  6. [..YouTube..] well one thing that i dislike is that you’re gonna be teaching the Drumeo/freedrumlessons/drumlessons/whatevertheyrecalled way, which made you take 7 minutes in this video to explain something that would normally take YOU one minute, and i’m afraid that you’re idea’s won’t be as wild as your youtube videos. but i’ll consider it, now that i don’t have time for private lessons anymore…

  16. [..YouTube..] awesome though, two of my favorite drumming teachers teaming up! that’s what I’m talking about

  17. [..YouTube..] The ‘triplet’ section is actually a 3/4 polyrythm. This was definitely a very simple way to teach that! Good job dood

  18. [..YouTube..] Thanks man! Actually, I’d personally perceive that as a three over two polyrhythm, twice. If you take just the snare drum, that would be three over four, but I was thinkin’ about it as the bass drum 😀

    My fav part of rhythm is you can perceive it however the hell you want!

  25. [..YouTube..] Nice lesson!
    Are you using demon drive pedals with wood beaters?
    And is ’cause i’m watchin on my phone or you are a little bit out of metronome while playing the exercices?
    Or is your metronome not going on time? ;D
    But this is a great lesson for sure!

  26. [..YouTube..] Yeah! And that’s what I’m talking ’bout! but these are useless if other band members are not as professional as you’re! so, waiting for them to catch me up to do something like this LIVE!

  27. [..YouTube..] haha yeah man! A quick way to train them is replace your left foot hihat with something obnoxious like a jam block. Force them to hear the original pulse and stick with it 😀

  28. [..YouTube..] haha yessir on the wood beater demons and yeah a couple parts of the exercises I drifted. We shot these all in a pass pretty much, so it’s not 100% perfect, but it gets the point across 🙂 Good ear!

  31. [..YouTube..] why do you call it “metric” modulation? I don’t see the correlation with the metric system.

  32. [..YouTube..] Next week, Imperial modulation!

    …if you actually want an answer, lemme know and I won’t make such a stupid response next time 😛

    …if you actually want an answer, lemme know and I won’t make such a stupid response next time 😛

  33. [..YouTube..] lol, I am curious. the “speed-up ratio” you demonstrate is 3:2 (3 notes in the space where 2 were), whereas everything metric has a ratio of 10:1

  34. [..YouTube..] Lol well, it has nothing to do with the ratio, it’s based on “meter” as in the the musical version of it. So, metric referring to your meter, modulated. 😛

    That set is sick! I could never afford that! I hope to have something like that as I get better at drums.

    Awesome educational video on so many levels!
    Curious what software you are using for the video production especially curious about the real time transcriptions. looks great!

    If Im playing a 3/4 polyrhthym between my ride and left foot, and I switch the backbeat between the two, is that considered metric modulation? In other words, I begin in straight 4/4, then begin playing the polyrhythm on the ride while at first keeping the backbeat on 2 and 4 of the original pulse… but after 2 bars I modulate the backbeat to match what I’m playing on the ride (speeding up the rhythm) then switching back to the original after a couple bars.
