Gregg is great; I`m looking fordward to see the guy playing! The drum fest is going to be great, I`m working every day to get the sponsors and all the logistics, thanks to Mapex drums everything has become very easy, in the past was way more difficult, now sponsors know me and they have thurst in me.
Actually my ruffs ghosting notes come from Gadd, Mike Clark, Frank Katz, Lenny White and Billy Cobham. But what I`ve learned from Gregg Bissonette was to play an 5 against 4 polirhythm in a transcription from a Modern Drummer Magazine of the 80`s I guess it was a Brandon Fields record.
When it comes to reading music, there was a time when my reading was not that good, But nowdays I can read upside down
its very important for any drummer to be able to read music to be able to learn material more quickly and to have an structure of the music. take the Louis Bellson 4/4 and read the parts in 80 the quarter note for example lol or read a piano score...reading is not a subject between musicians anymore
I guess I`m considered a Shredder with musical education lol but I`m starting singing with a duo that we play acoustic Beatles covers... I`m trying to get the confidence to sing on a gig (takes time)
Once again I`m glad I`m actively back at the forum. I read and see ll the posts..just like in 2006 but I have less free time...
