I put 50 AUD on a secondhand Dixon PP9290D double kicker. I'm picking it up on tuesday, altogether it's 190 AUD. Awesome deal.

Next, instruct students that blues musicians use the backbeat in a common blues rhythm known as a "shuffle beat." Have them experience the sound of the shuffle beat by tapping out four even beats in 4/4 time with the right hand and add a "pre-beat" tap in the left hand just before each beat in the right. This pre-beat can be thought of as the "and" in "and one, and two, and three, and four." After a steady rhythm has been established, students should attempt to emphasize the backbeat by tapping louder with the right hand on beats two and four. This type of shuffle beat that emphasizes the backbeat is a Chicago shuffle. For students able to establish a steady pattern with both hands, they can try adding on a steady four taps of the right foot on the floor while everything else is still going on. Discuss with students why this rhythm is known as a shuffle beat.

Preffered Sticks

I just thought I'd share with you all...
I break them Fuckin vic Firth sticks by the barrel load.
For the last 6 months I have been using these Zidjan signature series sticks.
They're the Trilock Gertu model. I love these things man. They last longer for me than any other stick I've used, and they're a good weight.
Give 'em a shot.

Zildjians are softer than Vic Firths generally, so they don't break as much. I know a jazz lady who breaks Zildjians and other sticks like Vic Firth and Pro Mark but she found some weird brand underground sticks with a very hard wood, I need to get a pair because they have some very interesting shapes that sit in the palm of the hand and help deliver more power.

Well, when you find out what kind they are,let me know. I;'ll try them out.
Like I said, I'm super happy with the Trilock Gertu sticks, be just out of curiousity I ordered 2 pairs of the Vic Firth F1 Flo (Cryptopsy) Sig sticks.
We'll see.
But like I said, let me know what kind they are.

Vic Firth used to make a stick with some weird red material and the stick was like a pinkish red wood (not staind either or those dark red ones). I dont remember the name of the material but they are super light, really nice for jazz music. There is a place here that used to still sell them but they are probably out of them now and Vic Firth doesn't make them anymore someone told me. Anyone know what I am talking about, if I hear the name I may know.

Sorry, can't help you.
I know that I;'m getting into a new topic here, but this is a multi topic thread...
I am thinking about triggering my bass drum.
What's involved? I know I'll need a trigger thing, but what else? I have a soundboard and PA equipment already, so can I use that or do I need a processor?
Help would be appreciated.
Thanks

You definately need a Module (thats the thing what makes the sound, not your PA).
And then it depends how much you spend for it, how good your sound`ll be.
IŽd try different modules out, before I going to buy one.

You can connect the trigger directly to the PA but all you will get is a click. Not a good bass click either. I would get some inexpensive module and a few triggers( since they all have more than one input) and just put them on all your drums so you can get cool sounds if you need to.

Also, dont buy triggers. You can go to radioshack and buy piezo discs and use those, thats all the triggers are, although you may have some problems connecting them.

Right on.
So do you guys have any examples of a "Cheap Module"?
I mean, I want to trigger my Bass exclusively, so I don't need some whaling friggin thing with a million sounds to choose from.
Throw out some name brands for me to look into.
Thanks

Alesis and Roland have some fairly inexpensive modules, and they all have more than one input.

Roland TD3

Alesis DM5

These are under 500, you can get some really nice ones, some with synths built in, for about a thousand.

Today was one of the best drum practices I have ever done, I was nailing shit that I can very rarely nail, coming up with some really cool sounding stuff, and have started learning how to do the stick spin where you go up and down your fingers (I just need to get it round my little finger and up to finish that off) so yeah today was a good day to practice

I noticed that I get things a lot better by ear or when someone explains a groove than from tab or sheet paper. It was always like that for me with other instruments (except keyboards), so I get awesome practices when I listen to things and not read them off paper.

Long double kicker journey, my teacher has a nice, smooth set, one half is a DW 5000 and the other one is some other brand but still smooth, but my own is better in a few ways. My hi hats just don't fit in with the double kickers, my teacher has a different preference set-up, his hi hats are more important to him than the pedal, and it's reverse for me, so I have a lot to work out. I don't understand how to loosen some of the springs on it, IT'S SHIT. I'm doing that tonight.
