Re: Endings

Same here. I have trouble reading the structure of what the other players are doing and finding the right time to actually stop.


I also think they are cheesy, but maybe because I suck at it??

Re: Drumming dreams

Never drums but I dream I was on stage with The Stones playing bass.

The show was seconds away from starting and I said to myself, "WTF dude....you don't know how to play guitar!"

I've had...

Re: Timing test

753 trying to play the off beats

It didn't like double time.

It still stayed in the 800s when I was playing every beat early

It took 5 tries to score a zero

Re: Timing test

That was my first thought. You are listening to the click of the keyboard not knowing exactly when it's registering. I would have preferred if the keyboard triggered a drum sound.

My only attempt...

Re: Zero practice gig..............

Depends on the genre. You will be fine.

My first gig ever was a show up and play thing. I never even met the band (I got it through a friend)

I had played with a 3 piece R&R garage band for a...

Re: Advice please?

Family counseling.

This is simply a family/drama issue not related to music at all.




Not me. I try to avoid making judgments based on only one side of the story. This is a clear case of,...

Re: The kind of night that makes you wonder why you even bother

IMO, you should roll with everything.

Why choose to be down about anything? It would be great if we had control over everything, but you only have control over one person.

It is a simple but...

Re: Preparing for the first gig

Hence, no need for microphones on the drums. :)

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Does the label on the tom head (showing under the rim by the lug) bother you? :)

I have the opposite of OCD. I don't care about anything.

Re: How tense are you when you play?

If I'm just playing drums, I'm extremely comfortable. IMO, it's really hard to screw up the drums noticeably (to regular people).

When I'm also triggering the backing tracks, it sometimes take the...

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

If I was in charge of branding drums, I'd choose a different looking lug that would be obvious without even seeing the brand name written.....like Nike

Put them at an angle or make them the shape...

Re: human drummers and fractals

I just popped in to see what a fractal was.

I found it very interesting.

Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

1) Now they go out earlier, spend $100 on dinner and watch a band.
2) I prefer the new days.
3) The internet doesn't detract from my playing time, it just gives me a break so I don't get burned out...

Re: How do I know if I will stick with drums? Advice please.

Any drummer can jam on the piano a bit.

Just have your mates play in in sharp/flat keys and stay on the black keys :)

Re: How do I know if I will stick with drums? Advice please.

Much respect to you for learning different instruments. I think you will understand music 10X more than a single instrument player.


You can get a used off brand kit for $100.

You can get a...

Re: When disaster strikes: Your opinion

My drums or any other musical gear are nowhere close to important to me and I don't have any family heirlooms or pets.

I'm grabbing my phone, my cash and my (2) guns. I'd take the guns just to be...

Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

This internet fad is pretty impressive. :)

And, since maybe 8 years ago, you can find out anything you want to know from your damn cell phone.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I finally watched it. I only made it maybe 1/3 of the way in, to the part where he was breaking up with his girlfriend.

It was just too lame from the start.

I do have two questions.

1) When...

Re: Should I Do It?

If a couple/few hours of playing affects his exam, he should have paid more attention to his studies during the semester :)

100 people might mean 40 girls. I'd be there in a heartbeat with the E...

Re: What's your process for coming up with drum grooves for songs?

It's good to know that I am soulful!!
