Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Good to see some teamwork going on! Seems like they are comfortable with you :)

At one stage we were practicing Dr Who with me playing the bass with brushes while our bassist made the notes. It...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Not just marketing but ubiquity. I'm not even a gear-head but I consistently see those telltale Camco round doodads on numerous name drummer kits. Many players that others look up to use DWs.

Re: screwed up my first gig

Everyone make mistakes when they are learning. Most of us are learning all our musical lives. Remember, this doesn't just apply to drummers; your band mates no doubt had their own "learning...

Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

I'm not sure it's far to compare inanimate objects with people. Sure, I love my Gurus and would be saddened to see them go, but they are just objects. All they can do is look elegant and make nice...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Yes Uncle :) The tone of low volume sounds on drum kit are more beautiful to my ear.



Cheers Tap. Whenever I've sat at a big kit I've felt all at sea (and compelled to just play ride, kick,...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I actually agree with Tap's view but it's not a matter of skill but physics.

At very low volumes the instrument has a range of subtleties that cannot be found at higher volumes. There's also a...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

Mid 70s. Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow. A friend had scored front row seats nice and close the RHS PS speakers. Someone brought a type of ear plug wax.

The concerts going on and I'm wondering how it...

Re: Whose voice would you like to have counting on your metronome?

I want a cowbell or woodblock sound. Not a voice - and especially not a sexy voice. You need voices that cut through like Frau Farbissina or Jerry Lewis.

Re: Thanks ... I think

As an older Aussie, I call it all \chips. Chips are chips. So are French fries. So are crisps. We differentiate with either - hot chips or chips. French fries to us are McDonalds's cheap alternative....

Re: Hug a Drummer Day

I get and give hugs hello and goodbye from the band every time we catch up so it's business as usual.

Re: How were drums taught back in the day?

This resonates with me. I saw a lot of local rock, fusion and jazz groups when I was young and inevitably absorbed things from them. Being relatively isolated in Australia, I saw only a few big shows...

Re: Autumn beauty!

Andy got a kit to me in Sydney and everything arrived with no damage at all. He had everything packed within an inch of its life - it was actually quite a journey getting the stuff off :)

Love the...

Some old school teaching from the wonderful 1934 book,"Max on Swing", by Max Bacon http://mikedolbear.com/story.asp?StoryID=3064

Re: Matt Johnson reflects on Jeff Buckleys "Grace" ... great video

Thanks Ant, great interview. Matt's passion, musical maturity, attention to detail, eloquence and intelligence shine through. I related to what he said about space and working within limitations.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

The way I see it you have two poles.

Some want to hang on to the past because it's gotten us where we are today.

Others want change and progress for the same reason.

I expect it will all...

This is what I'm expecting ... you'll go in there and lay down a solid backbeat. At some point, Yolanda will smile at you, probably when you...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Onya Jim. Last time you patronised me was when I mentioned a point that Richard Dawkins raised. This time I'm just paraphrasing Sam Harris.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Thing is, opinions come first as an unbidden thought or feeling, and then people try to find a rationalisation for it. We don't choose our opinions, nor our internal beliefs (not to be confused with...

Re: Hahahahahahahaha :)

True, i find it hard to be sure when it's best to treat gently and when to be straight up. There's a saying "It's better to be kind than right" but then there's also "honesty is the best policy" ......

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Actually, I don't always much care for post-solo applause either, but it's fun to get it :)

As for dampening highly resonant drums, aside from the technical stuff previously spoken about,...

Re: What songs do you really like the drumming on?

I love Starless too. I used to try to play along with it as a young 'un but I'm sure it was appalling :) Prog's too hard for me.

At home I play along with almost anything by Steely Dan up to...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

Lazza, it looks like a "tribal" game that some musos play in response to the musically incompatible players they've come across. After all, one guitarist might think of a drummer as a ham fisted...
