Re: What if we quantized Bonham?

Re: A dozen ways to save for gear...

Two of those suggestions are:

11. Boost Your Income

Change something. Because what you are doing now isn't working.

Do you jam with other musicians?

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

I made a recording of my practice a few days ago. I was surprised, I sound better than I thought I did.

Re: Cool Drumming (The Wrong Kind!)

I wouldn't play when it is that cold and windy. It's no fun at all. And if the wind speed is about 20 MPH it can blow cymbals over.

I heard a story about some prospector with a metal detector finding a huge gold nugget someplace out west.

Re: Gigging on an Imperialstar?

I think a Tama Imperialstar is an intermediate level kit. Good heads (you might look at Remo pinstripes, EMAD 2 for the bass drum) and good cymbals can help a lot. You also have to play well. Good...

I hope the guitarist has been playing with metronome or drum machine because otherwise their timing might be variable. Let us know how it works out.
