    Moeller technique videos

    There are a lot of YouTube videos on the Moeller Technique but I'm wondering if anyone has watched/worked through any they've found particularly insightful. Yeah a teacher would be best, but not during these times. Thought I might see if I can make any progress on my own. Thanks!

    Just saw this. Not a bad price ($19.95) considering what it contains. Could be an interesting series.

    OT: Bourbon drinkers? Favorite Bourbon...

    So I've very slowly dipped my toe in the bourbon world, and by slowly I mean Elijah Craig is the first I've bought (on a recommendation). I've really enjoyed it with just one small ice cube and I'm wondering if there are other bourbon drinkers out there that can share recommendations. Right...

    Peart MD issue

    With most places closed, does anyone know where I could get a copy of the latest Modern Drummer magazine tribute to Peart? On their site you need a subscription. Perhaps someone here has a music store i could buy from?

    Vic Firth wood shaft beater

    Giving this unique Vic beater a run. So far I really like it. A consistently solid stoke that seems to be giving me a more full sound. A nice balance too that is making quiet kicks easier to control. I watched a VF video on this where they talked about the balance, comparing the usual beater to...

Together for the fun and the challenge of creating music similar to the progressive rock music we are fans of (Stick Men, King Crimson etc)...

    Jojo Mayer - "Changing Time" documentary

    I know that Jojo's band "Nerve" isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I have to say that I love watching the videos of them playing live. Jojo is definitely following a unique, creative approach, and watching him reverse engineer drum machine rhythms on an acoustic kit is crazy! I like how he...

    My new (to me) C&C's out at a gig (a few pics)

    Took my C&C's (courtesy of DanRH) out on a gig yesterday afternoon. Fantastic look and sound! The floor toms especially were thunderous with deep tone. Very happy with my purchase. These are certainly my main home practice and gig kit. A few pics:

    Speaking of Steve Smith

    I just grabbed his Vital Information "One Great Night Live" CD/DVD combo on Amazon for $14! An hour of live footage, and his drums are turned sideways facing the band, so much of the footage is shot looking at him playing. Outstanding, and what a bargain! Highly recommended!!

    OT: My greyhound's 15 minutes of fame!

    Okay, so someone from the pet section of the Huffington Post came across a picture of our tripod greyhound Dexter via one of the dog groups we support on Facebook and they ran a story on him!

    OT - Bands feeling exploited by venues should read this

    This musician makes a lot of good points. Bands do need to make some effort at promotion of course, but I agree with a lot of what's said here.:

    Ludwig Rockers

    Hey, I have a friend in Atlanta looking at this kit: The guy told him he paid close to 8 grand initially, which I think is a load of garbage. These are Ludwig Rockers, which if I'm not mistaken are more of a beginner line right? He was also...
