    Just to be clear: 

    This event is 100% running.

    We have enough booked and paid.

    We would like more, but have enough. 
    Good stuff, this should be great. The FB Super-Duper group!
    FIFY, there's enough cool stuff coming to warrant the duper :)

    Let's discuss drumming then.

    I'm very keen to play some drums and could suggest a few that I'd be able to learn to a decent standard by then. 

    Even if if I do five and @markblagdon does five, (and did @vasselmeyer say he'd do a few?) that still leaves loads of gaps. Do we need to learn them all between us or will there be an actual drummer?

    If there's an actual drummer, will they be there both day and evening or just day?

    if us guitarists have to cover the evening set's drums ourselves, that will mean we have to restrict ourselves to songs we can play.

    Also - there's so many threads about this now that I'm losing track of where everything is!

    Yeah...unfortunately there will likely have to one more, as Tony controls this one. 

    @Roland is there a way to change ownership of this and the other threads to me or do I have to start another and copy everything over?

    My trading feedback

    is it crazy how saying sentences backwards creates backwards sentences saying how crazy it is?

    Can't make the gig then? That would be a shame.

    Calling any cambridge cartel members ...

    does anyone want to share a car ride to Hudderfield? I'm leaving Suffolk on the Saturday morning, staying at the Cambridge Hotel on Saturday night and coming back on Sunday afternoon. The car is a not-too-uncomfortable 2010 Ford Fusion, with a slightly limited amount of carrying space, but should be OK for two people plus guitars, and the stereo is a good one.
    "Working" software has only unobserved bugs. (Parroty Error: Pieces of Nine! Pieces of Nine!)
    Seriously: If you value it, take/fetch it yourself

    That would be brilliant if you could get some ‘out of area’ guys there.

    I’m happy to sit in on anything for the evening gig that isnt too fast and has a simple song structure , where a simple rhythm and a few fills works (ie Tush,etc). But I won’t have time to learn any new songs properly, or work out any song structures, so anything with a complex structure, complex rhythm, doesn’t start with a 1,2,3,4-“drums start” count in, or needs the drummer to do something critical to keep the song going is out.  Can play a low volume beat with rods/ brushes for any acoustic set as well.

    I think it was @luttis that @modellista was referring to regarding drumming

    I can drum too, up to a point. 

    However, I'm reasonably confident we're going to have a drummer, at least for Saturday and the gig. 

    Sunday might be where the collective step in ...I'll certainly be keen as I'll no longer be a responsible adult.

    Drumming is easy, it's doing it the right key that's the problem.

    I can't drum. I can't even speak drum, so I hate being in charge of a drummer who doesn't just "get it". I know when it's wrong, but have no words to say how :)

    I struggle with putting the silences in at the right time....the bashing bit is easy.

    Hit and “No hit” should be ok, and add a few 1e&a 2 3& 4 timing tips

    We are fortunate to be well supplied with both drummers and drummer gags!

    This being a bowling club in Yorkshire, I'd be very surprised if it wasn't a meat raffle!
