I am a touring drummer with a label artist and I currently use the Yamaha Click station for generating a click. The click is not feed to the band. Only I have it, we don't use in-ears with this artist. So i simple hear a "ping-ping-ping-ping" sound for the click. The whole show and every song, that's all I hear. I am wanting to expand this click track. I am wanting something simple but with more diversity. I have seen the Alesis SR-16 type of thing. I want to be able to have different sounds…See More

So sorry, I get busy and forget about this site. I was not the drummer just then. I picked up the gig right after that tour. I was considered during that tour but they didn t wanna change til after. hope all is well.
Thanks man! I actually didn't get to participate in the band this year (rather hectic school schedule), but it's definitely a great experience and one of the best college bands around (my opinion, of course).
I watched a couple of your videos. Great sense of groove!
Great to hear from you! Let's get some lunch this week if you are available - had a lot of things going on lately as well - I also picked up a Black Hawg - use it for all my live shows now - sounds huge! Let me know when you are available this week and we can get some lunch and chill!!
Won't be able to meet tonight. Reheasal starts tonight at 6:00, so I'll be unable to come by. Would love to get together sometime though. I'm actually going to be somewhat out of pocket of the next couple of weeks, but once things settle down I'll give you a call on your cell and we can set up a time to get together over in the 'boro. Talk to you soon.
Always great to meet another musician from Louisiana. Where in Louisiana did you move here from. I lived in Shreveport, LA before moving here in the summer of '92. Worked at Shreveport Music Commpany while I was going to college at LSUS. Thanks for the add.
