Re: "The World's Greatest Drummer is Louis Bellson"

Man I haven't seen that Tonight Show solo before, that's probably my favorite Belleson solo I've seen.

Re: Trouble playing rock stuff

Just had to chuckle at you throwing modern in there. Matchbox 20 is much closer to GnR than they are to today. Iirc correctly, GnR's debut came out in 1987, and Matchbox 20's big debut was 1996,...

Re: Ian Paice rocks!!!

Emmerreta was a single that came out around the time of their self-titled, which was an undermarketed album that no one knew about because their label went bankrupt at the same time. Also, around...

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

Is it a bar or was it non-alcoholic venue? If its a bar, you should get at least half the cover (by you, I mean split between the bands, if there's multiple), if not 80% (or all). The bar makes...

Re: Best Jazz Songs

Contrary to the vibe I'm getting with your write up, I find Fusion to be the most accessible style of jazz, at least with post-bop styles. Just because it is a fusion of rock, so there's a lot of...

Re: Ian Paice rocks!!!

Flight of the Rat is one of my favorite songs. Those triplet fills at 230+ bpm are niiiiiiiiiice.

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

I work out of Tommy Igoe's Hands for a Lifetime ebook/DVD, concentrating on the Lifetime Warmup. Getting close to mastering the Advanced warmup. I try to play a pad everyday.

When I get on the...

Re: Ian Paice rocks!!!

True that. People sing Bonham's praises, and while Bonham was great, Paice was better in every way. And Purple is a better band than Zeppelin.

He's my personal favorite drummer. I look at him...

Re: Seeking Rare Colaiuta Album

Nice transcriptions!

The triplet based ones don't seem *too* hard. Assuming you're supposed to play the sextuplets are double strokes/drags, I can shed those fairly easily. Just have to be able...

Re: The ubiquity of smaller kits

Small sets are not a recent phenomenon. Its been that way for the past ten years easily, not to mention they were pretty big in the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.

Re: Drinking and Drumming

Everyone has their preference for drinking, but seriously, if your driving is significantly impaired after a few Sam Adams over a 2-3 hour rehearsal, you either weigh 100 lbs, or have a severe...

Re: Do you accept every gig you're offered or are you picky?

Know the feeling, I've run into this several times. Being booked to follow up a punk band with a piano based indie outfit....wtf?

Re: Drinking and Drumming

My playing does get a tad worse, but I care less about my performance, so I worry less about making sure my playing is perfect. Its a two edged sword.

Re: Female drummers?

Kinda funny semi-related. So I'm a dude, I go to guitar center to buy a new front head. There's a woman who helped me (and I'm sure most people know, at GC, generally women tend to be relegated to...

Re: How many drum kits have you owned?

I've owned 4 in my life.

My original drumset, some old 60's era Pearl 4 piece (bought in 2000, sold in 2004)
My upgrade drumset, which has since been my main, a Sonor 2001 (bought in 2004, still...

Re: Big Band drum thread.

A Zildjians (and by extension, Sabian AA's) are touted as rock cymbals nowadays, but they were developed for big bands originally. Buddy Rich used all Zildjian A's, for example. People get in their...

Re: What's your favorite drumset category? Drums, cymbals or hardware

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Hardly, he's in the pantheon, and won't be going anywhere anytime soon. Especially once he's dead, he'll be permanently fixed.

Re: Making $ playing drums

Here in Portland, good luck finding a weekend cover band willing to pay you $100 a night. $50 is if you're really lucky.

Re: 1 measure lick ideas for solos

Thanks. The reason why I want to pre-mediate these is because I want to force myself to make them varied; I'm afraid I'll recycle too much if I spontaneously come up with them on the spot.

Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

This is actually more common than not, in my experience.

You walk into guitar center, you see all these cats pulling licks that I can't hope to do. I go see local bands setup and the drummer just...

Re: What method of drum video critiquing do you go by?

And this is why the shitty singers on American Idol cry when the judges tell them the truth.

Re: 1 measure lick ideas for solos

.....I'm just asking for written fills. Not sure why that's coming across as super mathy to you? People post music and transcriptions all the time on these forums.
