Re: Drum tab

My teacher loves it when I ask him to help me transcribe a song. We will go through it by ear(s) with blank sheet music and figure it out. Many many times during the figuring out process he will say...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

While I was not at this particular game, I have been to many Chiefs' games and have been in Arrowhead Stadium when it is at its loudest. It is very very loud no doubt but with the open air stadium it...

Re: Tension

You nailed it. I am simply not confident enough in my ability to 'hang' with other musicians. Part of the problem I think is that I tend to rush things. I joined a band before I felt ready - was kind...

Re: Tension

Interesting insight Jim. I no longer drink so I have no experience with DWJ (drumming while juiced), although I do celebrate herbally on occasion and often times before I play. TBH it is a state that...

Re: Tension

A month ago or so a group of us were jamming in my basement when my 15 year old daughter came downstairs to watch - which is fairly common. Later that day after the jam was over my daughter, wife and...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

Yeah at my lesson last night I told my teacher how the grip change got in my squirrel cage (did I just write a lyric?). He said what you guys did pretty much - work on the new grip with the idea that...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

Thanks again for the replies. I have a lesson tonight and will ask more questions about the grip change. Funny how the smallest things can sometimes instigate panic and anxiety!

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

Thanks for the fast replies guys. It sounds like my teacher is trying to offer me an alternative to the grip I was using when I played for him the first time. I will ask him tonight when I see him...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

Sorry for the confusion. I am confused too. My first teacher never commented on my grip - rarely at least. He did not say "use a German grip" - he just put my hands in a position that now I see is...
