I've seen Peter, bugged him for autographs on cd's and have a pic with him. If I'm free, I'll be there. Columbia isn't too far from Charlotte.
I hope Sims Music is a well stocked store, with some goodies I don't see in Charlotte's big box stores. Thanks for the heads up!

G

G- Sims definitely isn't 'big box'...but it's a great place.

Mark- 'Both' hands full...I know!!!

What a great clinic! Good turnout, good atmosphere, and free bottled water.
Was nice to finally meet drum6282, especially since we both taught at Sims (also not at the same time!).

Ersko was awesome. Told some great stories and played beautifully in a quartet setting. After the clinic, he did the usual meet-n-greet, and took the time to give a few of us an impromptu brush lesson, and a sweet triplet lick (3 groups of 8 over 2 bars phrased 3-3-2).

I was left with several impressions.
1)He played a wide-open bass drum (with absolutely no muffling since there wasn't a copy of a newspaper laying around). I was blown away by what I could hear of his foot technique when it came to open and closed tones on the bass drum. Pretty awesome, really.
2)His concept of time. Most of us subdivide in our head, but he thinks less quarter note and more upbeat. Maybe this is how he's able to keep that beautiful forward motion in his playing (especially on slow-to-mid-tempo charts). I always feel like I'm trudging through swamp mud on slower tunes...maybe thinking upbeats instead of quarter notes will help.
3)He did a great illustration (hopefully processed by the younger kids in the crowd) of the drummer's main job of keeping time and playing for the song.

Peter-Thanks for coming to our little town and showing us such a good time!

Thanks SB, for the mini review! Sounds like sage advice was given. I'm digging drummers who play the bass drum open, the smaller bass drums, 18" or so. Suzi Ibara's latest cd has an amazing ex. of that bought from Papa Jazz, by the way. Thanks, again, SB! Oh, if anyone had a video camera running at one of his clinics!? I am sorry I missed it! Sims is a nice store. Made it down there Sat.
By the way, if you haven't, get Peter's new big band cd. Amazing playing! Pete has certainly from a "listener's" point of view, plays and says more with less, with clarity. Not to take anything away from his younger days...he seems to be more "zen" with his playing. The AJ pro clip is a nice example. I wonder what his cymbal set up sizes/models are, he was using? He seems equipped to play any genre of music and his sound would fit! When I grow up....(I'd love to be that well rounded!)

Ugh, i had to miss it, got a last-minute call for a Cinco de Mayo blues/RnB/classic rock/reggae-ska trio gig for some decent bread.

What made the miss all the more disgusting was the fact that PE also had Jeff Berlin & Richard Drexler "accompanying" on bass & piano respectively. Idea Neutral Ugh.

It was great to meet SBdrumz at the clinic and talk to Peter - his mid tempo swing is to do die for. I have practiced thinking on the upbeat more at a mid tempo and it's actually a little harder than I first imagined. I'm recording myself with the zoom H2 to make sure it's swinging. I'm also working on a lighter, more consistent, "touch" with the brushes. His touch is incredible. I sat across from him with a snare between us. He was showing me his "point" and slide with the brush - he told me to do it - I did it - didn't sound like his - he makes it look so easy and sound so good. The clinic was wonderful - he is truly an inspiration and wonderful player. I wish I lived on the other coast to get private lessons with him. He can explain things so easily - and makes analogies to help you "get it".

His cymbal set up was a 22" K Con Medium - main ride, 20" K Custom Left Side Ride, 22" A Swish Knocker, 16" K Dark Crash Thin (left), 18" K Dark Crash Thin (right), 14" A New Beat Hi Hats and a 9" or 11" K Custom Hybrid Splash. Those DW Jazz Series drums sounded great too. - little DW jab there Wink (yes, he'd sound great on anything and yes, he sounded great on Yamaha).
