Re: Which band to quit.

Re: Life

Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. Things will get better, you just have to stay positive and not back down from the challenge. I'm not sure what kind of gear you are trying to sell, but if...

Re: Collecting Cymbals?

To each their own. If you have have the money and want to blow it on a something you will never use, go for it. Personally, I don't have that kind of cash to be slinging around, so I save up and...

Re: Impossible drum challenge. - Cover this song

You haven't seen anyone else do what... Play that fast? Watch some videos of Slipknot and Lamb Of God. Joey Jordison and Chris Adler EASILY hit those speeds, and with WAY more difficult pattern...

Re: Sorry, but this is another "Band Woe's" thread...

Thank you all for you feedback. I guess maybe my remaining bandmates were on the right track. It is very frustrating when people change their minds and feelings about something that effects others...

Re: Sorry, but this is another "Band Woe's" thread...

You're right, it does happen a lot... too much, in fact. But I get that you can't change a person to make them want to do something they don't want to do. What I am curious about is what about the...

Sorry, but this is another "Band Woe's" thread...

I really would like some honest feedback on this...

My band of 6 years has recently encountered a situation we aren't really quite sure how to handle. All of us are the original members, which as...

Re: If I had my way...

I like the idea, but with that kinda money in heads, I would hope there were some bonuses not usually offered. Like when it's time to change out heads, you would accept the old ones back and...

Re: Hecklers

I can't really remember a time where we were ever heckled by a crowd member. I do recall a few situations where other bands we were playing with would run their mouths a little. I've had a singer...

Re: What is the most hilarious question someone has asked you about drums/drumming?

I was in a band that was auditioning guitarists. I don't ask for much, but understanding a basic 4/4 time sig is kind of a must. Anyway, I was asked the following...

"How can it be 'common' if I...

Re: Good drummer ... Good dancer?

I've always wondered this same thing. I have been playing drums/percussion since I was 2 (I'm now 27) and I have never been very good at dancing. I can slow dance and woo the ladies, but that's...

Re: Are section leaders always first chair?

We did audtions all the way through school. If you couldn't play the music, or your instrument, then you had no business leading others in the section. My directors were of the school of thought...

Re: Travis Barker's NEW Solo!!!

I'm confused, I thought this was going to be a solo, not a "play along" to some really horrible sample turned up WAY too loud...? Maybe my definition of a solo is a little off.

Re: this drummer's at the wrong gig

I have to admit, at first glance of this video, I did laugh. But like you said, once you listen, the dude's spot on! For that reason I decided to search for other videos of this guy and stumbled...

Re: Rehearsing on a Studio

I am fortunate enough to not have to go through what you are going through, but an idea I have is maybe try getting some studio rings. They elminate a ton of the overtones, and then if you get the...

Re: Playing in a band VS Playing alone

Don't get discouraged, it takes time, as the others have said. Try not to overthink things when you are playing. Even more so, don't get caught up in your mistakes, because more than likely, the...

Re: My reaction to suggestion of using a sampled bass drum sound..

I feel the same way, I like the natural sound of the drums over any sample. If it was just a suggestion, then that's all it was, no need to get bent outta shape over it. Do what we drummers do,...

Re: I need to sell my kit, what can I get for it.

Without going into the store and asking, it's really anyones guess. From my experience Guitar Center likes to low-ball people so they can make as much as possible when they sell it to the next...

Re: Top 5 Reasons It Sucks to be a Drummer

Very funny article, thank you! It's right on! I don't know how many times I've been asked "are you in the band?" right after I get off stage. But I like it that way. :-)

Re: Creating drum room, need advice

I think you are on the right track as far as finding a way to do this as cheap as possible. Along with some pallets with carpet, putting as many boxes of your storage stuff between you and the walls...

Re: Just a rant....

That's rough... I too like to use my kit, and my kit only! Maybe if you offer to move the unknown 5 piece and set yours up for them it will be less of a problem? I don't see much difference in...

Re: What's Your Drumming Face Like?

I've been told that I have that "out to lunch" look going on, which I haven't seen proof of... yet... But mostly I catch myself biting and/or chewing on my bottom lip when I'm really concentrating.

Re: Opinions, Good, bad, ugly??

I've played on one before, except I think I tried the Dualist one (they also make a TRIPLE beater pedal, WTH?). It kinda was fun to mess around on one, but I would never use it in a real playing...

Re: Open Handed Practice for RH on LH kit

I don't have an electronic kit, but I will sometimes (during practice, not in shows) use my left food on my slave pedal and go to open-handed and play parts of songs when I jam with my band. Like...
