Re: Writing with the weak hand?

Re: The Drum Set As Melody Instrument

Re: NAMM 2015: Premier 'The Beast' Snare

Re: Too many choices.

Just make sure you factor into your budget new heads top and bottom on all drums. That can run to a couple of hundred right there.

Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

Out of interest do you have a version of that song recorded?

Re: DW aquires Gretsch and Latin Percussion...
