    Should I stay or should I go....

    Friends - what would you do?🤷‍♂️ Been in the same covers band for 11 or 12 years - we're pretty good,and we are all good mates,no major drama's,we play 50-60 gigs a year. But getting to rehearse and learn new songs is difficult (due to day jobs) and it's gone a bit stale. Plus I do ALL the...

    Everybody's Kit Looks Cooler Than Mine

    I've always managed to get my kits set up comfortably AND looking good (to my eye at least) but it is a trial and error process and consequently I now have one of almost every type of clamp/arm/attachment ever produced! :ROFLMAO:

    Can anyone name that drumkit?

    How many mics does it take to record a drum kit....... Hilarious when you consider it will probably be cleaned and quantisized to a point where it doesn't sound much like what he's actually playing anyway!!

    Polarizing bands/singers.

    I don't get the Nickleback thing - because they couldn't be MORE middle ground....they're not great,they're not terrible -they're just ....ok. They don't evoke love or hate or any emotion really imo....unless 'meh' counts ?

Now I play double pedal on one...

    "Gospel Chops"...I just don't get it.................

    I think in this day and age there are two different markets, 1) Collaborative music for the pocket grooving money beat players= gigs in a band setting. 2) Youtube/exhibition/clinic's for the technical chops monsters= gigs from those avenues. As the world moves on maybe type 2 will overtake type...

    Drum shaming..

    You have to allow yourself to be 'shamed' - you can choose whether other peoples opinion of your ability to do 'whatever' bothers you. I'm not ashamed I can't play 11/8 (For example) I don't feel like a lesser drummer cos I can't play 11/8 I've no desire to play 11/8 - I'm not impressed by it...

    Musician's Equipment Inventory List

    Simple Excel spreadsheet for mine - got my local store to corroborate all my values on a letter headed quote for replacements. Insurer was happy with that. Turns out the £10k kit in a £2k car for a £60 gig thing is me......... Insurance costs me the equivalent of 2 gigs a year.

    Double pedal question

    Aahh ok....i get it. If the slave pedal gets nudged inwards ,wouldn't the cable go slack though?? If the play isn't in the cable - how come remote hats lag so much? 🤷‍♂️
