Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

I've been back occasionally for a while. I'm not posting like I used to, but I do dive in every now and again. Admittedly mostly in the Technique forum, and you don't see me in Drummers much.

Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

J, you need to be a bit less touchy. I wrote two rather long paragraphs about Meg White and then a short sly dig and you spent an entire post getting upset about the latter without even addressing...

Re: Meg White.....wonder drummer??

I'm scratching my head at this. Why would Meg White care about ergonomics? Her whole playing approach and tone and, indeed, the entire approach of her band is based around a certain retro-primitive...

Re: real drum notation websites

You'd learn and develop more by transcribing the songs yourself.

Re: The Matrix question

I'd just like to add a thought to the conversation.

I'm not working on Lang's "Matrix" concept, and I'm deliberately not working on it for a very specific reason.

My reason is that it is a...

Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!

I've been reading this thread for the last few days in growing amazement, and this last little burst has actually motivated me to log in and post again.

Bermuda - I don't understand why you've...

Yeah, but did he really need that second chair on his left? That seemed a bit excessive y'know, he could probably have done all of that with one...

Re: Danny Carey

They're a bit into that, but from what I've seen of their music it seems to just be a clever trick thing - you know, pick a bunch of numbers and then try to phrase around it musically. I don't think...

Re: Danny Carey

I just can't be bothered anymore. I saw them in 1997, 2001 & 2002 and just gradually watched them decend from being a fantastic band to just having a fantastic show. In 1997 they were nothing short...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I think this was part of the point of what was being discussed earlier - don't assume people can't deal with something because it's complex, people can absorb lots of weird stuff in the right...

Re: Loss of Dble Bass ability

Since I wrote my last post in this thread I've had reason to start practicing double pedal again. I haven't played it seriously (i.e: in front of people) in three years. Over that time I've lost...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

This isn't "the jazz", but if you'd asked I'd have recommended Bar Kokhba instead of The Circle Maker, I like it a lot better. Also Grand Guignol instead of Naked City... But eh, you can always...

Re: Vinnie Colauita

I can totally understand that. I've actually been discussing this exact point today with Jazzgregg, off-forum. I think in general there's only really three kinds of clinics:

Re: Vinnie Colauita

Agreed. But then, lots of drummers' seat height doesn't make sense to me. Every time I go play on a kit here in NZ I have to drop the seat dramatically to get my legs parallel with the floor -...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

It's worth mentioning that bugmenot.com might be useful for fun with allmusic, their registration system drove me up the wall because it never worked right.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

You're a little bit right, but you ignore the fact that booking pop acts brings in an audience that will hate a large swathe of the more interesting chunks of jazz. So festivals that do book pop...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Sorry, this is slightly off-topic, but that movie was a real weird one. It wasn't just Zhang Ziyi , Gong Li and Michelle Yeoh are both Chinese as well. So why cast them? I think it came down to...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I have to say, it's hard to argue with Gregg's conclusion that jazz is a widely misused musical label. Here in NZ we have an annual "jazz and blues" festival which I think in theory is supposed to...

I really hope you don't keep this kind of stuff in mind when writing, or you're likely to churn out some hideously safe, uninteresting material. People who abide by all these rules might end up...

Re: Mike Portnoy

You mean, the first after every single magazine interviewer who's ever done a piece on Portnoy? Portnoy references Ringo an awful lot.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I've got a little story about this kind of thing that, while unlikely to bring tears to any eyes, might have some bearing. When I was maybe three or so I lived next door to a slightly older boy who...

Re: Loss of Dble Bass ability

One think I'd like to raise is that maybe you didn't have the double bass thing as down as you thought. Generally, if I learn something properly I don't forget it fast. When I say "properly" I mean...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

The thing is, I'm not even a big jazz listener either. Jazz of all forms makes up maybe 20-25% of my music collection, tops. Admittedly I have a pretty big collection, but that's still nothing like...
