Re: Just Came From Terrible Audition - I sucked!

Strange experience. The irony you may get the gig. You can't tell-they bring you in with little prep so they may not expect you to nail the songs-just want to hear you play and get a feel for fit....

Re: Order of study: moeller, finger technique, push-pull

Re: Pearl Music City Custom.... Whaaaat?

Man that's a high end kit to display such manufacturing defects-their cheaper kits I've had (Forum, Vision , and Decade) all looked great with no defects. My son-in-law has my old Vision kit and I...

Re: A Non-Anonymous Section..?

Re: A Non-Anonymous Section..?

Well I just like the GetAgrippa moniker-it just cracks me up. But when I post a video from Youtube-it's me. No I'm not the Coast to Coast Am dude-different spelling. I've had a million people ask me...

Re: Weird perceptions

Re: What is this shell material?

Brass isn't magnetic, but stainless can be depends-there are four kinds-three are magnetic and one isn't. Has to do with it's crystalline structure.

Re: Saturn V Tour or SJC?

I remember just a year or two ago Mapex maple Meridians, and earlier model Saturns were going dirt cheap on Amazon (I think????). Seems like this is some Mapex marketing strategy to clear out old...

Re: Taking charge of your posters

Gosh technology-what use to take me days or weeks in a dark room, physically drawing, and producing you can do in seconds. Use to have to make graphs with those damnable plotters-you spent more time...

Re: Weezer plays Rosanna..

I like jam bands doing covers-some are really great. Maybe not this one. Tough crowd-reminds me of grad school we had a journal club. Faculty and grad students attended and each week we'd take turns...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

We have "evolved" altruism and cooperation-though even that is because of a benefit/reward. War, disease, and famine have always regulated human populations so we've always been hostage to that...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Not trying to rain on your parade but Peak is a "book" by Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool. It's a book-which often cherry picks science to fit their "opinion"-much like Richard Dawkins books. They...

Re: 12" or 14"

I remember standard kits were 12,13 and 16 in the 60s-replacing two 12's as I recollect. I've always loved a 13-it has a huge range and nice tone. My old kit was 10, 12, and 16 and I later added a...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Well "many" scientist would say it isn't "talent" but just genetics. Some believe in determinism with no free will-we are just bags of genes programed in all aspects and behaviors. I find their...

Re: Forum Views Drum Gear vs. Forum Views Drum Technique..

It's all good-I like looking at gear and drums (but generally it's like being married where you still look but just don't touch), and I like learning new things, TBH I've never been one to be hung up...

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

Drum makers should offer drum badge options (they all got them) or a badge designer app-so you pick and put the ones you choose on and can change them if you like. That would be sweet-gimmicky but...
