thank you!!December 17, 2007 at 10:51 pm #35244
Welcome, Darnesha! Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a 21 year old Percussion major at the University of North Florida and am an aspiring composer.December 18, 2007 at 2:50 pm #35245
Hey Casey. It’s good to see you’re still around.
Florida? Lucky man! UNF is in Jacksonville right?
I’m in Massachusetts and it’s freezing here. I lived in Miami for 4 years, I did my undergrad at FIU. I really like Massachusetts though, I just don’t like the cold weather that much.
Do you play drums too?
I bought a drumset about a year ago. I’m a guitarist but I’ve always wanted to learn to play drums. I got a pretty good deal on ebay for a Mapex, but it’s been a year already and I haven’t bought any cymbals.December 18, 2007 at 4:47 pm #35246
Yep, I’m still around haha I’ve heard a lot of great things about FIU. I do play drum set, I’ve been playing for about 11 years now. If you ever need any drum help, let me know!December 18, 2007 at 9:25 pm #35247
That’s great. What do you play, jazz, rock? Who are your favorite drummers?December 19, 2007 at 12:41 am #35248
well, I’ve played a little bit of everything. Big Band Jazz, small group jazz, rock, heavy metal, you name it. My favorite style of drumming is really anything that is groove-based (funk, r&b, etc…) My favorite drummers are probably more rock based though. I guess I’d have to say some of my favorite drummers are:
Danny Carey – Tool
Steve Gadd – legendary studio drummer
Carter Beauford – Dave Matthews Band
Dave Weckl – legendary studio drummer/independent
Jack DeJohnette – legendary jazz drummer
What about you, what are some of your favorite styles/favorite drummers?December 19, 2007 at 9:34 am #35249
Well, other than listening to contemporary classical music, I listen to a lot of jazz, and some rock as well. I play jazz guitar myself, although I have not been active for a couple years as a player…
My favorite jazz drummers as of know are Bill Stewart, Jack DeJohnett, and some Vinnie Colaiuta.
For rock, I have to say I’ve always liked Will Calhoun (Living Colour).
No one else comes to mind right now, but I’m sure I’m missing some one.
I agree, Tool is such a great band. I like Radiohead too, and have always been a big Mr. Bungle fan. Oh, I can not leave Frank Zappa out. Great stuff!January 28, 2008 at 10:32 pm #35250
I love Radiohead as well. I haven’t checked out the new album yet, have you? I figured you must like Zappa if you like Colaiuta. You know who else is great to check out is Billy Cobham (especially with Mahavishnu Orchestra).
