Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

I usually try to book bars with bad reputations. Unless the reputation is that nobody shows up. Sometimes a nice fight fight in the crowd makes for a great show.

BTW, whats this pay in advance...

Bad hi-hat recording

Its very rare that I listen to a song and can pin point specific things that sound wrong to me. Im not usually that analytical. However, on the new Seether record the hi-hat sound is terrible. Bad...

Re: I Want to Gig!

I guess the music scene in your paticular area has quite a bit to do with the availability of bands. I put an ad on CL a few years ago and got 5 or 6 responses within the first week. Between that and...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

Im surprised nobodys mentioned endorsemets yet. Its not an official DW thread without somebody asking about an endorsement.

Re: Gigs - like buses

I though you meant that you gotta watch out for them or they will run you over.

Congrats on the gigs. I know they can be hard to come by.

Re: Mapex saturn iv exotic ir tama starclassic maple

Mapex Saturn is the answer to all questions in the universe.

If you have any further questions refer to the "Drummerworld Dictionary" that should cure your quest for information.

Re: The Stick Trick that Confuses All of Your Friends

The trick that confuses my friends is the one where I go to hit a cymbal and the stick flies across the room. Gets 'em every time.

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

Is Shemp a verb in the DW dictionary? I know Saturned is and I'm pretty sure Bo's avatar is as well.

I think you should define a "thinly veiled" marketing technique.

Re: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

The answer is three, but I wonder why such a simple question from a pro drummer.

I have been playing in original bands around the country for twenty years and unless I was on tour I have almost...

Re: Pearl VBL vs Tama Superstar Hyperdrive

I play a superstar hyperdirve and I think it is a great kit. It has been my gigging/touring kit for the last 5 years and it has held up perfectly. It has been kicked, stepped on, rained on, had shit...

Re: Another Band Drama Thread

I'm already in my 40's, so I guess its too late. Read the above post about the sweet spot on vintage amps. For the type of music we play the tubes start to really saturate at around 12:00, which is...

Re: Former MEGADETH Members Nick Menza, James LoMenzo Cover METALLICA Motorbreath

I heard this the other day. Pretty cool, one of the better Metallica covers out there. I will reserve judgement until I hear their original stuff, but all in all I am glad to see Nick making music...

Re: EGO's

The guitarist in my band is a great musician and songwriter, but he is pretty much a huge prick. Its not necessarily an ego thing but its just who he is. I think some people are just wired that way....

Re: Another Band Drama Thread

I am curious what type of venues you are playing. Are you a 5 peice rock band playing to the dinner crowd at a local cafe? I think it may be time to rethink your booking. My side band is deafingly...

Re: Band Hunting

I live in Eastern CT, which only has a slightly better music scene than the moon, and I drive to Hartford for rehearsal once a week. I would say from Wilton you should be able to find something in...

Re: Deciding on Album Artwork?

I will tell you that the guys in my band fought for months about the album artwork. In fact its still a touchy subject to this day. We ultimately decided that we could all live with a picture the...

Re: Really wanky behaviour....

So I am going to give you all a metaphor that I use when I am telling people why I dont make any money from my band.

One of my other hobbies is playing in an adult baseball league. I am a decent...

Re: 10.000 hours of practice is not the magic number

Of course its arbitrary, its my opinion, thats the definition of arbitrary.

As to your point, I actually agree with you. My post was more an insight into my personality than a referendum on how...

Re: 10.000 hours of practice is not the magic number

Wow, this post makes me think that many of you have taken the fun right out of this whole thing. To sit and plan out practice routines, then schedule that time in your day, then keep a running diary...

Re: Really wanky behaviour....

So let me tell you how an original, unsigned band gets "paid" in New England. You either set up your own bar gig in which you get the door, percentage of the bar, or predetermined upfront fee. This...
