Re: Movies that Feature Drumming

Great thread idea!

I liked Drumline.
Also: Beware of Mr. Baker (documentary about Ginger B)

Does anyone know of any other good documentaries of drummers?

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Good post, Mike.

As a fellow female, I can sympathise to a degree with her in feeling that music might be taking him away for her. I agree with the above posts that it comes from insecurity. I...

Re: Jazz ride pattern - looking for good advanced technique videos on YouTube

Thanks, 8Mile! That's an excellent video by Andew Hare. I found his blog about creating an arrangement a few months ago - that's also really good.



Thanks, cornelius. I'll check it out.

Re: I Want to Gig!

About the age thing, maybe you could mention you are a "drummer of the late 70' vintage..." Or similar.

Or I have seen people say in ads: "looking for fellow musicians 30+"

I think your ad might attract people similar to you ... I found it just about right and I'm a science geek type who plays an instrument and probably about your age...

Re: Strange woman found lurking in the workshop ;)

Sounds like an excellent day, Andy and Madge! :)

Re: Rhythm section practice – a good way to improve the band’s time
