Re: Traditional grip for rock?

I use trad grip about 90% of the time. However, I don't play that much rock. Blues is as close as I get. I don't have any issues at all with it. Neither do several pros...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

I was wondering about that. I remember him going on about the flat based stands. Apparently Tama's stands are better? I would like to see them come out with some flat based stuff. However, my OCD...

Re: This forum, meeting each other

I haven't met anyone on the forum. I'm not even sure if any forum members live near me.

Re: Ludwig Classic Maple or Vistalite?

Just my opinion, but I think the Classic Maple would be more versatile.

Also, not that I have any experience with it, but I've heard that Vistalites can be a chore to tune.

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

Did I miss where/why Peter left DW?

As much as I like to see folks move away from DW, I'm just curious what the reasons were.

Re: Playing with people standing behind you

We set up something similar to this (minus the horn section) for a while at my old church. It was a nightmare. I couldn't see anyone. I couldn't see any signals from the bandleader or watch his...

Re: Ginger Baker Reacts to Passing of Jack Bruce

My thoughts exactly.

I wonder if that quote really came from Ginger, or his people.

Re: Good exercises to do away from the kit and pad?

You could always practice brushes on a newspaper too.

For the kids here, a "newspaper" is basically the internet made out of paper...

Re: Syncopation, Dawson methods, Goal tempos?

Which exercise specifically? The right hand playing the melody and left filling in the missing triplet partials?

Re: new thread deleted. help?

And every dinner party seems to have at least one "Me Monster". The guy that only wants to talk about himself, what he does, etc. and not engage in actual conversation with others.

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

Good question. I suppose it's different for everyone. As Larry said, it depends on what your goals are.

I have taken lessons in the past; about 4 years total. I haven't found a local teacher...

Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

Same here. I'm stuck in Nebraska for now. At least they know what a drum shop IS in Southern California.

The only local drum shop--and I use that term loosely--has devolved into sort of a...

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

What about for the Weird Al stuff? How do you approach not just the correct part but the correct sound as well? Or is that why you have an arsenal of snares and cymbals?

I have always been...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

Not backwards at all. This is what I've been doing lately. I was going for a nice fat sound with the 6.5 brass and was surprised how low I didn't have to go.

If you try to tune the larger drum...

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

I've been messing with the same thing. I recently switched back to my 5" Supra as my go-to snare. Previously, I had used a Pearl Steve Ferrone 6.5" brass signature snare; basically a BB copy.

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

And sure enough, Gibraltar makes one of those too. I actually bought one of those quick release clutches when I really needed one (forgot on at a gig...luckily the music store was 15 minutes away)...

Re: Ain't no more fun...

Dude, that sucks.

Although, it's nice to have such a huge reminder of why you quit, right there on the last day, huh? Good riddance.

Yes please! Inquiring minds want to know.

We really love your war stories. It makes us (me anyway) feel better about our own lives. Sort of like watching Cops...

Re: How do you feel about buying used records?

That reminds me... I recently had to explain to a few younger guys at work exactly what "liner notes" were. They seriously had no clue.

That is a secondary issue that I personally have with...

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

I've had that happen too. I learned that lesson a long time ago. Play everything as if it's being recorded. Because sometimes, it is.

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

I've wondered the same thing. I use that exact clutch on one of my kits. After messing with it for a while I figured the threads weren't long enough at all. I do appreciate the threadless portion...
