Then that gives me the motivation to move ahead to the next challenge.

October 02, Has anybody made it through this whole book? It really makes fxtreme mind work harder because you have to break down the pieces of this “machine” we call independence with the FOUR limbs of course, and then put them back together. The concept of interdependence evolved directly from the fact that I wanted to learn how to play some of the drum patterns that I was programming for my original compositions back in But his real magic is that he makes even the interdependencs complicated rhythms sound and feel as smooth and relaxed as his emotionally driven, intedrependence, basic grooves.

Send a private message to h3r3tic. It was not only his insane drumming that floored me, but also his songwriting and production skills.

Anyone else have anything to say on this? His performances on that tour solidified his place atop the list of modern-day drumming geniuses.


I do not have Marco’s book, but have been working on my own ideas minne,ann these lines. Then I began the next chapter of adding triplet combinations and playing them against the 16th-note groupings. So it has been only today that I finished the first chapter Warm-ups! And how can so many phenomenal players survive in such close proximity to one another?

Why did it take so long?

Marco Minnemann: Beyond Chops

Interdepenednce all, Just some questions for others who may have worked through this book, or may be Will be used according to our Privacy Policy. I remember this began in between tours, while I was in Spain.

I never intended to write any books or try to influence a new generation of drummers with this concept. Does it become more of a spectacle than an educational event? I feel that when you have a special talent, you should take it as far as you can. I remember doing a session with the band H-BlockX, and during the breaks I started practicing a paradiddle on the right side and ny ratamacue on the left.

I do wonder if in the long run it is more beneficial to be able to play each part feet or hands and then drop the other part in or out. I started playing double-stroke combinations against single-stroke combinations, and once I felt comfortable with that I added paradiddle combinations against different paradiddle combinations.

I was very patient with myself because I really wanted to achieve this goal.


BUT after each exercise you become more and more aware about the key to independence. People listening are like ‘hey, how the heck can he do that? Hey man, Marco is one of my favorite drummers and definitely a giant among this generation’s greats.

I really sounded bad at first. Did that xetreme by any chance come with a dvd? All the while I was writing music and working with my band, I was learning this technique on the side. This technique was developed to be fun and challenging, not designed for us to challenge each other like some type of athletic competition.

And new ideas keep coming and coming and I’m being able to execute them with less difficulty than before.

One of the guys came into the room to see who was playing. Find all posts by FunkyJazzer. Find all posts by h3r3tic. For the first couple of years, I sounded really stiff.

The energy that I put into learning these difficult concepts comes back to me when I finally learn them. So I know that the next chapters will help me more not only in my independence but my creativity as well. At the time the first book came out, I sounded like a complete beginner.
