Has anybody made it through this whole book? Find all posts by Anduin. October 01, My journey on Marco Minnemann’s Extreme Interdependence.

I started playing double-stroke combinations against single-stroke combinations, and once I felt comfortable with that Interdependencce added paradiddle combinations against different paradiddle combinations.

These combinations led to very interesting modulations in the rhythm. BUT after each exercise you become more and more aware about the key to independence.

For the first couple of years, I sounded really stiff. As fate would have it, here we are, ten years later, and this now-veteran drumming master continues his quest to challenge himself and the drumming world to achieve bold, new musical creations that reach far beyond mere technical acrobatics.

Yeah it looks great. And new ideas keep coming and coming and I’m being able to execute them with less difficulty than before. It’s going to be my next long-term commitment or ‘project’ book. But that doesn’t matter because I achieved what wanted till now and I’ll be continuing this book because I know that only this first chapter has helped my independence tremendously, it has open my mind more to creativity because since it makes us work with ALL 4 limbs, I came up now with some cool hi-hat foot stuff with ride cymbal and etc.

So I know that the next chapters will help me more not only in my independence but my creativity as well. So I arrived at S. Then I began the next chapter of adding triplet combinations and playing them against the 16th-note groupings. It was not only his insane drumming that floored me, but also his songwriting and production skills. I hear ya on that.

Does it become more of a spectacle than an educational event? When and why did you begin your pursuit of interdependence? Do you feel that most drummers come to your clinics really wanting to learn anything, or are they mostly there to see a superhero flash his superpowers?


Find all posts by diosdude. I had two weeks off and decided I would start working on all of the various combinations that I could imagine against one another. When I started this I found that it was very difficult to break these patterns down and play—for instance, double stroke—roll patterns on my left side against triple-stroke combinations on my right.

Minnemann has been a prolific songwriter and producer for many years, covering a spectrum of diverse musical styles between his early years with his band, Illegal Aliens, and his six eclectic solo recordings.
