Re: I just came from a Horacio Hernandez Concert...Greatness!!!!!

I found out who the bass player was! Matthew Garrison. He is one great freaking player. One of the best players I've seen.

I think it's pretty hard. Latin music is huge it has a lot of styles, samba, latin jazz, salsa, songo etc. etc. Each style is played very differently and...

Re: Why do some drummers have two snares? How do the use them

Wanna see a how cool two snares can sound? Check out Virgil Donati on this solo, he plays some crazy polyrithms using two snares.

Re: My Isolation Headphones got messed up...(cries like a baby)

I was thinking of buying some UHU glue since it's elastic and gluing the cushion thing back. A friend recomended me using Crazy Glue but that's too plastic and maybe it won't work very good. I'll try...

Re: What annoys you on peoples drum sets?

I don't agree with you. Virgil Donati uses a lot rim shots and his snare has a normal angle. It's just how high you set it up.

This is what I was talking about before. I hate all these crap ass...

Re: What annoys you on peoples drum sets?

Another thing I hate is bad pedal angles or setups. I friend of mine setups his pedal at the maximum tension possible and he angles the beater to be as flat as possible and the foot board super high....

Re: What annoys you on peoples drum sets?

I hate when people put their cymbals too high (almost over head) and the toms at the same level of the snare (snare is under the waist level so it's too freaking low). That is ridiculous and too...

Re: Virgil Donati

Virgil Donati is by far the best drummer I've seen. Many people say that he has no feel, but I think they're wrong, just download some videos of Virgil grooving instead of the typical drumsolo videos...

Re: Good Double Bass Drum Songs

If you want to die, try listening to Virgil Donati, Alien Hip-Hop is a perfect example of DB crazyness. If you are a beginner try Mike Portnoy you can learn a lot from him.
