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

That's awful. He was a fantastic drummer, I love playing along to his stuff. It's deceptively difficult while never working against the music, just helping it flow.

I thought times would be...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I just bought tons of music. Half of it is way to difficult for me, but it's gonna be fun to learn to play the others. Great stuff like Death, Ulcerate, Elder, Mahavishnu Orchestra, East of the Wall,...

Re: A family member wants to learn jazz. Recommendations?

I say the opposite of what everyone else is saying. Start them off with the more well known, accessible stuff first, then as their appreciation grows for the genre, they'll find their niche and...

Re: Buying First Drum Kit

For the double bass: the answer is yes, you can use on foot. I use Iron Cobra Jr. doubles, and they're not too expensive, but built solid with a heavy feel. Def. recommended. At first, though, you'll...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

A girl I worked with once asked me, and after I told her just said "So?" Still kinda bitter about it. Her hobby was partying and getting drunk whenever possible then didn't work hard.

Now I have...

Re: Which drum kit to buy?

The PDP m5 and Pearl Session are the best on there by far for what you're looking for. The Session will hold better resale value of the two.

Pearl Forums are good starter kits too, but that one is...

Re: Tama Starclassic VS Sonor SQ2 Series

I'd get the Starclassics, but both Sonor and Tama are go-to manufacturers for me. If you have the money for an SQ2, why not get a Guru instead?

Re: is this hearing loss typical for drummers?

I agree that an app =/= professional analysis. Last time I had a real hearing test I had no problems.

Re: Gretsch Stave Snare WOW

You're right you can barely see the seems! Looks like a fantastic snare, wish I could try one. And your kit kicks butt too, man. Have fun!

Re: Kit Too Big or Too Small

To me, too big is when my cymbals have no space left and are clanging into each other. I can't add another ride or medium sized crash without taking out my china and splash on my right side. Still, I...

Re: Waiting for one tom

Took me 9 months to get a tom shipped to me, when it was supposed to be 3. Luckily it was to replace one I didn't like, so could keep using what I had as I waited. I'd order an in-stock tom for time...

Re: Dilemma : what should I sell?

Right on the money. I know it sounds good, but you could find one in better condition. An new rims will set you back anyway.

Re: stick in the eye anyone? not for the meek!

That sucks. Good to know it all turned out fine, tho. I never hit my eye but I got waaay to close, a few too many times. I never wear my glasses when I'm practicing at home, that's when I gotta pay...

Re: Is one genre of music really harder to play than another?

I played in the jazz band in middle school, but that doesn't mean jazz is easy, right?

I think that, generally, metal and jazz are considered difficult since players pride themselves on...

Re: Best 10 drum albums? How about the best 10 "live" drum albums?

I don't listen to a lot of live albums, but Porcupine Tree's Octane Twisted is fantastic. Gavin Harrison's grooves on I Drive the Hearse are even better than the studio version.

Re: I'm getting into this now

Welcome to the dark side Bo!

I'd also suggest some Opeth for double bass practice. Blackwater Park and Ghost Reveries really helped me work on my pedal work. There's some fast stuff that I still...

Re: Modern Drummer March 2014 issue - why do they do this?

And you know what else sucks? I don't know who Earl Palmer is! If he was in a magazine, listed up top, it would create more interest, wouldn't it?

Re: For the rockers - I've lost the will to headbang

Yup, that's me. I get offended when people say there's no way to headbang to Meshuggah haha.

Re: Best Buys from NAMM 2014?

I mentioned it in another post already, but damn does that red acrylic kit look good! And now that they have a 20" bass config, it just makes me wish I had more than loose change.
