Re: Drums and beer at my first ever band tryout!

Back in the glorious '80s, when I played guitar, I had to have two vodka kamikazes on the rocks before getting on stage. Any less and my hands would shake so hard from nervousness that I couldn't...

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

It bothers me the most when I'm at someone else's gig and I can see impending disaster, but I can't do anything about it. I watch helplessly as the kick drum slowly rotates toward a...

Re: Little experiment I did

Larry, this is a great idea. I have the same problems with/opinions about wood vs. nylon tips. I'm going to try your solution.

Thank you for posting your creative experiment!

Re: extreme tom angles and snare tilt

Daru Jones is the drummer playing with Jack White now (and in that clip above). Here's (http://www.esquire.com/_mobile/blogs/culture/jack-white-drummer-daru-jones) a longish article about him.

Re: Band Frustrations + 1

There is no phrase more meaningless. It is, at once, a symptom of apathy and an excuse not to act.

It's even worse than, "Let's agree to disagree" -- another say-nothing remark.

Re: Brain fart

Thank you, Andy (if I may, for the moment, be so familiar) for posting. It really helps a relative newb like me to hear experienced, otherwise "good" drummers making and recovering from mistakes --...

Re: dumb question about keyholing

That's a deliberate keyhole, then? To keep the sweet spot in the right place, as mentioned above?

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

So there's a photo on Meytal's Facebook page that supposedly was taken when Matt Bo Eder was there, but she wasn't there when he saw the other two playing? How did she get a photo of herself with...

Re: Ever look back at videos of yourself playing and cringe?

I'm a woman, so whenever I hear or see recordings of myself, I think I look and sound fat.

But seriously, my playing usually sounds better than I expect. But my voice ... yikes! I hate the sound...

Re: My Band Frustrations

Maybe you could replace Joe and play under another name with the band you're already in ... AND keep playing with Joe as long as you want to.

In other words, your core group would continue to play...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

Sorry for my earlier rant-and-run post! I'm glad I made a few people smile. I figured some of you could relate. :-)

I'm enjoying this thread. Thanks for all the links.

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

It didn't sound snarky to me -- more like he was sympathetically giving you a bit of a hard time. "He played it perfectly in practice!" LOL

People usually can't understand what the hell the guy is...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

If you're not in a band and dealing with all that comes with that, you're really not that good of a drummer. (OK, that's nonsense, but I'm exaggerating to make a point. Bear with me.)

When you can...

Re: Help Learning a Song

Do you mean that you play the fill, but mess it up by starting it on the wrong beat or something like that, and get off track?

I've had that experience when learning covers. To fix it, I had the...

Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

Amy Winehouse.

I don't even listen to her that much, but she was so sad, her voice filled with pain and a deep awareness of the blues (not the music, the feeling), along with a wry sense of humor,...

Re: I Want to Gig!

Great advice from the others! Also, do you hang around where people play music? Other bands' gigs attract musicians, you meet them, you introduce yourself to the guys who are playing, you see the...

Re: Open handed technique

Yes, but that goes to what I was trying to ask you earlier. I play drums either left- or -right-handed, that is true. You don't know which. By your definition of open-handed, how can you tell, by...

Re: Open handed technique

Again, I am not ambidextrous; I'm cross-handed.

Your ignorance of the meaning of "ambidextrous" is the basis of much of your misunderstanding.

I don't mean to insult you. Most people seem to...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

I would like to suggest DsDrummer's Theorem: A player's potential or practical creativity is inversely proportional to the drumset's tomage.

Re: Open handed technique

As I've indicatedd, this is false. I am neither right-handed nor left-handed.

I understand why you don't want to properly address the rest of my post.

Good night.

Re: Open handed technique

By your logic (sic), if you see me playing, you have no idea if I'm playing open-handed or cross-handed. You can't tell if any drummer you don't know is playing open or crossed, because you don't...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Sounds like you believe in extremes. So I guess you drive 500 mph on the freeway, then? I mean, if 25 mph is too slow and 70 mph is pretty good, then why not 100 mph or 200 mph or 500 mph? You can't...
