Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

One can get locked into extremes. For example, because of my strange equipment path, I can do lots of weird things on the hihat. So to Finns point, I "explored" my hihat in many ways because I was...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Cool pic.

What's that thing I see next to the big gong? Is that a kitchen sink? If so, I suppose it's a play on the cliche, "everything but the kitchen sink" ?

But Shawn Pelton still...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

That's funny... I evolved the opposite way. My first "kit" was just a hi-hat stand. Seriously! Not even a snare or a bass drum. I was living in an apartment at the time and the hihat was the only...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Context? Maybe yes, maybe no. Don't think in discrete steps; think in a continuum:

Don't think in context of "drumming" ---> think in context of "percussion" ...
Don't think in context of...

Re: THE BIG KITS VS SMALL KITS DEBATE

Hey, no need for anyone to feel guilty.

A "big kit" is anything larger than bare hands slapping rhythms on kneecaps. Some of the rap performers on New York City streets will outgun most guys with...

Re: Maple vs. Birch advice

In the big picture, maple vs birch is not going very noticeable compared to which heads you use (1-ply vs 2-ply) or whether you use nylon tip sticks vs nude ones. Of course tuning will affect the...

Re: Thomas Lang

This point-of-view gets into the big-kit/small-kit discussion...

Some drummers approach the kit as a complex polyphonic instrument. They instinctively think of the drumset as a xylophone. This...

Re: Thomas Lang

Vienna Conservatory. You have to audition to get in. (Sorta like auditiong for Berklee College of Music or Juilliard Music School.) It helps being in a focused environment during the critical...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Sounds like wise observations. Lot's of Gershwin's was not critically well received when it first premiered but considered classics now. I'm sure the Beatles music will become more revered after...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

This response is to nobody in particular.

But not sure how anyone can say things were fine when DB has said he's had to 1) lock this thread more than once 2) ban several members.

If that's an...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

jazzgregg, I'm going to converse with you in this post with no sarcasm (sillyness as you'd call it).

Here we have one of the key disputes in this entire thread:

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I do want to point out that we all have a unique style of communication. You often sprinkle your paragraphs with "DO YOU UNDERSTAND?"

This can be construed as condescending. Although it didn't...

Guilty as charged! It is not my intention to make you angry. It is my intention to make you and everyone think. My natural way of doing that is to use sarcasm. A lot of it.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

We perceive the world so differently that your sentence is one of the most bizarre I’ve ever seen.

I couldn’t instantly comprehend it because the very first thought that came to my mind was this: ...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Yes, I’ve seen that statement. I just simply do not agree with it.

TheGuessWho complaint is not unique to jazz or even to music in general. It’s pretty common across all hobbies and interests. ...

My posts get deleted all the time. Too much profanity gets me in trouble usually. But I don't know exactly why yours got deleted.

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

That's an interesting approach. Although I can see one way this might go. I'm reminded of Google's "pagerank" algorithm and the websites and businesses complaining and filing lawsuits because their...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I can't totally agree with this. Your statement makes it seem like "sponsorship money" is some non-emotional impartial robot that knows jazz vs non-jazz. "Sponsorship money" is run by a human being...

Re: THE "BIG" JAZZ THREAD

I don't think anyone in is arguing that it's widely mislabeled (at least in the last 50 messages I saw).

I'm just saying it doesn't really matter.



Interesting observation. But again, it...
