Re: Has anyone read the book "The Wrecking Crew"?

My understanding is that Carol Kaye hates the term "Wrecking Crew". And that it was largely an invention of Blaine and Tedesco. Does anyone know the back story on this?

Re: Does playing covers change you?

But Larry, there are folks who can have a click and backing tracks going and still play with fire and emotion. It's hard. The folks I know who can do it are the cream of local players. But like...

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

The kids these days who grew up listening to drum machine tracks play tighter than folks back in the day. It's a different thing. But the good folks can groove and play clean and tight. Hard to do...

Re: So how's this for bitter?

I've read about this "technique" but never tried it. I think it comes from some famous rock producer who did it somewhere. Could be an urban legend too. It's supposed to do the cannon thing with a...

Re: I accept defeat.

DD9 has a point on smaller stages where folks are crammed together. Like a corporate gig in a ballroom where you need sound reinforcement but are typically on a comparatively small stage. With the...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

When it's set up in advance and you know what's going on, you can prepare. Bring a spare snare (I usually do anyway) and cymbals you're less worried about. Organize it to be the beginning or end of...

Re: When playing one up and one down...

The other thing is that unless I'm doing some rock song that specifically has a continuous roll around the toms, I never do that on my own. I tend to play more broken up or linear. To my ears the...

Re: I accept defeat.

Oh man, there's a whole market out there for GitPorts. Just think of the marketing malarkey you can come up with. And save all the arguments about where the mic goes.

Re: Using a PA

Running everything though a PA "can" reduce your stage volume. And distribute more even sound to the audience in smaller/moderate sized venues. This only works if folks can keep it down. ...

Re: Many cymbals yes, but many snares?

So, I have 4 ride cymbals in varying degrees of darkness and dryness. Also 4 snares along the same lines. Acro at one end. Maple Ludwig and Gretsch and a hammered brass PDP at the bright/loud end....

Re: When playing one up and one down...

Yeah, the whole reason to play a one up kit is to have the ride in a comfortable position. Rolls around the drums are easier with them up in front of you and no major gaps. But I spend more time on...

Re: Blues Drumming Done Right

Here's another take on that tune at the beginning of this vid. June Core who listened to a ton of Fred.

I really like the wood hoops I have on an old 8 lug Ludwig snare. While they won't give a really sharp crack like the die cast ones on my Gretsch, they have a lot of tonal variation. The sound...

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

Many years ago I did a vintage style recording with a single 57 overhead above the snare drum. Other than not having a modern kick sound ('60s Ludwig Holiday kit wasn't going to do that anyway. ...

Re: end of guitar centre?

Re: Why do blues bands want "rock & roll" drummers?

Blues is a whole different thing than rock. Especially folks into more traditional Chicago or Texas blues, Hubert, Muddy, Freddie and so on. The last thing they want to hear is someone doing a ZZ...

Re: Bands and tempo arguments

You can put LiveBPM on your phone and look at the graph afterwards. If you have tempo changes within the song you can still see if those sections sped up or dragged.

Re: extreme tom angles and snare tilt

Looks like more of an affectation to me. But if you can still play them like that, then hey, everybody's talking.

Buddy played more with his fingers over the top of the stick than the typical...

Re: How to protect your ears while testing out gear?

Andy, love ya man. But hearing damage is cumulative and doesn't always manifest itself as a tapering of HF acuity. One day you wake up and the ringing is there and doesn't stop. Or you hear weird...

Re: A few recording questions

Tracking with compression will suck up the level of other things. Typically cymbals, which tend to be played too loudly and take up all the sonic space, will get even louder in the balance. Also,...

Re: Warning - Hidden dangers of drum building.

Fender has been using Pao Ferro on fingerboards for years. Or at least listing it on their spec sheets. Have to take care when re-fretting as well. Although it's not creating as much dust as...

Re: do i need a hi hat mic?

For most live things, cymbals get into everything. Start with a kick mic and then a snare mic. If you sing, leave the mic on over you and it will usually pick up enough snare to help in a small...

Yes, all space must be filled up. And you must beat the lead singer to it. ;-) Love it.
