  5. The scary thing is that was exactly what I thought this would be about when I read the title.
    Thanks for the laugh, I needed it.

    Local Luthier posted it on FB. I hadn't seen it here, so I traded him one that I have seen here, the one about how you know it's a drummer at your door.

    I'm concerned now though, a bunch of folks have started tagging, presumably their drummers, so I may face an angry mob of drummers with carving forks and bic lighters outside my castle walls this weekend...

    How do you know when the drum riser is level with the stage? The drummer's drooling out of both sides of his mouth.

    Hi tedious1 :)

    You went out at lunch to get your drummer a card?

    Does that mean that you had lunch with your drummer?


    You must be sick! Get better!

    i recently told a drummer that he needed to "step up" his playing to be a better 'fit'. a card would have been nice.

  13. I did that once as well. At the time I was working for a good friend and he understood perfectly.

    "Hello! Shopkeeper!"

    "Good afternoon Sir, what can I get for you?"

    "Ah, yes, hello. I'd like the new AC/DC record, please."

    "You must be a drummer."

    "Why, yes. Yes I am. How could you tell?"

    "This is a fish and chip shop, Sir."

    I wouldn't worry, they would never get there at the same time.

    no endorsements yet...Are you listening Spector, DR, GK, Line6?
    I outright told the drummer in my last band to go out and buy a metronome and learn how to count...he was the main reason I walked.
    Rock on.

    I can now check "my chuckle for the day" off the list. Thank you.

    We had a rather important gig Saturday night, and though my drummer is on this side of "good," he still pulls a boner once in awhile. One song went so slow I thought I was going to pass out from boredom. I had so much time to think between notes I almost train-wrecked it myself.
