Re: How do drum shops stay in business?

More fluidity for lefty's with a righty setup

I am left-handed. I play on a right handed setup, except open handed (not crossed) on the hats and my ride is on the left (between the hats and 1st tom). This has worked for me for almost 20 years....

Re: Drum solos within the song form

I really struggle with this too. During our shows, I get a solo in a song that has a strong 4-on-the-floor dance beat. I REALLY have to restrain from bringing out my good chops, because it can...

Re: Best Drum Track Of All Time

Steely Dan's Josie - Jim Keltner. It's very simple, but complements the song perfectly.

Re: 4 piece drumsets taking a comeback?

I'm left handed, but still play with a mostly right handed set up. To me, the 4-piece set-up feels assymetric and unbalanced since my ride is on the left. That said, for righties it is great. It...
