What’s in My Stick Bag? | Stick Bag Essentials

Gear. Everyone loves talking about gear. To be honest, I'm not really a "gear guy" - it just isn't my thing. I have a ton of philosophical reasons why I don't really talk about gear too much, but I'll spare you the pain because honestly they are just my opinions. It...

Anika Nilles | Septuplet Drum Fill

What can I say? I'm a sucker for odd times and odd note groupings. Anika has done such a great job in the past few years educating the world on how to apply quintuplets and septuplets to music. Before going too deep, I want to define some terms. Odd times/groupings -...

David Garibaldi | Full Lesson | Seven a Diddle

From the depths of your memory, go back to senior year of high school. Or, if you aren't there yet, fast forward to senior year of high school - and imagine something. You have been playing drums for several years now, and have just decided to go to college and study...

John Blackwell | Solo Transcription

Eric Harland | “Chronos” Solo | Transcription

What is up good people of the internet?! Last week was an ACTION PACKED week of rehearsing and playing jazz in the Nashville area. I don't play jazz as often as I would like to so every time I have a little run of jazz gigs, it always reignites my passion for the...

Todd Sucherman | Solo Transcription

It is rare to find an educator that is capable of teaching well and playing well. Street smarts versus book smarts. Most teachers are "book smart" because they have a lot of knowledge on a subject and can teach it well, but haven't applied those skills in the real...

Benny Greb | Signature Stick Review

Benny Greb is one of my favorite drummers. Not only can he groove and make just about everything feel great, but he has beautiful control and finesse over the drum set at all times. Most importantly - he is a very musical drummer. That is important. His DVDs The...

What is transcribing? In music - it is translating what you hear in a song/solo/groove/fill/etc and writing it out in music notation. Note for note, rhythm for rhythm, exactly what you hear in the music. I started transcribing sometime in college and before then I...

Drummers I Like | Podcast Interview
