Agree totally.I can't stand most modern drum sounds.
I love the old 50 and 60s jazz records.
Well I guess the remasters of thos records.
Drum sounds are all sounding the same these days.
Too polished and nothing that when you listen,you can actually smell the wood of the drums.
I mean when does an audience all put their heads 2cm from the head of each drum?
Drums sound farking awful now.
Love those old jazz records and Bonham ,well noone will touch his drum sound.
P.S. in a miserable mood from practicing the same old shit so a bit gnarky lol.
And go practice some new shit. I learned to do some semi-complex foot ostinato shit recently and it's the most fun I've ever had drumming.
When I say semi-complex, I mean it took my brain a good two or three hours just to play the ostinato with my feet and then play some of the simpler stick control patterns over top. it sure wasn't easy. I then spent another couple of weeks trying to do Syncopation exercises over top. So all up it has taken me at least a month to get comfortable with it. Now I can improvise fairly freely while keeping the feet going. From here I need to keep working on the same stuff, introducing new ideas, and approaches to actually playing a solo as opposed to just wailing aimlessly. I'm by no means a 'master' but I am slowly getting closer to where I want to be. If anyone had told me a year ago that I would be playing this stuff I'd have told them that it sounded like too much hard work. Which was exactly right, but for some reason I decided I needed a serious challenge and did it.
