Not bad. The onyl things I'd say are work on slices (both hands, especially during rolls), and diddle quality.

Also, head over to the Transcription Library in the General forum to get my transcription of the entire book.

The slice isn't took bad. Good enough for Bluecoats :D

Anyway, it doesn't look like a hard fix, just go back to playing eights for a bit and focus on really making the sticks straight.

picture a nude picture of *insert fantasy chick here* on the top of your right hand, make sure you can see it at all times

for your left youre gonna have to put your right stick vertical to the pad, and just play lefts all day long and not hit the stick, then do doubles with your left and not hit the stick etc.

It's a Finals transcription. There's a small error toward the end, right before the part from GB09, but I don't feel like changing it :D

Also, there's an error in the opener transcription, too, but again, too lazy to change it.

anybody else have any advice for me? im looking for any advice i can get as quick as i can get it so i can fix anything before auditions.

madchops...with the right hand, i wanna make sure i have this right...i need to turn my hand over more so the top of my hand is facing the sky, also, will it help if i keep my arm/elbow slightly furthar away from my body?

and with the left, ive been working on it (eights) slowly...but im not sure what you mean putting the stick vertical to the pad?

thanks

yea the only problem is the slicing. here is the basic way of fixing slice. get in set position and turn your body to where one of the sticks is perpendicular to the mirror. play eights or something and make sure it goes straight up and down. now play some book/ licks and make adjustments as you play to fix the slice. do the same to other hand. it really helps and increases your sound quality like crazy.

Thanks, im hoping to go somewhere and pick up a mirror for the wall where i usually practice on my pad in front of...

i dont know...i guess im overly critical of myself and expected more stuff wrong than what was said about the slicing, i always think im doing something wrong and i always see other people play and think theyre much better than i am even if i can play what theyre playing...wierd

ok fine. being a little more critical now. on big rolls and stuff, your beads tend to drift away from each other so your not always perfectly in the center of the head. on more choppier stuff, you A/T goes away sometimes. fix your slice then we'll see whats next cause thats the main problem. and next timecould you zoom out a lil more so we can have a better POV please?

from what i can tell, if you have any sound quality issues then it should be fixed by fixing that slice. post another vid after youre done fixing the slice and we'll be happy to give more feedback.

and also try playing other styles of music like BD/ RCC choppy stuff to see what you can do.

Thanks, Ill keep note of the placement of the bead during big stuff. also, im not sure what you mean by "A/T"


btw, Im asking for constructive critisim b/c i want to become the best I can be...so i dont mind at all for people to just open up and tell me whats wrong, its better to learn now and fix it before auditions then to learn at auditions.

A/T = accent to tap. so basically your tap and accent heights. but you usually start with the biggest problems then start refining. cause when you teach somebody, you dont spit everything out all at once or they will have a hard time fixing everything at once. but if you give them one issue at a time, then they can focus on that one problem and get it dont then move on to the next one instead of multi-fixing all the problems at once. know what i mean?

thanks...im assuming when your talking about losing my A/T your reffering more to my left hand? b/c i noticed that when i watched my video more was that my left hand accents werent the same height as my right hand accents occasionally...but yea...i understand what your saying about learning one thing at a time...ive been working on the slicing from the second someone on here brought it to my attention and was just looking for more advice so when the slicing was fixed i could immediatly work on the next thing to better myself.

also, i do have a bunch of music i havent gotten around to learning yet(from BD,Crown,SCV,RCC,Cavaliers,Rhythm X...etc) and currently i started working on a ram that i found on the forums so when its worthy ill put up a video...hopefully mon or tue night depending on how much practice time i get in.

by vertical stick, i mean literally hold your stick to make a 90 degree angle with the pad, and just play lefts and dont hit the stick
