We killed the bastard who made our simple "sun and tree worshiping" days to a Catholic, Neo-European life... wait, is that a good thing?

 

I guess your the first to noticed :LOL:

 

But since thats the past,

Pity they can't do that on the real thing. It just feels different and causes blisters.

 

 

And 12 is not much of a Filipino thing... That I know of... umm... no, nothing comes to mind. Hey alyssa_, is 12 a Filipino thing? :LOL:

Assassin GOB

 

I screwed up a bit (see the youtube description), but ahh what the hell...

You still can't really distinguish my drums from the recording that well.

 

I swear my stupid editing program mashes all the sound into a big pile of shit. :/

I see he has a range of vids on youtube under "xeviworld"...actually he seems quite a nice helpful chap :) probably just turns psyco when behind the drums :)

 

I don't think he is playing anything "wrong" ...he is just improvising...which is the term I use when I can't play something exactly heh heh.

 

Anyway chaps...getting better on repetitive bass playing (single pedal only.... ahem) but still struggling after a minute or so and can't decide whether heel up or down is better / less painfull / or easy to keep going. Any thoughts as to how to keep practicing there and to nail it. Typical rythm would be like 3 beats then no beat at fairly brisk pace...e.g. Foo fighters "times like these".

 

As always...yr advice appreciated....

I find it easier to do singles like you described heel up, as you can suspend your ankle and just use your toes, whereas heel down seems to put more strain on the front of the ankle. Foo Fighters are a good band to play along with to develop constant singles, "Hero" especially.

Thanks...yeah I too find heel up is easier on the ankle but the downside is that it tends to push my balance off over to the left whereas having the heel down gives you more of an anchor to the floor. I shall persevere though on the heel up.

Ahhh,

Taylor Hawkins is the king of 8th bass notes.

He loves it, and its great for foo fighters.

My advice is keep your back down, it might be a little hurty at the beggining, but majority of the time, it'll be good.

By down, I dont mean flat, keep it like 2cm off the ground, but dont make it like Tyrannosauras feet, you can actually hurt yourself.

Stretch,

Here, i have a great song to practice that with.

A aussie band called Divisions has a song called Witching hours,

Its on their site, The chorus is the same format.

Go to their myspace: http://www.myspace.com/divisionsmusic and listen to it.

If you need the song add me on msn, and ill pass it along.

Cheers.

So I just bought a pair of Pro-Mark 5B's...

 

After first I freaking hated them, but now I like them quite a bit. I like the feel more than 5A's now. They're more powerful too, hehe.

i used to use vater religioulsy - until i went to get some more and they had run out.....

 

so yeah, i got promark 5bs and i really like em - slightly more defined than the 5as I used to use and so far *touch wood* theyve been a bit stronger and less likely to break!

 

promark ftw! :D

Yeah I usually get Vic Firths or Vaters...

 

Not sure why I never tried Pro-Mark, they're sweet! haha.

 

Apparently Dom uses Pro-Mark Marco Minneman 721's or something too, haha. 721's thickness is about inbetween 5B's and 5A's... I might try that out too. :rolleyes:

 

edit: Actually MM 721's have 3 or 4 different thicknesses.... grr.

Carbosticks are great. They sound and feel pretty much like wooden ones but last quite a while longer. Also, you don't get all those annoying chunks of wood everywhere, just some fine, powdery dust.
