Re: I'm a German auto maker...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist


As a yank, I feel compelled to say....you're pretty much right. I like to think I'm a bit more sane and relaxed than most (no guns needed). But the paranoia of my countrymen is astounding....

Re: Posture

I agree. I see that line of thinking in many areas of life, "XYZ did it the hard/wrong/bad/dangerous/sloppy/inefficient way and he was the GREATEST!". My response, which is usually ignored or not...

Re: Drummers Brains Are Actually Different

I've seen a few of those as well. Perhaps it is self-serving journalists and psychiatrists. What better way to get people talking about your work than to make it complimentary about some group of...

Re: Will it affect your ability to work with other musicians if you're tone deaf?


I have heard a few voice teachers say that unless you are clinically tone-deaf (meaning ZERO ability to differentiate between ANY pitches), you can learn to sing, which means you will first...

Re: Just curious -----------

Apparently I've offended some people by answering a question that was asked. I'm kind of confused by that, as I thought my reasoning was pretty obvious and simple, but I may have been wrong: I don't...

Re: Just curious -----------

I was intrigued by the contest, and might still enter, but a few things have slowed me down:

1. I had concerns similar to Gruntersdad. Although with the rule change, I suppose I'm okay with it...

Re: First use of a click

Not according to Wikipedia, which quotes from Geoffrey Emerick, the engineer on the track:

The tapping "has been incorrectly identified as a metronome in the past", according to engineer Geoff...

Re: Staining drum heads with coffee

GRUNTERSDAD may be correct, I don't know. However, I do know that in older times, tea was actually used for lots of dyeing. Probably a bit easier than coffee, you wouldn't have a bunch of loose...

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

I have a clarinet. I haven't played it in a while, but I've been meaning to get back to it. I played alto and bass clarinet in high school. It's an awesome instrument, good-size pitch range and...

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

I have a love/hate relationship with the Ken Burns doc. It is clearly the largest, most ambitious, longest, most thorough piece ever devoted to jazz. However, although I did say "most thorough",...

Re: Call and response audience participation

If you want really raunchy, check 2 Live Crew "As Nasty as They Wanna Be", lots of 'colorful' call and response on that album.

Re: Do you hear sounds or mechanics when you play?

Same story: I play an e-kit, and I swear I have different 'abilities' and things feel different when different sounds are loaded.

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

Actually it is MUCH easier to do with an e-kit. Just record MIDI and you can move any single note anywhere, perfectly and individually. Also, the DAW will probably have a single "Quantize" button...

Re: Tips on drum rooms?

FYI, know that most residential cloth and foam products (upholstery, curtains, pillows, etc.) that are "fire-resistant" are really only geared to withstand a smoldering cigaret. An actual flame or...

Re: Just a G.A.S. observation

I'm kind of the same with guitars. About ten years ago, I had a lot of money, and I bought some really really nice guitars. I love them, but now I have this crazy sort of melancholy that I can't find...

Re: I don't know whether to take this tour or not

I think it was Mark Twain who said this:
Johnson says "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel ", but I suggest it is the first.

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

^^Some good ideas in any case.

Is it the same song that always has this problem? Maybe the audio file is corrupted. Can you get a new copy of it?

Re: Michael Beinhorn fires drummers.

Only if the founder sold enough of the company to let others have control. For which, they were probably well-paid. Then, it is not really "his own" company.
