Re: Hate drum solos

Listen to some Morello drum journey's or perhaps one of his students Jerry Granelli for inspiration.

Re: Band sucked - audience loved it $%%$?

Playbacks are often a humbling experience. What I usually find is that the music/song is way too busy.

CCR (as an example) was a band that stripped everything down to the barest of bones and...

Re: Bands that improvise - how do you signal the changes?

I'm in a band that goes into extended stuff all the time. The keyboard or the bass usually set up aurally and it just flows from there. Pretty esoteric indeed. And it works out well. It helps that...

Re: Anyone has done survey on drum kit owners before?

There was a college Research Paper survey up here a year or two ago.

Re: How many different Brands do you Use?

Drums: Keller shells (except the FT which is an old Slingerland I've had since the late 60's) and I also have a 13x14 Tama maple which I'm working on.
Snare: Yamaha, and an ancient Gretsch marching...

Re: Recommendations for a new kit

Listen to the wood. Figure out which wood you prefer. Figure out which drums you enjoy listening to when you hear music you dig. What are they made out of? Figure out ply's, understand the...

Re: Anyone ever done musical gigs?

An old friend of mine up in DC got into some orchestra pit work, which at the time sounded rather different for him, but he dug it, stuck with it, still does it and hooked up with quite a few other...

Re: Don't look at me, I'm hideous

Re: Anyone play or record with a mismatched set (besides just the snare)?

My FT is birch. The rack and bass are mapes. They were all re-wrapped a while ago. I like the FT in birch.

Re: Badges - I need a little feedback

I have always liked the badges that are held in place by the vent hole grommet. Always seemed like a logical placement as it gives the air hole another function besides breaking wind.

You have just moved on. Perhaps your "season" on that genre is over. Or perhaps not.

I will add that some Cuban players used to use X-ray film on the macho, for a high cracking almost wood block tone. I tried it back in the early 2000's but the film I was able to get my hands on was...

If you are shopping and a song you wrote is being played on the Muzak system, you have actually "made it."

Re: Drummer of 10 years and I'm starting over. Advice?

YouTube Ted Poor and see what can be done or extended from what you already have learned. Don't unlearn, but add to it. At risk of sounding corny... pursue the art.

Re: Drumming questions for any who know the answers . . .

Re: How hard do you have to play the hi hat to be heard?

Jordan and Carter Beauford use crashes for hi-hats.

I use New Beats 14" and in louder situations they are barely audible.
