Re: A little survey about other musicians opinions

The trouble is, some monkeys think they can.

Re: heel toe or swivel?

Well, it really boils down to what kind of music you're playing. I like jazz which requires soft bass work plus accents, so I use heel down + heel-toe. I don't like pounding, and think this is the...

Re: Check this Drummer Out!!!

That's classy pocket. However, it doesn't go with your Keith Moon quote. He doesn't bang his drums -- he gets the most out of them by playing soft and loud, with finesse.
