Re: groove vs chops?

No... you could have well developed technique in some areas, but you might lack certain types of chops (the technical ability to manipulate time and touch in particular ways, aside from matters of...

I guess that's enough internet for me today.

Re: Is it just me?

Though I use some more cutting cymbals for heavier music at times, I have a K Custom Dark ride that's the most versatile cymbal I own. It cuts through any bar band gig I've played (metal, hard rock,...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

But wouldn't a China cymbal typically be out of place in traditional Chicago blues?

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

I'd like to have seen Max Roach with 8 toms.

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Often when orchestrating stuff for a substantially restricted set of voices; you'd be orchestrating very different fills (if we're even putting a fill in the same place), no? With different...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Whatever about that; like I said, he was making a consistent argument, not a contradictory one. Here was our exchange:

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

I'd say it has a lot to do with the time spent on a particular thing/set of things. Practically speaking - in the real world; the size of a kit will tend to affect how someone approaches this. If one...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

His argument was not "you're thinking too much" full stop.

He is saying that you're thinking too much about a thing (the specific gear you play), when the thinking would be better spent on...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Nobody disputes the bolded.

However while one can still do everything you can already do on a smaller kit, one may not necessarily be spending as much time with the smaller kit and learning to...

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

There's a little truth to virtually everything. Even the most grade-A level BS has grains of truth that help it stick. That article reaches very poor standards of it though.

Re: My sense of time and accuracy sucks. How to practice?

I'm back in the game after a layoff - I can still sight-read and play any of my old stuff in a rough manner (I hit all the notes somewhat in tempo...), but my microtiming is kaput! Flams everywhere....

Re: Running out of breath while counting

You should be breathing in while counting.

For 7, try 1 e + a 2 e +
For 6, try 1 e + a 2 e

May flow easier than naming all the digits

And if you need to count to not get lost, you need to...

Re: Bad Auditions

Yes, by all means, completely ignore everything I said, the context it was in, your own gross mischaracterisation of other people's position, and just do nothing but angrily personally insult me over...

Re: Bad Auditions

Neither does anybody.



ie. Being upfront about what the process of auditions is.

Also, to be more strictly accurate: " hey man you're awesome and you'd be great for the band, but we want...

Re: Bad Auditions

Your analogy misses the point completely - you are not a member of the band yet. And no offense but honestly this is an unwarranted sense of entitlement and a really bad attitude to take with you -...

Back into playing after a year off.

Study took over my life, even listening to music was phased out. Building up from the very basics once again - not that I really got past being a beginner in the first place!

Just seeing what's...

Re: Does woking out helps drumming?

Aerobic work can really help drumming IMO, but indirectly. Aerobic work makes the difference, for me, between regularly feeling like crap, and not. I play better when I don't feel like crap, and good...

Re: nothing like a Buddy quote to stir the pot

Maybe Midnight Zephyr's complex nature, and who he really is, and the context of what he appears to know or listen to or think by what he says, eludes us too.

Re: This thread is for all the lurkers

Lol, that was just a poorly articulated joke. (I'm not even sure what the "joke" part was meant to be now).

Which is why I lurk. I still like this forum but I don't really anything to say right...
