Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Music is indeed a very "broad church" (see what I did there ;)

Re: Woofer as a BD mic

Is it you playing the drums or the piano player?

Better definition for sure, but my initial observation was more about levels than tonal definition. The bass drum in the first clip was simply too...

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

Great responses again guys :)

This artist uses "edgy" rhythms with a distinctly staccato vibe in her writing. In many ways, that lends itself perfectly to programmed drum parts, but makes the...

Re: Woofer as a BD mic

TBBH, I couldn't really hear the bass drum. It was there, but pretty low in the mix (& I'm listening through good reference gear). A straight open beat without tom fluff would have been nice :)

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Yes, I've had the misfortune of seeing that clip Larry, & the even worse (if that's possible) this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jj7pDNDuoJ0 Truly special musical occasions for sure ;)

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Not spoiling the party at all Larry. I have a similar disposition, & have little room to comment when I examine my own playing, but there are limits & parameters. This guy is so far out in his...

Re: Any UK shops left with lots of cymbals to try?

Not shops, & maybe means a bit of travelling, but check out facilities at the independent distributors such as Cymbalise (Ufip), Amedia UK (Amedia) & others offering really high end cymbals at very...

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

Great observations & comments so far guys :) This is one track I really had to straighten out & get some attitude into the groove. The feel is much heavier playing live than this recording with...

Re: Yolanda Charles on drummers! :)

Here's one that gives a wider view Henri http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POwayWGeQAU&feature=youtu.be You may recognise Rob Harris from Jamiroquai, & I'm pretty sure Rob will be with Yolanda in the...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Apart from the (potentially) rather pleasing voice, & possibly the most grotesque drum performance ever, did she sing "keep my arse above the waves"? Hahahahahaha ---------------- :)

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

The sound, & to some degree, expectations of sound knowing how the parts were created, is a contributing factor, but not the biggest one IMO. Dynamics is a big one, as well as natural push & pull,...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

Most likely Jeff. I'm surprised there were no bolts of lightening :)

Indeed Henri :)

Wipeout on steroids!

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

Agreed Pete. The recorded (albeit low production/home recording) vibe just didn't translate. I'm sure a better player than me could handle the "translation" more appropriately, but for me, it was a...

Hahahahahahahaha :)

A lesson in everything you should never do, all rolled into one performance. Of course, the switch to mallets was going to make a huge difference on an Ekit!

Priceless!!! ...

Re: Yolanda Charles on drummers! :)

Lots of fun indeed, but this is one I like better :) With Nicolas Viccaro (who Yolanda works with quite frequently). Yolanda's groove at 6:44 is just wonderful :)

Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

Here's a weird one for you. I went for an audition last night, one of several drummers, Original indie music trio. TBH, I'm not sure if it went well or not (I expect I'll hear in the next few...

Re: When to stop taking lessons?

Most of the drummers I know who I'd least expect to be still taking lessons, are still taking lessons (& I'm talking working pro's here!). Most of the drummers I know who I think would really...

Re: New stuff and comments welcome.

Video & audio quality are fine Dave, as is your explanation/breakdown. The only thing I didn't like was the lick itself. Just too disjointed/awkward for me.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Congratulations! Cocobolo is an excellent choice, with many tonal qualities similar to a variety of rosewoods.

Out of curiosity, what specific rosewood snare have you been searching for?

Re: "Play something." What do you play?

Depends on wether I'm demonstrating a kit or not. If they want to hear me play (read rare) then some simple groove, or preferably they can just wait until the band starts . If I'm demonstrating a...

Thanks Jeff :) You know, the guys who want to rimshot the living crap out of our nice wood hoops :(
