    Made another improv video:



    Started off with messing with a 15/16 groove, and eventually lost time and just went into jazzy soloing nonsense. Again, at my friend's house.

    Pretty soon I'll record videos at my own home, where the room MAY produce a better acoustic result, since I have carpet. I plan on making a much better 15/16 groove video that's a bit more focused.

    What you started doing at 1:34 is really slick. Kit sounds quite good actually with the camera audio. Was that your dog at 6:01, haha??

    Thanks! I'll do more soon, I promise. I just haven't been very motivated lately to play.

    Nice chill track man! Sorry for the late response guys, guess I was away from the interwebz for a while. I liked the song, you should mix the drums in more though. I liked the ambient piano tone or sound effect. On a small side note, it sort of reminded me of Seven Fields of Aphelion. Anyway, then I checked out "Here I am" haha you looked like Hector Hellion!

    Yeah I play. We documented tracking on the last recording we made (that is; my band I played drums in, with my drummer friend on guitar and vox and vocalist friend on bass), all DIY shiz, proper Cake Machine/pirate style... the syncing up with the recording is just for vid demoing/testing so 'scuse the ropey syncing. This was 2013 and we never actually ended up releasing this, despite it turning out about as good for sound & vibes as we could have ever hoped. I liked track 5 and 6, check out laddo's awesome solo on #6, hah.

    Tracks 2,3.4


    Tracks 5,6


    I have got the rest of it and may put it all together properly one day, but you get the idea. Vid quality's not great so... whatever.

    I haven't played for a while because of a bad shoulder but hoping to get back on it if the chance comes up to [have drums out]. Which brings me onto the next point... drums are amazing. I find it so much more edifying than guitar, and also that it comes much more naturally to me, but it comes at a cost. The cost is the pain in the ass that drums generally are.

    ps "cloibenshelbik" is a word I made up to title the videos as they were just for down-low sharing, the band was called Froth, not that.

    ^ Really digged those songs and your grooves man! The recordings quality was ok, but the guitar tone/mix was perfect! Felt like an old school RATM tone somewhat, grime to the bone. Your playing/technique was pretty good from the angle so that's good, snare was really poppy in the mix which is sweet (I'm having no luck with the sh*tty equipment i have) so that's impressive. GOing to have to look into more f your music :yesway:

    Anyway, I sorta neglected this thread, drifted from drumming (even quit my band) but I'm sorta back and actually have recording equipment, thinking about recording some improve grooves and posting them? Someone name a style and I'll try my best :lol:

    you're kind, thanks. That band was off the hook, I loved it. Unfortunately, everyone in it was also a bit off the hook and it went out of control. The singer/guitarist jumped off a car and broke his leg, and we had to cancel a bunch of cool shows including supporting Ken Mode... I had a few physical and personal problems, we had a few bassist problems, and it just couldn't hang together. What a shame. I'm remixing it and we're going to try and get it put around.

    I suggest for you... Bulgarian Wedding Music / breakbeat hybrid. I suggest the time signature of 37/32 and if you leave a rest larger than an 8th note you have to put a cigarette out on your eyeball.

    After 8 years of living in Milwaukee, I finally have a place where I can play the drums often without worrying about noise and neighbors! In fact, it was my landlord who told me I can set all my gear up in the basement and be as loud as I want. Almost weird hearing it from him. haha. SOOO glad I never sold this thing, even when I was desperate for money, because it had been my baby since I started putting it together in high school and I always knew I'd regret ever letting it go. A lot of it is even discontinued now.

    Finally bought new heads for it for the first time in 10 years... Went with my go-to Evans coated G2s on the toms and snare. Bass drum still has the old head though (some sort of Evans EC head with it's own dampening, but not an EMAD), but I think I might want to go back to an Aquarian Super Kick II again sometime down the line.

    My playing is definitely rusty, but I still remember a lot of the fun tricky stuff I used to play and still have enough muscle memory to enjoy playing along to most anything. Just need to tighten things up again. I'm looking forward to getting into the next level of my drumming by approaching it with the same practice and discipline I've learned to apply to my guitar playing. Some day I hope to write and record an entire album and play every instrument on it!

    edit: specs for those who love that ....

    2005 PDP FXR in tobacco fade birch shells
    22x18 bass drum (came stock with no tom mount and 10 lugs on each side, which you just don't ever see in its class)
    12x9 tom
    14x12 floor tom
    16x14 floor tom

    13x7 Pork Pie acrylic snare (this thing is loud as FVCK)

    14" Sabian AAX stage hats
    17" Sabian AAX stage crash
    20" Zildjian A Custom ping ride
    18" Sabian Vault crash

    LP cowbell
    Pearl Eliminator double pedal
    Tama Roadpro hardware

    also have a 12" Sabian AAX splash and 16" Wuhan china laying around, but wanted to keep this setup simple.

    Hey. Used to be an actual drummer. I haven't practiced for a few years but I've recently recorded a song for my solo project and it felt good. Will do more of this.

    Here's the moment I cut out the head at the last gig of the last band I drummed in - cause who doesn't like pics?

    this was me on drums several years ago...the lead/midi guitar player taught me how to play guitar. He learned from Frank Gambale... Chuck is an absolutely world class bass/guitar player. Also if anybody is on the music scene in Chicago, the bass player on this is Eli Namey who is now out in Chicago living the giging life.
