Re: Rockstar Dream come true, sort of

Very cool!! I saw my first arena concerts at the Spectrum. I shared your dream of wanting to play there, lol!

The closest I've come is playing between periods at a hockey game. Like you said, full...

Re: Am I a charlot all the way around?

It's not the equipment, it's the player.

Re: Another "Back in the Saddle" thread

Thanks! Rehearsal was good. Kicked the rust off pretty quickly.

The bass player (who I had never met) commented several times how easy I was to play with, so I take that as a good compliment. At...

Re: Another "Back in the Saddle" thread

Haha, sure thing. :)

I'll ask everyone to wish me luck - in return I'll try to supply a pic or two and probably a goofy tale.

Deal?

Another "Back in the Saddle" thread

Well, I got coaxed out of "retirement," lol.

I got a call from a guitarist I once worked with, asking me to do a one-weekend gig at a casino. Good pay, good players, so I said yes.

It's been a...

Re: Painting a bass drum reso head?

Acrylic will work on a coated head, as will watercolors.

The attached pic is one done in watercolor.

Re: Favourite hoops and why?

Hula. They're fun, good exercise, and sexy when the right ladies use them! lol

Oh, DRUM hoops. Just your standard 1.6 - 2.3mm triple-flanged for me, thank you. I would also like to try 3 mm, but I...

Re: I'm a jaded music industry guy

This is how I remember drum corp - silver dot or black dot snare heads. They seem plenty crisp to me. :)

Re: Getting lazy and playing heel down

I'm not much of a black-and-white guy, so it's no surprise that I've always used both heel up and heel down. I go with whatever feels and works right at the moment. No need to overthink it.

Re: Photo Essay: Ludwig Mfg Center in NC

Very cool! It was a bit interesting to see people sanding with no respirator, but the man hammering the tympani had on full protective gear. Curious.

Nice to see the folks that built my Classic...

Re: How to play while you are totally tired and exhausted

I don't have a solution, other than napping. But I feel your pain. It's one of the reasons I gig much less now that I'm older, and often have to be up really early for work. Heck, I can't even sleep...

Re: Talking to the doctors now....

As I've gotten older I've found the body just needs more preventative maintenance. Do you exercise? Lift weights? Do cardio? How is your diet? I need to do those things and watch what I eat just to...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

Do I play better when drinking? No. Am I able to play at an acceptable level when drinking? Yes. I have heard the recordings that prove it.

I understand the people who choose not to drink when...

Re: Was I sold a bad snare?

You got a killer deal. It sounds fine! They probably just had it marked down because of the damaged strainer.

Re: When disaster strikes: Your opinion

I have no pets. I have no immediate family in the area. I don't have any key documents, lol. I'd throw some clothes in a bag, take some grub, and beat feet.

BTW, Al, we're already seeing smoke...

Re: Acrylic snare? Any good?

It's purely subjective, of course, but I really liked the 6.5X14 acrylic snare I played. It was loud, bright, full-sounding and very much unlike any of the wood or metal snares I've tried. If I found...

Re: Snare rim-click help

In addition to what Opentune said, make sure the shoulder of the stick isn't contacting the head before the stick hits the rim. In the attached pic, see how the shoulder lays against the head instead...

Vinnie would be a goner, mostly because I like more of the music Gadd has played on.

Re: 18" bass drum for rock!

I use my Tama kit with 18 bass drum when I host open jams, which are typically rock/country/blues affairs. I also use it for the occasional gig. I, and other musicians I play with, have been...
