What Causes Drummers To Speed Up?


Sgt. Rock

How can I confront and cure a drummer that speeds up during every song?

Take away his amphetamines?

(Once saw a local prog rock band known for their rambling 20 minute epics with the drummer on speed -- thrash metal prog, the set was over in about 30 min and the rest of the band were pissed.)

 

Get him a click track to follow -- or get a better drummer?

Agree on click track or better drummer. I had this problem in the past, turned out the drummer sucked across the board at the end of the day. I vote find a more experienced drummer. Those old Jazz mofo's didn't have click tracks, they just had old fashioned skills. :thu:

:thu: A great example of how work ethic isn't as strong as it once was. You must put in the time to be great at anything.
