Default Hello Drummerworld!

Great to be here, my name is Evan, I am from Kentucky. Been playing percussion for about 15 years; the one-man percussion orchestra for about 8 :-) Look forward to gaining and sharing knowledge on this awesome database. Just got a new kit; I haven't owned one in two years. The torture!! I'll post pics of my kit ASAP, as I don't have any cymbals just yet (looking for K's and A's though!) Talk to you soon!

Hi guys. I"m new to this forum. I've been on other forums for a while. Some of you guys might know me as sonorguy, but that name was taken here. As my name describes, I build stave snare drums, and I play a German made Sonor force 3000 6 piece birch kit. I generally don't have too much to say, but I'll chime in when I have something substantial to say.

Nice to meet y'all, this place has a good feel to it!

how did you start drumming? I was in jazz band in middle school, and our drummer couldn't play Oye Como Va. On break, I went to the kit and played it spot on (with out any formal training). The band came back in and we started grooving. After that, it was drums ever since.

I just started a "drum channel" on youtube. I only have 2 videos up. One is a half-time shuffle funk go-go groove, I named the "Filipino Shuffle". And the other is a sticking I've been messing around with. Please check it out!

Hello,

I am James Richardson and have just signed upto the Drummerworld forum.

I live in the Southwest of England and have been playing drums since the age of 12, now 20. I am about to start my third and final year of studying toward my degree in Music at Plymouth University.

Absolutely love drums and developing all aspects of my playing. I play permanently in the bands ABSENCE, ICENI and EGNUM. I haveplayed in many other bands, function and covers bands and currently play in a variety of bands on a temporary basis too. I have played in samba percussion orchestras and have recently started to co run my own called 'Bloco Cadencia.'

I play a Mapex M Birch kit, with a mixture of Paiste Alpha series cymbals and Meinl Generation X series cymbals. I use Vater 5A sticks.

Default Re: INTRODUCTIONS - Please use this thread to introduce yourself

Ah, I hadn't noticed this thread and I'm still relatively new to regularly posting here, so:

real name? Probably not Brew Billfold.

age? I was born in the 1960s. I don't like to think about it more exactly than that. Seriously--I'd have to think about it a minute to know exactly how old I am. I also frequently do not know what year it is, what month it is, what day of the week it is (not so unusual that one), etc. I do not like thinking about time in that way and made a conscientious effort to not do it. It worked. I'll probably try to forget the decade I was born in soon enough.

how long been playing? Since I was about 6 years old.

origin of user name? A pun--a modified spoonerism--on my favorite drummer's name.

top 5 drummers? Bill Bruford, John Bonham, Jack DeJohnette, Carl Palmer, Elvin Jones

make of drumkit? I don't like sticking to one brand, and I like using an assortment in one set-up, even. I'll basically use anything that makes a sound, as long as I like the sound. That includes budget stuff, kids' instruments and even things not usually considered musical instruments.

make of cymbal? Same as my "make of drumkit" answer.

where do you practice? On my own, when I'm at home, in an apartment, so it's on an electronic kit most of the time. I also have pads for acoustic drums so that I'll sometimes play on those instead. With others, wherever the rehearsal is being held. That could be anywhere, right? One of these days, maybe, my wife and I will finally buy a house . . . who knows. I haven't owned a house yet and I'm pretty far along. It would be nice to be able to practice--and record--an acoustic kit at home again, though.

are you in a band/s? Yes, too many, and I also do a lot of work-for-hire gigs, and some music completely on my own (as I also play keyboards, bass, a bit of guitar, etc.).

covers or originals? Well, what I prefer to do is originals and "original covers"--one of my own bands is dedicated to only doing covers, but doing them in a Residents/Zappa/Devo etc, way--so that it can be difficult to even recognize the tune we're doing. In a work-for-hire capacity, I often have to do jazz standards and some other covers. What I haven't done in a long time is play in a band where we're doing popular music covers where the band is trying to make them sound like the originals. I have no interest in that unless it's a situation where I'd be making a lot of money . . . so that my interest would only be the money. I just do not normally like the idea of doing covers "faithfully", although I do enjoy tribute bands where they're trying to get every last detail--including the look, instruments, etc. the same. I would consider being in one of those if it's for an artist I love, but I wouldn't want it to be the only thing I'm doing.

what style of music? Well, aside from the "original cover" band, which is a side project, the stuff I write on my own in my primary band tends to be Zappaish (too much so sometimes--i've had to try to NOT let that influence come through so much at times), or, as I've sometimes tried to keep in mind, "As if Stravinsky wrote funky, fusiony, heavy psychedelic carnival music". I have another side project that concentrates on "horror" music, which ranges from more ambient stuff to some "original covers" of music from horror media (films, TV shows, games, etc.) and some horror-related things (like Scooby-Doo, say). Those are my own bands, and none of them are very commercial (or commercially successful yet). Working for others, what I most like to play is progressive rock and fusion. I do a lot of more traditional jazz gigs. I can enjoy playing almost anything though--I was doing a reggae gig recently, I've done a fair amount of country, I've played hip-hop, funk, punk, metal, showtunes, classical . . . I'm open to anything really, as long as either (1) folks are trying to do something music-theoretically creative with the music in question or (2) it pays well or has a good chance of leading to things that will. I'm not at all against "selling out"--making a lot of money gives you a chance to do whatever you'd like to do, whether you'd make money or not, and I'd much rather make a lot of money playing music than in some white or blue collar 9-5 job. I'm just not well suited to the latter.

favourite take out food? Pizza. I could eat pizza for every meal every day. Of course, I'd look like Leslie West if I did that--and worse, have health problems--so I just save it for a periodic, heavenly treat.

country? I like country, yeah. Oh, you mean what country am I in. The U.S. NYC-area at the moment.

one really odd fact about yourself? I'm an extremely over-educated s---head. And maybe I have a weird sense of humor. Oh, and I'm also a very odd combination of a Libertarian and a socialist politically. I've yet to meet someone else with my political views (or many of my views in general), which makes it very unlikely that I'd ever see a government structured the way I'd structure it if I were king.

how did you start drumming? By moving my hands up and down. Seriously, though, when I was maybe 4 years old, I went to a relative's wedding (I don't even recall what relative--it would be interesting to ask my mom to see if she remembers). There was a band at the reception, and I was just fascinated by the drummer. For most of the reception I stood a few feet away from the drummer, staring at him. In retrospect, it's surprising that he didn't start "accidentally" dropping sticks my way. I probably creeped him out. He probably thought I was a Damien (well, or Bad Seed, as this was prior to the Omen) who was going to end up pushing him down a flight of stairs. Anyway, I was fascinated enough with drumming that I kept bugging my mom to let me take lessons. I only got a toy drumset at first, but after wearing through two of those (the heads were probably just duct tape after awhile), and still being just as interested, my mom finally gave in, figuring that her hearing wasn't so important after all.

Hi. I ended up here as a result of being a frequent visitor of the Drummerworld website. I noticed for the first time that one can join/post to various 'discussion boards' and decided to try it out. I'm technologically illiterate, to the point that I have to ask my wife to do everything for me online, even just to send email messages.

Anyway, by way of introduction, I'm SQUEAKY, a drummer in Chicago. I'm an age 40+ mucisian having been playing for over 20 years. I've performed with various local bands in the Chicago area over the years. I've given my time and loyalty to various bands, but ultimately have always run into roadblocks due to certain band members not doing their part to help the band become a success. The disappointment of seeing a potentially really great band end up falling by the wayside is very discouraging, but I've maintained my dedication as a musician, even though I've seen many others I knew years ago just give up totally.

The competition out there is fierce, and if you don't have the mental fortitude to stay with it, you'll never get anywhere. Being dedicated to a band is nice, but if the band you're with is an unknown group, or you have to contend with band members who constantly behave unprofessionally and do things that hold back the success of the band, these things cause you to feel totally unfulfilled as a musician. My wife has been trying to convince me over the years that I should have focused on strictly FREELANCING, that way I wouldn't have to contend with dealing with internal issues that can cause a band to fail. She'd tell me that if I were to just FREELANCE, I'd have a better chance of performing with those musicisians who operate in a strictly professional manner, like myself.

Well, hindsight can weigh heavy on your mind, but I'm determined to make it. People tell me I’m good, and I want to keep moving forward in the quest to achieving both name recognition and financial success in this business. I have the talent and drive to work with other pros out there, but need to figure the best way to network, so that I can get the attention of the right people.

I'm an excellent double bass percussionist, versatile in ANY style of music; and also do background vocals. Folks can see me on my webpage at myspace.com/squeakychicagodrummer.

My professionalism and dedication to my craft is evident in how I sound, and I'd like to network with other musicians who think the same way. If you can check out my webpage, I'd like here your feedback. Thanks for your time; I look forward to communicating with other pros out there :)

How did you start drumming? I started playing piano when I was 4 years old or so (my mom teaches piano and voice lessons), and I always competed in competitions every year. Then there was a point where every year I began to sit in on the different drum divisions, if I wasn't competing in something myself at that time, and just hang out and watch. It was shortly after that I started taking lessons, and eventually got to compete in a few drum competitions myself!

one really odd fact about yourself? Well lets see ummm.... I'm a medical professional and i have developed a very mild case of ocd and i literally freak out if stuff is not organized wither it be my drums, office, or home. I dont know if thats odd but thats what came to me.
