Re: First studio drum experience - Advice?

Is this the first time you recorded your drumming? If yes then it's normal to be confronted with imperfections that you don't hear while you're playing. Record yourself more often and it will for...

Re: Practicing on an electric kit....

100% agree.

I traded in my e-kit when I got my a-kit and regret it now. It gives you much more practice time. If you can afford to have both, it's perfect.

I used to have a TD4KX (all mesh)...

Re: Acoustic Foam

The idea is to build a room inside the room. Double wall, double ceiling, double door, ideally a double floor with shock absorbing material between them. If your room is frigging small, it will be...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Notwithstanding his abilities, I just can't see how he can be so utterly uninterested as to not rehearse the song and just think he can wing it while it does not even remotely look like the original...

Re: Carmine Appice Lobbies For Led Zeppelin Drum Spot

Jeez he doesn't even have a clue of the signature beat of the chorus. Totally unprepared.

Re: Great car for a drummer

These are much better imho: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Touran
Smaller than a Touareg on the outside, much bigger inside. That's because VW slightly bent the spacetime in the boot,...

Re: Practice to Mastery?

Mastery in the end is up to yourself. It's your drumming, not anyone else's. How satisfied are you when you listen back to the recording?
Be complacent and you'll race through the exercise book and...

Re: Taking kick pedals on a plane

I'm sure Al Q et al don't need us for clever ideas on how to satisfy the voices in their heads.

I was told by one airline taking a cymbal as hand luggage is ok. I would guess a pedal or parts of...

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

I see what you mean, but life's too short to contamplate your own shortcomings... Look at the bright side. Youtube allows you to steal those nuances and become a better drummer :)

Re: ALBUMS THAT HAD AN LASTING IMPACT ON YOUR DRUMMING

Yep! Replace Genesis by RHCP - Blood Sugar Sex Magik and there's my list.

I could add
Sting - Ten Summoner's Tales
Deep Purple - Live In Japan

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

I don't think determining why human time is better is an objective by itself. I lost my pink glasses long ago. The objective is to make a lot of money with that knowledge.

Re: Now a morning drummer

I don't want to go off topic, but.... 4:30 am, if awake, is a time for very different things. No way to sneak out of bed and see my girlfriend with the 10", 12" and 16" boobs!

Re: Independence vs learning set patterns

Interesting subject to meditate.
From my modest level I don't think a drummer ever reaches the stage of 4 limbs can just do whatever at the same time. Octopuses have pieces of brain in each limb...

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

Re: anyone have an older stage custom with a rattle?

I presume you checked all the nuts around the mount system are very tight? One untight nut made my sc rattle some time ago.

Re: It's hard to start a band, when you're a Drummer

Look at what you wrote. Turn it the other way around. Now you see the bright side. You have ideas for songs in your head. You can hum them. Now all you need is a guitarist (or bagpipeist or anyone...

Re: Shoes and Gloves

Yeah barefoot is a little weird. It's like those drummers that can't play with a shirt on :)

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

I do hope that, between being a will-less, hot, drumming (but not very well) sex toy, and no longer giving a shit (or some animal's arse as they say in Wales) about what other people think, there is...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

These things are delicate hey... If you say I don't like female athletes because they don't run as fast as male ones, I don't know if one should call it sexist but st least it's based on facts.
