    Who here has skipped/forgone learning doubles on the kick drum?

    So to answer my own question - while what I wrote was correct back when I was taught, it would appear that we've long since clarified some of these names. Which actual makes sense - as when I was taught, the ruff was LLR - while the 4 stroke ruff was LRLR And there was the Single Drag - a...

    Iconic Drum Intro's

    How odd - this is the second time today that I've typed the words - "Little Miss Lover"

    Who here has skipped/forgone learning doubles on the kick drum?

    Are you referring to the names? Because I think they would normally be called 1. Ruff and 2. 3 stroke roll - correct?

    Who here has skipped/forgone learning doubles on the kick drum?

    Actually I think Drumeo has a pretty helpful video about this with Larnell Lewis. I mean Larnell is a mutant with all of this - but don't be put off by the flashy mega-facility intro. Because after that comes a very down to earth, meat and potatoes demonstration of the two basic techniques he...

    Who here has skipped/forgone learning doubles on the kick drum?

    I think we might collectively be veering into quite a few definitions as to what should be called a double on the bass drum. Let's talk something everyone probably knows - Zepplin's "Immigrant Song". For example, there are two 1/16th's on the bass drum leading into beat 2, right? I would call...

    Chart or no chart

    I personally love having a chart - nothing pulls me out of the zone more than worrying that I might not have memorized it right. I think I've just read so much for so long - that it doesn't pull me out of "the zone" to look at it as I need. The only time it's really an issue though just...

    OT - serious as a heart attack

    Just think about how many wait... and die... not willing (or able) to cough up that deductible "just to be sure". I have to say - there's few things to cheer about regarding getting old... but Medicare is certainly one.

    The "graveyard" subforums

    And yet members have expressed exactly.... And the topic isn't about having "sub-categories or not", it is about two uniquely different subcategories - that aren't defined the nature of their content, but the origin of that content. While it seems obvious from multiple posts that you personally...

    TV Theme Songs

    If you are referring to the TV show - I can pretty positively say that no, Billy did no playing on it. The TV show ran from 1965-1969 and was recorded in LA - Billy spent the 1st three of those years in the Army band and much of '69 on the road with Horace Silver. Plus unusually, the Wild West...

    TV Theme Songs

    Yes, but always remember Hal Blaine was more of record guy (usually thought to be the higher level status industry-wise) than a TV guy - though he did do all sorts of work. For instance, the Batman theme - he's widely been credited with playing on that and I've never really seen it disputed...

    We've Never Tackled The Greatest Drumming Movies of All Time?

    Of course, it's over the top. But really not as much as so folks suggest. I had a concert band director that was in that league - dictatorial, abusive, belittling, unreasonable... the man was hugely talented, but he a tyrannical A**. And my degree advisor as well. So like all movies do -...

    Thunderbolt 3 Audio Interface?

    And what the Thunderbolt 3 is supposed to buy the user of the 2626 is extremely low latency - in the roundtrip in about 1 msec range. That plus the fact that the 1824c has only one set of ADAT digital I/O's, where the 2626 has two and the 1824 only has word clock out. The 2626 is definitely a...

    TV Theme Songs

    We had a big thread on all of this a few years ago - and there was a great YouTube channel that had tons of great info on it - it is long gone sad to say - so here's a cut and paste of a post I made back then... (It actually lists Rick Marrota as drums on Starsky with Gadd on perc - which I...

    TV Theme Songs

    Probably not - why? (And this just a whole lot of fitting the pieces together - meaning guessing on my part...) :cool: OK - I believe Starsky and Hutch had 3 or 4 different themes - year one was by Mark Snow (very action cop show vibe) - year two was a whole shift in tome to this happy funk...

    Opinions on this Preloaded Mac

    Rmgreg - OK - long time Mac user here - and while as fallen above says, macs do hold their value and usefulness for a very long time. But at the latest, this is a 2010 model... like quite functional, but as far as interfacing with the rest of the world... pretty much at "end of life". The last...
