Re: Help with my technique and mental pulse

There is tremendous value in using a metronome for practicing and I'll bet you used one in your violin wrangling days. Over time, the pulse is internalized and you'll have a better innate feel for...

Re: Liveliness in playing

Working with Tobis Ralph and Pat Mastelotto last week was a great study in contrast.

Watching Pat play is like watching Animal in the Muppets. He is all over the kit, big motions, great groove /...

Re: Playing Out for the First Time in 40 Years!

Re: SonorMuseum Registering

Don't know if it will help, but if you wish I can post a message on the Museum board to see if there has been some glitch. Let me know.

Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

Everyone here has done a great job describing their perspectives for all the folks mentioned. The loss of each person named in this thread made our musical world a poorer place.

I would like to...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Sweet score Wildbill!

In a band I was in 40 years ago, our guitarist had a Gretsch Chet Atkins Tennessean. It was a beautiful looking AND sounding axe. He took a lot of stick for having a...

Re: playing along with stuff

Hi Lennythecat:

Welcome to DW!

I presume you mean acoustic drums. When I'm playing along using those, like Dr. Watso, I'll use my iPod but I'll jack it into my Simmons DA200S drum amp and use...

Re: Where do you draw the line with Frankenstein?

Apparently Bill Rieflin, one of three drummers (incuding the estimable Gavin Harrison and Pat Mastelotto) in the new version of King Crimson isn't concerned about his Frankenstein kit!

Re: Discouragement for Chops I Don't Have

Indeed this has been an excellent discussion!

At the level and the type of gigs the majority of us play, money is made with the right foot (or left foot for the sinister ones!). Give the folks a...

Re: Portnoy and the Winery Dogs

I don't follow this band. I am not a fan of any of the bands these guys have been in. I don't have any ill will towards any of them. They are just not my cup of tea.

That said, groups are in a...

Re: Did Bill Bruford stop practicing for a while

Good insight on this period from the man himself in his autobiography. Much of this could be due to Robert Fripp demanding that BB pretty much forget everything he had done before.

I agree with Tamadrm to some extent: two totally different experiences and you may or may not like what you have to give up. I will say as an owner of both that when given a choice, I'll play my...
