Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

I agree, the drummer is fine. But the girl's singing really does not work for the song. And the cross is the wrong way up.

Re: What songs do you really like the drumming on?

They're not necessarily - or not at all - the same songs that I just like to listen to. (If listening without tapping on something exists :))
Lately I have re-discovered Level 42, I think they're...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

Have some unknown almighty authority declare that "Our prices are not negotiable". A classy gold plated sign on the wall is sufficient. 90% of the buyers won't ask the question if they see the answer...

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

It does if you hit the rim softly (whichever way, cross-stick wise or just tap it like your mom would :) ). If you hit it hard it's a rimshot.

Re: Soundproof Practice Room in Garden

Is there really no suitable room in the house? If you build a new structure in the garden and your budget is limited, you might end up with a less sound proof solution than if you threw the same...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Tried it several times and hated it. Even if the loop is airtight and if you can hear it properly, the looper is like a player who does not listen to anyone.

Then again he's the ideal scapegoat :)

Re: Transporting a drum set when homeless?

OK I take it back... I had a momentary lapse of decency. I'll give 10 bucks to the next homeless person I see to make up.

Re: 2014 STAGE CUSTOM review ☞

Are you comparing the color with an older kit? Birch turns yellow over time, all my Ikea furniture does.

Re: Really wanky behaviour....

I'm sure you're right about that. The same applies to firemen, teachers and nurses. They don't get the money they deserve BECAUSE they love their job so much. Is that fair? Honestly I don't know.

Re: Snare on 1 and 3?

Prince Sexy MF has the snare on 1 and on 2-and. It is not crazy to put the snare on 1. It's delicate though, it's like steak with chocolate sauce. It can be done but it can be done very badly. Had...

Re: Amazing Street Drummer in France

Don't underestimate the street artist... He plays his own stuff, there is no bar and yet he gets paid. :)

Re: Amazing Street Drummer in France

Exactly. It's not the wood, it's not the sticks, it's not the heads and not the brand. It's groove and creativity. Thanks for sharing the fresh air!

Re: Really wanky behaviour....

Sounds most of all like an amateuristic organisation to me. 8:50pm, then 4:30pm, then "the best we can do is 6:30pm". If the planning is that flexible, you could have expected everything else to be...

Re: When people ask you to 'play something', what do you play?

When people ask "play something", I ask what music they like, look it up on deezer and play along with it, with variable degree of authenticity.
I think it's hard to play something with drums only,...

Re: Here's an idea

I think there is nothing wrong with today's kids and commitment. If they have 10 different interests, that's usually the parents that want their kids to have a 5 pages resumé at 10 years old.

Re: Here's an idea

I guess there are several schools of thought. One is selection: lock the kid up with a practice pad and Stick Control and if (s)he's still paradiddling a year later, (s)he must be a committed future...

The damage will filter more than earplugs do, mate. And 24/7 too.

Re: Anyone tried taking cymbal bag and snare on a plane (Ryan Air)?

A cymbal bag is certainly too big to go as hand luggage on a Ryanair flight. You will pay extra (i believe it's 60 Euro, much less than if you Fedex it though) but more importantly you should check...

Re: Where are you and where is your mind?

Hi Dre,


I recognise that. As you said it's your brain playing tricks on you. Most people have this in any kind of situation performing in front of others, even more so when the others are...

Re: Songs With Bored Drummers

I don't think it's generational, there have always been people that like 60 ingredients on their pizza, but to me there is usually no "point" in such music or pizza, no theme, no meaning, no message....

Re: once again.....

There are many other, and much better reasons to play softly other than not wanting to upset the dinner crowd. Like, the song asks for it.

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom questions! Please Help!!!

Errrr... Don't get another kit if you can't manage to tune it in a day or two... Tuning ain't easy and unless someone does it for you, it's going to take weeks or months before the kit sounds the way...
