Re: Hello

Well Duncan you clean up well-don't you look dapper. So are you the conductor or play strings-cello in this, or what's the deal? How did it all turn out? You gotta give the details. I miss playing...

Re: Extreme Volume

Since it sounds fine in front it sounds like it's an acoustical issue with your hearing impairments and the set up. I can empathize I have poor hearing too (deaf in left ear so don't have stereo...

Re: Can't apply pressure / no control w/ double bass any more. Nerve damage? Old age? 2 years going.

Ophthalmologist or Optometrist? The latter might be limited with broader concerns-if former and a MD -Ophthalmologist then I trust they would pick on something that would be on my list of concerns....

Re: Can't apply pressure / no control w/ double bass any more. Nerve damage? Old age? 2 years going.

Dan generally we get lots of over-use injuries but none of what you describe sounds like that. I'd go see your primary doc who will likely forward you to a specialist. Are you having any vision or...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

No it's just a myth-they all just play with their own style like any other drummer-just better than any other.

Re: Seriously, how many notes do you think you play in 3 hours of music?

I thought about this question awhile back-how many "hits" do we play on all the drum elements in a song. Man you if you play Speedcore extratones then your racking them up exponentially-and if you...

Re: Change of pace

Artifact hunting is a blast-a friend of mine collects old bottles and whatnot, but indigenous Indian artifacts has a huge following. You can collect pottery, arrowheads, etc on private land as long...

Re: Rudiments.....How fast??

Well I don't think Alex is being condescending-but pretty obvious English is a second language (which his English is great) so I think people are reading things into his speech patterns. I think it's...

Re: Rudiments.....How fast??

How could a discussion so "rudimentary" turn into a bar fight? All this talk of "single" or "doubles". I need a double bar tender. Just flam the glass down. I'm "sticking" to there is up to 40...

Re: Rudiments.....How fast??

You drum historians can correct me but I thought the snare rudiments evolved for military purposes-communicating commands. Now what they communicate is obviously different but makes me wonder out of...

Re: Rudiments.....How fast??

I always thought rudiments were more a snare list of drum patterns-and it is great in developing skills and dexterity. But when playing the "drum kit" , though you can apply rudiments to a kit (i...

Re: West Side Story: Percussionist's perspective

Wow we didn't do all of West Side but numerous songs and it took three percussionist in the orchestra to keep up with all of it. My wife played mallets, there was another percussionist who was head...

Re: Do your Toms sound bad? Here’s why.

Before Amazon I'd always go to the store and check them out and thump on them, now with their return policy I buy them check them and thump on them and decide if good or not. I haven't had to return...

Re: Drumming & Neuroscience

Yep that came up on another thread-made me wonder if I started drums at such an early age because of my ADD. Or did drumming precipitate my ADD?? LOL. Like Cannabis consumption is associated with...

Re: Drumming & Neuroscience

That is really true Doc especially the interpersonal because you must pick up on nonverbal cues or some empathetic ability. I love gelling with a bass player-like communicating through music. It...

Re: Drumming & Neuroscience

I like putting puzzles together because you can go by shape where it seems intuitive to me-they just "jump out" or cognitive where you look at image and find piece to fill the image. It's very...

Re: Drumming & Neuroscience

Now there could be inherit differences but that study doesn't address that-because they only looked at pros. So it's like examining the muscle and physiology of an athlete-their training produces...

Re: New kit on it's way :)

Wow solid Ovangkol-interesting two 10 in toms (you really like them) then 12 and 16. I really like that-I love a nice 10 in tom and like the idea of two 10 in like I've seen two 12 or 13s. So what...

Re: Book Club

It was meant to be humor. I apologize if taken otherwise-which I give up on my frail attempts at humor on here. Though an avid reader of fiction and non-fiction since childhood in around 1980 I quit...

Re: Distractions While Playing

Re: Drumstick Trick People! What's good?

I've never twirled a stick but would never deny another the right to do so. Some of it is pretty impressive indeed in it's own right. I like people being innovative too-man I all our hip tricks on...

Re: Show me your cajon setups

I bought a Djembe and cajon and never use them-never have come think of it. But a cajon mic'ed sounds fantastic. I like them but found little application, but perhaps that's my fault.

Re: Rank the brands

Maybe my nose and olfactory sense has weakened but I don't get any rank with any of the drums brands mentioned? In fact I like the smell. So they all must equally "ranK" well or I would argue they...
