Re: Interesting minimalist style...

I think Boomka is spot on. The performance seemed very self (drummer) promoting and the music got lost in his shuffle. IMO the snare was too loud and way too busy. Kinda, like a mid western hailstorm...

Re: Who Here Loves Rock

I don't so much love drumming as much as I love drumming to great rock. If I couldn't drum I'd take up the guitar because I love the music that much. It's not high brow, it's not hard to play. It's...

Who Here Loves Rock

Just sitting here listening to the radio and on comes Twisted Sister's, "Were not Gonna Take It". I crank the volume and within seconds my 13 year old son is doing James Brown like moves across the...

Re: Old School Drumming

Hollywood, your critique of the kids shows an excellent eye and ear. But what did you mean by saying "Very few regular songs played here." What's regular? My regular is Rock as played (stuck) in the...

Re: I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!

I read your post and find my circumstances similar and it really is a personal risk-benefit kind of decision. However, I'd like to point out that hearing loss is not just a function of environment...

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

I play rock and find it much easier to play matched grip for many of the reasons already given. However, when I was contemplating my changeover I found an old interview with Buddy Rich. While he...

Re: 15 for 30 challenge!

Or maybe how my ex-lead guitarist wanted me to play Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight". I kept going slower and he kept saying "That's not my tempo".

Re: DW and Gretsch

BTW I saw an interview with Donald Trump a few days ago. He said Chinese labor rates average $10 an hour and Mexican rate are around $7.50. He predicted the Mexicans would eat all of our lunches. I...

Re: DW and Gretsch

All may look well from our vantage point, but if you are a Gretch employee... look out. IMO DW will soon be "consolidating" operations. I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I think less (and lighter) drums as previously mentioned is the real answer.

1. Play basic. Try a one up, one down tom setup. Then find a good crash ride. One to two less toms and less cymbals =...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Well DMan I guess you have your answer. For some, it's every band for themselves. GIG at any cost and shame anyone who say's "hey, wait a minute".

And, due to the seemingly endless repetition of...

We'll the "pro's" win. No more attitude, foot stomping and petulance for me. I'm selling my kit and buying the finest North American cardboard, (none of those cheap Chinese boxes will do). Pity the...

Re: The worst gig of my life

While touring I've played some very good venues on hired kits that were very different from my own and sometimes with little soundcheck time to futz around with the set up. "Making the same mistakes"...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I think we get your points. Yes, the show must go on, but making the same mistakes over and over is only going to keep you in these crap venues. What some are calling commitment is starting to smell...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I'm with Drummingman. At some point it's time to stand up for yourselves and just say "sorry, that just won't work". Keep saying "ok" and pretty soon most of you will be playing for next to...

Re: New band problems

There has got to be more going on here. You say they can hear the snare on 2 and 4 so how far off can they wander on one beat followed by yet another snare beat ? And as for the bass drum...just mic...

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

I don't know of any on 1 and 3. That just violates my sense of right and wrong. ;)

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

In the mix, the "chic" I get when closing the hat with the foot on 2 and 4 is not a lot of sound when playing rock. Also, I find playing the hat and snare on 2 and 4 to be too basic. So if I'm...
