Re: why I wring my hands in aggrivation, but still bought . . .

It's hard to beat a Ludwig snare!

Re: I jammed with people I didn't know!

That's the excitement of a jam: you never know what will happen!

It's probably not a good situation for someone who's very insecure, but it's great for building confidence, learning some new...

Re: Simple beat??? Not so much!!

Some beats are deceptively hard, others are deceptively easy... never quite figured out why!

Re: 420 musicians onstage

You do know those old jazz guys were trying to play rock... all that swing and syncopation was a result of the herb!

Re: 420 musicians onstage

Depends completely on the person. I know some players who have to be high to be 'normal', and they sound perfectly fine. It's when they're not high that the problems begin.

That's really sad.

Re: Ludwig 402

I see the first reference to 402 in 1959 (cat #60), although 6" brass snares had been a Ludwig staple for(almost)ever.

Your drum is probably aluminum (they called it Ludalloy) which replaced the...

Re: Drum store being sued

I hit large cymbals more repeatedly, over several decades, and at distance much shorter than 6 feet! Can I sue the cymbal companies?

Sheesh... anything for a buck, eh?

Re: Electronic Drum Kit Survey

I've been using electronics and kits since 1984, but I can't do the survey without a Google account.

Try SurveyMonkey where registration isn't needed, and everyone can respond.

Re: Looking for new kit with vintage sound?

Except, a new bop kit isn't going to deliver the '70s rock sound of the Slingerlands. Madman is looking for 20" kick, 12 or 13" tom, and 16" floor.

FYI, the desired sizes may be tricky to find in...

Re: Beginner (Fun) songs?

Beatles, Stones, any one-hit-wonder, and the Elvis Costello catalogue through about 1982.

Re: Musicians Union?

In order to not appear to have a monopoly or otherwise make excessive demands, the union has turned a blind eye to venues that didn't want to be "union houses", and that's how they lost their grip....

Re: Musicians Union?

Although the AFM could have jumped in, they had no jurisdiction, and the effort would have been regarded - rightly so - as very self-serving. There probably haven't been union club dates since the...

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

YES!

And... no.

Like real musicians, a drummer is subject to various things that affect one's perception of tempo: excitement, fatigue, anxiety, intoxication, frustration or anger.

There are...

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

Workable tempos are crucial to a song (and band's) success. Most songs have a fairly narrow tempo range in which they sound and feel good. A few BPM one side or the other of that range may result in...

Re: Looking for new kit with vintage sound?

The drums do sound very vintage-y. I've got 18/12/14, and 22/13/16 Club Date kits, and they're my most vintage sounding new drums.

But with due respect to Jim and his very cool shop, that price is...

Re: Musicians Union?

Much of that comes from the lack of solidarity among its members. Let's be honest, if many players over the decades hadn't agreed to work for less, we wouldn't be getting the same pay now as in the...

Re: Looking for new kit with vintage sound?

Unless you buy used, you'll be fairly limited by your budget and need to buy an imported kit. I'm not sure what some of the Asian budget lines include, but Ludwig's Club Date series has roundover...

Re: Cajons for dummers? Scandalous?

I think they're cool in the appropriate venue and musical styles. Never had the urge or need to get one though. When I need quiet, portable drums, I bring a snare and brushes, and a throne. Like Bo,...

Re: Drum tab

Learning to read, yes. But learning to write is just as important. It includes learning to listen, whose benefits cannot be overstated.

Re: Drum tab

Tabs are a shortcut, and they'll get you part of the way there. But notation is a more expressive, versatile, widely-accepted method. I've also never seen a pro write (or read) tabs, not even with...

Re: Drum tab

I'd say that most drummers try to make a part "their own" and aren't necessarily interested in copying or even referencing the actual parts. So, less demand, less availability of such drum parts.

Re: Drum tab

This might be the right opportunity to learn to write tabs - or better yet, notation - and Get Off My Cloud is a simple enough way to start.

Listening to drum parts in order to write them will...
