Re: Using a snare as a floortom

Re: the OP, with a very shallow floor tom (like a snare) I imagine you'd have to close-mic to project any sound to the audience?

This is what has kept me from picking up a pandeiro. The idea is...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Well I can't prove anything either way, but I know if I listen to Morello he sounds more technical than Buddy (Buddy was crazy fast but Morello seems as fast, if not faster, and way more technically...

Re: Anyone else notice the cost of sticks getting ridiculous

Just jumping in to defend Amazon: I seriously doubt you purchased it from "them", or that they packaged it. They front a bunch of stores who do their own packaging and shipping.

Re: Serious drummer? (I think not ;)

I have a question, and it's an honest question, not one where I'm trying to make you think like me:

Do you think goofing around on stage undermines your show?

Re: Ringo Starr

Yeah I saw that and my first thought was "wow, a rock and roll legend, drum hero, and cultural icon has to share an honor with effing Green Day" and I felt sad about the world.

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

Surely you realize that you've lumped together a bunch of people of varying talent levels. You've also brought up ProTools regarding the Stones who were around for decades before it was invented.

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Joe Morello.

Everyone talks about Buddy because he was such a big personality. But Morello was the guy everyone wanted to play like.

Re: My personal list of rock and roll's top cowbell moments

FTR, that's not Charlie playing the cowbell. Some producer thought it would sound better with a cowbell intro so he just added it. Which is why it's entirely out of time. :-P

Re: Internal Metronome

Re: How do you count while olaying drums?

There are people who never count and there are people who always count. I want to be in the second group but, being lazy, fall somewhere in the middle.

Re: Acoustic Drums VS Electronic Drum Kits

I am an e-drum owner and an unabashed e-drum hater. I simply do not like them. A lot of that has to do with time I wasted trying to set up a 'quiet' practice space in several apartments.

Something I've learned is that it's also possible to get stuck in a rut just using Syncopation. A lot of other books (Art of Bop, Jazz Drummer's Workshop, etc) define their own Syncopation-like...
