Tim Baltes' (@timbofromkeno) Top 5 Drumming Moments That Shaped HIs Playing Style

Feb 02, 2021 | 0 comments


  Our guest this week is Tim Baltes or, to many, @timbofromkeno on Instagram. He’s known as a funny man, but a big reason why his schtick works is because he’s a monster player as well. We break down the top 5 drumming moments that shaped his style and, in true form, Tim was authentic and blazed his own trail with his picks…which aren’t the traditional choices. I hope you enjoy my conversation with Tim Baltes.   This episode is also sponsored by Waves Audio. This podcast would take me soooo much longer to edit if it wasn't for the...

Myths Our Drum Teachers Told Us w/ Dimitri Fantini

Jan 26, 2021 | 0 comments


  Today’s guest is Dimitri Fantini…a great drummer and instructor based in Maryland. I personally subscribe to his Patreon and I suggest you do the same thing. Since Dimitri is technically one of my online instructors, I thought I’d invite him on to discuss some myths that we hear being taught that are just wrong. We had a great time, but tended to agree on almost everything…BORING! Anyways, we dissect the following myths:   Only practice what you're bad at/If you sound good, you're not practicing. There is one correct way to hold a stick. Learning more "stuff" or patterns...

Zach Lind breaks down his favorite Jimmy Eat World grooves / songs and tells the story of why they each hold a special place in his drumming heart. There are a lot of great perspectives in this episode including how the element of surprise is an artist’s greatest weapon, knowing when you’re not needed and how he’s always thinking about what he can take AWAY from a part to make it unique as opposed to adding more.     This episode is also sponsored by Waves Audio.

'Save it for the Pod' - Where's The Beat?!

Jan 12, 2021 | 0 comments


Gunnar Olsen (Puscifer, Big Data, Bruce Springsteen) and I were ODDLY excited about recording this one. **New Episode** of Big Fat Five OUT TODAY titled “Where’s the Beat?!”. We each brought on 5 songs that best represent that feeling of, “um…I can’t find the one....guys?!....I CANT FIND THE ONE!!”. It’s happened to all of us and it’s a feeling we both LOVE. Many songs are easily heard (and perhaps meant to be easily heard) with multiple different pulses, while some just go out of their way to have a “gotcha!” moment. Either way, this was the most fun I’ve had...

Big Fat Progress

Jan 05, 2021 | 0 comments


**NEW EPISODE** I decided to start off the year by revisiting the very first episode of this podcast. At that point, we really had no idea what this podcast was going to become (and in ways I still don’t), but there was a section of that episode where Kris talked about the story of starting Big Fat Snare Drum. I wanted to replay a clip from that and then I invited Kris back on the show to discuss how difficult this last year has been for us as a small business and what we’ve done to keep the doors open....
