Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

Out of interest do you have a version of that song recorded?

Re: Being in an X band, playing shows with crappy Y bands

This is the best and also hardest way to do things. UK Promoters and venues at a certain level are never going to change their approach. There are one or two gems of venues in the UK where you can...

Re: Being in an X band, playing shows with crappy Y bands

The scurge of the unsigned music scene, promoters who put together line ups of non complimentary bands.

At least you are in the same ball park though. I've seen these kind of nights flick between...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

Agree this is great stuff, but its still more of an effect thing (used very nicely I might add)

Heavy music, where did the ride go?

I've just replied to another thread and then realised something.

When did metal/heavy music drummers stop using the ride during double kick parts. Everything is always on stacks or soft fast crash...

Re: What gives? (Weaker limb stronger at new technique)

Yep this. I bet if you video'ed your feet playing a normal groove with your left foot on the hi-hat pedal you would find it bouncing all over the place keeping time!

Tasty about 1:00 in is my favourite bit where he drops out perfectly and starts slotting some nice litle stomps in to build everyone back up.

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

I'm intrigued, what kind of nuances are we talking about here?

When I was a kid for example I didn't know drummers played ghost notes. Is it that kind of thing?

Re: Good noob training tool.

Re: Drumming as Art

I had a couple of thoughts here, but obviously these are not based on any kind of "knowledge!"
