Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

Growing up and finding out that you'll never get to use those cool licks you heard on records in your teens is like finding out that Santa isn't real. It's a blow.

Boom bap boom bap. The cash...

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

I have no practice regimen but usually play on kit and pad for a while each day.

Re: Chimpanzee drum solo, released

Too funny! I can't believe how relaxed the cat was. A truly mellow animal :)

Re: Matched Grip vs. Traditional Grip: Pro's and Con's?

Funny thing. There should be no reason why drummers can't talk about the relative merits and limitations of various grips without getting tribal about it.

But I still prefer dogs even if they do...

Re: Chimpanzee drum solo, released

Getta, I think the thing that amused me most about the dog video is the last comment left - "your holding the sticks" LOL!!

The chimp performance is interesting. He's definitely understanding...

Cats have their good points but I personally prefer dogs.

Re: What method of drum video critiquing do you go by?

Step 1: Set metronome to determine initial bpm and make spot comparisons throughout.

Step 2: Data on internal dynamics is recorded and compared with averages for the genre.

Step 3: A study of...

Re: Self Indulgent Ego Massage....

Good stuff, Squad.

If they're better players but they asked you to play, then there's something about your style and approach they like.

Re: Drummer- the only musician that can't mess up?

Agree that vocals are at least as much under the pump. A feature vocalist, especially so.

Remembering to how I listened to music when young, if the bass screws up it just seems like something is...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

LOL how much indignation can you fit in a room?

Ideally you'd add Miles, Jack Bruce, Ritchie Blackmore, Axl Rose and Keith Jarrett to sit in on the sessions - and then do a seance in the studio...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Agree completely, Jules. Still, it's good to have a few miserable old pricks around to stir the pot. His comment about half the people in the hall of fame not deserving to be there brought a smile to...

Re: Do you have your own sound?

Interesting topic and replies!

My drumming voice seems not miles from my speaking voice (and thankfully more controlled than my "singing" voice).

The delivery is usually slow and measured but...

Re: What Drum Moments Give You the Chills

I was thinking similarly, David and I'd add Bernard Purdie.

One of my favourite Gadd moments is in James Taylor live, Country Road - the passage from 3:30 is so spot on - ...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

This is a good point. Both are great rock drummers who served their band's music. Ginger's famous negativity has become a cartoon. He's cash strapped and I'm sure he's now hamming it up for...

Re: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

This Herlin Riley drum solo is just good music that's played with drums https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFvgCtomkqE

Bernard Pudie's solos tend recycle a lot of licks, but with a groove like that...

Re: Comparing ones abilities with others

I think it's a kind of insanity. I was once afflicted - compare compare compare. Oh, he/she is so good and I'm so bad. Over and over. Meanwhile, I had a chronically insecure mother who was an author...

Re: Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Having spent 5 years playing with a quiet band I can say that if you play quietly enough for people to talk, they will. Mind you, talking through my old crew's sets and talking through a Simon...

Of course she quit after the Stripes. She wasn't a drummer so such as a layperson who functioned as a drummer in a hugely successful stylistic experiment. Meg was like a de Stijl symbolic version of...

Exactly! There's some unnecessary stoking of conflict where there was none.

Re: The drummers who just go for it

It's a different time. I see videos of little kids playing today whose skills easily outdo many of my old drum heroes.

The skill bar has been raised and there's not so much happening now for...

Re: people that look like drummers

Tommy Lee looks like a drummer.

People are always surprised to find I play drums. They always assume I'm a keyboardist because I wear glasses and probably come across like a feral nerd version of...

Re: tell me the truth

I found that, usually, the worse I played the more the audience liked it - that's when I'd get compliments. I used to figure that they liked to watch the struggle, like Romans liked to see gladiators...

Re: Guru snare competition results!

I liked his backbeat, was a bit surprised at the decision to play open hats but it sounded good to me, not your standard funk approach.

Mostly I just dug his take on it in the first half, where I...
