Crikey Mitch, that's not great news and I'm very sorry to hear it. All my very best wishes to you, my friend.

Re: Get better Andy!

Oh phew - I knew that if sheer bloody-mindedness had anything to do with it, you'd make a remarkable recovery. And when you think about it, practice-pad work is probably the least painful...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Yes, absolutely - but one of the points I was making was that I was "encouraged" to be something I wasn't. I learned to be that something, and as an adult, it was very difficult to unlearn it. Your...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

James and I were separated at birth.

I've said it a bazillion times before, and I say it again with even more vehemence: I was born to be a drummer. Alas, in my youth I was contaminated with...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Larry, I haven't been on here for, like, ages, but did I ever tell you that I love you? (I know I did, but I love you even more now.) I'd replace "Dad" with "Mum", obviously :)

Re: Dark Classical Music, with lots o' percussion

No there isn't, but there's a considerable amount of string-playing that sounds percussive.

Re: Dark Classical Music, with lots o' percussion

Some truly excellent suggestions here. I'm going to throw in a curved ball and suggest Vivaldi, and specifically the Four Seasons which everybody thinks they're sick to death of, through having had...

Re: London Drum Show

I admit to having a slight vested interest in favour of UKDS versus LDS, but I would much prefer that Drumming should be the overall winner.

Was it Olympia again? The acoustics are AWFUL there. ...

Nope, never tried it, but if I saw an advert for it round here I'd sign up like a shot!

Re: Despondent with lesson

You SO have.



Most of us! It's astonishing how much difference a change in movement or in sound can make, and it can really knock you sideways. Now you know this, you'll be more prepared...

I am a former world champion of Putting Pressure On Oneself.

Of course you want to be good. Why on earth would you bother even learning to play drums if you didn't want to be good? And in order...

Re: My UK trip, Day 2 at Andy's

You really did hit the jackpot staying with Andy and Yvonne, Larry. Not only are they wonderful, funny, warm people but they live in what I consider to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. ...

Re: Beginner - easy songs are freaking hard!

You're doing it right! Fills are the icing on the caek, NOT the caek itself, but they do make the caek look and taste better.

Re: Beginner - easy songs are freaking hard!

Re: Beginner - easy songs are freaking hard!

There are apps that you can load your music on to, which allow you to change the tempo. You can then play along to a real song at a speed that is comfortable and achievable for you. You can also...

Re: UK trip part 2: My stay with Andy

The area around where Andy lives is stunningly and exceptionally beautiful - I think it may have some sort of designation to that effect. Certainly, the UK isn't all like that, but when you're on...

Re: Constant frustration/disappointment with music

Re: Constant frustration/disappointment with music

I do feel for you.

This thread has loads of replies and I haven't read all of them so I apologise if I'm repeating anything that has already been suggested, but here goes anyway:
