Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Re: I've Got Blisters on my Fingers!

I just recently got them mid-way though a show last Sat. night. The thing is, I rarely ever get them and I play just about every day. Then it occurred to me that the varnish on a brand new pair of...

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

That's what I was referring to, in jest of course. The term "smart" is vague and can be applied to different measures, however I do think you need serious intelligence to have "emotional IQ" (as you...

Re: Chinese Maple vs. Canadian Maple vs. North American Maple?
