Re: playing along with stuff

Re: Drumming Karma

I saw the doors several times while they toured their first few albums. All very good shows. You shouldn't feel bad about coming in 2nd to them in something as silly as a band battle and feeling...

Re: defying conventional drum set up for unique sound

I used to tape a split off tip from a stick to my brushes with the tip extending an inch or so up the wires. Added a little punch when swatting a drum and tip tick on cymbals.

Re: Alternate purpose for drum shield

Could always put it where it'll block the over amped guitar from damaging your ears.

Re: For the rockers - I've lost the will to headbang

I occasionally go out to see friends playing but the venue's are jazz/dinner clubs.(My friends and I are in our 60's) There's always a table. I never go to bars any more.

If there's a really...

Re: Tilting the snare

One way to look at it is, if you always play traditional grip tilt away like Buddy may be good for you.

Re: song lyrics writers?

Yup, that's been done.


Maybe that's not the type of crane you had in mind. Cool song though.

Re: What's with The Who?

For me, the Who's catalog has stood the test of time. I can still enjoy listening to most of their records. As for Moon, I don't see his work as very complex but it was very dynamic. I see Moon as...

Re: The Drum Solo

Back in my gigging days I can only recall playing a drum solo once. That is the type of solo when the band stops and goes to get a beer or something. I never liked the idea that a drummers solo...

Re: Stolen Drums, a long, frustrating story

Probably too late now but it might have been worth fingerprinting. The thief may have had priors.

Glad you've recovered your drums.

Seems like the store owner could help track down the thief.

Re: Most egotistical genre ;)

Hands down, polka band drummers. Every polka drummer on the planet just wants to show off their umpah.

Actually it's an individual thing. Some play for the music, some to please the crowd and some...

Re: Happy Birthday Tony Williams ...

Tony Williams has long been my favorite player. Boundless imagination. Had the pleasure of seeing the lifetime band a couple times. It was a sad day when I heard of his passing.

We're so lucky...

Re: Race in drumming

I guess it comes down to knowing if folks of different races were born and raised in the same culture, would there be any difference in their drum playing?

I sure don't know, but I think our lives...
