Re: Who hears the Ghost Notes?

Apparently it takes something really really silly for me to peek out of lurker mode for a second, sorry I'm a terrible terrible poster.

Anyway, Odd-Arne Oseberg, you might want to re-read your...

Re: "Well, that's a Funny Place to Leave Your Stick!"

Nice, with the eggs. I'm sure they're still good, but those sticks need proper cooling!

I do seem to leave sticks everywhere. They'll usually found in the couch cushions, under furniture, in a...

Re: A seemingly overlooked topic

Yo, I actually do spend quite a bit of time thinking about my concept of technique as well as practicing it, as I'm pretty scared of repetitive stress injuries and also want to have as much facility...

Re: Gina S(c)hock Ices and Massages

Since I started playing, I've tried to be very conscious of my technique, because the thought of repetitive stress injuries horrifies me. Also, coming as close as you can to perfect technique expands...

Re: David Letterman Drum Solo Week II

Each solo so far has been an awesome showcase of what can be done on the drums, and the variety of personality that can be expressed. I've been impressed with each one and for different reasons, but...

Re: Miles Davis?

That book's got the craziest stories in it, it was super entertaining as well as informative. Also, talk about using swear words as punctuation. A couple of stories that are especially memorable to...

Re: Great musicianship = Limited access?

Danny Carey and Tool are an example of a band/drummer with great technical ability and complex playing as well as a lot of mainstream success. I think every one of their albums has gone...

Re: The art of getting out of trouble

Yeah, I'm doing this all the time. One way for me to get out of trouble is to play the mistake again (and maybe again as the song calls for it). I think an important part of this is to be able to...

Re: Foot technique issue...

When it comes to bass drum control I like to use Benny Greb's "alphabet" system. Basically it involves playing a simple consistant ostinato with the hands and hihat foot, like 2&4 on snare, 8ths on...

Re: Pirating, us and the future.

Don't mean to troll or incite anything, and I could care less if I get banned, but I'm 'fing curious.

Drummer-ish, do you have a position on this issue? Your posts are very educational, don't get...

Re: Are the Days of the Drum Solo Over?

Wow, this thread has remained relatively civil, even though there is a faint aroma of "feel/technique/jazz/snob thread" about it. Interesting thoughts all around. Personally, I'm not too worried...

Re: grasping the rhythm wrong

Polly's got the right idea. If you haven't, look into Gavin Harrison's polyrhythmic concepts. He has a way of de-jargonizing and also some great ideas, so that even my math-challenged mind can get...

Re: Are the Days of the Drum Solo Over?

I like this statement. I can see where some of the things I've said may come across as "snobby" and attribute that to an inability to properly communicate the idea. I think we may have different...

You're amazing, Polly. Very well put, I wish I was as articulate as you. I guess I'm just grumpy about society. Smiley face emoticon.

Re: Are the Days of the Drum Solo Over?

Polly, I agree with you about mediocre drummers/musicians generally performing a solo because it's the thing to do. In fact I dislike anybody doing anything because it's the thing to do.

Good for them. Personally I love music, and any type of art. Most people could care less, but I could care less about most people.

There's a difference between a drummer with bad technique, or...
