MANGINI vs DONATI
« on: February 22, 2007, 03:49:07 PM »
the technical vs the technical

both have been known to session for guitar players, playing polymetric songs, playing fast all over the drums.

in Mike's Z Clinic.  He recommended Virgil to Steve when he wanted to leave the band.

My vote goes to Mangini.  IMO, he's more musical.  Plus, I like his tone better.  He knows when to stop doing polyrhythms.  I mean, lets face it.  Polyrhythms are cool.  If you pull one out, its hardly you can't express a fellow stick-in-arms.  But the way Virgil uses them doesn't sound musical most of the times.  Whereas Mike will use it at the right moment.

By the way, both are really good friends and exchange licks and tips.

I mostly enjoyed steve vai albums where bozzio and mangini were the drummers. But i guess this doesn't say much if I'm about to compare drummers (mangini and donati) since these are different times and different sets of songs. Was mostly looking at it as a whole, not just the drummer themselves.

I'll need more exposure to a lot of both Mike and Virgil's work to get a better view :-)

well for me try to check out reign of fire first before judging donati. mangini is good but I only can recognize his speed. and he plays like a punk drummer. Virgil Donati uses his inovation in playing drums. I mean with regards to volume dynamics. I would go to donati. Well donati is my bet.
Just let your music fill the empty spaces in you. It's all you have so take advantage of it. It's a gift!

For jaw-drops and "how'd he do that?" type of moments = DONATI
For jaw-drops and "I wish I can do that..." type of moments = MANGINI

Mike Mangini can do some weird stuff but still sound musical at the same time.  Donati sounds more robotic (hence more out of this world).  But I like 'em both...

well, to me they're both technical and it boiled down to being musical.

pasingit lang, Pinoydrums dudes! ganda ng topic e :) i'd go for Mike Mangini. i really dig his playing style more than Donati's. and yeah, Mangini sounds more musical. Donati is the ultimate drum soloist, though.. grabe sa speed and technique!

isa pang kinagulat ko when i watched zildjian day in philippines and mangini is the main performer, may nagtanong about paradiddle or something about rolls, kasi nga ang bilis niya and then ang sagot niya di siya gumagamit ng paradidle or madalang so imagine ang mga 5 strokes, 6 and so on and so on doing it by single stroke nakakapagod d ba and i saw donati using bouce rolls or with double strokes most of the times.... so mangini, magaling din si donati.... :-D gulo ko noh....peace po Godbless
