Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

Re: Independence vs learning set patterns

Re: Some advice needed re: accuracy of songs

Re: What's your latest purchase?

How would you compare the sound to the 18" A customs? I am in the market for a crash and am beginning my search for an 18" A custom but don't want to be too narrow.

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

Re: Why do listeners move on as they get older?

I guess I don't really buy into the premise of the original post. Is there some study that confirms this view? If it were true why then is there such popularity with classic rock? Satelite and...

Re: I went away and everything changed!

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

Re: Still having a blast playing at 60; I am even more absorbed now..

Most of my playing was between the ages of 5 and 24. Took 3 decades off. I do not have the power and some techniques may not be as good as when I was most active in lessons, probably around 12-14...

Re: Being dragged out of the 60's

It is funny when I was playing in bands in the late 70s and early 80s we were playing music that was fairly new, within 10-15 years. Some Cream and Beatles but a lot of very fresh music. We weren't...

Re: Singing and playing?

This is a recent revelation to me. I realized it since in this band I finally got around to taking on lead vocals for a few songs. I don't need nearly as many notes (my version of charting).

Re: Singing and playing?

I sing and play. In some cases I too simplify the drumming. I do find I have to work at some songs more than others. Often vocals come in ahead of the beat, and that is a challenge especially if you...
