Re: Sloppy fills

I think something also being forgotten is that good drummers can also have slightly off nights.

Discussing a UK Subs gig post performance Jamie Oliver was explaining how he was a bit miffed that...

I can play some absolutely wonderful passages using my hands and fingers on the desk at work. Hell if I can transfer them to drums, but I figure I could easily transfer them to a washboard and some...

Re: Sloppy fills

I listen to the music rather than the drumming. I'm just not a good enough drummer to go super critique on anyone else's drumming.

Plus, who knows what another drummers stories are...there may be...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Total mixed bag for me. I've played on some beautiful kits. One of them I specifically asked the owner how he got his toms sounding so beautiful and thanked him for letting me use them. Then there...

Re: The worst gig of my life

That's actually a pretty fair point.

Personally, I don't give a toss about any/all of the above which perhaps colours my thinking. But yeah, good point well made.

Re: Being offered a position you don't really want, but could be an experience?

Personally, if you don't want it then I feel it would be quite selfish to go for it and deny someone who DOES want it and really can commit fully to it.

Just my personal view.

Re: The worst gig of my life

I had absolutely no idea that you could get 7 and 8 string guitars.

That's bloody interesting is that.

Mind you, my mate on guitar struggles with 6 quite enough :-)

Re: The worst gig of my life

Climb down off your high horse feller. It's debate. And your pal has dished out a reasonable amount of 'judgemental insult' as you put it, and ironically so have you.

All in all it was reasonably...

Re: The sound guy

First thing I always do is buy the sound engineer a drink.

I'm relying on him to be nice. And I'm actually quite clueless about sound if I'm honest to myself.

So if he tells me to dampen my...

Totally wrong, with respect.

You could also say that every pool cue is the same, every tennis racket is the same, every violin is the same.

Yet pros will spend thousands to have the right...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Too right.

I've seen street drummers in Manchester (they play just near where I get a tram), carry.....CARRY....their kit to their patch and play as well, if not better, than most drummers I've...

Re: The worst gig of my life

You don't think they all have a different feel, shape, weight, different tuning, different amps, different pedals ?

A half decent guitarist would still make it work. But it's not even an issue...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Those club/venue owners eh, wanting to fill the club by putting four bands on rather than half filling the club putting two bands on.

Complete and utter bastards they are. No respect for drummers

Re: The worst gig of my life

Problem with you and your posts and I actually genuinely don't believe you intend to do it, is you are demonising, and belittling, drummers who just get up and get on with the gig without pissing and...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Guitarists often have to play through other people's amps usually under the same premise and for the same practical reasons.

Re: The worst gig of my life

The issue with drums is purely a practical one. I think if drums could be magically changed over, in full, in the space of 3 minutes like guitars, that there'd be no discussion here.

Hey, we knew...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Correct. Everyone's entitled to use their own gear, which means in the world of the drummer that no-one is.

And I agree. I've played plenty of kits which have been an absolute dream. I've also...

Re: The worst gig of my life

It's NOT exploitation to say to 5 bands, "guys we're using one drum kit, and these guys were here first/we use a backline/you can draw lots".

It's common sense. Not everyone on a multi-band gig...

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

In the band I'm in I am 'Silverback' and it's now a name that has stuck such that people on the circuit and people who follow us call me Silverback.

I quite like it.

Re: The worst gig of my life

So, as I said previously, you should have used your brain and thunk outside the box. Dropped your first song, and spent 4 minutes extra setting the kit up so that you were comfortable with it.
