    Just had a peek at Hynde's more recent pics .... maybe playing O'Day in the latter years of her life . Cyrus could do the first half .

    Not OT: Anita O'Day

    If you walk the walk, you can talk the talk . She had enormous class , pure gold inside . Incredible footage of the audience with babies - this was the Kennedy generation, full of hope . Blossom Dearie's a kindred soul .

    Head for Acrylic snare ?

    16th notes on the hat (single handed)

    Slowly count the notes in one complete 1/2 rotation of the beads against the palm of your other hand . if your motion is consistent, the number should be repetitive . Now transfer those groupings onto the hihat, keeping your wrist motion consistent as well . For me there's a natural inflection...

    16th notes on the hat (single handed)

    You'd be surprised how many times an Afuche Cabasa is used to flesh out hihat groupings on studio hits .

    Head for Acrylic snare ?

    Looking for a new (round) drum throne to solve cramping problem

    OT: Sick bass player (not in a good way...)

    I had a patch of dry skin on my elbow that split and let in some nasty bacteria last fall . Turned into septic cellulitis and I came very close to losing most of my left arm . Caught in time and I was on IV anti-bio for 46 days . These things can happen and I sure hope your buddy pulls through OK .

    Forgotten box from my last score

    Or in the washing machine after the last spin cycle . I use those snares stands exclusively . The arms flex on impact , and with a bit of dense foam or surgical tubing around the claws and I've added a significant percentage to my snare sound . The tripod can be adapted fairly easily to receive...
