How about when you get the coolest thing you ever been able to pull off, but you weren't recording it, and you'll never remember it again...

Talking Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


Ha, ha, I sohh relate to this thread!

ded 548, where is the audience when you need them!!

Eli, my high hat walking away from me was when I had my kit sitting on my drum rug, so I was puzzled why that still was happening.
As I never had this problem before when using the rug I was well and truly confused.
Later on I found out that the "flow" in the weaving of the rug lays in a certain direction, and that one time I had swivelled the carpet around a 180 DEG.
Now I am thinking of marking the feet of my kit on the carpet so this cannot happen anymore, whatdoyathink?

Cheers and happy drumming,

Harry

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


haha. good question slingerland. you, my friend, have wielded the can opener for the worms now haven't you? i could list things that bother me, but i try rather to focus on things that please, interest, and challenge me.

BUT, since you asked, it bothers me to no end that for every new metal/hardcore band in town, there is a new drummer. and it seems to be with the utmost consistency that their primary focus is playing double bass and blast beats as fast as they possibly can. it never ceases to amaze me that it is though their speed on these two very elementary rythms will prove themselves among their peers and perhaps even the musical gods. what they fail to realize is that there is little to no creativity in the beats when used in a monotonous manner that they have established. though the rythms are not particularly interesting to the ears, if played well are very difficult at bpms upwards of 280, so these new drummers merely butcher them and do nothing but makes fools of themselves.

sorry for the rant. i needed to get it out. haha. and i can't deny that at my early experiences with drumming perhaps involved the same sort of behavior that i now abhore.

B Lord

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


Ya, being critical of other drummers is mean-spirited but it can also be a wake-up call. I moved my drums in front of closet door mirrors and unfortunately saw myself do a wacky facial expression.

That reminded me of the rock drummer I saw who came off being oh soo dramatic and stupid. He was playing single notes on a floor tom (I think the song was "Hold Your Head High") and he had his ear practically on the tom with his face tilted towards the audience (it was a tiny club and I was about 6 feet away from him). He made a painful, constipated expression on his face for us all to see with pursed lips, like "ooo I'm the best, I'm rockin this song, nobody can do what I'm doing, I'm a rock star, people come from all around to hear my brilliance."

I like the gremlin tangent of this thread too. I had forgotten about getting my bass drum beater stuck in my bell-bottom pants. Ha, that's a good one!

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


Some pet peeves........any instrument that isn't taken care of, touchy feely people...those that just cant resist touching your equipment ( with remarks like...Your cymbals are so shiny, how do you keep them so shiny), musicians that do not comprehend dynamics, and yes the.... if a song needs more than a single stroke roll...then PLEASE add something....don't just..."Thumpthdrum".

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


The fact that I can go into any music store and try a hundred guitars, but not find five drumsets to try in a local store.

How much time the drum mags spend on sounds of drums based on woods, heads, tuning, drum brands, drum sizes, plies, mounting hardware, etc., etc., only to find that most recordings change all those sounds using ProTools or some trigger. Or that the producer brought in a dozen snares and the famous drummer with the big endorsement deal didn't even use their own drums.
