Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

For me personally, it is never about how beautiful my drums look. I love to stare at the whole set up: the drums the cymbals, the hardware, the whole vibe. If I had scratched up drums, patina-laden...

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

Larry, yes, I do lovingly stare at my bass rig (two basses hanging on the wall with my amp underneath) as well as my guitar rig (similar to the bass area of my music room). My keyboard setup or the...

Re: Just curious -----------

I am one of the entrants and it was easy to submit it. I am a self-taught hack with absolutely no chops, and usually not a lot of confidence in my playing, so if I dared to do it, most people on...

Re: Hiromi trio gig report. Simon Phillips, Anthony Jackson

I have just watched the whole thing and it is amazing. What impressed me is how loose and spontaneous they are at some parts and then razor sharp/tight when required. As you pointed out, dynamic...

Re: Hiromi trio gig report. Simon Phillips, Anthony Jackson

I am glad to find out I am not the only one who gets a bit emotional during live shows (or sometimes even listening to recordings) when musical magic happens.

Great review and photos to help us...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

Boss #1 after she found out I played drums in a rock band: " Wow, do you have tattoos and stuff?"

Boss #2: "You look more like a bass player." Excellent observation since my original instrument...

Re: Do You Play Another Instrument Besides Drums?

No need to apologize, good topic. I am not aware of a specific thread on this. A lot of us had occasions to bring up the fact that we play other instruments while responding to different topics. I

Re: Do You Play Another Instrument Besides Drums?

I mentioned it in many threads, but my original instrument is bass guitar. I have played it since I was 16 (I am 50 now). In my college days and for a while afterwards, I played it professionally...

Re: Who do you select for a Studio Drum Coach?

For a coach, I probably would go with someone with teaching experience as well as studio chops.

As far as your band using a different drummer in the studio, I have experienced it. I play for a...

Re: Dampening with paper

I started using a letter size piece of paper on my snare after somebody suggested it here a couple of years ago. I do it during rehearsals to cut the volume down, but it also changes the tone and...

Re: Great Results With 18" Bass Drum

Cool, I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your bop kit. I agree with your description of what 18" bass drums can do. I started out on a cheap Tama Stagestar kit and that 18" BD could be pretty...

Re: ...and it changed my life

I consider the first time I listened to Deep Purple's Machine Head album a musical turning point for me. It was in the mid 70's and I was in my early teens. Until that point, I would listen to...

Re: # of gigs in 2013?

I played 19 gigs in 2013 which is about half of what I played in each of previous three years. It was a real slow year. I made about $1000 (average $50 per gig).

Re: The virtues of gigging - or otherwise

Grea, I never got the impression that you were nervous or uncomfortable in any way in any of your live performance videos I have watched. You come across just the opposite - like a seasoned...

Re: Vintage Kit Taboos

I understand where you are coming from. It is sentimentality and respect to past that make us want to keep vintage things true to their original form. If you wanted these drums as a collector or a...

Re: Which Bassist would you hire?

Shemp, I can't believe you brought up Trevor Bolder! As a young bass player, he was my biggest influence. I still try to emulate his style. Also, his Fender Jazz bass bridge pickup dominant tone...

Re: How do you start your show?

Re: The Drum Solo

I am on the same camp with the ones who don't like drum solos - playing or hearing/watching. After listening to Moby Dick and The Mule for about the 18 millionth time, I got really sick of solos. ...

Re: The tip jar

Like others said, it depends on the venue and situation. My bands put up a tip jar more often than not. One time, the owner of the venue brought out a jar for us because he was used to seeing bands...

Re: Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor

Philty grooved like no other metal drummer. Some great hihat barks, too. I still enjoy listening to the first 6 Motorhead albums mainly for his drumming. The song Iron Horse always has been one of...

Re: Small room Advice: 6.5 x 14 Black Beauty or 5x14 Supra?

One thing to consider: While it is true that the 6.5" BB is louder at the peak volume level, it can provide more dynamic range and probably sound better when played softer. When I have a low volume...

Re: Fastest Drummer's remorse has ever set in?

My biggest buyer's remorse was a pair of 14" Giant Beat hihats. I did not have a way to check them out in person, but from all the samples I heard, I was convinced that they were the end all be all...
