Re: First use of a click

Apparently Carl Stalling invented the click track. He's the guy who wrote all that insanely complicated music for the great old Warner Bros cartoons (Bugs Bunny etc.)

Re: Sensitive drummer?

Ah, the joy of validation that you can fake your way through a gig! Feels great, doesn't it?

Congrats, and pat yourself on the back for that one.

Re: Better than the original??.....Noooooo!!!!!!

Sounds like he was just trying to wind you up. I can't imagine any sober, respectable musician saying that sort of thing without tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Re: Drum Shell History Questions

Except sometimes you can indeed tell, even on supposedly "best ply drums." In the mid-early 1980s I bought a new 10 inch tom to expand my early-early 1980s Gretsch kit, and it's obvious by looking...

Re: Staccato snare drum 7x14

I've got an old Staccato kit. The snare is probably that size. I like my batter heads tight, but when I cranked up the tension on the Staccato snare the top of the shell actually bent inwards all...

Re: Drums and allergies

Allergies are completely mysterious. Nobody knows how to prevent them. Allergy shots don’t work. Modern medicine has failed on this problem.

Benadryl (the actual drug is diphenhydramine) is...

Just go for it, man!

I’ve tried it a few times. The basics (speed up hands while slowing down feet and vice versa) aren’t that hard; it’s doing it smoothly and evenly that gets pretty tricky.

Re: thomas lang double stroke speed up/slow down

I’ve seen him do that, er, trick? effect? display? on a view vids. It’s nothing special, pattern-wise: he’s just doing singles with his hands and singles with his feet. (Or is it doubles? I can't...

Re: How are YOU doing YOUR Moeller technique?

I definitely use fingers. One of my exercises for practicing Moeller is to play constant 16th notes (basically as ghost notes) on the snare with finger technique, and then use the Moeller whipping...

Re: Picking a situationally appropriate kit

I bought a whole kit just to get the 16 inch bass drum. Okay, so the kit (low-end from a big-name brand) is basically junk except for the kick, which seems to have better hardware on it than the...

Re: Hi-Hat Stepping (Lift & Close on every beat)

Practice. And then practice some more.

To start, play the money beat: 8th notes on the ride, kick on 1 and 3, and snare on 2 and 4.

Use a metronome, and go reeeeeeealy slowly as you add...

Re: Wrist pain while practicing rudiments. (Please help!)

Don’t try to self-diagnose: you might be way off and end up treating yourself in a way that makes it worse.

Wrist pains may be carpal tunnel syndrome, or they could be something completely...

Re: Can you be a gigging drummer without a drum kit?

Yeah, what he said.

If you really only think that you’ll gig every 3 or 4 months, then just rent a kit when you need it. It should be fairly cheap.

As far as storage space, you can stack...

Re: What's the best way to play backing tracks live?

So about using an Ipod for a click (possibly also with backing tracks):

One annoying thing about the way Ipods play songs is that there doesn’t seem to be a play-1-song-and-then-stop option. So...

Re: Craigslist Ad, Stencil Set?

The tom mounts definitely look like Pearl. They’re stylistically very much in line with 1980’s Pearl cymbal stands I’ve still got hanging around.

The bass drum legs also look very much like...

Re: Got a theater gig for this summer... looks like fun!

Ah, now it makes sense. I was never in deep enough to learn all the callbacks.

But I did play “Time Warp” a few million times back in the day with a top-40 band.

Re: Something that got me thinking

Well, for a lot of drum gear, I would agree with you: hype and marketing can trump facts and sonics.

But back in the day I picked up a used 1960s Ludwig Black Beauty dirt cheap, and once I got...
