Re: Lefty drummer problems

I'm a lefty and never had a problem transposing what I saw into my southpaw setup. Most of it's aural, anyway - I'm listening while I'm watching, and making those mental connections to the...

Re: Passing On Experience

Stewart Copeland said two things that have always stayed with me:

1) "The walk from backstage to your kit on-stage should be as relaxed as a stroll through your living room."

2) "Just by...

Re: Aches in my hand

Nice playing! I was definitely wrong, you do seem to play very relaxed (surprisingly so for that kind of music, too).

Dr. Watso's advice sounds good to me. Listen to him! And let us know if it...

Re: Practice-related quotes

These are all really good, and honestly inspiring! Great idea for a thread. Don't really have anything to add, but you can bet I'll be checking back.

Re: Get better Andy!

Wow, I've never met Andy and only know him superficially through these message boards, but I read everything he writes and truly enjoy his insights and attitude. Plus, he's a fantastic drummer, as...

Re: Aches in my hand

+1 all of this. When I - at long last, after many years of drumming - finally learned how to start relaxing my grip, it was amazing how all the little aches and pains of my wrists and fingers melted...

Re: If you could educate the public about one thing concerning drumming/percussion, what would it be

That we're more smarter than people think.

Everyone thinks drummers are dum. I'm always like 'no way, your dum.'

Re: Just Came From Terrible Audition - I sucked!

Oh, believe me - that experience HURT! Like a woman leaving you. I was devastated!

The best thing that could have possibly happened was that not long later, the same band lucked into another...

Re: Doing what comes naturally

So true! I'm a terribly unschooled drummer, but I've been doing it for quite a while now - and that whipping of the snare drum is what's gotten me all the gigs I currently have. All before I ever...

Re: Just Came From Terrible Audition - I sucked!

Hell, sometimes you're up against it...

I had a recording session with a quasi-'name' producer in California many years ago; the band I was touring with had a few days off, and we used them to get...

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

James, do you have a blog, or newsletter that I can subscribe to?

I need these pearls of wisdom more frequently. "Younger than I'll ever be." Ha! Good stuff!

Re: Kenny Aronoff with John Fogerty

I always thought that what set Aranoff apart was that when you hear him play - on any song, with any artist, live or recorded - you can feel his enthusiasm.

I know that's completely abstract, and...

Re: Anyone ever play in full drum enclosure?

Man, just a few weeks ago I played in one of these AT A CLUB.

It was obviously to give the sound man more control over the drums, and nothing else - the club was very large, extremely high...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Completely agree. I guess I'm just easily amused, but I honestly don't care too much about the set list - let the singer and guitarist worry about that. I just figure that whatever they throw at me,...

Re: Should I Quit Band Due to Constant Critiques By Singer?

Yeah! You started the band - kick HER out!

If the other guys in the band want to join her, so what? You were already contemplating leaving.

Re: Weezer plays Rosanna..

WOW this is a tough crowd...

I thought it sounded excellent. I didn't know their drummer was that proficient, to tell the truth. I'm impressed - but clearly in the minority.

Could I do better?...

Re: When is a good time to quit a band?

Man, that doesn't sound so bad for just a few practices. If you get along with the other guys, don't discount that - if you can hang together, you can improve together. I think you can work that...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Larry! It ails me to hear you so pessimistic. I mean, I hate humanity too - but I don't think we're being manipulated by the higher-ups to quite that extent. I think we do still have a lot of say in...

Re: Forum Views Drum Gear vs. Forum Views Drum Technique..

Basically true in my experience as well - seems the best shit-talkers were the ones least likely to back up their talk on the kit. But as far as gear was concerned, I figured if the guy was going to...

Re: Forum Views Drum Gear vs. Forum Views Drum Technique..

Oh, so true.

Two touring scenarios stand out in my mind:

1) Playing in Orlando FL circa 2000. Guy in the opening band has an eight-piece brand-new top-of-the-line gunmetal DW kit with about...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Both so true, and so applicable to my own situation.

I've been playing for thirty years, done a lot in those thirty years - gigging, recording, touring, etc. Studios, record labels,...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

No kidding! So did I. Mine was a bass player who was discovered puking drunk by his parents at the age of 15...something that happens to roughly 95% of all 15-year-old boys.

But his parents...
