Sunday Jam News Below – Drummers: Jam at The Jazz Station_124 W. Broadway – Eugene OR

11 May

    On Sundays from 4 to 7PM – Host Drummer Kenny Reed

Here is your chance to apply what you have practiced, but remember you are in performance in front of an audience, so this is not practice.  Listening is the key, and I mean Listen to the other musicians first and foremost, and that will make you a better musician.  You are all One!  Enjoy! 

NOTE:  Your timing lock is on the 1 and 3 in 4/4 time.  Your groove lock is on 2 and 4.  So, 1 and 3 is penultimate practice scheme!

    Basically yes! It gets more complex in odd time signatures, and Polyrhythms. Keyword “Drumming Books, Polyrhythms” online. There is a wealth of Information available. Also, listen and read about Max Roach, a master jazz drummer. He was into very complex time signatures and polyrhythms.

    So this mean the lock is on the Downbeat no matter what time signature, or jusst 4/4?
