Re: Too Old To Seriously Take Up Drumming?

There use to be this fella with CP that posted as i recollect and he was a solid player. We are all lifelong leaners so why not add a musical instrument-some add a language. I started at ten years of...

Re: Don't do that!

I place drinks on speakers, tables, etc. and they still eventually vibrate off the table and stain my carpet. Need a screw on drink caddy like stick one. Or you can get one of those drink hats with...

Re: Buying First Drum Kit

You can buy a Sonor Safari four piece drum kit (it takes up little space and sounds remarkably good) for $380-400 then take the other half of your 800 and buy some good hi-hats and a nice ride. Maybe...

Re: I'm getting into this now

Man that is some unbelievable action on that double bass-weird twisting move. I note a lot of the blasters and speed guys hold their sticks on the ends, rather near the fulcrum. I have to admit I'm...

Re: Lifting weights and drumming

Re: Trad or matched? completely torn here

Funny the comparison of Peart. It is like watching two speakers give the same basic speech but one is monotone and methodical and does an excellent job of covering all the salient points appealing...

Re: Trad or matched? completely torn here

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

Oh Good, Thanks Dr. Watso for the clarification related to caddy and larry. I thought we were going to have to organize an "intervention". But now it makes sense. Just like the long list of invective...

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

Holy moley. I thought larry and caddy were just kiddin' around but there is apparently some real animosity here. I didn't think they allowed personal attacks on here? Well anyways it is none of my...

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

I notice that some people will say things online they normally won't face to face. I'm pretty much what you see is what you get (often too honest for my own good as from my earlier post). I like to...

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

I just use a moniker because everyone else does. I use one on Wikipedia (actually the same moniker) and various forums and blogs too. True we may not know the whole story with Ian but I usually try...

Re: Why do folks use "handles" on a musician forum instead of their real name?

I don't know but I about had a brain hemorrhoid tryin' to think of a decent moniker for a drum forum. "GetAgrippa" seemed like a natural. And it has so many different meanings. LOL.

Re: Tama Starclassic Birch or Pearl Masters Studio Birch

If it were a music store on layaway then I'd be ticked if they sold it out from under me-and doubtful they would. But at a pawn shop those rules don't apply. It's all about the dickering. The idiot...

Re: Can I have your review opinions?

Any journalist who would criticize the Allman Brother's Band of the 70's was blind and tone deaf. I saw them and they blew me away. Great jams. I am a scientist by trade so criticism is something you...
