Re: My physical issues and my drumming

Well when you're paddling a slow boat the jet ski sure does look enticing as it passes you by so I guess that tendency for "speed" is a natural one. I think it's nice to have but often over used (and...

Next time I'm in the UK I'm coming to your shop to meet you in person Andy (it would be my honor) and then too to try out your demo room-hell yeah seems apropos because Art should be playing drum art...

Re: Drumming and tennis

Ah yes "Cricket"-make great bait. I like to listen to them chirp (stridulate) too. LOL I like cricket much less confusing than "football" which apparently refers to two completely different sports...

Re: Fast old fart - brings back memories :)

"Let's be honest here, it's hardly a good drum performance, & there's no way I'd have that out there as a finished piece, but for the job I was asked to do, & considering the time constraint, I'm...

Re: Fast old fart - brings back memories :)

Andy you should change your moniker to "Keep it tasteful" because that really fits. I'm thinking of changing mine to "White noise".

Re: Fast old fart - brings back memories :)

Dang Andy awesome first take-and I've noted that often my first take will sound best and the more I muck with it I mess it up. And this tale explains a lot. The ole days of Bread and Butter drumming...

Re: Drumming and tennis

That's funny John I was writing my posit while you posted yours. i agree with man's natural abilities and how consciously thinking about it screws it up. Like practicing rudiments if you think about...

Re: Drumming and tennis

I'd bet being muscle bound could hurt your drumming. I swim a quarter or half mile a day to keep in shape since my knees took a hit and I can't run anymore. Drumming isn't an olympic sport so being...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

I still say drinking and drumming don't mix. And this is not being a wimp or hypocritical because I can't think of a mind altering substance that I haven't abused while behind a drum kit-but that's...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

Gosh when I drink I sound stellar, till I listen to the recording of my playing and realize I was gone-zo. You shouldn't drink in drive or drink and drum. But when I do drink-I drink Dos Equis-so...

Re: Making $ playing drums

I've always wanted to make an entire drum kit of paper-mache. Maybe hemp paper. Hey drums made out of hemp. That's the ticket-how popular worth that be. LOL. Andy maybe you can help me out-I'll...

Re: How tense are you when you play?

I guess I'm pathetically insecure as I always tense up before I play in public. I have to find my 'happy place' to relax and play-though if I play a venue repeatedly it's not as bad. I seem to play...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Well it's a movie how much drama is there really in drumming? So they go for the "blood", hopefully "sex"-I haven't seen it, and regular formula=of course it doesn't reflect reality=the instructor...

Re: Who inspires you the most?

Gosh so many drummers just on Drummerworld site and forum that inspire me-then too some who have been playing five years compared to my 50 and make me look like a beginner kind of disillusion me to...

Re: Anatomy of Drumming

Re: Snare sound with Hot Rods?

I always like rutes but the sound engineer at the church I played said they sounded terrible so I quit using them. Just opted for 7As and a light touch.

Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

I agre LarryAce I use to play with an orchestra and drums aren't suppose to stand out or drown out the other instruments (easy to drown out strings), then at times you are tacit playing nothing too...

Re: Bouncing problem

Funny story. I had it with an orchestra I played with but it was with this little Sonor Safari kit. It was in a small practice room where the whole orchestra was crowded. We couldn't figure out where...

Re: Bouncing problem

I had the problem one time playing another person's kit. The head was ported so I was kind of at a loss till I noted the spring was was really tight-I loosened it up and could bury it then with no...

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

The hi hat part is fast? That's relative my friend-it ain't Tony Williams fast. Fact is the whole idea of the shuffle is to give it a faster pace than it actually is. Note the videos of him playing...

It really isn't that fast just sounds so with the ghost notes-the ghost notes drive it and trick is to get the ghost note hi hat interplay going.

Re: Bass drum triplets - rusty / struggling :(

Sounds like you are hitting it just the slow draw on the ride makes it drag-but I gather that's what you want. It really changes up at the end-and in all sounds pretty cool to me-just smoother and...
