We will miss Lou Reed. Lou was and still is such an inspiration and influence for so many artists. His legacy is massive. I was able to dig out this Velvet Underground cover we played from the Changing Modes video archives. The gig was from 2012 at Arlene’s Grocery in the East Village. For better or for worse the band let me sing lead on this one :)
Just a short Moeller exercise based off the Moeller triplet (Down, Up, Tap) that will help with moving the accents to each note of the triplet. Pay close attention to the Moeller strokes listed above the notes and watch the video demonstration above!
One of the ways we can produce a double stroke roll :RRLLRRLL: is by using the Moeller Technique. To get the double stroke using Moeller you simply play a downstroke followed by an upstroke with the same hand. The video above demonstrates what that looks like.
If your just starting out on the drums the Moeller technique is a good technique to learn, and it can be applied to so many rudiments. The double stroke (also called the long roll) is one of the most important rudiments because it is the building block of so many other rudiments.
