Re: Spicing up metal drumming

One approach that worked very well for me in my bass playing days was to approach things in a more linear fashion from time to time when you're writing.

Re: In Ears w/Click During Rehearsal

I don't like having it on when I'm rehearsing with the band - something about it just distracts me from paying attention to everyone else. But if it's necessary, I'll usually suggest cutting the...

Re: Tommy Igoe's Groove Essentials 1.0 or 2.0?

Awesome! You'll love it.

I'm working on a side project to list some examples of the various grooves in real, recorded songs. I hope to have some of these posted by later next week.

Good luck!...

Re: Funk Drummers

James Brown, early era - I did a review of a nice music book-and-CD related to this material in another thread, "The Funkmasters - The Great James Brown Rhythm Sections 1960-1973"...

Re: stating the obvious

1) Drum companies (or, any company for that matter) "endorse" people to put their products in an already-burning spotlight.
2) This dude's got 300K+ YouTube subscribers, 106+ million views, and...

Re: Are we selling out?

I dunno about the selling out part, but I think you should send us all a copy of the samples first... you know, so we can tell you if they're any good or not :D

I would get the whoe package - DVD, play along CD, book and poster. The book will help understand the ins and outs of the grooves, provide some great variations to most grooves, and will provide...

Re: Squeezing the best tone from a dirt-cheap kit

In addition to adding new heads and tuning and what not:

1) Check to ensure that there are no rattles or noises in the hardware (loose lugs, bad arm connections on the toms, squeaky pedals, bad...

Re: I must be outta' my cotton pickin' mind, but...

For sure, no doubt about either point. I'm not swaying at all from the idea of getting an A-kit, but getting the e-kit as well let's me play more music, both short and long term. If that means I...

Re: I must be outta' my cotton pickin' mind, but...

I'm crunching some numbers this morning, and the more I look at this, the more I may end up swaying towards "E- before A-". I've...

Re: I must be outta' my cotton pickin' mind, but...

That's kinda' where my mind was pointed. I figure investing in the e-kit first may be the best opportunity for me to play music. I'm a pretty disciplined fellow, so I can deal with regimented pad...

Re: I must be outta' my cotton pickin' mind, but...

Thanks Mark.

In a past life, I was the jerk who came in late, hung over, out of tune, not in practice, smelling of week-old cheese. The nice studio guys would yell and scream at you. The...
