Re: Are we sometimes our best teachers?

This observation is so on point. I love when something I never fully understood or saw before just clicks. Some things take time.

Re: Thoughts on YouTube Covers?

It's like hitting two birds with one stone: listen to a song I like, and watch a drummer drum, at the same time!

Sometimes you can tell when a drummer has merely mastered a song or is genuinely a...

Re: Is there such a thing as 1 time?

Yes, exactly. Practicality aside, I don't see why 1/1 can't exist.

Re: Hitting yourself while playing drums...

I was waiting for this one! Man, it hurts. Thighs too, leaves a nice bruise. I've hit myself in the face also, but thankfully I usually just clip my hair or my ear, thinking, "Wow, that could've been...

Re: Splash cymbal or not?????

I like how they sound and it's cool to hear how other drummers use them, but I don't feel the need or desire to have one.

It's one of those things you just want to boycott. Who's with me?

Re: Dying for help!

You say that once you get all the lugs at the same (or very similar) pitch, the overall pitch is higher than you'd like? If that's the case, just slowly lower each one so you can get them all down to...

Re: I am beginner, should I start with a single or double bass pedal?

When I started playing a few years ago, I really wanted a double pedal. So I got one. It was fun. About six months ago, I took it off the left pedal. I love playing a single now, and can't imagine...

Re: Eureka! Stop what you're doing and read up!

Bermuda posted this tip a while back, and I've been having fun with it when I'm in the mood for that super fat snare sound.

Re: Music triggering memories

That was really cool. I kinda wish the drums weren't there, though.

Re: Music triggering memories

Yes! Sometimes for me they don't trigger specific events... but emotions, or brief, insignificant memories. Like how the sun was filling my room with an orange glow, or the long stretches of rural...

Re: Just tried maple sticks for first time, love the way my drums sound

Same reason for me, I don't care much about the difference in sound as long as I love the feel. I'm planning on buying some big maple CDX sticks soon because I can't find them large enough. Most...

This is what I was thinking, and I'm a metal fan!

Re: Official Drummerworld NAMM SHOW 2012 Pictorial from SoCalMike

That's some pretty funky lookin' stuff from Mapex. MyDentity being custom stuff, I guess? It also looked like a "Jupiter" banner was in the background of one photo. Hmm...

Styles I listen to, styles I play to

Today I realized something that has been vaguely jumbling around in my mind recently. When I practice, I seem to enjoy a variety of styles: rock, country, funk, R&B, maybe some other stuff that I...

Re: High End kit with problems...***Update - John Good, Mr. DW, called me today"

I agree.

Anyhow, I've followed along this whole time, imagining myself reacting exactly as you did if it happened to me. I really don't like companies ignoring customers, or being dishonest with...

Re: Sale price of my Tama kit

For $800, you can get a similar kit and hardware new. I wouldn't go much higher than half of what you bought it for, regardless of condition.

Re: Buying Hardware

I use the Tama RoadPro stands. They're durable and affordable. I would go for two singles for better setup versatility.

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

Okay, thank you for the clarification. Based on your statement "they really do suck," I assumed you knew of an objective flaw that existed in Apple products. Now I understand that you were simply...

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

Do you mean have we gotten used to these symbols, or are you asking if we use them? I use those keys for shortcuts a bunch, like Command + H for hiding the current application. Whatever you do, don't...

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

I know, I'm a Mac guy, too, I just thought it was interesting you didn't like right clicking since I find it so useful. Yes, to add to Gruntersdad's list, I use "get info" all the time.

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

Can you give some unbiased, concrete examples? You presented a couple unfortunate scenarios, but that's hardly enough to condemn the entire company. I'm curious as to what makes Apple products so bad.

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

Interesting. I think right-clicking can be very helpful.

Re: Took a bite from an Apple

Apple knows how to make killer operating systems. I've recently become more familiar with Windows, and I don't hate it, I just like Mac OS more. Aside from functionality differences, Macs' graphical...
