Re: Having a down period - I feel "locked" and I'm thinking too much...

Sounds to me like your afraid of failure. Like who you are as a person rides on wether or not you do a good job on something. Its no way to live friend. PM if this makes sense to you.

For all practical purposes I use a 5pc with 2 crashes, a ride and some hats. I wouldn't want to gig with much more. I'm considering adding my own rack to manage my mics and monitoring though.

Re: One of them days

Everyone has off days. Push through them with as good an attitude as you can muster. I believe that it is in these times where the most progress is made.

Re: playing quieter

Re: Converted Floor Tom Problem

Interesting! I always thought the only reason to have a 16" bass drum was to play Jazz. I never considered trying to get a fat thumpy rock sound out of it. Sounds fun. Doesn't sound very doable...

Re: Cymbal technique: Still cracking cymbals!

Hmm. I'm not sure I agree with this one. I never break cymbals, sticks, or drum heads and I always have a build up of sawdust over time on and around my kit.

Re: Nashville Number System

On a scale of 1-10 how important is knowing the NNS to a modern working drummer who divides his time between live performance, studio, rehersals, and auditions? Thanks!
