Re: reference vs masters premium

Dude, I have a Reference kit and honestly it is the best kit I have ever heard. The kick drum sound alone is worth the $3k. I can't say enough good things about it. I have played on a lot of...

Re: I seem to have lost my way...

Do you read music? There is so much material out there to practice that there is no reason to get stuck or be bored. The X factor is being able to read. If you can, just buy a book related to...

Re: STICK CONTROL (george L stone) your experiences and suggestions

The way I'm using Stick Control now is by practicing the first few pages as 16ths over a 16th note single stroke roll on the kick. I usually play the right hand on the hi-hat or ride and the left...

Re: Should I play left Handed?

Re: Best Compliment Ever Received

I played for my high school pep band, and after a girl's basketball game on the road a woman approached me as I was loading the kit out to the bus.

She said,"I was here for my daughter's game...

Re: Matt Cameron

They play crazy fast live. I think their live albums sound like ass, personally. I still love their first two albums, though. Matt Cameron and Dave Abbruzese were the drummers that influenced me...

Re: Matt Cameron

I read an interview with Matt Cameron some years ago, and he explained that for the first few albums, he was not even aware that they were playing in odd times. Nobody in the band at the time was a...

Re: Who is your favorite drummer(s)

Dennis Chambers. I know there are a lot of great drummers out there, and I love them all, but DC has a special place in my heart. He's just unreal.

Re: drummer depressed and discouraged

If you're getting to a plateau with your practicing, it's helpful to review how you have been practicing. I think it's beneficial to set long term goals for yourself, and then write down short term...

Re: Colaiuta on megadeth???

He's thinking "Damn this paycheck is sweet! I think those 20" rims will look good on the Lexus, or perhaps I should get a new flat screen TV?"

Re: Learning from which pro?

Oh yeah, she's good at the drums too.
