Re: Drumming dreams

Yea man, I remember parts of that one really well. It was very un-cool. Even after waking up I was sweating, my heart has hammering and it took me a good 10 minutes to clear out the feeling that it...

Re: Drumming dreams

I only remember one. I'll preface this by saying that I do like the foo fighters, but I'm no fanatic or anything. I hear em on the radio, and own one album. I dig em, but I have no idea why I...

Re: Timing test

Right, but there's no scores! Also, it keeps going, and this doesn't.

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

I play on the weekends, too. But that I should have to lose money to entertain your guests at a bar, while you give me the stink-eye if I don't bring 30-50 people to buy drinks from you, and then...

Re: Outdoor Shows - Head and Humidity

Don't give sublime credit for that. That's why I think it should be illegal to cover a song on a commercial album without crediting the original author in the song-title.

I'm with you on the sun...

Re: "Marching kit" finally complete

You gotta be kidding me posting that shit without audio examples of how it sounds.

You're killing me, smalls.

Re: Thoughts on super fast foot speed

Over what? With so many options for the surface and rebound, the beater, etc... In fact, for really fast playing, I think the trampoline like surface of some of the roland kicks is almost like...

Re: Thoughts on super fast foot speed

I often wonder why you'd even haul a kick and trigger it. There are some nice electronic kicks out there that will get you a triggered sound with none of the weight, and lots more space in your...

LOL. Looks like he deleted the comment from Todd I believe.

Re: Timing test

my first was 846. Then to be funny I used the tap feature on my metronome and slaved it. 734. I don't know if that's bad news for me, or my metronome...

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

As an accomplished troll myself, seeing whatever that was referred to as 'trolling' simply hurts physically. I'm sticking with my original assessment. The author is a 12 year old who is sure he...

Re: Why Musicians DON'T Deserve to Get Paid

That whole thing was entirely devoid of any rational thought. It's like a 12 year old ranting about something he thinks he knows, but is totally clueless about.

Re: Where's all the gear?

I think you guys are giving these things more credit than they deserve against the test of time.

I've seen drums that were barely 10 years old, literally falling apart because someone left them in...

Re: Favorite floor tom size and why?

16 baby. Don't really care if it's 16x14 or 16x16.

Re: Less Playing = More Kudos

Yea, I've heard a few live versions where he way simplified. Played solid backbeat through lots more measures than he did in either of the examples above.

Re: Less Playing = More Kudos

Wow dude, weird. I never payed enough attention to realize I'd heard more than one version of the song. At any rate, it's similar. The bass drum goes thud thud and then there's a fill usually. I...

Re: Less Playing = More Kudos

I think the meat of it is mostly the snare roll at the end of the measures. Nail that down, and improvise on it a bit, and I think you're gold.

Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

I think you might both still be missing the point. I don't understand why you're defaulting to a (clueless) guitar players' answer when you have a whole thread of real drummers trying to get across...

Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

That guy is an idiot, and you shouldn't listen to him. The idea of rudiments has literally nothing to do with seeing how fast you can play them. Rudiments are about control, precision, technique,...

Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

This is getting weird, folks. Nothing, no pattern, no groove, not one single thing we can do at a drumset is compatible with "all tempos". Rudiments are building blocks that we can use to create...

Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

Technically, you don't really need to learn the alphabet or learn how to spell in order to get along with others and talk. But I think you'll have a harder time understanding the language at a high...

Re: No tip jar, still getting tips

Best we've managed was 15 for free bird. Pooled 5 dollars each between 3 audience members to get us to play it.

My favorite part of that is that there is a juke box on the wall directly to the...

Re: Sticking?

I hear a bit of "comping" with the brush while the ride pattern is going. Rather than note for note figure out that kind of thing, I tend to try and listen to the music and let it dictate where I...

Re: 12x8 or 13x9 for single rack tom??
