Re: Tom angles!!!!

We all know the value of extreme tom angles in your craigslist ad. Now let's talk about the value of camera angles. The more pictures in your ad, the better. But the key is to post multiple shots...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

This kit is called the "Enforcer," which is ironic since the setup just screams anarchy.

Re: Clyde Stubblefield

Clyde Stubblefield: When I first saw him play, it was like I suddenly saw the light, and I thought: "I wanna play like that!"

Re: Clyde Stubblefield

Oh yes, among drummers who have influenced me the most, Clyde is definitely in my top 5. If you don't have it already, get the DVD called "Soul of the Funky Drummers"...

Re: Making entry level sets sound better. How?

A good set of new heads is indeed the place to start. Then you have to learn how to tune them. This takes time and practice to get right. Two helpful resources:

Re: The White Stripes are... No More

Sad to hear, but not unexpected. The silver lining is Jack White will continue to make music for a long time. Music pretty much pours out of that guy. And I don't care what anybody else says, I think...

Re: I am 33. Am I too old to start learning?

Re: I am 33. Am I too old to start learning?

Hey man, that's darn good for two months playing. Congrats on the progress. It's very good that you are playing to a metronome. That will really help you develop good time, which is the most...

Re: How long did it take you to find a band?

Oh yeah, that's a frustrating situation to be in. My current band is usually receptive to my ideas, but not always. I think the trick is to find people who are mostly on the same page as you, but...

Re: How long did it take you to find a band?

Well, I'm glad to know it's not just me that has a hard time! At one point, I wondered if I should join any band I could just to get out there. I often hear stories of musicians meeting at gigs and...

Re: Does this annoy you?

I don't think I would ever be "annoyed" by watching a good drummer play, and this guy certainly qualifies.

As for drum covers, I've got nothing against them. In fact, the last video I favorited is...

How long did it take you to find a band?

I am currently in a new band, and I'm feeling pretty good about it so far. We are nearing the completion of our debut album, and I think it's going to be pretty good. Thing is, the search for the...

Re: Getting "yelled" at onstage

Unacceptable and unprofessional. On stage is absolutely the wrong place for this sort of thing. First, it makes your band look unhinged and amateurish, worse than the mistake itself. Secondly, if...

Re: Best all around snare drum

I once bought a used 5x14 COB Supra thinking it would replace my 5.5x14 Legend maple snare. After a few hours of tuning and side-by-side comparison, I determined I liked the sound of my old snare...

Re: Are Drummers Losers?

Practice on pads. When nobody else is home, let 'er rip on the kit.

Do your best in school. Good grades won't diminish you as a drummer.

Getting in a famous band is a long shot. Open...

Re: sorry but i have to, BIG DRUM KITS

I currently play a 3-piece kit. I like it that way. From a playing standpoint, however many pieces other drummers use doesn't concern me in the least. I think the only time I feel bad when some...
