I listened to CCEEBII Paint the World a TON - love that recording. It's been interesting watching Novak evolve over the years. I took a lesson with him years back, it was just a casual hang really. We didn't any drumming, just listened to a CD of me, then I pegged him with questions for a while. He...
Became a fan when I couldn't stop listening to JLP "Tchokola" in 1991...still a favorite record. He is a Richard Bona - like dude...plays everything and sings...friggin good drummer. Soooo relaxed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqRAzem5Xic 2:48 is suspiciously similar to the outro for Man...

That was always a wicked element to his version of that fill. It's like four-wheel-on-the-fly. EDIT: Ironica...
Yeah once I got into this, I started recognizing when other cats like Vinnie would turn this on. It's pretty effective, good workout for the hands at faster tempos too. I like the over-the-pulse phrasings you chose. I guess this is why I thought of Vinnie. He uses them out of context all the time. ...
I know Vinnie didn't invent 32nd notes (although I think this requires some historical research), but this is like the first step to a Vinnie primer.

Hey guys, I've been playing drums for years, but don't know how to read music. What are your recommendations for learning to read music? I'd like to be able to read charts to do beat-oriented gigs (rock, country, gospel, etc.). Nothing too technical yet. Just to be able to play through songs (vocal...
