    The Art Of Drumming

    I only really like drum solos if they swing, that limits it pretty much to Joe Morello IMHO...

    Headphones

    Cool, @PaulWarning beat me to it with these... Sennheiser recommendations. At sub £100 I don’t think you can beat Sennheiser.

    How do you play reggae?

    I’m liking them! I should respond with a recommendation too, Samsara from Brighton, great reggae with a kind of subtle Klezmer overtone sometimes, why this band aren’t huge escapes me...

    How do you play reggae?

    As well as 'smoking quantity' play along with the bass from the 2nd and 3rd Linton Kwesi Johnson albums, Forces of Victory and Bass Culture. When you are just listening the bass lines sound simple but when you try and play along it's quite difficult and you realise there is something quite fundamentally different going on to what you're used to playing. I am not a good enough theorist to analyse and decipher the differences but I've found that after a while of playing along with these tracks you somehow just switch into the groove and it becomes easy to follow. I've listened to a lot of reggae and dub over the last forty years and I think these two albums a perfect exemplars to get into that reggae mindset, simple but beautiful.
