Add to EJ Playlist Yes-the Ludwig Supralite snare drums have been around for a little while, but here is my take on one if you're interested.
*I am in no way in kahootz with the Ludwig drum company BTW.

Add to EJ Playlist COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN FREAKING LATER IN THE VIDEO
Here is progress of my left hand, that I've ben trying to beat (nyuk, nyuk) in to shape.
Also, I'm just about to record a collection of songs with my famous go-to engineer voted Best in Chicago (Albini came in 2nd-swear to God).
Finally, a Satya Graha (a defunct Chicago band) song that I performed on (I refer to it in this video) is on the internet somehere-the song is called WILD THYME.
Thank you for watching my videos-I have fun making them.
Add to EJ Playlist In this video I show 4 of the 5 key mic placement locations that are essential in achieving a true 'John Bonham Drum kit sound'. The mic locations can be seen via their perspectives at various times in the video. 'Phase cancellation' is something to bear in mind when recording drums in this fashion, but there are techniques (and good engineers) that will overcome any of those problems.
It is very important to bear in mind the value of very high quality microphones, preamps, compressors, equalizers, etc., in achieving a high quality drum sound. The mic on the camera I used in this video did a pretty good job of capturing the rough mojo of the art of a live drum sound.
And a big thank you to FRANKLIN for allowing me to use his front room with nice reflective oak floors and a nice 9 foot high ceiling.
Remember, you don't need too big a room-just one that has a natural live presence to it.
*The fifth placement I left out is the mic location under the snare drum. As it's a very common mic placement location, I excluded it for the purposes of this video.

Add to EJ Playlist September 1, 2015 is the day of truth for my Shakes-The-Clow n Left Hand.
I was making a Click Track video, went into a left-hand tangent and decided to take the plunge into manning-up and go full blast on bringing my left hand up to par!
*I post this so officially I can use this public document for my ego to force me to practice consistently. Otherwise I may 'ADD out'/weasel out.
So , can I increase the skill in 90 days?
Are the 'benign essential' tremor left hand a true impediment to increasing its skill?
Can I get my singles up to 840bpm confortably?
Might my left hand strangle me in the night?
Film at 11 (on September 1, 2015 that is)!

The PST 5 CRASH/RIDE I used in the above video is actually relatively 'Sewer Cappy' (I say relatively), so in this one I put up :
- an 18" 1981-ish 505 CRASH
- 18" PST 5 THIN CRASH (model discontinued)
- 18" PST 7 THIN CRASH (Fresh out of the plastic bag)
At the end of the video is my progress on the "Rock Steady" drumbeat.

Add to EJ Playlist This John Bonham PATENTED 1968 drum fill is from the upper echelon of BONHAM DRUMFILLDOM.
It's a the first cousin of the ALTERNATING TRIPLET (see my video https://www.you tube.com/watch? v=C9sfpXrNtz0).
It's heard often in live Dazed & Confused renditions (the 3 note version usually) and most famously in a 6 note version in YOU SHOOK ME from the filmed Royal Albert Hall show from 1970.
Add to EJ Playlist *Or right hand leading; it depends on what hand you lead your TWO HAND ONE FOOT drumset triplets.
Accenting the leading hand will greatly assist in nailing the early Bonham Triplet sound & feel. It really adds to the flavor of the drum riff.

Add to EJ Playlist I will from time to time clean a B20 alloy crsah cymbal (A Zildjian, K Zildjian, Sabian Paiste FO602, Bosphorus, Crescent, Istanbul, etc.) if the there is a buildup of gunk (dirt, grime, oils, greenish oxidation) toward the edge of it. A heavier buildup does very much mute the full effect of the crash sustain of the cymbal.
In this video I use a brush as well-which I pretty much never do, but I think the Barkeeper's Friend I had on hand was quite old and maybe not as virile.
Muting can positively affect the sound of a ride cymbal if the buildup is providing a muting of undesirable overtones.
I've heard many times where a jazz drummer loves his ride, but wants to give it a cleaning, and the subsequent cleaning alters the highly desired, once drier & smoky tone into a wetter, overtone-y 80's A. Zildjian horror.. So use your best judgement!
In the case of the 17" A Zildjian in this video, the significant buildup of gunk on the edge (both underside and top) was very negatively affecting the cymbal's crash potential by pretty severely killing the shimmery crash overhang; the full, clean crash tone was muted.
At the end of the video I alternate between the pre-clean and the clean (in that order), so you can hear the difference between the two. As the loop goes, it becomes clear that the cleaned cymbal has a very superior, fuller crash sound.
BTW: *DON'T EVER USE THIS ON ANYTHING OTHER THAN B20 ALLOY. If I ever do clean a B8 alloy cymbal (which is usually never), I will use the Paiste cymbal cleaner as it works like a charm, and doesn't discolor/damage the B8 alloy cymbal.
Add to EJ Playlist Made very popular by Led Zeppelin's French TV appearance in 1969; a one-handed drumset triplet figure around the drumkit whilst twirling the stick in the dominanat hand.
BTW: Bonham I think only does it briefly in the part of the song I demonstrate it here in the TOUS EN SCENE soundcheck at the 2:09 minute mark here in this video:

Add to EJ Playlist The other Fool In The Rain videos I have were recorded with my old camera (and bad 'old sound').
Here is a revised lesson with my newer camera with better sound. *Better-not great-but definitely better than before.
I also went back and watched my older FITR videos, and I found myself cringing often at my oft-choppy performance of it!
I've realized, that, for me, playing a heel-down hi hat gives me better control of then groove overall.
You may or may not find that a 'heel-down' hi-hat method cleans up your FITR groove, but it makes mine smoother compared to my heel-up rendition!
In any case I hope this video is helpful.
Thank you for watching!
