Re: Talking salespeople down in price

Interesting. I wonder if we polled musicians about whether they liked negotiating and compared it to the general population, what we'd find. My guess is that most musicians aren't crazy about...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

I hate it, too, Larry. It seems like such a waste of time to bargain. One of us knows how much she wants and the other knows how much he's willing to spend. Why do we have to play this game where I...

Re: Extra sharp chisel 1 - finger 0 :(

That looks awful, Andy. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Larry, I'd recommend approaching headphones with the same "straying out of my comfort zone is a good thing" attitude. Anything I don't like or don't do well, I look at as an invitation to get better...

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

I agree with Bermuda that, when in doubt, replicating the patterns of the drum part as closely as possible is ideal. Unless the artist tells you otherwise, s/he probably wants that.

But I have to...

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I started getting concerned about hearing protection when I started playing loud music a few years ago. I chose these on a recommendation from a fellow musician and love them. They maintain noise...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

I sure don't have Bill Ray's credentials, but for what little it's worth coming from me, I concur 100% with the content of this post.

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Maybe my favorite Morello solo on YouTube. The left hand at 1:42 is from another planet. A master. http://youtu.be/Qh-nGxqo1N4

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

True enough!

On a related note, have you guys seen that clip of a band destroying Final Countdown, by Europe? I'm not sure if that was trolling, but I'm absolutely positive it was hilarious.

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

If this is trolling by the drummer, that would be the best thing ever. I love good trolling and I fantasize about pulling off something like that.

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

I can't bring myself to bag on these folks. I guess I have a soft spot for fellow musicians, no matter how far they still have to come.

Spoiling the party,

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

I'm not nostalgic for mono or anything, but some of those tracks that featured exaggerated stereo separation with drums in one channel and vocals in another sound terrible. At least keep the rhythm...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

I have played with a guitarist who sometimes uses one and it's awful. As you say, it's not a metronome; it captures all of HIS imperfections and then repeats them. His playing is going to have a...

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

Depending on the musical tastes of the person who asks, I try to come up with an easily identifiable drum part from a song s/he knows. So if it's someone my age, maybe 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, My...

Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

Okay, guys. I am committing to making a trip out to Steve's store. I may place an order and then take delivery, or I might be too impatient and just drive up there one weekend and soak it all in just...

Re: Tempo comfort zones

That is very interesting. Resting heart rate of 60bpm?! Do you run marathons?! Very impressive.

Re: Tempo comfort zones

Yeah, this is basically what I do. It takes a long time, but so does everything important, I suppose.

Re: Tempo comfort zones

That's a good idea, going double- and half-time. I've done that, but not rigorously. I should explore that more.

Re: Tempo comfort zones

Very interesting. There have been times when, at a really slow tempo, I've been tempted to play the motion to smaller note subdivisions without actually playing them. I think that's what you're...

I hate that. I would never upload someone else playing without vetting it through them first.

Haha. You got me, Grea! I should take my own advice, it's true.

Yes, I do experience what you're talking about when navigating different kinds of music.

I actually thought about starting a...

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

Of course, but sometimes we're rehearsing a new song and we have to learn the parts, so it's not so much about feel and precision as just hitting the right notes and figuring out where the breaks...

Re: Annoyed and disappointed with myself

Who reported that you didn't play loud enough? Audience members?

I don't necessarily put this on the drummer. The band has a collective mix that needs to be worked out. If the band didn't have a...
