Re: A new drumming hero emerges!

Oh my, he finished off Part 2 with some Weather Report. And he played a difficult Jaco passage on bass.

He is my new idol.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

I think the OP has been a bit harshly treated and I consider it a worthy question.

One thing that hasn't been mentioned (much) is sound. When I listen to pop the drumming washes over me then...

Re: Drummers who play other instruments also....

I played classical instruments first, then bass for 25 years before playing drums.

Having played bass for so long it helped with my rhythm keeping when starting on drums. But I now realise that...

Re: Drummerworld inventors

Anything that will enable set-up and set-down durations to be reduced. You know those kids play houses that fold up flat. You release them and they spring into a play house. Well I want one of...

Re: The foot is the key to groove

I agree with the observation that the kick drum has become more important than the back beat on the snare. It's also the one thing I really listen out for.

It takes years just to get the...

Re: playing less and keeping time

8ths on hi-hat is the crutch that the OP is trying to free from.

Play very slowly a familiar beat but play 1/4ths rather than 1/8ths.

Try alright now by free to get the feel of playing 1/4s.

Re: Where to practice drums in London?

If you do find somewhere central do share it. I'd like to know!

Re: Who does this, really?

I have a number of basses and cases for the basses, but the cases I like the best are the ones that are lightest and with least padding. The basses tend to live in their cases anyway so I throw the...

Re: Electronic Roland TD-11K

I use Vex kits but you should be able to turn off the reverb on the toms within the module.

You are in danger of giving us the impression that your life is all about having fun; hedonistic even. We all know how hard you work but this fun side of your life is getting out of hand. ...

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Opentune is spot on.

Mike Johnson says make your weaknesses your strengths.

Mountineers and ship Captians have wives too. Somehow they have to work this out. Turn this situation around and...

Re: Bad hi-hat recording

Recording sounds ok to me too. It sounds a bit crude/basic/naive.

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Great post Andy.

The short decay you mention makes a lot of sense in a live multi-instrument setting - so how does this translate into tuning? Someone mentioned tuning the reso up a fourth but...

Re: bass drum depth

I'm always amazed that some (marketing) folk think that cannon bass drums look better. The opposite is true in my case. I think narrower drums look better. Either way non-drummers won't be able to...

I have never tried to boil my throne in water.

Re: Why is it you never see threads saying....

I've bought a set! In fact I've double-failed in buying a used set.

The sky didn't fall down.

Paiste Twenty's 13" hats, 16" crash and 20" ride.

Bargain. I knew the seller was a cymbaholic...

Re: Auralex Hovermat?

$300 sounds rather high. I'm surprised they haven't priced themselves out of the market with this price.
