I used to say "You should never have more tom toms than you have testicles". This guy did me one better!kplante069":ymzium76 said:Amazing! You read so many posts about drummers who want huge sets and cymbals everywhere. I've been guily of it too. If you can't do it with a 4 piece & a couple of cymbals than you can't do it.
I believe he's a single-kick guy. Half the stuff he does is simply hand-to-foot, with a lot of modulation. For example, play the snare with your left hand and your floor tom with your right hand and try this exercise all the way through (this exercise is learned best slowly, while keeping quarter notes going on the hi-hat):Gazdkw82§":3s5gkfxc said:i wanna some of them licks but where do you start. i can work out there is alot of linear stuff in there, and his left hand never stops. i cant work out though, does he use double kick?
Sorry, yes:Gazdkw82§":363p055s said:whats the R F L stand for? is it just right hand, foot and left hand?
would be cool to see you demonstrate this on a vid (youtube) or sound fileGaddabout":2hl6fm61 said:Sorry, yes:Gazdkw82§":2hl6fm61 said:whats the R F L stand for? is it just right hand, foot and left hand?
R = Right hand
L = Left hand
F = Bass drum/Right foot
I do a lot of these fills on my five-piece and there so many cool combos you can do. I was just offering one version.
I think the best part about getting hand-to-feet fills down is you can incorporate a lot of seriously cool stuff while maintaining a ride pattern. Vinnie Colaiuta does a lot of left-hand-to-right-foot fills -- complicated phrasings and notation -- to a cascara pattern on the ride while keeping a slushy quarter note going on his hi hat. It feels and sounds good.
i heard a lot of people refer to this as "the john bonham fill" i think its also been called "the third arm technique" you basically incorporate you kick drum into a fill as if it was another tom. so for example, if you have a one beat fill and you use sixteenth note, you could do Right, Kick, Right, Left, as 16th notes rather than going right, left, right, left. its adds that extra sound source in your fill and once you get this down you can do some sweet fills. if you practice lots of linear beats than you can take the same ideas and use them in a fill scenario.Gazdkw82§":3afa29bg said:would be cool to see you demonstrate this on a vid (youtube) or sound file
