Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

If it's true, it doesn't surprise me. Corporate behavior is not going to win the hearts of people. It's a cut-throat world, and the less you know about what really goes on, the happier the...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I guess I'm a #6 with a lot of qualifiers. I am working on it a lot lately, but not because I love it or can really use it that much in the musical situations I play in. I work on it because it's a...

Re: Snare drum Olympics - help needed - opportunity!

Bermuda, you can make it up to me by somehow including my real name in a Weird Al song or video in the next few years.

Seriously, congrats on the purchase of this amazing instrument! And...

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

Three Rod Stewart songs. Doesn't matter which three. But all three will be Rod Stewart songs.

Re: Snare drum Olympics - help needed - opportunity!

I would buy this, Andy. I've been waiting to pull the trigger and I think this is the perfect excuse to do so. Just let me know what's needed.

Re: The constantly changing drum room

I'm sure you've told us before, but I can't remember, so I'll ask: Did the Reference Pures come with the mirrored bass reso? I don't normally care for those but it looks fantastic on the black set...

Re: Brush comping question


I don't have a tripod for my phone, but I rigged something to try and show it. Sorry the angle is so poor. I just tried to focus on the kinds of comps you mentioned with the + accents.

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

How Long, the 70s tune by the band Ace. The hi-hat part is deceptively hard to make feel good.

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

Full disclosure: I'm divorced.

I never found that my music was an issue with my ex-wife or any other long-term partners. But that said, music is non-negotiable for me. I wouldn't get very far...

Re: Rick James' Super Freak breaks

Yeah, I'm hearing breaks on the + of 4 and then the fill in the last bar starts with an 8th note rest, then it counts +2+3+4 with a S-K-K-S-K-K pattern.

Really weird. The more I listen to it, it...

Re: How our perspective changes

Yeah, I made a fierce racket and never wondered if people didn't like it. I thought it sounded awesome, so why wouldn't they? I had to have put my folks through hell. I practiced in my bedroom,...

Great to hear from you, Andrew. I just mentioned your blog on another thread and asked if anyone knew where you'd been; I guess I have my answer! Welcome back.

Andy, if you think you want to do it, that means you already know you do.

I wouldn't want to be as busy as you, but that just tells me we're wired differently. You probably couldn't have it any...
