Re: Drum finishes - a natural debate

Re: What makes it real?

Some have talked about manufacturing differences and ageing so snobbery isn't the only reason, though buying positional goods is a national pastime ...

I'd agree that that motivations are often...

Re: Drumming someone to sleep :-)

The way I see it, it's about whether you can create a lullaby with drums, and if so, how. This would also border on meditation music too. Drumming to relax rather than excite.

The key with any of...

Re: Decisions decisions!

Would I be right in saying there's a conflict of interest? It would seem that the Spaun, being a larger kit with a bigger bass drum, is better suited to the classic rock the band plays, but that...

Re: Are we too hard on people around here?

Yes you lot are cruel ... that's why I'm here.




Tell me about it. There are a multitude of dead threads where my post was the last. I boiled it down to:

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

Forgot those two - both very sad losses - two of the most outrageously talented vocalists in rock history.

Re: Musical artists who's death saddened you.

Many of these people died at a time when I wasn't paying attention to the news, or at a time when I didn't care for their music, or at times know about their music.

John Lennon was a big one....

No, you made it in time, BB. Thanks!




+1 for sure. My mind is still boggled at the scope of the project. This is a mind capable of running a city!

I just looked at the video - very smart...

Lazy Slightly Wobbly Drummer Woman, This is your life.

Gosh.

Henri, can you imagine how surreal it is for me to read all this? I'm not very emotional so I'm not crying, I'm smiling :)

Thanks...

I meant to ask, is Illinois known for work of this type? I'm impressed.

Re: Funny Drummer Chart

Larry, I agree that Pocket's work is luminous, like a sheet of glass in front of a light. It lets us see the light. Not everyone can do that.

But still, it's a ripoff. What do you expect from a...

Re: Funny Drummer Chart

There ya go. The tasteful use of space. No ego-driven overplaying, no mindless beating, no cliches - just intelligent use of space a la Cage. It's a statement. Kudos Xdrum.

Pocket, no offence, but...

Re: Does anyone here actually LIKE Elvin Jones' playing?

I'll tell you madness ... from comparing my skills with those driven mad by Elvin (like you) and knowing the gulf is just as great ...




It won't happen. I'm bailing before 5 figures.

Re: Busy or steady drummer?

Great track ... except for that overly flash and abstract fill JP does to lead back to the quiet passage after the solo's peak. It's like they decided to stick a bit of Buddy Rich in there for fun or...

Re: Does anyone here actually LIKE Elvin Jones' playing?

Yeah, I do. He had a raw energy that worked brilliantly with Tran, McCoy and Jimmy G. He was always very in tune with the piano. I don't understand or care about the polyrhythm stuff he does - that's...

Re: Why are metal drummers looked down on?

It's too brutal for me, Mike. I expect that my preferred music isn't first choice on your playlist either :)

Re: Why are metal drummers looked down on?
