Re: Aspects of drumming (and music making)

Any thought along the lines of fostering and nurturing a joy of playing and the love of music?

It sounds like your "three basic aspects of drumming" are all geared towards improving specific...

Re: What do YOU think makes a good drummer?

A D E E P pocket.

The ability to create a pulse that lets the other musicians and the audience feel comfortable and settled in the groove, whether it's soft or slammin'!

Re: REPOST of issue in SNARE DRUM HELP (difference in drum sounds)

Yes, that's an important part of being a musician; you can't earn a living playing music if people don't appreciate it. Everyone from Twisted Sister to Barbra Streisand tries to do the best show they...

Re: Twenty years ago

Hey Jay, that's a big, trashy, punk-a$$ noise you got goin' on back then.

Re: what motivates you to keep playing???

The answer, as always, is...

MORE COWBELL! ;-)

But seriously, I recommend that you consider splurging on buying a sweet new drum kit to lust after and stare at.

Re: Would YOU be a musician if nobody ever heard you ?

At this stage I really don't feel a need to "perform" for anyone or receive applause or validation from an audience. I just like the music.

But when I was young it meant a lot to me to be heard...

Re: Is this cheating?

Yes mrchatter, that's cheating.

But, as the drummer, it's forgivable.

However, if you were merely the guitar player, or bass, or keys, or whatever, it would not be :-P

Jay, are we talkin' "Deliverance" southern? If so, be careful man. Those folks have a short fuse and strange ways!

Awesome! It's so great of you to take the time and make the effort to share drumming with all of the folks who came out.

How do you prepare for doing a clinic? Do you do an outline of material you...

Re: Do you ever get discouraged?

It seems to me that, sometimes, we drummers get hung-up on the the concept of "as good as." What does that mean? Faster? More chops? More creative? Fewer mistakes? Blows better bubble-gum...

Re: Do you ever get discouraged?

Do I ever get discouraged that I'm not able to play as well as I'd like, or as well as others? Sure, now and then... but I most definitely don't dwell on it. I'm really grateful I can play!

Re: I sacrificed creativity for technical ability

Nope. You can focus on what you're good at, and build-up from there.

Re: Motivation/Inspiration during hard working periods/bad days

Exactly correct advice from Jay.

Make a conscious decision to practice playing relaxed, so that when you're in the studio you're accustomed to being and playing relaxed behind the drums. Don't...

Re: Ride Pattern Question

What kind of music?

If jazz, I suppose I'd go for the nightly improv that blade123 suggests.

If hip-hop or rap, I'd...
