    Rolls/Great Hands for a Lifetime/Double-Stroke Specifically...

    Question for anyone, specifically those who might have messed around with Igoe's Great Hands DVD/Exercise: I am wondering about double-stroke or long rolls. I have what I use as my "technique" that I'm wondering (and hoping to God) I have not been doing incorrectly for all this time where I...

    Anyone have any idea how much this snare might be worth?

    It's a 3.5x14 Pearl Hand-Hammered Red Brass Free Floating Piccolo Snare w/MasterCast Hoops. I'm moving and thinking of selling it, but I have been reading around a little bit and seen some sites that are calling it "rare" now, so I wondered if I should hold onto it some more or get rid of it...

    Giving Drum Lessons - Hep!

    Ok, so... I just found out that my current job may be ending earlier than I'd planned (I'm kinda like a temp-to-hire, except I might not get hired, they call them PRNs here... "as needed" people...) Anyway, I want to try to start making some money doing more musically related things, instead...

    Writing Original Drum Parts

    Another quick question for some of you guys who have been writing drum parts for a long time: How do approach writing a part for a song that has never had drums put to it before? I'm about to start playing with a really bluesy/folky singer-songwriter kinda guy, and I'm kind of at a loss at...

    Looking for some suggestions about practicing and developing a routine?

    Hey there guys, I'm sure this has been discussed many times here, but I would like to know what some of you guys do to: 1. Keep yourselves focused on what you're practicing (most importantly). I find that CONSTANTLY I'll sit down with, say, The Art of Bop Drumming book and begin to do some...

I was busy scrambling around in my head trying to prepare myself for what was coming, and I had no idea what...

    Your Drums: How did you buy them?

    Hey guys, I have a question for some of you drummers out there with high-end "pro" drum sets. How did you get them? What are the methods you guys went through in order to get your "dream kit"? I'm in the market for a new drum set, but being 27 and never having had credit (I think there are...
