Re: Do you plan your fills?

When writing original music do all of your experimenting during the compositional phase of writing. If you do the same fill every time while writing the song your band mates will expect that fill...

Re: Is live music dead?

I think the number of venues may be far less than they were when I started gigging 10-15 years ago, but the crowds are actually better. In my town there is a great live music venue that has local and...

Re: Double bill - a first for me - what could possibly go wrong?

I have actually done this before and trust me, with the exception of those people there to watch you, nobody will even notice. The one time I played a double bill it was with a house kit so I didn't...

Re: Rock albums with modern production and a great vintage drum sound

Listen to Bullhead by the Melvins.

It pretty much has to be music with some space in it. Anything with blast beats or double bass need to be more accurate and tend to have a more processed,...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

I loved when we would play corporate gigs or parties and some drunk guy would want to play. Gave me a chance to get a beer and take a break. I would usually let them go for a few songs. The crowd...

Re: Alan Dawson: How Do You Sound? vs How Do You Look?

I am absolutely shocked to hear a professional drummer say that the playing on a record is a better measure of a drummer than their live performance. I could absolutely care less what a drummer can...

Re: Anika Nilles

I am surprised every time I see one of her videos at how, well, old her music sounds. She is a girl in, I will assume, her early 20's yet she writes and plays music that sounds like it was written by...

Re: This forum, meeting each other

I was actually thinking about this the other day. I am in two bands that play gigs all over the northeast and have played with hundreds of different bands in the last few years. It seems to me I...

Re: Going to shows of a band you got rejected from a good idea?

I am going to assume that you like, and obviously know, their music. With that in mind go check out the show. There might be other bands on the bill that you can network with as well. I go to a ton...

Re: A few recording questions

I will definitely disagree with you. There are people who can get professional sounds out of two cans and a string, these kids are not them. My advice is not to worry so much about the mechanics of...

Re: A few recording questions

Dude, it doesn't have to be perfect. If you are expecting a professional sound out of this you are going to be disappointed. Let the toms ring, let the instruments bleed over into each other, make...

Re: That Tama Rockstar snare for 50 bucks

I have one from the Rockstar kit I bought some years ago and I have never really cared for it. I have kept it all these years but I rarely ever play it. Its a hard thing to pinpoint but the drum has...

Re: Funny recording experience

I have moved a snare hit or two in my days of recording. It is so much cleaner than re-recording an entire part for one hit. Unless you are recording live in a non-iso situation where your snare hit...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

Re: Standing up while playing

The Butthole Surfers has two drummers who played standing up. It was definitely different, but it added to the overall hallucinatory feeling of one of their shows.

Re: Tips to help me get in a good quality functions band.

Janes Addiction - Nothings Shocking. The first album I remember really listening to the drums. Some great non-linear playing by Perkins.

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

You need to go into these negotiations the same way you would prepare for a tour. As a band you should sit down and itemize everything. Gas, food, lodging, vehicle wear and tear, equipment wear and...

Re: Where's the best place to find a drummer for my band?

Your best bet is networking. Go to where the drummers are. Local gigs, music stores, rehersal spaces. I have never had much luck with answering ads. Most of my gigs have come from other musicians...
