Re: Good exercises to do away from the kit and pad?

You could always practice brushes on a newspaper too.

For the kids here, a "newspaper" is basically the internet made out of paper...

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

Which exercise specifically? The right hand playing the melody and left filling in the missing triplet partials?

Re: new thread deleted. help?

And every dinner party seems to have at least one "Me Monster". The guy that only wants to talk about himself, what he does, etc. and not engage in actual conversation with others.

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

Good question. I suppose it's different for everyone. As Larry said, it depends on what your goals are.

I have taken lessons in the past; about 4 years total. I haven't found a local teacher...

Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

Same here. I'm stuck in Nebraska for now. At least they know what a drum shop IS in Southern California.

The only local drum shop--and I use that term loosely--has devolved into sort of a...

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

What about for the Weird Al stuff? How do you approach not just the correct part but the correct sound as well? Or is that why you have an arsenal of snares and cymbals?

I have always been...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Not backwards at all. This is what I've been doing lately. I was going for a nice fat sound with the 6.5 brass and was surprised how low I didn't have to go.

If you try to tune the larger drum...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

I've been messing with the same thing. I recently switched back to my 5" Supra as my go-to snare. Previously, I had used a Pearl Steve Ferrone 6.5" brass signature snare; basically a BB copy.

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

And sure enough, Gibraltar makes one of those too. I actually bought one of those quick release clutches when I really needed one (forgot on at a gig...luckily the music store was 15 minutes away)...

Re: Ain't no more fun...

Dude, that sucks.

Although, it's nice to have such a huge reminder of why you quit, right there on the last day, huh? Good riddance.

Re: How do you feel about buying used records?

That reminds me... I recently had to explain to a few younger guys at work exactly what "liner notes" were. They seriously had no clue.

That is a secondary issue that I personally have with...

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

I've had that happen too. I learned that lesson a long time ago. Play everything as if it's being recorded. Because sometimes, it is.

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

I've wondered the same thing. I use that exact clutch on one of my kits. After messing with it for a while I figured the threads weren't long enough at all. I do appreciate the threadless portion...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

What about head choice? Do you use single ply or 2 ply heads? Do you change one over for the other if the gig is mic'd?

I tune my drums on the high side as well and always use single ply....

Re: The Supra returns ;)

I believe all of the Yamaha signature snares have been discontinued for some time now.

That's unfortunate because they had some pretty cool snares; Dave Weckl's, Roy Haynes' copper snare, Steve...

Re: The Supra returns ;)

I know what you mean.

I recently went back to using my 14x5 Supra for pretty much everything. It had been my 3rd string back up snare, but after pampering it with a new head and new snare wires...

How do you feel about buying used records?

Polly's quote in the piracy thread got me thinking about this and thought it deserved it's own thread. Here is her statement:



I've often wondered this too.

You just need to find another church, Rogue. Or just stop playing in them, like you have.

Re: played (maybe joined) in blues band

I would say that if you are wanting to get off in to the blues, just forget the Steely Dan, Porcaro shuffle, and the rock guy playing the shuffle on the bass drum thing, and other stuff like that.
