Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


It gets annoying when you hear the lack of creativity
in todays modern songs. The fills are so predictable.
They have to have more skills than just two single strokes on each drum!

And in concerts, they only show the drummer for 20 seconds on tv
through out the WHOLE show!! WHY?!?!

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


ah something i missed, when gigging with my old band, there were some venues that had amazing equipment for guitarists, bassists, vocalists, but the drummer gets something thats falling appart with no resonant heads on the toms, thats if your lucky to get more than 1.
why is this! we only play the most awesome and important instrument in the band.

i also dont like it when (and i will probably get slaughterd for this) a drummer uses both feet when blasting, i used to but now i have learnt to single foot it i dont know it somehow puts me off bands that use 2 feet.
i also dont like it when drummers use triggers to cheat by tapping and still get an explosive sound, im not anti triggers infact im triggering my bass drum soon but i see tapping as cheating. this is because i discovered george kollias (goes the same for the blasting thing).
My last one is the biggest, if you play a gig with bands of mixed genres and like me, happen to be in a death metal band, people that turn to you and say "thats not drumming"
how can you blast with one foot? what speed blasting are you doing that you're able to do that?

my pet peeves:

1. bad techies.
2. travis barker, the dude ticks me off with the way he swings his arms. i know some people love him, say what you will, but he annoys me so bad.
3. my hi-hat stand. it rattles haha.

To me i now find it easier to do that now i have learnt, well after a year of practice i can now blast it up to around 260, its helped me get faster on my feet by doing it this way.
if you want to see the guy i discovered it from check out George Kollias-Aeons of Burning Galaxies on youtube.

another pet hate is when playing gigs and they only mic up the bass drum.

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


Well heres some of my pet peeves...
- Travis Barker, he acts like hes the best drummer is the world and everybody automatically loves him. Glad to see im not alone on that one
- People who think playing drums is easy, then they hit one of your drums and say "see? anyone can do it" that really gets on my nerves
- Beatles drumming, I could play all of their songs pretty much a week after I started playing haha
- double bass pedals that cost $750 when they probably only coast $100 to make
- Small drum sections in music stores
- When my drums ring..
- When something breaks or falls over/slides across the floor as I'm playing
- My high school marching snare.. it's 9 years old and my school wont get new ones and they're falling apart
- Music videos with 20 seconds of video of the drummer (and even though this is unrelated I hate it when the dont even show the bassist.. he/she's on the band too!)

Well that's a lot of complaining but im glad to get it out of me

Re: Any pet peeves related to drumming?


as weird as it seems, i hate it when drummers are either not creative AT ALL...or over exaggerating in their playing.

1) People blast beating with two feet. Do it properly.

2) People who try to gravity roll, but can't.
3) People who trigger their snare(probably for the reason above)

4) Jamming with a guitarist, and finding out he's one of the MILLION 'Deathcore'/'metal' guitarists as soon as he plays the first note.
