Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

You know, I stopped using nylon tips about twenty years ago, mostly because the tips always flew off. Wood tips also seemed a little more forgiving with my shoddy technique.

A short time ago I was...

Re: Wrist pain

Whenever I get a sore wrist, or knee, or any kind of ailment pertaining to muscles or tendons, I play through it.

I used to take rests with these kind of things, but I reasoned that the source of...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

I don't get it.

Isn't this just basic economics? Surplus drives down value. There are more bands than there are slots for bands. Period.

We can try to put an absolute value on adding live...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

Does forgetting stuff AT the gig count for this thread?...I'm not proud of this one.

Just two weeks ago I played a gig, and in the course of packing up my stuff I was talking to this drunk girl...

Re: Toms on the Backbeat

Stole? I looked at it as a 'tribute'. (Better not say anymore about that or this could turn into another 'Blurred Lines' thread...)

But I've long been a fan of Steven Wright, and appreciate your...

Re: Other songs that sound like other songs

As far as I know, Sting and the Police never took action against Stevie Nicks for ripping off 'Bring on the Night' with 'Edge of Seventeen'. Not sure why; it's basically a note-for-note cover of the...

Re: Blurred lines ripped off the "feel"

Strange...I didn't realize I was in such an decided minority.

First time I heard 'Blurred Lines', I was at work, and a co-worker mentioned how she liked the song. I immediately recognized the...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

Just sounded like some damn good drumming to me.

Live context is always a little more, well, 'lively'. You were right there with the rest of the band - that's all that really matters.

And the...

Re: Ever shown up to play with a new musician and realized it was a bad fit immediately?

I absolutely love these war stories. Keep 'em coming, everyone! I can relate to so many of these tales...

Truth to tell, they entertain me a lot more than the technique and gear threads. (Probably...

Re: How many of you are playing for tips?

This. I've always just figured that if enough people are coming out to see you play, the money's going to come - that's how it's always worked for me. If you can't draw, I don't see why there should...

Re: It Happened Again!!

Exactly this! I remember an early studio experience I had - when I brought home the initial recording roughs, I was so disappointed that I didn't sound like Copeland or Cameron or Mac Macneilly, and...

Re: do i need a hi hat mic?

Wow, that's exactly the setup I used when I recorded an album with my old band - we did it ourselves on an old Tascam. We scored a few good mikes, but not many, so we had to be judicious. After some...

Re: Drummer Terry Williams playing with Dire Straits - nice drumming!

Here's a pretty comprehensive explanation from the co-producer that I hadn't seen before:

Re: Letting go vs focusing

Tell him/her/them to fuck off. Find other people to play with. And get back behind the kit.

Don't get me wrong...there were times when I questioned whether or not I wanted to keep drumming; I...

Re: Drummer Terry Williams playing with Dire Straits - nice drumming!

Love Terry Williams' drumming - I saw the 'Brothers in Arms' tour with him playing, and he was a powerhouse.

Having said that...I still prefer Pick Withers' original drumming on this song. It's so...

Re: Neil Peart

I'm not a real big Rush fan - when the songs come on the radio I don't change the station, but I don't have any Rush albums in my collection. (There may be a cassette of 'Moving Pictures' around here...

Re: Jason Bonham: The Last Time I Remember My Father Showing Me Anything

Say it again!

Absolutely agree. Abacab, too, has some excellent drumming on it. Bonham knew a great drummer when he saw one.

Re: Letting go vs focusing

How long have you been playing? I think that the longer you play - the more experience you have - the closer those two frames of mind come to merging. I remember very well feeling almost exactly as...

Re: Another *&^%$# Bar Owner

Nah. It's just called supply and demand. Why should a club owner pay a band anything unless their product makes them money? Nobody starts a club without the prime motivation being profit. And paying...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

That's part of the reason that 'Abacab' is the latest I can go in the Genesis catalog. On that album, you can hear the beginnings of the slick 80's sound you describe, but the drums still sound like...
