Re: Ideal live set up for Drummer

Turn everything up, set the drums at front of the stage, or better, near the bar. Job done!

Re: Conceptual vs physical development

I personally have matured in my drumming in the last few months. I find myself thinking about what Im about to play, and have found that there is loads of time while Im playing. Before, I felt almost...

Re: 528 drummers: Anyone here involved in this?

That's me bottom right of the 1st pic, facing away from the camera. Number 76! Was a fantastic day, such an amazing feeling when 582 snare drums hit simultaneously!

I also have a video posted on...

Fitting new stuff around your existing setup

I've started a fairly busy programme of kit expansion recently, with a 2nd floor tom, a set of rototoms, a 2nd ride and a new crash. Have been playing around with new setups, basically starting...

Re: Open hand playing

I'm left handed and play open but keep my ride on the right of the kit. It's just the way I learnt. It's good cos it developed my weaker side and I can play patterns on the hats with my left and on...

Thomas Lang UK clinics

I went to Thomas' clinic in Manchester yesterday. Wow is that guy good! But also he was really funny and seemed like a great guy, much more than the heartless, soulless drum machine some have...

Re: Tinnitus, anyone?

I remember the exact moment my tinnitus kicked in. I was a punter at a gig, and as I walked past the speaker stack I physically felt it, right to my teeth. Usually after gigs the ringing stops by the...

Re: No respect, I tell ya.

Aarrgh, the guitarist in my band is always hitting my cymbals with his ring. Drives me crazy. And when he has a proper go on the kit he plays the kick flat footed. I'm sure it was him who put my...

Re: need tips for practicing with bands

On a related note, when you are writing a new song and once you have got your main part sussed, do you always play the same fills every time you play? My band are progressive metal, so the song...

Re: Raymond Herrera

But what a leap to Demanufacture from Soul Of A New Machine. It's like a completely different band. Anyone who doubts Ray's hands should listen to this album before commenting. He can do it, just...

Re: Egos

The guitarist in my band doesn't really have an ego as such, but he has personality defects that can make him very hard to be around sometimes. He's younger than the rest of us and this is his 1st...

Re: How to Write good metal/deathcore drum parts and breakdowns.

Best advice I can give is listen to the guitar parts. You can either match what they play for a heavy 'in sync' (not N'Sync!) feel, or offset yourself, to accent certain bits. For breakdowns, I would...

Re: Rototoms, Mini Timbales, or Octobans

What mounting is on the underside of rototoms? If you take the straight bar off the set, how do you mount them individually? Do they have short arms to clamp? I'm thinking of buying some from eBay...

Re: Left hand dominant/right hand kit

Hey I just had an epiphany! I'm gonna move my ride to the left next the hats. I think I used to have it there years ago, gotta be worth playing with my whole setup again. Woo, how exciting :)
