Ahhh, nostalgia! I remember when the internet was mostly just trees.

Re: How do you know when to crash?

...and then there's how to crash.

There are songs which my band plays (classic rock stuff), where sometimes I will play a crash so that it lies beneath the surface of the music, rather than...

Re: How do you feel during your drum lessons?

When I took lessons, at a similar age to yours, FWIW, my teacher was in a studio literally 30 seconds walk from my work. The counter productive thing for me was that I would sit down at the kit with...

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

Not so much a mis-spelling, but I found an Ebay ad, tucked away in some backwater like "Music Equipment, Miscellaneous", that was full of mis-described items. I bought a home theatre receiver, a...

Re: In the studio

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Buy that man a beer!

So many people miss the difference between criticising something for being poor as opposed to something being part of a genre that they don't like, or don't "get".

Re: Can you be a good drummer with bad math skills?
