Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

I can't speak for the collective, but I always try to bear in mind that "typing on the Internet" isn't my first language and a lot can get lost in translation. I got what part of the video you were...

Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

I donít think a click track or some level of quantisation is a necessarily bad thing. I just think my idea of perfect is less than perfect. Iím not sure that Iíd fare that well in a test of ďthis was...

Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

It was surprising to me to see the tracks analysed. As an average listener, I never put on Roxanne and thought ďmy god, this is all over the place!Ē
Similarly, I donít listen to modern music and...

Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

I agree. I donít even think digital manipulation is a bad thing - it offers so many creative opportunities. But itís too easy and clearly overdone in modern recordings. By comparison, splicing tape...

Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

Sorry, posted prematurely - was going to say that Iíve recently been revisiting a whole bunch of bands from the 90s that I wasnít into first time around. And I think this is part of the phenomenon. I...

Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

Iím a fan of Rick Beatoís YouTube videos and I thought this one was pretty insightful:

How computers ruined rock music (https://youtu.be/AFaRIW-wZlw)

Re: Heel bouncing on the hi-hat pedal

Not sure about bouncing for the sake of timing, but itís great when a drummer adds another layer of sound with a left-foot rhythm on the high hat. Jimmy Chamberlin from the Smashing Pumpkins is one...

Re: Camera to Record Some Drumming Things for Youtube

Iím no expert, but in the right light most smartphones can record perfectly good video footage at 1080p... I think the problem is that the audio sucks. Especially for the dynamics of a drum kit.

Re: The Art of Drumming - TV Show

Re: Does drumming get easier?

I think I’ve read your question differently from everyone else here. You seem to be wanting to know if you’ll find it easier to work out new stuff as you gain experience. For me, the answer is yes.

Re: How do you practice?

Iím not sure I understand - are you asking how you should use your drum practice time or how you should spend your time practicing across all three instruments? Because I think the answers may be...

Re: If you could educate the public about one thing concerning drumming/percussion, what would it be

I like this and totally agree. My boyís ability to pick up the guitar, bass and keyboards definitely stems from his drumming. Iíve seen him overtake more experienced guitar students of the same age...

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

Hmmm, I’m not sure it’s stubbornness from the venues. Pretty much every venue ever is run as a business - they book the bands that bring in the money. If bands bring in audiences (and bar spend),...

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

This is the point, I think. Venues put on events for audiences, not for musicians. While there are still young people learning instruments with a desire to make music, younger audiences are in...

Re: When is a good time to quit a band?

No, it doesnít. Not a helpful comment.


Disagree. R_M suggested that these guys are inexperienced. Maybe they just need clearer guidance and set expectations based on agreed goals.

Re: When is a good time to quit a band?

R_M, I think you need to be clearer as a band about what youíre trying to achieve in these sessions. Is it a jam, is it practice, or is it rehearsal? I donít think Iíd expect a guitarist to be...

Re: Blast-Beat...the origins

It’s a good film. Rocky is a good film. Neither gives an accurate depiction of the subject matter, but very few films do. The boxing/drumming is only there to carry the story/drama.

But yeah,...

Re: Theory: Nobody wants anything new

I can answer that one - because itís great. Haters gonna hate, but I have a Les Paul Studio with the robot and I love it. ďYou canít tune your own guitar?Ē Of course I can, but the simplicity of...

Re: Entry level kit for home practice

The Aquarian Super Pads seem to be hard to come by. In the UK, I can only find one retailer and it’s charging £100 for a 14” pad.

My boy practices on a Rhythm Traveller, Pearl Mesh heads and...

Re: Is this a Trick throw off or Dunnett roto?

Thanks Tommy and sonormapex.

Iíve spoken to the store and the only option they will offer is to return the drum for a refund. So Iím going to do that.

Itís not that the R7 is a bad throw off,...

Re: Is this a Trick throw off or Dunnett roto?

Re: Upcoming gig

In your situation, song choice should be led by the singer.

If the singer can sell the song, 90% of the audience wonít care what the guitars, bass or drums are playing as long as itís in tune and...
