Re: The power of smiling

Don't worry, I know! Nearly tied myself in knots trying to untangle what you said though!

I've been thinking about this smiling lark quite a lot, as you may have gathered. It certainly works for...

Re: The power of smiling

I bet I'm not as clever as I think - but everybody already knew that, didn't they!

Mike, it's my understanding that what we might describe as "reverse cause and effect" is generally accepted by...

Apparently you do: it's a way of tricking your brain. We're not as clever as we think we are!

Re: The power of smiling

The paradox, and one of the main reasons to smile whilst playing, is that smiling, even if you have to make yourself do it, releases wossnames (endorphins?), which create a feeling of euphoria and...

Re: "You're a drummer? Oh can you play..."

No. Everybody knows I don't actually know any songs!

Re: And we fizzled out....

Now those are wise words indeed!

Sorry to hear of your woes, but bands do seem to be like buses. I hope you don't have to wait too long, all the same :)

Re: The power of smiling

Could not agree more. One of the most valuable things I've ever been told has been to smile, because playing music is quite simply a hugely enjoyable thing to do, and that to do it in front of an...

Re: Advice please?

No advice at all, but I'd just like to say good luck and I hope all three try-outs go really well! (Bands really are like buses, aren't they?)

Re: Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

One week, we advertised our jam night as follows: "Come and play songs you've never heard, with people you don't know." It hasn't been going long, maybe 6 months, and it started off pretty slowly,...

Different hair, and a different frock. Not rocket science, dahling!

Re: drum fill friday

Go on, guess how many I got.

If you guessed 1/5, you are an hopeless optimist, bless you!

Re: New Drum Set

Please, if you have any moral fibre (fiber), try not to buy from Amazon. Their fiscal integrity is dubious at best. In any case, buying online, unless from a small individual trader, risks putting...

Re: Adults Learning Drums

No. If that were the case, there would be no such thing as bullying in the workplace, for example. Besides, you're not taking into account the fact that a great many adults question themselves,...

Re: Adults Learning Drums

Re: I can't believe how much I sucke when it comes to soloing.

I'm absolutely certain that you're right. But that doesn't mean that we can't be taught how to be. We feel we can do it; we want to do it; we KNOW we can do it; we just don't know how. Surely that...

Re: Many cymbals yes, but many snares?

I only have two snares, which couldn't be more different from each other. It's easy to decide which one to play.

I don't have a vast collection of cymbals, but in my dreams I can imagine myself...

Re: OCD or normal jacking around?

By drummer standards, I think I'm pretty relaxed. As long as I can get things to sound the way I want - and as long as I can reach them - I generally work around them. Except for my hi hat, which is...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

It's all Mr Madge's fault.

As a child, I was made to take piano lessons, largely (I believe) because my mum considered it a suitable accomplishment for a young lady. I didn't like playing the...

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

I have a feeling this isn't the first, or even the twentieth time I've said it, but I bloody loves you.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I started out playing on a Yamaha Xplorer kit that Mr Madge gave me for Christmas one year, as a surprise. He did his research, and it ticked all the boxes in terms of realism/value for money.

Re: I can't believe how much I sucke when it comes to soloing.

I remember either you or somebody else recommending this in the dim and distant past, and when I tried it, it worked. Then it went completely out of my head. Thanks for suggesting it again!
