    What's Your Day Gig?

    Worked as number cruncher at a large company for 32 years. Retired the last three years. Hopefully I have enough in savings to not work again (or at least not work where I don't enjoy it).

    Help identifying drum keys?

My guess is that it is a key for a gas valve (brass=no spark). Any other guesses? Key two is smaller and has a hex shaped opening. I...

    Skill level vs Gear level

    A bunch of us retired or close to retiring (engineering jobs, not musicians) use to play together just for fun, a true basement band. All of us loved to buy gear, we all had way to much stuff. I proposed the band name "More Toys Than Talent", it was rejected because it was too close to the truth.

    How often do you clean up the saw dust from your practice area?

    I just did a little vacuuming after about a year, I had a fair sized pile of saw dust. Maybe it's my technique but I do chew up sticks in a hurry. So how long do you go before you clean up the practice area?

    Is anyone buying or selling now?

    Was planning on selling at the Chicago Drum show. I may try craigslist after the stay-at-home orders are lifted. Not much of a seller, just trying to scale down, and I don't care to deal with shipping.

    OT What books you reading??

    Slow Getting Up by Nate Jackson. Life in the NFL from the bottom of the pile. He went to a small school, training camp and practice squad fodder. Good book if you're in to football. The Match by Mark Frost. It's about a golf match in 1956 where Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson played amateurs...
