    Jazz album of the week...

    Had an idea this morning, it requires assistance. I was thinking I love jazz and learning about jazz and listening. If some of our more knowledgeable jazz guys/gals felt like giving us a listening recommendation for the week that we could study, learn from that would be amazing. I would think...

    Slick hats!

    Inspired by another members mention of a song called Darlene, I thought of Led Zeppelins Darlene. I thought about how cool that beat is and how sneaky and difficult it is to feel and nail that hi hat bark. So I thought I'd kick off a thread about slick hat parts you dig, just for fun. I always...

    Does anyone know anything about the history of brushes? When they were first used and anything known about the brush itself or its utilization. It dawned on me as I was checking out my recommended Clifford Brown and Max Roach album, I know nothing about brushes. Come to think of it, I dont know...

    $50 yard sale score

    This stuff never happens to me, but it did. Buddy calls from a yard sale, "hey dudes selling a drumset, you want it, $50." Of course I want it, can't lose too badly on only $50. Its a PDP 9x12, 12x14, 18x22 (my guesses on size). Its custom painted like reddish/pink with black powder coated...

    I think Im at the point where I really cant listen to the classic rock stations playing the same 100 or so classic rock songs Ive been hearing every day for the last 30 years anymore. I usually end up at the classical station now, who da thunk it? While the frilly, fruity stuff doesn't do it as...

    Little game....name that tune

    Heard a song on the radio yesterday, laughed at myself for not knowing the real lyrics for years. Thought it might be amusing to play a little game of trying to guess songs by the wrong lyrics. For mine, I was always wondering why this androgenous pop star kept saying "something conceded" over...
