Ask Dave #2

Posted on February 12, 2008

Following on from our earlier news story about your 10 questions we put to Dave McClain of Machine Head (& his answers), as promised here are a couple more… How long have you been playing drums, and what rudiments and techniques helped you the most? Mortimer. “I’ve been playing drums for over 25 years!! Paradiddles are a great rudiment to mess around with because there are so many variations and ways to incorporate them on the drumset. Lately I’ve been teaching myself to play double stroke rolls on the kicks.” Just to clarify and put a long-standing debate (on the Frontlines) to rest, exactly how many t-shirts do you own? DevyMetal “I own two shirts now. I retired my metal shirt, got tired of dry cleaning it.” more to come…
