Re: Losing an eye to a hi hat rod, injury and prevention

I was helping a guy set up his kit at a multi band show. He had cut off the top of his hi-hat rod and it was a little rough and flared out at the top where he cut it. It got stuck in his clutch. ...

Re: Just saw "The Wrecking Crew" movie

Two memorable parts were when Hal Blaine said he went from a mansion in hollywood, a Rolls Royce and a yacht to being a security guard in Arizona. It's the same story as so many celebrities. They...

Re: Drumming dreams

I have a variation of the same dream all the time. I show up at a gig and I either can't find my drums, or I don't remember rehearsing with the band and don't know any of the songs I'm supposed to...

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

If you count church, I'm in four bands. Two times a week at church. That's free. Two times a month at a venue that pays $40 plus free food and drinks. One to three gigs a weekend that pay between...

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

Being a musician who plays out five or six nights a week, which only brings in a few hundred dollars a month, on top of having to work 40+ hours a week at a day job I hate, I would love to make good...

Where's all the gear?

I was thinking about vintage drums and gear the other day. It occurred to me that companies like Zildjian and Ludwig have been around selling drums and cymbals for over 100 years. Even "newer"...

Re: hihat position: the glitch

I used to set up my hi-hat like that and I played that way for years. When you play without having to crossover your arms though, it's very hard to sit in on another kit and play crossed over. I...

Another Drumming First

I played at a blues festival today and the big umbrella they had on stage to block the sun for the drummer fell across my kit. It missed my head but it knocked over my cymbals and floor tom and was...

Re: If you had to choose....

Gadd's signature sticks are small. 7a diameter and 15.5 inches. If they look big in his hands it's because he's a small guy.

Re: Making $ playing drums

Most gigs around here pay around $300. If I'm in my three piece band, it's $100 per man. My other five piece comes out to $60 a person. I don't know of any churches that pay musicians. Every...

Re: Bid like a man!

I have been amazed at what some people will pay for gear on eBay. I recently bid on a used usb drive for my laptop. The winning bid was only $5 less than a brand new buy it now.

Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

Re: Profesional Attitude

He didn't have anything to be insecure about. It's obvious when you hear both of us play that he is a much better drummer. The leader was just being nice by letting me sit in. The leader sits in...

Profesional Attitude

There's a drummer that lives around these parts that tours with a big name jazz/fusion band. I'm not going to name names but most of you would know the band, even though the drummer isn't really...

Re: Personality Influences Playing

You live in Arkansas and I was born and grew up in Arkansas. The oven of southern heat and humidity perhaps.

Renting kits to try out

We've all had the itch to try out new and/or different drums. It's hard to do this in music stores because they may or may not be tuned well and you are hearing them out of context. Since a lot of...

Re: Personality Influences Playing

I didn't really want to start another solo thread. That was just an example I used for myself. I wanted to discuss how you think your personality affects your playing. Good, bad or ugly.

Re: How to stop playing slightly ahead of the beat?

When I play to a metronome I tend to play ahead of the beat as well. One studio guy told me he just moves my whole drum track over just a hair to line it up with the click. To me it sounds like I'm...

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

The hi-hat part is really fast. Jeff just plays it so smooth and relaxed it doesn't sound that way. It's like a regular shuffle at 168bpm. That's pretty quick. I'm working on letting that pick-up...

Re: Why doesn't anyone make quieter drums?

For some reason, some of the more "enlightened" drummers on here are assuming that because I would like some quieter drums that means I can't, or don't like to play quietly. I love playing quietly...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

I've wanted a kit with an 11" tom for as long as I can remember. My 10" always feels a little small, and the 12" seems too big. I know Tama used to sell them, but I've never seen a kit for sale...
