Hating your playing, sometimes or always.

Lately I have been having problems with just not liking my playing from time to time. Mostly from band-practice recordings and stuff. The things I play aren't "wrong" or sloppy/out of time and so on,...

Re: ...for the jazz cats ...

I saw them last year. Brian hit his drums so hard, his drum-tech had to readjust his floor tom twice. Wayne wanted to play the whole night, but the other band members had to almost carry him off...

Re: German grip, which German?

I like to think that the american grip stems from holding KFC drumsticks.

Re: Is hard to make a living out of jazz? Are there any jobs out there?

Most of the jazz cats around here end up as session musicians and teachers, so it looks to me that it's really hard to live of jazz alone.

Re: Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

The only problem I've had, is that most of jazzers are a tight knit group, and it's sometimes hard to get to play with them. I've managed to play 3 tunes in one night out of the 4-5 times I've been...

Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

So lately I have been going to jazz jams in the city I live in. It's hosted by the local jazz-college and most of the people there study jazz or have studied jazz.

Just watching all those young...

Re: Whiplash Oscar win - will it spur sudden interest in "jazz drumming"?

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Thanks for the replies, keep 'em coming!

I think for bands it's maybe easier to get a perfect take, but for session musicians, the bar has been raised

Re: Practice!

I've been recently practicing time and groove a lot. And clearing my mind when I'm playing and just concentrating on the music.

The latter has helped my a lot, since I sometimes think too much...

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Sorry, english is my second language, so it's a bit lost in translation'y. What I mean is that it's easier to be a drummer and record in the studio than it was before. For example that you had to...

Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Hey guys. I'm writing a research paper for my school, and I'm in the middle of gathering info. The hypotheses is that there are fewer demands for drummers generally now, than there was 10-20 years...

Re: D'Angelo - Black Messiah

Been listening to D'angelo for some years, because of Chris Dave. Really dig the dilla beats.

Re: A new drumming hero emerges!

This is something I usually did on some blues-gigs, where the people watching were dance-band people.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

That's right. I played the drums to a midi/clicktrack, and everything else was re-recorded after I was finished.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

1:35 is a weird sounding crash
And the fills on 1:53 and 2:08 makes the tune lose momentum. That's about it I guess..

Anyways, thanks for the kind words.

Thanks, but I'm sometimes doubting my choices when I'm recording and I need outside input.

I was thinking of people that literally try to sound like another famous drummer.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

Well, if you want to be someone who sounds like everyone else, that's your choice. As for me, being successful isn't the main reason I play drums and do music, and I think that money and fame is a...

Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

A bit of a thought that has been going through my head recently when recording drums to music.

When recording for a track, the most important thing is to play for the music and support it(differs...
