Title: Let's See or Hear You Play!
Post by: Bart Elliott on January 01, 2008, 10:00 AM
Share a few (one or two) audio or video examples of your playing by posting the links here! This can be recordings of your band, drum solos, grooves, etc.

Be sure to tell us a little bit about what you are playing and who you are playing with.

Well, since Felix is here, I guess I have to put something up  ;D

We're getting some of the initial mixes back for our upcoming EP, here's one:

Hollywood
www.eekrecords.com/mp3/lna.mp3

It takes a bit for everyone to come in, the first verse is guitar and vocals only.  There's ONE instance of profanity in the bridge, for those of you who are sensitive to such things. 

I used my Hart Dynamics E-drums, Roland TD-20 Brain, with the vexpressions LTD Timeless Timber kit. 

I'll post one of the uptempo songs, once we finalize a mix.

PDXtaco - Nice country tune!  I'm with felix, it's not my cup of tea, but it's done well.  Are you using rods?  Nice choice to compliment the acoustic.

Donelk - The 3 of you definitely hit your stride by the third song.  You and the bass player have a nice solid feel.  I'm not sure I'm crazy about the guitarists' style, but once he tuned up, it sounded pretty good. 

I dislike Real Media with a passion, so I missed out on dmcc's offering.

Felix's playing is cooler than that kid's hair...nuff said.
(that really is a nice snare, I wish it was clearer in the mix)

Drums are grooving fine



 ;D  Thanks for that!

The singer's got a great voice, but he could use a little polish.  He tends to move around a lot, tapping feet and moving in and out from the mic.  It's great when we're performing, but not so desirable in the studio.  I'm working with him on that.

Spot on with the guitar.  I'm not crazy about mixing piano with electric guitar, especially since a keyboard piano sound is always perfectly in tune, and a guitar...isn't.  It's the arrangement and sound that they want, though, so I'll let them have it for now. 

I keep hammering it into their heads that if you lay down a sub par track, the final mix is only going to make it worse, not better.  They're starting to improve, but sometimes it's like splitting hairs.    ::)

I hear ya. I recorded this on an old Sony still camera that takes video clips - it's the only thing I have that's digital that I can then download to the computer.

I felt kinda lame never having posted myself playing here on DC so I just decided to wing it with that old camera.
It was fine Danno,
I kinda like it raw anyway.  In the right studio, they can take Chicken Sh#$ and turn it into Chicken salid sometimes. Even speed tempo's with out changing pitch, bend notes that were flat. Effects, Compression, cover stuff up with reverb or something,  etc, etc.  It shows the true you.  Anyone that plays Zeppelin is OK with me.

Why don't you post that cover tune you sent me of you Nutty?  That was actually pretty good.
Thank you Felix,
I don't know where to host music, only pictures and since I did a personal on myspace instead of a band profile I can't do it that way.  I am also dumping my web site soon.  It is on there but my web designer didn't label the song which is one of the reasons I am going with a different web guy. If you go to my web site and go to "Music Of the Day",
you will see two songs that have no label.  One of those songs is Allan Parsons,
"Wouldn't Want to be like You". It was done in one take. Or give me a good host site and I will post it tonight?

I have got this on another gig with this band that is better, but, I haven't played music with those guys in a few years. They were pretty good but the guitar player fell off and went to other non musical adventures and that is what happend. Part of It#@!. This is 4 years old.  http://www.thenuttydrummer.com/LiveConcert.html.

This should work until my friend unplugs the website. 
I am working on something better.
Someone,??
Tell me who or what I need to host a few songs????
I have two songs that are done. The copy write was just completed and I can show you some of my studio work from my basement to the pro studio. I just need to know how to find a host?

Hey Felix,
I was able to get my web guy to put it on the first page.
Here you go!! It is Allan Parson's "Wouldn't want to Be like You".
Done by my three man band "A Band Of Three" We recorded the instruments in one take. As long as you have an updated version of Media Player, it should work as soon as
you click on this link. If not go to the bottom of the page and click in the players play button twice. Sorry about the shirtless Picture, it was my web guys idea.

Last night I was a guest soloist at a concert near Atlanta with a rehearsal big band. They're mainly a group of talented semi pros and band directors. They do a decent job, the crowd was good, and it was nice to perform with them. This is part of my introduction into doing stuff like this guest performer thing, and we probably had about 40 total minutes to work on this. I'm not ready for big time sitting in yet with the very best big bands, so this kinda gig will suit me for the time being for sure. Actually I'm still mainly a combo person, but I do like big bands too.

Part 2 (solo 1 after Somewhere)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_Yukhmpbaw

Part 3 (solo 2 to the end)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kIrjUJyZbng

Since it's West Side Story and all, I'm sure some of the Rich fanatics will be trying to analyze what I've done here but that's cool. I'm debating where to show for a part 1, but for now I've posted the 2 main solos.

Well here goes...

There's 3 songs up there at the moment, from a demo we started recording in August. Unfortunately our singer just quit the band, so we put it up on myspace to help us find a  new singer.

Constructive criticism welcome.

Threw a song up for download here:
http://www3.telus.net/public/Aridyme/Drums/aridyme-20080210_3.mp3

This is from one of a few jam sessions with a guitarist friend of mine where I listen to what he plays and try to come up with something for it on the fly.  Pretty basic drumming as I'm still quite a noob, but I really like what my buddy came up with so I thought I'd share it.

Try your best to ignore the mistakes and such please :)

You only ever post solos, great and all that, but it's perhaps 5% of what drumming is about.

Well Chris, I'm not so sure that's entirely true. Respectfully, after all when my solo was over during part 3, I didn't just walk off and have the guitar player finish the piece. Now I'm not trying to be snitty, but again with respect, I'm wondering where a comment like that comes from. It's confusing sometimes. When I was posting speed stuff on a pad, it was all you ever do is that, why not show something on a set. So OK, you post set work, then it's all you ever do is solos, although stuff like this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8EKCFFeSipU

and this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kAqaR3hjhI

is on the same cover page of the youtube channel.

I also post DJ mixes:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=4dOi_4Gebnc

I've also put up vibes stuff on other video sharing sites. Maybe I can find some of that and post. I mean I'm cool with whatever.

I post solos mostly, because that's what's viewed on youtube 99% of the time, and over time, has constituted the lion's share of posts in this thread as well. Moreover, since I'm primarily known as a technician type, more people seem to want to know the various ways you handle your left hand, trad grip, hi-hat possibilities, etc. If I were Steve Gadd (which I'm not even close to being), or most appropriately here you, with a large body of work, then certainly you might see something else. Otherwise, why?

Seriously and with the cool level head, is my response a fair one? Please also know that I know who you are and admire what you have done for drumming. You are the drummer who's played with Paul McCartney right? Therefore I know your comments are sincere, as I hope you can take from mine as well. I'm pleased you stopped by to listen.
Title: Re: Let's See or Hear You Play!
Post by: felix on March 05, 2008, 03:57 PM
Mattjazz, with all due respect, previously all you ever did here was post your gobbledy gook videos (my opinion, you probably would hate my solos if you heard them yourself- no big deal). 

You really don't help other people out here / aren't an active member here- that's ok in my opinion also.  But when you come back with a post like you just did- that's just ego man, whether you know it yet or not.  You come off to me as having a  big ego- in your playing and posting and then put in a line about humility?  I don't buy it.  That's ok though 'cause that's where you are at right now.  Really, it's ok and who you are as a player, that is actually cool.

So if Chrisso ain't digging your stuff, so be it.  This place is about opinions.   He does not have to post anything about his playing either- the man knows what drumming is about and has probably played drums for about 2 of your lifetimes.

Good luck.

Post by: Mister Acrolite on March 05, 2008, 08:31 PM
Matt, I think the biggest problem is that one never gets the sense that you feel you have anything to LEARN from being here. You've lectured us on speed, drum corps, what jazz is and who stole it from whom, and have shown us umpteen videos of you soloing. But I don't remember you asking any questions, or starting any discussions that indicated a thirst for knowledge. Instead, I only see your eagerness to show us what you've got.

You're still in your teens, right? You have here at the Cafe a whole bunch of people who have been playing drums professionally longer than you've been alive. In cases like mine, MUCH longer than you've been alive.

You're a talented drummer. You've got good hands, okay feet, and some knowledge. Guess what? There's more to drums. LOTS more. And a ton of it is accessible to you right here, if you ever stop to listen. Or ask questions. Or maybe just read some posts and absorb some knowledge.

Believe me, I respect talent, and do NOT think that only older drummers know what's going on. Tony Williams played some of his greatest stuff in his teens - stuff most of us (myself included) STILL can't touch.

That was Tony. You're not Tony. Not even close. Neither am I, all these years later. But my point is, I'll cut some slack to a teenager with Tony's skills. A guy like that can get in my face. But you can't - you haven't earned the right, and your playing is not enough to earn that right. And I suspect I'm not alone in feeling that way.

You've clearly spent some time studying the great drummers. Here's a tip: study not only their playing, but their behavior. I've never heard Steve Gadd or Vinnie Colaiuta say  ANYTHING cocky or disrespectful. EVER. And those are guys that certainly could back it up with their playing. In fact, other than a VERY few artists, I think you'll see that sort of thing just isn't done. Why? Guys that good don't NEED to be cocky - their playing speaks for itself.

You play well. For a teenager, you play VERY well. But you're not in a league of your own, so stop acting like you are, and you'll get along with people a LOT better.

My two cents. I wish you well. It's clear that you're passionate, and I respect that. But you need to emulate the grace of the pros, not just their playing. Buddy Rich might have been arrogant, but he was Buddy Freaking Rich. You're not. Nor am I.

That's why every time I log in at the Cafe, I do so looking forward to what I might LEARN. Not just what I might teach somebody else.

Give that attitude a try, and you might have a better time here.

I have been playing since 1964.  Like Keith, I look forward to spending time at the Drummer Cafe.  The main reasons I hang out at the Cafe is to enjoy myself.  I enjoy learning about our craft and there are few times I fail to learn something when I spend time with my friends at the Drummer Cafe.  I also enjoy sharing what little knowledge I have gathered in my life with musicians who are hungry for knowledge.

Post by: Matt Self (Gaddabout) on March 06, 2008, 03:52 AM
First, I like Matt. I like his playing, I like that he's smart, and articulate, and is in fact interested in what others have to say. When I think of young players I meet online the last 10 years who will have a good chance of gracing the cover of Modern Drummer som day, Matt's one of those guys. Not that that's his agenda, I'm just saying.

That said, Matt, I have to agree with Keith here based on the totality of your interaction on this board. Maybe you agree with me or maybe you don't, but I think you've matured quite a bit the past 3 years and it's probably not fair to judge you based on something you posted, say, 2 years ago. But this board has been around awhile and reputations tend to die hard. Your initial reception here was ... not smoothly received. You had some strong comments to make in defense of WFD. Admittedly, many of us just won't have it no matter what the context, and I still think you are an exception to the WFD rule -- you have good musical chops, not just great single strokes (or whatever). But the point is you crashed here with an opinion that was not very popular, and you left with a small chip on your shoulder about it. You really needed to engage people here more before coming back with your clips. That's just board dynamics. You haven't given people much of a chance to get to know you outside of your clips, and relationship is tantamount to trust. I know there's more to you than all of this, but no one but me around here has had much of a chance to see it.

FWIW, I've exchanged some e-mails with Matt and some posts on another board, and I think he's a really good guy. He's worth interacting with and giving him a chance to see if your perceptions are worth holding on to. If I lived anywhere near him, we'd probably be good friends.

Chris, dude, I know you've got a good point to make, but this thread sort of begs solos and showy doesn't it? The spirit of the comment struck me as having a little bitter edge to it, and not constructive like you usually are. Also, almost all of Matt's performances so far have been in the jazz and big band category, very normal for someone on a high academic track in this country. Maybe when he gets out of college and starts playing for pay we'll get to see what he can do with 2&4. In the meantime, I won't hold it against him for showing us his highlights from a big show like this.
Title: Re: Let's See or Hear You Play!
Post by: Riddim on March 06, 2008, 06:49 PM
From what I read of Chris's comments, which make perfect sense to me, it would be nice to see more of how you play the band, how you shape an arangement and enable a band to play better than it would without you.

Anybody can, with a little work, blaze.  Using this instrument to make the music better is another thing.

I have to admit I thought mattjazz was considerably older  :-X

Considering he's considered to be not older than me, he seems well "directioned", technique-wise.


How large is the big band piece in question? If very long, that's a reason for highlighting a solo (or in this case two lol). I personally enjoyed the second solo, it was fun.
But I love jazz drums at any part of the song, and I think that a regular part of the song would also be great for showing his skills. The feel!

Mattjazz might be learning a lot from the forum! I read several times more than what I choose to write/type/post about. I hope he is, I hope we all are.

all above said by a person who plays a tiny fraction of what all the other posters play. ;D

While I have not read much from Matt on drummercafe, I have read a lot of Matt's posts on other web sites and FWIW, I agree 100% with the above observations.  In the threads I have read elsewhere Matt was gracious beyond his years.  Just my experience.  Regardless of what odd threads I find interesting outside drummercafe, I always come back.  Drummercafe is my absolute favorite on-line drum forum.  I hope Matt finds his comfort zone here and settles into this great community.

It is a privilege to be able to see and hear them.

I hope you enjoy these 2 of me on percussion. I may have posted the second one once about a year ago, am not sure. The first is of a brother and I jamming, filmed by another brother. The second is of me soloing.

Hope you enjoy!

Sorry I haven’t been here for a while, ‘I am but a worm’ etc…  :-[

I have finally got an mp3 from our new album for you all, I think my drumming is a bit more musical than on the last one, that’s mainly because I have ran out of talent & don’t practice as much as I used to, so I can’t play as much of the self indulgent rubbish nowadays..

 http://www.isor.net/media/ISOR-Dykes-Make-My-Sperm-Strike.mp3]MP3 File

I am finding it hard to get really ‘into’ drums at the moment, but I am looking forward to the touring on this album & I am hoping it will re-kindle the drumming flame & you will see me here a bit more often..

Hi Riot,

Thanks!

They are planning it over the next month or so, but I have been told that they will hopefully include US & Australian dates as well as the UK & European shows.

I am guessing it’s dependent on pre-sales, but that the moment they are going quite well so who knows… I would really like to do the US & OZ dates even if it’s only 5-7 shows each, I have never been to ether country & have always wanted to…

I have just been watching your video, cool stuff! Just the kind of thing I am into, have you guys got any CD’s for sale?

Cheers

Hey guys...I know I rarely contribute as a member here and I apologize, and more so for dumping more youtube bandwidth here, but I thought I'd shamelessly post a couple video clips from a concert I worked this week. 

This was a performance billed under the pianist's name.  We were playing his compositions.  The first clip is just a vamp/harmonic figure he gave us before the gig to improvise on.  Still just a simple 32 bar thing. So, we do take a few liberties.
Second (and third) clip...part one and two...are of a tune that the pianist composed for a friend who passed away. 
Anyway, we had some fun. 

"X-Set" (a last-minute improvised piece):

I've had some free time this year, and just started back up playing.
Here's one thing I made:
http://www.rhythmstop.com/sounds/poowebclip.mp3

I basically have been soloing to a click, finding some ideas that I like, then run with them and sort of arrange them and then I put weird ambient sounds over them.

The other things I did, which were much less rhythmically boring, but will make South Park fans really are these:

And Towelie:

I had a lot of fun making them, and it can be a little humbling to hear yourself play fills badly that you thought you could play well.  :)

Hey guys...I know I rarely contribute as a member here and I apologize, and more so for dumping more youtube bandwidth here, but I thought I'd shamelessly post a couple video clips from a concert I worked this week. 

This was a performance billed under the pianist's name.  We were playing his compositions.  The first clip is just a vamp/harmonic figure he gave us before the gig to improvise on.  Still just a simple 32 bar thing. So, we do take a few liberties.
Second (and third) clip...part one and two...are of a tune that the pianist composed for a friend who passed away. 
Anyway, we had some fun.

Hey everyone, I'm new here, and I've got 3 sources of music I play in.


My band is called Cyeniic Apparatus, and we have sort of a rock fusion sound.. or something like that.

You can hear us on Facebook here:

http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#/pages/Cyeniic-Apparatus/18561221178?ref=ts


and Myspace here:

http://www.myspace.com/cyeniicmanifold



The Myspace page only has 5 songs while the Facebook has 13; eventually though, both pages will have our 15-track album up for download. Anyway I'd appreciate any feedback and I'm (obviously) the drummer. Also, here's a video that shows my setup:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDuBT3ezTpo

^The artist, album, and song in that video are all fictional, just so you know.   ;)



Since this is a drum forum it's worth mentioning that we play in a ton of weird time signatures.
Title: Re: Let's See or Hear You Play!
Post by: David Aldridge on December 31, 2008, 06:32 PM
Figured I'd post, as I finally have something to share.  The band's name is 'Daybreak Desire', and we're four amateur 30-somethings-with-day-jobs that are simply playing for fun.  Our  http://www.myspace.com/daybreakdesire]MySpace page  has 3 original demos we recorded ourselves in December and just had mixed by a local engineer.  While rather simple songs (essentially matching our skill levels), we all think they turned out rather well.

For anybody interested, we recorded in our practice space (a AAA storage unit with as horrid acoustics as you'd expect) using the following "pro-sumer" level equipment (I have the original individual tracks if anybody is interested in the "before mix" sounds - PM me, as they are deliberately not publicly available):

- Macbook Pro (late 08 model) using Logic Pro 8
- Presonus Firepod
- Various Shure mics on the drums (Beta 52, SM57, KSM109s)
- Bass DI'ed out of his amp (I forget the details)
- Guitar DI'ed out of his amp (some smallish tube amp most haven't heard of - Koch, maybe?)
- Vocals into a Sennheiser 835 (hand-held mic for live performance, basically)

Everything was recorded live/together in one take per song, with overdubs for the few guitar solo bits done afterwards.  Mixing was done by Tim Dolbear at  http://www.eclecticarecordings.com/eclectica-studio.htm]Eclectica Studios .  Kick was sample-replaced and bass was re-amped on one due to too much clipping (whoops, guess we layed into it too much after setting the levels too hot).  Guitar was doubled/delayed.  Everything else was just "cleaned up" with standard compression/etc. techniques.

Comments/questions welcome.

-David

I was digging through my archives and found some old video footage of me that I thought I'd share.

This was the final piece I performed on my junior recital back on May 4, 1985 (I was 20 years old at the time) at Mary Moody Northen Hall on the campus of, what was then, West Texas State University (WTSU), now known as WTAMU.

"Tambourin Chinois" (Chinese Drum) was original composed for violin by Fritz Kreisler. This arrangement is by legendary xylophonist, George Hamilton Green.

I'm playing on a 4-octave Deagan Xylophone (c.1908) which I no longer own but thoroughly enjoyed; what a beautiful sounding and looking instrument!

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-CGzDsk7yg

On one hand I can't believe this is from 24 years ago; time flies. But on the other hand, so much has happened in my life that this seems like an eternity.

It's a very long and slow boring song, so don't listen to it if you don't get the whole texture thing or are in a hurry to get out of work for lunch.

First of all I have really enjoyed the posts above.  Some very interesting wonderful drumming happening.  great stuff guys.  Riot I love your energy


Well guys I finally have something I can post up here, since I put together the whole video thing for the community solo, I made this clip to sample (as was requested) the Paiste 2002 Heavy Hi-Hats 80's vintage Im selling on ebay.  Heres a couple ramblings.   This will probably be boring for most of you but it's all I have to post.   I've been enjoying playing to this song for a few months now.  It came off some Holiday playalong CD.  There are about 4 other pretty cool tracks on it too.

Hey Dizz, are those 15" 2002 Heavy hats? I picked up a set a year ago from Donn Bennett and they have become my go-to hats for everything.
Title: Re: Let's See or Hear You Play!
Post by: dizz on May 02, 2009, 01:41 PM
No  those are just the  14's.  But they are great sounding cymbals.

My favorite hi hats at the moment are new style K on top and an old zildjian amir heavy bottom hat cymbal.  I say my favorites, but it's not like I had my choice of anything I could get.  Those are the favorites of my collection.

I also have a mastersound bottom cymbal but its slightly warped.  I dont know what to do with that cymbal.  Its not bad for harder hitting playing and foot play, but quiet to moderate levels it sounds a little hollow being slightly warped.

This was our Worship last weekend 6/07/09. Now I normally just play percussion because we have enough drummers but nobody who can play AP. The drummer who was scheduled was at practice on Thurs. that week but was not feeling good. He ended up in the hospital the next day, he is fine now. So Fri night I got the call to cover both drums & percussion. So after switching gears and a little rehearsal before the Sat night service I think it went pretty well. I especially like the acoustic version of " Ole Rugged Cross" 3rd song in.

This is my favorite song we did as "The Catch" back in 1996.

While looking through the footage on the video camera I found these little snippets from 2007.  The band is my old wedding band.  I was with them over 18 years (8 pieces with horns).  We broke up in 2004 but got together again in 2007 to play this outdoor picnic gig.  

No rehearsal, we just called stuff out of the Real Book or played material from our old library.  It was nice to play with those guys (and gal) again.  We had a good run, averaging 35 weekends a year for 18 years.

Anyhoo - there are just a couple of pieces of songs here, so I stuck them up on YouTube.   T

UPDATE: Added clip of Orange Colored Sky.

In any event, this post oughta destroy whatever credibility I might have had here.  :)

This one is L.O.V.E.

Wow Nutty!  Very nice.  I mean VERY nice!!! 

Thought I'd contribute with a song that will be on my band's next CD.  It's called Arizona Snow and is the recording debut of that funky old Royal Star kit in red satin flame finish that I posted about a while back.  These are the basic tracks of each instrument...  no editing or processing has occurred yet.  Can't wait to get this mixed and polished up. 

Somewhat interesting side note:  The band leaders wanted to record acoustic guitar, electric guitar and lead vocal to a click first and then have me record my drums to those parts with no audible click.  I'm used to playing along with scratch tracks and recording my parts first, but these are not intended to be scratch tracks. 

Those cheapo stencil Royal Stars greatly exceeded my expectations!  Anyway, here's the link to the song.

Here's a demo track (minus vocals) that I played on back in 2008; I tracked the drums here in my studio. It's just a rough mix with raw drums. This is also an example of the producer giving specifics as to what they want. In my case, for example, the Tom-Tom pattern was requested.

If you like it, you can find a play-along version, minus drums, that I just mixed and added to the Premium Resources.

The song is really nice Ryan. The drums, as always with your recordings, sound great and fit the song very nicely. You are giving the song just what it needs. As far as the cheapo drums, I think it depends on who is setting them up and the tuning and heads. They sound great.  I like her voice and the guitars and bass sound really nice. I am not sure who she reminds me of but maybe a bit Pretenders. I dig the music. Nice work, I mean VERY NICE ;) ;D.

Thanks Mark! 

I've had some people comment that the toms sound too dead.  Funny thing is, I didn't muffle them at all.  The low-end luaun mahogany shells, rounded bearing edges and G2 coated batters over G1 coated resos all contribute to that sound. 

I was going for a subdued sound due to the nature of the lyrics of the song...  they deal with the suicide last year of our original bassist.  So I was looking for something dark and low, and these fit the bill nicely. 

Glad you dug the tune.  She's been compared to Aimee Mann before and we've heard Pretenders comparisons before as well.  I'm just happy to be playing in a band with a singer/songwriter of that quality. 

Cheers,
Ryan

I can't stand Reverb, and your drums sound fine. I wouldn't change anything about them. If you want to add just a hair of reverb to the toms, it won't hurt but I mean just a hair. I like it on just Bass and Snare but what you saw me do in my basement was dry. Just me and music through the PA. I like your sound now. By the way, the snare pop sounds great. I don't know what snare you are using but it sounded nice. Peace to you Ryan.

Thanks again for the compliments, Mark! 

The snare was the snare that came with that Royal Star set.  It's not a Royal Star snare...  it has a little round badge that just says Star on it.  (Star was also a Tama brand name before it became Tama)  It's steel-shelled, 8-lug with regular old triple-flanged hoops.  I don't know what the magic ingredient is, but that drum is AMAZING.  It's definitely my all-time greatest sleeper drum acquisition.

I don't prefer a lot of processing on the drums either, and probably will leave the drums alone for the most part.  Might adjust levels a bit and perhaps a bit of EQ.  They had a mic out in the hall outside the studio that was picking up some nice natural ambience.  Will probably boost the level of that mic in the mix when it's all said and done. 

It was a blast recording that kit.  The mojo was oozing out of them and I'm sure it had a positive effect on my playing.  Also, the order of recording helped (actual guitars and vocals instead of hastily laid down scratch tracks) and felt very natural.

OK - an oldie that I hadn't heard in years - stumbled onto it YouTube (but found a better sounding link on another site).

First let me say I've always been a huge fan of Oingo Boingo - and consider John "Vatos" Hernandez's work with them to be some of the most under-rated and under-appreciated ever.

That said - for those that don't know before Oingo Boingo, there was a larger, more theatrical group called The Mystic Nights of the Oingo Boingo.

And though I knew several of the members (and was very good friends with guitarist, Steve Bartek) I really never played with either group... except this one session.

Sort of at the end of the first group, they recorded a single - sort of a '50's do-wop song that lyrically dealt with the infamous Patty Hearst kidnapping event from back then (this was 1976ish).

So Steve called me to come to this funky little studio in North Hollywood - that looked to be right out of the 50's - and cut "You've Got Your Baby Back (The Ballad of Patty Hearst).

These clips are from the summer 2009 Bottle Band shows.  The Bottle Band is a musical comedy group I perform with that performs music on bottles filled with different levels of water.  The performances include bad jokes, droll humor, sight gags, and funny (often very clever - check out "Baseball, Joy of Fan's Desiring" below) musical arrangements.  Our performances raise money for charitable groups.

My son, Ben (a budding new drummer), helps me out in the percussion section.

Here is a rough mix of a song called “World of Demons” that I did with my old buddy, Bob Crerie. Bob and I have been playing together since 1979.  He did all of the tracks except for the drums and asked me to lay down the drum tracks.  I kept them pretty straight-forward as the other instrumentation is busy enough to carry the song.  We recorded it at another friend’s house, Mike Terpak, who I have known since 1964.  The drum tracks are “live”, untouched by the meddling hands of any computer software. 

A bunch of old fogies, but give it a listen.  Any comments would be welcomed.

Hi Susan;

Thanks for the encouragement; I appreciate the compliment!

The hi-hats are 15" 2002 Paiste Heavy Hats (from 1978; they stopped making the Heavy Hats in the 15" size).

Yup, just some cymbals made of that "inferior alloy",  B8 ....  ;) ;D

Oh, there's also a Meinl Hi-hat tambourine on the hat-stand as well (it's the one that I raved about in "new gear" last year.

Hello,

I posted this on Billy's site earlier so it may be redundant for some of you. But I realized that I'd never posted a clip of myself here, mostly because I'm ugly and don't play well, but I hope you can overlook those :-)
BASICALLY:

I was recently contacted and asked to play in a group being put together for an "all year reunion" (basically graduates from the 1940s through 2010)  at my high school. The group was to consist of other alumni as well.
We were asked to kick off the program the other night.

While one might not believe it from hearing me, we actually had a very good music program for a small school in the sticks.

I had known and had played with some of the other players before, but also got a chance to meet some folks I had not known previously. 

We are all pretty well geographically dispersed so we only managed to have one rehearsal, so I in these clips see myself as doing more reading than "playing" (it sounds like it too) but that is how it goes.

Here they are

Night in Tunisia
This is an arrangement by  Abe Silverman, the sax player in the group, whom I've had the pleasure of recently meeting and playing with. Abe has been a working NYC musician since the late 50s, prior to that he was stationed in Cuba with the US Navy (pre Castro) so he played with all of the great Cuban players in Havana before they came here. For years Abe has had his own big band here, a couple of years ago his drummer was Ignacio Berroa, now it is Steve Little who played with Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton and Igor Stravinsky.  Abe is a treasure trove of stories from the Big Apple's Jazz heyday. He is still going strong as you'll see. There are some decent grooves during the solos.


 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sYYj5TzN20#ws]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_sYYj5TzN20#ws

Sing Sing Sing- Always cautious about tackling a signature piece like this....

This went OK, it was the last song we were able to play, and you'll see my solo end very abruptly (and awkwardly) because the organizer of the event was frantically waving his arms telling us we'd gone over the time limit (because he started things way too late). I'm definitely no Gene Krupa so I was just trying to capture the spirit of what he played. Anyway when I got the hook I just played the first thing that came into my head, then back into the tune.  I didn't want to copy the GK stuff note for note but I spent a lot of time listening to about 5 different versions on my ipod so I would absorb the general feeling of things.   Kind of disappointing to get cut off like that,  we had a few more tunes we pulled from the Real Book that we were going to stretch out on, but thats showbiz.

I later spoke to some people in the crowd out  who had actually seen Krupa play that tune live. Had I known that I probably would have opted out of playing it :-)

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Whxaq6aP-I#ws]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Whxaq6aP-I#ws


I Got Rhythm  The opening tune, I like the vocals..and we all started and finished at about the same place so that was good.

Hey Dizz,

Thank you very much for the nice comments.

That is a ride cymbal that I got with that kit when I was 10 (long time ago-back when Charlie's Angels was big in Prime Time :-).
I believe it to be a late 50s A (from the stamp on it). Up until recently when I was preparing for that gig it had the original 8 rivets in it, it created a huge sound but the rivets limited its utility so I hadn't used it much. One day on a whim I removed the rivets and really liked the sound, I can get a lot of different textures out of it....I guess I should have removed them years ago!

Thanks,

Kevin

Hey, guys. Newbie to the Cafe, here. Figured there wasn't really a better way to introduce myself than to post a video of my current band playing live. This particular video is from the Slave To The Metal Festival that came through our town (Charleston, SC) hosted by Mistress Juliya (from Fuse TV, I think).

This is the opening song. I guess you'll get a good idea of my playing style from this video. Lots of cymbal choking, variations of blasting (given the style of music, I believe I apply them tastefully, lol), and double bass flurries...quartets, I guess. Not triplets.

Pardon the screaming if you can't stand it, lol. And the vulgarities. Whoohoo. Hello.

Just catching up to this.  Outstanding.   Your boy rocks.  You, too.    :)

I had that up loud with the computer speakers.   The whole family enjoyed it.

Merry Christmas.

New Year's Eve gig. I think I was watching the game on the big screen TV...or something. It was a last minute thing, and I believe I counted a total of 5 people in the audience when it peaked @ 11:30 (when they set the buffet out, oddly enough). Despite the disappointing turnout, we rocked....I think.

I love that you kept your cell phone on your belt loop.

Hey Drummers,

Post by: Ron Gerber on February 03, 2011, 07:29 AM
That kind of drumming has always impressed me. I guess it's because there's so many licks and chops but it's something I never took the time to learn.
I loved Bill Bruford in his Yes and King Crimson Days but once he started doing stuff similar this on his solo albums he lost me. After about a minute I'm bored with the music somehow and after two minutes it's, "Let me out of the room"!
I once saw the Dixie Dregs in Atlanta. Each player was really impressive! But, after twenty minutes I had to cut out, I couldn't take the too frantic and disjointed music any longer. Changes for the sake of changes, forced funk. Just ain't my style.
Still. I'm impressed with what you can play. Your drums and cymbals sound great! I've never heard of that cymbal company. Another sign I might be getting to old for this game.

Once again, Kenny, great playing!

While at a jam in St. Pete I was approached by a guitar player who wanted me to play on a demo he was recording. The tracks had been laid but he wanted me to replace some of the drum tracks. He gave me a tape to prepare from only when I got to the studio he wanted me to play different songs than what I was to have prepared. A nerve wracking experience knowing I was being recorded yet had no idea where the music was heading. As it turned out on this track it was the same pattern repeated but... I didn't know that at the time. I only wish I had more fusion in my background to "speak" from. I just cranked up the snare and forged ahead. It's the one and only time I heard or played the tune:

Hannah it's great to see you constantly improving.  I really enjoyed your drum solo at what appeared to be a club gig

Since you've shown me yours, it seems only fair I show you mine. This is a promo video we shot for my function band. All recorded live, no fixes. Not much of me in the video, but with what's in front of me that's probably right and proper.

Hey Stewart!  Long time.  Boy, you could fit 2 and a half of my band into yours.  That's quite a production. 

It also shows a contrast in what can be entertaining. 

Yours is a highly polished rehearsed (and very good) act.  We on the other hand never rehearse, play once a month and generally have a really good reaction anyway.  Of course, we've been playing together forever, so that helps.

Haven't been here in awhile, but a lot has happened since I was here last. Mainly, and the most positive as far as my drumming goes, is that I stopped struggling to be "good enough", and started just having fun. Guess what...I'm having fun.

Here's a live recording of my band, Red Velvet Mojo. We had played a gig the night before this suare and didn't get home until 4AM. Then we had an engagement in the morning at 8AM with a group of musicians who came from as far away as Great Britain and Australia just to jam. It was an amazing day. We were exhausted before we started jamming, but played until after midnight.

The song is an original, written and sung by our lead guitarist Brian Futch:

 http://www.box.net/shared/h04r87rvnt]http://www.box.net/shared/h04r87rvnt

By the way, I'm not suggesting that the drumming on this song is anything but basic. I'm just sharing the fun I was having just being there...trying to keep my eyes open.  ;)

Hey guys, just setting up a home studio and thought I'd post a couple of samples.  Here's one where I add some drums to a Diana Krall track.  Let me know what you think:  http://soundcloud.com/brian-hobson1/errandgirlsticks]http://soundcloud.com/brian-hobson1/errandgirlsticks

Here's one more where I track along with Mumford and Sons' Cave.  The only pre-existing drum tracks were kick and tamborine; the rest was added.   http://soundcloud.com/brian-hobson1/caveish]http://soundcloud.com/brian-hobson1/caveish

Where'd you get the drumless track? That's the stuff I'd love to get better at playing...and it's tough to find a jazz band to jam with. ;)

Hey Rylie, Diana has two CDs that are virtually drum free.  Errand Girl. .  comes from the Nat King Cole tribute All For You.  I think Love Scenes is the other one that is tracked without drums.  Maybe we should start a topic where we can complile a list of "drumless" songs to play with.

Yeah, Diane has put out several albums without drums, just piano, bass and guitar. Look for those kinds of projects ... it's a play-along built right in! We talked about this before on the Drummer Cafe if you want to look for other recording suggestions.

Thanks guys! I love being able to work out patterns, learn new riffs and such with a real "band" without having a bass player roll his eyes or sigh every time I want to do it again. My band doesn't play anything in the jazz genre, unless we're just fooling around at practice and I force them into it, but that never sticks. :)

I'm off to get download those CD's. I really dig Diana's stuff anyway...just never owned any of her music. Until now.

Oh yea, it was like first thing in the AM -- not our typical gig, I know I look like I'm still asleep!

Tower of Power. 

Not our best performance but I don't get to set the cam up much and when I do, it's not in the best place. 

Played this gig on my oak stave drums I built and a Maple/ leopardwood snare I built.  The snare is 13x5 ish

2 overheads and a bass drum mic.

This other vid is old but couldn't be viewed the way I had the settings but it's a combination of what few drums I had at the house that day due to my main kit being out. 

16 inch floortom bass
bongos
10 inch splash cymbal hi hats

This is the song Negative Zero that my band wrote in 2010. We recorded it and two others (Echoplasm and Infernal Goodbye), and was going to release it as a physical E.P., but real life has pulled us all in different directions. We're going back into the studio in a week and in celebration, we've upped and released the entire thing (including instrumental tracks, which I'm a sucker for,) as a free digital download.

Oy, It's been a long dry spell.  Too much moving, too many old friendships that needed re-kindling. 

Finished a track that will be the soundtrack to a friend's iOS game.  I played drums, he played guitar and programmed an old Gameboy for the synth.  I did all the recording and mixing and mastering, clumsily, but I must say I'm reasonably pleased with the results. 

 http://soundcloud.com/noisymunk/catbos-master-11-1-12]http://soundcloud.com/noisymunk/catbos-master-11-1-12

Hi everybody, I'm new in this forum and I joined with intentions to learn more and to get some validation.
I often hear that people say I'm a very skilled drummer, but I don't really take it seriously because I know there are so many great drummers out there and I can't imagine myself compared to them. I would love to hear what you think of my performance and hopefully get some feedback on what I could practice more on :)

Here is a pretty good video from a live stream at DreamHack Winter 2012 in Sweden with me and my band.
The overall performance of the band isn't the best and the mixing is pretty bad (gets better later in to the video).

Thanks for any feedback that I can get! (It's my drum set if you would like to give feedback on that to)

Hey guys! last year I posted a drum video of a track I wrote called "Subconscious" that would become the first song on my debut album "Catharsis" Here I am a year later with the finished product! The album consists of 7 songs two instrumentals and 5 vocal tunes ranging in various styles from jazz, rock, pop, indie, 80's-ish etc haha.... Its all original music I wrote, produced, and mixed myself. I am playing ALMOST all of the instruments (I needed help with the violin & the guitar solos cause I'm not that good at guitar) and I'm even singing...(yea...) BUT anyways here is the link to the last song on the album its an instrumental called "Home" and it features my drumming in a 6/8 groove  8)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6P75XvR5uY

if any of you are interested in hearing the rest of the album its up on soundcloud

This is an old one... Well maybe a month old XD

Anyway, I was practising the "Groove Essentials" method one day, and Tommy Igoe put some great backing tracks in there. Very groovy and tasteful. So what da hell was I thinking on not playing with them before???

Here's Groove#67, from Tommy Igoe's "Groove Essentials 2.0". Highly recommended ;)

Enjoy!!! And please, comment and give me feedback.

Previously, a lot of you made me notice the sound and the kick volume in the recordings. I think it's getting better. Let me know ;)
