Rudiments are one of the most important building blocks modern drumming. applying the rudiments on your drum kit will enable whole new levels of creativity. and Virtually every rudiment can be applied in dozens of unique ways around even the smallest of drum sets. To think they are useless is to imply the drum set is totally obsolete! 每次演奏一定要注入自己的靈魂,加入自己的東西這樣我們每次演譯都不 會一模一樣令我們可以忠於原著及有自已獨一無二的風格。這樣才可以令 人百聽不厭。因真正動人的不 單是準確性,重要的還要注入感情。 很多鼓手錯誤地認為我的技術是來自長時間的不斷練習,但事實是我會用 極多時間去思 巧鼓的藝術及 反覆研究所有世界級的鼓手及他們的音樂  很多認識我的人都知道,音樂對我是與生俱來的,因在我的成長環境中是 不可能有鼓給我練 的,但我通常會在腦海中自然就會聽見。對你們來說 這可能是也可能不是 但我可以告訴你們  確實有天賜這回事. 不要否定它的存在。現在的我仍然努力不懈的尋求更多更多的音樂知識音 樂是無止境的是樂趣無窮的是可以不斷地進步的只要你不放棄。最後, 你要問自己的並不是自己是否有天份而是有沒有對打鼓的渴求 節奏的 愛和激情及尋求最佳的指導和訓練令夢想成為事實。 I truly believe All Great Drummers share these four major fundamentals that you all should know. 1: Excellent Technique 2: Strong Grooves 3: Fluid Creativity 4: Superior Musicianship 我的確相信, 所有偉大的鼓手都應該擁 有四大基本條件,很多人 都不知道是什麼?這是你們 應該知道的。 Designed by: JKD ©Copyright 2010.ChynaProductions Co, Ltd.

Rudiments are the foundation upon which Drummers can build sticking co-ordination speed, touch and sensitivity, and a vocabulary that is essential in speaking the Language of Drumming. In 2003 Don had torn both sides of his shoulder tendons torn through daily constant martial arts training / gym / touring /and In-sufficient rest and was told that if he were not to recover within a two year period he would surely never be able to play the drums ever again.. Thus this became the worst two years of my life, Depression Insomnia and nothing but pain running through my body 24/7, I needed to Rest and Recuperate under the special care from one of the Best Chiropractors in Asia.- Dr: Lu Chak Keung
Developing each of these characteristics is essential because they all work together when playing at the highest level. You got to have a perfect time and understanding of songs in order to be a contender. 以上每一項的發展都是必須的, 因為在最高水平的演奏中,它們 會全部一起發揮作用。你必須有 完美的準確性, 同時對歌曲完全了解,才有機會 勝任。. The development of your groove and musicianship must never be overlooked in the pursuit of the more tantalising skills. 在追求更吸引的技巧時, 你們千萬不可忽略節奏感和音樂 造詣的發展。 Focus on Groove and Musicianship, for this instrument is too complicated to be successful at without a certain level of technical control. 你要把注意力集中於節奏感和音 樂造詣,因為這樂器非常複雜如 果沒有一定的技術控制水平是不 可能成功的。 Quality  it's not how fast you can play  your notes but more of how great in detail the notes are which makes the essence of quality, otherwise you're going to regret it at a later stage and have to start cleaning those notes from scratch. if you're not enjoying it? then you're doing it totally wrong and you know it! What not to do! If you are on stage to prove how great you are,the music suffers because you’re too busy showing off to lay down the foundation that makes the song flow. I’ve seen so many drummers play so inappropriately that the horn players will turn around and glare at them on stage. They usually don’t notice they’re too wrapped up in how amazing they are until they get fired. The music is not all about you, but you should be all about the music. That way you’re respecting it and those who play it with you. 不可為之事!假若你身處舞台上想證明你的技巧有多麼的超卓,正忙著表現自 己,試圖把樂曲的旋律得以流暢,這樣樂曲便變得生硬乏味,亦將音樂變糟了 。我曾遇見一些鼓手在樂團的表演中因過份表現自己的技巧而顯得格格不入, 引致其他團員給他即時光,亦因為那鼓手太投入自己的表演而忽略了團隊精神 終有一天他將因此而被解散。音樂不會只因你而完美,而你應為完美的音符作 出無限貢獻。這樣音樂才得到尊重,一同演奏之樂師亦同樣得到尊重 ACKNOWLEDGE:  There seems to be a ridiculous rumor circulating that a  Mr. Fred Carpio whom also is a Drum teacher residing at Musicland Studios that he is my teacher? This is considered an Insult  to God who is truly my teacher!  Please Stop your B.S. or I'll see you in Court!                                                                                            很多人問我在 Musicland Studio 教鼓的 Fred Carpio 是否我的老師?不知道為甚麽會有這個不知所謂 的謠傳???我沒有跟任何人學過打鼓,我相信這是神賜給我的吧! 所以神就是我的老師 , 不要再無中生有!!   1.  卓越的技術 2.  強烈的節奏感 3.  流暢的創意 4.  超凡的音樂造詣 Wisdom is not Truth, Truth is not Beauty, Beauty is not Love, Love is not Music, Music is the Best... "Frank Zappa - 1979" Techniques and creativity are the foundations which leads to a solid groove and contributes to better musicianship. Improved techniques improves your grooves which makes it possible to execute your musical decisions.   技術和創意,是達致更強節奏感,及更高音樂造詣的基礎。 技術的進步能增強你的節奏感,使你能夠把你的音樂意念表達出來。    Superior Technique doesn't always lead to better Musicality, but most of our Innovators on all Instruments are able to hear things their peers can't. but are able to execute their innovations because their techniques are Superior.   精湛的技術不一定帶來更好的音樂感,但無論任何樂器,大部分的創新者, 是因為他們的技術超卓,能夠聽到別人所不能聽見的,才可以實現他們的創新
My Custom made Stacatto North Drums back in 1985 The First written rudiment dates back to year 1610 in Basel, Switzerland. "Regulations", which specified the different drum signals for Revolutionary Troops, was written by Baron Friedrich von Stuben in Philadelphia while he was working for Continental Congress in 1778.the Battle of Sempach was the first recorded use of fifes and drums used as a means of signalling troops in battle. Later in France, professional drummers became part of the King's honour guard in the 17th - 18th century. Rudimental drumming was also  featured heavily during reign of Napoleon I. A march called      "Le Rigodon", in 18th century, is said to be one of the cornerstones                          of modern rudimental drumming. Charles Stewart Ashworth is said to have originally used term "rudiments" to describe a group of sticking patterns and is therefore considered by some tobe the Father of rudimental drumming.
