Re: Elvin Jones Documentary

WOW - I have not seen that word "Chromesthesia" in a long time! I had a bad head injury several years ago - for several weeks after the injury sounds would cause me to "see" colors. Loud, sudden...

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

As Larry said early on cymbals are going to be the hardest thing to get right and like I said as a newbie you won't know what sounds good. It is hard for long time drummers to remember but at one...

Beat Challenge

My teacher, among other things, has me working on some new beats. He has introduced 16th notes on the bass and I am having a hard time thus far getting things to groove. I was wondering if any of you...

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

The problem with that is he is not going to really know WHAT sounds good right now - at least I did not know what sounded good when I was brand spanking new. And everyone is like me right?

I sure...

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

Everything Larry said -

I have had good experience buying cymbals on Craigslist BUT only after I kind of had an idea what I liked cymbal-wise. If you are starting out like I did all you care...

Re: Who started 'here' long before they went 'there'?

When I first took drum lessons, as about a 10 year old, my teacher would not let me close to the student kit he had setup in his studio. I played on a rubber practice pad for about a month or two...

Re: Help with a Stones song
