Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

I feel like we are not understanding each other. Sexism is massively frowned upon in my group of friends also. I'm saying that often the ways in which it happens can be so subtle that we don't...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Porter - right on! The same attitude is prevalent in so many parts of life, or least so many 'isms', and it can be hard to know what exactly is even contributing to the problem.

Mikel and Picodon...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

I've been reading this thread with lots of interest and, if I may, I'd like to offer an observation:

Sexism is a very real thing and it is disgusting. On that I'm sure 99% of us can agree....

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Cheers guys! I've been playing the same Premier Cabrias and XS20s for over 9 years now. I certainly got my money's worth out them, but the toms aren't holding their tune very well anymore and half...

Not sure how to post the image directly, but:

Re: 30 songs in 6 days.

That sounds like a fairly good plan! Are you transcribing the songs, or just commiting them to memory? For me, it's easiest if I sit down with a pen and paper and spend an hour writing cheat sheets...

Re: Songs that are recognizable just by the beat

Superstition - Stevie Wonder .. has a very recognisable intro. One of the few songs I've launched into at a gig and had people clearly recognise before the guitar came in.

Re: 100BPM "solo issue"

I vote for this. Right now I have a click playing through my speakers at 100bpm, and the funky drummer break is sounding pretty good in my ears over it.. It also happens to be exactly 8 bars long on...

Re: If you could only have a 4-piece cymbal setup, what would it be?

Haha, four cymbals? My last half dozen gigs have been played with only a pair of 13" Meinl extra dry hats and a 20" extra dry ride.

If I had to use four cymbals, at this stage, I'd probably go:...

Re: Help Bass Drum decision

The kick will sound fine with the rest of the kit. However I also think your current kick will sound just fine as well. If you're playing hard rock, presumably you'll be mic'd up for any gigs you...

Re: How often do you use the butt-ends when playing?

I only ever play with the butt of my left stick if I don't have time to switch back after playing a rim click. Which, given that I'm terrible at spinning sticks in my hand, is surprisingly...

Re: "Smaller Kit Syndrome"

For me most of the time, I find the extra toms and cymbal stands end up being nothing more than extra cases to carry from the car. My hardware bag is generally ridiculously light because all that's...

Re: "Smaller Kit Syndrome"

That's bigger than any kit I've gigged on in the past few years :P.

I generally take as little kit as I think I can get away with on a given gig. I'll take both a rack and a floor tom if I really...

Re: 13" vs 14" Hats?

Just buy whichever ones sound the best. Sure, we can say the obvious things like pitch difference and response time....But that's not going to help you at all to decide which you prefer. I'd...

What sort of suggestions would you like, exactly? It sounds like your mind is made!

Re: Playing a four piece

I worry myself a little, in that I'm only 19 years old, and already I've reached the point of trying to take as few drums to a given gig as I can.

The absolute largest kit I play anywhere ever is...

Re: Getting your floor toms perfect everytime.

The legs on my 14" floor are apparently fairly short. If I put the legs as high as they will go, with the very top of the leg flush with the top of the bracket, the height of the drum is perfect....

Re: What to drink during/after playing/gig?

For me it's just water before/during a gig. Although I rarely drink alcohol/energy drinks/coffee ever, so my perspective may be a bit blander than others.
As for food, I've never really paid...

Re: Sharing Your Own Drums At Gigs

I usually use the same response as DrumEatDrum. ( "Yes you may, but I'm very tall and you can't adjust anything" )

I'm 6'2", and I sit high for someone my height, with my thighs pointed a little...

Re: snare and hi-hat coordination

Unless you are playing at ridiculously high volumes, you shouldn't even need to move your forearms up and down while playing. Practice bending your wrist (or better yet, fingers) instead of your...

Re: How Do You Decide: Small Drum Co. or Big Name Co.?

Unless you have a firm reason not to, I'd advise sticking to the bigger companies (Yamaha, Pearl and similar big names). The simple reason being that all drums are (let's face it) kinda the same. The...

Re: Help with Tool - Sober

The way I learned was to practice that hihat pattern with a bunch of simpler grooves first.
Specifically, I used the book 'Rhythm Section Drumming' by Frank Corniola. The first three of four...
