Re: Played my first Gig last night.

Yes guy! That's some motivation, and a hell of an ego boost... I wish more musicians were as positive as him... Everyone needs that kind of reinforcement and encouragement after a gig or practice...

Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

I mentioned this a few replies ago, but I finally sat down with a local tattoo artist and after a nearly 6 hour session, got it done... I'm not sure if it makes me "cooler" or not, but I definitely...

Re: Cajon players - rock back or hunch over?

My cajons have the standard little rubber feet, and I always rock it back until I'm nearly at the tipping point... Then, I really make sure that my chest is kinda puffed out, my back has got a nice...

Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

I've always felt the same way Doc. I've been studying martial arts since I was a kid, and the one constant has always been efficiency of movement, which is something I guess I transfer to my playing...

Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

Agreed. The drummer (usually) is in the middle of the stage, and even tho they're (usually) at the back, they're always a center-piece of the band, so get a lot of attention... I'm always aware of...

Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

So I've started a new rock band project with a group of other expats over here in Taiwan, and we're really getting started... We're jamming once or twice a week, and we've started laying down some...

Re: Cajon fatigue?

Interesting technique. I've always felt that when I'm playing the cajon, the audience is staring at my (for lack of a better term) gentleman's sausage.... Depending on the audience,this is sometimes...

+1 to this.

That urban myth about freezing sandals/shoes to kill the bacteria is tired and old and doesn't work.

Spray lightly with an alcohol solution, let the alcohol evaporate (takes only...

Re: What was the name of your first bands?

My first band: Scavenger District.

It was actually kinda fun, we had a big yellow diamond road sign that had the silhouette of a turkey vulture sitting on a dead tree. And my bass drum had...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

I tried both the Sledgehammer (hammered brass) and the Machete (steel) at my local shop here in Taiwan. The Sledgehammer was a beast, and sounded amazing. I was really close to buying it, and I...

Re: Mapex Hammered Phosphor Bronze Snare?

Thanks Dre, I sent him a PM....

Yeah, there's no commitment at all. I just really want to get a brass snare, and this seems like a good deal. Plus, I've seen him use this snare at a couple of...

Mapex Hammered Phosphor Bronze Snare?

I've been looking at brass snares for a while now, as it would (sorta) complete my arsenal of snares. I've got a maple/walnut, birch, steel, and aluminum, and I really want that brass sound now.......

Re: Mapex USA Maples

That's great to hear.

I couldn't agree with you more about the quality and performance of Mapex drums. They are hugely underrated drums, with exceptional quality... I've had the BP Blaster kit...

Re: Whats the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

Nearly the exact same thing happened to me about a year and 1/2 ago... We were a few song into a gig at a bar, and a local university act had opened for us.. The other drummer and I were sharing...
