Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Not necessarily, Rage Against the Machine made pretty good use of repetition that works.

Re: Survey for a school assessment

I answered, but note that my answers pretty much amount to "the same" because there's almost a wider difference among B20 cymbals themselves, than the difference between B8 and B20. An A (B20)...

NARD Snare Book - Interpretation Help

Hey all, I just got the old school NARD snare book. Since I've been apartment living for a few months now and away from my drumset, I've been really working at the pad and figured this would be fun...

Re: 2018 DCI thoughts

What I find interesting is on this forum I read a lot about people not liking Kevlar heads (which is fair) but talking about it like its some new development, and people keep bringing it up like its...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Yeah there is. Ignore the note-for-note, and you can do all sorts of things with cover bands. I lead a rockified Lady Gaga tribute group where we play all her songs with sweeping guitar solos and...

Re: Jazz Drummer v Metal Drummer

It really started with ...And Justice For All. Not the sample replacement, but the tone. That super clicky bass drum was pretty much invented for that album, and its seen heavy use since. The mid...

Re: Jazz Drummer v Metal Drummer

I mean, both better than me, but that jazz guy won the show. He had insane chops.

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Re: Keeping Things Light

Kinda on subject, but I had a gig the other night. My setup takes 3 trips to transport by hand (play a Sonor Bop for reference, everything in cases). One of the trips back to my apartment, I was...

Re: The thing you bought but you never use

I bought a gong, not expecting to actually use it at all but just because I wanted a freaking gong to be behind me while I practice.

Funnily enough, I have used it on recordings I made in my home...

Re: Rack Toms Angled or Flat

There is no need to have...

Re: 300 BPM? Really guys?

*NEW* fad? Have you not been a drummer for the past 70 years? Playing fast has *always* been a fad.

Re: Last time you referred to drumming as "playing the skins"?

I say it in jest once in awhile, but aside from seeing it in movies and such, never in real life.

Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

Think that's a very fair analysis of early 60s drumming....hell even for a lot of eras its pretty accurate.

Re: deleted social media

aren't we all political ideolgues though?

Its pretty easy not to make Facebook money. Just don't click on ads or sponsored posts. Get a plugin like Social Fixer that removes all that crap.

Re: Your plans for 2018 with drums?

Gig at least once per month is my New Year's resolution.

I missed out on January (too soon too book a gig anyway) but I am playing an 8 night musical in February that will make up for it. I'm...

Re: Do people buy DW kits just for the badge

I'm not big on DW, but recognize they are good quality sets. I hate their lugs though.

With that being said, I do think you can get similar quality for cheaper from the other big manufacturers,...
