Amen to that, brother.Homki890":3kgahukc said:Tips on filling:
--Don't play more than you need too. These guys you see all the time are blazing away with massive fills and complex rhythms. Truly, it is not needed, and they all started somewhere. Play musical. Play "tasty."
--You can't go wrong with the snare drum. If you have a fill coming up, and you are not sure what to play, that snare is right in front of you. Use it.
--Use the hi-hat to help you. Your left foot can constantly keep a steady 1-2-3-4, or maybe just a 2-4 pattern. It helps not to get off.
--ABOVE ALL ELSE, Keep a steady beat. There is nothing more hated in the world of drumming than a fill that gets off-beat. Drummers have been the time-center for bands. It is us who keeps everyone on the same page. If we are off, then the whole thing is going down in flames. Keep your beats and fills on time. Practice Timing exercises.

College rock: Carter Beauford from DMB
Rock: Chad Smith from RHCP
Prog Rock: Neil Peart from Rush
Prog Metal: Danny Carey From Tool
New Wave of American Metal: Chris Adler
Death Metal: It's a toss up between Kevin Talley, Flo Mournier, and Derek Roddy
Punk: Bill Stevenson on any Black Flag or Decendents record
Jazz: Buddy Rich and Joe Morello(it's a toss up)
yeah. him and bill bruford. that guy purposely has his toms in broken pitch, seperated with two on either side of his snare.m":s0i20uae said:I'd vote for Gavin Harrison as the least likely to play a cliche fill-
his are surprising and unexpected, and always embellish a song in just the right way.
