Default Is this a problem?

All I think about is drumming. I don't feel alive unless I'm rehearsing or gigging or sharing here on DW. I spend so much time here on DW. I've been late for work numerous times because I'm on DW. I am not into my electrical business at all lately. I find it an annoyance that I even have to work lol. All I want to do is bang on my drum all day lol. I am completely obsessed with drumming and Drummerworld. I love giving back to the drumming community and playing drums with good musicians for audiences. It's all I think about anymore. Help!

I understand 100%. It's not a problem per-say, more like a passion. Our passions have a way of consuming us. Balance is always difficult. Just be glad your spouse is so supportive of your passion, or your woes would be worse.

I have a similar problem. I'm obsessed with making music and think about it all day. Then I sit down to write something, get nervous and stop.

I'm dealing with the end of my degree; most of which was composition. I have so many ideas but have no idea where to start.

hahahahahahaha

I can relate. I've come home at 2 in the afternoon and played hooky 75 times this year already. Nothing else inspires me lately as much as music. I am lucky that my wife understands me and encourages me to play as much as possible. She's a trooper but she's definitely over it when it comes to me rambling on about "my cymbal sounds" or some other bullshit.

I've grown comfortable in the last few years with not being inspired with my career. Ironically, I bet if I spent another five or ten years knuckling down, I could quit contracting and photography and take a shot at full time drumming. I guess I'm OK with it, the way it is.

Larry, let's start a double drumming doo wop dance band with the lead singer and guitarist as roadies and see how fast we can go broke.

OMG, you must be unsufferable. Rambling on about cricket bat weights and pitching styles and the current ugly trend in mod uniforms.

I don't blame her for shutting you down. I'd rather nail my privates to a burning building than talk about cricket.

It's not called pitching, it's called bowling ;-) and I'm a particular fan of leg spinners, although Graeme Swann is a current favourite despite him being an off-spinner...

Do you see what you did there? You tried to suck me into your depraved vortex of cricket mania. Not gonna do it.

Your wife is on the right track. I will now ignore your cricket chat from here on. ;-)

Either 708 test scalps....or the fact that he's knocking off Liz Hurley and now looks like a wax figure from Madame Tussauds. I'm up for either. ;-)

Larry, it's no more of a problem than me sitting here in the middle of a working day replying to your thread on Drummerworld, is it?

She's not my wife... I think Cricket has a part to play in that...

PFOG - It pains me to say it but I'm a big fan of Shane Warne. I know he's Australian but I can't help it. Not only do I think his bowling is remarkable but I quite like him as a bloke too. He's a total git most of the time and I love that. My love for Warne is more than made up for by my dislike of Ponting but you can all just say he's Tasmanian and leave it at that.

Trying to find somewhere around here that will take me as a beginner (I have played before, I just can't bat, bowl or field) and let me train in the nets. I've been trying to work on my leg breaks but it's tricky without a wicket to bowl at!

The bin MFB....the humble rubbish bin. All Aussie kids earn their bowling stripes by lobbing them down the driveway at the bin. The garage door acts as automatic wicket keeper, over the fence is 6 and out and any catches taken off the roof must be done so one handed.

In Aus you have these large garage doors and flat places to bowl. I have a pitted hardstanding where the drunks go in the afternoon to relieve themselves that's potholed beyond repair - great practice given some of the wickets we have over here!

Bowling at the bin explains Mitchell Johnson's accuracy though for sure.

I'm a great drinks tray carrier. Alas I never played much Cricket at school because I was a very keen (and quite serious) Rugby player. Lock or Flanker usually. Turns out that when you're 6'2", fifteen stone and fast at fourteen years old scrum-halves develop an aversion to you!

I'm from Kent and our County Ground had a huge Oak tree on it until a few years ago. If the ball hit the tree it was always a four and you couldn't be caught off the tree. Marvellous pub quiz facts.

You see Larry,

PFOG and MFB have no balance. They have the real problem.

Garage doors as wicket keepers. Good grief!

Larry, you start the best threads.

I was thinking about this the other day, because I feel the same way. I was talking to some friends at work about that old cliche you hear from people who say that if they won the lottery, they'd still keep working their job because they wouldn't know what to do with the free time.

I think these people are insane! I just think about how I could pursue music without having to worry about how much the gigs paid.

So in this sense, I'm happy to have a passion like music and drumming in my life. There are a lot of poor schmucks out there who don't. I fefel sorry for them.

Well, America and Canada were the first two international teams to play each other!

This is what happens when Australians meet the English. A spontaneous ribbing of each of the other nation's team...

Now do so for 20 odd years, without the help of any Saffies and we'll call it even.

Got a giggle outta the sprinkler though. The funniest thing a Pom has come up with on a cricket pitch since Jimmy Ormond counter-sledged Mark Waugh by saying "At least I'm the best cricketer in my family" :-)

I played cricket once. Not knowing whether I was a bowler, a gully, a fine leg or a third man, I chose to just tackle the batter American football style.

I have not been asked to come back and play.

I am certainly no judge of good cricketsmanshipdomhoodness.

You Brits are great.

Now let's go round the tram and bevershires, up the gorn and scundles and Jack's a Doughnut, there you are.

I confess, I have no idea what you are talking about.

I go through spurts. When I graduated college, I was ready for a break. 5 years of drumming everyday for hours on end. Getting chewed out for missing that one note in wind ensemble, a teacher who didn't care, a teacher that never complimented, and I was one of the good ones. After 1 year and a half of just teaching Band, I finally got back out, joined a band and started gigging again. Now thats all I think about. What new cymbals I wanna check out, if I should get that snare, which tunes to transcribe.... I love it. I regained that spark I had before college and now I'm thinking about going back for my masters.

You guys are too much, each and every one of you.
8Mile, I hear you brother about others not having anything that they are passionate about. I cannot imagine that.
And all this cricket talk....I have no idea what you guys are referring to...bowling, leg spinners, silly points??? seamers...
Please don't try to explain, you'll force me to lock the thread....

WHAT did I do before DW?

LONG LIVE DRUMMERWORLD

In fact. given our recent belting on the test cricket arena I'll take anything that's not 'Land Of Hope And Glory', 'Rule Britannia' or 'You All Live In A Convict Colony', at present. ;-)

And Larry, I realise I've done nothing more than decimate your thread to little more than cricket and the age old Oz/Pom rivalry.....the colonials vs the motherland, if you will. For that I apologise....but christ it's been fun not talking about double pedals for a bit, hasn't it?

Musicians in general are not exactly renowned for their punctuality.

Drumming for you is a passion, keep it under your control to make sure it does not become a problem.

+1 ... but that's how the powers-that-be want you ... to be a productive, fecund unit and a keen consumer ... have a high output and create more productive consumers. They hate artists because we're kind of useless and we tend to encourage hedonism. They especially hate jazz and blues because the players tend to have fun with their minimalist gear for decades (that's no way to drive an economy!).





Yes Larry, you have a problem ... the problem is that you need $$ from work to support your drumming habit. If I could play like you I'd be hard to prise off the kit too.

Ah crap Larry, you've laid my problem bare too. Dammit. I sort of knew this would happen when I took up the sticks again. I love it so much, but I need to get a grip of myself on the balance thing.

Anyhow, cricket. The English are riding high at the moment due to a bit of success for a change. We've got used to everyone else being much better at things we invented, so a glimmer of hope is paraded as national greatness. Lucky for me, I have zero interest in ball sports (steady Pol), so decades of disappointment have passed me by.

I suppose cricket is at least similar to drumming-ish. Trying to hit a very small spherical drum with a very big stick & trying not to knock over your 3 capacity stick bag.

If it's your business, how can you ever, possibly, be late? You simple need to re-adjust your "starting time" according to your lifestyle.

I'm totally obsessed, supposed to be studying for an exam tomorrow but DW and youtube are far more interesting. I had a change recently where I decided I DON'T want to pursue a full time career as a drummer. I love it too much to risk having it turn into a job. I'll still go hard with my original bands, make albums and play heaps of shows, teach some kids to play and maybe write a book, maybe one day it will turn into my main source of income, but I'd rather just have fun with it and see where it takes me.

I wrote a sweet tribal pattern this morning too. Real stoked with that.

Swing bowling and swing beats. Batting strokes and single strokes. Cut shots and rim shots.

The similarity is actually scary!
