Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

The bandleader has this self imposed thing where he thinks he has to play "Brown Eyed Girl" at every gig. I asked him to save it for requests, because someone always requests it.

We also have to...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

So you guys slow the song down if someone is dragging? Do you keep it there for the rest of the song or does it come back up in tempo? I don't think I could do that. I would keep chugging along at...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

As per Bo, I ditched cases about 4 years ago. It's so much easier. Wrapped drums are your friend.

A couple sheets of clear laminating plastic (the kind where you peel off a backing) will repair a...

Re: Questions about kick drum heads

You'd do best to measure it yourself because only you know how far you want to go to the edge. I don't think you want to deal with the collar of the head at all. You could go to a guitar center with...

Re: Naked shell porn - Old school finishing.

Not Picasso, Van Gogh. I got my artists crossed. Van Gogh. It looks like something from the mind of Van Gogh. Vincent. The guy who sliced his ear off. That guy.

Re: Naked shell porn - Old school finishing.

Sort of related, in 2009 I got a new hardwood floor, I chose Tiete Rosewood, it's pretty red. Under my rug, where the light can't get, it's the original shade. The exposed wood is easily twice as...

Better hope she doesn't join just so she can read what you write. My wife does that. Her handle is Drummerlover. She'll probably read this. Hi Nikki!

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Re: How our perspective changes

It's a real hold back to drummers, the noise thing. A lot of people cannot tolerate drums. Especially living in close quarters. I really think that's why really great drummers are not as common as...

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Man this is tough. Diplomacy. If that fails, shoes perhaps.

Sounds like bribe territory to me. You gotta pay tribute lol.

Either that or establish a precedent now that it's non negotiable....

The bass drum....looks like something from the mind of Picasso.

Re: I'm having trouble practicing

This is easy. When you are feeling that same old, 3 o'clock slump....crack open a book. You have to get out of your own head and try something from someone else's head. Instant new vista.

Keller eat your heart out.

They could be the worlds most beautiful naked drum shells. Not much I can think of comes close.

Paduak is a stunningly gorgeous wood.

Did you make the "grain arcs"...

Re: Louder with or without port?

Unported drums are a touch louder in my experience. It's just a bigger sound.

Re: Naked shell porn - Old school finishing.

I love the way the grain is arced...It reminds me of water..or movement...Stunning really.

6 hours of sanding is a lot. Your arms must feel like rubber bands.

Re: Becoming a Professional Drummer

You just have to stand in awe at the magnitude of Bill Ray's post. Another nomination for post of the year. I feel like I've been in the music business after reading that. Thank you Bill Ray.
