This month we’re looking at the subject of speed, and more specifically how to achieve it. Of course, speed is all relative. What actually determines ‘fast’ will depend on your goals and ability as a player already. For many, the stumbling point of speed happens when your brain wants to play something that your hands can’t physically manage. “I’m not interested in playing blistering chops though” we hear you cry. Well, it doesn’t just have to be about developing speed for speed’s sake. Working on the basic agility of your hands and feet will help you execute ideas in regular areas of your playing too, and the inherent benefits of practising speed-based exercises will also benefit accuracy, timing, and (if you allow) dynamics. So, if you’re struggling to play fills…

nirvana reunite!

“Grohl sat behind his Laser Blue Jazz Series kit, stripped back to his classic Nirvana four-piece configuration with an equally simplistic Zildjian setup of hi-hats, two crashes and a ride” The remaining members of Nirvana have performed the band’s music for only the second time since Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994. The band - Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and In Utero-era touring guitarist/Foo Fighter, Pat Smear - reunited at Foo Fighters’ second Cal Jam festival on 6 October, joined by Joan Jett and Deer Tick’s John McCauley taking the place of the late Cobain. The line-up last performed together in 2014 when Nirvana was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, choosing Joan Jett, St Vincent (Annie Clark), Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and Lorde to front the band. The same…

mcclain quits machine head

Dave McClain is stepping away from Machine Head after 22 years with the California metal icons Guitarist Phil Demmel is also leaving, while the long-term future of the band remains in doubt. In a Facebook Live video, frontman Robb Flynn explained the upheaval, also stating that bass player Jared MacEachern had also, temporarily, quit the band. Flynn said: “I’ll get right to it. Wednesday night, Phil Demmel quit Machine Head. Yesterday afternoon, Dave McClain quit Machine Head. And Jared kinda quit but didn’t know if he was quitting for sure.” The frontman went on to offer an explanation for McClain and Demmel’s departures, adding: “We have grown apart as people. Musically, we have grown apart. I have held on too tight to the reins of this band and I have suffocated those guys. I’ve…

Why did the band go for a heavier sound on Vector? “It was a conscious decision even before we wrote any music. It seems like most of the band was quite keen to make a heavier album. Maybe it’s just because we wanted to access more of a metal audience.” How did you get your drum sound? “We were helped by getting Adam ‘Nolly’ Getgood involved. He’s a bit of a leader in the modern metal sound – the way he produces drums in particular. To be quite honest, Adam had such an impact, it was really nice to have someone outside of the band with an approach and an idea in mind for the sound that he wanted. I used a new kit I just received from Natal before doing the album. The…

SABIAN QUIET TONES From £205 There was a time when the only way a drummer could practise without breaching the peace was to take their sticks to a pad or pillow, invest in a pricey e-kit or cover their drums and cymbals with horrible rubber pads. With the latter, all feel was lost and any tone reduced to a dull thud. Thankfully, times have changed and there are plenty of neighbour-friendly quiet practice solutions to choose from. Take Sabian’s new Quiet Tone practice cymbals, for example. Each shimmering silver cymbal features hundreds of tiny holes across its surface, helping reduce the overall volume without drastically altering the tone. From the edge to the bell, crashes and rides deliver an abundance of wash and ping, whilst hats can be played tightly shut, wide…
