Re: Tempo change - happens to the best

There was a tempo change, but I'm sure it was hardly noticed by the audience.

The thing I noticed was that for the first few beats the bass and keyboard were not together with the drums. The back...

Re: Changing snare wires with a lighting throwoff...

Are you saying that your throw plate goes lower that the one in the picture when off?

Or that the throw plate stays further away from the shell than the one in the picture when off?

Maybe it...

Re: Changing snare wires with a lighting throwoff...

Hold the phone! I just found a picture of the butt end of a Gretsch snare with a lightning throw off. And it DOES have a tension adjust on the butt end.

Simple:

Re: Changing snare wires with a lighting throwoff...

I searched the internet for pictures of this "lightning" throw off.

I don't get it, how are you supposed to adjust the tension of the snares?
Or maybe there is no adjustment??????

Is there...

Re: WHAT COVER SONGS SHOULD I LEARN?

It depends on what years you are covering songs from.

Cover songs from the 60's and 70's would be different from cover songs from the 80's and 90's.

Here is an easy thing to do.

Re: Ghost notes and shell material (snare)

I keep looking for ghost notes, but I can't find them.

They must be invisible.

Re: Flashy Hi-Hat Work - Practice Suggestions?

Here is what I do.

It is really easy and you can raise and lower the hi hat with your left foot in between notes to get some great groove sounds.

This guy explains it really well:

Re: Ghost notes and shell material (snare)

I agree with Larry.
But I think he is assuming you have a properly tuned snare. If you hit the snare lightly and you don't get a snare sound, or it sounds like a tom, or you get a lot of buzzing...

Re: Covering Songs that Have Percussion

I would use my snare drum with the snares turned off. Accented rim shots.

Listen to "Higher Love" by Steve Winwood. I realized that in this song the drummer probably uses a timbale,

Re: Yamaha Drums

Good to hear that!

Looks like you played with only a bass drum mic. Were your drums nice and loud?

I have not yet used my Live Customs for a gig.

Re: Having trouble with right stick hand...suggestions please?

My guess is carpel tunnel. Keyboard users are very susceptible to it. If it is carpel tunnel you need to get some help with your hand position and your keyboard quickly before it gets worse.

Re: Having trouble with right stick hand...suggestions please?

What do you do to make a living?
Do you work for long hours typing on a computer keyboard?
Or do you use a hammer for several hours a day?
Or?

Re: Favourite hoops and why?

I have a really nice vintage brass shell Ludwig snare drum. I tried 3.0mm and 2.3mm hoops on it. It choked off all of the beautiful overtones. And it dampened the volume. I also tried die cast...

Re: Trouble With Dunnett SS

Yes !

And the worse thing is when the reso snare side head is too thick.
The best reso head I have found is the Evans 200 or Diplomat Hazy. They are very thin, @ 2 mils.

Re: New Guru!

Why would I want to buy a snare drum that will expose my sloppy playing !!!!
