How do you encourage your drummer to hit hard enough so that he can be heard? He is a good friend and we have talked to him about this 100 times already! He hits so soft that we can't hear him and I end up leading the song and then he ends up going off on his own. I keep asking him to maaaaybeee mic the drums, even just the kick and snare. He says he will but never does. I asked him last night and he said thr mics are coming!. Thing is I have no idea why this is even nessary when we are just practicing in a basement and not even that loud. I mean a 100 watt solid-state Roland bass amp is even overkill for how loud we play, but still he is playing like he's in a low volume lounge setting and we are trying to crank out rock!
