Re: Methods for feeling or visualizing time?

I do that too, but always saw it as a sort of river or stream I'm following.

Re: Ever forgotten your hihat clutch?

Can't borrow one from another drummer there? There's always duct-tape!

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

I don't get cats who say they can't solo. If you can groove, literally you can keep doing that, maybe put a few more fills than you would with the band, if you're confident, maybe displace some...

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

Hey Pal, if you are close enough to Livermore, inland a bit from the bay, there's a cool jam on Wed I can introduce you to. It would be nice to have some other good drummers there. Super laid back...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

You guys might appreciate this one:

We got paid for a charity show a few weeks ago when we expected not to. The venue/organizer insisted after our set! I put my portion right back in the...

Re: Hi hat cymbal seat?

Skew on the bottom cymbal also makes it "easier" to get a washy sound as the pies touch sooner as you close them. But mostly, it's the lock thing mentioned.

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

Take anything paid, evaluate anything unpaid for potential gains. If it's a charity, I'll usually be a "yes".

Re: Warning, imminent British invasion of New Jersey & New Orleans!

Andy, when folks in PA bring out the good paper, you're a very special guest. I'll bet he's making sure to save you the really soft corn cobs for your out-house use as well.

Re: Being offered a position you don't really want, but could be an experience?

Sludge, doom, what have you. It's really slow kinda metal type stuff. Heavy distortion, super low BPMs. May or may not include cookie monster singing.

Re: Being offered a position you don't really want, but could be an experience?

Man, that stuff is really slow. I saw the oakland thing and love me some sludge so almost had an idea of ringing them, but that's just too sludgy even for me. I'd need to break that up with some...

Re: The worst gig of my life

The good news is, it gets easier.

When I was new to drumming, I needed everything to be just so or I wouldn't play well. The longer I've been playing, the easier it is to just sit down and play...

Re: The order of things....

Thing is, nobody but the drummer really knows the difference. Cymbals are a lot more noticeable in terms of audience impact. People know when they like a snare sound, but don't even tend to notice...

Re: Injury stories while drumming

I've cut myself a few times in the excitement of a show, knuckles on rims, callous opened up, stick breaks and sharp part hits you... It's always weird for me because I never feel it when the...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I hate this so much. And it goes both ways. If you're next, have all your cymbals on the stands, the drums out and ready to move... If you're getting off stage, take everything as it is all setup...

Re: The worst gig of my life

If you can't play whatever is in front of you and make it sound good, you don't sound good. If you aren't creative enough to change your parts so that they work on a 4, 3, or even 2 piece, you're...

Re: Would you buy this?

Is that really long or really wide across? Different companies specify differently. Either way, it's weird. I doubt it will sound great.

Re: Dumb question about push/pull

If you're doing fast shuffles on one hand, you're probably already doing a form of push pull to get them in time.

I typically use it for situations like fast 8ths or 16ths with one hand. There's...

Re: WERE DO I START??? *JAZZ DRUMMING*

So, you don't know where to start, and you don't want a teacher to tell you where to start, and you also just saw whiplash so you want to be one of the greats in the world of jazz drumming.

Re: Toms on the Backbeat

I mean, as far as really old history, there were toms before there were snare drums. Assuming some caveman was able to play by happenstance in 4 and accented the right places...

I would work on my reading skills. Get a few books, and practice sight reading lines from them with your hands and feet. Obviously, you're a bit limited, but you can never have too much practice...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

Trying to figure it out ahead of time never works. Just play in the spaces you can fit.

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

TL:DW

Basically, the drum sounds and isolation are more important than the drum performance.

Again, what a moron. And did he actually say that all drummers should be able to do rim-shot snare...
