Re: Going to shows of a band you got rejected from a good idea?

I am going to assume that you like, and obviously know, their music. With that in mind go check out the show. There might be other bands on the bill that you can network with as well. I go to a ton...

I will definitely disagree with you. There are people who can get professional sounds out of two cans and a string, these kids are not them. My advice is not to worry so much about the mechanics of...

Re: A few recording questions

Dude, it doesn't have to be perfect. If you are expecting a professional sound out of this you are going to be disappointed. Let the toms ring, let the instruments bleed over into each other, make...

Re: Funny recording experience

I have moved a snare hit or two in my days of recording. It is so much cleaner than re-recording an entire part for one hit. Unless you are recording live in a non-iso situation where your snare hit...

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

The Butthole Surfers has two drummers who played standing up. It was definitely different, but it added to the overall hallucinatory feeling of one of their shows.

Re: Tips to help me get in a good quality functions band.

The only thing I can say is you might have waited to talk to them in person. It is very difficult to judge intent or tone through text and email. talking face to face you get a much better reaction....

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

Re: Where's the best place to find a drummer for my band?

Your best bet is networking. Go to where the drummers are. Local gigs, music stores, rehersal spaces. I have never had much luck with answering ads. Most of my gigs have come from other musicians...

Re: Nick Menza

My guess is he isnt interested in coming in a fill in or tour drummer. He likely wants to be on the ground floor of something he can put his name all over. In the last ten years just about every...
