    I'm going through Mike Johnson's book Linear Drumming...going through the ALL the excercises religiously. I am also working on "the ladder". I'm not sure if I'll ever get it up to speed.....it's tough for me right now. I guess that's why I'm practicing it, huh?

        Performing my last gig with a pretty good buzz, and having musicians in attendance come up and do some songs that we'd never played as a group before for a end of night jam-a-thon.



        We stopped playing at 1:30AM like we should have - just no one wanted us to stop...lol.

              Pretty much the same thing here. Lots of **************** with my left hand. And making my right foot be independent from it.

                Hey Gremson, try this exercise out for independence between feet and hands. It should help a lot!

                    Been working on not a lot of technique, just getting ready for my first gig back since my broken leg fiasco. The songs we're covering have pretty easy beats, but I'm working on spicing things up a bit so I'll let you know what I'm working on when I figure it out! lol...



                    And, in response to previous question, kick is 22" x 16"

                      well, working on that pays me a lot more than playing drums.

                        Practice: about every Weds and maybe Thurs (my days off) for about 2-4 hrs. (Muted drums played wit blaststicks/sound like the drums you heard on MTV Unplugged)

                        Last thing on Drums: didn't play tonight, wasn't feeling right earlier. last week and lately I have been playing along with random old CDs that I haven't heard or played with in ages. Last CD was Foreigner's Agent Provacator from 84' with songs "I Want to Know What Love Is" "That Was Yesterday" "Love In Vain"



                        (sidebar) The other day, the shelf that holds an old glass beer pitcher with my Hard Rock sticks and such in it fell and glass broke, so tonight I moved drums and cleaned up all the glass. Some of it had gotten in between the drums rim and edge of the head so I took the rims off, cleaned them off and retightened the toms heads and retuned them. Hopefully I get to practice Thurs night!

                          I have so little time to play that when I do have the chance, I just work on time. I feel the ability to keep good time is the easiest thing to lose, so that's what I focus on.

                            Today's Question: What are some of your favorite styles 0f music to play?



                            Oh man, so many. If I had to pick only a few, I would probably go with funk, jazz, brazilian, and afro-cuban.



                            Edit: Damn, I almost forgot freeform/experimental. Probably my favorite out of all of them!

                              Rock...and big band era swing/Chicago Blues...the second being what I'd like to do, if I had all the right pieces because I think it'd be VERY successful...just getting over the hump and playing out would be the hard part.



                              The first, being because thats what I like.



                              But, as a drummer, it really doesn't matter what the music is.

                                Rock, Metal and some Prog.



                                I don't branch out much and I'm ****************tier drummer because of it.
