Re: Help Learning a Song

Do you mean that you play the fill, but mess it up by starting it on the wrong beat or something like that, and get off track?

I've had that experience when learning covers. To fix it, I had the...

Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

Amy Winehouse.

I don't even listen to her that much, but she was so sad, her voice filled with pain and a deep awareness of the blues (not the music, the feeling), along with a wry sense of humor,...

Re: I Want to Gig!

Great advice from the others! Also, do you hang around where people play music? Other bands' gigs attract musicians, you meet them, you introduce yourself to the guys who are playing, you see the...

Re: Open handed technique

Yes, but that goes to what I was trying to ask you earlier. I play drums either left- or -right-handed, that is true. You don't know which. By your definition of open-handed, how can you tell, by...

Re: Open handed technique

Again, I am not ambidextrous; I'm cross-handed.

Your ignorance of the meaning of "ambidextrous" is the basis of much of your misunderstanding.

I don't mean to insult you. Most people seem to...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

I would like to suggest DsDrummer's Theorem: A player's potential or practical creativity is inversely proportional to the drumset's tomage.

Re: Open handed technique

As I've indicatedd, this is false. I am neither right-handed nor left-handed.

I understand why you don't want to properly address the rest of my post.

Good night.

Re: Open handed technique

By your logic (sic), if you see me playing, you have no idea if I'm playing open-handed or cross-handed. You can't tell if any drummer you don't know is playing open or crossed, because you don't...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Sounds like you believe in extremes. So I guess you drive 500 mph on the freeway, then? I mean, if 25 mph is too slow and 70 mph is pretty good, then why not 100 mph or 200 mph or 500 mph? You can't...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

I must be doing something wrong, because I can't imagine playing without the top felts! I've had to do it a few times (OK, so I can imagine it — you got me on a technicality), and if I had to hit the...

Re: Ludwig Breakbeats Kit

I just got my Breakbeats. The hoops are metal.

My first "new" kit! I'll post about it in "your gear" (or "show us your new stuff" or whatever it's called) after I play 'em a bit.

Yay! New...

So now it's "checque," instead of "cheque"??

Re: Strange gigs.....

I'm the drummer in a heavy metal ukulele band called Mötley Uke. We played last year at a self-storage place. They were having some sort of occasional open house/party with entertainment and food and...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Hey, remember that thread where you complained about not being immediately hired after an audition, even though they said they liked how you played?

I think I figured out why.

Re: Cool muffling!

I found that to be a creative way to get different sounds out of the kit, although I kept waiting for something to fall off. :-)

Rather than thinking of it as muffled, I started to hear a...

Re: I feel like I'm in a bit of a pickle.

Take your own kit (all of it). When he asks why, tell him you've decided to play right-handed.

After you set up, when he asks you why you set up your gear left-handed, say, "Oh, um ..." and run...

Re: Drum Fill Friday quiz

2/5 correct — the first and last questions.

Of course I get the most obvious, easiest ones.

"Jazz? Durrrr."

Re: Drummers around 5'6" - What size drums do you have?

I just fell down a rabbit hole, researching this kit. This might finally be the right kit for me!

Thank you!

Re: Looking for a snare like Lars Ulrich's (No haters please, lets keep this professional people)

Yup, I've been there. As a guitar player, waaay back in the '80s. I hated going straight into the board. But that's another thread.
