Re: Tempo...Are you rushing or dragging? - New film

Saw this flick last night. All I'm going to say is turn off your drummer brain. The story serves itself well and the extremeness is to be taken with a grain of salt. Think of it like a sports movie with a really tough coach. Despite the horrid on-screen drumming (er... pretend drumming) that doesn't...

Re: Bill Stewart live

Why does it matter if he's gay? Who gives a shit- listen to the man play (beautifully, no less!)!

Re: Hello, again.

Peter! Glad to have you back!

Perhaps my thread on taking time off from playing might be in your interests?

Cheers!

Re: Taking time off from playing...

The key is to be listening to good music (with good drummers) and thinking about playing while you take time off from the drums. This reinforces things that you want to play well or want to add to your drumming vocabulary, while diminishing the aspects of your playing that you no longer identify wi...

Taking time off from playing...

For various reasons, including not being able to afford a practice space, career changes, my own perspective on music and the music business (or lack thereof) life events in general, etc, I haven't been playing a lot lately, which is something I've brought up a bit before usually in the Weekend Chat...

Re: Ebay/CL deals... Stuff for sale.

http://www.guitarcenter.com/snare-drum-clearance-g5568t1.gc?icid=401814 I'd be weary of the value of the discounts here. Having worked at GC, a lot of these are just at standard 'sale' prices. If you're going to buy one of these snares, I'd go to a store in person and see how badly the want to get ...

Re: DAVE WECKL - Recent activity & Videos

Looks like he's got the second rack tom mounted as a floor tom:



Wonder if it was too deep of a drum for it to be placed in a comfortable spot, so he just said 'sod it' and mounted it to his right...

Re: DAVE WECKL - Recent activity & Videos

Welp. Just got an official Stalkbook notice from Dave Weckl that my video has been taken down due to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Granted, it's not a big deal that the video has to be taken down, but... hm. Anyway, I've since reached out to him (or his staff, whomever reads the emails) with...

Re: DAVE WECKL - Recent activity & Videos

Caught the new band at the Iridium while I was in New York over the weekend. Early show, this past friday night. This band obviously has chemistry and are stellar musicians. Tom Kennedy was superb, as was Makoto. Dave was ferocious, but to be honest- I could have done without the sax (as much as I e...
