book"

    I got it today. Basically, it starts off with stickings and basic accent patters + some reading text, but they're written out from triplets to septulets. Chapter 2 is your mixed subdivision stuff and Chapter 3 is hand independnce.

    How far do you sit away from your bass drum?

    Once I let go of the idea that I had to sit at a certain height to be comfy and just raised the throne to where things worked I stopped thinking about it.

    Resources to help improve back beat playing.

    In my previous life as a guitar player this was something I noticed quite a bit. It's so much about the inner dynamics that are just the complete opposite of a traditional jazz context. It's really just about focused practice. No matter what you do around it that snare it has to be consistent...

    Avril Lavigne - Complicated

    Be aware of the song structure and being conscious of where you fill and why. This is a straight pop song, so in general a crash is to mark a new section and a fill is to set up that crash unless it's part of a constant groove in a section. Listen to the original. Memorizing and copy...

    Metronome suggestions

    Pro Metronome app. Has all the bells and whistles if you need them, but is very simple and intuitive to use for basic function.
