Default Re: Country Music

I am now rehearsing with a country/pop band and I have found that there is also a certain amount of an R & B flavor as well, consider Tulsa Time for example, there are a few nuances that are mainly for country as in how you play your toms, fills etc. I will tell you one thing and that is I have had to keep my volume down at the present space we get together at and have been using Tala Wands and Regal blastix which has helped with that and with my development to be a better drummer. Just one other thing, with the exception of a few pop rock tunes we do ,most of the material is in the 3 min. range and we learn quite a few new songs every rehearsal so it feels productive.
