Re: So the acquisitions continue.

It sounds great. Hopefully the 6 months breakdown was unusual.

Re: Larry made it!

Nice. Hey Larry, how's the scene compare with LDS 2013, and your hotel? :)

Re: It finally happened...the snareless gig

In the 70s I had to do a couple of mercy dashes for a missing snare. I'd learned my lesson from then on until the drummer of an ex-band was unavailable for the final of a band competition and, having...

Re: This forum, meeting each other

I've met Wy Yung and Bermuda in Sydney a few years ago. and the 2013 crew on Henri's list at the LDS. I've met mostly people from the northern hemisphere and only one Aussie member.

Re: It Happened Again!!

I see it as the scourge of expecting recorded music to sound professional. My ear usually prefers the spontaneous energy of first or second takes, warts and all (as long as not too dire). If you're...

Re: Should I be upset? Would you be upset? Watch video. (Warning, big mistake in my playing)

No drama here, either.

The biggest payout of a drummer I've seen was by Dweezil Zappa of his criminally underrated drummer Joe Travers who had a brain freeze and flubbed a simple cue.

Try...

Re: Funny recording experience

Nice Laz. We can sense when it's right - sometimes.

One time my old band recorded a song with a djembe drum track. We did two takes and added vocals. I felt the djembe wasn't quite right but the...

Re: Letting go vs focusing

Trusting yourself is not just a matter of experience or internalised learning but also of temperament. We don't all have the same level of comfort with risk.

Re: Worst song ever

I agree. I've heard it only a few times but always enjoyed it.

Re: The "Jimi Hendrix of drums"

I'm guess that's Les's point. If I was to send a guitarist's work into space saying "this is the best civilisation has to offer" it wouldn't be Jimi, although I love his playing. More likely Segovia,...

Re: Nuggets of hard won wisdom

Listening is what it's all about - it's the bleedin' obvious but we all know how easy it is to forget to listen as closely as possible when we come to the drums with preconceived ideas.

Never mind...

Re: Do Youtube Drum Covers Influence What/How You Play?

On the plus side, if you didn't see the videos you'd still be none the wiser about those arrangements. You learned something.

In my experience, the more arrangements you learn, the more you pick...

Re: The "Jimi Hendrix of drums"

Jimi had rare natural talent, a musician who changed the way rock was played, and his influence stretched to fusion, prog and eventually even some pop. He had a string of followers who developed his...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

I agree, he has fantastic flow and an ear for detail. When I first saw the clip for the Abacab single on TV I remember being especially taken with his fat China groove in the bridge.

Shame about...

Re: Who "invented" the rock beat?

This is what I've been told.

From the limited amount I've heard there were backbeats played in the 40s in boogie woogie and blues groups.

Re: Harvard study of time keeping and groove

Interesting Caz. Never thought of it but errors would be fractal. Within long phase tempo variance trends there will have to be smaller phases with their own trends, and so on down to the...

Re: Thoughts On Phil Collins??

lol - that's the 80s. That decade had a corrupting influence on many bands. Its influence on prog was especially sad because the expectation was to play 3-minute pop songs with lots of four on the...

Rock drummer. No Gary Burton grip, though my kit's worth about 5x more than my car.

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

Ditto.

A couple of times I've quit bands that were only ever short term things, in my mind anyway. I've usually quit when a band starts asking more of me than I'm prepared to give. I've never...

Re: playing less and keeping time

With every beat there are tempos - too fast and too slow - where the groove starts to become mechanical (not felt), and soon beyond that point it's not functional. It's hard to practice slow grooves...

Re: Great hip hop drummers?

Second Chris Dave. What a player!

Aaron Spears and Ron Bruner Jr are serious gospel chops players.

Amon Tobin's drum programming / sampling is a good listen.

Re: Better after time off?

Makes sense to me, speaking from my position of zero expertise. You come back after a break with fresh ears. The better we listen, the better we play.
