Several months ago there were back to back practice pad’s with suggested double kick/crash fills, all 16th notes going between snare & kick/crash. Anyone know which months they were in so I don’t have to look through a large stack of old mags?

I’m working on a new song that I think they would go great in. I can remember a few, some fit & some don’t. I’d love to review what was there more more ideas. They might have been submitted by Matt Byrne.

The closest thing I could find was Matt Byrne’s lesson in the December 2009 issue, although it doesn’t exactly match your description.

Thanks for checking. It actually was from even longer ago. June 2009 & July 2009 had back to back practice pads for fills. June was straight sixteenth note fills. July mixed in 16th note triplets & 32rd notes. July fills were too many notes for the tempo of the song. I worked on the June ones, than came up with some of my own ideas. I was able to incorporate them into the song right away.

I’m glad I don’t throw away old Drum mags. I just need to keep them organized instead of scattered around the basement, bedroom, car, office….

That could be a new thread, what do you do with old mags?

It’s cool to see that other drummers out there collect their back issues od “DRUM!”, as well.
I’ve said this many times b/f, & Andy & Staff were kind enough to publish 2 of my “Feedback” letters in which I stated that “DRUM!”, to me, is a continuing encyclopedia of drumming—not just a monthly magazine. That is why I have all of my issues, from the 1st issue that I bought in 2000 (& quickly subscribed after that) to the most recent. I keep them in ‘clamshell’ boxes w/ the “DRUM!” logo embossed in gold on the binding. Each box can fit @ least 1 year’s worth of issues. They can be ordered & there is usually an ad for them in the last few pages of each issue. When I ordered them, I bought 15 all @ once. It’s an excellent way to catalog your issues. On the binding of each box sleeve there’s a place to write the years & issue #‘s that each contain. This way, I can display them in a presentable manner, as well as (most importantly) access whatever interview, lesson, gear review, drum diagram, song transcription, or any other piece(s) of information that I might need @ the time. & as a teacher it REALLY comes in handy!
My back issues of “DRUM!” & the other drumming publications that I subscribe to are priceless to me & anyone who knows me knows that I consider them to be of my most prized possesions! They’re forever useful, always educational & helpful in my drumming progress, & many are IRREPLACEABLE!!! That makes them all the more precious to me!
Thanks for posting,
