Re: Time away from kit

Maybe you could think about picking up a bass-drum pratice pad, too, so you could work on your foot technique at the same time.

Re: Gear Sell Off, Best Way To Go About It

Man, I missed out on some Giant Beats. Wish I'd seen this thread earlier.

Re: What is Your Geek Out Drum Thing?

The FireGrains have also become my favourite sticks. The other plus point with them is they really stand out in the stick bag so there's no hunting around for matching sticks in rehearsals or at...

Re: What is Your Geek Out Drum Thing?

I only use Pro-Mark sticks. No sponsorship or anything, but they just feel right in my hands. They do those Forward or Rebound Balance sticks that are weighted to the tip or to the butt of the stick.

Re: “To All The Drum Teachers I Had Before”

Whoah! But this guy who argued with his wife, I can't recall a single thing I took from those lessons. I wouldn't be offended by bad language if I was learning and improving.

I attended a weekly...

Re: “To All The Drum Teachers I Had Before”

Steve White
Gary Wallis
Charles Hayward

And another guy, who I won't name, but who used to have the most foul-mouthed, blasphemous arguments with his wife in front of me. She took me aside...

Re: The magic of a simple kit

I use the one-up one-down set-up a lot but I still get overly worried when I'm moving round the kit that I'm not going to make the floor tom from the rack tom, they just seem so far away? I tend to...

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

I've played on some backline kits that should've been taken out back and shot. But I always bring breakables, so as long as I can get the bass drum sounding acceptable, I just get on with it.

Re: List you favorite drumming album.

Dang. Dennis Chambers. Good call, J Man. Also, check out Chambers on Maceo Parker's Shake Everything You Got from Maceo's Roots & Grooves album. There's an immense drum break-down on that track.

Re: List you favorite drumming album.

And Fagen and Becker were fussy about their drummers. I saw a documentary about the making of Aja which spent a lot of time on the recording of the song Peg. I seem to remember Jim Keltner going...

Re: List you favorite drumming album.

Soul Drums by Bernard Purdie and Live Mix Pt 2 by Breakestra, with Josh Cohen on drums replicating classic hip-hop drum samples. That's if you want the soul/funk groove side of things.

Re: A re-statement of the obvious

This place is cool and so friendly and helpful. A case in point, I was having difficulty playing 16th notes on the hi-hat at a certain tempo on a certain song, and another poster devised a practice...

Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

I know a guy via twitter who had lessons with Purdie and was told his bass-drum playing was too loud, and he's not a loud player. In fact, he worries that he plays too quietly.

Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

I play both, with no problems, although heel-up mostly. If we're doing a 12/8 soul ballad, where the bass drum should not overpower the song, it'll be heel-down. If it's a funk tune, it'll be...

Re: Under Rated or Fairly Unknown Drummers

Absolutely. Very difficult to play like Stevie. Innervisions has some great drumming, and all by Stevie.

Re: struggling to get through a song

Don't want to concern the OP even more, but isn't there a little floor tom motif in the chorus that goes with the lines, 'If I go there will be trouble/and if I stay it will be double'? Dunno if...

Re: New Mapex Mars Kit

I had to use a Mapex Mars backline kit for a gig on Saturday with two rack toms but only one mounted. It was a nice enough kit but for the life of me I couldn't work out how to mount the other tom...

I'm not a fan of Queen by a long shot, but my daughter wanted to see it and I thought it was excellent.

Re: How to organise a music collective

I'm not sure you had to audition to join the musician's union. From various books I've read, many times it was a case of, 'If you want to play on this session, you need to join the union.'

Re: Funny the things that matter

The thing I get stupidly bugged about is crooked logos. If I've put a new head on whatever drum, and the Remo logo is not absolutely perfectly centered, I'll take if back off and start again.

Re: Covers that don't work with the original drum part...

That's just the sort of inspiring information I needed. My practice regime sorted! Thank you very much.
