Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

I vote for Bill as well. He's already set-up to record drums and can play anything. Trust me, $200/track is a deal.

Hmmm, make it $250... he owes me a steak! :)

Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

That may have been true in the recent past, but it's super-simple to produce great-sounding recordings without a studio, and with a few mouse clicks, offer the digital tracks for sale with any number...

Re: Cruise/Casino Audition

Playing ability is obviously important, but it's you that must make the best impression.

Shave, bathe, and dress in nice casual clothes - no jeans & t-shirt. Be friendly, and keep a smile on your...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

Thanks, and depending what you hear, and what you're playing, it can be very enjoyable!

Suppose you have percussion tracks or loops, let's say congas, shaker, and tambourine, playing some driving,...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

Basically, perspective is important when approaching a click. As I mentioned, attempts to hear a nice mix and follow a click don't always work, unless you're really expert at hearing several musical...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

I'd say it's always easier! The reality is, there are a lot of situations where a track is necessary in order to sound better using standard instrumentation. There are also genres where a click is...

Re: Nickel plating an acrolite?

Getting plating to stick to aluminum has always been iffy. Oh, it looks terrific at first, but without special care, pits and flakes readily develop.

It sounds like a lovely, shiny drum, I'd...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

And therein lies the primary discipline of playing with a click in a band: you do what you need to do to more easily stay on the click. You can devote your focus to the click within an overall mix,...

Re: First use of a click

If that's true, then Paul has a pretty amazing foot! It's able to alternate high and low taps throughout the song, staying straight even through odd time changes!

But if Wikipedia is to be...

Re: Daniel Liljekvist leaves Katatonia to "get a normal job that gets the bills payed"

I feel bad when someone needs to sacrifice something they love for the priorities of life. While it doesn't always work out, there is usually a good balance between music and real life...

Re: First use of a click

I have a great sledgehammer (effected icebell) sample, but somehow I think 8ths of that pounding in my ears would not be a good thing. :)

Re: First use of a click

Those are temple blocks (to represent horse hooves) and most likely played, and therefore not a click. It's a safe bet that the orchestra was conducted though, so there was a timekeeper besides the...

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

It's because Dave cares. That's an important and easilty detectable trait for anyone to have.

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

It's not an obligation on the drummer's part, but it's a nice thing to do if possible, rather than tell the band "you're on your own." Remember, nice guys finish first (in this business.)

If I'm...

Re: First use of a click

As mentioned, that was indeed a clave. But, that brought to mind a song I hadn't considered before... "Blackbird" by the Beatles (1968) has a metronome clicking away through the whole song! Hard to...

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

Like choosing cymbals, you've got to hear what they sound like!

I've chosen subs a few times on local gigs, but only after I've heard what they can do. It doesn't have to be in person, a YouTube...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

Correct on both, Frog.



Depending what I'm doing, I do like panning certain things more to the right (my stronger ear) or left. When everything is in the center, it all competes for its space...

Re: First use of a click

That Ringo loop is a well-documented fact. Besides, if you listen to just 6 or 8 bars, you can hear the repeating inflections that even Ringo couldn't keep up for a whole song.

Re: First use of a click

A click - or track - has become the term used to describe something that regulates a performance, but a metronome provides tempo for practice purposes (or in non-conducted recordings, a metronome...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

As I said, everyone's situation will vary. I suppose I should add that everyone's comfort level varies as well. Ideally, the drummer should get exactly what he wants or needs in order to work with...

Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

Always after completing the work, yes. By "up front" I meant as opposed to part of the payment being held contingent upon the product's or its sales.

Suppose tracks are recorded, the musicians are...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

They still offer the mounting plate, but we're on our own for the 1781 holder. In good shape they fetch $75 on ebay.
