Re: Coping with a bad recording session

Thanks for the kind words Duncan :)
I love that clip of Vinnie.


Update: I sat down with the bandleader yesterday. We had a gig scheduled this weekend and I'm off of it. I don't think they're...

Coping with a bad recording session

Today I had a session. It was going to be smooth sailing. 4 or 5 tunes, cut live, all pro, fun stuff. Some moments were better than others, but overall I felt like I wasn't giving them what they...

Re: Blushda - lR flam or rL flam in the beginning?

The second one is the "Tony" way and the way I learned the lick. It's a left flam drag that doesn't alternate.

Re: Who won the Weckl/Colaiuta/Gadd drum-off?

I won. Because I got to watch and learn from all three of them at the same time.

Erskine: Class is now in session

Check out Peter Erskine's effortless burning from just a few weeks ago. I wish this video was a lot longer than 3 minutes.

I especially love the 3...

Re: lastest Johnny Rabb Videos

They sound phenomenal. I haven't seen a new video of Johnny Rabb in quite a while. Unsurprisingly, he sounds phenomenal too! Thanks for sharing.

Re: The hardest gig yet

Wow sounds like a killer. Let us know how it goes! Subdivisions is one of my favorite Rush songs.

Re: Ludwig Supralite

Deep drums can be very sensitive, and shallow drums can have plenty of body. If it were me, I would error on the side of having too deep a snare. You can always tune/muffle differently and change...

Re: Endorsements backwards?

I liked your post, but it was Vinnie who designed the A Customs around 91/92. Dave's signature cymbals are the HHX Legacy and Evolution lines

Re: Endorsements backwards?

What do you mean by that? If two people engage in a business deal, they trade things they already have in exchange for things they'd rather have, that they feel are more valuable. Both parties...

Re: Touring Fees

The two bands I mentioned that are charging $40000 and $70000 aren't on the radio. One of them has had a few hits (and they charge the lower amount!) and the other never has been as far I know. The...

Re: What is classified as professional gear?

I partially agree with Dr_Watso; it's not about the brand... or the sound. A lot of gear sounds good, but not all good sounding gear is professional-grade in my opinion. If you can rely on it as a...

Re: How come Bass amps usually go on the left of the stage?

Come to think of it, nearly all the bands/gigs I've been on, the bass player has stood to my right. Interesting observation... I don't really care which side they're on, but one thing I personally...

So last night I saw a discussion on facebook between a local promoter and a friend of his. A band coming through wanted $875 for a show. He said this was highway robbery. Now, he didn't name the...
