Re: Beginner's book?

Possibly a bit pricy, and you need to read French, but this:

Re: The Choice to Play the Drumset

- Was the decision to play the drums 100% your own?

No, but I'd always wanted to.

- Were you presented with the choice (by an adult) of selecting an instrument by which to learn music, and...

Re: Talk about a drumming revelation you've had

^^ Both of the above, but the second bit also depends on the bass player. S/he has to lock into me as much as I have to lock into her/him, enabling me to do my job, and I've played with some...

Re: Overqualified For The Gig

My daughters tagged me in that video. I have no idea why.

Re: Got stage names?

Oh god yes, as you know. Only three people in my drumming circle call me by the name on my birth certificate, and I wish they didn't - it just doesn't fit.

I have a different name for every band...

Re: UK Drum Show - who's coming?

Are we fated never to meet? GAH!

Re: What's actually going well for you in your world of music?

I've ditched my "best" band that nobody wanted to hire. (And I didn't like most of them much, and most of them were tossers.)

Now I am left with a band that isn't the best band in the world, but...

Re: Drummerís Place In Band

I'm a classically-trained (albeit dreadful) pianist; I read and write music; and I compose. I've just left a band because they had no idea what I did (and they should have).

Too many times I've...

Re: First paid gig!

RRAAAHHH!

Well done you, and your band!

If your band hasn't realised that you're a "girl", there's no reason why anybody else should think otherwise!

I totally get what you're saying,...

Re: Influencing people close to you with music

Mr Madge SNORES if I drag him to the opera.

He's so lucky that 30 years down the line, we're still married.

Re: A New Journey

Oh no.

Mitch and I came to DW at about the same time, and at about the same point in our journey as drummers. We hit it off immediately, for both of the above reasons and more.

He is one of...

Re: Instrument infatuation

This, and more importantly for me, the way it sounds. When it doesn't sound the way I expect it to, it completely throws me.

Re: Drummer Vs. Vocalist: Who Can Easily Win A Girl?

Oh, everybody knows I'm a pussycat masquerading as a tiger.

Or is it the other way round? I can never quite remember!

Btw, there were only one or two dodgy notes. If I may be so bold as to...

Re: Drummer Vs. Vocalist: Who Can Easily Win A Girl?

Absolutely! Being a woman, I crave attention, and I really can't help throwing myself at a singer, regardless of their or my orientation.

Re: Drummer Vs. Vocalist: Who Can Easily Win A Girl?

Yep, you've nailed Mr Madge in one! Actually, he only married me because I was the first woman he'd ever met who was shorter than him. Worked for us!



That is a brilliant idea and one that I...

You're one of my best DW friends, and I can't wait to meet you.

Crikey Mitch, that's not great news and I'm very sorry to hear it. All my very best wishes to you, my friend.

Re: Bass players

It perhaps depends how you interpret "bigger" and "men". Most people are bigger than me!

Most of my bass players are/have been tall; one was also broad and not a man; three of them have been tall...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

Yes, absolutely - but one of the points I was making was that I was "encouraged" to be something I wasn't. I learned to be that something, and as an adult, it was very difficult to unlearn it. Your...
