      the kind that sounds good, don't care too much about genre



      but... because of the band in which I play... I'm kinda partial to indie stuff.

        Oh. Look at the indie rocker and his too cool to care attitude.

            Classic Rock, Blues, sometimes cheesy pop or drums with horns stuff, just about anything but speed metal or hardcore rap.

              we have one song in our set that was described to me the first time i played is as "think of, like, an old school burlesque gig. something you'd hear at some seedy strip club in hollywood at 3am in 1965."



              it has this SUPER cool feel, that like total bum-bum-BAH bum-bum-BAH thing.



              i swear, it's my favorite song in our set by miles and miles. that style is SO fun to play and has so many possibilities.

                Jazz, punk (but not at the same time)



                I also really like time sigs like 7/4 or 9/4, but grouped in such a way that it just sounds like you're adding an extra 8th note at the end.

                  Today's Question: How often do you break your sticks?



                  It's extremely rare for me these days. Usually only happens when I'm playing some heavy rock (I use 7A's).

                    Depends. Sometimes I go a week or two without breaking one. Sometimes, like last practice, I broke two. Usually they just shred to the point where the mess they make isn't worth it and I replace 'em.

                      I break anywhere from 0 to 6 every time I get behind the kit with my band. I use ProMark 747N

                        I've had exactly one stick break in the past 3 years. That was a new stick so I assume it was a bad stick. My problem is the tips keep chipping out and they become flat and unuseable. I probably replace my sticks on the average of one or two pair every six weeks or so.

                          Break?



                          Rarely. Like many others, I'll wear a pair down until they are useless, and toss them. Or if I pick up a pair that's borderline and happen to get to that point with them while practicing, I may push it beyond usable in the middle of a song, at which point, I generally give it a good solid strike right on the weak point on the rim of my floor tom to snap it in half.



                          Maybe break a stick every couple months otherwise.

                              I used to buy the cheap bricks of stick.

                              First I'd get the cheapest available. I'd break at least one every practice.

                              Then I got a decent priced brick and break one every two to three practices.

                              Then a buddy of mine left a pair of Vic Firth 5Bs at my place a few months ago and I haven't broken one yet.



                              This could have something to do with improving my technique over the past few months.

                                not very often. i'd say a pair will last me a couple months. the wood hoops on the keplinger really do a number on them from rimshots (note to all those that wonder how well my beloved wood hoops hold up - incredibly well), which i do quite a lot of and i have a pretty angular attack on the hats, so the tips get chewed up pretty good as well.



                                that said, i honestly don't even remember the last time i bought a pair of sticks, now that i think about it. maybe sometime in november? usually buy two pair at a time. and, of course, i play some pretty chunky ones.
