Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Right now, it's Dishwalla "Counting Blue Cars." Just something about playing that song that makes me wanna pound the crap outta them (well, you know, the chorus)

Re: Acoustic Gig

I think it depends on several factors. What gear do you have available? What are you comfortable playing? What is the size/type of the venue? What are your bandmates looking for?

I've gone in...

Re: Negotiating more money for a gig.

I can see where the times and an early flight, etc could be a problem for the guitarist, but turning down a paying gig for band practice is beyond absurd IMO.

Re: Selling my Yamaha Beech Customs. What should I ask? (pics)

Aside from lacking the money ... and the space ... and the distance between us, I'd grab them up in a heartbeat! I've wanted beech customs for years now, and I love that color. Isn't it called...

Re: Legs always feel sore

I didn't go back and read your original post (that you didn't post), but where are you sore, and what kind of pain? Dull? Sharp? Shooting?

Re: Not sure if this has been brought up before...

Wow. I've had mine for about 12 years now, and I gig almost every weekend. I've never noticed an "aroma" but maybe it's time I check it out ......

Re: It is now complete!

Sounds like your ducks are pretty well aligned. You sure we can't help you with anything? Which area rug, cymbal felts, stick holder? Anything???

Re: Elvin Jones Documentary

That's one thing that I don't get. Drummers (and sales ads) are always referring to adding "colors" and "textures". No, they're sounds. Drums and cymbals (and percussion accessories) produce...

Re: How do i get bass drum to take my full downstrokes?

It can be any combination of things:
- low head tension

- low pedal/spring tension
- play farther up on the pedal

Re: Stupid Newbie Tricks

I think my only blunder was one time at a gig, I "thought" I clamped my pedal to the bass drum, but about half-way through the first song, I realised I completeIy missed the hoop and the clamp was...

Re: Preparing for a covers band

You might already know this stuff, and I didn't see anyone touch on it here, but .... once you're on the gig:
- sit down with the guys before each set and go over any questionables for that set.

I put a backrest on my Roc N Soc. I relax AND sit straight. I couldn't believe the difference it made!

Re: First Audition

A couple of things that I always keep in mind....
1) Take the music seriously, but treat the audition like a "jam" - you're going there to hang out, play some music, and have some fun.
2) ...

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

I guess it depends on the definition of "gig" and/or "show". I haven't been to a concert (where the sole purpose is to see/hear the band) in quite awhile. Most of the gigs that I attend or play...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Tell your guitarist it doesn't matter - the bass player is going to speed up and wreck it anyway. Then go have a beer!

Re: Newest tools

Nice!. That setup would have my brain so knotted up I'd end up playing a polka beat on every song.

Re: Question about beater buzz.

I play an 18x22 with a ported reso. Both heads are JAW. Also heel-up and bury the beater, and I get the same buzz.
