Re: THE AMBIDEXTROUS THREAD

I'm confused...A lot of things I do left handed, but a lot are right handed. Write, eat, throw, play tennis lefty, but swing baseball bats, golf clubs, and shoot right handed (my dad is the mirror...

Re: The natural meter challenge!

Interesting idea. I'll have to try it sometime. In my orchestra gig, I've found that even professional directors/conductors have tempos all over the place. One of our directors (who is also a...

Re: My Band Frustrations

Wow! This sounds just like an interview I just read with Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters and his relations ship with Dave Grohl!

At one point with FF, he was about to quit (or get fired) for...

Re: First studio drum experience - Advice?

That's a problem I've been wrangling with since getting back into drumming, particularly with orchestral music (which is rarely if ever written by anyone that actually plays drums). I often get too...

Re: So you're going to a band audition...

Having just auditioned for a band, I found that having the right sound system is very important for the drummer. The first time with these guys, the only thing I could hear was the rhythm guitar...

Re: Always out of breath, need to get my stamina up somehow.

+1...Only mine was March. I usually walk my subdivision. One circuit equals a mile. Due to the cold weather in the beginning of the year, I hadn't been walking. Finally we got some warm weather and I...

Re: Looking For Best Drumset with cymbals!

If there's a "Music Go Round" store near you, check out their used inventory of both drums and cymbals. Do some research on the items in your price range, then go to the store and check them out...

Re: Some advice needed re: accuracy of songs

After coming back into drumming after a lifetime layoff (30+ years), I've had to re-learn a lot of drum parts. Youtube has become my best friend in that regard. However, looking at original drum...

Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

They already do! OnStar from GM has it. It can slow a stolen vehicle down, track and provide GPS data to law enforcement, and then prevent a vehicle from being re-started once it has been turned off....

Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

A lot of great suggestions here. ALWAYS keep a close eye, especially if there are other bands involved.

Back in the 70s, there was a pretty big band here in Atlanta that had a reputation for never...

Re: Life After Drumming?

Way back when, we never used hearing protection. Between cymbal crashes, and sitting in front of huge amplifiers, it's a wonder I can hear anything at all. One time when I was a teen, a buddy put...

Re: Life After Drumming?

I'm about 10 years behind you, but I know from which you speak. Arthritic knees and ankles, a bad rotator cuff in one shoulder, etc. I don't think I'll ever be without a kit again, even if it's only...

Re: What kind of drummer are you?

An old "never was" drummer that used to be a jack of all trades, but after a many year layoff is now a bloody awful recreational drummer. Biggest concern now is laying down a good solid groove....

Re: Weekend Warriors? The older drummer thread...

Re: Weekend Warriors? The older drummer thread...
