Smoothing out Shaker/Maracas

Re: Click Track and Set List Software/Program/App!

Get Polynome for the iPhone/iPad, and get the pro-upgrade. Its 20 bucks, but well worth it. I'm pretty sure it can do everything there plus a lot more.

Re: You love the idea of it, but you are never happy with it (Drum gear)

The Sabian Omni cymbals. I snagged a good deal on one when they first came out, and it was just, disappointing.

Re: To all open handed drummers out there, need some advice!

Just keep doing it. It takes a while to get that left hand up to snuff. Try working through syncopation with the left hand keeping time and the right comping the rhythms, that helped me alot.

Re: Drummer's Cars

2005 Pontiac vibe. Back seats fold down, I can fit a 3 piece band's gear into it. The down side is that I usually get picked to drive to every gig I have!

Re: Awkward drum shop experience...

I'd like to point out that if you were at guitar center, you weren't at a drum shop. You were at a corporate guitar store that happens to have a drum section. There is a huge difference.

Re: What to record first?

Reggae is all about feel and grove. Try to record all of the rhythm tracks live, or at least the drums and bass. Record a few takes of every song, go for the best overall take.

Re: octabons vs. deccabons. vs. rototoms vs. piccolo toms

Depends on where you are gigging. If you are playing somewhere without a PA system, you'll need something to amplify it with and something to monitor with.
