As in any forum, please read The Rules before posting.

Welcome, all. I see that we finally got a Drum Forum. Stoked! Looks like I'll be calling this place home.

Anyway, we should try and set this place up, try and get a community like the other forums have.

We need some sort of rules, but I'm in no position to make them. Instead, I took these from the GB&C Chat Thread.. Hopefully a Moderator can edit them / change them to what they want.




Chatting is fine, but spamming is not. Discussions are good, posting to increase your post count is bad.

This is to be fun and to help promote a sense of community, so lets do that.

Normal Rules apply, no porn and all that jazz.

This thread is only for people who contribute to the Drum Forum. if you don't contribute to the Drum Forum, don't post in this thread.



(I'm just trying to help set this place up)


Now......

Drum Forum Mafia - Unite!

it works. I think once we get a designated forum mod they can sticky a drum forum set of rules


Anyway, I don't know if it's your doing or not, but the first day you're back this place is a lot more lively

How many drummers do you think actually come to this site? (this is an actual question, not trying to be smartass or anything).

I'm a drummer, and I've been coming here for a while. I'd have to guess I'm not alone


We've had a few pushes for a forum in the past few years. There's drummers here, we just have to wait until they come out of the woodwork

Guitarist of 5 years. Drummer of 1. But I'm already better at Drums.

Flea, what do you think of the threads that me and The Rev have made? We're just trying to get this place going whilst theres no mods.

Contributers, eh? Guess I won't be posting in this thread. All I know about drums is crank the snare and tune the kick low.

I'd say you guys have made an excellent start You've got the essential threads up and running pretty quickly, and all that's needed now is a little more traffic.

I would help out more if I could, but the only area of drums I'm somewhat profficient in is timing

Quote by TheReverend724
What do you guys think of the outlining of the FAQ so far?


The FAQ is looking good, I'd add a section on different pedals and stick/foot techique (I'm not quite sure what's meant by the playing/creating fills bit).

Yay. I just didn't want to look like me and Dylan were dictating the place. We've wanted a Drum forum for so long, so we're gonna do as much as possible to get it up and running.

+ No worries, pretty sure we'll get everything covered lol. The FAQ is in progress, a couple of 'Only' threads etc

I'd be up for writing a tutorial on starting drums if you all want. Been playing drums for about 8 years and I marched tenors on a DCA line last year, took lessons from a very technical instructor for about 4 years, interested?

Drummer of the month? Monthly competitions?
That'd be very cool, definitely, would also like to +1 the kit of the month thing suggested above.

Also, I mentioned this to Dylan over FB as well, but stuff like a techniques thread and songs to learn (like in the bass forum) would be pretty cool as well. The latter would pretty much outline all the myriad drum styles there are, with examples of players from them, and then lists a bunch of songs in those styles, ranging from beginner to advanced. Since grooves aren't as specifically as basslines though, it might be better marketed as a "Groove Dictionary" or something.

Well, I'm definitely going to be a regular!

Oh, and I've been playing drums for a couple months now. I would say I'm decent.

I'm thinking maybe a headlining thing in the FAQ about different techniques? Such as the heel down/up for the pedals, the technique where it's a really fast drum roll on the snare which requires little effort.. You kinda have the stick bouncing and it sounds really fast. It's the sound they use when they are about to announce a winner, you know?

Oh, and I'm VERY sorry for be poorly constructed sentences. I don't know drum lingo too well.
That's all I can really think of.
If I have more, I'll definitely tell you.

It has been a long time since I've played drums but I'm looking forward to getting back into it. You can bet I will come here and ask the experts. I'll be sure to provide budget, genres, new or used, home or gig, location, fav drummer etc.

My name is 311 and I hang out primarily in GGnA but I just wanted to stop by and say CONGRATS for finally getting your own subforum.

Yeah, that was kind of what I meant by having a "techniques" thread basically.

Btw, you're talking about closed/buzz rolls, I think.
