Hey guys,
I'm Frankie, I've been playing drums for 13 years now and I'm living in London for almost two years. I had the pleasure last year to collaborate with a studio called "Studio 147" where we recorded a few drum cover videos.
Let me know what you guys think and hope you like it :)

Hey guys! How are you doing?
I wanted to check with you what do you think of these videos I'm doing. The idea is to have a digital list of exercises to pick from so that you can create your own daily routine. And it would be visual too because these are going to be short videos explaining the exercise. Plus you can download the transcript. I uploaded four for now. Just to see how it goes, you know... but my goal is to have like a bunch of them.
Here's one. I called it Triplets Accents Change. I saw it in many books and many teachers gave it to me too, as an exercise.
The concept is to play each triplet with one hand, changing hands each bar. Plus you'll be accenting each 1/8 note of the triplet every 4 bars. Maybe it's easier to see it that to write it down

Check it out and tell me guys what you think of it

Okay, how badass is this? Watch the whole thing, there are a number of things I've never seen anyone do before. Such an impressive showman!

I, like you, have notated the sweeps with ties in the past.

What I do now is use the legato mark over the note. This allows the rhythmic notation to remain intact and accurate, while allowing the performer to know (assuming they have already been told to use brushes) that the legato mark (horizontal line above the note) is for sweeps or stirring.

What I like about this approach is that there is no need for a legend or nomenclature key. Legato means giving the note it's full, long value; smooth and connected. You could use any symbol you want to achieve the end result, but again, you'd need to have a key to clue the perform what it all means.
General Board / notation for brushes
« Last post by John Kerr on March 20, 2015, 09:46 AM »
Other than a slew of quarter notes, it occurs to me that I have never really seen specific notation for jazz brushwork, for a groove in particular.  Is there any particular way that anyone notates the sweeps and the taps in the same measure?  I've used ties for sweeps but that becomes impractical when overlaying rhythmic notation for the other hand, in which case I suppose you might just notate the taps and leave the sweeps as an implied.

And have I just answered my own question?

Wow, I should do this more often...

Barts suggestions are good. I've been through this problem and I would have another person grab the bottom stand while you slowly wiggle it loose. Don't let it sit with soap too long or the soap will dry and glue it too the stand. Grab the stand and wiggle it loose while pulling it upward.  ;)
