Re: Has anybody learned "Bleed" by Meshuggah?

I pretty much learned it for that competition when the song was first released but I left it late to record and had probs setting up protools. I remember the best entrant played it perfect but some...

Re: Tama Starclassics!

Play one kick and use the other as a fish tank. Or maybe a toy box.

Problem solved.

Re: Mapex Armoury

Another Saturn player here.. Awesome drums and beautiful too. Only thing is they're heavy to carry and pretty loud if you are mindful of upsetting neighbours.

Why do you favour the older...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Books are boring, I get that. I've been playing for ages and it's only now I'm getting into reading because I've already got my fingers in the other pies. Books are actually great, that's where you...

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

I think the shells are from china but that's not a bad thing. They will sound good. I'm asking you if you really want a 10+ year old kit with gear you won't use for $2000. There are heaps of great...

Re: Neurotic

You need time to get familiar, maybe you're not spending enough time with each setup and you're frustrated that nothing feels like home.

Re: EGO's

Sometimes the small ego's create problems too.

The most problematic band member I've encountered was a bass player who couldn't play that great, hit wrong notes, forgot parts, wouldn't practice...

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

Can't tell you how many times I've watched 'in the pocket' (probably hundreds of times) but I love Dennis and he's one of the best out there.

Get well soon Dennis.

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

It's the other way around.. The birch/maple combo shells were made in Germany, then later were made in china. They improved the hardware in the 2nd series. The pedals that came with my series 1 kit...

Re: No Drums For 2-3 Weeks :(

That sucks, real sorry to hear.

I think I'd still practice, just not using that hand.. You might learn new things.

Re: Have i lost it?

I do a lot of practice at home normally but I'm travelling around the US right now, just mucking around on the pad everyday in my hotel to try and maintain things. It is a bit soul sucking and I...

Re: Do you think it's time for your favorite drummer to retire?

I can't think of one but I wouldn't feel nice naming them.

Everyone would reach a stage where their skills start going downhill. Who can tell them to stop playing? Only some anonymous jerk on a...

Re: Cutting down drums

Because I'm a pillow man I don't think I benefit as much sonically but this will probably fit in my coupe and it's lighter an easy to carry through doors (I can hold it with 2-3 fingers). If I port...

Re: Cutting down drums

A happy ending. 20x13 stage custom (took 4 inches off from the batter side). The tom mount won't go through the hole anymore, need to address that (maybe take it back or just file it down a bit) but...

Re: Considering a new kit

Sakae (Japanese drum factory) gave Yamaha the boot so Yamaha went 100% china.

Those rock sizes are not so common, it's mostly fusion sizes these days.

Sonor s-classix? Mapex Orion? Yamaha...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist

It's not the standard in my experience. Actually I think a coffee can be more awkward than a jam, because at least if the conversation dries up, you can start playing, and it should primarily be...

Re: Feel the groove baby

I rambled a bit and forgot to ask the right question:

How do you work on feel? What elements do you think Benny will cover?

Re: Trimmed down kits

Not everyone's a sucker for trends. Many of us copy a setup initially but after that stage we get to know our preferences and refine our kits.

Re: 10.000 hours of practice is not the magic number

Running for the sake of running just seems so pointless to me. Why not play a game of tip or give athletic looking strangers a wedgie, then see if you can outrun them?

Seriously though, I don't...
