I didn't mean to be snarky. I honestly thought both you and Nacci were joking. As if a guitar player, tongue-in-check, said "you know, that Hendrix guy sure played that tune a lot like Stevie Ray Vaughn would have." Ha, ha.First off I didn't say Ringo "sounded" like Keltner. Doesn't matter who was influenced by who. I was simply pointing out that Ringo played this song very similar to what Keltner would have played. It was just an observation, not an "expert" opinion.
Just do it. Nothing complicated about this one. Unless I’m missing the inner nuances that only Ringo can provide on this beat. I’m sure it won’t be long before I’m enlightened on how this one is harder than it sounds but somehow still have confidence that so many on here can play this beat.I'd love to play a pocket that deep like that just once...
Maybe you want to demonstrate it for us? Are you denying that there is ANY nuance? Any drummer can play this beat and should sound good, if not, dqydj. However, I'm sure you know, it's not what you play, is it, it's how you play. All good drummers play for the song, have their own God-given talents and have followed a path that makes them play the way they do. Ringo is just another. If you were gigging when that whole thing happened (Beatles) you might look at lots of thing differently. Each drummer has their own feel, no? Or, do we all sound the same?Just do it. Nothing complicated about this one. Unless I’m missing the inner nuances that only Ringo can provide on this beat.

I'm working from home and don't have a kit setup at the moment (in a town-home). I posted some vids on the Post Your Drumming thread. If you like, you can glance at a few videos and determine if you think I can handle playing kick on 1 and 3 with snare on 2 and 4. Maybe I can, maybe I can't. I'll let you be that judge... but I still think that most of the drummers on this forum could do well playing everything Ringo played in the video.Maybe you want to demonstrate it for us?
I'm sure it does. There is much about my drumming that makes me sound like me, but that does not mean that a track I record can't be replicated or that this Ringo track would only sound like this by Ringo. This track is simple enough to where just about any drummer who is competent can replicate it in that band setting, my response was to a drummer saying "I'd love to play a pocket that deep like that just once... " and he can. You can. We all can, especially with a beat like this. Just do it. There are many drummers on this forum and off that could record that same beat like that and I suspect it would be hard to pick which is Ringo from the recording if the beat is played as displayed.I have no doubt that you are a competent drummer. Does your playing have any nuance specific to your drumming life experience, or would about any drummer in this forum sound pretty much the same?
