Re: Ain't no more fun...

Orange is a happy place in a sunny part of America, right down the road from where they make those expensive drums.

At least we're in good company, and thank god bankers and lawyers aren't listed,...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Who knows what's what with these studio snippets.

The isolated drum track (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77H2sFdF7pM&t=2m8s) has a different ending than all the rest, is it the final? Who knows,...

Re: worth it?

Speaking of sticks... how many drummers notice the difference while casually listening/playing their hickory, maple and oak drumsticks?

If you're playing maple drumsticks live, how many people in...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

If thats the case we'd have to interpret what's labeled as 'take 6 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cvd6yNMm4c0)' to be a seasoned pro at latin beats trying to come up with something new, something...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

We can all 'think' something, guess at what we're hearing, but I highly doubt it took 7 takes for them to realize Ringo's bumbling attempts were not working in the groove dept on IFF.

Re: New Gretsch 3 ply Broadkaster line

You're getting too technical for industrial scale drum building. Poplar is often called gum wood, 'poplar' just sounds more elevated.

Would you rather have drums made with poplar, or gum wood? ...

Re: Identify this Ludwig kit

Offer them $150

The lugs are way dirty (so much so they look painted) and the snare drum is missing its muffler, replacement BD hoop, and what ever else that's going on we don't see in those pics.

Sure you can.




You may think you were not influenced by Xenu (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DwfxuQtgGE0), but plenty of people feel they are.

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

You should be happy no ones accusing you of being biased for dropping thousands on a GURU kit.





Hey now, don't put the burden on us.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

So true, and 'jazz' would include latin beats, which if you're experienced with them you'd easily be able to tell the drummer who played on the 65' studio example has a level of proficiency beyond a...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

Sounds like the GURU is suffering from poor (or at least not the same) mic placement.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Not buy a double bass, but per the ' I Feel Fine' studio example above, nowhere live does Ringo play a mambo type groove with that adeptness post 1965, he never shows chops like that again is my...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

Beats sitting at home watching TV. If you play drums, if this is what you do, or your main hobby, driving an hr or two is part of it.

I agree driving is the biggest waste of time I know of, but...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Also the snare remains in cross stick mode throughout this studio cut, not saying Ringo the rock drummer couldn't do this, but its not of a/the rock drummer mindset, and more difficult to pull off,...

Negligible

Some will say wrapped is darker, but blindfolded 999 out of 1000 people won't hear a difference.

Go for the finish you like best, you can alter a drums sound, harder to alter the...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Cop out, drop out, or just not into it?

If you're a drummer, you play. If you're a drummer, you want to play, that's what you do.

Ringo would be the first example of a famous drummer playing...
