Re: Hating your playing, sometimes or always.

Step 1. Figure out why.

Until you do that, we can only speculate.

I play very very basic drums and I generally love the way it sounds whether recorded or live because I'm listening to the...

Re: What computer should I get?

Mac and Garage Band. Then make the transition into Logic for more detailed work.

Re: Are R16 Instructions for Rocket Scientists?

It's been a couple years since I recorded directly into my R16. I don't remember any details but I remember the cards getting filled up fast

If you have a Mac, use the R16 as an interface and use...

Re: Blasphemy! - Pic Heavy

That's funny. Blasphemy was my exact word when someone first suggested E drums. Now I'm a convert.

I converted my A kit about a year ago

Re: How stupid is this?

Stupid? Hardly.

I had an old throne that would slowly screw itself lower. After a few months, I'd notice that I was inadvertently hitting the snare rims a lot and then realize I was shrinking. I...

Re: Is this "Unprofessional"

You or them?

Ya gots to go with the flow. I don't even own brushes but I would figure out something. Maybe that thing where you hold the butt of your stick on the head and click the other end on...

Re: I'm going to see Billy Cobham live!

I saw him in the early 70's in a really great venue (2500 seats with a revolving stage in the center). He was the coolest drummer I'd ever seen. There was so much sound coming from the kit and he...

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

The original is 167ish and it's real easy to speed that one up, especially if you are playing the very basic drum parts as originally recorded.

I put the synth on backing tracks so we need to...

Re: Other songs that sound like other songs

La Bamba/Twist and Shout comes to mind, but the list is certainly long.

Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

The woodshed metronome and the full band click is the same thing. The woodshed just involves the drummer and the band setting involves everyone. It's a training tool, not a safety net. The more you...

Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

Don't hate the playa :)

And, it has nothing to do with scrotums.

The fact is, you have no idea what your timing is like until you check it with a click. Give it a go and report back.

Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

In my head, the song is ours. Music is a team sport and time is time.

And, I doubt than anyone can tell if a band was playing flawlessly in time. I don't hear tempo variations in older music until...

Re: Who has to play to a click or backing track live?

I do backing tracks 99% of the time in two bands and I have a love/hate relationship with the machine (SPD-SX)

I don't wear headphones. The whole band needs to hear the tracks in order to stay on...

Re: Aerosmith sweet emotion drumless

I have several hundred tracks but for some reason, that is the only Aerosmith I have.

I pulled them from a website a few years ago. I'm sure the files are still hosted on a server somewhere in the...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

Mine featured Eric Clapton also, along with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker in 1967.

Re: Cheap recording/editing program?

This





And this.

I struggled with Audacity and Sonar but stepped right into Garage Band with no issues. It was worth buying a Mac just for GB that comes loaded for free.

Re: I HIT TO HARD

I hit too hard also because, 1) I'm a clumsy brute and 2) I switched to an E kit.

When I play an A kit, I just aim for the outer edges of the heads and it cuts the Dbs by 50% or more.

Re: Is live music dead?

It may be dying, but it aint dead yet.

There are far more venues in my area now than there were in the 80's/90's

The venues also pay far less than they used to.

Keep it simple. If you want to avoid being boring, smile and make eye contact. Pretend like you know what you are doing :)

Re: Songs with Cello

There is a bunch of synthesized cello in some of The Cars music.

The cello is an awesome sounding instrument and you could use it a lot, even if it wasn't in the original song.
