Re: Wfd starts next thursday july 17

WFD threads are always fun. haha.

Ya know, one thing I'd like to see with the WFD would be having drummers actually play fast music. I mean, it's one thing to bust out some fast single strokes on...

Oh yes, I do know how it is. And, It's all good.

The unfortunate thing is that kids growing up.... don't actually know what real drums, with a real drummer playing them... even sound like.

Re: Lovers of metal drumming ...

Great playing, Phil's a killer drummer.

I sure do wish though that all these drummers doing these videos and playing this way, wouldn't sound replace their drums.
I would really love to hear...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Maybe it's not really the drum at all but, maybe your mic? Have you tried other bass drums or mics?
I know mics that have had their polars bumped out of phase will "ring" and it's really apparent...

Re: Amazing (old) studio footage - Simon Phillips with The Coors :)

Great video.
I got this recording when it came out in the early 90s. His sound on that tune was what captured me. Incredible.

Re: Making Ends Meet Between Tours?

Plus, if there IS "all this talent" in Nashville....why are "Da big dogs" there hiring guys out of Ft Lauderdale?

Could it be that they're looking for more than "talent"?

But, that didn't mean that you didn't already have (or weren't already using) the skills to work in that field right? Or did you just go out there blind without already having a grasp on what it was...

Re: Making Ends Meet Between Tours?

It really is surprising to me that there are so many musicians/bands that think moving to another town or city is going to make something happen that hasn't happened where they currently are.

Re: Daniel Liljekvist leaves Katatonia to "get a normal job that gets the bills payed"

It's too bad to see all these dudes getting out.

I get it though....I was forced out of my own band in 2006 for the same reason. Haha.
