There you go! They can be heard on "Shift" and that Munchen gig. In Osaka I played cymbals provided by the promotor. / Anders
Visste du om att Genocide Superstars-låten "Stairsweeper" är med i Viva La Bam säsong 3, avsnitt 8? Lite lustigt att just den låten dök upp mot slutet.
Tänkte bara höra om du kommer sälja Vinylen av "Till vilket pris som helst"??
Den ska väl komma nu i veckan vad jag förstått!?
Now that thats out of the way.... i'm asking because you said that you had to get back into straight 16th for deathmetal in Coldworker, and I can play quick footwork with the bass, but just not 16ths. The answer I commonly get to this is just "practice a LOT, very slowly". And that doesn't always work out just right as my feet pretty much sporadicaly twitch and speed up at just about whatever tempo. Any ideas? I'm going crazy over this.
I recognise the sort of flaws you described: feets twitching and problems having the beats even in the same tempo. It's very frustrating.
The obvious solution is to practise as much as you can. I'm not into the "practise very slow" idea because you don't learn double bass to play slow. If it's slower than what you can accomplish with only one feet then what's the point? I think the thing is to find a tempo that feels nice and that you are comfortable playing and then practise in that tempo.
For me it was much easier to play double bass in 6/8 than in 4/4, so that's maybe something you can try aswell.
When I started to focus on really learning double bass I started practising at home by just putting a pillow on the floor and sit on a normal chair doing double bass motions with the legs to any sort of music. My girlfriend thought it was weird but I believe it helped.
Then it's just a matter of practising it on the drums. For me it's always easier to play to a good riff than just play a beat by yourself. So get a tolerant member of you band to play along!
When it comes to the heel up/down problem, I don't really know what to say. I think your body will tell you what technique suits you the best and then just go with it. I've recognised when I've studied myself during rehearsals that I tend to alter a lot between the techniques. I can actually say that at one point one feet was heel down and the other heel up so I guess my body is working on that.
Here is a great "foot technique 101" from Derek Roddy's forum. There's a lot of interesting things to read here along with some cool video clips. Have a look, get inspired and get going with the drums! Good luck! / Anders
Bara undrar om ni någonsin spelade "Bullshit Tradition" live? Och ifall det finns nånting i form av ljudklipp eller filmklipp av den live någonstans ? Ifall ni gjort det någon gång, spelade ni den snabbare än vanligt då eller som vanligt? bara kul o veta :)
Det finns två liveupptagningar av låten att lyssna på i de livekonserter jag nyligen lagt upp på Audio/Video-sidan. / Anders
This question is directed to Anders. Do you play with metronome? What's the speed you usualy play blast beats and "skank" beats (if not the same)?
Crazy, isn't it? ;)
Thanks for the link, I hadn't thought of YouTube as an source for Nasum clips. / Anders
