Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

I think jornthedrummer has the right approach.

This forum is interesting because it has such a cross-section of players, from guys just starting out to guys who drum for a living. And that means...

Re: Congratulations Jules

Some roasting this turns out to be when the fiercest comments come from The Man his-self.

Re: The worst gig of my life

Those of you who have been saying all guitars are the same may want to consider some of the ways in which 6 string guitars differ:

Differences in feel:

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

Q for those who feel that their setup must be just so...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I have spectacularly limited gigging experience.

To the extent that I can count my drumming gigs on one hand, and still not feel the need to be cautious when using a power saw.

And one of those...

Re: Preparing for an audition

Remember that every band audition is a two way audition: Sounds like the band failed to be hired by you as much as you by them.

Re: Just starting at 53 and will need all the help I can get!

Here's 2 rival suggestions for your first cymbals:

1. Buy cheap second hand round objects. They will cost peanuts and you can recoup your peanuts when you sell them.

I'd be heading even further down the food...
