Re: Let's talk soloing, again.

Larry, I know how you feel...I can't remember the last time I felt comfortable soloing, except perhaps for a short solo that I usually play the same over and over again in the same song.

For me...

Re: Drum Shields??

Play behind them, play without them...really not that big a deal depending on the venue. Then again playing behind clear plastic shields is a lot better protection from bar fights than chicken wire...

Re: Drumming with fingers missing

Re: how long is a set? weirdish question

Re: Church Drum Sets

Play every week on a Tama Swingstar 4 piece, Zildjian A Custom Box set and my Yamaha Anton Fig snare. The Tama actually performs very well as the church kit, sturdy, sounds good and is dependable.
