Re: Michel Camilo on drummers ....

Yes, yes, yes. Love his remarks about expectations from a drummer being an equal partner in the music. There's talk on this forum about the drummer just taking a backseat and staying out of the way...

Re: Tension

I enjoy being a contrarian, so I tried really hard to think of how to argue that tension is good. But I failed. I just can't do it! So I'll have to agree (sigh).

On a more serious note, I do...

Re: Autumn beauty!

Beautiful. It's almost going to be a shame when you cover them in gold satin flame.

Pushing the envelope ever further,

Re: Matt Johnson reflects on Jeff Buckleys "Grace" ... great video

Great stuff. So much great music came from the 90s. I was a teen in the 80s and I really didn't like much of the new wave or hair metal back then (I like some of it now), but the 90s were a breath of...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

MikeM, thanks for saving me a lot of typing.

Agreed on all counts. Drummers tend to have an inferiority complex. There are many musical styles but we tend to talk as if there's only one role for...

Re: My apologies, Andy

My drum! That Bermuda stole right out from under me!

Just kidding, Jon! (Please don't ban me)

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

Outrageously talented, in everything he does as a musician.

But only modestly influenced me, I suppose.

It was probably just a put-on. Sounds like a funny guy just having fun with you.

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

Interesting. I wonder if we polled musicians about whether they liked negotiating and compared it to the general population, what we'd find. My guess is that most musicians aren't crazy about...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

I hate it, too, Larry. It seems like such a waste of time to bargain. One of us knows how much she wants and the other knows how much he's willing to spend. Why do we have to play this game where I...

That looks awful, Andy. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

Larry, I'd recommend approaching headphones with the same "straying out of my comfort zone is a good thing" attitude. Anything I don't like or don't do well, I look at as an invitation to get better...

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

I agree with Bermuda that, when in doubt, replicating the patterns of the drum part as closely as possible is ideal. Unless the artist tells you otherwise, s/he probably wants that.

But I have to...

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I started getting concerned about hearing protection when I started playing loud music a few years ago. I chose these on a recommendation from a fellow musician and love them. They maintain noise...

I sure don't have Bill Ray's credentials, but for what little it's worth coming from me, I concur 100% with the content of this post.

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

Maybe my favorite Morello solo on YouTube. The left hand at 1:42 is from another planet. A master. http://youtu.be/Qh-nGxqo1N4

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

True enough!

On a related note, have you guys seen that clip of a band destroying Final Countdown, by Europe? I'm not sure if that was trolling, but I'm absolutely positive it was hilarious.

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

If this is trolling by the drummer, that would be the best thing ever. I love good trolling and I fantasize about pulling off something like that.

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

I can't bring myself to bag on these folks. I guess I have a soft spot for fellow musicians, no matter how far they still have to come.

Spoiling the party,

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

I'm not nostalgic for mono or anything, but some of those tracks that featured exaggerated stereo separation with drums in one channel and vocals in another sound terrible. At least keep the rhythm...

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

I have played with a guitarist who sometimes uses one and it's awful. As you say, it's not a metronome; it captures all of HIS imperfections and then repeats them. His playing is going to have a...

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

Depending on the musical tastes of the person who asks, I try to come up with an easily identifiable drum part from a song s/he knows. So if it's someone my age, maybe 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, My...
