Re: Ghost Drummer for Kiss, Jimi, Alice Cooper etc

Though I read this in Modern Drummer (I think) many years ago, and is not about a particular drummer being replaced, I still find it pretty interesting and relevant to this thread. Lionel Ritchie...

Re: Tuning

A concert tom has only one head and it sounded that bad? Hmmm.

I haven't actually tried it yet myself. It seems most people who responded to him on youtube had great results. I usually like my...

Re: Tuning

There is a simple tuning method, and I know you've already heard of it. It's called Evans 360 drumheads. :)

Re: Tuning

Hi Hollywood Jim,

So true. There are loads of opinions.

I actually like a bit of overtone, or even lots of overtone, that may sound weird from the drum throne. I think the drums sound better...

Have you seen this for tuning toms?

Re: To mention or not to mention?

A lot of modern worship music has drumming that is played in a very busy style, and I don't care for most of it. It is "in" to play a lot of notes. To me, it makes the music messy and it sounds lousy...

Re: To mention or not to mention?

I think some people don't want to appear too negative in church and so they may "over praise" the new guy or girl to show their support, and to make the new musician feel good and at home. I wouldn't...

Re: Remo Quduras

The Remo's with those type of lugs were "Encore's." I don't have any experience with them, but I know some pro's out there used them (i.e. Terry Bozzio). I own a Remo Master Touch and Master Edge kit...

Re: Anyone use multiple rides?

I always want 2 rides when I play. I like to use a regular all-purpose ride and a flat ride too. I love the flat for the real mellow stuff and the other for more volume. I never could figure out why...

Re: The Mysterious Freddie Gruber

I always thought that the magic of Gruber was his unusual way of analyzing a particular drummers habits and methods and showing that particular drummer how he can improve or change it to make playing...

Re: Traditional Grip

That video also reveals that there is no need to tilt your snare away from you to play traditional grip, which some drummers still recommend. Or maybe they don't anymore...I don't know... :)

Those maple VF SD11's are one of my favorite sticks as well.

Re: Songs that change BPM

The number one hit by the Bee Gees "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart" seems to fluctuate the tempo at certain spots. Or is it my imagination? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTQiT58AbE0

Re: Here's One You May Never Have Seen

I think he was using either Zildjian A's or Paiste 602s. He was closely associated with Paiste and they created his own 602 cymbal set called the "Joe Morello Set" at one time.

Re: Crap at tuning toms, so what do you think of this?

I'm lousy at tuning drums myself, so I'm no expert. To me, it's more about the cymbals. But, I like what you did. It sounds nice to me. It's subjective though, and others may think differently. I...

Re: The bashing impulse

As someone already stated, I have the opposite problem too. I was basically forced to play quietly while learning to play the drums. So over the years I learned how to play real quiet, with sticks....

Re: Playing Hymns...

I used to attend a church 20 years ago that eventually added a drummer after not having any in the past. So I was very interested in how he would handle the hymns. I assumed he would NOT play on 99%...

Re: Playing Hymns...

I've been playing both hymns and contemporary songs in my church for many years now, and I like playing the hymns the most. Like others have said, be sparse with your playing. Never overplay. Keep...

Re: Perceptions

Just this morning I mentioned to my wife what I discovered way back in the 80s in my rather small "music room" in the house I grew up in. I used to love to move my kit around every couple of months...

Re: Piccolo snares--who uses one, and why?

I'm a big fan of piccolo's. I use a piccolo frequently because of their brightness and extreme sensitivity. I'm generally a light player and I rarely hit "rimshots" on my snare. But if I wanted that...

Re: I stunk up the place....

I play just about every Sunday at my church and I mess up a lot more than I care to admit. Part of my problem is I can't see the worship leader from my vantage point. I'm off to the side in a kind of...

Re: Poor and Insulting Service at LI Drum Center

I expected to read some horror story about this drum shop, and instead it seems to me like a typical experience that occurs in most small stores of any type. I work in an auto parts store, and I see...
