Re: Hiromi trio gig report. Simon Phillips, Anthony Jackson

Thanks for the review, Andy. Very entertaining. You write well. Ah, she'd only come to Oz!

Re: Songs with fast / tricky single bass drum patterns

Lots by John Bonham. Whatta foot!

Re: Competition - early heads up for forum members :)

Like Larry, I can vouch for what lovely instruments Guru snare drums are - their sensitivity and versatility.

Very generous prize, Andy! The next biggest prize I can remember here was the $50...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

Oops, it probably should have been in the unpopular opinions thread :)

You can blame my ears - it's their fault!

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

Tony and Todd, I agree. If a take is kept then chances are it's what the band / bandleader / producer wanted, in which case it's just "busy" rather than "overplayed" (barring rushing due to...

Re: Call and response audience participation

For sure. Many years ago I was in one of those crowds yelling the same stupidity. It's strangely cathartic :)

Another example that comes to mind is Sting's "eyyyo" chant.

Re: Call and response audience participation

There's a famous one that happened spontaneously at a show and became and institution - every crowd does the same chant when they play this song ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_py6WbMV1k

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

PFOg, maybe it's not that we're disgruntled but glad to have a chance to air views we'd be hammered for otherwise?



Excellent unpopular comments - I hate you already (kidding :)

No one would...

Re: Did Bill Bruford stop practicing for a while

Horses for courses. I thought his playing on Larks' Tongues, SABB and Red was outstanding. He was deeply influenced by KC percussionist Jamie Muir, who at the time was part of the British...

Re: Could have been awkward ...

+1. Imagining being in my 20s and having my Mum playing drums in a band with my friends - priceless!

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I started losing interest in Uncle Frank after Live in New York. I got sick of all his puerile shit. I find I only like a few phases of his career. Apart from the first album I found his early stuff...

Re: Drumming Karma

I've always loved the Doors and John Densmore's style. Over the years various of my bands have played their songs - Roadhouse Blues, Take It as It Comes, Break on Through and Love Me Two Times come ...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I missed this until kristy's reply. Sounds like the producer was being glib. I imagine he'd agree that Ringo's crashes in A Day in the Life and Good Morning, or Bill Bruford's trash cymbal on One...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

That raises an interesting point. Is the point of recording to create a faithful reproduction of a performance or to produce the most satisfying audio output possible? I am a fan of "cheating"...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

How could I forget that old chestnut? "Are you in a band?". Usually followed by "Do you play gigs?"

Re: Indulge me, I'm feeling happy about my band

Madge, in every band I've been in at some stage I've felt so dissatisfied with how things are going I've wanted to leave. That's relationships. The hard part is knowing whether the issues will...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

If you quantise you have still be very close. To my ears, if a player is close enough to quantise without glitching then the quantising will make the performance less enjoyable, unless it's...

Re: Band leaders

I've not given it a moment's thought.

In my current band I record practices and distribute, and do posters when needed. Our bassist and keys player do the hustling. Our guitarist provides the...

Re: What are your stories of when people found out you are drummer?

Yes, that's a common one - and it's almost always a male friend of relative. From memory, only once did I hear someone say they had a female friend or relative that played.

Another common reply...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Here's an unpopular opinion, I have no problem with the muted sound of worn sticks. I play 'em until they are pretty stuffed - same with heads. I make minor adjustments along the way as the sounds...

Re: Other musicians' view of drums.

From a tuned instrument point of view, if the drums are not doing anything wrong, they tend to treat the rhythmic basis of a tune as a given and then work on the challenges of coordinating with the...
