One of my favorite songs to jam along to is "Time Ed" by moe. off of the live album Warts & All IV. It has a fun beat that changes around a bit so it keeps you busy and then a good solo to play around with.
>>53328490 Another one of my favorite drummers who does a lot of cool complex stuff too is Stanton Moore of the bands Galactic and Stanton Moore Trio. He has lots of tutorials and how-to stuff also which might be good for that. Lots of stuff with him on YouTube otherwise he has this teaching DVD called "Groove Alchemy"
>>53328562 Idk why you would say not to do that... Danny Carey is incredible to watch... Unless maybe you tink Tool wouldn't be the best for his kid haha. Danny Carey definitely got me into drumming even though I don't really like hard rock/metal.
Oh absolutely. That's why we did the School of Rock, he got to play all kinds of instruments and decided he liked drums best. We've got him set up for a private lesson to see if that's really his ideal thing, and after that, we'll go from there.
I'm definitely one of those encouraging parents, not a discouraging one.
>>53328674 Danny Carey isn't as good as people make him out to be I mean if the kids like it, cool, but there's so much more to learn from these literally masters of drum set. Watch a side by side comparison of DC and any gospel drummers, of all ages, and see how even high school kids smack him around rhythmically, musically, and chop wise.
>>53328742 Haha until you realize how loud the drums are. It's good that you got him in lessons though. I took lessons like the first year and a half that I played and I'm so glad I did. It got me to learn the basics and kept me interested for those first few months when I didn't really know what I was doing.
>>53328771 I kinda agree. It's mostly the weird timing and the beats he uses with that timing. But that big bronze drum kit and the solo from 46 & 2 definitely helped to make me a drummer instead of a guitarist. That's why Stanton Moore is probably my favorite now. I like those guys that are more musical and don't need a giant kit with 20 cymbals to make an interesting and complex rhythm.
>>53328917 Gospel drumming has all the complex timing and then some. Filling up space with some pretty out there rhythmic interpretation and implied tempos and back beats etc. you should give it all a listen. It's not as obvious as it is in music like meshuggah and tool and stuff
Here's the mute pads. Like $70 from Musicians Friend to fit a basic 5 piece set. Will definitely prevent some headaches for you while your kid plays and they are really easy to take on and off the drums.
>>53329044 Very cool, thanks. I'll look into them. >>53329063 Yeah, electric is good for messing around, but I think ideally when learning to play, you really need to get a feel for the real thing, I was just curious how others felt about them.
>>53329063 Exactly what I'm saying. Electric drums are only if you absolutely need them, like living in an apartment with asshole neighbors or something and even then you would probably have the acoustic set in storage for gigs and stuff.
Another point for starting out on drums- Like any other instrument, don't buy the cheapest stuff you can find. A beginner set from a good company like a Pearl Export or Tama Rockstar is the way to go. Same with cymbals, go with the beginner lever Paiste, Zildjian, or Sabian.
If you're tight on money, you can always buy second-hand too. Lots of people buy drums and get bored after a few months and sell them on Craigslist, pawn shops, or music shops.
If you buy a $200 drum kit from walmart or toys r us, your son won't have nearly as much fun as a real setup. Plus you can upgrade piece by piece as far as cymbals, snares, etc. A $600 Pearl or Tama will also come with decent hardware that isn't going to break the minute the kid starts beating on the drums.
