Re: An Open Apology

Argh, you didn't ban PFOG intentionally?

Never mind, eh.

Re: Beginner's book?

Possibly a bit pricy, and you need to read French, but this:

Re: The Choice to Play the Drumset

- Was the decision to play the drums 100% your own?

No, but I'd always wanted to.

- Were you presented with the choice (by an adult) of selecting an instrument by which to learn music, and...

Re: Talk about a drumming revelation you've had

^^ Both of the above, but the second bit also depends on the bass player. S/he has to lock into me as much as I have to lock into her/him, enabling me to do my job, and I've played with some...

Re: Got stage names?

Oh god yes, as you know. Only three people in my drumming circle call me by the name on my birth certificate, and I wish they didn't - it just doesn't fit.

I have a different name for every band...

Re: UK Drum Show - who's coming?

Are we fated never to meet? GAH!

Re: What's actually going well for you in your world of music?

I've ditched my "best" band that nobody wanted to hire. (And I didn't like most of them much, and most of them were tossers.)

Now I am left with a band that isn't the best band in the world, but...

Re: Drummerís Place In Band

I'm a classically-trained (albeit dreadful) pianist; I read and write music; and I compose. I've just left a band because they had no idea what I did (and they should have).

Too many times I've...

Re: First paid gig!

RRAAAHHH!

Well done you, and your band!

If your band hasn't realised that you're a "girl", there's no reason why anybody else should think otherwise!

I totally get what you're saying,...

Re: Influencing people close to you with music

Mr Madge SNORES if I drag him to the opera.

He's so lucky that 30 years down the line, we're still married.

Re: A New Journey

Oh no.

Mitch and I came to DW at about the same time, and at about the same point in our journey as drummers. We hit it off immediately, for both of the above reasons and more.

He is one of...

Re: Instrument infatuation

This, and more importantly for me, the way it sounds. When it doesn't sound the way I expect it to, it completely throws me.

Me too, chicken.

Just tell me when to start baking.

You're one of my best DW friends, and I can't wait to meet you.

Crikey Mitch, that's not great news and I'm very sorry to hear it. All my very best wishes to you, my friend.

Re: Get better Andy!

Oh phew - I knew that if sheer bloody-mindedness had anything to do with it, you'd make a remarkable recovery. And when you think about it, practice-pad work is probably the least painful...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Yes, absolutely - but one of the points I was making was that I was "encouraged" to be something I wasn't. I learned to be that something, and as an adult, it was very difficult to unlearn it. Your...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

James and I were separated at birth.

I've said it a bazillion times before, and I say it again with even more vehemence: I was born to be a drummer. Alas, in my youth I was contaminated with...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Larry, I haven't been on here for, like, ages, but did I ever tell you that I love you? (I know I did, but I love you even more now.) I'd replace "Dad" with "Mum", obviously :)

MADgeFest 2018: important update

It's with great regret that I have to inform DW that the Fest will not now take place on 12th May as originally scheduled.

We're looking to find another Saturday later in the year, maybe July or...

Re: Dark Classical Music, with lots o' percussion

No there isn't, but there's a considerable amount of string-playing that sounds percussive.

Re: Dark Classical Music, with lots o' percussion

Some truly excellent suggestions here. I'm going to throw in a curved ball and suggest Vivaldi, and specifically the Four Seasons which everybody thinks they're sick to death of, through having had...

Re: London Drum Show

I admit to having a slight vested interest in favour of UKDS versus LDS, but I would much prefer that Drumming should be the overall winner.

Was it Olympia again? The acoustics are AWFUL there. ...
