Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

The film is not really about drumming at all. Most drummers would see the mistakes in the editing, as well as technique issues and all. Jazz lovers might not be very impressed because the movie...

Re: Increasing drum hand speed/chops

Some of the fastest drummers have never had a lesson. Some of the most educated drummers are not the fastest. While speed comes with practice, it is also a matter of genetics - type A or type A and B...

Re: Who does this, really?

Based on the number of drum sets I have seen and some nursed back to health, I'd say a lot of drummers carry things around without protection of any kind.

In some genres violence and abuse is...

Re: groove vs chops?

It seems to be the overall belief you can have technique (chops) yet not be able to groove but, you definitely can groove without the chops - all depending on definitions of the terms.

Re: Ginger Bakers Latest

Watching Baker always reminds me of his own philosophy - Some play faster, some play with greater technique but, no one plays like him.

It's true. He has always had his own voice behind the...

Re: Amazing Street Drummer in France

Compared to many other street drummers/bucket drummers I've seen, he had quite an array of toys in there. Kind of a STOMP-thing happening. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the video, too.

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

I guess the greatest compliment you can give to something like this is that it ended too soon; wanted to see and hear more. Very enjoyable on various levels.

Re: Gary Husband new YouTube channel

Re: Danny Seraphine

Funny, I tended to find Mitch Mitchell's style distracting with Hendrix, while Seraphine seemed to fit perfectly in his genre. Forty-five years ago and I can still hear his patterns, fills and segues...

Re: What would you consider "true innovations"

Drum racks.

Some of the old jazzers had racks but, the rack as we see it today was a hardware innovation. Took me a long time to succumb but, I have to admit it took away a lot of frustration...

Re: Is this beyond repair?

Just curious. How does the drum sound? Okay?

The picture makes it look like a floor tom, but I don't see any leg brackets so I assume it's a deep tom.

If someone sat on it or stood on it while...

Re: Has anyone or famous drummers recorded with these crap drums?

Argent drums.

Like stated above, anything can be made to sound good with today's recording equipment.

In the case of the drums I used, I eventually took them home and renovated them. Black...

Re: 4 piece vs 5 piece kits

Are you speaking of a five pc. by adding another mounted tom, or floor? It really depends on your own style and the music you accompany.

I don't know as it is an 'advantage' but, for me, the...

Re: Musicality

So, if I am exposed to music I do not particularly care for, I will not be able to tell if the drummer has any musicality to his playing?

Not sure that works for me.

Re: The big debate: tribute bands - yay or nay!?

I understand tribute bands to exist because the musicians like the music, and people miss the live performance of the music, perhaps because today's music is not filling the gap?
