    HAPPENING NOW: Cymbal & Gong coming to Germany

    Hey Seb— responded directly by email— that cymbal is taken, but I will probably leave some things with @griener— you can reach out to him through the forum, and probably meet him when you’re in Berlin, and play whatever cymbals are still around!

    Good book for strengthening my left hand and rudiments?

    Thanks for mentioning that. There are some things I do with Dahlgren & Fine that take this further, for developing actually using the LH more on the drum set. For general conditioning just do the LH lead exercises in Stick Control-- 2x a much as RL ones. Use a mirror and check your technique...

    What's that?

    Left Side Ride

    Just a contrasting sound. The main cymbal should sound like your primary voice, the other one should be different-- usually higher pitched and smaller, maybe a lighter sound, or cleaner, or darker. Maybe with rivets or no rivets, if the main cymbal has/doesn't have them. I usually don't play...

    Here's a list of cymbals I'll be bringing-- there are a couple of extra special discount items in there-- you'll have to come to find out which! Videos of most of the cymbals are on the Cymbalistic site-- some are brand new, and have no videos. 22" Special Janavar "Vivian" - 2106g - RESERVED...

    How do I fix my inaccurate perception of reality?

    First put the recording away for however long it takes you to forget what you were trying to do, and then listen and see if it still sounds bad. Otherwise you can make timing awareness your whole job-- so 100% of the notes you play state the time. No cruising along absently playing by feel...

    Amb on a bass drum?

    I used an unmuffled Ambassador on my 20" Gretsch on every gig I played for about 10 years.

    Updated to add meet times. Here's some video of some C&G 11th Anniversary cymbals-- Elvin Jones tribute cymbals. I'll be bringing a couple of these with me:

    What double-hockey L am I playing here..?

    It's in 3? You're a man after my own heart, though. Gregg Keplinger was playing this for everyone who ventured into is shop at one point:

    What double-hockey L am I playing here..?

    Those Greeks will have your n*ts. Here are a couple of my things that happened on their own-- an 11 note pattern, and a 3:2 pattern.

    What double-hockey L am I playing here..?

    Hell, write it in 7/8 then you'll really be over the barline. Without a context the meter = the length of the pattern.

    What double-hockey L am I playing here..?

    If I told you everybody would be doing it, and you can say sayonara to your individuality. Actually I don't care: Threesome: 8th notes in 9/8, hitting the tom on the 1&A and 3. In the middle it shifts to the 2 and 3&A. Downbeat plus end of the "triplet" of the following beat, whatever beat...
