Re: Scottish Pipe Band Technique

I think you're talking about an accented roll or 'beated roll' as we call them. Try just doing a normal roll, but where your accents are there is no rebound on that beat. I've seen guys do them while...

Re: THE GOOD SNARE THREAD

This is my Maestro 14x5 snare drum. Made of 2mm copper with gold plated hardware.
The drum is 9 yrs old now and I've played it ALOT. Awesome for live shows, but a bit over the top for recording. The...

Re: (HISTORY) TRADITIONAL GRiP THREAD

From a historical stand point, all references to traditional drummers indicate the drum was (and still is) slung on the left. But this alone cannot mean that all drummers were right handed. I don't...

Re: Scottish Pipe Band Technique

Very nicely put, Boomka. Our rudiments are the same, but the way they are executed is slightly different. Not on all, but some. Now, I'm an Aussie and was taught the American way of playing...

Re: Scottish Pipe Band Technique

Re: Singing drummers

I do. Lead and back-up harmony, whilst drumming. It's not as hard as you think.

Re: Singing Drummers?

Yeh I know one, ME!
I shared lead vox with the bass player in a 3 piece cover band I was in. So much fun. We did well between us, and only picked songs we could handle. I prefer to sing back-up...

Re: Your Drums: How did you buy them?

Patience, Grasshopper!
When I bought my first 'Pro' kit, I took out a small loan. The kit was a piano white Tama Granstar Custom. Very nice kit, and the bank loan was my very first loan of any sort....

Re: GRETSCH RELIABILITY

I've had my Gretsch kit for around 17 years and it sounds and looks brand new. I got a shell kit with no snare drum or hardware.
Buy a good Gretsch kit and you'll never need to buy another.

Re: What First Inspired You

My dad had a couple of records by Sandy Nelson. One was 'Drumming up a storm", but the other titles escape me. I got hooked on the jungle beats and 'surf' music. Then The Shadows would come out, and...
