Re: Snare Drum sound...

Maybe its just my speakers or my faulty ears but the snare in the video sounds anything but 'dry' as you are describing. I hear overtones in the snare. In fact, I would say that those are the...

Re: Story about instrument 'duels' on NPR

I've seen those Rich/Krupa Rich/Roach and Rich/Shaughnessy things on youtube. They were pretty entertaining. Weren't those all done 30 years or so ago? A lot has happened in the last 30 years...

Story about instrument 'duels' on NPR

I caught an interesting story on NPR (http://www.npr.org/2011/11/11/142240743/the-subspecies-of-pianists-or-what-jerry-lee-lewis-and-beethoven-share) about olden times. At one time people would have...

Re: Pro Kit vs. a mere "Gigging" Kit

When the guitarist leaves his non-replaceable >$10,000 guitar on stage for some hack to get up and beat to hell, I'll leave my drums up there. Until then, I'm bringing a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz...

Re: David Letterman Drum Solo Week II

Re: David Letterman Drum Solo Week II

Its very very very cool of Letterman to feature drummers. I remember seeing stuff like this (BR on Carson, Muppets etc.) when I was a kid and it lit a fire under me. I'd predict a wave of...

Re: Drums, a precision instrument

I agree Larry. Once you get to a level where you have the chops to play what is in your head, there is this whole process of refinement that you have to go through and you've described it pretty...

Re: Saw a lousy drummer last night

You ought to talk to my wife. LOL. Or Ayn Rand for that matter.

Here is why I have little tolerance for this stuff when it comes to my business. I had to sacrifice to build the business. I had...

Re: Saw a lousy drummer last night

Do what I do. Fire their asses immediately. Or better yet, wait until they've been knocked down a peg before hiring them in the first place. God you're SO preaching to the choir.

Re: Saw a lousy drummer last night

I suppose I didn't word that well. Its not necessarily comparing yourself to other drummers. For me its finding the parts of their playing where they are stronger than I am. The process I go...

Re: Saw a lousy drummer last night

I guess for some people, it is very hard to admit that there are better drummers out there. For them, it is easier to just say 'there is no such thing as better.' As for me, I greedily search out...

For some people, the goal isn't to improve because they don't believe there is such a thing as 'better.'

Re: Saw a lousy drummer last night

Hey Larry,
Don't be so hard on yourself. Your original post is very informative and insightful if someone reading it depersonalizes it.

The sound balance issues that your drummer has make it...

Re: What is the use of double braced hardware?

OMG. Tell me you have a couple roadies or that you gig with another kit. I'm not sure I could fit that kit in our trailer. Looks like a heck of a lot of fun though.

Re: What is the use of double braced hardware?

Here's what you want. (http://www.dwdrums.com/hardware/6000/) Its DW hardware so you still get the quality but its single braced and designed to be much lighter. I've got 9000 series hardware and...

Re: Gretsch Round Badge Specs - Please!

I've got a Jasper shelled Camco kit from 1966. It sounds different from the Jasper shelled Gretsch kits from the same year. Its been a while since I've been able to inspect a Gretsch shell from...

Re: Drummers with deteriorating skills

Bingo! That is why serious music educators place emphasis on proper technique. And proper technique isn't necessarily chops, but it can lead to chops. Thats one of the reason we all laugh so hard...

Re: No Standard Technique?

Ouch. OUCH. OUCH! If there is an objective measure, then by definition it is universal and doesn't change depending on perspective. To use the apple example again, if a boy in California sees an...

Re: No Standard Technique?

I am glad we are in agreement!

I was driving to my afternoon gig and a question hit me and it is boggling me a little. If there is no 'better' or 'true in every context' when it comes to...

Re: No Standard Technique?

This has been beaten to death. The majority on this forum have decided that there is no such thing as a "better" or a "worse" drummer. The only thing is the "right thing for that particular song." ...
