Does your fingernail length affect your play?

This might seem strange, maybe right up Larry's alley, but I swear I play better with about 1/16th of an inch of the "white" part there, as opposed to freshly cut, with no white part left. The only...

Also, if it hasn't already been mentioned here, learning to vary the volumes (dynamics) of each limb independently. Sometimes you just want the backbeat louder, for example, and leave the kick and...

Re: Sweaty Hand Issue

There are various products for this. I would suggest either some grip tape on your sticks, or gloves. Zildjian makes a good drumming glove. There are also sticks that are dipped in a rubber like...

One variation I use with the drum rug is to use velcro strips to mark positions instead of tape. It's easily repositionable and no tape residue.

Re: The beauty of only one kit

Well, I have 2 kits, but they are both the same config and sizes. One at the band's rehearsal space, and one at home. The home kit is the one I use for gigs. Does that make me a one kit guy, or...?

Re: What Else Do You Play?

Just enough keyboards to be dangerous. Also, I have played guitar and violin in my early musical development, but I've played drums since I was 14, and now I just turned 51-derful.

Re: What do you do...

First, DON'T give up! Mary, you can't look at others' progress in a given amount of time and expect yours to be the same. People learn at different rates. One person may only practice for an hour a...

Re: Wood vs other materials

Don't forget, a lot of the overtones, especially unwanted overtones, are the result of head choice and tuning, no matter what the shells are made of. As far as resonance, my Trick kit properly tuned...

Re: Drumline, not doing it.. Is that bad?

Playing snare drum in my high school marching band was one of the best times of my life!

Re: Other uses for drum gear/parts

Here is a Paiste Rude 18" crash from 1981 that I shattered in less than 6 months. (Rude's are too brittle for me) So I made a clock out of it. So, it's had a 6 month life as a crash, and a 30 year...

Re: Anyone Think They Have What It Takes?
