    Article on Neil P. from RATM Tim Commerford

    Hang on, so Peart was pissed off that Commerford suggested he rode bicycles to venues? lol. It's a rather amusing scene to picture, Commerford being dragged from the room ranting wildly, Brad Wilk in the corner sheepishly avoiding eye contact.

    1980 Yamaha 9000

    i've got something very similar and have never had problems with rattling lugs, the usual build quality you'd expect from Yamaha. Although you'll never know until you see them...

    FAO John Riley's Art of Bop Drumming users

    Ok, got an enquiry/ point of confusion that will only make sense to players who use the Art of Bop Drumming playalongs, specifically 'Last Week', the medium tune that employs an ABA form. Part of the form describes 'two chorus piano solo (first chorus AAB)' Counting through, i'm getting...

    Keith Carlock

    Dunno, maybe the recording, I can't hear any difference between the Gretsches and the Yams he played. It's all much of a muchness and I say that as someone who's played both brands. It's how you play 'em

    Macbooks, DVD playing, cheesed off

    I'm looking for some recommendations for freeware DVD playing software for macs. I'm finding the Apple DVD player and VLC player are fiddly in their layout and have yet to find an easy way to browse chapters and repeat over bits. And Hudson Music, if you're reading, would have been super if you...

    practicing on an electric drumset...

    This is why i suggest choosing wqhich ekit to buy carefully. For feel and quality the Rolands win, but have the problem of featuring rims, which allow for great realism but are much more noisy when struck. Similarly, the cheaper Rolands have cymbal pads that feature 'realistic feeling' plastic...

    practicing on an electric drumset...

    Just be careful to choose one that is best suited to your needs - Tolgalpala paints a rosy picture, but the fact is they do present noise problems, especially to those living below you in an apartment, or those in next door rooms, and if you only play on an ekit, you soon get out of shape on the...

    practicing on an electric drumset...

    Why not just adjust the ekit to resemble the position of the instruments on your acoustic kit? I think Justdrums made this very point in another thread recently. To the OP keep in mind that whether mesh or rubber pads, the stick response is completely different to that of a real drum head, and...

    Keep it greasy

    So my experimenting with sibelius and pdf creating leads me to share this transcription. Note that I didn't transcribe this myself, but i've retranscribed from an older, harder to read transcription that I found somewhere on the internet. My original is not tagged with the transcribers name...

    Gary Novak

    No thread on a guy this gifted is outrageous: His chops have a bite to them which many lack, definitely one of the world's masters. I like the way his matched grip looks too. Should anyone afford the occasional thought on the man, place it here.
