Re: Snare Rim Shot Issue

A creeping snare stand is usually the result of the ubiquitous offset snare basket (old Buck Rogers design) and playing hard. Basically, the snare doesn't sit centered over the base, and can cause...

Re: Playing Live With a Metronome

I'm guessing by metronome you mean 'a click' of some type.

It depends on the gig, or song at hand. On stage, I use a click about 75% of the time, but strictly to stay in synch with video/audio on...

Re: Copper Phonic Video Demo

The drum does have some characteristics of each of its 3 brothers - Supra, Black Beauty and Bronze Supra - but I would say it's more standard Supra than anything else. Still, it's not completely that...

Re: Les DeMerle: How Did You Get Your Break?

Love Les, the consummate busy drummer. This goes back 40 years, but among many musicians, the joke was 'the Les DeMerle, the better!'

Saw him at the Chicago Show a few years ago and he played his...

Yeah, not minimalist or particularly interesting, but he does it well!

Re: Getting Gigs - Price Quotes

Red flags would be great! But sometimes there aren't any. Sometimes things just change, and it's unforeseen by any of the involved parties. I'm sure we've all made some sort of commitment, and had to...

Re: Getting Gigs - Price Quotes

If another band came in for less, you can't blame the lady. Don't we all want to save money where possible?

Of course, when you're the one making the money, it's a little different, eh? :)

It's...

Re: Getting Gigs - Price Quotes

Every situation is different, and your guy may not have done anything wrong at all in this case. There's nothing wrong with a littler negotiation on either/both parts.

Also, it's hard to know if...

A sticky is fine, except what happens when the answer to a question shifts or becomes obsolete over time? Do we rely on the 'experts' to monitor and make updates?

It's like a FAQ, which is only...

Re: Successful Songs in Set?

Depending what time the first set is, that may be a sensible approach.

One of my bands has a regular, early gig on one Saturday a month. The first set starts at 5pm (!) and people are generally...

Re: Successful Songs in Set?

Unless you're playing a dinner set, assume that people might dance. Therefore, every song should be familiar and danceable, or sound familiar and danceable. Energy is always good whether people are...

Re: Novak moves to Sakae.

It's not a secret (anymore) that Sakae was making Yamaha's top-of-the-line (Japanese) shells, and the companies parted ways just a few years ago. Some artists who loved their Yamahas undoubtedly felt...

Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

I don't know the method employed, but it's really not that fast. I do like Dr_Watso's rrLl suggestion though. It's all about the end, not the means to the end.

Re: Radar Love (Golden Earring) ... Fast shuffle!

Not one-handed, it's both hands on the snare in the verses. Then hat/snare in the b-section and choruses.

Here's a cleaned-up version of the original. :)

Re: mounting Roland SPD SX on kick drum

The simplest way to position the pad where you want it, and not modify the kick, is to use a sturdy boom cymbal stand with this clamp & plate:

Re: No Respect

TV coverage of any player usually depends on how camera-friendly they are. If a player looks bored, they probably won't get much screen time (unless they also happen to be singing lead.) Also...

Re: No Respect

That perception may have something to do with the lack of a melodic factor, but I find that most people are quite amazed by the ability to use 4 limbs at once, which I find quite natural. Truly, it's...

Re: No Respect

I don't think it's just about drummers, jabs and jibes are made about singers, bass players, guitar players, and the proverbial trombone player with a beeper. I certainly don't take any of it...

Re: Difficult band members

Despite what I said earlier, there may be a point where being around certain people just eats you up. When that begins to rival the joy of making music, then it's time to part ways.

Re: Difficult band members

I wouldn't worry so much about the differences, unless someone is being way out of line. As long as you enjoy making music with them, just stick it out. And if you have to have a different dynamic...
