Re: worth it?

I think it's pretty bloody obvious it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks mate.

Why bother asking? You already know what you're going to do. Just up and do it.

Re: More creative drumming with a cape on?

Before I can determine the true cape to creativity ratio. I need to know, am I getting my gear after I've run away or is my mother?

Re: More Creative on a Larger Kit

Hey great thread..........for my seven year old.

I might send her over. The logic is right up her alley. If it ain't black, then it just HAS to be white, yeah? :-)

Re: worth it?

Staggering thread.

Every time I genuinely think I can no longer be surprised at what goes down at this place.......along comes another example to prove me wrong.

Re: Practicing on a Pillow

Have done in the past. Always found it to be a good wrist workout. Now days I prefer to use a Moongel practice pad when I want to work on a surface that offers little to no rebound. I alternate...

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

The reputation of management to uphold their end of the bargain has always been far more important to me than the reputation of the venue itself.

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

Every once in a while my shoelace comes undone. When it does, I'm more inclined to just tie it up again rather than replace the laces with velcro. I feel the same way about the odd errant stick.

Re: WTF!

Someone has hacked the site and thrown that up as a piss take, surely? There's no way that nimrod would've generated six and a half thousand Euro just by asking for it. If it were really that easy,...

Re: Open handed technique

No it doesn't clarify. But it wasn't really meant to. It was intended to highlight how confusing trying to define open handed playing as only being open when the non-dominant hand is playing that...

Re: Open handed technique

Look, the best we can do is hold our assertions up to some scrutiny and see how they fare.

Just so that I'm clear, your assertion is that to play "open" handed, one must be using their...

A door is still open regardless of whether it's pushed or pulled. It is open simply because it is no longer closed. The hands are still open regardless of whether the right or left hand is leading....

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

For sure. Minimalism = creativity. Everyone knows that. It only took me 397,385,190 of those threads to be convinced of it. But small kits trump big kits. Banging away on a tin can with one stick...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

Oh it exists alright. I make it this would be about the 397,385,192nd thread we've had on this debate. Only trad grip versus matched grip and heel up vs heel down have had more air time.

A big part of the problem though Larry. I get why you're leaving them out, but in doing so we get no context. Without knowing the context of who you think is overplaying and where you think they're...

Re: Where should I go?

Challenge yourself with a good teacher. Get some lessons. Start touching on the things you can't do but would like to.

Broaden your horizons. Get out of the church and start playing with some...

I've seen it done. Drum sounded alright from where I was sitting, but it was mic'd up and no doubt EQ'd as well. Why not slap some on and try it. Only way you're gonna know.
