Of course, there is always a few exceptions. I didn't mean ALL the threads.

Here's some excitement, Bon - last night only the guitarist and I could make it to practice. We slammed and bumbled our way through a ton of old rockers of the 60s, 70s and 80s, from Zep to Jimi to Doors, Stones, Divinyls, etc.

It was weird - I haven't rocked out for years. I don't know if it was rustiness or the new sticks and crash cymbal but I was struggling for control with the fills - I haven't played a 16th note triplet fill for 5 years lol

Not easy to seamlessly slip from one genre to another (in this case lounge to hard rock) ... I feel like I'd need to play rock for a few more jams to feel comfortable in that genre again.

My random thought for the day.
That's pretty cool. I've kinda gotten away from the standard 4/4 money beats too. I go back to them now and then but I can't help putting a little funk into it. My style has elements of a few genres. You should try some hippy music too like Steve Kimock.

Bon, you're a difficult guy to please, you know that, do you?
I've heard a few of Grea's tracks. That is a great thread, I agree.

The GymRat didn't impress me too much. Opinions are like,,,,well, you know where I'm going with this. (pfff..a Don Henley debate....**yawn**)

Double Kicks are for people who like double kicks. It's not where my head is at. I have better things to think about than double kicks. Maybe someday when I have nothing better to do I learn the double kick a little better.

I am difficult to please, yes, sorry for that. it's probably why I'm divorced right now.

To be fair, I can't think of an interesting thread to post either. Everything has been said on every subject. It's just fun to talk with fellow drummers. Have a good one, MAD Henri. Cheers!
