Re: RIP Dave Ratajczak

I found out about Dave Ratajczak after I made a post a while back about movies that featured drumming. The movie The Drummer was a very good very interesting short film.

I attempted to find out...

Re: Ringo and Greg Bissonette sitting in with Toto

I don't think that was Ringo at all... it was Bernard Purdie.

Re: Best way to tune a Powerstroke 3 for Bass Drum?

You get a "Book" out of your bass? Remove the printing press and I guarantee you'll then get a Boom!!


I have a coated PS3 batter head for emergencies. When I use it, I tune much higher than...

Re: I've learned so much here.

I have learned more on this sit than anywhere else. I am able to actually carry on an intelligent conversation with other musicians. And forget it when it comes time to talk to another drummer......

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

Here's my correspondence with Band #1:

Brian,

For the last several months I have been actively looking for a band to join and I have had the opportunity to meet and play with a wide variety of...

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

This whole thing is crazy. Let's call the band I am now a part of Band #2 - I played with them after I casually jammed with the first guy - Band #1.

When I first jammed with #1 I thought that...

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

As long as you know what you mean, we're good. ;-) I just wish I knew what I meant.

Thanks for the chuffing!

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

Yes, I'm in the one I want the most. We're working on song/set lists and setting up calendar events (all practice) at the current time. The Bass player and I are looking for times to get together...

Re: I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

I should have been clearer in my original post.

The guys that offered me the gig last night are the people I want to play with the most. Which is a good thing. Besides, I don't have time for...

I'm in a Band - And I Have a Problem

A couple of weeks ago I got in touch with a guitar player that's starting a new band. Last weekend I met and played with the two guys (guitar & bass) in the band. Both of these guys are great -...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

Although the PA is a necessity for the singer(s), It isn't always for a drummer unless the drums are mic'ed, right? So the drummer gets a pass on having to pay for the band to use it. That seems...

Re: Tuning Drums for Audition

This is for a Classic Rock gig. When you say "tune them higher," I assume you mean both the top and bottom heads, right? I already keep my bass pretty tight. No JAW around here.

Unfortunately,...

Tuning Drums for Audition

Right now, my drums sound great - but that's from my Driver's Seat perspective. I need to know what tuning adjustments to make so my drums sound really good for the guitar player and bassist that...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

I hear you, I truly do. However, I do not believe that I have ever seen (or used?) a right-handed - or left-handed for that matter - door.

Hmmm?

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

After meeting drummers, sometimes they ask if I want to check out their kit - which is kind of surprising to me... I'm not sure I would do that. But anyway, I thank them and then inform them that I...

Re: How do I get this weird sound? Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer"

Just holster a .38 caliber pistol and use it during those parts. If you lose an audience member or two during the performance, at least they went to the great beyond for the music, right?

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

Yeah, I know John was a guitar player - he actually played lead on a few Beatles tune, too. And as a guitar player, he would have had calluses on his fingers and most certainly wouldn't have...

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

Interesting. I was always under the impression that it was John that said that as well.

I do believe that this gentleman is incorrect. Ringo wouldn't have blurted out that statement, but John...

Anyway, I really enjoy watching Buddy Rich play. His left wrist action on the snare was amazing - I have good...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

I too can tune my drums pretty well. I've put in a lot of time to get to know how my drums should sound. But, this is once again only from the driver's seat.

For me, my method for the mounted...

Re: Is this suspicious?

I would question this e-mail, too.

I'm sure it's spam. The fact that you're a drummer is probably on the inter-web in a multitude of places and this e-mail got attached to your name.
