Im not trying to be rude cause drumline was a good movie with alot of good music, but they didnt show what drumlines are all about and the types of people in them, they didnt even show Tenors but once or twice. But I think its a good movie but i started long before that movie came out so I dont think that is the reason people start playing drums people do it because they like it no love it
All I know, is that if you pay attention to the sheet music that prints out when Nick Cannon is "ramming" a bunch of notes, there are a couple B flats, and A`s on the music. Somebody tell me how play "tonaly" on a snare drum. I`d be really interested to find out, show band or drum corps, that could be a major breakthrough.
Seriously, I`m not even a percussionist (unless you count set)
But everytime I come to this forum, people wanting to play Drumline. Drumline this, Drumline that.
Let the movie die.
Let it die in peace, then cremate it, then take the ashes and spread them across the ocean.
funny thing is... i never watched drumline till after i joined my high school drum corps.
after i watched it i noticed most of the stuff is "acted". I cant read music or anything but what i do is i learn how that guy learned, listen and make stuff up. Even thou my thing is playing bass and/or snare.
Of course not. People start for different reasons, but serious ones will not start because a movie. Some might start because of neal pert, joey jordison, even travis barker. Whatever starts them. Me, I'm still a new drummer, as in under a year and i'm just barely learning set. The thing that got me into it was just the sound. Man, when I hear a good drummer my heart races a little. That's what got me into it, just love of the sounds.
i know what you mean, playing the drums is what my life revolves around. after the drumline movie came out (it was a good movie) all of these new kids started to tryout for our High School Drumline (im the second snare) and its really annoying, they dont know what the difference is between all the different grip styles and they're horrible at keeping tempo. Ive played the drums for 6 years now, and ppl that start to paly becuz of a movie, can take the sticks ther holding and shuve em up ther *ss
Drumline wasn't a good movie. The music was amazing, yes, and I believe the cadences are still worth watching, but the movie I didn't think was any good. The writer was probaly inspired by a drumline then slapped a love story in the middle of it to make it a little more public freindly. And I agree with kayla. They did not show enough tenors.
Unfortunately though, some people do start frmow atching movies. Everyone I know though had already eben playing but they got inspired to practice more and try new things because of the movie. It's just subjective.
Oh, and there was no mistake when he was recording his drumline music. I learned from a man (who has been programming midi for 15 years) that most midi programs (like mine) use sharps and flats to notate sifferent drum sounds and techniques. This can be edited by simply changing the instrument but in recording the souns the flats are valid.
for me no, I just love the sound and the talent that it takes. All of my friends that don't play percussion say all the time, well its easy to play drums, I don't think it is that easy because you have to know when to play the right accent and all thiis type stuff. Plus all the unity of a drumline to make one beat that can sound as one like maybe on a drum set or something,Blah Blah Blah
