Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

I get what your saying Dr. Watso and I have been guilty of pressing that red button unnecessarily, especially when I was much younger! A majority of the music I play in one band could...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Well at least she attempted to count it off! :) When the question of tempo has come up in one of the bands I play in, I have ask the lead singer to count it off in the tempo he feels comfortable with...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Although it's true that restricting choices forces creativity, exercising voices choice, is in itself, a creative move. It's how it's presented within the music that matters, not the mechanism...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Agreed 100%! Every time this topic has come up on here, I have always felt this the best way to handle it on stage. As someone else said earlier, work on temp at rehearsals, hopefully this will carry...

Re: Losing a Cymbal Wingnut at Tangelwood Live

Although the sound quality is rough by today's standards, this is a great vintage 1970 show of what the original Chicago band was and not what most think of when their name is mentioned. They were...

Re: Danny Seraphine

I am sure I was one of the few who commented in the old thread.....Danny (besides my dad) is. by far my greatest influence and my favorite drummer of all time. I finally got a chance to talk with him...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

This wasn't directed at you specifically and I should have gone with my first instinct which was to not even comment. Yes, I have seen many creative drummers play on minimal kits and make wonderful...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

This statement could also potentially lead to the whole big kit vs. small kit thing. That is, a drummer who doesn't have a "full accompaniment of drums" is like an artist who doesn't have all of the...

Re: What would happen if...

As someone who has spent most all of my career in hospitality management, I can attest that profit margins are slim as a general rule. Of course there are always exceptions and in the interest of...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Kind of makes me happy that I am blissfully ignorant about all of this time signature debate! I am with him, I just sit down and hit things; most times it works out pretty well!

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

Sorry you don't see/agree with my point of view. Perhaps it is different where you are or the places you play. I am mostly speaking of bar gigs, private parties, wedding receptions, etc., which is...

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

This should probably go in the Unpopular Drummer's Opinion thread but, here goes. As someone who has been on both sides of the band thing for many years, that is, as management that hires bands and...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I like the song until it gets to that part........they definitely could have left that out!! I agree though, they both have done some amazing work. Like so many others who died way too young, it...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

With all due respect to both musical legends, I don't think either one of them had gotten to the methadone stage yet!

Little Feat, Waiting For Columbus- Ritchie Heyward; always tasty playing
Frampton Comes Alive- not sure who the drummer was
Agree with...

Re: Tuning to pitches...yes? no?

Yep, this is the way I have always done it regardless of the number of toms I use. I wouldn't know a pitch pipe from a bong pipe; well that was a little extreme, I did grow up in the '60's and early...

Well, well over my head and ability to try and even count it, much less ever think I could learn to play it, but to my untrained ears........some of it sounds like a beginner just starting out....

Re: The disconnect between musicians perspectives and audience perspective

Kind of my thoughts exactly. What is a little puzzling to me is, as inappropriate and over the top his playing was (not to mention all the things you said), he obviously has played enough to develop...

Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

Larry, I am a little surprised to see you list Danny as an influence. (He is by far the biggest influence on me!). I am not trying to read too much into your past post so please forgive my...
