I've recently joined a band as a bassist (I'm a chick so that's cool, right? No solos, I promise.) I wish there was a volume control on the drummers, they just bash away and drown everyone else out.

So we turn up the volume, he gets louder, we turn up a bit more, he makes even more noise...  :roll:

depends on your drummer

you two should be an entity
you turn up
the drummer matches your thump
the drummers crack of the snare should match your highs
and the cymbals your harmonic

same for you
try turning down
until the drummer cant hear you
then let them know that if your groove is gone
you got nothing

i have an incredible relationship with my drummer
we blanket so much that the guitars and such our dressing on our bed
that's what it should be

A good drummer should be seen and not heard.....
If you have to think about that forget about drumming as a career!
Don't matter how little you know, someone out there know's even less !

not heard at all is a bit extreme...
i just think most drummers would be better if they listened more before they start bangin, when im learning a new song i usually listen to just the music a couple times before i start playing anything, so many drummers just jump in with a beat before they even learn any of the dynamics and changes.  thats ok if youre playing simple blues or rock with a steady 4/4 but anything with nuances or changes you gotta have a drummer who listens...

seen and not heard i cant agree with, just gotta listen, keep balanced and sit in that pocket...

ive played in plenty of bands where i have to pound as hard as i can just to be heard, especially in medium sized places if they have a shitty soundman or dont mic all the drums the toms really get lost.

one thing alot of drummers do that bugs me is muffle the shit outta their drums.  you might have to do that if you have a shitty drumset, but a good drum should breathe.  i use single ply heads (not the oil filled or 2 layer) and no dampening whatsoever and my kit sounds great. 

the only time i dampen em at all as when im recording, but for live unmuffled drums mean you can play lighter and get better dynamics, stick response, and even volume.  you dont have to hit the drums or cymbals hard to get volume, its all about where you hit them and how.

ok, thats enough drum talk for right now.  i think i need to go post in the drunk as fuck topic...

I too am a drummer.  Most impressive display I have ever seen was Buddy Rich performing on the "Muppett Show" back when I was a kid

Wow, I loved the Weckl solo. He really floats over his drums and cymbals.
The Slayer guy was so fast I couldn't keep up with him so I kinda got lost.
JP was crazy incredible. Kind of like Bonham with some schooling behind him and not as many oz. of liquour. Almost a heavier Weckl solo.
Thanks for posting those Baj and kraut724 :D

I know Baj :oops: I had a problem with clicking on the links for a while. I really needed to hear some drumming last night and paid the thread a visit and, hopefully, my own opinion on the solo's. I promise you I wasn't ignoring you or this thread.

Fishy, et al.

Good evening.  Could you please critique the following medley and rule on the drumming?

Buckethead's Giant Robot - Zeppelin Con Carne - 7/10/04
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9mPXNqsDmU&feature=related

By the way, the guitarist is pretty Kick-ASS  ;)!

I couldn't help but notice that there was one drummer who was conspicuous in his absence from this thread:
