Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Beautiful location and pretty neat looking venue ... looks like good fun! (although I can imagine the toll the days will take on you ... take good care)

BTW, I found your "report" last year very...

Re: Buying a versatile snare

+1 for this.

Given the nature of the question, it sounds like a fairly "new" player.

Suggestion: Find/Buy an Acro for less than $100 and spend the $$ you save on some pro cymbals (if you...

Re: Walnut stave snare being built for me

Thx for the pics - I love seeing such drums crafted. (Andy, your many pics/posts have taught me more about drum making in the past couple of years than the previous 2 decades.)

One question, why...

Re: no bass player?.. no problem!

It is good to be skeptical about such things, methinks.

I played in an organ trio off and on for years without a bassist. B3 Organ player played bass, respected what a good bass line meant, and...

Re: Brain Fart :-)

Funny how sometimes the more others try to help, the worse it gets. Perhaps it has to do with their (or your) sense of panic... lol

Re: Some thoughts on keeping time

Just finished a "rehearsal" of sorts. "Rehearsal" as it was more figuring out arrangements and keys. As such, I had mini-kit ... bass drum (converted floor tom), snare, ride, and hats.

Re: Better than the original??.....Noooooo!!!!!!

I humbly suggest that sometimes different versions work for the listener's mood. Forget this "better" business.

Re: Well...I didn't think I was being loud

+1 for this post and Larry's earlier one. It is mostly about technique ... and a technique that, once developed, will pay dividends for the rest of your days.

For many things, rimshots being one...

Re: Advantages of metal snares in jazz.

From taiko:
I've never subscribed to the idea that there is any particular right drum for any particular style of music and certainly not for jazz.

Re: Mount Rushmore of Drumming: What does it look like?

Good point Henri about the great unwashed (i.e. non-drummers).

The other issue is narrowing it down to 4 drummers. There have still only been 43 presidents (correct?) ... so a tribute to the...

Re: A song sprung on you out of the blue?

Re: is anyone ever satisfied with their playing?

"Satisfied" is the word prompting the debate. As above, I'm usually "satisfied" if my band mates give me praise (genuine praise) after a gig. That does NOT mean I don't evaluate what I did ......

Re: Most egotistical genre ;)

Jazz and classical have taken their lumps on this thread. But when I think of ego and music, I think of blues guitarists as being up there at the top of the list. I...

Re: I just acquired this 1950 Gretsch Bop Kit

It is always permissible to change one's mind. ;-)

I don't have a prob with the left hand shuffle on the snare ... jazzy guy who tried to cop Buddy and Jeff H built up that technique. I can swing it and snap it. No issue.

Re: Providing the time

Excellent thread ... applicable to all drummers at some point.

As Larry and alparrott mentioned, resorting to simplicity helps when other players have their own interpretations of the time.
