Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Be warned. The guy from the hahahaha thread was a seasoned drummer who took an e-kit gig for the first time.

Re: Another Frustrated Drummer....

I've played with people who want the drums a certain way but can't speak in musical terms or even sing the beat they're thinking of. At that point I stop caring and do what I want. If this dude can't...

Re: Good Snares for Metal?

Any snare can work if you tune it the right way.

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Impeccable musicality, dynamics, and feel. 5 out of 5 stars.

That church has some good gear. You'd think they could hire a real drummer.

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

I'm not suggesting that one should be entirely self taught.

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

I think that provided the right tools, anyone can become their own best teacher. I've only taken about six months worth of lessons in 20 years of playing. I learned proper technique and how to read....

Re: Applications for 13" tom

I had a 12-13-16 kit once and I hated the 13 as well until I realized that if I tuned it first so that it would sound good by itself, the 12 would still sound pretty good when tuned higher in order...

Re: PDP X7 drumset

Slapping them with your hands hurts. Use sticks.

Re: Tempo comfort zones

Personally if someone starts off a song at the wrong tempo I will fix it. You gotta think about the flow of the vocals. I was at a church gig once when the acoustic guitarist started off a mid tempo...

Buddy Rich didn't teach people, he schooled them.

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

Around here a tribute band only covers one act, and they usually go all out in attempt to look just like the original band as well. 'Copy band' sounds horrible.

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

You know the part that everyone seems to recognize? The first eight bars of Come Out and Play by the Offspring.

I applaud your laziness, sir. Do you perchance have a fondness for white Russians?

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

I did check out those threads. I'm glad someone does the cartman method. When I start playing in a band again, I'll likely do the same more often than I used to.

Re: THE AMBIDEXTROUS THREAD

I've done the same thing for identical reasons. That was after I had been playing double bass for a while and I thought at the time that I had a decent left foot. Isolating it showed me differently.

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

Pretty much. If you have loud enough speakers and jam to a song the attention span increases dramatically. This is why I don't do drum solos. I bore even myself.

Re: 9X13 floor tom? Sensible?

I've got a 14x10 on one of my kits and the legs are barely long enough to get to the right height. Are you short? Sit low?

Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

If you play in a cover or tribute band, how much effort do you put into playing accurate parts?

Do you diligently transcribe everything and play it note for note down to ghost notes?

Do you...

Re: Can I keep my toms low on a 22" kick?

It's all relative. I say yes, but I'm 6'1". Also, I don't like Cobus's playing. You're welcome for the non-help. :)
