Re: Your personal record for most songs learned in the shortest time?

Nothing too crazy. When i joined my band, they were getting ready to release their debut album so I had to learn the whole thing (13 songs) in a month before my first show with them.

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

After totaling my Corolla, I saw an opportunity to upgrade to a bigger car so I can transport gear more easily. I ended up with a brand new 2014 4Runner for an insane discount and I love it. =]

Re: Proof other musicians don't care how drums sound.

I didn't read the whole thread so I don't know if this has been said, but I didn't buy my Classic Maples for "other musicians". I bought them because I like how they sound, how they feel, and how...
