Re: Who uses Moongel?

Lot's of Pros use it or other damping techniques as just another tool in the box to dial in the sound they're after. Used sparingly, I find it can help focus the sound a bit. Cut into small strips.....

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

When I saw the trailer I wasn't sure if it was a comedy or a drama.. as the teacher was so over the top it looked like a spoof of all those sports movies where someone rises from the ashes to conquer...

Re: Singing and playing?

I'm just a background singer, but I continually practice singing techniques to improve... finding the perfect pitch and tone, knowing when to jump to the O-voice, breathing, head, chest, gut voice.....

Re: Country drummers!

Agreed - nothing shallow at all! I'm constantly on the lookout for great modern country tunes that have lyrics that aren't about trucks and dixie cups. Maybe that's why Miranda Lambert cleans up at...

Re: Steve Jordan .... yeah ... watch it !

AT one point I studied all of Steve Jordans grooves and licks.. a great way to 'up your game' as he is chock full of tasty fills and funky riffs - whatever the genre.
Here's the Letterman...

Re: Worst song ever

Re: Snare size for ghost notes

I've used various sized snares, and never really thought about which is better for ghost notes.. Its more the different snare types (wood, metal, fiberglass) and shell size can produce different...

Re: 420 musicians onstage

I second the '420 drummer with a click' but would also add charts so they don't forget cues or get distracted. In short, drumming and that stuff is a disaster.

I also find that other players that...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?
