Re: Learning to read music..?

I'm honestly really offended by this

I've had a love for drumming ever since I was a little kid. Before I had a drum kit, I'd use buckets and different things around the house to make a "drum kit"...

Re: I can only play original music?

Hold on, you mean like actual headphones, don't you? I thought you meant the kind used to prevent hearing damage. At least I think that's what they're used for..

Re: Learning to read music..?

It's funny because I posted this looking for arguments from both ends, but I just disregard anything going towards not learning to read. Hypocritical I guess

But as much as I'd like to learn, I'm...

Re: I can only play original music?

Well here's another thing I forgot to mention.. when I try covers, I usually play the original song REALLY loud on my speakers and go at it. Even though I can barely hear the song over my drums, it...

Re: Just starting out

Hey man, why all the hate for me recommending a double pedal? I wish I'd gotten one sooner! Rather you need it or not it's still nice to have, and it certainly doesn't hold a gun to your head and...

Re: Just starting out

I do my best to say this to every beginner I can

DOUBLE BASS DOUBLE BASS DOUBLE BASS

No matter what you're looking to play, it makes things so much more fun and perhaps even easier. Definitely...

Re: Think I found my calling :)

Awesome you started playing man. If you don't have it already, the first thing I'd recommend getting is a good double bass pedal. It really does make playing a million times better imo

Re: Does anyone here wear two different shoes for hi hat and bass drum pedals?

This is interesting, I've never heard of anybody doing this. In all honesty it sounds a little silly but I'm not one to judge

Personally wearing shoes at all messes up my playing. I prefer being...

Re: I can only play original music?

As cliche as it sounds, I play what I feel. I guess you'd call it improv.. but yes, if I play something I like I'll memorize it and add it into my playing

While I can't do covers, I still take...

Re: Just how much DO drummers make?

I'd imagine Matt Cameron makes a decent living. I mean being the drummer for Pearl jam AND Soundgarden must come with some luxury

But, I've never expected drums to be a career. It's just too small...

Re: I can only play original music?

Is this an iOS app? It sounds really helpful..

And I completely agree that it's better than not being able to think for yourself, but it's no fun being restricted to it either. Watching drum...

Re: I can only play original music?

I'd say it's a little of both, but even songs I've known my whole life I end up losing my rhythm.. maybe if I learned to read music this would come easier

I can only play original music?

Anybody else have this problem? There's a handful of songs I can play, but I just have a hard time playing anything I haven't written myself. Which kinda sucks because I'd like to start doing covers...

I don't have a drum key but will be getting one soon. Once I do I'll try these things out, but as for the bass drum I still plan on using a pillow and an impact pad. Even if I can deaden it by...

Re: Learning to read music..?

This is a really unique way of putting it, I like that. I don't know if I'll ever put in the time to learn but it'd be nice. Maybe when I'm older things like this will seem more interesting

Re: Marching snare on a full kit?

Popcorn snares remind me more of reggae.. which is really similar, but so different. Ska snares are really tight, that's why I compared them to a marching snare

Re: Marching snare on a full kit?

What I'm kinda shooting for is a ska type sound. I don't play ska, but the way the snares sound are amazing. Listen to anything by Reel Big Fish.. tell me that snare doesn't just blow your mind
