Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

Depends how much I like the original drum part.. If its something like "Stop" by Sam Brown, drummed by Gavin Harrison, then I try my best to copy the parts because they are so subtle and tasty. A...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

Probably #3. Every time I think about working on it seriously, I get inspired by a single kick player to work on everything else instead (most recently Anika Nilles).

Re: I think I might have been practicing wrong for a long time..

I had this problem, and it went on for longer than 6 years.. It was really down to unfocussed practise, "distracted" practise, and practising the wrong things. I usually ended up just playing along...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

I'm currently just in the covers band I've been in for 15 years or so. It's more of a social thing really! We get together once a fortnight and just play - we don't really gig. A couple of years...

Re: how to use Stick Control

And there was me rolling it up and whacking the cymbals with it.

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?

It is a fairly small motion .. though often the right hand is whipping with it on some grooves (it seems fairly natural to use a moeller type motion on the hi-hat; I don't think I've ever seen anyone...

Re: Do you use moeller for back beats?

I just tried it now without any whipping motion; it felt very strange! Sort of lacking in energy. So definitely yes I do use it.

Re: Left hand thumb keeps sliding of the stick

Personally I would learn to play thumb and first finger first, and then second finger when you have that down.. Since doing that with my new teacher, my grip has become much much better.

I spent...

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...
