Love these music threads and posts regarding drums, so lets keep one going. It will die soon probally,but lets talk about our love for time, groove and self expression through rudimental mathematics. I know there is already a REAL drum forum out there, but they dont ride.

A drummer goes into a music store after deciding he wants to learn to play a real musical instument....he walks in and looks around. After a moment or two the salesman comes up and asks him if he needs help. He says 'yes', Id like the trumpet and acordian over there'....The salesman is very perpelxed 'cuz there are nothing but guitars over there. He asks for the drummer to point them out.....'THAT trumpet and THAT accordian' as he points vigorously............the salesman now realizes he is dealing with a drummer and responds, "I can give you the fire extinguisher but the radiator is bolted to the floor"
Hee Hee...just in fun
I :love: guitars

OK, First I will say that I am a drummer,
Now for more BAD drummer jokes.
1. Why do guitar players keep drumsticks on the dash of their car??
So they can park in the handicapped spots.
2. Did you hear about the Bass player who locked his keys in his van?
He had to call a locksmith to get the drummer out.
I'm in a five-piece band: Three musicians, a singer and me ... the drummer. :)

i am a drummer, currently studying jim chapin's advanced techniques for the modern drummer. i listen primarily to bop (post bop, hard bop, be bop) and fusion. some of my favorite drummers are-
jeff tain watts
and many, many others, of course - this list being comprised right off the top of my head. i am, however, a tony williams fanatic. speaking of tony, agop will soon be releasing a tony williams reissue ride based on his old k sound (think "nefertiti" and "miles smiles") which i would consider to be just about the most desirable ride sound ever to have been heard. not that any of us possess the technique which tony used in coaxing that sound from the cymbal - a cymbal, mind you, which would certainly be deemed heavy by anyone’s definition at somewhere around 2700g (22").
if anyone is interested, i have sound clips from a range of the prototypes - from thin to heavy. if i don't buy a williams reissue, i'll probably end up with a set of agop sigs, which are about as dark, dry, and trashy as they come.
speaking of ride sounds, how about brian blade's? killing, i think. though he's endorsed by zildjian and plays a variety of constantinoples, i believe his main ride is a 24" spizz. his playing with joshua redman and sam yahel never ceases to move me. so much groove- an eloquent, subtle groove.
er, as this is getting a bit lengthy, i think i'll cut it short. much more later, i suppose.

if you like bop you must be into Horace Silver. thank him for jump starting Cobhams career. Elvin on Resolution is great, thats what im listening to now. Everyone loves it but there is a reason for it, because its a masterpeice. Gotta love Coltrane. Miles, he did a lot of coke, hahahahaha........like dejohnette w/ miles, very good on Live At Fillmore East(70).....
you are probally really good if youre working out of that book.
