The drummer should support the music...
That's exactly what the drummer is doing. Notice he lays off in the quieter passages. What he's doing in my opinion is becoming part of the music. Supporters are those behind political campaigns. LOL They are also the things my Dad used to wear to keep his socks up except he called them garters.The drummer should support the music...
Better yet don't over lyric it. I was at the library the other day, and they have collections of song books, "songs of 2018" etc. Most of the songs read like a bad melodrama. Way to much BS IMO. OH no here comes the vamp.I say don't over-sing. The singer should support the music. No "yeah yeah yeah" , no "wooooo hoooo".
If there are no lyrics for a part, put a sock in it.
Thank you for this statement Uncle Larry. I would like to add that those of us who play like this are still real drummers playing real music. We aren't "doing it wrong". It's what the music calls for. And since the music contains drums, someone has to play them. It really is that simple.Let's celebrate the fact that we can invent any music we want instead of trying to place limits on others.
but it does bring up a good point...that of the drums as always being "yelled at" for stepping out of a supporting role only. The only other instrument that is more maligned in this aspect is bass (which I also play). Truly, ALL instruments are support at times, and ALL instruments are also solo instruments. The key is the balance of those uses. As in any song, contrast is the key element to a good song.Just to reiterate, since stuff is easily lost when posting text: The post was meant as tongue in cheek and not to be critical of this band or this music.
Should have been a groovy shuffle over blazing double kick. Actually my death metal band does quite a bit of 3/4 half time and I've been tossing in shuffles and all kinds of weird stuff lately. I love the opportunity to groove and not play at top speed.The programming is appropriate for that. What exactly are the rules for metal in 3/4 phrased half-time??
I can take her for about as long as it takes for me to switch songs! Great voice, but her WAAAAaaaAAAwaaaAAAEEEEEyaaaaWAAA Makes my head explode. As for the song...topic of this thread, probably one of the easiest blast beats I’ve been able to listen to. I’d say well done.Mariah Carey has a lot to answer for...
Room for everyone and everything. They have every right to make it. Can't please everyone. It's not good to tear musical brothers and sisters down.
