Re: screwed up my first gig

If it's a consolation I did a gig recently where I personally had to call time on the song about a minute in. First time I've EVER done this. And I've been in gigging bands on and off since I was in...

Re: Member leading other members on in a series of misleading questions in threads.

What am I missing?

I've asked plenty of questions over the years that I THOUGHT I knew the answer to but value people's opinions on whom have more expertise than me.

And really...you sound like...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Couldn't agree more.

First couple of gigs my band did before I got my acoustic set I used the electric drums...they were ok. Really, the were. They did a better job, and sounded better, than...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Took me about half an hour to build the frame and set the drums.

Then there are colour coded wires from the brain to the pads and pedals.

Turn on...turn knob one to the right for the first of...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Listen. If an absolute halfwit like me can buy, unbox, wire up, programme, and play the damn things....then trust me when I say that anyone can :-)

Joking apart...E Drums are VERY easy to set up...

Re: Paul Wilson: 15-Year Old Drummer for the 33rd U.S. Colored Troops Regiment

That's rather mind blowingly amazing.
Crosses into both my boundaries of interest, drums and military history (esp. WW2 and ACW)
Wow. Just wow.
I wish I could 'rep' you. Thanks for posting this.

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Sorry. Not correct. An Alesis DM8 or 10 will cost around 100 second hand....I think mine was 400 brand new.

And it's GREAT fun to play.

And god, a practice pad? For real? Jesus, if my wife...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

I couldn't agree more....great post Jim. Well put.

I actually would argue that the MAJOR advantages of an Ekit over it's acoustic big brother far outweigh the disadvantages.

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

Really I have to disagree.

I know exactly where you're going with this but I have both acoustic and Edrums. And not a particularly advanced Edrum kit.

I can tune my Edrums to give me a 'feel'...

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

The fee's are very minor and as a buyer I have no problem paying the extra few quid to cover the fees for the protection it gives me.

Course, a seller who has no intention of fulfilling his side...

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

I wouldn't trade with anyone who refused to accept Paypal (and/or Credit Card) in payment.

That's a huge red alert right there.

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

But you made payment after 1/1/2014 (April 2014??) !!

Ah...it changed 17th June. You're out of luck but bare this in mind for the future as it's very important.

Have you tried asking the chap...

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

You go into Paypal, find the 'Resolution Centre' and report a problem.

They go through a certain process, but ultimately you will get your money back. It's an easier process on you than it is on...

Re: Tempus ordered, payed in April- snare still not there

If you paid by Paypal why don't you simply raise a dispute through them. You get your money back. Story ends.

Can't understand why you have put up with so much when you have paid by Paypal and...

Re: Real Band Dilemma....

Well that's all sorted thanks to the power of group messenging on Facebook.

We agreed we need to get better organised for booking gigs...so are going down an online diary route which we must each...

Re: Real Band Dilemma....

It's that 'disconnect' someone referred to earlier.

I can see no purpose in an unsigned, none-professional, band other than to get out there gigging, with a view to making a bit of money, meeting...

Agreed. But it's even more complicated. Because we don't actually 'get on' outside of the band. Not in the sense that we argue or disagree, but really other than myself and the guitarist, we don't...

Re: Real Band Dilemma....

Nah, you're right.

My better half tells me the ONLY solution is to ask him to leave. It's the last thing I want to do. It will turn into a 'him or me' scenario. I'd almost rather walk myself and...

Re: Real Band Dilemma....

I'm giving serious thought to this as an option but it wouldn't fly.

This guy would throw his dummy out if I made the suggestion. He'd take this as a personal attack.

He can become very touchy...
