Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

I remember asking a bar owner about EDM and she replied "I don't want those kids in here." She wanted 80's dance music, country music, some rock but not EDM.

Celebrity musicians might own many different brands of instruments and some of them may be customized - changed with updated pickups or hardware.

Re: Moving Past Sickness?

Re: Ain't no more fun...

Just pack up your drums and go somewhere else. You don't have to be there.

Re: Wrist Sprain, Advice?

I sleep with a hand / wrist brace every night. Compression helps. After playing 1 hour I take a 5 minute break. Slowly my wrist seems to be getting better.

Re: How our perspective changes

I play my e-kit every day. It's handy for a lot of things. It's good for gigs in restaurants where they want quieter music. I can get loud if I want to.

Re: I'm having trouble practicing

I find it useful to focus on something specific that I want to learn. Study or practice it for 5 or 10 minutes a day, every day. For example I might study a single reggae groove. When I learn it,...

Here is a thought. We tell the Superbowl guys they have to pay us $ 100 to watch their stupid TV show football game.

Re: Potential drummer; have a maybe controversial question

Re: I Want to Gig!
