Hating on Ringo: The quickest way to demonstrate that you know exactly ZERO about being a drummer.

Ringo did this little thing that people who worship prog-rock masturbators behind 90-piece ego-machine kits will never understand: He played for the song, as opposed to for himself. He had an innate sense of knowing what precisely what a song needed, and then responding BY PLAYING EXACTLY THAT. He understood that the guitars and vocals are "lead" parts, and that bass and drums are "rhythm" parts. So he didn't overplay. He played nothing but what the arrangements asked for, and he did it skillfully and tastefully.

Not to mention - if you put a metronome next to the man? The machine will drop tempo before HE does. Fact.

I agree with this. Plus he had an odd kind of backbeat he'd use on his small rolls/fills. Not sure if there is a name for it, but it was unique to him. Though when it comes to comparing subtle drummers to metronomes I'll throw Charlie Watts' hat in that ring as well.

Re: Ringo

Buddy Rich called him adequate. That's pretty high praise for Buddy when talking about a rock drummer (of whom he had pretty much universal disdain).

Listen to Rain or Glass Onion - some really nice subtle work around the beat.


Re: this kid. Doesn't seem like he's had any formal training, but his natural ability is evident. He'd benefit from lessons and practice and a wider musical palette.  Not bad for his age though.

Also, he did this in the age before stage monitors, so he couldn't even HEAR what his bandmates were doing. Well, in the latter part of their touring career, anyway. Imagine being at Shea and not being able to hear a single goddam note for all the screaming.

I thought Ringo's rolls were different because he's left handed. Read that years ago, haven't ever bothered to verify.

So because I find basic metronome beats boring, I must only listen to metal?
Nice try. I don't listen to that band either.

There once was a man from Nantucket
Whose dick was so long he could suck it
He said with a grin as he wiped off his chin
If my ear were a twat I would fark it

/wait

2012-09-27 10:22:53 PM
Sure, playing a steady beat in time so that you enhance the overall sound of the song and do not overwhelm it is critical for any drummer to be good.

But it's the sign of a drumming God when he can do just that, but then unleash an evocative, unique stream of musical expression that complements the song.

So Ringo's a very good drummer. But he's no God.

The kid's spatial coordination is slow, but I'm sure will improve with time. I started drum set at twelve and used to hold match grip like him when I started. Then I went to North Texas and learned all about the Sanford Moeller grip. Changed me forever. Ed Soph was a hard ass, but he taught me to play melodically, rather than have me become, as he would say, "just a beat drummer". Good luck Kiddo.

That's the hallmark of a good musician, regardless of what instrument you play, IMO. I've watched Ringo play, and the man knows his stuff. I'm sure that if he wanted to, he could no doubt break into some impressive masterbatory drum solo, but that's not his thing. He has class.

This is why if I had a kid... and even they could play the drums like Gene Krupa, the guitar like Charlie Hunter, the bass like Jaco Pastorius, and the piano like Michel Petrucciani, I would never post anything to YouTube or anywhere else. Instead of giving an obviously talented 10 year old kid a little encouragement, there's always some know-it-all (who really doesn't) douchenozzle tearing them down.

The first 2 minutes of this clip is Brad Paisley at the age of 12.

And this is Brad Paisley now.

I know a couple of legendary studio musicians. I'm willing to bet if I sent them a link to this kid's video, both of them would only have good things to say.

He's already remarkable for a kid his age, and as he matures a little, he will get much better. I'm betting that by the time he hits high school, he'll be a monster.
