    Help me learn and understand what I am playing (from a non-drummer perspective...)

    As you all know, I am mainly a guitarist, trumpet player, keyboards, etc... and doodle with drums (and as bizarre as it may sound - LEFT HANDED - while everything else I do is right handed). Anyway, I came up with this exercise pattern off the top of my head and don't quite get what I am doing...

    Jimmy Fox (Joe Walsh's band "James Gang") drum fills, buzz rolls, etc...

    Remember the classic "Funk #49" and "Walk Away" from the James Gang? Check out the original drummer back in 1971 behind Joe Walsh. Jimmy Fox played traditional grip, and played such incredible fills, rolls, etc.. Wow!! :D (1) James Gang - Walk Away (1971) - YouTube Edit: Sorry... You have...

    Messing around with my Alesis Nitro Mesh kit (jazz/shuffles, rock, rock w/cowbell)

    Sorry for the quality of the video... I should have zoomed out a little more, so the very top of my head wouldn't be cut off. Oops... Anyway, this is just me goofing around with my Alesis Nitro Mesh kit, LEFT HANDED, and showing the 3 favorite settings that I have programmed/saved into the...

    Anyone use different size drum sticks? (curiosity question of the day...)

    Good morning, Yesterday I stopped to the local music store (Sam Ash) and decided to pick up a pair of Vic Firth 5AN (nylon tip) to alternate styles with my lighter Vic Firth 7AN (nylon tip). I use nylon tips because I have that Alesis Nitro Mesh E-drum kit. Harder thicker sticks or heavily...

    Jazzy guitar chord progression in "B" at 104 bpm. What type of drum groove could go with this?

    This is just a rhythm track for playing drums to. I am playing a jazzy descending chord progression on my Gretsch hollow body at 104 bpm in a standard 4/4 tempo with a triplet pattern at the "turnaround" going back to "B". At the very end, I strum slow Whole Notes with the Bigsby for a nice...

    Cowbell!! (I found it in the menu for Alesis!)

    So cool! :cool: I spent some time this afternoon reading and re-reading a .pdf file that I downloaded & printed out from Alesis. It totally lays out their entire sound bank settings. Snares... Crashes... Toms... etc..etc.. So, as everyone knows with Alesis and Roland and whoever, you have a...

    Single paradiddle (faster and faster...OMG...)

    How in the world does this guy play a single paradiddle rudiment (especially at 1:30 in the video) so fast and so cleanly? I have to seriously practice what he is doing and follow along very carefully, slowly building up speed. Wow!! :cool:

    Sample of me playing my Alesis Nitro Mesh kit (heavily EQ'd through a 50watt amp)....

    I plugged my Alesis Nitro Mesh in and mic'd a basic 50watt amp.... Opened up Audacity on my laptop and away I went! I had to seriously EQ the drums through Audacity, but it came out pretty decent. What do you think? I am *NOT* a skilled drummer, never took lessons, mainly self-taught, etc...

    Late to the game (discovering Joe Morello --- WOW!)

    I know I'm still somewhat of a "newbie" on here and I have an Alesis E-drum kit. I'm not that skilled of a drummer, mainly self taught, and lefthanded... However, I watched some YouTube clips of the world famous, legendary, Buddy Rich. Everybody on earth has heard of Buddy Rich! However, his...

    Practicing basic rudiments with traditional grip?

    Good afternoon, First off, allow me to confess that I have never really had a professional drum lesson in my life. I mean, okay, back in the 70's in high school, I got "shown" how to play a basic 4/4 tempo rock beat, and that was it. I took it from there and sort of picked up things on my own...

    "Other" instrument? Uh... which one?

    I am so glad I found this forum, as many others can help me with my drumming skills. I want to learn more besides the common "4 on the floor" 4/4 rock beat, or the equally common 12/8 "blues shuffle" that everyone knows. Anyway, getting back to the topic at hand... Like others on this forum...

    Just signed up... Lefthanded drummer here...

    Greetings everyone! I stumbled on this forum and realized that it is one of the better ones I have seen. I am primarily a horn player, guitarist, keyboardist, and can play drums as well. What's odd is all my gear is naturally righthanded, but yet when I play drums, I play Lefty, like Phil...
