Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hey Drummerrobin,

Hope I'm not sticking my nose in where it isn't welcomed...

Consider equalization on the tom channels.

Dropping out the highs where the tom is not singing will help a lot...

Re: Suggestions for an intermediate Drummer?

I was still playing on a low end cb700/mataeo set past 25 years playing drums.

Its not the set that determines how you sound(within limits of the extreme)...its the set that determines how in debt...

Re: Endings

Depends so much on the arrangement of the song.

I think a good drumming end to a song follows the song itself...obviously...

I don't think there is a formula...I think there is taste,...

Re: Left or Right play?

Remember that you don't have to set your kit up like all the others you see.

I have my HH directly opposite from me sharing my snare stand...I can address it equally with right or left hand...

Re: Superstitious Minds

Its bad luck to wait until after the gig to get paid...get at least 50% up front. ; )

Re: Rock and roll....over?

Re: The Bass Pedal: Taking our jobs away

I think I'll write an app that observes musical performance...that way we can retire the need for an audience...unless you are simply trying to make money....then an audience might be nice.

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

Any conclusion would require statistically significant quantified observations...

No 2 bands have the same audience environment.

No 2 gigs by a band have the same audience environment.

Re: On teaching

Abusive behavior on either the student or teachers part is bad teaching/learning theory.

Abusive behavior on either a band leader or band members part is bad business theory.

Re: Electronic Drums to Acoustic

I did much the same in the latter 90's.

Took me about a year to get truly comfortable again on an acoustic set.

Re: Acoustic Drums VS Electronic Drum Kits

E-kit is no guarantee that neighbors wont complain.

I had complaints when playing my e-kit in apartment. The noise of the strike on the pad/pedal on the bass pad was loud enough to hear.\

Re: What if you unwittingly stole someones gig?

If the drummer you are asked to replace gives you substantial referrals/fill-ins and you cant live without them, then decline.

If its a casual relationship with the drummer to be replaced and you...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Another way to say 'infinity flexible' is 'lacking internal integrity'.

Get your gigs contracted...refuse drum equipment share riders....otherwise your work on the music can be for not.

Re: Peart - would you hang out with him?

kinda catch 22...

How would I know unless I met him?

Remember...everything you have read or seen is part of his profession as an entertainer. I don't believe we could truly know who he is...

Re: RUSH retirement rumor

I'd go see them in Vegas...would be great if they made their show stationary...we'd go see 'em....and it would be less wear/tear/discomfort for them.

Maybe 2 shows a month...keep writing so there...

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

Its a rare musician that is satisfying to play with who can't keep time for themselves, in my opinion.
