Thumbs up Let's Get it Started!


Hey everyone! I'm back (after a long enough time, I might add!)
I have gotten all my recording gear set up, I've refined my collection to a very usable selection, and I'm ready to produce quality-sounding drum tracks. That being said, I think it's high time for another friendly drum battle!
I haven't been around much recently, but last time I had a battle here (time signature battle) it was a lot of fun, and I THINK I've gotten better since then (hope, more like.) It's been almost two years, and I think anyone can join.
Some ideas for themes:
-In the style of your favorite drummer/drummers (ie. Bonham, Paice, Peart, Rich, Clarke, anyone! Mix and match as much as you want, as long as you specify)
-Another time signature battle, with mix-ups of 7-4, 9-8, 10-8, 5-4, and whatever!
-Simple set-up; that is to say, maybe just kick, snare, hats, and a crash/ride? Perhaps one tom
-Any other suggestions?

Everyone is welcome! Let's set a time, and contestants, and smack some drums!

Two more ideas:
-Playing a solo with a metronome
-Playing with a little groove, like gutar and/or bass loop. Make it yourself, or get a friend to do it!

Re: Let's Get it Started!


Drum battle you say? How does that work? I suppose I need recording equipment to play along, or can an electric kit plug in to a computer somehow?

Well you need SOME sort of recording equipment, but that by no means implies quality equipment! I've certainly done my share of crappy, one-mic recordings, with that "one-mix" being an "expertly" placed camera! Anything you have will do here!

Re: Let's Get it Started!


So what exactly is a drum battle? I think I could map my drum set onto the computer (maybe) but I still don't get this concept. To me, a battle is competitive and adversarial, but I can't imagine how those qualities would come out on drum sets. Do I just play something and then post it? If so, how does one respond to a sound clip like that?

That's basically it! We decide on a theme (optional) then everyone posts a recording of a solo they do in that theme (ie. your favorite drummer)
It doesn't necessariy need to be competitive, but we could have people vote on who they liked better, or who represented the theme the best

Re: Let's Get it Started!


Exactly as noob said. All of the participants (2 or more) would decide if they wanted to go head to head on say a cover of one particular song, or a particular genre or just a plain old solo. Then everyone videos the agreed upon material and posts it to the drum battle thread which I will create for them. There will be a poll on the thread so that everyone can vote for which one they liked the best and we will leave the voting open a specified time (you guys decide how long), but normally two weeks to a month. The drummer with the most votes wins the battle and gets a druim battle winner medal added to the info to the right of your user name. (see Inferno Exicution's posts to see what the medal looks like)

It is more of a showcase rather than a battle, but the word battle sounds cooler.
