Default Minor Larry meltdown & other drumming shenanigans / crimes :)

Just a snapshot video, captured on my iPad, on my weekend hang in Larry's basement temple to all things percussive :) Mildly alcohol fuelled fun hang with Larry, Jeff, & Rich. Note that I cleverly avoided having any of my drumming crimes recorded ;)

Sorry about the horrible audio quality.

Enjoy ;)

Larry, you're an electrician, right? ;-)

Cool photo by the way.

It was a great hang (just like the wiring ;) ;) ;)




Later the same evening ;)

Looks and sounds like great fun! Makes me wish I still lived in the Mid-Atlantic region. :)

Yea, it beats tripping over wires all the time. I have them like that for a reason. See, they break up the soundwaves so there's less....intact soundwaves. You wouldn't understand :P

We did have a good time. Thanks for the nice words Madge. It's hard to get people to take me seriously though, they figure someone so good looking must be used to getting by on looks alone. :P

So what your saying is that you're an Electrical-acoustician engineer, right?

See, I get it. :P

Not really, no you don't. Only a few people in the world understand it, and you're not one of them :P

It's not your shortcoming or anything, it's all good.

Right, that's it, I'm painting the inside of all our drums silver! ;)

The video: That's a typical white guy jam session, isn't it? Let's see how the funk-endowed do it:

I went to the wrong church, obviously. Thanks for posting the fun pics!

The fumes from the paint will give you greater clarity. And a path to bath salts.

It's OK Andy. Don't hate on me because I'm...pfft...perfect in every way :P

I'm glad you put that up there. It shows what I have to go through on a daily basis. I had to pretend like I didn't know what I was doing, just so you guys wouldn't be too outclassed. I have to dumb it down my whole life it seems lol. I'm getting pretty good at it too, acting stupid.

Nobody knows....the trouble I've seen....

I feel a sense of worthlessness now. Please teach me Obi-wan.

Ah, but you're forgetting that we deliberately didn't show the uber chops displays for fear of being overwhelmed by fan mail ;)

Now that's the deal! People often remark "I took a bath on that", & now I know why :)

Exactly, if only they knew!

Me too, & they look super killer on a chrome wrap or stainless steel kit. Te gold/chrome ones even more so. I rocked those heads in the early 80's :)

Really?

I'm Puerto Rican (not a "white guy") and I play rock and metal, from straight to progressive. I guess I should have started breaking into a double bass hairta or something while just noodling around on a friend's kit.

I have no idea why you would contrast our little hang out with a friggin Gospel Chops vid. Unless you wanted to try to show us up.

I could post videos of Marco Minneman taking the piss out of your gospel chops heroes. Would that make me cool like you?

My sincere apologies, Jeff. Obviously my attempt at presenting a humorous juxtaposition of the two jam sessions went awry and hurt your feelings. I can assure you that offending you was NOT my intention. I'm very sorry for missing the mark. Mea Culpa.

We edited all of Jeff's cool licks out of the video so the rest of us don't look quite so bad ;)

Good call :) So much often get's missed in interpretation.

Jeff is a very accomplished player of some note, but the setting of this video is one of 4 guys just trying out drums without any care (evidence video) about a good standard of playing. Great fun :)

I'm sorry if I over-reacted. I just read it entirely the wrong way, one of the pitfalls of reading a forum post.
