Re: Check out this hilarious drumming video!

Silly question, what are the fills in the "Keep it simple" sections called? I don't know how to do them, would love to, but don't know what to look for. Interesting & silly video otherwise.

Re: Weird Al Show

I'm really hoping they add some shows in Eastern Idaho. So far I've seen Al & company three times, twice in Idaho Falls, including their 1000th show, and once in Lewiston. Would be great to have a...

Re: Pork Pie Hip Pig Eastern Mahogany Snare

I almost got one of these at least 6 times, that's how tempted I was. However I didn't know how much, if any, improvement this would have been over my 13X7 Ddrum Dominion Maple snare.

How is the...

Re: Giving bandmates rides to gigs!

Ask for gas money, especially if it is long distance.

I am the person with the truck & camper shell in our band, so by default we use it to haul ourselves and our equipment. For anything over 50...

Re: Deceptively cool and challenging drum tracks...

I agree!! Just had this conversation last week as it has been one of our troublesome covers. The energy for the opening half comes from the guitars / vocals, the drums are just sorta along for the...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I have a set of Ultimate Support soft cases that have worked great for me. Supplemented that with Gator bags which also seem to be well built. Both are well padded and have a strong nylon type...

Re: screwed up my first gig

It's all about keeping a cool head and having a quick seamless recovery. Dropping sticks? Should be expected, so have a stick bag or holder close. I keep a minimum of two pairs in a stick bag that is...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

Mostly A for us, though I've given the other members the option of buying it for the band. Same goes for a lot of our other equipment, just the reality of me having the most disposable and steady...

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

We did a gig about a week ago and one of the drummers there had a Mapex custom micro kit and it looked badass. Problem was once he started playing it the sound, mainly the bass drum, was very...

Groove and studio recording

Serious question here. How does one get groove on a studio recording when you record like this"

1. Lay down scratch track with main players and get primary drum tracks
2. Rerecord rhythm

Re: Gorilla Music

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

Recordings are good. They can can be a moral builder, a learning tool, and sometimes a reality check. Nothing wrong with any of those things.

Re: Light up drums??

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I am really surprised at how many players here don't use double bass. We play mostly alt rock, but hang out and perform with a lot of other bands who are in the metal scene were double bass is a must.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

Somewhere between # 2 & 4.

I have tried various double pedals from no name, PDP, Axis, and currently have an Iron Cobra Junior (light and smooth). But I don't use it. Spent way too long with a...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

I'm open to finales, but believe either the whole band is involved or no one otherwise it is just showboating.

Re: More Creative on a Larger Kit

I'm not creative enough to play on a 4 piece, so I use a 6 piece with as many cymbals. Honestly I use more traditional rock fills and feel limited with less than 3 toms. A 7 piece is just a little...

Re: Gorilla Music

Yeah, we are more alt rock, some other bands listed range to x-metal. So it is a rather mixed bill. Some of the younger bands on the bill are treating this like it is their big break, which I guess...
