so i was looking for a drummer to complete the line-up of my new band and this one guy got up with me via myspace and asked if he could "audition" so i was like sure. i've been turning an old tobacco barn near my house into a rehearsal space for the past few weeks and i had been working in there all day. i was hot and tired and all that stuff and this guy calls me up and starts talking about playing and informs me he has a blast beat thats equal to thirty pounds of shit in my pants. i lawled

that backstory was unnecessary but whatever. anyway has anyone else ever heard some one over-hype there playing using a hilarious phrase.


ps he did indeed have a blast beat equal to 30 pounds of shit in my pants but hes a douche so no band for him.

I know of a band that had this in a banner:
"THIS ALBUM WILL SHIT YOUR PANTS

~Abraham Lincoln"

I was laughing my ass off at that for a long, long time.

Wow, not every genre of music blasts. Jeez guys, play nice.

But no, I have no similar experiences.
#10
A blast beat.. for those who don't know.. is when the drummer just "Machine guns" the snare, bass, and cymbol, ride, high-hat whatever.

Dude, over the top much?

If he is a good drummer, at least give him a chance, if he's still a douche after a few rehearsals, then reconsider, because a good drummer is a very useful asset.

blast beats are stupid...

I know people that can do just that, but have no rhythm
but they insist on "playing fast"

:/
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.

I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

lol, my drummer is always coming up with crazy phrases like that on the fly. I once asked him if he lays awake at night thinking of crazy things he could say and he swore they just pop into his head.

one time we were driving into town and he was in a wife-beater shirt, dirty faded shorts, flip-flops, and had a LSU (local college football team) hat on. He said "Damn, I look like I could explain what the tornado sounded like"

and he grabs the bill of his hat and folds it in real tight, cocks it back a little and is like "Ooh man, that sum'bitch went WOO WOO, sounded like damn train WOO WOO and I heard a chuggaclickachugga but I then I saw it sucked up my truck and it musta been the beer cans rattlin in the back. And then everything went real quite... then it looked at me [crazy inbred redneck facial expression] and I saw the face of jesus!"

and then we couldn't stop laughing for like ten minutes.

Yeah and even then you might get famous. Take Metallica for example...

Blast beats were first used in Jazz.

Personally, I wouldn't care if my drummer was a douche. It's not like you'd ever have to talk to them.

Actually, jazz drummers invented the blast beat, I believe.

Blast beats are what scene kids try....

They arent that brilliant unless they are triggered. And most bands who are signed to smaller a labels seems not able to do it for shit.


Basically you take the hand you would generally hit the snare with and cross it over to the hi hat and vice-versa. You then just basically go up and down on them and go mental with the bess pedal. however some people can do this using there hand the strandard way, but from what ive generally seen, people try it the other way round.

seriously this drummer was dead serious when he told me it would put 30 pounds of shit in my pants he wasn't trying to be funny, but hes like that alll the time about everything. if he could he would have me open a song with a BIG power chord and then him just solo for 20 minutes. sort of like eruption for drums lol plus he made fun of my rehearsal space

o the arrogance!

My band doesn't have a bassist for playing live (I do it on recordings), so when anyone asks who plays bass, I tell them Satan.


...Lame, I know. :P
