Technique(s) / Re: Using paradiddles as triplets in fills and grooves.

I appreciate the feedback.

After watching I realized the same thing.

I may dedicate my smaller kit to become a video / recording kit and set up a second camera angle, mics, and not move it.

The fact I am always moving stuff for gigs and have no room in the basement makes it difficult.

Also as much as I would love 3 or 4 camera angles I can't afford another camera.   I have an old point and shoot digital but the video is quite bad. Better than nothing :).

Heck with the prices of everything these days I haven't even replaced the heads on my kit in over half a year. haha
Technique(s) / Top ten rudiments
« Last post by Scott Patterson on January 16, 2018, 09:19 AM »
Here are the top ten rudiments I use in my day to day playing.

You can change the accents, subdivisions, add flams, etc, and these could keep a person busy for years and years without working on the other 30.

I'm not saying don't learn the others, but for new students I teach these first and it changes their playing a ton.

Do you guys have any favorites you use all the time I didn't include?

Welcome to the Drummer Cafe, Tom.

I'm sure I can come up with a few hand drum repair questions for you!
Percussion Parlor / Daf Repair Needed In UK
« Last post by Dr. Tom on January 14, 2018, 02:04 PM »

I repair hand drums of all kinds and have been doing so for years.  People find me through my website, and recently someone from the UK contacted me about a daf that needs repair.  He says he cannot find anyone and is thinking of shipping it to Iran for repair.  I'm in the US myself, so it wouldn't be very practical for him to ship it to me and back.

If any of your reside in the UK and are willing and able to repair this daf, please contact me.

Percussion Parlor / Madagascar Djembes
« Last post by Dr. Tom on January 11, 2018, 08:22 PM »
I'm pretty knowledgeable about djembes, but there's one thing I don't know.  Are there many djembes made in Madagascar?  If they are made in significant numbers, are they made because there's a market for them or because of the culture?

I know, I know.  Djembes are West African drums, but who knows?  Maybe the djembe actually originated in Madagascar and was adopted and flourished in West Africa to such an extent that Madagascar djembes were overshadowed.  ???

By the way, I recently met such a drum.

Greetings Membranophonefolas,

Thank you for being here!  I love all things drums and drumming and am always looking to learn.

My online drumming hangout for years was a really great and active site with an incredible community.  Lately it's taken a turn for the worst, and I seem to be the only one showing up anymore.  I'm going to miss it.

The good news is that I googled around and found you guys!  I know you have much to teach me.  I repair hand drums for a living, so there may be a bit of knowledge I can share with some of you as well.

Thank you again for being here.
General Board / 10 minute death metal song
« Last post by Scott Patterson on January 08, 2018, 09:16 AM »
Here is one of my band Dissolution's new songs that is 10 minutes long. It is an endurance test to play this with no breaks. I know death metal is not everyone's cup of tea but it sure is fun to play.  It really picks up around the 2:45 point in tempo.

The audio is not CD quality, there are zero edits, and there are plenty of mistakes. I will be spending the next month ironing out the time changes, changing a few parts up and getting ready to record 7 brand new songs. I also chopped half my head off for some of the video when I bumped the camera, so lots of fails going on in this video haha. I might make another song soon to redeem this one.

I welcome constructive criticism.
Hi,I'm new member in this forum.This is my percussion performance video.Thanks.
