Re: How Hard Do You Hit Your Drums?

When you see a rock or metal drummer bashing the hell out of his drums as hard as he can, it's really not about volume or musical requirements or anything like that.

It's about thier own style and...

Re: Tendonitis

Same problem here. What I do is stretch my arms for a minute before I play. I stretch my arms straight back behind me with my fingers pointed up, like a police hold or something. That stretches...

Re: Greatest moments of your favourite drummers

Gene is actually NOT a human. (Although he did play in a band called Human)

Re: Joey Jordison

Yes, I think Joey is a great drummer as well. Good speed and power. But let's be a little realistic, he is not THE best metal drummer around. I could name several metal drummers that have more...

Re: Joey Jordison

I respect your opinion here and thank you for stating it that way. Joey is indeed a very good drummer.

There are a lot of people that need to make the distinction between, "My favorite drummer",...

Re: Open Hand Drummer List

What is your idea of an open handed drummer? I'm probably not completely open handed since I also have a set of hi-hats on my left side also, those remain shut most of the time.

But if a person...

Re: Open Hand Drummer List

Actually I am completely right handed. I just like the high-hats on the other side.

Re: Open Hand Drummer List

Thanks, it's a 22" Sabian Paragon, Neil Peart signature ride. It has a wonderful cutting sound, but it does not have much of a bell sound.

Re: Open Hand Drummer List

I play almost exclusively open handed. I have a set of hats on the right with a remote cable for a left foot pedal, I have it right next to my ride cymbal. For me, this is more comfortable and...

Re: 14 year old drummer who made me weep.

I know he didn't say that, nobody has. That's not my point. Of course Weckel and Coluita are better, they are long time seasoned pro's. They were ripping up the stages before Afro's parents even...

Re: 14 year old drummer who made me weep.

Did you actually watch the video? That kid has more skill and talent than ANY of the home made videos on this site. That's not my "opinion", that's a fact. Nobody here can bash that kid.

Re: Joey Jordison

I believe that technique and good timing are, in fact, two of the most important charicteristics of a good drummer. Speed is another quality.

Re: Joey Jordison

Decent videos. Not taking anything away from Joey because he is a pretty good drummer, but there is really nothing spectacular to his drumming. What he is doing in the videos is pretty basic stuff,...

Re: Drumming and your neighbors

Glad you're not my neighbor! Because I also have the right NOT to have to hear someone else's noise. I love drums, but that doesn't mean that I want to hear it all night. Drums or no drums, nobody...

I'm not really sure what you question was. There is really no debate at all here. There are a lot of drummers who have both a big kit and skills. Some people like big sets, others don't. Some...

Your right about some of the other groups, blew all thier money trying to live like rock stars after it dried up! The MC Hammer syndrome.

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

It's all abut how you want you kit to look. I love big kits, they look great. But I also love watching someone flip out on a 4 piece with 2 cymbals and make it sound good.

Re: To all experienced drummers out there

I feel the biggest gains come from playing with a band. I played for a long time before I played with a band. I probably gained more in the first month than in the previous 3 years.
