Re: Your midweek smile :)

You could fit two of him in that bass drum! The little uns these days are amazing. Give it twenty years and you'll have babies playing Vinnie licks before they're toilet trained!

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Philippe (? sorry, bad memory :), I agree with a lot of advice given here about:

1. Taking a break to freshen up
2. Finding someone to jam with / find a band etc.

It seems to me that, like me,...

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Good to see you, old bean!

Have to take your word on that one - sounded pretty jazzy to me but I'm pretty big on repetitive figures :)

Re: hi hat dis-assembly

Hi hat stands are a pain in the arse. You either have this inconvenient long thing and fiddly breakdown and set up.

I have not broken down a hat stand since 1975 but I'm no example for anyone :)

Re: Simon Philips playing jazz

Hi stranger - I was thinking Tony Williams too :) Not being so versed in jazz, I figured it was the low tuned toms.

He is more at home in this set than the last time I heard him play straight...

Re: EGO's

That is actually a big ego reacting to being incapable of feeding itself with big achievements, hence the control freak angle (a sign of extreme insecurity). I played with a bassist who was like...

Re: Name that rhythm

Didn't know it was called that - perfect name for it.

Former Genesis drummer, John Mayhew, was criticised at the time for his flat tyre shuffle in The Knife, which was thought to be clumsy. I...

Re: Name that rhythm

Thanks guys. I was shocked and saddened by his response too, and felt really guilty afterwards in an "eggshell skull" kind of way.B oth Ken and Lutz were real assets to the forum, both generous...

It must be, Lazza! Everyone is congratulating you on a good idea and I don't think anyone has clicked the link to the original thread and covering old ground. Maybe due to my namesake's...

Re: Name that rhythm

I'd still call it a money beat, just that he's playing linearly with his hands.

Re: Playing Fast?

Pocket is right. Forget speed when playing music and focus on making the music flow and feel right.

Sometimes you need speed to do that but what you describe sounds like the fast fills you are...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Great post, Caz, and good to have such a relevant anecdote. It makes sense that those at the top of their field have bigger fish to fry than superficial distractions.

Re: Not denting heads

I think it's largely the angle of the dangle. If you hit down into the drum, especially with mounted toms not tiled back much, then it's easy to leave dents in the head.

Sticks with small, round...

Re: Recording technique

I've laid drums down first with a drum machine and a scratch track. I personally don't like it because I enjoy melding with the band.

You don't have much choice if you're home recording yourself,...

Glasshopper ... people, worms, donkeys ... each life form is one face of the Earth's expression. We are all one ... unless one of those creepy crawly bastards gets into the house :)

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

As John said, how can you not stand back an look?

Musical instruments are beautiful things and my Gurus are eye candy, with pride of place in the middle of my lounge room like a feature sculpture.

Re: How do you feel the day after a gig?

Relieved and looking forward to chilling out. Being retired, most days I treasure not having to be any place at any time.
