    The Death Of The Drumstick?

    after reading this thread, it made me think back on how many gigs I have ever had where we were told to play softer I can only think of 3 gigs in 40+ years of playing where that actually happened, and they have all been with my country band (none of the metal or punk gigs ever got told to be...

    am i being daft or is this worse??

    yeah...the second mix is definitely more cluttered than the first one. almost sounds like he tried to replace the drums with a drum machine the whole thing seems sort of suspicious and "dick-move" like to me

    Dying spark from drumming for too long?

    this has happened to me often as I creep towards my 5th decade of playing. there is an infinite amount of stuff I need to work on to get better, so there is always material. As i have said before...i dread the day when I have no more to improve on if I get bored with drumming, I grab my bass...

    I need advice

    I also actively avoided dating in high school, and part way through college. It saved me TONS of drama and misery ,and allowed me to get my personal life in order. I saw what my freind s were going through and wanted no part of that. I pretty much agree with everything @A J mentiones above...
