  • Double Overhand Crossover

    Has anyone here mastered this? I have seen many drummers do it and have heard Mr Peart speak of it but unfortunately, he never gave away the "secret". I had forgotten about it until I witnessed him (Peart) do it again last night on the Buddy Memorial Concert on the Drum Channel. He makes it look so easy and sound so cool.
    Anyone got any tips?

    I, for one, have definitely not mastered it. Heh. I always end up whacking my sticks together. It is cool looking though and my instructor can do it with ease.

        I'm thinking it's the art of playing the floor tom and snare in alternating beats, and often used in quick fills. Once you've mastered that, go ahead and try doing it behind your back like Donnie Marples did...

        I've seen drum lines do a similar trick and play notes on their neighbors drum. Besides sounding cool, it looks awesome.

        In any case, it's far beyond my current capabilities, and I wouldn't even attepmt it without wearing safety goggles...

          That should make it perfect for claves practice then!


          Oh yeah...what Colquhoun said...Pardon my ignorance....but what is "double overhand crossover"? It sounds messy and dangerous.

            All that stuff looks cool, but I personally would rather have a drummer sound amazing vs. all the "stick flair". Although I'm working on on throwing my sticks and spinning them and such now a lot, but practice goes into playing before tricks. I just mess with stuff when I can. Crossovers are a lot harder than they look too. I've just started toying with them for practice, but can't see myself acutally using them live or at a show unless I was just showing off.

              I know a guy who can do double stroke rolls using double crossovers. Each note of the double stroke on a different drum. Usually alternating between the snare and floor tom. It is a site to behold.

                  Thank you.
                  Yeah ... what is it? Is it what Peart is doing at 6:46 to 7:00 between the snare and the floor toms on both his right and left?

                    That would be my guess. A real-crowd pleaser, that!

                      If you look in the DVD, "anatomy of a drum solo" Neil explains the mechanics of that and does it in slow motion. I added it to my routine. I can only do it at a snail's pace but practicing it does help me keep my hands out of each others ways while doing other movements.

                        That's IT ?!
                        Not that I 'm saying it's easy, I'm sure it's not at all.
                        Just not what I expected. I guess I'm more "go" than "show" kind of guy.

                        ...off now to give it a try...

                              Ya he's fast but if you listen close during the crossovers, I think you can hear his sticks clicking together. I like his relaxivity though. Very cool left hand during the press rolls.
