Re: Lug Locks or Rimshot-Locs

There's the very real possibility that you are more discerning about your snare sound than I am...I don't usually exercise a whole lot of finesse in the bands I play with. 'Close enough' on the snare...

Son of a gun...I never knew that. I may just have to try them...



Usually I'm just checking tension - I'm always surprised at how close I can come to ideal tuning just through 'feel'. But if I...

Re: Lug Locks or Rimshot-Locs

This raises an interesting question that I've had for a while: don't the heads themselves 'de-tune' as they stretch and loosen?

In that case, keeping the lug in one position would, by my...

Re: Kick snare and hi hat.

My guitarist sent me that clip, ostensibly as an example of what could be achieved as a band. My responses:

1) Sure, if I can boost my talent/ability by about 6000%.

2) Sure, if you agree to...

Re: The Sound Of Drums

I rehearse most of the time in one of two rehearsal rooms, each for a particular band.

In the one - an actual rehearsal room built into an old warehouse, fairly larger, with carpet and some...

Re: Stage Etiquette article

So do I! What's strange is the resistance I get when I show up with my own stands; I'm repeatedly asked, 'I thought you were sharing the kit?' or 'Can't you just switch out the cymbals?' People -...

Re: Drumming for a living

Around where I live (central Georgia) there are, amazingly, a few guys I know who make livings off of playing - and without even having to go to Atlanta! (Or at least rarely having to...) I could...

Re: Stage Etiquette article

Well, of course there are various situations where the actions I describe are impossible: shared kits, split stages, etc. etc. I'm referring to the usual multi-band bills, at least where I play, with...

Re: Stage Etiquette article

This could be an entire article unto itself...

Don't take your cymbals off, one-by-one, while still on stage. Move the damn cymbals and stands offstage, THEN start disassembling. That allows the...

Re: Is this normal....

Ten years is a long time to do anything. You get used to it - no matter what it is - and then, when it's gone, the void is noticeable.

I once read that a lot of convict's first instincts upon...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

I'm not a drummer who uses a ton of fills. In fact, I take pleasure in coming to parts of a song where a fill might predictably be, and just play through. It's amazing how often that can add more...

Re: Kick Snare & Hat

Like Larry said above, it depends on who's using it.

I saw Junior Brown several years ago - full band, with two guitars, lap steel, bass, backup singer. The drummer had a snare drum. Period. And...

Re: I don't understand why people close mic

I had an aversion to close-miking as well, but it turns out I just didn't have much experience with people who did it WELL.

Just last week I recorded in someone's personal studio. They used 13...

Re: Musical memory

This is very interesting to me - way back in a previous life, I was involved in post-grad education seeking teacher certification.

One of the theories we were taught regarding learning is that of...

Re: Moongel kills opposite lug!

Read an interview with Roger Hawkins where he called moongels 'the greatest things ever.'

Horses for courses, I guess. I never use moongels when playing with my loud rock band, but I've found...

Re: non-specific criticism

I think you did the exact right thing.

You listened to a negative critique, and instead of freaking out about it, you took it to heart and gave the recording a critical review.

So you don't...

Re: better tecknique on pillows, than praktise pad !

Hmm...sounds weird. On first impression, sounds like the worst of both worlds: not as squishy as a pillow, not as firm as a practice pad. But I'll have to give it a shot.

So you just take an old...

Re: better tecknique on pillows, than praktise pad !

A pillow's great for developing strength and stamina, but it doesn't do too much for precision. When I feel like my technique is getting sloppy, I use the hard-rubber side of my old RealFeel. It's...

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

My advice?...stick with it!

It's a tough transition. After three decades of pretty much just playing as loud as I can, I joined a cover band that does small, low-volume gigs (restaurants, lodges,...

And yet, I did. Our brains work in mysterious ways...

Re: YOUR BETTER AT BECAUSE OF DRUMS

This is such an interesting concept, and one that I'm very familiar with - I believe drumming has helped me immeasurably with my work life.

I'm a graphic designer, and I've noticed over the years...

Re: Intro to 'Take it Easy'

It really perplexed me, too - even when I was told how to count it, it never 'felt' right.

Very helpful was finding this live version where Glen Frye counts it in. Hear it once and you'll never...

Re: "too Busy"

Playing becomes 'too busy' not because there are too many fills, it's when those fills are in the wrong places.

The right fill at the right place can greatly enhance a song, and if a drummer can...
