For the last decade I seem to end up joining already established bands and have to learn 3 or 4 sets worth of tunes fast.
I copy and paste lyrics onto Notepad and then use my own made up color code to highlight words or phrases to cue myself for fills, crashes,etc.
I only use these at rehearsal...
Love it! I really like the sound of those drums.
I bought the snare in that wrap. The right tuning, snare tension and just a touch from the internal muffler and it sounds great to me even with the stock head. Gonna experiment with others though.
I was asked to sub for a guy I worked with back in the 80s. He was a great drummer. Never heard his band or met any of the players in it. No set list ahead of time as his father-law had just passed away that day so very last minute.
Got to the gig and was very apprehensive when I saw the set...
If I'm going to mic the bass drum I prefer a ported head so I can place the mic all the way inside. Used a short mic stand at one point but inevitably some stringed instrument idiot would run into the stand.
Yep and it was my own dam fault. At our previous house you could forget to shut the garage door, leave your keys in the ignition overnight and it would still be there in the morning.
Had this house built and moved in 14 years ago.
I'd pressed the button to shut the garage door but I'm guessing...
