Re: Taking kick pedals on a plane

I'm sure Al Q et al don't need us for clever ideas on how to satisfy the voices in their heads.

I was told by one airline taking a cymbal as hand luggage is ok. I would guess a pedal or parts of...

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

I see what you mean, but life's too short to contamplate your own shortcomings... Look at the bright side. Youtube allows you to steal those nuances and become a better drummer :)

Re: ALBUMS THAT HAD AN LASTING IMPACT ON YOUR DRUMMING

Yep! Replace Genesis by RHCP - Blood Sugar Sex Magik and there's my list.

I could add
Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales
Deep Purple - Live In Japan

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

I don't think determining why human time is better is an objective by itself. I lost my pink glasses long ago. The objective is to make a lot of money with that knowledge.

Re: Now a morning drummer

I don't want to go off topic, but.... 4:30 am, if awake, is a time for very different things. No way to sneak out of bed and see my girlfriend with the 10", 12" and 16" boobs!

Re: Independence vs learning set patterns

Interesting subject to meditate.
From my modest level I don't think a drummer ever reaches the stage of 4 limbs can just do whatever at the same time. Octopuses have pieces of brain in each limb...

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

Well it fits in the 21st century trend of inventing something that replaces a million people's jobs so that one person gets insanely rich and a million others scratch their heads and wonder what to...

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

Many scientific studies look like a waste of effort.... until someone gets a brilliant idea and commercialises a bagless vacuum cleaner, a nuclear reactor or a drum computer that sounds like a real...

Re: anyone have an older stage custom with a rattle?

Re: It's hard to start a band, when you're a Drummer

Look at what you wrote. Turn it the other way around. Now you see the bright side. You have ideas for songs in your head. You can hum them. Now all you need is a guitarist (or bagpipeist or anyone...

Re: Shoes and Gloves

Yeah barefoot is a little weird. It's like those drummers that can't play with a shirt on :)
Thin soled shoes for me.
However no gloves and no long sleeves for me, no bracelets, watch, nuttin but...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

I do hope that, between being a will-less, hot, drumming (but not very well) sex toy, and no longer giving a shit (or some animal's arse as they say in Wales) about what other people think, there is...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

These things are delicate hey... If you say I don't like female athletes because they don't run as fast as male ones, I don't know if one should call it sexist but st least it's based on facts.
Now...

Re: Beyond - dynamics - spaces

Hey Keepitsimple, you don't know how much you hit the bull's eye with that Hiromi link! I just bought the Move album and it's insanely good. I'm sitting here with headphones on and tears in my eyes...

Re: Beyond - dynamics - spaces

It's a way to stay sane :)

Thanks for the tip! Paris is 600 km from here, not sure if I can justify that with the minister of finance after buying a cymbal the other day :) but will keep an eye...

Re: Beyond - dynamics - spaces

Absolutely great. Love the expressiveness.
Unobtainium indeed :) and that's OK. I would not enjoy it as much if I could reproduce any of it.
There's another track in the Drummers section. Love it.

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

I think those are great observations, I think it explains a great deal as to why songs become classics apart from their musical quality.

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

I think what characterises classics is uniqueness, or rather, being first of a kind. Trend setting. Classics are written by people who break the rules - in the right way. Of course there is a great...

If you're tempted to do that, than just do it :) if that's a style you feel like playing.

More in general, as you're saying you're overwhelmed and feel unable to retain what you learn, I really...

Do you think the others will learn 20-30 songs overnight or any faster than you will? Subscribe to spotify or a similar service and you can practise and play along all of them. Don't aim for...

You're going to be overwhelmed even more with all these replies :)

There are only so many books or methods you can study in depth. Probably only one or maybe two at a time. I bought Syncopation,...
