Everyone just do yourself a favor and spend a hundred bucks, give or take, for some custom molded earplugs. They don't muffle the sound like those foam earplugs do, they just bring the volume down. ...

Re: Reverbnation myband camp etc

Nailed it.

Definitely get a BandCamp page and facebook page.

Take or leave SoundCloud.

Don't bother with ReverbNation.

Re: Playing along to music

I think when you say preamp, you really mean audio interface.

You can't just plug a microphone into your Mac. It won't work. (Unless of course it has an audio interface built in, like the Zoom...

Re: Cool Metronome Trick

I do like to keep a real metronome (or two!) hanging around, but you're right, it's terribly convenient to have one on your phone.

Re: Systematic approach to advanced independence?

There are some great drummers out there who can't read music, but for the most part I'm going to have to agree with Todd and Brent.

I suppose you could develop your own system wherein you just...

Re: Playing along to music

That will work great.

It doesn't even have to be a drum specific mic. If you're on a real budget one SM-57 or 58 properly placed will sound absolutely fine.

Re: Cheap vs expensive kits

A cheap kit can be made to sound good, but there is most certainly a difference in sound, durability and aesthetics.

Re: Drum Set Educaition

Some good advice here already. As John W said, most professors will be happy to take a few moments to speak with you. Chat to them and find out what they are looking for in a prospective student. ...

Re: Possibitly of marching WGI with little marching drill exp?

Your hands will be the most important thing. If you can play, you'll be fine. They'll teach drill basics if you earn a spot in the group.

I never marched indoor, but I did DCI for a few years...

Re: What Books or DVD's do you consider to be "Bibles" of drumming?

A lot of the books mentioned here are obvious must-haves, but I don't think there will ever be one singular drum bible. Rather, I would venture to say that many of the books mentioned on this...

Re: I need some jazz enthusiasts help

They're a popular choice at the moment. A lot of schools buy them, and people get them as entry level kits. I've seen a lot of pros use them as their work horse kit as well. Personally, I'm kind...

Tony's advice is excellent.

Another thing I would recommend, (which isn't necessarily your ride per se, but will make everything feel a lot nicer) is to open up your hi-hat a lot more. It also...

12/8 Kiko Freitas groove

Check out this groove by Kiko Freitas. It based on a Candoblé pattern called Vassi, which most of us know as Bembé. He's built a really cool arrangement around it.

Re: Friends,Please Guide me

It depends on what your goals are. If taking the exam is something you want to do, then absolutely go for it. But if you are asking what we think of exams, then I would say no, do not take it.
