Re: Unanswered Threads

Don't take it personally, Red.

The thread about blizzards is getting lots of posts because there is a poster adding idiocy every time he posts.

Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

Re: DW aquires Gretsch and Latin Percussion...

This is what is known as an 'ad hominem' response.

That's Latin. It means 'to the man'. Basically it's bluster to cover up the absence of a response to the arguments presented.

It's pretty...

Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

Even at my very basic level of drumming I find that the challenge is not how to make sure I sound like me, the challenge is keeping "my" sounds out of what I am playing.

Whereas an awful lot of Mark Knopfler's guitar lines sound dead impressive, until you work them out, at which point you go "What? Is that all it is?". Don't get me wrong, I say that as a mahoosive...
