  200. [..YouTube..] Thanks! It’s all personal preference man, I like my cymbals weird, I’m actually picking up a more normal set for certain things from Hammerax in a couple weeks. I’m a full Hammerax endorser because I like things that are strange. I’ve just honestly never been into normal cymbals. They do absolutely nothing for me.

    But hey! If we all liked the same stuff, we’d all sound the same and music would be expressionless and boring 🙂 So it’s actually awesome you’re not into my cymbals

    Great vid,simple,informative,basic yet advanced.Good drummers are the heart of every song.Bass is the balls,vocals are the cake,and guitar and leads are the icing.

    This tutorial is the best I’ve seen on time signatures in general. Drum, guitar, dig…

  223. aaronedgardrum says:

    Hells yeah man! 🙂 Thank you

  224. aaronedgardrum says:

    No prob! Thank you 🙂

  225. aaronedgardrum says:

    Awesome! Thanks man 🙂 It was my first actual lesson video I ever made

  226. skittlez5706 says:

    i now understand the time signatures but i dont understand how during the 4/4 and 3/4 faster examples, you even managed to count those at the same beat. Did you just speed up the tempo you were saying 1,2,3,4 super fast in your head or what?

  227. esmod89 says:

    When counting to seven I learned from Mike Portnoy to count like this:

    One Two Three Four Five Six Sev

    Reason is, when counting sixteens in 7/4 you want to count 7e&a and saying ‘Seven e and a’ would make either a quintuplet or a 29/16 bar (instead of 28/16).

    Hopefully this is helpful for someone!

    Listen to rx bandits, the time signatures are strange
