Re: oak for hickory drum sticks

In general, oak is heavier than hickory. However, as you know, each pair of sticks is different because each tree is different. You can get two pairs of a particular model and there can be a big...

Re: What is your drum setup pet peeve?

Drummers who sit too close to their drums. When you're using a house kit at a show or jam and the throne is too close and you can't move it back any further. It's hard to play when you have to pull...

Re: Stage Etiquette

Guitar players tuning at full volume on stage. People practicing the opening lick of a song at full volume before we start the song. As far as setting up, I'm the opposite of Larry. I always try...

Re: How many bands have you been in at the same time?

Right now I am in three bands and I play at church every week. I suppose that makes four. This is the most bands I have ever been in at one time. On top of all that I work a full-time job. Between...

Re: Amplified Bass drum sound problem.

I was going to start another thread for a question, but since it's a similar topic to this, I'll ask it here. I recently joined a new band and it's the first group I've been in where the band had...

Re: I'm a lucky guy

My wife tries to take an interest in my drumming. She will help me set up my drums at gigs where I have a fast changeover. A few times she has even taken them to a gig and completely set them up for...

Conflicted on whether to join a band.

Re: Old and new

I read an article on how radio stations pick their music. They decide what age group they want to advertise to, then they calculate the years that the people in that age range turned 18. They go...

Re: need help counting

I would disagree about it all being in 4/4. The second bar of the breaks has two extra beats. That happens twice in the song during the first and second verses. Two extra beats twice in the song...

There are a couple of different ways you could count this. You can think of them as four bars with bar two being six beats long or five bars with bar three being two beats long. I would go with the...

Re: Name that rhythm

A popular blues groove that doesn't have an official name is one I call the 1 3/4 shuffle. A mathematical play on words from the double shuffle. It's the basic groove that Chris Layton plays on Cold...

Re: Another Band Drama Thread

We are a Chicago blues band. One of the venues is a restaurant that has music in the bar area on Saturday nights. In that venue, I played a small 16" bass drum, snare, hi-hat, and crash/ride...

Re: Technical question......Song endings

Re: Learning a Song You Hate

Re: How do you not hear your bass drum?

I've just come to accept that I will not be able to hear my bass drum in live situations. Years of playing in different bands, and it's always the same. As soon as the bass player comes in, my bass...

Re: The beauty of only one kit

I have four kits and I think my back would revolt on me if I had to go down to one. One kit stays in the practice room. I would hate to set up and tear down just to practice. One kit stays in the...
