Re: Biggest problem with a sub, or new band member?

Re: Jazz players - did we get this right?

The first tuning is what i like to hear in regards to a traditional Jazz sound.

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

That 602 Flat Ride is what did it for me. It was such a contrast to the "washy" rides that i was told i have to have to play Jazz. I also loved what Paul Wertico did with flats on the Pat Metheny...

Definitely chart out the tunes. You don't have to write a complete chart but it's nice to have tempos, song structure, cues and important fills notated. You'll be surprised at how much you retain...

Re: Tattoos are cool I guess

Exactly. It's not only about the music, it's about the image and the "hang."

I've been subjected through some funny, disappointing and just plain head scratching questions and comments (as we all...

The "hell no". Was straight from the tour manager. Portnoy may not be aware of this but that tour manager has pissed off a some dedicated fans.
