I doubt polly would be able to get to sleep with a snare in the house sounding bad.We could perhaps have Polly's opinion on this topic? she's both sides of the story... the girl and the drummer, do you have any conflicts or querells with the duo-personality thing Polly?
I agree Polly, with the danger of her replying "is that all what's bothering you? You're a sad soul"......him replying in a straightforward manner ... "Dang and blast, Enid, I just can't get that blessed snare drum sounding right."
...Just talk, dammit! If you can't confide in your partner about your tuning woes then she's not The One. Simple...
Yes, there's the risk of being misunderstood but I've been out with one of those self absorbed Easter Island statue types. They're bloody frustrating ... unless you're the kind of person who enjoys talking to brick walls!I agree Polly, with the danger of her replying "is that all what's bothering you? You're a sad soul"...
Now if Nadal looses in the fifth set against Jokovitch in the Australian Open's final, there will be some long faces around the house, but at least I will know why... )
True dat - but many men have no interests outside of work too. And man, some of the jobs these guys are into ... "Oh, so you're an accounts development administrator ... how, um, fascinating".that is hilarious I love that... the thing is, I always say is that 'many" not "all" modern women don't have hobbies or interests of their own, and they obbsess about what their man is doing.
Mike, you're a musician so you're allowed to have neurotic little obsessions. Any person who takes up with a muso and doesn't expect oddball stuff isn't paying attention!In my experience, if I'm obsessing over something music or drum related and fess up to it in that kind of a situation (before it becomes a 'situation'), it doesn't get me off the hook, so I will often compartmentalize and hide my annoying little obsessions and hope to not get called out on them. It's almost automatic.
Most musos I've known have tended to be a little mad. Sometimes in a good way, sometimes in a bad way, very often bothThanks, Polly!
True, but to be such a ‘Drummertist’ after playing ‘Too Many Songs’, I try to ‘keep it simple’, overplaying only provide a ‘mediocrefunkybeat’, even ‘eddiehimself’ agrees with me, but really I have ‘Xero Talent’, I’ve said it ‘Numberless’ times on this forum, but the bottom line, we’re all ‘Mad About Drums’ and it’s reflected in our tuning, our ‘resohead’ are tighter than the batter head, with a nice ‘Wavelength’ to give a nice rebound to our ‘Sticks’ for that nice ‘oldrockdrummer’ soundWell, to be honest, your username gives the game away.
