Re: Neck pain from looking at music stand

You might investigate the Manhasset #53 that Al P. has on his last link above, which I've used for the last several years. I positioned the music stand in front left (I'm a lefty setup) by attaching...

Re: David Garibaldi Soul Train Appearance

How's he doing since the train accident around a year ago?
I assume he's back up full speed now, hopefully?

I think the bass player was more injured, hopefully he's also OK.

Anyone know?

Re: Moving on

Approach cautiously like you're speaking to a Great White shark- calmly and naturally but don't inflame. As you've acknowledged don't burn bridges.
Rehearse a few lines just in case...

Re: I'm feeling "shocks" on my left wrist after playing for a bit. Should I be worried?

Maybe consider a lighter stick?

I found that trying to practice on the pads with a larger than 5B stick model (under the premise that some additional weight might help train the muscles better)...

Re: Do guitarists generally dislike rests on drums?

In my blues band, our lead guitarist/vocalist insisted that I play quarter notes on the hi hats w/sticks during each rest of silence, to keep the whole group together until the music restarts...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

Never do, never will.

Need my full capabilities intact. Alcohol numbs them, to whatever degree.

Re: Passing On Experience

When gigging, always bring your own rug. Even if others say the stage has carpet. Worst case, you can outline your drum set boundaries on top of the carpet on the stage.

I recently showed up for...

Re: Ginormous double bass drums!!

It would be interesting to hear back how you thought the 28 sounds in that band--a bit too much, good primarily as a prop, or good as an instrument with the music?

Since you're usually able to...

Re: Stones backline

The batter head of Charlie's snare is quite worn looking-- perhaps he favors a used head and doesn't feel it's necessary to change heads each show (some other well known touring drummers have said...

I can echo this experience. I watched some videos of guys playing with heavier sticks and saying this helped develop speed, and bought some VF Corpsmaster sticks to practice with. Although they...

I print out many of your PDFs and use them in practice, always helpful.

Re: Jabo Starks RIP

Loved Jabo, both as a funky drummer and also as a guy with deep integrity that he expressed in every interview I watched.

Just the plain and simple explanations for what he did, no fanfare.
