Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Another thought: IME, people who are genuinely trying to be helpful are usually aware that unasked-for advice is often unwelcome, so they go out of their way to make it as palatable as possible. I...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Well, context is everything, but my first thought is that it could be some form of jealousy. Some people enjoy belittling others and undermining them, as if that makes them (the nasty people) appear...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

You're not doing too badly for an old guy.

Great photos, as ever, and I look forward to hearing more about it by the time I get home!

Andy lives in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, to my way of thinking.

Re: Played my first Gig last night.

My dear, you must have done something right; in fact, you must have done a lot of things right, and you're clearly showing a lot of potential to do even more.

Really well done! Chuffed to bits...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Groan!

Thank you, I feel like a "proper" drummer now.

Re: The matching snare

Two of my kits have matching snares. The other has a chrome (?) one.

But as of today, the other snares can go and do one: I just acquired a 1970s Acrolite and now I feel like a PROPER drummer!

Re: Good exercises for developing mobility around the set?

"Drum Set Warm-ups" by Rod Morgenstein. Helps you to feel more comfortable and more fluid around the kit. I noticed a big difference very quickly, and other people remarked how much more relaxed I...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist

My view exactly. My singer and I met our bassist over coffee, just to get to know her a bit and to find out whether there was a fighting chance that we were compatible, and when we were looking for...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Now this really got me thinking.

I played Barbie, studied languages, and I regard my job as a wife and mother as the most important and fulfilling one I've ever done. In other words, I'm one of...

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

Oh yes. All three of mine are permanently set up, although two of them are bunched together owing to constraints of space, but every single time I see them my heart gives a little smile, and there's...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Gender-blindness gets my vote every time. That doesn't, IMO, mean that we can't laugh at each other's expense and that we can't comment on somebody's attractiveness: it does mean, for me, that the...

Re: Help me look....cooler? more relaxed?

I was going to say exactly this. I'm much more relaxed when I play with my band than at any other time. We interact with each other, smile, give and take cues ("NOW, Madge!"). At first I had to...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Porter, for the record: I appreciate you, haga!

I still don't like "You've got to see this girl, she's amazing." Why would anybody NOT say "drummer"?

Re: Beginning drummer: what to buy for practice?

I started with a e-kit that was probably an older version of the one you're looking at. It was fine as far as it went, but that wasn't very far. I was given it for Christmas and by Easter I'd bought...

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

"It seemed like a good idea at the time, Your Honour ..."

This is merely a scaled-up version of what happens to me every single time I play in front of anybody: there are always musicians there...

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

Well, Liam likes the ash best, but of course he lost his heart to it in Manchester. He still talks about it. I shall buy him one when I win the lottery.

I'd pick the beech/ovangkol for myself...

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

Don't tell me you've given up just because she said no? You lightweight!

Or have you thrown her over in favour of Yolanda?

Then again, if you prefer Porter, that's up to you. I happen to...

Re: Bass vs. drums challenge video - released here first :)

That made me smile from beginning to end! I love the way the beech & ovangkol sings, but my favourite - unexpectedly, given my usual preference - was the walnut: I enjoyed the weight and depth of...

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

I agree: it is RIDICULOUSLY difficult to find people to play with. I found my bass player via Facebook ("Find musicians in North Wales"). I was already good friends with my singer but in a...

Re: Tuning "experts" mini rant

Oh bless him! All those decals!

I think we should start a "Hall of Shame" for tuning/dampening videos, along the lines of the "Best of Craigslist" thread.
