Re: What do you say when....

I basically agree with everything that they say, and go and play my set like I normally would. Then they'd come up and say it sounded better the way you did it. And just leave it at that....

Re: The Douchiest Drummers of All Time

Agree with the number 1 being Lars Ulrich. I never really liked the dude or Metallica for that matter. I prefer Megadeth personally!!!

Re: Drum Snobs

Yeah maybe, but even still I think you'd want to chat with a fellow musician to kinda calm the nerves down. I do that to get me settled in... That's just me though.

Re: Snare is not cutting through!

I recommend cranking that bottom head. I crank my bottom heads and my snares really cut through the music. I play Alternative Hip-Hop so the snare needs to stand out. I also play mainly...

Re: Drum Snobs

Just recently at a gig, I was trying to strike a conversation with the drummer that was opening up for us. He just seemed to not want to have anything to do with me. We were talking about drums and...

Re: Myths of recording studio drums?

Yes. I'm usually first to track and the others use me as the click. They will build their parts around me. I'm usually recording to a "scratch" track, and they build from there.

Re: Drummers that overplay

Re: Drummers that overplay

I agree with the OP, that we sometimes tend to overplay and take away from the music. Maybe I'm old school, and during our set's I don't do a whole lot of fills. I tend to keep a solid groove and...

Re: Some indie shops not trying hard enough?

I see that here in Chicago as well. Now what I find more discerning is that I often find that the INDIE shop's are more expensive than the big box shop, but you'll more than likely find a rare gem...

Re: Why use traditional grip on drumset?

I use mostly trad grip on the drum-set for a powerful back beat for the music I play, which is Alternative Hip-Hop. I find using it has allowed my left hand to move faster around the kit, a...
