Post Re: Random Musician Shtuff
these are the ones i'm looking to convert

Image

they're my backup pedals so if i fuck it up it won't be the end of the world, but i want to convert them to make them more like these. i have another better pearl double pedal i've currently got setup as 2 singles but its got some generic ass model # i can't remember

Image

found someone talking about converting theirs on the drum subreddit and then found this short video showing how somebody did theirs, ignore the awful background music, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MI6WiukeEY

figure if i basically have to re-learn how to play anyway may as well try and work on my technique but i'm having a hard time playing heel-toe doubles and hoping more pedal surface area helps with that


what is moon gel?

ah okay, cool

i've got my roland kit for when i need to be quiet, not my favourite but it works. otherwise if i really want to use my acoustic i've just been using dampening rings and mouse pads :lol: doesn't work for the kicks though, can you use this moon stuff on the kick drums? how hard is it to remove if you no longer want them dampened?

oh it comes off real easy. and when you move it around the head it dampens in different ways. doesn't really make the kit any quieter, just takes out a lot of the ringing for a deader sound. haven't tried on the kick, the blankie inside deads that enough. mostly use them on the toms and i have one on the snare but i'm not convinced it's doing much. works really well on the toms though. only like $7 at guitar center or wherever.

I decided that I want to learn The Speed of Light by Iron Maiden. I started into it last night, and got it all down pat up to the first chorus. The pre chorus is so fucking righteous :bow:

setup a practice pad (which is essentially just one of the drum pads off my elec kit mounted on a cymbal stand) in the living room so i can work on rudiments more.

also just remembered i can use my elec kit with rock band so may pickup a copy of that to be able to play along to some shit

I spent the Leafs game learning to play the solo near the beginning of One by Metallica. I didn't get the whole thing down pat, but I only have two or three bars left before I've got it beaten. I'm really glad it was as easy to learn as it was. I think I'm starting to get the hang of this :m:

Just picked up a pristine Jackson Dinky DKMG for $180 from Edmonton. My lady was out there and picked it up. Guess Albertans are good for something.......not knowing what gits are worth!!!! :m:

What The Hell Have I? by Alice in Chains is a pretty fantastic exercise in bending to the correct pitch :m:

nice, what brand/model?


i've been eyeing a few different e-cymbals lately (my least favourite part of my electronic kit), specifically hi-hat. alternate using the acoustics and e-drums and just hate the feel of those rubber cymbals.

and was watching some demo's of those "twin effect" double pedals that never caught on (single pedal with 2 beaters, regular pedal works 1st one, the heel of the pedal works the 2nd). wish they weren't so expensive because those would be fun to try :lol:

:)

I've got my eyes on an acoustic-electric guitar. Fender Sonoran. I need to try a few guitars out to make sure, but I'm 99% sure that that's what I'll wind up going with if I take the plunge and pick one up this weekend. Why so many other acoustics offer no access to those high frets is beyond me, but the Sonorans have that righteous lower cutaway so that you can actually use those high frets :m:

Good effort! :)

It turns out that my MDF poster is finished with getting framed/matted, so I have to go into town to pick that up after work today. As long as I'm in town, it would only be sensible to go test a few guitars out... :idea:

Post Re: Random Musician Shtuff
dismantled my td6v e-kit and set it back up without the rack, was sick of how limited my options were for positioning the snare / hi hat and cymbals, big improvement.

bonus, didn't think the e-drum rack would fit over my kick drum on my acoustic kit but it juuust does. don't think i trust it enough to mount all my drums on but might use it for the cymbals at least.

last, need to get around to taking some pictures of my mapex kit to put it up for sale. i like being able to setup the kick with my PDP set so i can use 2 bass drums / single pedals vs double but i really don't need to have the whole 7 piece thing sitting around collecting dust. it'll probably take a while to sell if i don't just go for the first lowball offer so may as well get on that.

Those cool little clean licks were the first pieces of tablature I ever attempted to teach myself, right after I figured out basic one string stuff life Sweet Dreams where the pedal tone is moved down to your low E. Everyone does it on accident when they start playing - 0 0 7 0 8 0 7 0

Left handed playing update: I can play riffs semi-reliably and legato stuff, still struggling to find the string I want sometimes. Such is the price of picking with your non-dominant hand.

Lesson day today. I'm dragging ass and feeling totally fucking lazy, so the lesson will be the kick up the ass I need to get myself moving.
