Ya, I've been eyeing those Futz for a while.

They're really that good huh?

I never trust stuff like that, it always sounded really shady to me. Like the name itself, "Hansen Futz", hands and foots practice pad? But guess if you can vouch for it... because I definitely need something to work my feet as I can't play my set at my house because its too loud.

Great Post. Roddy is amazing.

That workout is in the Joe Morello Master studies Book. He calls 'The Stone Killer' as taught to him by George Lawrence Stone. The excersise gets deeper as you add Accents and double up. Plus you go into triple feel aswell. Check it out. The Book is really good in general and makes a great addition to classic Stick Control book by G L Stone which you MUST get if you want to step up your playing.
You can own the greatest drum ever made, but it won't change how well you can play it!

Hello all, I'm new to this site. I love that Roddy video. I used to do practice the half hour routine and it worked. I got to get back into that. I heard that Pete Sandoval from Morbid angel was coming out with a drum video. Unfortunately I heard this news like 3 or 4 years ago and I don't think its going to happen.

^^ This is the drummer from the most amazing Deathcore band ever, Despised Icon.


He's an intensely solid drummer. He even has a video of him playing a song by the band Nile.

Nile is known for the fastest music out there with a real drummer being, George Kollias.

Take note of his backwards stick technique and the power he plays with.

I believe someone even said they were marching sticks!

I love George Kollias, but my favorite drummer that played with Nile is Tony Laurano. That guy is a beast!!!!

A metal drummer that has had me in awe since the release of Between the Buried and Me's new album "Colors" has been Blake Richardson. I think I've listened to that album at least once a day since November. It's such an amazing album and I love the creativity and flexibility that not only Richardson exhibits but the entire band. I recommend it if you haven't already checked it out.

Hear hear, I think Colors is worthy of album of the year. It blends so well; the song transitions are perfect. And the drumming is spectacular. I love the opening to Sun of Nothing.

Heres a good exercize for the hands. its from scott johnson i think.

Straight 8s in 6/8, but use this sticking: R L R L R L / R L L R R L / L R L R L R / L R R L L R (repeat)
speeds around 120-140 (for a dotted quarter) will force you to control the doubles, as opposed to just throwing them into the drum and hoping that they bounce in time.
