Hey friends, a really cool project I get to be a part of has our first show on September 2nd. Come check it out! I am playing in the Dale Crover Band, which is so amazing to me I still don't believe it! @stevenmcdonald and Toshi Kasai are in it too....oh man. It's like I'm part of a super group where I'm the only one who isn't super. Lol. #dalecrover#melvins#drummer#drumming@thehihatla
Had a blast working with the legendary Allan Kristensen during the 2018 DCI Championships week. He (along with several others) has set a very high standard for percussion adjudication in this activity and I hope to live up to that standard every time I step on the field.
I have some insta_drum_daily247 bots following me, so this is: drum talk! Many words!
It's been a looong summer holiday (yass) and now I'm trying to switch work mode back on, and my engrish is a bit rusty, so... King Crimson! Bill Bruford! I got this transcription from Oscarj's Prog Transcriptions, you can download it for free btw! The beginning of the song is written in 17/16 time and I find it quite challenging to read, so I tried to simplify it in order to learn the pattern and maybe help others as well.
The hand pattern is basically 5 + 5 + 7 16th notes and you play it against a quarter note pulse which is played on the bass drum; add hihat on the 2nd and 4th note. The hand patterns permutate over three bars of 4/4 time and one bar of 5/4.
I wrote the hand pattern in 8th notes so it's easier to practise. The third pic shows how the pattern; 5 notes, 5 notes, 7 notes permutates through 4 bars of 16th notes (i.e. moves one note forward)
First, try to learn the 557 pulse by playing both hands on the snare drum: RLRL, accent on the red dots. Then apply the alphabetic mayhem on the drum set:
5: RBL RL
5: RBL RL
7: RBL RL RL
Right, both, left etc.. This could also be played as a swiss triplet; BRL instead of RBL.
Soundcheck noodling with a fun 16th note triplet lick! Wrapping up this tour run tonight and then back home. Stoked to get back to the studio kit 🔥
Here’s a couple straight ahead grooves I was jamming today in practice. I’m going to start adding synth to videos like this to give them more life and bring out a better idea of what I’m hearing in my head when I play them. I’ve got some fun news to announce soon, I hate when people do that, but this news is worth the wait!
