Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Realize that when most people say "with the right heads" they mean pre-muffled heads. Something with multiple plys, or rings, or dots, or heavy plies or actual muffling rings or "systems" for...

Re: An Open Apology

Yea, you do a good job keeping things clean around here.

Aussies are used to getting corralled up for any crimes that go down, so I'm sure he's fine with it.

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

I just roll up a towel and put it against the head. Keep it in the car and I always have it if the room is too echo-ey or something. Few times I forgot and my hoodie or sweater worked just fine,...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Took me a while to get the subtext of this line. For a long time I was trying to get my Fifty-Five to sound like I heard other people do it. Maybe a natural starting place, but I realize now I sort...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

It's insurance. They don't want the big hits to be missed or done too lightly as that affects the music too much. Since the suit makes it easier to miss notes and or not get the right dynamics. ...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

Yea, I wasn't watching all that close the first time. On second review, it looks like maybe they're both in the mix, and the backup drummers job is to time the important hits with the mouse, and it...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

That might be the "real" drummer. I imagine it's pretty difficult to actually play in that huge suit without really being able to see much. I bet he's either the backup that they can switch the...

He did post video of him playing in a parade as Mr Mouse. That doesn't look like his style though.

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

It really depends on how long you'd studied a particular player so you could really pick out all the idiosyncrasies of their playing. At this point in his life, I actually wonder if Tony might be...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Yea, you see that a lot. People who covet the specific feel and skills of one player. For a while in the 90's you could throw a stone and hit a guitar player that tried to sound like Tool's Adam. ...

You guys from around here or just in town for that show?

Not to mention, both were really recorded before things like aligning to grid, sample replacement, and really heavy editing were common.

Their voices were less silenced in favor of "perfection",...

Re: Bass drum mic picking up Toms

Yea, but as far as I know, there aren't any bass drum mics that have arms or "game".

Re: Bass drum mic picking up Toms

I know this is a troll thread, because bass drum mics don't have arms, and there isn't possibly enough guys named tom to pick up in any one room.

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Hey Art, there was some pretty tasty swinging in there! I'm seeing real differences from some of the older vids. Some stuff to improve still, but you're aware of that.

Don't get discouraged. ...

Re: Should I buy this HipGig Kit?

Pass on this. It's just stuff, and you don't need it, and it's too much to buy just because someone you knew used it.

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

I can't really get on board with talking during solo parts... Maybe this guy is a problem after all! I've done the quiet vamp while people talk thing before, but talking over someone's solo?

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

I tried to say that it's pretty obvious when it doesn't work, but if the audience is digging it and the guy is good at it, don't let yourself get so hungup that you can't play your part simply...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Best way to do that is by listening as much as possible and practicing with other players.

And to slightly correct; you don't want to deeply ingrain whole ideas or phrases, you want to deeply...

Re: Wrist Twisters vs Stick Control

Don't put limits on yourself. Study based on the limits you come upon in your real playing.

When I'm learning a new song or playing out and notice I'm having trouble doing something or not doing...

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

Get a grip, man.

Stage banter is one of the best ways to keep an audience engaged between songs or while guitar players fiddle with cables or tunings. A good front man doing banter is like a good...

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

Tony, that was very well put. I often try and relate drumming "vocabulary" in a similar manner, equating it to spoken vocabulary. You learn the basics of how things work and the mechanics of saying...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

I've dabbled in other instruments, and in fact started with strings before moving over to the tubs.

There's no way I could jump right into a bassist role, though! Did you have a big background on...

Re: Covers that don't work with the original drum part...

I think it's just better to be honest with yourself.

At the very least, study and understand the real part. Ideally, just learn it and figure out why it was a roadblock rather than try and change...

Re: Under Rated or Fairly Unknown Drummers

Pretty much just Meg White; everyone else is fairly-rated.
