Re: Steve Smith and Jojo Mayer duet at VF

More than one way to read that... Anyway, and with YT blocked here, I'll just say that the Indian rhythmic vocal system is best left to experts. McLaughlin, who's been working with Indian music for decades now, is only OK at it. A good example, done by the percussionists, opens Shakti's album A Hand...

Re: New Gary Chaffee Book

Though I sometimes find his stuff to be on the obssessive / compulsive side of things, he has interesting ideas. Done and done. Thanks for the heads up.

Re: Russ Miller leaves Yamaha- Yamaha moving to China?

This was posted on "another forum," I can't vouch for it but interesting if true: From Dave's Drum Shop in Ottawa, Canada: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Yamaha Discontinue long running Drum lines. The FINAL date for ordering these drums is June 28th 2013. There will be no exceptions after that. Maple C...

Re: Eliminating interference

I thought of the Colin Bailey classic "Bass Drum Control," and happened to read that he's turned it into a DVD. This should help: http://www.amazon.com/Bass-Drum-Technique-Colin-Bailey/dp/B004HMY6LQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364478911&sr=8-1&keywords=colin+bailey+bass+drum+techni...

Re: Eliminating interference

I've never been comfortable with heel down playing. Didn't have a drumset teacher (as opposed to snare drum teacher) for about 10 years and gravitated to heel up on my own. Everything I know about heel down playing I learned sitting about 2 feet to the left of Tony Williams for a set at Yoshi's in t...

Re: Animals as Leaders' Matt Garstka

Matt was pretty amazing last night. The whole AAL set is tightly arranged but he got several solo spots and, yes, there was quite a bit of gospel chops influence, now that you mention it. Tosin Abasi is quite the guitar god, too. Meshuggah was crushing. A brutal, pummeling set - as you'd expect. I h...

Re: Animals as Leaders' Matt Garstka

Wow. That will be an intense night of drumming. Meshuggah is the heaviest music I can listen to. They're great. Yeah, same here re Meshuggah. Looking forward to it. Get some music geek time in with the son since it'll be a 90 minute or so drive from the S.F. Bay. Was hoping my copy of the new Steve...
