    Converting YouTube Links Into Actual Videos?

    Mods, I was thinking about this the other evening but just forgot to post and ask: Is there a way to somehow convert a YouTube link into an actual video? A few other forums I'm on do this and it makes it much easier to watch a video rather than having to go to YouTube and watch it. Thoughts?

    Double-Bass Drum Setup Popularity - When Did It Begin?!?

    This might sound (or, like a stupid question but I have always wondered: Just exactly when did using a double-bass drum setup become the most popular or, I guess, most used? Was it during the late 1960s and into the 1970s??? Because it seemed as though the use of the...
