Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Good on him, I say! Screw what others think of you. The only thing he's doing wrong is being a bit insensitive about how he makes others feel within themselves, which doesn't work for me but I can...

Just realised, I am surrounded by Larrys! :)

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Larry, I remember that feeling!

In the 80s I spent a couple of years playing in a band with a guitarist who liked to use the delay effect like U2's The Edge. I always felt a bit of trepidation...

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

Larry, it's a little known fact that it was not in fact Bernard who played with the Beatles, but his twin brother Arnold (Ugly) Purdie.

Many tracks attributed to BP were in fact Arnold's doing,...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

I'd gave it a thumbs up - really dug that (though I doubt too many here will). Fab musicianship and creativity. It should be said there was a small acoustic drum used a few minutes in ;-)

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

I had a membership for 12 months, my main man, suffering through that execrable vomit shit bum turd pus-filled bullcrap many times, which gradually became more infrequent.

Re: Cover Band Drummists - How accurate are you?

Usually not accurate at all these days. My band plays quasi lounge music so we have lounge-ised many songs. If I played our songs like the original drummers you would not hear the rest of the band!

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

Maybe a Buddy Rich transcription or some other simple beginners' thing that I don't have to think about. After all, it's not ladylike to show off ... now let's see whose irony detectors are on the...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Yes, a good example, Duncan - the guy's brilliant! He's essentially playing a complex hybrid instrument. Obviously a significant learning curve to reach his level of skill.

I no longer feel...

Re: "Spice up your life" :)

Cool. Another good video. Subscribed! The drums sound great too.

I've always liked LF contributions to beats. It's so habitual for me with my homespun technique that I have to concentrate to...

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

Nicely articulated, Lar. Ideally we'd just follow our ears and genre would be irrelevant, but that doesn't account for genre-specific vocabulary and player expectations of a drummer. Harder than it...

Re: Anger, dismay and confusion

Lar, you are not someone I would think of as someone to be disappointed with your drumming! I remember something you said to me when I posted my playing and was self critical.

You said that if...

Re: Annoyed and disappointed with myself

Ups and down, we all have them to varying degrees. If you're feel bad about playing ATM, I recommend doing something else and get your mind off it. From five or so years on this forum this seems to...

Re: The body-snatchers

Purdie. Ringo. Bonzo. There's Charlie. Karen Carpenter. Steve Gadd. Steve Jordan. Moonie. Aynsley Dunbar at times.

It is kind of odd, come to think of it. Be a damn sight cooler if it was real...

Re: Annoyed and disappointed with myself

+1 to Uncle Andy's observations.

As another unmic'd kit player, if I can't generate enough volume I flip the LH stick and play with the butt end. Hitting consistent rimshot backbeats is a bit of...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Musicians play music live, either composed or improv. DJs present pre-recorded music to other people. Some people fit more than one of these categories.[/quote]

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Thanks Evolving Machine - you covered everything for me. When I started out it was fashionable to dampen the hell out of everything. That was the "pro" sound every drummer I knew was trying to...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Hmm, are 70s covers really all we want to play?

Live local-level rock bands are not allowed to be original, unconventional or to play non-dance music unless they are brilliant or riding the wave...

Re: Is this suspicious?

A question about piracy. What do you guys think of people selling their old CDs? Should this be disallowed because the artist gains no benefit? How does it differ to the spammer? (legit product or...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Playing an acoustic kit requires a mix of the physical and mental.

Playing sequencer requires a lot less physical skill but needs a lot of mental skills not used in acoustic kit playing.

Re: Okay, if all tone comes "from the player's hands"

Hands certainly do have something to do with the process of tone production. Feet too.

Re: Worst song ever

Re: Worst song ever

You know what really cheeses me off? The "music" played in gyms. I'd be a lot fitter if they played real music. It's totally offal!

I'd even rather They Built This City and Final Countdown!
