    Drummers are homosexuals. One of the few instruments that's entirely incapable of sounding good by itself. Only thing worse is maybe clarinet.

    Anyone have any resources for learning traditional grip? I have a student who uses it (junior fife & drum band member trying to learn to play kit so he can be in his school's jazz band) but I've only ever played matched grip and I want to know more about trad grip so I can help him better.

      rick dior is the video go to, hands down, for most things.

      but its kinda the same thing: using arm, hand, rotations, but instead of fingers pressing up for fulcrum action, its thumb pressing down. thumbs are strong as fuck and the action is so gentle and resilient. you heard a lot of bitches whining OH my friend in music school hurt himself with trad grips but theyre full of shit.
      so uh yeah, rick dior.

    Explain how to count over what I play like if I was a retard ( I am )

      Is it a matter of not being able to focus on counting and playing at the same time, or do you not understand how rhythms are counted in the first place?

      ok try this, assuming you dont do any magic moves beyond 16th notes:

      you count out loud and evenly subdivided grid of meter
      1 e & a 2 e & a 3 e & a 4 e & a which the repeats starting at 1. Every note you hit with you hands of feet falls on one of those syllables. practice beat boxing a beat - first as booms pish or what ever, then as the grid numbers (ONE a-TWO THREE & FOUR), then counting and playing with hands and feet. thats the basic thing id try if i read your question correctly. eventually counting gets different, mor elike breathing i guess.

      Play a super simple beat, like (kick+hats)(just hats) (kick+hats+snare) (just hats). And as you do say OUT LOUD: (1)(2)(3)(4). There. Nailed it. You can count on er what you play.

    I'm still trying to figure stuff out, started drumming about three months ago, and because of my room's setup, I set it up in lefty position as a right hander. Mostly just trying to copy Sara Lund and Ringo, trying to listen to drum grooves I like and replicate them while drumming, as well as some samba stuff.

      hey be free
      but wouldnt recommned doing weird non-standard shit to start and also would recommend basic grinding through the basic books - Syncopation, Stick Control, then the Advanced Technique book. Speed and endurance grinding, learning doubles, etc. will change and expand your sensibility - not that you got one just yet tho.

        Yeah, I'm definitely focusing on technique, most of it is just grabbing how to demarcate different drum sections with minimal work. I had experience with bass and keys before and very minimal on guitar, so the drums come in very lats, and I'm still learning all the technique stuff. Only fills I can do right now at any significant speed is to do triplets on the snare for a bar then hitting a cymbal on the one, and playing the toms on top of the beat then hitting a cymbal on the one.

    Dumb. Too many drums. Literally all you need is one rack and one or two floors. Listen to what jason roeder or chris hakius can do with a minimal kit.

      One rack and one floor seriously limits your ability to play melodic stuff and orchestrate around the kit though. This is a cool looking setup imo. Drum kits should be played like xylophones.

        learn to articulate many sounds from a single drum like a master

        • 3 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          I dont need to learn, i already can. Now imagine the huge range of sounds i can articulate from each single drum in a huge kit. If you genuinely believe that you can work the entire range of pitches and sounds that OP's kit could make out of a single drum, then you do not understand how drums work.

      No you There's a traditional 4 piece kit in there. It's there if that's all you can handle. But it's nice to have options, and a big kit gives you that. Imagine looking at a piano and going "dumb. Listen to what [mediocre pianist] can do with only an octave and a half" or something.

    I hate that it's cheaper to make music on high end computer than to buy a decent musical instrument, a tama kit is more expensive than a mac and RTX pc

      Straight up just buy something used on Craigslist and put new heads on. Properly tuned heads ate gonna be more important to the sound than tone woods or whatever.

      like the other anon said, buy something cheap off cragislist. as long as the wood and hardware is in decent shape, (properly tuned) new heads will make it sound like a million bucks. I'd recommend buying a cheap craigslist/facebook marketplace kit, a drum-dial tuner, and top and bottom heads. then slowly replace cymbals with higher-end ones (cheap cymbals can't really be fixed to sound good). start with hi-hat and ride. those will really tie the room together. as for recording the kit, it's never been easier or cheaper. you need a cheap set of drum recording mics (don't fall for the 'le expensive mic' meme). I've seen used cheap drum mic sets (with mounts/clips) go for as low as $100. the most important part of recording your drums is having each kit piece record to a different track in your DAW. you'll wanna buy a usb interface that has enough inputs AND can do multi-track recording. don't be fooled, just because an interface has 8 inputs doesn't mean it'll do multi-track into your DAW. you'll have to do your research. the tascam interfaces are really nice, and again, i've seen them go for like $150 used.

        i use an old sony minidisc recorder and a pretty crappy mic for whole kit recording. good enough for me.

      On one hand its unfortunate because watching someone play the drums is part of the performance. On the other hand, a MacBook is just sooo easy to carry around

    What do you guy's think of electronic drum kits if you aren't good enough at playing the drums yourself?

      You do actually have to be able to play the drums to play an electronic kit though? They don't play for you. You're thinking of a drum machine.

      Anyway here's a cool modern usage of e-drums for something other than just practice or 80s sounds: https://youtu.be/tj3mg3zhNGw
