Re: What was the first concert you went to????

Hard to top this as my starter concert. It's been so long ago but I think my first concert was the Beatles at Commiskey Park. We were seated by the 3rd base dugout where they came out. Despite good...

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

Last person in America to see the movie, but I liked it. Good job ;)
However, this is what really happened to the kid..."And you can get this exact cymbal at mycymbal.com "

Re: Whiplash Oscar win - will it spur sudden interest in "jazz drumming"?

Don't bother to shoot the messenger just cross file this in the unpopular opinion thread but sadly I don't think the movie can spur much sustained interest in jazz drumming. Jazz just isn't as...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

Guilty of the crime as charged, but that's what it's all about. I am so jealous of the fun you're having. You played well, the audience loved it, and everyone is having fun so don't go getting all...

Re: Two floor toms....

+1... That's exactly my experience, but as I never learn and after reading this thread I'll pull out my 16 inch FT again. And, just like my experiment with double pedals back in the closet it'll go...

Re: hands getting beat up

You sound like the kind of drummer who could use a set of drummers gloves and a video of your technique (you're doing something wrong if you're hurting yourself). Personally speaking my sticks are...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

The details of my life are quite inconsequential ... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant...

+1...just listen and play what you hear. This is pop-rock not high school orchestra. Treat it like that and you'll sound like my sister on the piano. (Not good)

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

First came the Beatles on Ed Sullivan 51 years ago and then there was the DC5 with Bits and Pieces and Glad All Over.
And then... I had a really cool older sister, or maybe my parents just made her...

Re: Kick sound horrible!

All great mic suggestions but if the drum itself doesn't really sound that great, go back to the basics. IMO it sounded tuned too low. To get it to go brighter and without the rumble I think you need...

Our Governor was going to send you a convoy of 60 national guard trucks. But it's been warming up here and we all felt the snow inside the trucks would melt before we got there. Instead we are...

Re: Chris Slade drumming for AC/DC again?

+1 on HTH so don't blame the drummer. At that point anything he did would really screw it up.

Re: end of guitar centre?

Yes, the OP's article correctly concentrates on GC's inability to pay it's debt. However IMO, even if it were financially possible to pay the debt, poor business management will probably kill any...

Re: I accept defeat.

So which is it? Are they tuned high, as you said, or did you get talked into the "jaws of death" by some "non-pro" engineer and now they don't sound right? C'mon man whose sound is it anyway? I...

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I have a high end e-kit and 2 acoustics, and sadly my E kit is in the closet collecting dust.

To me, gigging with it never felt or sounded right. Set-up was a pain. Practicing with it wasn't as...

Re: KISS

I'm no recording star or drum school guru. That said, IMHO I think you and all other band members need to be on the same page, no matter how long anyone has been playing. If you play rock, a high...
