Re: Tama Iron Cobra Adjustments

There is a double-kick cobra at the studio I practice at and I hate it. I find it stiff and horrible. It ain't mine, so I don't want to adjust it. The dude, to whom it belongs, has the beater at...

Re: Traditional Vs. Matched

My favorite Buddy Rich video on the Tube of U is when he is screaming and dropping F-Bombs at his band...he makes Gordon Ramsay look like the Pope!

Re: Traditional Vs. Matched

I used matched, because, well, I am a newbie. Traditional may come later on in my lessons. It looks freakin' cool, tho, especially when Joe Morello is using it! His left hand scares me!

Re: Pirating, us and the future.

Do you think all music and instructional material should be free?
No, not unless the artist chooses to make the material available for free. I believe the artists should get paid for their work. ...

Re: How often do you guys play?

I did two hours tonight...I think I need more to build up stamina; I tire with a fast song and lag behind the beat. I am not sure if adding more hours would help or wipe me out! I assume this is...

Re: How often do you guys play?

It would be nice to practice for 8 hours...but I have a job and other stuff to do...I am about one hour as well...sometimes 2. As a beginner, 2 hours really starts to hurt my hands and arms.
