Re: "Chameleon" drum selection

In those days Harvey's drums were pretty damped. But a 5-6" deep wood snare should do it.

I recently did a session where the studio had a 6" wood DW fitted with one of those Evans Genera Dry...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

Have to look into that UltraTouch stuff for bass traps where you want different densities.

Typical damping panels are made from Owens Corning 703 rigid fiberglass insulation. This is what you see...

Re: Gear fail - handled beautifully :)

I thought he was going to leave it on the snare. I picked that trick up from a Baltimore guy named Bryant Mills. Sounds like hand claps, great for a funk groove although that song is a bit more...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

35dB attenuation is pretty tough. That plexi room isn't going to do it.

Is the intended room on the ground floor? On a slab? Not sure how you intended to isolate the kit underneath but that's...

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

Where are you in the bay area? What kind of jams are you going to? I go to lot's on the peninsula and south bay. It's good to play on other people's kits and with other players. And the...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Just got back from a work trip to China. Got to see this on the plane. Really agree with a lot of points here. The straining to just play fast was silly. How many times have experienced folks...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

Forgot my throne on a gig an hour from home. Fortunately it was the bass players home town and he borrowed one from a buddy. Hard to find phone books to stack on a chair these days. ;-)

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

I did some workshops with a former MI instructor who would rent some place with a big stage so that garage/bar players could get used to having people 20' away. I actually kind of like it. You can...

Re: Is this a good deal?

Also, someone who has persisted in playing with the bottom heads removed may well be an old school rocker who hits hard. You'd want someone who really knows what to look for to examine the good...

Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

I loved the concept of social music. Playing together and making it work.

Re: Is this a good deal?

There's a used shop here that would sell that ride for between $100 and $150. The unmarked cymbal may be an older Zildjian, in which case it might be worth $120 or so. The other cymbals may be...

Re: Blurred lines ripped off the "feel"

Moar Cowbell!

From having played both, I can attest that the latin cowbell figure in Blurred Lines is much more difficult than Give It Up. ;-)

Bass line has the same time figure but...

Re: Technical playing and grooving

I have spent some time playing guitar with a couple of young gospel chop style players. Folks that have fairly substantial chops. But to me the gospel part is being able to do whatever they do with...

Re: What's on your bass drum reso head?

Same here. One says Sonor and the other says D'Amico. Primarily because they came with the drums. Although when I had the Renowns and switched to a white reso, I bought a Gretsch decal for it.

Re: How to make hi-hats swing sideways?

Some folks swivel their heel sideways which might contribute to this.

Re: The first bar "settling in" period

Yep, depends on the song and how comfortable everyone is with the groove. Tends to happen more often with things that are fast as different people have different ideas on how much to push it.

Re: Has anyone read the book "The Wrecking Crew"?

My understanding is that Carol Kaye hates the term "Wrecking Crew". And that it was largely an invention of Blaine and Tedesco. Does anyone know the back story on this?

Re: Does playing covers change you?

But Larry, there are folks who can have a click and backing tracks going and still play with fire and emotion. It's hard. The folks I know who can do it are the cream of local players. But like...

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

The kids these days who grew up listening to drum machine tracks play tighter than folks back in the day. It's a different thing. But the good folks can groove and play clean and tight. Hard to do...

Re: So how's this for bitter?

I've read about this "technique" but never tried it. I think it comes from some famous rock producer who did it somewhere. Could be an urban legend too. It's supposed to do the cannon thing with a...

Re: I accept defeat.

DD9 has a point on smaller stages where folks are crammed together. Like a corporate gig in a ballroom where you need sound reinforcement but are typically on a comparatively small stage. With the...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

When it's set up in advance and you know what's going on, you can prepare. Bring a spare snare (I usually do anyway) and cymbals you're less worried about. Organize it to be the beginning or end of...

The other thing is that unless I'm doing some rock song that specifically has a continuous roll around the toms, I never do that on my own. I tend to play more broken up or linear. To my ears the...

Re: I accept defeat.

Oh man, there's a whole market out there for GitPorts. Just think of the marketing malarkey you can come up with. And save all the arguments about where the mic goes.

Re: Using a PA

Running everything though a PA "can" reduce your stage volume. And distribute more even sound to the audience in smaller/moderate sized venues. This only works if folks can keep it down. ...
