Re: Have I damaged my mount system?

I removed the head, and the inner fixings are fine.

Where would I look for (and hopefully fix) a loose lug casing?

Have I damaged my mount system?

Annoyingly, I dropped my Gretsch New Classic 12" tom this morning. Thankfully, it was still in its hardcase, but now I think something might have come loose.

Upon inspection, everything seemed...

Re: My Album is on Kickstarter - Please take a look

I wonder if each of you could kindly give this project a share on your own Facebook and Twitter and any other social media outlet. Show me some of that drummer-to-drummer love!

Re: My Album is on Kickstarter - Please take a look

Well I'm 5% funded after the first day, that's a good start. If anybody has any advice on how to promote this I would really appreciate it, thanks.

Thanks a lot. I'm hopeful, but not particularly optimistic.

My Album is on Kickstarter - Please take a look

Hi all,

I'm delighted, and a little terrified, to announce that my album is now live on Kickstarter. Some of you may have seen some of my clips with the Jonathan Curtis Eclectic Band. Well now I...

Re: Possibly one of the best videos I've ever seen...

I seem to be on my own here, but I just can't watch this. To me, this is the worst side of drumming. I flicked through a lot of it, there were guys dropping their sticks, having to readjust their...

Re: Playing drums to music

I am assuming you're talking about playing along to existing songs, as opposed to playing with your own band as the drummer.

My suggestion would be to break it down into easy steps. First of all,...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

Thanks for the encouragement. This was certainly my original interpretation. However, I can't deny that some of the contradicting replies of here have made me consider it from on alternative...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

You're absolutely right. I've learned a lot from this episode, and as always, from the wise words on this forum. Negligent was the wrong word. From previous bands, I vowed to myself never to put up...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

You have all summed it up beautifully. I have apologised if I mistreated them, but we won't be working together again. While I regret the way it happened, I don't regret that it happened, as I really...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

Yes. this was always the problem. I probably could have handled it better. I didn't really know how to do it, it was a learn as I went, sort of thing. I can't afford to pay for rehearsals at the...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

I appreciate your point of view here. However, I did all the running about to rehearsals, taking them home. Neither of them drive, and as they live together, fifteen minutes walk from the rehearsal...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

Yes, I've learned that, too.

Thanks for the input, all. I'm sad, and I think it will be awkward a little (we teach at the same place), but ultimately, I had to do it to progress.

It was obvious to me, too. Alarm bells were ringing from day one, when the new bassplayer hadn't actually done any practice from one week to the next...

Re: I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

eclipseownzu, thanks for your reply. As it happens, they've just quit anyway, so I guess that's the dilemma sorted. They didn't like being told off for bailing on rehearsals all the time. It's a...

I Would Appreciate your Advice (bandmate related)

Hi all,

I've not posted for a while, so I hope you're all well.

I have a bit of a pickle. As some of you may know from the Your Playing section, I run my own band called the Jonathan Curtis...

Re: My day with Dave Weckl (large photo warning)

Yes, utterly bizarre. I can tell you from being up-close and personal, there is nothing to ridicule. He is a force of nature, and oozes confidence, ability, and style.

Re: My day with Dave Weckl (large photo warning)

Yeah, it was a great day. It was 255 for the day, plus travel costs and a 5am start. I don't know how that translates to other currencies, but I'd pay it again.

Still can't quite believe it to be...
