None taken, bud... I hate flutists as much as you hate jugglers ; )''if any member of the band im in revealed they could juggle i would punch them in the face immediately"
lol my point was not entirely serious there forum users...! my 'opinion' was specifically aimed at the band i'm in not the drumming community who, i dont doubt contain many a good juggler. apologies for any offence caused to circus fans everywhere.
back on topic, the 'romantic' drummers is surprising to me. i would happily admit to being romantic but i wouldnt have associated it with a particular trait amongst drummers.maybe i need to research my drum heros more. the 6th point i definately agree with, which is interesting considering the drumset is most frequently an ensemble instrument (although clearly as expressive as any other instrument)!
1, Not meI don't know about flaky... but this threads got me thinking if there is a pattern to the type & personality of the average drummer
here's what I think.
Drummers tend to be ( in general...):
1) Athletic, muscular, strong, fit.
2) Aggressive type A personalities... quick to get irritated..can handle themselves in a brawl.
3) Definitely not stupid, but not the smartest guys in the band.
4) Most of them can juggle ( what a weird quirk )
5) Very romantic guys. They dont sleep around as often as they fall in love
6) Loners, mostly. Wont go out of their way to start a conversation, but pleasant when talked to ( the exact opposite of guitarists )
ya, I suppose you could call all this....flaky.
Well...I keep hearing drummer jokes and that drummers come and go and are the biggest flakes of the band.
Can someone explain why drummers get a bad rep? haha
My English has just been corrected by someone who lives in the Netherlands and it may be their second language. Does that say anything about drummers?How do you juggle in self-defence? If I had to defend myself I'd drop my juggling balls, or risk losing my other ones.
Rogue. It's ironic then that the French Horn is actually a German instrument...But I decided the French Horn was too french for my tastes and it was most definately not as cool an instrument as I had thought.
You have to give it to the Germans, though. Get all tanked up on beer and wine, roll and glue wood, add some hardware and.....poof.......a sonor kit! Then melt, cut and bang on some metal disks and .....poof!.....Meinl cymbals.But I decided the French Horn was too french for my tastes and it was most definately not as cool an instrument as I had thought.
Ya....that was a joke.
You have to give it to the Germans and French, though. Get all tanked up on beer and wine, start bending a tube of pipe, add some valves, put on a mouthpiece, and .......poof..........an instrument!
