Re: Vinnie Colaiuta clinic Q&A

I deeply admire and respect his talent and recognize his "greatness" - However his playing just doesn't do anything for me. I don't get excited, I don't tap my foot, it doesn't make me want to run...

Re: How do you guys learn songs?

I just naturally feel the rhythm of the song and the beat, listen to the flow of the lyrics and play with that. I don't have the patience to really learn a song to the point I can play it without the...

Re: 32 Flavors Help

Awesome - Thanks for the help! Guess I just have a crappy .mp3 of the song 'cause I can't hear anything clearly. Much appreciated.

Re: How often do you drop your sticks?

This week - about 20 times in one afternoon. For some reason the distance to my high-hat felt longer and as a play with a loose grip, couldn't hang on to my right stick. Started really pissing me...

32 Flavors Help

Hey everyone, hope I can post this here.

I'm really intrigued by the drums in "32 Flavors" by Alana Davis and trying to learn it - Not having much luck by simply listening for whatever reason....

Re: About to start teaching drums, please give me tips

From my own experience:

1) If a student (any age) happens to mention he is a huge Buddy Rich fan, don't tell him "You'll never by able to play like Buddy or Vinnie!". Sure, maybe everyone on this...

Re: Depressed about my talent

I think someone is either born with natural creativity or they aren't. One can learn to be more creative maybe by studying different styles of music and learning different techniques. Some people are...

Re: Drum shoes

Heck Yeah! I don't think I could play in shoes now - Am I really the only one who likes playing barefoot?

Re: Drum kit components that beginners waste their money on...

Two years ago I decided to finally buy a drum kit and learn how to play - My life long dream. Bought a decent Pearl kit and slowly upgraded the failing/cheap/broken stuff.

First purchase was a DW...

Re: Drum Solos and why you like them, or not

I like Neil's drum solos - They aren't just a guy showing off for the hell of it - They are compositional in nature, melodic and interesting to listen to. I do enjoy drum solos for a short period of...

Re: Getting better after short break periods?

Wow, I couldn't agree more. I work from home so I can squeeze in 2 hours of playing every day while my wife is at work. I'll go like this for a month or two and then find I can't play anymore. For...

Re: The first song you learned to play

Owner of a Lonely Heart - YES

Remember vividly hearing this song as a youngster when it first came out - Still love it and proud to say it's the first song I can actually play. I'm working on...

Re: Shell Pack Advice

Thanks for the advice everyone, on narrowing down my options. I'm going to go check out a few Mapex kits today. I was leaning towards either the HZB or Meridian and this helps. Yeah I could afford a...

Re: Shell Pack Advice

Well I just got a $20 per hour raise so maybe I can expand my price range. She puts up with my buying cars every few months so I'm trying not to push my luck. :)

Re: Shell Pack Advice

Thanks for the clarification on maple. Not an expert here so I wondered if there was truth to that. I want a kit that booms like thunder, a snare that cracks like lightning and is warm like a summer...

Re: Shell Pack Advice

I'm playing a pretty low level Pearl kit I bought used for $600. Anything lower than a Forum?? The shells are covered with "made in China" stickers and the Pearl badges are peeling off the shells and...

Re: Better With Music?

Thanks, great answers! Got irritated with my playing tonight and put the 1812 Overture on and played with that. Different.

Better With Music?

Ok, I have a possibly stupid and silly question which will no doubt show my lack of playing prowess and experience. Do those of you learning to play and who haven't been playing for very long find...
