    Being a drummer in the Country & Western/Western Swing world

    As much as I fancy myself a rock/contemporary drummer. My most regular gig is playing a country dance 2-3 times a month at a city-run rec center. Most of the music is C&W from the '50s-'80s along with some Western Swing in the tradition of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. I often share the...

    OT: Help me prep/pack for a nearly two-week vacation

    My wife and I will soon embark on the trip of a lifetime, beginning with a week-long tour through interior Alaska and finishing with a four-day cruise from Glacier Bay to Vancouver. This adventure is so far beyond the scale of any trip we've ever taken before. It is our first ever group...

    Surprised Matt Halpern doesn't get more attention here...

    He has the funky sensibilities of Chad Smith and the ability to groove his way through mind-bending meter changes, in the same fashion as Mike Portnoy. Quite the powerhouse drummer.

    Another fascinating performance by Nate Smith

    Dude has a sense of rhythm that occupies spaces unfamiliar to me. If Nate's drumming was represented by a Venn diagram... the three circles would be Intuition, Mystery & Stank

    Contemporary drum solos have changed... but I can't put my thumb on it

    The drum solo here by Lenny Reece (beginning around 3:00) is great. Lots of interesting ideas. To me, this video is more proof that the solos of younger drummers have evolved beyond the convention of my generation. It's different, but I'm not quite sure exactly how. nothing swung? not many...

    New Vic Firth Freestyle Drum Sticks

    Basically longer versions of common size/weight sticks. 17" Hickory sticks in legacy diameters with a longer taper. I remember playing The Questlove sig stick a few years back. It's long with a longer taper and, while they proved to be fragile, the rebound from these sticks was tremendous...

    Ceramic Dog on KEXP - Rockin' performance from Ches Smith

    This is one of those performances where you just sit back and smile while the drummer rocks out. I love the aggressive, nuanced and fun display Ches delivers. And, is it just me, or do his cymbals sound AMAZING? The crashes just explode from his sticks.

    I searched DFO to see if this had been posted. This is an amazing watch, especially when they find out what a kit like this cost back then. ...and that snare drum ....oh that snare drum!

    New Gianluca Pellerito video. (wow!)

    In my opinion, this is a fantastic representation of cutting-edge excellence our art's latest generation. I see it as proof of evolution in contemporary drumming from the masters of past decades (Cobham, Colaiuta, Weckl, Mangini, Mayer et al.). Its equally impressive but the approach is different.
