I think Mike was selling them, just himself. I should have gotten copies of his books when I had the chance, but his web store is down (he says. Mike Mangini’s Rhythm Knowledge. Front Cover.

His dedication to understanding all aspects of rhythm and to playing with emotion and confidence is incessant.

Sorry to bump a thread, but I’d really like some thoughts on this. If I don’t get any responses this time around, I’ll leave it. I’m also knowlefge the Rhythm Knowledge method to my practicing, albeit only a few certain pages in the book. The first one that I make sure is that I’m in the proper mood for practicing.
If I’m in a sour mood, practicing won’t work, because I will not be as patient then as I will be later. Granted, one thing that I do that helps influence a proper practicing mindset and probably a little bit controversial to some is, while I am using Tempo Advanced on my iTouch, I am also playing, in the background also on the same iTouch a specific subliminal message MP3 that relates to “improving music skills.
The bottom row, I write exercises, and the left column, I write different tempi. Now, I am currently using this kind of a grid for practicing the “chop-builders,” such as Stick Control, Accents and Rebounds the follow-up to Stick Controland also the couple of exercises off of the Secret Weapons DVD.
The other is this: Doing this tends to alleviate the possibility of getting bored, which comes in handy if you tend to be ADD, like myself. Plus it will test your mind’s ability to recall information, and get it used to remembering rhjthm easily.
After that repetiton, I do the same thing, but instead play a baiao foot ostinato underneath for another set at 60bpm. And I repeat that cycle until it gets boring. Now for me, why I do all of this is to be able manginl get as much done, with as much positive progress, at the fastest rate while not getting bored. For this, I would just spend knowledg lot of time playing it half speed, then full speed, then as slow as you can bear to play it, and speed it up from there.
It will help you learn how each knowledgee goes, on the first two, then when you really slow it down, that’s where you put all of your repetitions of a song. The more repetitions the better, but as for how many, I would place a number based on how long you have to learn the song.
Okay, that is my VERY long-winded answer to this question. And while I will admit, I mzngini actively apply those two mnowledge in his book, a lot of other things written in there are common sense. Also, my little disclaimer: I don’t own Volume II yet if I ever will. And also, I am truly, truly surprised no one else has posted here about this either.
From what I recall the concept was to play each individual exercise for 90 minutes. Mike’s theory is that this is the quickest way to create a muscle memory pattern that your body will not forget. If you have the patience, go for it. I never took it much farther than that.
Mike Mangini Rhythm Knowledge Practice Confusion – DRUMMERWORLD OFFICIAL DISCUSSION FORUM
Find all posts by CtrStDrumSchool. I studied with Mike for some time mangino he explained it to me as “recording a motion into your muscle memory”. The idea is to take a motion that you wish to improve. Say single stroke rolls with the hands for example. You would practice any exercise that incorporated that motion for 90 minutes non stop.
One day could be groups of 11 played at 50 Knowlesge for 90 mins. Or 30 minutes of sixteenths, 30 minutes of triplets and 30 minutes of quintuplets.
The exact exercise need not be the same every day or even within the same practice session. The common denominator is the motion of the single stroke roll.

You could do this with doubles, paradiddles, hands, feet He strongly recommends playing larger odd subdivisions knoeledge as 13 or 17 notes per beat because the concentration required to count such unfamiliar note groupings will serve to keep the tempo down and allow you to really do it right.
I would not recommend jumping from “regular” practice right into a 90 minute single stroke roll. Your forearms and hands might get blasted by the jump in workload. Work up to 90 rhtthm over a reasonable period of time, say a few weeks to months.

I will certainly try and incorporate those methods into my own practice. I remember trying to 90 minutes practice schedule, but it was too much for me. I find it better to practice stuff till it feels and sounds good, and really being aware of what I’m doing instead of having an eye dhythm a clock. Find all posts by Elpecs.

Use this forum to exchange ideas and information with your fellow drummers. This post really requires a bit of familiarity with Mangini’s Rhythm Knowledge I seem to go through this from time to time.
I’ll get totally confused with the best way to practice. I’m very interested in the biomechanical aspect of it. I’ve read Mangini’s Rhythm Knowledge, which really appealed to rhyghm inner scientist, but since then I’ve struggled to practice confidently.
For a while, I followed his advice and worked in 90 minute blocks for individual exercises, but was never confident I was “doing it right”. I’m not quite sure how Mike meant for that to be applied; for all his intelligence and drumming ability, the books aren’t very well written, nor are they very pragmatic.
For instance, say I’m practising Stick Control. Is he advocating working on 1 pattern in the minute block method for 6 weeks, or per page? Same with let’s say John Riley comping exercises: Is he talking of spending this time mastering ONE exercise at a time, or am I looking at this too clinically? Generally, I do 3 hours dedicated practice a jnowledge all timed, planned metronome practice, not noodlingand tend not to work on any one thing for less than 20 minutes at a time.
I also try and repeat that same exercise for the next few weeks. I’d be really interested in your thoughts on this, as, like many people, I want to take my drumming as far as I can and get the most out of every session. Mike Mangini Rhythm Knowledge Practice Confusion I’m also applying the Rhythm Knowledge method to my mqngini, albeit only a few certain pages in the book.
