Are R16 Instructions for Rocket Scientists?

Ok, I am not an idiot but I can't, for the life of me, figure out the R16 instruction manual to do what I want do. I have googled until my fingers bled and no luck. I have a bunch of drumless MP3's...

Guy I know stores all his gear in a Rubbermaid mini-shed outside all year. We're in southern Ontario where it gets nasty humid in summer and has been -20 Celsius or colder for much of the winter. So...

Re: Adults Learning Drums

I "played" drums for a few years when I was 15. Hated lessons. Hated Stick Control. HATED the practice pad. Just wanted to sit behind a drum kit and play. Didn't understand the need for fundamentals....

Re: Mapex saturn IV or BP black widow kit

I have the Blaster and love it. A bit more punch than the Satun IMO. It was between these two in the store and I just preferred the sound of the Blaster though you can't lose either way. Both great...

Re: Drumset with a +- 2000 Budget

I just got the Black Panther Blaster set and couldn't be happier. Wanted a 22" kick and two up/two down setup. It was between this and a Saturn IV five piece which was cheaper due to only one floor...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

And just when you think Fletcher is a complete asshole for his final stunt you are left wondering if the whole scam was all part of his plan to motivate the kid to rise to the top.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Re: Charlie Watts: Drum Mentor

The fact that Watts doesn't have a phone or use e-mail makes me want him as a mentor.

Re: What makes music classic, timeless?

I think there is more to this than just the shape of the music industry. I also think that Baby Boomers are the first generation that held onto their youth more than generations previous. This could...

Re: Signs you're getting better at the drums

But could you have written those parts. I'm finding I can copy more drum parts but can I come with them? That is what I'm working on. Think Steve Gadd Fifty Ways groove- easily copied but would you...

Chad vs Will

Anyone watch the Chad Smith/Will Ferrell drum off on Jimmy Fallon? Kind of funny. At least it showcased some drumming.

Re: Starting Over After Twenty Years

Re: I just met Jojo Mayer and......

Keep in mind that he is a good drummer. Period. Doesn't mean he is a great guy. Lots of assholes are good at what they do. It's a shame he is doing clinics if he is rude, but again, I suspect, his...

Re: Starting Over After Twenty Years

I'm back at it after 30 years. Started with an electronic kit but of course that wasn't going to last so I have also bought a basic acoustic kit. Although I suck pretty bad, I think this is a good...

Re: Is It Worth It?

This is exactly where I am. I am doing it as an individual pursuit. I think I will see where I am in one year. If I'm still going strong an acoustic kit for my 50th birthday is something I might even...
