Re: Advice needed from gigging/signed musicians.

I appreciate this but without the bands they have no festival. And it's not about being paid, i'm not worried about being paid and i would do it for free, but it's the fact that we play, then we get...

Advice needed from gigging/signed musicians.

I'm in a band that's starting to receive some decent play on radio and whatnot, but we're still unsigned.

Anyway, we've been asked to play a festival by one of the people organising it. There is...

Re: A vote for the 'untrained' musician ?

This is exactly why i think the guy is a joke.

I can't play drums. Big deal. No reason to bring that into it, the only reason he did is because he has no argument against me apart from the...

Re: A vote for the 'untrained' musician ?

I'm not sure what part of being poor you didn't understand, but apple mac's and DAW programs, not to mention recording equipment, cost an awful lot of money that i don't have. I tried to get my hands...

Re: Professional Drummers Alert - The bar has been set

I've been playing 2 months, and my time keeping, fills, beats and general use of dynamics are better than his.

There's no way he can be a professional.

Re: Do you still use eBay to sell your gear?

I sold off a lot of my gear to raise money for a deposit on my new house.

Because i sold over 1900 of stuff they're holding money in my account until i prove it is actually me. I have a double...

Re: A vote for the 'untrained' musician ?

I notice you didn't contend my serious post. Do you have nothing to say on the opportunity debate?

And i have no gimmick. You're one to talk about arrogance - you seem most comfortable talking...

Maybe i've missed something, but it looks like you're either contradicting yourself, or you are the authority on creativity.

By the way, how long did it take you to write your own Wikipedia...

Re: A vote for the 'untrained' musician ?

I did actually say that the hours of hard graft were all your own, but to say that noone's advantaged in the opportunity stakes is just wrong. Maybe if you'd seen it from the poor side of the coin...

Re: A vote for the 'untrained' musician ?

I think 'Outliers' by Malcolm Gladwell is material pertinent to some of the earlier comments about people being schooled getting the work. I disagree. I think a lot of the time it's about...

Re: Recording practice.

Hm the only thing i think controlled speed is important for is that it will make slower playing easier and more comfortable.

I will definitely be carrying on with my single stroke practice though...

Re: Recording practice.

I do respect it. But my yardstick for saying it comes naturally is seeing people elsewhere who've been playing rudiments for years complaining that they can't get past 175bpm in 16th notes. If that's...

Re: Recording practice.

Ah right, thanks a lot :)

I do practice closed usually but for an exam that i'm planning on taking i have to learn the single stroke four open so i'm practising it that way for now.

And yeah...

Re: Recording practice.

Thanks a lot. When you say too fast do you mean i lost control at the end because i went too quickly?

Re: Recording practice.

I'm so ridiculously poor it's untrue, i was after an iMac but my credit rating is so bad they won't let me have one on finance haha.

Recording practice.

I've just recorded myself (via a really poor built in webcam) playing a few rudiments.

Even though i thought my rudiments were pretty even and solid it turns out they still need a bit of work in...

I agree with whoever said that you should play at a variety of tempos. Playing faster than you can forces your body to experience what it might be like to go fast, even though it might be sloppy....

Re: Pain where legs meet hips during double pedaling

After some extensive messing about with my bass drum gear and stool i figured out throne height is actually a big factor. I only use single pedal and my leg used to hurt until i put the throne at a...

Re: Worst bass drum sound ever?

There's a difference between disagreeing and then telling me i can't have an opinion on it. I simply tried to get opinions on the bass drum sound, and i have someone having a go at my choice of words...

Re: Worst bass drum sound ever?

In what respect?

I simply put up a video and said i think the bass sound is awful, what other sounds do people find awful.

Yet i get someone jumping all over me telling me i can't possibly...

Re: Worst bass drum sound ever?

I am being subjective. You notice how i didn't say 'nobody can find a worse sound than this'? It is my opinion that it is the worst i've ever heard.

And i probably listen to 10x more music than...

Re: Worst bass drum sound ever?

Hahaha.

The bridge/chorus. Not from a drumming perspective though, just from a singing/guitar perspective. The drumming is technical but i find it extremely boring.

Re: Worst bass drum sound ever?

It's just the plasticness that i can't deal with. I think if you're going to trigger your kick drum you should try and make it sound as bass-drum-like as possible.
