Re: Is it still 4 way coordination if I....

Re: Is it still 4 way coordination if I....

It's still 4 way coordination. Things still have to coordinate with each other to hit at the same time.

Re: Ghost Drummer for Kiss, Jimi, Alice Cooper etc

I'm not surprised to hear about the Hendrix stuff. I was never into most of the posthumously released stuff. I thought most of it should have stayed unreleased. Hal spoke of everyone's sloppy playing...

Re: Better than the original??.....Noooooo!!!!!!

I Agree that most of the more recognized covers are generally better... But I have tried to decide which version of "a change is gonna come" is more amazing and it's a draw every time. Sam's is just...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

that is odd. you'll have to rely on the close mics to provide a sense of stereo image. and just roll with a mono OH. that sucks man. you should really ask what the engineer had in mind with that...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

you should definitely just ask the engineer what's up. phrased politely of course. it's not out of the ordinary for a mix engineer to ask the recording engineer about tracking the session.

Re: Easiest Slayer Songs

Seasons in the Abyss is a good album to start with. Blood Red and Skeletons of Society (which were previously mentioned) are both on that album. Bloodline is a good song to get started with too. It's...

Re: Your favourite drum fills of all time, EVER!

there are so many good ones. but my all time favorite has to be Mitch Mitchell's fill into the solo of Hey Joe. It sets the solo up so well. It was just the most awesome thing at just the right time.
