Re: VINNIE - The thread about Colaiuta

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 ...

Re: Adler Method

I think it's more about how than what. Keeping a log is always key. That way you easily see what you're working on and the connection with other stuff you do will be much more clear as well giving chart of progression that works over any length of time or daily effort. Is there a change in your pla...

Re: DAVE WECKL - The thread about Dave

Not sure if this was posted here before but there's too many pages for me to figure it out so whatever. I like how how Chick, Patitucci, Gambale, and Merienthal (no idea if I spelled all those correctly) are all chill as F that mullet Weck is basically owning every note they improvise. [youtube_http...

Peter proves that "it ain't the arrow, it's the Indian" on a DW kit... sweet Jeebus what a monster.
