Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

That music is pretty bad ass. Can I hear more? Love the stripped down rock feel and how opposite it is from your other high-maintenance rock getup.

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Is that you in the grey button down shirt? I am literally wearing what I believe to be the same garment right now.

I take back all that stuff I said previous about your lack of taste or style.

Re: Left hand: uneven strikes & poor grip. Advice needed

There's no trick to it or special exercise that will fix this. Observe what is different from your right hand, and copy it exactly, don't stop until they are even. Go really slow, exaggerate the...

Bummer about accidentally setting your kit up backwards, though!

Re: Cajons for dummers? Scandalous?

I find a good snappy cajon to be the most suitable truly-portable solution for an impromptu jam in the hills with acoustic guitars. It's really the only percussion that gives you both a bass drum...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

I have a few kick drums, and none of them are physics experts. I can't even get them to do simple calculations.

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Maybe I'm just weird, but that particular performance isn't doing much for me on the drumming side. He seemed like he wasn't quite in command or sure what he wanted to do as he was doing it.

Enlighten, please. Are these different chips than you might get with fried fish?

Re: Connecting a bass drum pedal

Sounds like your drum might have a bit of a forward pitch.

Use the front spurs to make sure that the front of your drum is not on the ground, and you also want to try and make that sucker level.

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

As everyone knows, nothing matters for metal with the exception of how fast you can hit your bass drum. Get a china for marking your quarter notes and a double pedal and you can play all metal in...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

This is a great point. When I first started, I had very little understanding of the huge gap in expression between the two types of kits... And it really didn't matter, because I couldn't do that...

Re: What kind of grip does this drummer use?

Yup. It's weird, and just thinking about what his tendons are doing all stretched out like that gives me phantom pains.

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

I own a mesh pad roland kit for home practice, and I hate it. E-kits are so limiting when it comes to the full sound and color set of a real kit. Anyone trying to tell you dynamics and feel are...

Re: Anxiety before a gig

If you know all your parts and are ready to play the gig, you have nothing to worry about. The best way to avoid nerves I find is to keep practicing until I can do it in my sleep and know I won't be...

Re: What kind of grip does this drummer use?

Don't worry about what he's doing, and especially don't set up your kit just to be like him. Setup your kit in a way that's comfy for you, and see a teacher for a few sessions about your grip...

Re: Drumming Addiction and Withdrawals

I'm okay for one day without playing music.

Two days is pushing it. I want to play badly.

Three days is when I start to get an almost physical "itch". It's like built up energy that needs to...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

"Throw a stone... Hit a guitar player".
