sound...

Re: Worst song ever

I'd say in this thread we're talking mostly about taste. As we all know, there's no arguing about taste.
I mean calling Roxette terrible and list them in the worst song thread makes me think! What...

Re: Worst song ever

I second Black Eyed Peas - I Got A Feeling. That's how this "music like" thing is done - nice example of a piece of muzak.

Any DW members in drumming dvds/videos?

There are a lot of Hudson (and other) dvds and videos out, and some of them feature
individuals of the audience in certain camera angles, or even in Q&A situations.

I wondered if some members of...

Re: groove vs chops?

I don't know why we even have to divide drumming in two seperate disciplines, groove and
chops, in the first place. I think it makes no sense.

Re: Support BENNY GREB's new DVD...

Yeah that's awesome!! Really looking forward to the DVD!!

What's interesting to notice to me is the actually very low number of supporters.
So I think all the people in those endorsement threads...

Re: AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Releasing Solo Album

I thought AC/DC kind of broke up due to illness of one of the band members (not sure who it was)?

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

I think it's a stupid idea and it doesn't exactly help one's technique and grip.

Re: Post your Zoom Q3 recordings :)

I checked it by downloading their manual on the website: no you can't use the intern mics
and line in simultaneously. Really a shame :(!

As for putting my playing up here: Maybe the day will come...

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

There's this saying that a big problem can be solved easily if you divide it into many small
problems. You're probably trying to play things that are 2-3 levels above yours, so be sure
you start...

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

On the other hand - when you stop practicing that samba that sounded so bad and you
haven't mastered the independence etc., you won't be able to play it well ever, and you
will never use it in a...

Re: My sense of time and accuracy sucks. How to practice?

I know one weak point of my timing: When I play some rather busy patterns and then
transition to a simple two four money beat, I always slow down. It's very frustrating, and
even when I practice a...

Re: Drum capo?

If you mean say for a whole song during a gig, I think with a bit routine you can just
tweak a head up a half turn or so, and at the end you tweak all screws back and hope
the drum sounds like the...

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

I love Virgil Donati's playing on the On The Virg album Serious Insects, and I think it can
be considered as overplaying.

Although - if something is "musical", "appropriate" and "beautiful", can...
