Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

Sometimes it is*. In contrast, it is always unethical to demand to gain from someone else's labor without appropriate compensation.

Look, this action from the NFL doesn't surprise me in the...

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

And that, Larry, is why you shall never be a very rich man.

Years ago a friend had a name for groups that would travel great distances to play in lousy venues for no money in order to "get...

Re: Tuning toms to octaves

This does not apply to a vibrating membrane. An ordinary drum does not exhibit a nice harmonic (i.e., integer) sequence. Drums are indefinitely pitched instruments with an inharmonic overtone...

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

Don't underestimate the power of your own brain! Also, in no way was I trying to saying anything bad about you, just the author of the original article.




I'm not sure what any of that means...

Re: Practice routine while on vacation?

To be honest, when I go on vacation, I go on vacation. I don't obsess over my drums. Sometimes you just need a mental break.

Now if I was going to be away for a month or more, then I'd bring some...

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

From the article:
Harvard (http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2012/07/when-the-beat-goes-off/) smarty-pants discovered that a drummer’s internal clock doesn’t move linearly like a real clock,...

Re: Why did Wy get banned?

Maybe. His last post just said "Screw it. My opinion is worthless.". Apparently, he wrote something, erased it all and then left those six words. When I read it, my immediate reaction was "This puppy...

Re: Drum capo?

I think what you want are Roto-toms with shells. I recall Pearl made these back in the 70s and called them Vari-Pitch toms. Rather bulky and I assume a rare find these days.

If something is added...

Re: Professional responsibility

Spot on. Staying abreast of current developments is part of being a professional. How professional is a doctor if they never pick up any of the literature once they get out of med school? Heck, many...

Re: Open handed technique

My experience does not support this assertion. I don't think the human brain is wired quite that way. It seems that there is some transference from left to right and vice versa. Being right handed, I...

Re: I'm a German auto maker...

Years ago I remember learning a dotted eighth note/sixteenth/eighth as "Timberland" (the natural tendency to hang onto the first syllable to stretch the timing).

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I am not a fan of badges of any kind. I don't mind a discrete logo somewhere (I'm thinking of the small stamped logos on my A Zildjian HH and ride back in the 70s), but this trend of large inked...

Re: Found some ancient recordings!

What's that old saying? Something like:

I'm not who I want to be, I'm not who I'm going to be, but thankfully I'm not who I was.

Re: Open handed technique

It may well be that the argument here is really a non-starter. I see two paths:

1. A traditional kit layout played with traditional grip in a traditional manner.

2. A symmetrical kit layout...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

A few years back I had a student named Kale. He was neither green nor leafy. Perfectly pleasant, too. Our high school had a teacher named Mr. Broccoli. And when I was a little kid back in church, I...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

I'm going to guess he was on anti-coagulents (blood thinners) because vitamin K is involved in coagulation and can reverse the effect of warfarin (Coumadin). My father had heart issues and was on...

That is most impressive and I am honored at your efforts (not to mention that you apparently know Italian). I will use this, but not for my avatar. The pupster has been with me for nearly 25 years,...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

I never wear a tie and my teeth are better looking. I like the lab coat though. Anything else is purely coincidental.

Now what's all this about me being a fancy swimmer in Guatemala?

Re: Science finally proves drummers have different brains than the rest of the band

I am always skeptical of pop psychology studies like this. I am imagine that we could prove that the brains of saxophonists or pianists are different, too. Few people are going to poo-poo a study...

Ha! The whole thing is a ruse. In reality I'm a 13 y.o. Guatemalan girl who plays the zither.

Curses! You tricked me! How do I delete a comment??

The problem, GRUNTER, is that you are not an engineering professor (no need for the extraneous caps), consequently you really can't "Jim a post". I can Jim a post because I am an engineering...

Re: Transferring acoustic kit to electronic, help needed with the module.

I have a 7 and a 20 as well. Can't say I ever thought any of the sounds were the same. Maybe it's just all of the editing on the 20 that makes them sound different (the 20 expansion was a big change...

Re: Open handed technique

I agree. I think one issue here is that open handed does not necessarily mean symmetrical layout. I've been playing sym kits for years now and there are a few different ways to approach it. My...
