Re: Can't seem to play fast

I commend you and I wish more people were as humble as you.

It's bloody annoying when some little turd is trying to show off their "great chops" in a shop, making a racket that spoils it for staff...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

Being a slapdash tuner I've always found that good quality drums are more forgiving of my tuning "sins" than cheapos, in that there are more good sounds you can get from them.

Re: S****y albums done by great bands..

True and well said, 8. It brings is back to what a few have been saying about The Beatles's weakest albums:

Re: S****y albums done by great bands..

No one can be at the top of their game all the time, eh?

Many bands start out brilliant but lose the magic through commercial pressure or aspirations. The Tubes. ELP (as mentioned). Genesis....

Re: Neil Peart

8Mile will like this but I agree that Neil is a fantastic drummer. Absolutely brilliant. I would love to have a tenth of his skills. He also seems highly intelligent and in every interview I've seen...

Re: Terri Lyne Carrington: The Spiritual Journey of Being Creative

Nice. Playing an instrument is surely character building!

Still, there's plenty who just want to party, seek status or pay the bills.

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

I'd like to have the latest Rolands or Yammies but I don't have the space to set them up, given that my acoustic kit already rules my lounge room.

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

Back in the day I had a stick bag hanging from the floor tom lugs. I didn't have a floor tom with the Mabels and it was inconvenient. Usually I'd leave my hand bag next to the throne and have some...

Re: Knowing yourself - sometimes it's -------------

It's a funny old world when a mature and reasonable exchange between two intelligent adults is noteworthy.

Re: Chris Slade drumming for AC/DC again?

Sounds like a good idea. Chris is an excellent drummer. In my 20s I was a big fan of his playing with Manfred Mann. Here he is playing a five time with aplomb with MM:...

Re: Why do blues bands want "rock & roll" drummers?

Re: Before I just jump in & do this ------

I see your point. I was thinking that if we were singers you'd ask them to sing a song so I was thinking along those lines.

It looks like Yolanda has some work to do (whether "all levels of player" can even try to keep up with Mme Maestro is another matter).

Another option would be "make up a 90 second snare drum...

Re: A few recording questions

Focus on performance. If the spirit, vibe and sound of the music being played is good then it will shine through as per Billy Ray's comment.

Re: Brain fart

Yes, the drum buildup was a tad fast and the guitarist overcompensated and rushed the next arpeggio. That particular timing is deceptive. The last part of the buildup seems to come at you faster than...

In the 70s I had to do a couple of mercy dashes for a missing snare. I'd learned my lesson from then on until the drummer of an ex-band was unavailable for the final of a band competition and, having...

I've met Wy Yung and Bermuda in Sydney a few years ago. and the 2013 crew on Henri's list at the LDS. I've met mostly people from the northern hemisphere and only one Aussie member.

Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

No drama here, either.

The biggest payout of a drummer I've seen was by Dweezil Zappa of his criminally underrated drummer Joe Travers who had a brain freeze and flubbed a simple cue.
