Re: WERE DO I START??? *JAZZ DRUMMING*

Agreed with this...

And - go back to the beginning as part of that search. Either begin there or go backwards from wherever you start. You can't possibly understand where it's at until you know...

Re: Gretsch New Classic

I agree with this...



Don't necessarily agree with this

Re: I Need to Get Re-Motivted

Decided to take up Clarinet, Larry. My wife has one from the early 80's that is considered today to be a "highly desired" model. For 26 years all I've done is look at it and wish I did something...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

That I can recall as a young kid, probably around 7, my dad took me to see a jazz quartet: Lionel Hampton, Teddy Wilson, Louis Bellson, Ray Brown. I was too young to recall much of it, but I recall...

Re: I Need to Get Re-Motivted

I posted a similar type thread on a different forum about myself. I wasn't really looking for an answer to solve my problem, more from a question standpoint of "what do you do"?

Re: Vibes vid

Awesome, Larry - congrats on an opportunity for a whole new exploration!

Re: What makes a pro kit?

Completely and totally agree on both of these posts.

I play "pro" level kits - not to be confused with the person playing them - me. I am not close to be considered a "pro" drummer. Not by a...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

I'm sure it varies by company. I think the lines blur significantly when you compare midlevel to pro.

Re: Ever shown up to play with a new musician and realized it was a bad fit immediately?

Only once. I showed up to the audition and the players felt it necessary to play under the influence of drugs before they began. I let them know that if they decided they were going to do it while...
