Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

I have always suffered from this. I'm pretty sure the vast majority of my failings are mental, not physical. Certainly, there are physical limits when the speeds get up there, but when having...

Re: The Clave Police

In every genre of every art form, there are always traditionalists who get bent out of shape when someone does something different. I do think the clave police are amongst the worst offenders in this...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

I don't care for it, but I do it because, well, I need the money. I try to maintain some respect (for myself and the other party) by simply making one fair offer and very politely saying something...

Re: Adware?

You (any of you seeing that ad) probably have some kind of virus/adware/malware infection. I run no virus protection or ad blocking software (I'm just careful...and taking a chance), and I have no...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist


As a yank, I feel compelled to say....you're pretty much right. I like to think I'm a bit more sane and relaxed than most (no guns needed). But the paranoia of my countrymen is astounding....

Re: Posture

I agree. I see that line of thinking in many areas of life, "XYZ did it the hard/wrong/bad/dangerous/sloppy/inefficient way and he was the GREATEST!". My response, which is usually ignored or not...

Re: Drummers Brains Are Actually Different

I've seen a few of those as well. Perhaps it is self-serving journalists and psychiatrists. What better way to get people talking about your work than to make it complimentary about some group of...

Re: Will it affect your ability to work with other musicians if you're tone deaf?


I have heard a few voice teachers say that unless you are clinically tone-deaf (meaning ZERO ability to differentiate between ANY pitches), you can learn to sing, which means you will first...

Re: Just curious -----------

Apparently I've offended some people by answering a question that was asked. I'm kind of confused by that, as I thought my reasoning was pretty obvious and simple, but I may have been wrong: I don't...

Re: Just curious -----------

I was intrigued by the contest, and might still enter, but a few things have slowed me down:

1. I had concerns similar to Gruntersdad. Although with the rule change, I suppose I'm okay with it...

Re: First use of a click

The tapping "has been incorrectly identified as a metronome in the past", according to engineer Geoff...

Re: Staining drum heads with coffee

GRUNTERSDAD may be correct, I don't know. However, I do know that in older times, tea was actually used for lots of dyeing. Probably a bit easier than coffee, you wouldn't have a bunch of loose...

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

I have a clarinet. I haven't played it in a while, but I've been meaning to get back to it. I played alto and bass clarinet in high school. It's an awesome instrument, good-size pitch range and...

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

I have a love/hate relationship with the Ken Burns doc. It is clearly the largest, most ambitious, longest, most thorough piece ever devoted to jazz. However, although I did say "most thorough",...

Re: Do you hear sounds or mechanics when you play?

Same story: I play an e-kit, and I swear I have different 'abilities' and things feel different when different sounds are loaded.

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

Actually it is MUCH easier to do with an e-kit. Just record MIDI and you can move any single note anywhere, perfectly and individually. Also, the DAW will probably have a single "Quantize" button...

I'm kind of the same with guitars. About ten years ago, I had a lot of money, and I bought some really really nice guitars. I love them, but now I have this crazy sort of melancholy that I can't find...
