Re: What technique changed your drumming dramatically?

Finding a good teacher, learning doubles, Moeller, fixing my grip. It is all a work in progress undoing the years of badness.

Re: Bass Pedal Technique Help: Heel-Up

Yep I like this one. There is nothing wrong with burying the beater IMO. I do have the Ritter video and I understand it, but to be honest I went back to how I used to play (like in the video...

Re: Re-training My foot? My pedal? Both?

I've also experienced this phenomenon of playing on another kit and the kick feeling much better or worse to the point it affects the groove and my entire comfort. For me I worked out that a...

Re: Practice Pads

Another +1 for the RealFeel HQ 12". They fit nicely on a snare stand too if you have a spare.

Re: Child wants a career in music

Yes, although I would have liked to have played music for a living, I definitely would NOT want to be famous!

Re: Child wants a career in music

If I could go back and do it all again, I would try and make music my career, whether being a session musician playing drums or playing something else in a professional orchestra. As it is, music is...

Re: Soundguys and drummers

Moo. Moo moo moo. Moo. Moo moo. You've broke me.

That's a lot of cymbals. Can I have some please?

Re: How often do you break/drop your sticks?

Drop, hardly ever. If I do its usually because I catch it on the rim of another drum when going for a fill.

Break, in the earlier days I sometimes did. I tend to use drumsticks for a very very...

Re: Soundguys and drummers

There are different approaches. At times I've used small diaphragm condenser overheads, rolled a fair bit off low mid and bottom end, and put it through a stereo reverb (my PA was stereo), but no...

Re: best types of drummers and who are the best

Unfortunately Pop Idol and X-Factor are teaching the youth of today that it is, and not even a musical skill competition at that; more a popularity contest. I'm forced to watch it occasionally when...

Re: Soundguys and drummers

I used to be a sound guy with my own rig and all that, so I've got both perspectives.

To be fair, most drummers just let me do what I thought was best for the occasion, and each setup would often...

Re: Song that gets you out of a funk

Hard to Handle by The Black Crowes is always a good one for me if I'm not feeling it.

And Since Andy mentioned a classical piece I feel I can do the same :p For an emotional pick me up and...

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

I wouldn't mind a peek too. I used to do web design for a living - or at least I used to implement them; graphic design never was my strong point so we had an artist do that. I just do business...

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

I think the point you are missing is that it is not gratuitous information; it is the human aspect of this argument. This is not a formal place built on rules. It is a discussion forum based around...

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

This is what I was saying above. I feel the gray area is for our discretion as a community. We can tell when someone is here just to peddle their products, and when they are not. If enough of us...

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

Shemp. You certainly had an opinion and certainly used your right to express it, but if you don't mind me saying so: there are informed opinions and ill informed opinions. Your ill informed opinion...

Re: Has tradition been holding drummers back for 100+ years?

I feel there is a lot holding my drumming back, but playing "crossed over" isn't one of them! Or is way way way down the list.

You mentioned the Journey record "Don't stop believing". For that...

Re: how much should i sell my cymbals for?

Yes checking eBay is a good idea. Check the "sold items" option so you can see roughly what items are currently worth. It's worth as much as someone is willing to pay really..

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

Currently hobbyist. I was in a band that got paid for gigs a while back and toured a bit, so maybe at that point I was semi-pro?
I'm hoping to be semi-pro again at some point.
If I could do it all...

Re: I Seem To Be Getting Away With Playing Drums In My Apartment

I think the best thing you can do is knock on the door and politely talk to them about it. If you wait and wait until one of the neighbours can't stand it anymore, the situation will be...

Re: Is the acoustic kit dying?

I'm surprised to hear this. Here in the UK I think I've perhaps seen an electronic kit used once or twice at a live venue but that's about it. It is very rare here.

I used to own a very high end...

Re: Drum beats - are they covered by copyright?

It would be a crazy world where you could copyright drum beats. For a start, its likely they've all already been done, possibly even by earliest man. Second, there is no way to know if someone has...

Re: What attracts you to music?

Another +1.
David Gilmour quote: I cant say that my greatest desire is to be innovative or break new frontiers. I just hope to make music that moves people a little bit and makes them think..
