Re: How do I tell my friend that his expensive custom handmade snare is shit?

Tell him he has a Gribble infestation-little crustaceans that bore and feed on wood. Tell him the only way to rid the Gribbles is radioactive material that will have to decay-several months-maybe...

Re: I'm thinking about staining the inside of my Pearl SSCs... Am I crazy?

Man the table turned out great GruntersDad. I like the iron legs and the tiny knobs on the side. So do the knobs hold the aprons on or is it one solid thick table top with no apron?

Re: Heel up - arrrgh!

Re: I'm thinking about staining the inside of my Pearl SSCs... Am I crazy?

Man I never knew they were sealed-you could try if sealed it won't penetrate so rub off. I guess you could get red heads lol, or buy some colored kitchen liner or colored film to stick on it. I...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Thanks Destroyer (John right?). This swing thing has been a mental block after a bad gig experience. Yeah I keep trying double pedal and giving up on it-Lefty's journey keeps me trying-he's rocking...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Correction. Nick as I recollect early in the thread I mentioned (warned you) your comment could have been remove by the moderator-as you took an attitude. At least one other has mentioned your...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Thanks Steady and Swissward your comments are really helping me identify my grip problems. I didn't realize using my fingers would change the sound and action so much- but I can see it now. I tried...

Re: Fav vids from the "Drummers" section of DW

Holy Moly how does he play hi hats so fast (well all of it so fast)-the first two minutes he's on freaking fire-damn. I don't care much for the stick tricks-he don't need it when he plays like that,...

Re: So that didn't end well

You did the right thing-keep your cool. He is crazy-I'm sure mostly just threat rather than action. But you never know though-I had a drunk fella pull a pistol on me and stick it in my face (he was...

Thanks brentcn and Steady Freddy. Yeah my grip needs work-I'm looking to take care of it. As far as fulcrum it changes. I watched Tony Williams do endless doubles holding his sticks with the back of...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Well I went ahead and added kick (which I'm not sure is correct) and starting to add a little snare-which he does lots of rolls I've yet to add. Getting a bit more loose. This is a sample of two...

Re: Rules in Music

Re: A sad day in Seminole Florida

Sad to hear Johnny you find a place you like and trust-know all the staff-and, as you say, the whole community plugs in there. You chose to support them, which I applaud-I do the same, and it's tough...

Re: My gears and ways to get better sounds

I agree the hi hats are too hot. Nice kit I was surprised that deep kick didn't have more oomph-sounds a little wimpy. The 12 in toms sounds ok but I think the 10 in need some tweaking. I just use a...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

No you're fine-don't give up-you've come to the right place. Just some caution how we phrase stuff-I step in it too. Be respectful and civil and you're home free. You made your salient point-just the...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?
