hey everybody
my drummer and i were just talking on the phone about a live performance coming up.
we plan to a quick little drum fill after the guitar solo(just a couple seconds)
my drummer wants to jack up the tempo.ie the whole song in 115,then speed it up for the fill,and the rest of the song. then slow it back down for the ending(breakdownish double kick part)
i would rather hold the song at 1 tempo,and utilise different beats...
your opinion???

Sounds pretty cool, I'd try it.

this may be a bandleading thread so this might get moved. but personally i don't like when a song does a whole lot of tempo changes that aren't subdisivble/multiplicative of the original base tempo ( ie 100 bpm -> 200 bpm -> 100 bpm - 50 bpm, ie doubletime and halftime feels)

you should practice it before doing it live, it would be cool if it works.

the only thing is we'd do the main riff real fast like 8 or 16 times,then have to slow down the ending

Dude go for if the crowd looks at you funny never ever do it again then u can rag on your drummer for the idea

i'd say make the drum fill/solo faster if he wants, then just keep it back down, but normally tempo changes in songs are kool if you drummer can make a good fill for teh tempo change
Gear:
Jackson DKMG Dinky (EMG 81/85)
Ibanez GIO (i put a Dimbucker in the bridge)
Crate GT65 (65 watts) to be upgraded soon, suggestions welcome (must be tubed)

stuff like that can really boost the audience's impression of you. especially if some are musicians who can appreciate how creative an idea it is. and how difficult it can be to get something like that down.

How can an orgy be 'Nazi-style'? What did he stop halfway through and incinerate a jew?

depends on the structure of the song

but it could be done nicely. Tempo change can be used in a way similar to how you'd use dynamics


of course, this is taking into account the he is an adept drummer that can hold the tempo and doesn't just speed up it because he's a drummer

practice it before the live thing, but let someone (lets say, 2nd guitarrist, or bassist) some distance away just hearing how it sounds or will sound live. and practice. i think it will sound great
