    What is the legal basis for the sale of transcriptions?

    S Sounds like we are. Though maybe the point should be made, just to clarify, that distributing for money or sale isn't really the issue - just distributing them without permission, period. Sometimes it seems folks believe if they are sharing something for free, it is OK. But it's not -...

    Musicians Accepting Bitcoin

    Neither here nor there - the question was about Golden Sachs being a reliable source of assessment - not about bitcoin. It has been shown over decades, that the only consistent about anything Goldman reviews, assesses, recommends, etc.... is that their review, assessment, or recommendation will...

    What is the legal basis for the sale of transcriptions?

    Sorry gotta disagree - writing transcriptions + not selling them is absolutely legal. To the best of my knowledge, even being paid to transcribe something for someone else is also legal. Because you would simply be doing something for someone in proxy of them doing it themselves. Basically the...

    What is the legal basis for the sale of transcriptions?

    That's not exactly true. Remember there are still "fair use" aspects to copyright law. And even before that - there is no aspect of copyright law that says that I can't buy a CD, edit it audio, add new parts to it and mix it down to entirely different version as long as I don't publicly share it...

    Compared to Goldman Sachs??? Most any of them!!!!

    What is the legal basis for the sale of transcriptions?

    I agree - with not only the song publishing paid. But also a fee for using the drummer's name and image. All of which are totally negotiable (no fix fees) and require permission (the stakeholders don't have to allow it).

    What is the legal basis for the sale of transcriptions?

    First - you can legally transcribe something for personal use completely legally. The issue over "right to copy" is so much about the actual copying - but the distributing, sharing, displaying, etc. those copies in any way. As for publishing transcriptions - yes, at least until the "Blurred...

    The 5 stroke roll.

    I'll play devil's advocate here and ask.... Heaven forbid why????? Deep dives are like cramming for test.... OK when trying to pass a mid-term in a pinch. But really not a great way to develop as a player. Compared to taking a broader approach - working on more things at a time.... so that you...

    Modern Drummer Magazine Under New Management

    I get - for all the reasons you mention - that there are less folks doing it full time. (Or to whatever degree we all ever did it full time - being a "no day gig" player has always, at least for most of us, been an exercise in keeping lots of irons in the fire.) But just because there are (or...

    Modern Drummer Magazine Under New Management

    Oh, I'm fully aware of the current state of professional music making... but that doesn't explain what you suggested. I get it can be a distraction, seeing all of the IMO meaningless "drum cover" folks (I've been playing along with records since I was 12 - I never expected anyone but grandma to...

    Visualizing rhythm as a wheel

    While a cool way of analyzing short repetitive segments - foundational elements. I think the narrator oversteps in his suggests of this as an alternative to the musical timeline... when he says things like "by freeing ourselves from the musical bar line", I kind of chuckled - because he totally...

    My step-dad said I had my kit set up wrong. Should I take that as gospel?

    Oh me too! I don't know how anyone plays them flat.

    My step-dad said I had my kit set up wrong. Should I take that as gospel?

    Cool with me. What I wrote though really had nothing to do with over-sized toms. My normal rack toms are 10x7 and 12x8 over a 22" BD. In other words, I set up that way all the time (with the snare and tom rims at two different heights) - because reaching so far forward to reach that (for me) low...

    My step-dad said I had my kit set up wrong. Should I take that as gospel?

    Maybe - but I've been playing with my rack tom 5" or so (never less than that) for years... decades - and literally never catch a rim. It's all pros and cons. I find by tilting the tom a bit and raising it - I'm able to bring it in closer by an inch or two. My rack tom vertically hangs over the...

    Gina Schock's Snare Drum in this picture - Rogers?

    I’m sorry, but… wow.

    True or false: few things speak more volumes about a person without saying anything than a drummer’s personal setup.

    And yet, in every case, you had to use extreme examples.... the OP's premise is that you can ALWAYS determine a laundry list of things about a player from just looking at their kit.... a tome of things, IIRC. Regular players post pictures of the varied, yet basically regular set-ups - and I...

    Your Home Studio Mac Mini Configuration

    This is true with, at least, one big exception. In audio production, if we are using much in the way of sample libraries... sample instruments... they still use RAM to buffer the beginning of each sample that we might play - so that when we hit a pad or key, the sample can respond near...

    Don't do this!

    Have no doubt that Warren G was totally aware of the song and track that he was laying his new melody and lyrics on top of... even if his later fans (these girls) came to believe that he was the total source of that grooving creation.

    True or false: few things speak more volumes about a person without saying anything than a drummer’s personal setup.

    False. IMO it doesn't "speak tomes" about anything... it is simply an observation that leads many to indulge in making unfounded presumptions - pre-judgments that sadly too often color perceptions going forward. Like bands while auditioning, producers when hiring... listening with their eyes...
