Re: So....how long should it take to learn....

I just came across my rough transcription of this intro from years ago when I was very briefly in a DL tribute band. Funny enough was that I transcribed it wrong. In the end I think the ESSENCE of...

Re: Cement residue on a stripped drum

Realizing as I'm taping up the bearing edges in preparation for Jasco that this is in fact exactly what I did last time and kicked myself for not doing it sooner then, as I am now.

Re: Cement residue on a stripped drum

Well, it hasn't really *seeped* into the wood, more that it just keeps getting moved around by my solvent or sander. I would love a way to crystallize the cement somehow. Wonder if alcohol might have...

Cement residue on a stripped drum

Hi All, so I feel like there was a thread that gave me the answer to this but I cant find it now.

Over a year ago, i test-removed the wrap from one of my Rogers toms and stained it. I am now...

Re: Does anyone transport just the drums in a trailer?

I used a trailer on a tour recently, where the band was in my minivan with their bags and the more delicate gear (guitars, amp heads), and everything else (speaker cabinets, drums, keyboards, merch,...

Re: The needless debate over drum construction and the misguided search for undo drum resonance

I dont think I've ever considered wood-types in my drum purchasing decisions. I've only worried about bearing edge on the couple of occasions where I had a drum that just could not sound decent to me...

Re: Different finish kick and toms

As promised, here's some pics of that first mismatched kit I put together for the east coast (where I am now). Just played 2 shows on it so far but I like it a lot. I put silver dot heads on the Toms...

Re: how to learn a jazz tune

If you are just getting started with jazz, I think your approach is actually very good. The only change I would make is in number 4: add comping according to the accents NOT in the melody. By this is...

Re: Ed. Thigpen.

Playing traditional grip with your wrist rotated outward too much is a quick road to tendonitis as well. We tend to angle the snare to compensate for the stick angle somewhat.

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

The BACKbeat is 2 and 4. Maybe that got turned around in your minds to the downbeat.

The beginning of a song has always been "the top" to me.

Upbeats have almost always meant the "and"s of the...

Re: Post your haul load Tetris pictures

Back in the old days i was a master at the odd shaped, soft cased jazz tour tetris-in-a-station-wagon. Drumset, up right bass, 3 dudes and their bags. Had an instinct for it and for still allowing to...

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

To me Downbeat means the start of actually playing music at a gig or session. "DB at 9:15pm" has been common terminology in my life.

I can see how it would refer to the first beat of a bar, but i...

Re: Perhaps it's time to get sensible?

Can you borrow a friend's 20" kick and use it for some shows? I personally love 20" kicks and consider them in a completely different sonic category from 18", but then again also somewhat different...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

I only see people playing 22" and bigger these days. Usually 24 or 26. But right now im in a stoner/psych/doom scene and everything is overly big and loud.

Personally, i prefer 20" kicks both...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

I find, unfortunately, that super clean living in general keeps me in the best mood, most energy and endurance, and keeps my mind the most open to artistic expression and general grooviness.

Re: Jimmy Cobb Brush Pattern

Nice stuff!

Jimmy Cobb is definitely one of the most underrated of that era of drummers. Not as flashy as Philly Joe but I was always blown away by his magical ability to make straight quarter...

Re: Drum Hack: Floor Tom Sustain

Re: Do guitarists generally dislike rests on drums?

Leaving the cymbals for toms usually gets OUT of the way for singers, unless its like Tom Waits or Leonard Cohen...

Its probably insecurity on the guitarists' parts, either about tempo or...
