Re: First use of a click

If that's true, then Paul has a pretty amazing foot! It's able to alternate high and low taps throughout the song, staying straight even through odd time changes!

But if Wikipedia is to be...

Re: Daniel Liljekvist leaves Katatonia to "get a normal job that gets the bills payed"

I feel bad when someone needs to sacrifice something they love for the priorities of life. While it doesn't always work out, there is usually a good balance between music and real life...

Re: First use of a click

I have a great sledgehammer (effected icebell) sample, but somehow I think 8ths of that pounding in my ears would not be a good thing. :)

Re: First use of a click

Those are temple blocks (to represent horse hooves) and most likely played, and therefore not a click. It's a safe bet that the orchestra was conducted though, so there was a timekeeper besides the...

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

It's because Dave cares. That's an important and easilty detectable trait for anyone to have.

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

It's not an obligation on the drummer's part, but it's a nice thing to do if possible, rather than tell the band "you're on your own." Remember, nice guys finish first (in this business.)

If I'm...

Re: First use of a click

As mentioned, that was indeed a clave. But, that brought to mind a song I hadn't considered before... "Blackbird" by the Beatles (1968) has a metronome clicking away through the whole song! Hard to...

Re: Sending in a dep you don't know?

Like choosing cymbals, you've got to hear what they sound like!

I've chosen subs a few times on local gigs, but only after I've heard what they can do. It doesn't have to be in person, a YouTube...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

Correct on both, Frog.



Depending what I'm doing, I do like panning certain things more to the right (my stronger ear) or left. When everything is in the center, it all competes for its space...

Re: First use of a click

That Ringo loop is a well-documented fact. Besides, if you listen to just 6 or 8 bars, you can hear the repeating inflections that even Ringo couldn't keep up for a whole song.

Making a tape loop...

Re: First use of a click

A click - or track - has become the term used to describe something that regulates a performance, but a metronome provides tempo for practice purposes (or in non-conducted recordings, a metronome...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

As I said, everyone's situation will vary. I suppose I should add that everyone's comfort level varies as well. Ideally, the drummer should get exactly what he wants or needs in order to work with...

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

Everyone's situation and preferences will vary, although the goal is always the same - to make the performance sound seamless, and the drummer needs to do whatever is necessary with that goal in...

Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

Always after completing the work, yes. By "up front" I meant as opposed to part of the payment being held contingent upon the product's or its sales.

Suppose tracks are recorded, the musicians are...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

They still offer the mounting plate, but we're on our own for the 1781 holder. In good shape they fetch $75 on ebay.

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

I may be the first drummer to take Signets into the studio, and here they are!

Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

Bill's a terrific drummer and well-versed in doing tracks this way (and I can't beat his price!)

Adverstising in a drum forum is probably the best way to reach drummers, although you could also...

Re: Types of Snare Drum

The number and mass of the lugs makes a difference on all but the heaviest shells, and hoop mass and material also makes a noticeable difference in the sound.

Snares (and toms) also react...

Re: A bad kit shipped to UK?

That's a double-edged sword, as the repercussions (so to speak) online are swift and worldwide. No smart company deliberately puts themselves in that position, and when there are problems, they...

Re: No new info

True that Yamaha is best known for oak kits dating back a dozen years or so, but those are ply drums, and the N&C are (were?) a 1-ply steam bent shell. Ludwig introduced an Oak/Maple hybrid shell in...

I'm not sure how old the information is, they mysteriously say "This year" and post a pic & video from NAMM, but I don't remember the last time they were there. Maybe 4 or 5 years ago or more?

Note for note, no, but don't abandon the parts that make the song worth doing in the first place. Catch all signature fills and pushes, and specific beats (ie; don't try to straighten-out "In My...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

The spurs are the same for both 20 & 22" drums, but are mounted in slightly different places on the shell so that the height in front stays about the same on each drum.

But the spur adjustment -...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Don't take it from me simply because my relationship with Ludwig goes beyond what a typical artist would have, and that I knew about the Signets long before any here had even heard of them. Don't...
