Any pet peeves related to drumming?


It bothers me when I hear a song on the radio and the best the drummer can come up with is a drum fill consisting of a single, bare note on a tom. C'mon! At least embellish the thing with a 2 or 3 stroke ruff to pull out the tone of the drum and make the fill more interesting!

Are there any things that bother you?

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


I have to agree there, single note tom fills piss me off! As well as damned simple drum beats with the only fill being a single hit on the crash. Such as blitzecrieg bop by the ramones.

Other things is obsessive smashing of the hi-hat when open with both sticks until the thing cracks in half or the beats become so repetitive its just plain boring. (Travis Barker =P)

Drummers with 3 bass drums, 7 toms and a 12 cymbals and never use more than the hat, snare, two basses, four toms and two crashes throughout an entire concert.

Talking Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


hi all,
I agree with all of the previous contributions to this thread, the single tom accents though when applied "in the right spot" can be extremely effective.
Think Karen Carpenter, Don Henley.

Cheers and happy drumming;
Harry

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


people touching/garbbing/holding my cymbals... not on the edge.
people who obsess over travis barker and know nothing about drums.
when my feet sleep on my bass pedals.
when a drummer at a show drops a stick.
a stick breaks(a new one especially) and you don't realize it lol.
people/drummers hitting a cymbal wrong...smashing it and not following through or just with like the tip.
drummers who never know when to shutup/play softer.
repetitive beats/patterns that are basic n sorta suck.
new drum heads/having to retune them almost all the time cause they stretch ever so slightly lol.
ummmm, there's prolly a few more but that's a nice start

I'm also disturbed by the lack of cowbell in today's songs. Mr. Walken had it right when he said, "You're gonna want that cowbell!"

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


Triggering up drums is a bit of a copout. If you're gona go electric, then do it, but don't pretend that that is your drums we're hearing just so you don't look like you're playing a peice of plastic.

We want the truth!!!!!

Sounds lame... thankfully I've never seen that.


What I really hate is when I'm playin' a real nice long peice; everything is flowing perfect and you've got a nice big lead up to an chorus... and an uncomfortable 8th of silence takes over as your stick passes right on by your crash. <= Suck.

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


use of triggers to me is like bass players using a pick. iono. if you use it for a different sound that's alright but so you can play faster/easier and not have to pluck with your fingers or be able to play ...more powerful so your bass can be heard then yea.
