    G'day!
    I say that accuracy plays a large role purely from experience, as that is the only thing i assessed with my playing when i was having break problems (i didnt assess my hard hitting, although...

    Re: Tip for drumstick tips

    It has everything to do with technique. And as i said, i am talking about accuracy, so im not saying there is something wrong with the way the stick is being held for instance. Sticks are designed to...

    Re: Tip for drumstick tips

    If anyone is having trouble with their tips breaking, the problem can more than likely be linked back to your accuracy. If you hit the actual drums and dont hit the rims/ wherever the sticks shouldnt...

    Re: Great drummers on Great albums.

    I can't believe noone has mentioned Danny Carey's playing in any Tool album.

    Re: Snare/Bass Sounds

    What are the dimensions of your snare and bass and what are they made of?

    Remember that regardless of what head you use, some drums aren't built to make some sounds.

    Re: Im in a pickle.

    Dont narrow it down before looking, look before narrowing it down! You dont want to jump the gun and miss out on a kit you might prefer. Even though you are keen on Maple/Ash, you should check out...

    Re: Make my snare shut up?

    On your resonant head for the snare, loosen the 2 lugs either side of the snare wire (on both ends of the wire) provided it isnt too loose already. Dont worry about compensating for that loosening by...
  9. Re: when should one start learning polyrhythms?

    Its just another aspect of drumming (and music). If you wanna be the best you can be at drums then you'll have to tackle it sooner or later - may as well give it a go!

    Good luck!

    Re: need some advice and help from you guys

    Hey there,

    As well as following all this advice of building up with books etc. Try think back to when you did have lessons and what you were taught in the opening stages of drumming. I know it was...

    Re: Not Your Average Newbie

    Hey,

    Re: quick cymbal question

    I couldnt help but notice how you were keen on a 'crashable' ride.

    Just make sure you dont ride the ride as you would the crash. Ride cymbals aren't designed for a regular crashing and so it...

    Re: New to drumming, seeking some guidance

    Hey there, LDS

    To answer your most recent question, definitely go for the Roland. Roland's rhythm coaches feel better and more 'natural' than Alesis ones do, and they have more capabilities...

    Re: a few questions

    Hey there,

    Pastor Bob has answered perfectly. To help you with Q1 (DBP), playing double kick is not just about how fast or how long you can play single strokes for. The best method IMO is to learn...

    Re: Need some advice

    Hey mate,

    Wow, that doesn't sound good at all. Medical advice would be a good idea, but some things to look out for are whether you are holding the stick too tight. Try warming up your hands...
