Re: A most controversial position

It's as they said. Bass was right foot, then the low-hat was raised, then people just kept adding toms. First the floor tom to the right (so they could both be easily be played with the right -...

Re: Wedding/Function Band Do's and Don't's

Arrive early, especially if you're the drummer; you need to make sure you get some space.

Re: Good video for setting up drumset?

As far as I can tell, a lot of the tuning process is based on personal preference. The only thing that you need to remember is that the smaller ones should sound higher and the bigger ones should...

Re: Crazy Kits=Post em here

A conversation about crazy drumkits is not complete without giving the Trixon speedfire a mention.

Re: Skrillex for Drummers

As far as I can tell, electronic music doesn't involve a lot of talent but they try to cover that up with the rhythm section.
Me, I prefer actual music, like the Foo Fighters.

Re: Is it late for me? (Drum starter)

Not at all, although you might have small regrets not starting earlier (I do, and I started at 15).

Re: Electric kit over Acoustic for improvement?

I still find that they don't have the same feel and the same realism... so I don't use them instead of real drum sounds most of the time.
They would be standard for techno/electro/dubstep, so if...

Re: How does gravity affect drum tone

I imagine gravity would affect the way the stick moves in your hand, and perhaps the vibration (sound waves are ALWAYS in a medium made of matter, which is usually affected by gravity).

Re: Open-Handed Drumming

I find that, despite the snare and bass being interrelated, it's easier to have them on different sides of the body, because then it's easier to come up with more complex grooves; if they're both on...

Re: Learning by listening

When I get to fast tom fills I just get as close as I can and not worry about it too much. Different makes the audience think you're cool; you do things your own way.

Re: Drummers and Comedians - Timing

It's Rowan Atkinson, the actor for Mr. Bean. I think it was several pre-recorded tracks that were played when appropriate.

Re: how do you feel?

I agree with Larry, right up to the point I actually start playing, which does kind of get annoying.

Re: Two Questions

Re: Your top 5 non-standard additions to a kit

Looking at this thread it sounds pretty standard but I keep a small bongo/djembe held between my legs, the stool and the snare.

Setup times

I was wondering how long it would take the average drummer to setup my drumkit.
In terms of drums I have a snare, a single pedal kick and 2 toms (1 up, 1 down), all of which are Pearl.
In terms of...

Re: 5 piece tom configuration

I found that using a 1 up 1 down instead of 2 up 1 down means I do a lot more of my fills on the snare or cymbals. I don't know about 1 up 2 down though.

Re: Where do you keep your time?

It depends on the music; for rock and metal I use my right hand, for more complicated things I use the left foot, and for a lot of the stuff I'm learning in my lessons I have to use the right foot to...

Re: The Old Drummers or the New Drummers?

I prefer the new drumming; stuff by Dominic Howard, Dave Grohl and Tre Cool is pretty good. I believe it's because the newer drumming builds on that of the past and creates interesting stuff to play...

Re: Advice for an audition?

If you think "I probably won't get the part, but I'm happy I tried" then you might be able to relax. If you worry too much about failing then you will fail.
