Re: Help Keeping Guitarists In Time & My first practice experience

Normally I would agree, but in my area, it seems finding other like-minded musicians is a difficult task. I have continuously posted on craigslist and searched the forums for people. As it is,...

Re: Rehearsal Space???

Yeah, I have an e-kit that I use the majority of time, but it's nice to make some noise on my acoustic kit now and again. I usually only play it with brushes (or hot sticks) after 5pm, but no later...

Re: Rehearsal Space???

The storage units in my area for a size needed to hold my kit and 3 rigs along with the 5 bandmembers & climate controlled cost around $200/month.

Re: Rehearsal Space???

Yeah - I was looking more for creative suggestions than specific details. Perhaps there are other drummers who had the same problem in their area.
Thanks though..

Rehearsal Space?

I am finding it very difficult to nail down a regular rehearsal space for my band. None of us have garages or basements we can use, so we are looking to find something (preferably at little to no...

Re: When your significant other DISAPPROVES of Drumming

I think everyone posting now is not reading through the replies. The point that was lost in all this was - when I made my initial post, we hadnt talked about it and it turned out that it was LESS...

Re: How many other Drummers do you hang around

Yeah, I'm definitely old enough, but being the family man I don't exactly have the time, the money or the local venues to go out and do this. I'm not exactly located in a music mecca.

That's one...

How many other Drummers do you hang around

Outside of this forum, do you associate with any other drummers? Do you get together with other drummer buddies and talk shop and share ideas? Have you ever had a mentor?

The reason I ask this...

Re: When your significant other DISAPPROVES of Drumming

It seemed like a logical question to ask & where better than to a bunch of strangers that don't know me from Ringo. I figured there may be others who's significant others also disapprove, so I might...

Re: When your significant other DISAPPROVES of Drumming

I think most of it is - when I make decision to do something, I do it. I'm an independent person and although I have full disclosure with her, I usually talk about it AFTER it's been done. I can...

Re: When your significant other DISAPPROVES of Drumming

No, she doesnt. She has a 7-yr old that is her #1 priority (even above me, which I understand).

When your significant other DISAPPROVES of Drumming

Ok, I've got a problem. I was just informed by my fiance that she disapproves of me actively seeking a band to play with. I recently found a few guys on craigslist that seem to be along my level...

Re: How To: Transcribe Song For Drums - i.e. Learn To Play Covers

That's REALLY cool! I downloaded it and put it on karaoke mode (to take out the vocals) - I can really hear the beat now! I will definitely pay the $50 when my 30-day trial is up.

Thanks!

Re: First gig anxiety..

Don't worry so much about how the audience will picture you. They won't care so much about the color of your skin/size as much as whether the music is rockin'. Besides, you get to 'hide' in the...
