Re: DAVE WECKL - The thread about Dave

Weckl is definitely one of the best (and deadly accurate) at this kind of thing. It’s something I’ve always wondered myself, he really seems to get way inside a tune, especially syncopation-wise. I don’t know about Weckl specifically, but I do notice the players who can “sing” synchopation well seem...

Re: Can we just talk Gretsch drums a bit.

I have 4 Gretsch kits. My favorites are NOT the flagship USA Custom. I have Gretsch New Classic, Brooklyn, Broadkaster (2016), and USA Custom (mid 2000s) kits. To my ears the Brooklyn is the most versatile in terms of tuning range. Broadkaster is a bop kit and sounds good tuned up high, which is whe...

Re: Show me your Drum Room!

I built this room in my garage last year. I've messed around with how it's configured, so there's some different ones of different kits, but here's some pictures. The room is about 10' x 17' with sliding panels in between two sides; a "control" side with my mix desk and a "kit" s...

Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

Vinnie has always been like that, and people kept hire him for what he brings on the table, he's unique, the man never stopped working with everybody giving full energy as soon he's behind the drums, since when now ? From the same show, just awesome !!! It was at Le Café, possible ? http://www.yout...

Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

To be fair, I think Weckl is just in a better place to dictate the engineering of his recorded drum sound than Vinnie because he’s not recording with near as many different artists or in such diverse studio environments. I think Weckl is often either engineering his own drum sound or working with pe...

Re: Taking the Anti-Piracy Argument Back From the Music Industry

I did get the book, but couldn't go on after the introduction. That guy writes as if every single thing with the industry is Conservatives' fault. Trump this, Aynd Rand that, Jest fucking Christ. I couldn't give a rat's ass for either political option, they're all hacks, and that's why I preferred ...

Re: Taking the Anti-Piracy Argument Back From the Music Industry

Incredible book and a must-read for anyone creating music or trying to earn a living through the arts. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51JlpTr1bzL._SX319_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg Did anybody read this book? It's superb. It looked interesting when Paul first posted it a while back so I ...

Re: Musicality

The way a drummer feels time is a big one I think. Also what they hear in music and how attuned they are; what they key in on. It's different for everybody I guess. I asked a similar question of a guy I studied jazz with recently. How do you 'learn' to interpret music well? His answer was that it's ...
