    Darren Jessee

    OK so this thread is a little late, since Darren Jessee was the drummer for Ben Folds Five, and they broke up 10 years ago. I don't think he's played drums on any recordings since--though he is singer/songwriter in his band Hotel Lights. Anyway, any other fans of his drumming for Ben Folds...

    How Depressing Is It...

    To record yourself playing along to your iPod and listening back to it. Just did for a couple of songs, and my playing sounds terrible and out of time. Kind of a reality check. If you're ever feeling good about your playing, record it and listen back, and see how good you feel then

    My testament to nail polish on stick tips

    A little while back we had a thread about strengthening wooden stick tips to keep them from chipping. One solution that made sense to me was coating the tips with nail polish, so I tried it out. I took several pairs of sticks I was using and coated their tips with nail polish. I wasn't very...

    Favorite Tempo Shifts

    Since we drummers are always focused on tempo tempo tempo I was wondering if you guys have ever found that a shift in tempo ever really was integral to a song.
