Don,

That is very, very cool.
2x6+3 and flowing. I h
hear 15. Am I wrong?

Your new set-up really
has freed your hands up
and in a way I really like.
Of course, I have always
liked what you do but
now, I like it even more.

cheers

Regards,

That's right, Pete.

Though I'm thinking more in 5 quarter notes:

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 1 etc. or you can count it as 10/8:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1...

But thinking in terms of 6/8 X 2 + 3, you're absolutely
right.

The open hand style has opened up some doors that
were closed for sure. By changing the kit rather than
myself, I didn't have to relearn much outside of doing
fills from right to left and getting used to having the
hh on the right side.

Playing this way is very cool and lot's of fun!

Thanks for checking it out.

Oh, so you are naturally a rightie and set up like a left handed drummer? Interesting. So, you are still leading right, but when you do your feels do you lead left to go left? I didn't watch close enough to notice.

Cool idea though. Having a remote to my right is as open handed as I need to get. Does make a big difference.

I'm left handed, Asaph... I lead with the
right hand as a right handed player would.

Oh. So, you're doing an opposite open-hand thing from Lenny or Billy. I see. So, basically, you were doing what Rod Morganstein or Phil Collins does, and you went open-handed. I get it now.

Not quite, Asaph. My hi hat is on the right
but I still control it with the left foot via a cable.

I still play the snare with my left hand

My ride is still on my right side so I still play
essentially the same except that The actual
hats are on the right side and the toms have
been switched where they run small to large
from right to left.

Here's some single kick setups of mine that
shows the concept in more detail.

So ... you are left handed, but ... right footed? You went open-handed up top and went from lefty to right handed on lead, but ... well, no, you changed lead foot as well. That's quite a feat.

After looking at the pics I am curious to know how many pedals you have, which ones. I noticed the BOA. I've read here that you have others. How do you compare them all?

I'm left handed and left footed. I never switched feet.

Pedals: I have the Iron Cobra, Axis Longboards, a couple of Gibralters
a Mapex pedal. I even still have my trusty chain drive Camco.

The Boa is THE best pedal system I've ever used hands down! The've
been discontinued and are EXTREMELY hard to find. I'm really happy
and fortunate to have been able to aquire them.

I love the Axis and Iron Cobra also, they're wonderful pedals, but the
Boa is king of the hill as far as I'm concerned. Direct drive, no springs,
no hinges, a whole slew of adjustment capabilities and quiet like a cat...
Ingenious design!

I read Pete's comments about the BOA. Seems strange they could not come to grips with some issues, re-design and keep it in production.

Left handed, left footed, but never switched feet. I missed a page. How can you play lead with your left kick and the cable hat at the same time, other than in unison?

BTW, when I clicked on the pics nothing happened, so I assume that is a privilege for Facebook members only.

LOL!!! Okay, Asaph Let's see if we can get an understanding going here.

I Play just as a right handed person would approach the drums. Even though
I'm left handed and left footed..... So:

I play the snare with my left hand.
I lead with my right hand.
I play the lead bass drum with my right foot.
Hi hat is on the right but the pedal is on the left via a cable.

I'll see what I can do about getting the pictures up.
