Two of the guys in my band are recording their songs, original songs that we play in the band.
But, they are recording it without the rest of the band being involved. They hired a studio drummer to...

Re: Drumming Injury Advice needed!

I don't think many people want to dole out marginal medical advice here. Could be the early warning signs of something that could become an issue if left unchecked/untreated. Who knows? I've never...

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

I know a few guys who went to PIT. I've never heard any complaints, and they're all very decent drummers. I'd say they are both great choices. Meytal Cohen went to LACM, and she's a very decent...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Yes, it tends to take a toll on progress, but the drums are always in the back of our minds, eh?


Well yeah, that's the problem. We lose our sticking and the muscle memory that goes along with...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

I had to stop playing a couple times. Not because of self-loathing over negative progress, but just life forcing me to do other things. The first time, I went to Tech School in AZ for a little over a...

Re: Open handed technique

I've been dabbling in open-handed technique in a couple songs. Being a right-hander, I like how it frees up the right hand to play accents and fills with the right hand while I keep time on the hats...

Re: Buying options, need help!

There are ways to make crap drums sound better..I think you have your drumming priorities mixed up. Get the good cymbals and snare first, then worry about the drums. To be honest, if you can tune OK,...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Unless you get a teacher, then playing with others is the only way to go. maybe try a different genre like reggae or some Texas shuffle,or study jazz with a teacher.

I've been playing off and on,...

Re: bass drum depth

I like 14" deep for a 22" bass drum. It follows the Golden Proportion Ratio.

Re: Band Hunting

Maybe you can find a good local practice spot in town, like a 24-hour lockout room, and start your own band by inviting other musicians to your place for jamming/auditioning. Let them do the drive,...

Re: Trimmed down kits

I made it a mission of mine to have a complete gig kit where I didn't need a thing from the studio kit. I played it tonight and got more accolades on my playing on this kit than I do with the 5-piece...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist

I would say only do this coffee thing if it leads directly to jamming that day. I mean, I've never had this problem with Craigslist people, but we've all heard some horror stories. I don't think this...

Yep. This is the kit I'm going to get when I finally get a new kit. I played them at GC when I was trying out a new bass pedal. Wonderful tone and good projection. I like the smaller turrets too. The...

Re: Trimmed down kits

I'm playing tomorrow with a 4 piece kit w/ 13/16 concert toms, one ride, hats and one crash (gotta have the crash man). It does feel gutsy, but I played the sets in practice with this set-up.

Re: Joey Kramer joins Pearl Drum Company

Lars has been with Tama and Zildjian his whole career. Alex Van Halen has been with Ludwig the whole time, but I think he played a Nooble & Cooley snare according to my friend.
