Re: WHAT COVER SONGS SHOULD I LEARN?

Get out to the venues with local live cover bands and listen to what they are covering. One of those bands might be your next band.

Re: Fast Shuffle Technique

I thought some folks here might be interested in my variation on this.
Instead of a shuffle alternating hi hat and snare, this has an accented 6 stroke roll on the hi hat.

Re: My Half Time Shuffle

Was wondering if anyone has tried this and/or is actively working on it.

Again - my pleasures are simple I guess. :) I am really enjoying this.
I haven't felt like I worked on something like...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

The dealer I bought my kit from says he Can order individual drums.
He is checking with Pearl on pricing and availability.
If I get more info, I will post here.

If this comes through, and it is...

Re: Drum Sticks for New Students

I wouldn't cut an existing stick.

I think most 15" sticks will be fine.

Re: Am I the ONLY guy that likes the sound of poplar drums?

I'm currently playing one of the lower end kits on the market - a poplar based Pearl Roadshow Jazz kit. Couldn't love it any more than I already do.

There are so many variables in tuning up a...

Re: Favorite floor tom size and why?

I like the tighter tone of shallow shells.

My current floor tom is 14x10. For me - perfect.

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

Enjoy.

Were you able to find the minus-cymbal configuration? There is a config with cymbals for 379 and, in limited places, a minus cymbal config for 329.

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

And, I think my snare sounds great.

My only minus was that my tom mount came slightly stripped where it didn't tighten down completely. The tom wouldn't slip away when I played, but the nut/key...

Re: Pearl Roadshow Jazz Kit

I can't vouch for longevity yet. But, I have no reason to believe this kit is going to be anything less than an awesome success.

I love the kit. I love the way it sounds and the way it looks. I...

Re: The kind of night that makes you wonder why you even bother

Sounds like your band needs to book gigs where there aren't 4 other bands playing the same night.

Purdie is a gem. I really blew it. He came to town for a clinic recently, and I missed it.

Re: My Half Time Shuffle

I changed the sticking of the last two triplets of the end of the Rosanna Chorus pattern.
Makes more sense to use RLL for the last two triplets.

I guess I am pleased easily. :) I just really...

Re: Too Old To Play???

That is a great point. With the exception of vocalists, I think all other musicians have the capability of continuing to improve - even into old age.

Re: Too Old To Play???

Get that Too Old stuff out of your brain.
