Re: Ndugu Ride

That's why I wrote no offense, just my opinion. Not that I think 'drummer's that play Paiste have no taste', that would rule out my favs. Bonham especially. They break real easy and Paiste's creative process is not creative. They don't make their own complex. They are cookie cutter cymbals. It's jus...

Re: Ndugu Ride

No offense , but 1, it's paiste and 2, Ndugu isn't exactly my favorite ride cymbal player. Whats the catch? :)

Re: Carlock moves to Grestch

The musical instrument world is not flourishing. Many of these drum companies are struggling to stay in business. I'm hearing many delusions of grandeur with regards to drummers being paid to endorse. Hardly anyone is on payroll nowadays. You can judge the sales success of a drum company based on on...

Re: Steve Hass new youtube channel!

Isaac, how was the gig? Did they play straight ahead jazz or something else? I know Dennis Hamm is a great fusion player but never heard him in this setting. He was in Virgil's band amongst many others. I love that left foot HH video. I love the fact that he can REALLY play but doesn't use these vid...

Re: Weckl can't groove? Really?

Happy New Year BTW...You can't argue with someone's opinion. It's an opinion. Music makes people feel a certain way. If they don't attain this emotion because a player leaves them cold, then so be it. What I notice on this board is that drumming is talked about as if there are certain requirements t...

Re: Weckl/Coleman "Duel" at Drum Fantasy Camp

In these types of settings Dave's strength's are not as visible. These types of things are designed for non-musician fans. By non-musician I mean weekend warriors, amateur players, and dabblers. There's nothing deep about blistering 16th and 32nd notes, also in triplet form, grouped every way possib...

Re: Bruner with Holdsworth (Dan Quayle Edition)

I love this debate because everyone is wrong and everyone is right. It's easy to try and think of drumming as a skill because it IS a skill until you become an artist. All the big time professionals are artists. They play they way THEY want to, and make a living at it. We can talk about what we like...

Re: Steve Hass new youtube channel!

I must have missed this video. I like how he says " ALRIGHT!" Cracks me up. Derek here's the video link embedded: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CqOMm5uMBbc I guess we're not clear on the level of tightness John was talking about because that Redman clip at 7:05 doesn't look any different ...

Re: Steve Hass new youtube channel!

Depends on which era of Tony, Bill not really. Depends on what you mean by quite loose. Check out this video of Hutch and Stewy. Hutch's is pretty choked, Stewy's is not chocked but not loose either. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYpPCIYvTis Today these players play their hihat as if it's as a kick...
