What a beautiful looking cymbal! No really! But, on your next demo, maybe you could demonstrate HOW IT SOUNDS!!!
I have this video lesson on VHS. Haven't seen it in a long while, and just found it downloaded to YT. Anyone who has watched Gary Chaffee's videos knows the brilliance of his approach to drumset playing. Anyway, check out the samba lesson beginning at about 29:00 minutes through about 34:00...
Ever notice that some jazz musicians have the coolest names, and that some names just say “jazz musician?” Here are some of my favorites. What have you got?
I don’t know if this article has been posted or discussed. But, it would be cool if DFO builders and/or dealers would comment on the premises in the article.
For your review:
I had the privilege of seeing the Tal Cohen Trio on Saturday night. Wow! They blew the roof off! I had only recently heard of drummer, David Chiverton, but, never seen him. What a talent! And the mid-song communication between him and pianist, Tal Cohen, was amazing to watch. Here are a...
The question is, does the Ludwig Triad mounting bracket have the same hole spacing as the Classic Bracket? I can't find a direct answer on DFO or elsewhere online. Also, any opinions/feedback on the positives and negatives of the Triad vs. the Classic brackets is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I was at G.C. today looking for some new sticks. I've been playing the VF Erskine Ride stick for jazz for years. I love the stick, but, I prefer a lacquered stick for the tacky grip, and Ride sticks have been coming in totally bare for a few years now. Well, I saw a stick I hadn't seen before...
I am considering drilling my FT for leg brackets (and dispose of the Atlas lug/mounts), and drilling my BD for a tom mount. I haven’t drilled a drum previously, and before undertaking these endeavors, I would want to know that I am drilling EXACTLY where the factory would drill the same holes in...
Around 2005, I saw Steve Gadd in a clinic. After looking at the "office pics" posted by some of the DFO members, I remembered that, during intermission, I got this pic from behind Steve's kit. I thought you guys and gals might get a kick out of it.
After posting an Ignacio Berroa video on Cuban rhythms applied to drumset in the teacher's forum, I came across a couple of Giovanni Hidalgo videos that I thought you guys would appreciate.
The amazing sound (and skill) of a young GH's congas in this video just blow me away!
This is a workout that I came up with many years ago and forgot about. I was inspired by a local drummer (who I haven't seen before or since), who could play ridiculously fast and tasty patterns between his snare and bass drum while maintaining the ride swing pattern when trading 4's. All...
