Re: Facing adversity from behind the kit.

Bass player's strap came undone causing him to drop his bass on my ride cymbal.

Re: Accent technique

I agree with this. Spend a good period of time going through Accents and Rebounds and Master Studies SLOWLY and as you speed it up you'll find you're naturally able to apply the exercises at higher...

Re: Yet another recording question!!

If that's all you're looking for why not consider getting a Zoom H2 or H4?

Re: The 10,000 Hour Drummer

Jorge Rossy

Not sure why he doesn't have a thread yet, but here it is!
