Re: Some band drama

If i read between the lines correctly, you're looking for/wanting commitment, right?

Re: My live playing sucks

My little contribution...

Like you stated before; sound and hearing. I feel really insecure when i don't hear my bandmates. A typical stage setup is the drummer between the amps and the PA way in...

Re: Heel up - arrrgh!

My 2 cents...

I have the exact opposite 'problem' haha. I try to play heel down, but I'm lacking the strength in my shins to play that way. Fast double bass stuff with heel up no problem. Anyway,...

Re: Songs for beginner?

Weezer - Hashpipe

Straightforward with some basic fills, but you can also enjoy all the crashriding in it ;)

Re: Odd time signature songs for beginners

Re: Turning Points?

The first real change was when my sister introduced me to Dream Theater somewhere in 2002 (believe the song was Overture 1928). At that time i listened a lot to Status Quo, Queen and Dire Straits...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

I count/write always the 'e' regardless of 8th or 16th notes, but when writing down i do it that way like you mentioned above. In my example i was referring to 8th notes.

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

Re: remembering a tune

When i learn a new song (cover or own song) and struggle to remember what to play when/where, i make 'cheat sheets'. Just a piece of paper with notes. I don't work with notations, but i write it down...

Re: Ever have a drumming dream?

Re: New "quiet" drum kit !

I also use the Silentstroke's and the L80's at home and they far surpass any electric kit IMO. I have taken off the reso heads, cut a big hole in some old Pearl Protone heads and put those on the...

Re: What's the best snare you have tried?

My Pearl (Limited Edition) Kapur snare, 14x6.5".
Has such a nice dry tone to it, but you can really crank it up so it produces a great 'pop' sound you normally get from piccolos, but due to size and...

Re: I'm tired of standard drumkits. Need inspiration and ideas

I always like the OSI setup that Mike Portnoy used, but can't find any pics on the internet of that kit. His right side of the Siamese Monster kit was modelled after it with some alterations.

Re: Hitting bass drum feels "Weak"

I agree with the spring tension, but it could also be that the head detunes faster when playing a lot of double bass (meaning that the lugs come loose). But that you would notice over time, because...

Re: Beginner drum set

To weigh in to discussion; it depends on your goals and if you can play already. Assuming that you can, since you play percussion, so the essence is there ;)
