Re: The "I wish I hadn't opened my big mouth" thread ;)

Don't sweat it -- She obviously knows you can play and wouldn't have set it up if she didn't think you could hang... Have fun and put your 'big ears' on!!! Good Luck, can't wait to hear all...

Re: Here's an idea

I did some teaching about 4-5 years ago -- I did it for about a year, just not my thing... lack of patience/time etc... my bad.

Re: I feel like I'm in a bit of a pickle.

Re: Ringo Starr... Good or bad?

I'm biased -- I LOVE Ringo and Charlie (probably my #1 and 2 in that order)...

Re: Taking back your gigs

I would never ask to 'take a gig back' no matter what the circumstances...

Re: 20x14 Bass drum for hardcore playing - my point!

I have a Sonor Safari (16x16 kick) that I own mainly for really small venues/especially low volume situations etc... and it works well in those scenarios.

Re: What's the worst kit you've had to play on?

Re: Best Advice You've Been Given

Re: Drumming pain

absolutely a technique issue... just because you studied with someone and know to stay relaxed etc, etc... doesn't prevent you from falling back into bad habits...

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

I usually start tearing down within a few min's after we're done (unless another band is following - in which case I'll hustle my stuff off stage as quick as possible).
