Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

Read the posts people. Stop bringing up bands starting out and doing one off originals gigs.

By the way, it's not right. That manager is not asking you to work for free. In that example, that...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

*sigh* Well, good for you. You really sound like someone I want to know and get sympathy from.

Luckily, I don't have trouble making a living and don't find it hard like you think. I'm not eking...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

Hehehe...Well, first off, I don't really play pubs and it's not about going with the 'free guys' vs myself as you say. What you bring up is not my issue with this at all, so that doesn't enter the...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

No, no, no. You misunderstand.

It's fine if you play music. I don't care. Play away to your hearts content. Just don't do it for free at a place in which it should be paid work.

If you do a...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Ridiculous. In those same situations, most of my teachers have been just straightforward and honest. Critically so, but that's the point. You're there to learn and become the best you can be.

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

That is precisely the attitude that makes it difficult. If you play in a pub, to people, for entertainment, you should get paid. If not for yourself, damn well have some respect for those who come...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

The bigger picture also should take into account that it is some people's profession and that doing any gigs for free can undercut those that literally need to get paid for playing to live. The guys...

Re: Christos Asonitis - Hi-Hat Chop

Just out of curiosity, what's with the latest odd development of calling a lick 'a chop'?

You know..."check this sick chop out bro"?

There's already a word for 'a chop'. It's called a lick...

Re: how to use Stick Control

One of my favourite stick control exercises that I came up with years ago is an interpretation for improvising with accented six strokes in 16th triplets. You assign groups of three notes to each...

So are you saying that if you play a buzz roll with 3 bounces, there is going to be a discernible accent pattern within each hand buzz different from 4?

If i drop my stick for 5...

Re: how to use Stick Control

The first five exercises are the first rudiments nearly every student begins with directly after picking up sticks.

These are the very rudiments you say a drummer should have control over first...

Re: New to Punk Drumming and Playing Fast

Although in one respect this is true, I always get very annoyed by these types of answers. They are so common too. It needs to have a second point added. Always.

Playing slowly does not make you...
