Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

When I was younger I used to judge drummers all the time. I mean in the negative sense. But as I've gotten older I really do believe that to do that all the time is to show one's own insecurities. I...

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

Re: Difficult band members

I see a band situation differently though. In a work situation its not nearly as an intimate setting as a band. Expecially when touring because one is living with the band members. Im not saying you...

How to you construct your parts?

For quite a few years now I've written all of my drum parts out for every original song that I play. Every beat, every fill, everything written out down to the note. And although I do think this is a...

Re: Difficult band members

One of the hardest things for me to find are...

Re: Difficult band members

You know man, I really think your right. In just so burnt on the situation in the band at this point. The singer and guitar player really seem to want to make a change for the better. So I almost...

Re: Difficult band members

To be honest man I can't function like that. I have an opinion and feel it should be given the same about credibility as anyone else in the band. I cant just shut my mouth and play the drums

Re: Difficult band members

This sums up my bass player to a t. Only he is a really good player. But hes also a total pre madonna.

Like I said, he has been much better as of late. But it could be way to little at this point.

Re: Difficult band members

My biggest worry about cutting free from this band is how hard it may be to find other players that are truly serious and want to do music full time through recording and touring. It took me 3 years...

Re: Difficult band members

I will say that at times I really don't enjoy being around some of the band members. Sometimes there is a ton of tension in the air at practice. To be honest I have wanted to part with one of the...

The more I listen to my kick with a mic running the sound through my headphones using a hard plastic beater the less I like the sound. Its very slappy sounding and to my ear sounds somewhat...
