  • The secret of becoming a good edrummer

    I had my brain x-rayed while I was playing a gig and the result and the reason why I play my edrums the way I do and know how to incorporate outboard gear in conjunction to get great sounds was revealed to me:

    And this is why: http://www.diamondtalk.com/forums/sh...threadid=11328

      , plenty of , and , , triggered acoustics, , and a plethora of PA blah blah freakin blah...I mean does anyone care about the specifics of pedals, speakers, processors, hardware or anything that I'm using?? :confused: Hmmm, maybe this is an appropriate place to mention that I tried out a new cymbal stand the other day...

        Does it say violence on the bottom of your brain?

          I always thought it would be a good idea to be a decent acustic drummer first. But now I see the errors of my thinking.

          Hey Arriguy, Did you go to High School at Walton ??

          I knew a dude named ARRI who was a kick ass drummer (AND A TON OF KICK ASS EQUIPIMENT) and I have always wondered if it was you ??

            Sorry, that's not me suuntov. I went to Hapeville High.
            The Arri part of my screen name is related to my business. Arri is short for Arriflex, a brand of motion picture camera.

                  So, electrons and violence. Thats a good combination. Maybe I'll try that.

                    Still haven't tried the violence part, yet. I'll get right on that.

                      Play a few gigs while people are trying to get close to your edrums, trying to touch them or my favorite lean on them and the violence will self-evolve. I had one gig where a coupe of girls leaned on my rig and pulled the whole rack down. Cables were flying out of the pads/cymbals not to mentioned out of my outboard gear and TD-8 since then I use extra drum sticks to throw them at people (since I do not break sticks, I have found a new life for them to keep people away).

                        I wish a couple of girls would lean on my rig.

                          I had a girl reach over a rail near the stage (in a tight venue) and hit the upper keys on one of my keyboards once. It was in between songs and I gestured at my crotch and said (over the PA), "Now that you've played my piano, let's see what you can do with my organ."

                            I can think of a few drum equipment analogies (stick, beater, etc), but I'll leave it at that. I don't think they usually mean any harm when they do that stuff. I think they are either drunk or stupid or horny. A combination of all three is what I call "the holy grail".

                              Yeah, LOL, I don't know which was more annoying, having someone paw my keys, or not having her take me up on my proposal. In either event, neither really bothered me. Just another tenuously relevant anecdote.

                              Just for the record, just about anyone with a reasonably apparent degree common sense is generally welcome to play my drums (within reason and when time/circumstance allows) at my discretion. However, when I am working is almost never an option.
