    Wow, you just made me think of that and realize that Grohl's drumming for Nirvana and early Foo Fighters is so straight-ahead, but his playing on the above mentioned albums is VERY not standard. Thanks, man - you just gave me yet another reason to love Dave Grohl.

          • Completely forgot my avatar, Carl Palmer. So many of his fills were so on top of the beat you would think he was playing a different song. It took me a really long time to get used to it and appreciate it too.



            And on the other end of 'where to place the note around the beat' is Charley Watts. Sometimes so laid back I'd slip off my chair listening to him.

            • Today's Question: "Are you unsure about the meaning of any particular drumming terms?"



              I'll start. In laymen’s terms (not technical book jargon!), can someone please explain the difference between a polyrhythm and cross-rhythm?

              • I am unsure about a great many drumming terms! I am also unsure about a great many other things!!


                Good playing can hide a crappy drumset, but even the best drumset can't hide crappy playing.

                    As I understand, being in the pocket just means that you're right in rythm and don't waver. A pocket on your pants is a small space with not a lot of room to wiggle around.

                        Never heard the term 'cross-rhythm', but a 'poly-rhythm' is simply two or more different rhythms played at the same time.

                            I believe there is.



                            Grace Note - A note played right before another. Think of bagpipe bands and all those lower notes right before the melody note. For us, it would be the hit right before a flam, or a ruff.



                            Ghost Note - The light hits on the snare in between hi hat beats. The off beat 16ths. But lighter, not bashing.

                                A cross-rhythm is a rhythm that uses any subdivisions (say eighth notes) and divides them into groupings that “cross” the barline. a steady stream of dotted quarters across several bars of 4/4 would be a good example.
