Re: Drum tab

Re: Left hand: uneven strikes & poor grip. Advice needed

Re: Steve Reich

I've been a fan of Steve Reich's music since I was a teenager back in the 1970's. He would have concerts in large lofts in Manhattan. Some friends and I would go to them on Friday or Saturday...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I do not speak acronym, what are ? I have the idea that these are software devices, if so how would that be a way to know what the decibels were ?

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I have to say, that since that day, I stopped being a fan of that band (Deep Purple) and ignored anything they would contribute to the overall musical universe. I guess it all turned out for the...

Re: How LOUD were the classic rock bands??

I saw Deep Purple at Avery Fisher hall in NYC, it must have been about 1972. They were originally supposed to play in the larger Philharmonic Hall, but for some reason Philharmonic Hall had to...

Re: How do you measure a snare for a snare bag?

It is true what Winston said. But, the only thing I would add is that if you have a snare drum that has some odd hardware you may want to go over sized on the bag. For example I have two Rogers...

Re: Containment unit drum kit

Re: Containment unit drum kit

I like it. The kit is great, and the beginning drummer is also great. A nice way to get into drumming. He built his own kit, and enjoys playing it.

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

I used to break them all the time when I was growing up and using the standard snare chord that was sold at the local music shop. I tried the plastic straps but I do not like them, they have a...

Re: Bo rants!

Re: Bo rants!

I'm not making an excuse for this behavior, but I think a lot of this type of behavior was more common in the past than it is now. Or maybe it is regional, I grew up in Brooklyn, and people just...

For the first fifteen years of my playing I had problems tuning my drums. I could not get the drums to sound as good as I wanted them to. I eventually settled on a method I got from some recording...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?
