Re: Tuning Drums for Audition

Hmmm. I would say to get your drums tuned where they are optimized for your playing. Once done, leave them there. Are you not confident in your current tuning?

Re: Musicians Union?

As Bermuda stated residuals are what keeps you going after you've been working for 20+ years and you've started to semi-retire or slow down. It's great to get union checks in the mail for past work.

Re: Ringo and Greg Bissonette sitting in with Toto

Re: Do you vacialte? I do a lot...

Changing styles is just part of being a good musician. To me, it doesn't mean you're vacillating or indecisive. Just creative and capable. I can go from a rock gig straight to a blues/jazz or...

Re: Cost to ship a kit?

There's a big difference between what you are charged in shipping to have drums shipped to you and what you pay to ship drums. Depending on how many boxes you ship expect $80 - $120 to ship drums in...

Re: What songs do you really like the drumming on?

You guys much be too young. Probably because it was the first REAL solo I learned keeps it special to me. One of the longest solos remains my favorite - Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.

Re: Do my drums grow with me?

You're body, back, arms and legs need to be properly aligned and comfortable. You will need to adjust your throne, drums and cymbals as you change technique and grow. Your drums, however, will not...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

No. Since I've been left-handed all my life so I don't let other's effect my life. Play, don't play, set it up how you like... It's something you have to embrace. Use your own equipment or be ready...

Re: Applications for 13" tom

About anywhere a 12 or 14 would work. You can tune it as you like. Heck, you can play with 3 14's if you like.

Re: Conflicted on whether to join a band.

Cart behind the horse. Audition/gig with them and decide if you, and they, are a good fit. If so, and you want to, join. If not, enjoy the audition and move on.

Re: Moving Past Sickness?

Part of being a pro is playing when you don't want to, and don't feel like it. You simply buck up and get the job done.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

As you can see there is no -"uniform" shoe any group of drummers wear. I generally wear basketball shoes - high-top leather, comfortable shoes. Every drummer has his/her own preference. You can't...

Re: More creative drumming with a cape on?

There's probably a reason we haven't seen drummers in capes since Keith Moon. Tough to pull off.

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

I've been drumming professionally for 35 years, and playing for 45, and I too have never experienced this. Likewise, I find it impossible that you could get "air lock" with holes. It's physically...
