Re: What makes....

Times in multiples of 3 swing and times in multiples of 2 rock, is the simple way I think of it.

Re: Drum Covers and recording???

What is your aim for recording yourself? Self improvement, YouTube, demos, full-blown studio recording? That will help us narrow in on what you need to buy. "Recording" is as wide a question as "I...

Re: Anyone just play drums for themselves only?

I think all of us at some point will be playing only for ourselves, whether for an afternoon, a year, or the rest of our lives.

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

I don't disagree with anything you say, Larry... but gosh darn it, drummers deserve to play a good-sounding instrument too! It's always much easier to feel a good groove on my nice Ludwigs than on...

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

For a while, I had my rack toms set up in the same cascading, stair-step way that Neil has used on his DW kits, and it actually works quite a bit better than one would think. You have to concentrate...
