Re: Help Identify Sound from Beatles

Firebell huh? Well dang that sure sounds right. How did you come by that tidbit of knowledge? AND knowing that George played it too? I'm more than impressed by the confidence of your response.

Re: Band Leaders

I've been in both kinds. Both have pluses and minuses. Be sure everyone is clear on this issue from the beginning. In most "leader bands" this has not been hard to define. There have been one or at...

Re: Top-10-Iconic-Snare-Drum-Intros

A little surprised not to see Gadd's 50 ways intro. Not as surprised to see Legend of the One Eyed Sailor omitted.

Re: Snare selection

Ludwig Supraphonic. Without question the most recorded and played snare drum of the 70's. Lots of them around and will fit your budget.

Re: I need advice for (politely) demanding more money.

I may have ranted about this before,not sure. Do Not settle for sub-standard pay. It not only hurts you but will hurt every other musician in the area. The bar owner will use this low standard of pay...

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

Without question John Lennon was a huge shock. I was 27 when he was murdered and was back in the limelight with the new album, a recent featured interview (Playboy magazine if my memory is correct)...

Re: Questions: a roll as a fill

Not trying to nitpick but the examples you listed are really rolls incorporated into the groove pattern. Check out this example of Vinnie Colaiuta with a beautiful open roll fill at 3:06 in this clip...

Re: Modern Drummer Product Review Bias?

Another point to consider is: if a product is so bad that it deserved to get tanked by the reviewer would the magazine be criticized for wasting editorial space on a piece of junk? I agree that at...

Re: New kit! Sonor Signature

Absolutely fantastic drums. I had the pleasure to be able to record on some of those back in the late 80's and early 90's and loved the experience. Sonor had some very well defined concepts on what...

Re: Learning a new piece of drummers sheet music

I would suggest you get your hands on as much written music you can and familiarize yourself with the various signs that will lead you through the piece. If you have the opportunity to listen to the...

Re: Wedding/Function Band Do's and Don't's

For years I did this for a living. The main thing to remember is that you are in the "People Business". Be flexible and ALWAYS polite even if you have issues to deal with. Remember that the bride and...

Re: Temple block vs Wood block

Yes, big difference between temple block and wood block. Wood block is going to be higher pitched and in most cases give more of a click sound. Temple block is going to be lower pitched and more open...

Re: 13 or 14 rack with 16 floor?

I would be inclined to go with the 13" in that configuration.

Re: Learning to play shout sections

Certainly anyone who played with Basie had the ability to drive a shout chorus. Maybe because of my familiarity with the two but Sonny Payne and Harold Jones always knocked me out. Mel Lewis of...

Re: cry for help: Toms tone? How much sustain is good?

Trying to tune to a specific note may or may not work. Frankly I don't think that will necessarily get you where you want to be. Here is my suggestion. Since you are new to drums and drumming you...
