Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

Re: Practice!

I've been recently practicing time and groove a lot. And clearing my mind when I'm playing and just concentrating on the music.

The latter has helped my a lot, since I sometimes think too much...

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Sorry, english is my second language, so it's a bit lost in translation'y. What I mean is that it's easier to be a drummer and record in the studio than it was before. For example that you had to...

Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Hey guys. I'm writing a research paper for my school, and I'm in the middle of gathering info. The hypotheses is that there are fewer demands for drummers generally now, than there was 10-20 years...

Re: D'Angelo - Black Messiah

Been listening to D'angelo for some years, because of Chris Dave. Really dig the dilla beats.

Re: A new drumming hero emerges!

This is something I usually did on some blues-gigs, where the people watching were dance-band people.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

Re: Playing for the song, but still leaving a bit of "yourself" on the track.

Well, if you want to be someone who sounds like everyone else, that's your choice. As for me, being successful isn't the main reason I play drums and do music, and I think that money and fame is a...

Hey me too! A bit miffed that Dennis didn't make it, but I'm perhaps one of the worlds biggest Novak fans so I'll have to make due.
