Re: Bad drumming days

Karaoke and new start on percussion

Just thought I'd drop in and say hello - I think it's been almost 3 years now since I sold my drumset - it was too loud for my neighbors as I live in a trailer park. I've always played guitars and...

Re: Execution

You actually said it yourself, if the feeling is not there, even if the notes are right you're not feeling it and so your not there - if you're feeling it and it still wasn't right, you played...

Re: Execution

Maybe more practice on that specific fill in the song along with the song until it feels comfortable. I agree with Polly about the block between what you want to do and what you can pull off when...

Re: Practice- To book or not to book

Feel who you are when you practice and you will be your own best teacher, its already there. Kind of Zen I know but I believe it. You're trying to learn from others but find out who you are from...

Re: Sum yourself up

Ok, I'll take a stab at it. I've really been playing off more than on since I've been about 20 which is when I started. I also play guitar and keyboards and creatively on those instruments I'm...

Re: Anyone NOT want to be a pro?

I've been playing on and off since about age 20 and am satisfied at over 50 now to just keep drumming as a home hobby I enjoy. I played back in the nineties in four different bands and though it had...

Re: Drummers who are great to watch

I checked out Thomas Lang as I haven't seen a lot of his stuff. From that one vid it was suggested to check out Mike Mangini and Dave Weckl. I'm already familiar with Weckl, incredible player. These...

Re: what does being "good" mean?

You're right - it's all about feel. When you feel it you'll put everything in the right place and it will fit.

Re: Other people stifling you

Reminds me of a girlfriend I had years ago that I used to take along fishing. She'd sit on a rock while I was out in the river making casts and all of a sudden I'd hear "BORING!!!" come out of her...

Re: what does being "good" mean?

I think it's all about how you express your creativity and whether that comes across to touch others. If you asked me to sit down and play the piano or perform with my keyboard on a gig, well that's...

Re: Bad Days

I think when it isn't with you, it probably isn't going to be there and you'll know it and accept it. Putting yourself there to play is the most important thing, and then you'll get the green lights...

Re: Favorite SIMPLE beat

That's a worthy goal to work towards - the 16ths on the hihats (especially at faster speeds), I have trouble with it myself so mix it up a bit - another thing to work on in 2010.

Re: Musicians without Honor

Guess you just can't be too careful, even with other musicians who you would think would identify with you and so have your back, but I guess it's the same percentage across the board that would...

Re: I miss Pollyanna

I always enjoyed her...
