Re: Jazz

Simple answer... I don't want to play it, but I respect the drummers that do. It's like opera, 5 minutes of listening and I'm looking for the door. Although I don't like the music, I highly respect...

Re: Jazz

Nope not a jazz drummer. (I love Rock and Roll...) I've tried to like jazz but I just can't. However the jazz drummers I've seen on this forum blow me away. Fact is I'm jealous. Yeah, I think jazz is...

Re: Jazz

Just my opinion but a good jazz drummer displays far more interpretive taste than say a good rock drummer. I wanted to say that a good jazz drummer is "tastier" than a good rock drummer but oh the...

Re: Where's all the gear?

A while back I had the same thoughts and started a new thread, first post below in blue... But I think the answer is that most people still want the shiny new stuff. So, if the new stuff is cheaper...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Here's my take. Sorry if I'm covering someone (but I thought of these first ;)
1. Those 8 inch tom's...really?
2. Fusion/Hybrid sets. What's that mean?
3. Heavy weight hardware on mid level...

Re: Enjoy !

+1 Thanks Tony! After reading much of Ringo Starr...Good or Bad, I'd like to post this video over there. The guys on this video cut through the BS and said all that needs to be said.

Re: Help! Can't keep time without a metronome

Sorry to be so dense but as a cynical, sarcastic, iconoclastic, SOB I don't get why you smell a rat here? The guy is asking for help, yes?

Re: What Drum Moments Give You the Chills

Re: Interesting minimalist style...

I think Boomka is spot on. The performance seemed very self (drummer) promoting and the music got lost in his shuffle. IMO the snare was too loud and way too busy. Kinda, like a mid western hailstorm...

Re: Who Here Loves Rock

I don't so much love drumming as much as I love drumming to great rock. If I couldn't drum I'd take up the guitar because I love the music that much. It's not high brow, it's not hard to play. It's...

Re: Old School Drumming

Hollywood, your critique of the kids shows an excellent eye and ear. But what did you mean by saying "Very few regular songs played here." What's regular? My regular is Rock as played (stuck) in the...

Re: I'm getting withdrawal symptoms!

I read your post and find my circumstances similar and it really is a personal risk-benefit kind of decision. However, I'd like to point out that hearing loss is not just a function of environment...

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

I play rock and find it much easier to play matched grip for many of the reasons already given. However, when I was contemplating my changeover I found an old interview with Buddy Rich. While he...

Re: 15 for 30 challenge!

Or maybe how my ex-lead guitarist wanted me to play Clapton's "Wonderful Tonight". I kept going slower and he kept saying "That's not my tempo".

Re: DW and Gretsch

All may look well from our vantage point, but if you are a Gretch employee... look out. IMO DW will soon be "consolidating" operations. I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I think less (and lighter) drums as previously mentioned is the real answer.

1. Play basic. Try a one up, one down tom setup. Then find a good crash ride. One to two less toms and less cymbals =...
