Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

I can't stand it if there's any play at all in the throne I feel like I'm leaning off one side or the other.

As Dr Crinkle noted I also prefer a large enough seat that my legs are partially...

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

Miking? Micing? Help me out here, lol.

Re: Band vs Drummer?

Band.

I didn't even need to think about that one. I love to listen to and watch great musicians, as we all do, but it's always the music and performance as a whole that I'm interested in first and...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

You need to know a lot more music theory to master other instruments. I can go much, much further on drums, technically and musically, with a basic understanding of time tables and rudiments.

Re: heel up vs heel down vs flat footed

Thanks very much. I'm not struggling with technique or anything I was just unsure about the terminology and what people mean when they say up, down, or flat, in cases where the feet are level and...

heel up vs heel down vs flat footed

I play heel up but with my heels very low. I've seen some heel up players with heels really high and I'm wondering if that's heel up then maybe my "heel low" style is actually "flat footed or heel...

Re: Double bass practice idea?

I have never had to work on leg "strength". The only time I have felt a burn in my calves or slightly sore muscles was when I first started playing double bass and had not yet developed a solid...

Re: My timing is poor after all...

I will have to very respectfully disagree, or maybe not disagree per se, but I don't believe that is an absolute. Having perfect timing does not translate to not sounding human.

Re: Post your Greatest Weakness

Since day one I have entirely neglected left foot pedal technique on the hats. Hell, I don't even know the proper terminology for it.

High-hat foot thing. (That's wrong isn't it)

Re: Should I start out with electric drums?

In my experience the difference in feel and techique between e-drums and a-drums is not nearly as great as electric / acoustic guitar. As long as it's a realistically set up kit, quality heads, etc,...

USA drummers: paying import duty on drums?

Would anyone care to explain the procedure for making the actual payment for import taxes? I'm ordering drums from the UK to USA and from what I've gathered the tax on drum parts is 5.3%. What I'm...

I struggled with this for a while.

1. raised my seat height a little bit. Knees below my hips
2. moved throne back so my knees are more than 90%
3. sit further back on the throne itself, not...

Re: How to practice counting off?

Yes, either that or the second 1 and 3 are actually the half notes 3 and 4.

You don't have to be racist to use a stupid racist term like he did. That's not racism it's ignorance.

My right leg technique was developing slower than my left when it came to double bass. Playing straight singles on one pedal solved that problem in a hurry.

Re: Playing without accompaniment

The part in blue sounds like no fun whatsoever to me. One of the greatest joys I've ever known is playing music with a band. I'd actually go so far as to call it an addiction.
