Invisible Man

For you guys that are wondering about
how and even whether Virgil is controlling
a bounce on his kicks, look at this video
and very closely.

He experiments. You can tell.

In the very beginning (highlights), you can
see him try the triplets double-stroked,
before opting to go singles on it.

Just from this video, you can get ideas
of how to arrange routines between the
doubles and singles and doubles straight
or with triplet feel in 4 or 7 and all at
200bpm.

Awesome instruct, Virgil!

You know what Peter? - I noticed it too!

I also liked when Mark came in and said that he should try something else on the transitions. You can see Virgil's brain thinking by looking at his face!

It's so awesome!

You're right, Boot!

I am working on this tune now and am trying
the different approaches to the section.

I think this section can be interpreted differently
and that is what Virg had that in mind, when he
suggested for us to work on it!

I'm trying the triplet section, feeling 4's, 6's and
12's. I'm finding that the more I try to do with it,
the harder it is to keep those doubles at a smooth
200bpm clip. This is definitely bringing out the
inconsistencies in my playing, for sure.

One thing that I am going to be doing more of is
concentrating on getting a little more height on
my legs and more power into my double-strokes
for beat-separation. I have also slid the Power-
Shifter back to the middle for more power, having
had it all the way in for response.

Also, I will be spending more time on the single-
stroke 16th to 16th-note triplets exercise and
emphasizing the transitions.

I find that my biggest problem has to do with the
transitions from doubles to singles and then back
again. I'm going to be really spending a LOT of
time on Invisible Man.

Thank you, Yirgil!

OK. Today, I lightened up and this seems to
always be the key for me, the first tries at a
tune, I seem to be over it, too much. When I
really sit back and listen, counting, that's when
it comes together for me.

I'll be ready for a take this week, I think. You
guys are likely onto everything else, I know.
It takes me a while to get this stuff. It's a
whole new world, from where I am coming
from. You have to understand.
