Nice. I still don't know how he can sit that low and play the bass drum.

I don't really know much about drumming but one of my favorite drummers to watch is Jim White of the Dirty Three, who is now kind of an indie rock drummer for hire, playing with Bonnie Prince Billie, Cat Power, Nina Nastasia and others. He's got a very flamboyant style with big flowing arm movements. He completely upstaged Bill Callahan when playing with Smog. It's hard to find a good YouTube clip, but here he is with Dirty Three:

Max Roach vs. Art Blakey vs. Elvin Jones?!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vA5dt9QT4Ms

Max is totally ridiculous, but when Blakey comes in it's just like "awww shit..."

Jordan, Monday, 6 August 2007 18:47 (twelve years ago) link

Here's Elvin's solo, he's not even trying to play the same game as the other two. Also the tape warping sounds sweet.

You can't see Usher's drummer in this clip, but he's totally ridiculous, esp. during the dance break.

I am a big fan of this guy, but it's kind of boring to watch this solo on youtube
http://youtube.com/watch?v=T-WBAOgpK0w

although maybe it's just the trumpet player's fidgeting in the background that's distracting me.

I do like when "Boogie Stop Shuffle" kicks back in.

Haha, this is a timely thread revive. I spent a couple hours last night watching JoJo Mayer's dvd: http://youtube.com/watch?v=VLQMFIueUyc

The first disc is real talk, probably the best thing I've seen on grips, basic wrist/finger techniques, moeller, etc.. Then on the second disc he gets into all the push-pull/thumb swivel/crazy fast one-hand stuff, some of which is like science fiction to me. :( But it's good drum geek shit, it made me want to get into more of a definite practice routine. And the little interludes where he's playing beats outside in all these different NYC spots are nice.

Jordan, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 15:40 (eleven years ago) link

that dvd is amazing. it's all hands!

thomas lang is one soulless motherfucker

at least mm had that funny part where he's playing to simpsons samples

Jordan, Wednesday, 14 November 2007 15:46 (eleven years ago) link

Stuff like that quickly turns into chops as an end rather than a means, so I tend to tune it out.

I just watched that with the sound off and imagined what the 'shredder' guy would have done with it.

re: neil peart, i don't know, i mean dude can play of course but he sounded kinda high school on the chart, and rockish at times on the solo.

great video, great player. i like all the stuff about how dance styles dictate the development of grooves in pop music, use of space, etc. and the super '70s snare sound and cymbal angles.

wow that is sad
let it also have been said that yogi horton was extremely easy on the eyes

vigetable (La Lechera), Tuesday, 23 December 2014 16:45 (four years ago) link

i like all the stuff about how dance styles dictate the development of grooves in pop music, use of space, etc.
yeah he confirmed things that i've only figured out by playing songs i like to dance to -- all the stuff about the way your body moves while playing is really otm. and when he talks about taking out some of the notes so you can have more space -- that totally makes sense wrt dancing as well. i can tell that he feels it. i think some people feel it more than others. he's a good teacher too, esp considering that he has no idea who his audience is.

vigetable (La Lechera), Monday, 29 December 2014 15:36 (four years ago) link

I wish someone had taught me about all that motion stuff when I was younger. Eventually I figured some of it out but my teacher was an orchestral percussionist and very focused only on the wrists and fingers which I don't think is ideal for drumset.

man alive, Monday, 29 December 2014 20:52 (four years ago) link

Totally loving the Yogi video. He's so engaging, and I love how he contextualizes everything. I have to admit, though, I was pretty ia about his movement -- the forearm-centered approach is relatively inefficient, and can result in a lot of wasted motion (and, ultimately, tendonitis in your elbows). But it obviously works for him (and the way he talks about the importance of movement -- both moving and observing -- is something too few teachers do).

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Monday, 29 December 2014 21:25 (four years ago) link

just now found out that Dave King (Happy Apple/Bad Plus) is doing a series of drumming videos. he's both one of my favorite drummers and favorite people to hear say words, so let's assume that these are essential viewing:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SutJLNk_8bU

virtuoso thigh slapper (Jordan), Friday, 2 January 2015 18:45 (four years ago) link

yeah i feel like that body movement business in the Yogi video is only useful if you already have your finger/wrist technique down cold, which he obviously does.

it's similar to Dave King actually, who uses his entire body in very expressive ways, although all the actual stick control is happening at a very micro level.

virtuoso thigh slapper (Jordan), Friday, 2 January 2015 19:11 (four years ago) link

i finally watched the end of the yogi horton video
he is otm about pushups and physical fitness in general

i'll watch dave king next i guess
i need some more input so please keep posting these!
lol @ "play it with an animal bone" seems like a good guy

vigetable (La Lechera), Wednesday, 7 January 2015 15:31 (four years ago) link

Early on in my drumming, I got advice that I took a little too literally that weightlifting was bad for your drumming -- I think this really only means lifting ultra-heavy, but I took it to mean weightlifting in general. Only later did I discover for myself that anything I did to strengthen my arms, back, core, legs, seemed to improve my drumming.

man alive, Wednesday, 7 January 2015 15:42 (four years ago) link

weightlifting is great! exercise is also a good time to study.

vigetable (La Lechera), Wednesday, 7 January 2015 15:44 (four years ago) link

definitely going to work in some of these rudimental concepts:

dave king seems like an amusing dude but he needs to stop addressing his audience and referring to drummers as guys.
