Re: Your practice time...pleasure to work ratio

I'm about 90 % work. I love playing along with recordings, and that's how I learn some things. But I need to focus on exercises and coordination.

Re: What do you use for music . .

Anything and everything, really. I play along with the radio, drum machines, the TV, Youtube videos, motorcycles going down the street, birds singing, anything really.

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

I love The Shaggs. Why can't more bands sound like that?

Re: Determine the note of a head

Clamp one of those little electronic guitar tuners (such as a Snark) onto the drum and tap the drum head.

Re: Buying drums without hearing them first

I gamble and buy online.

I listen to sound samples on Youtube first.

Nice looking drum kit. Definitely worth $ 100. I like Pearl Exports.

Re: What if we quantized Bonham?

If they quantized me I'd probably sound better. You know, maybe not. I'll have to try this out.

Re: A dozen ways to save for gear...

Two of those suggestions are:

11. Boost Your Income

and 12) Take out a loan.

Re: Practice troubles

Change something. Because what you are doing now isn't working.

Do you jam with other musicians?

Re: Did recording yourself make you a better player, and how?

I made a recording of my practice a few days ago. I was surprised, I sound better than I thought I did.

Re: Cool Drumming (The Wrong Kind!)

I wouldn't play when it is that cold and windy. It's no fun at all. And if the wind speed is about 20 MPH it can blow cymbals over.

Re: how essential are backing vocals in a band?

Backing vocals are really useful but I rarely find musicians that can sing.

Re: Gigging on an Imperialstar?

I think a Tama Imperialstar is an intermediate level kit. Good heads (you might look at Remo pinstripes, EMAD 2 for the bass drum) and good cymbals can help a lot. You also have to play well. Good...
