    I'm looking for a female drummer/percussionist to start jamming with. I
    have a bunch of original stuff to work with and build off of. It's all my
    own stuff too. A mixture of styles... more progressive rock based. Music
    you can feel. I dunno.

    Anyway... I've tried a few drummers, guys... and they were too eager to
    just beat the crap out of their drums.. they weren't hearing the music. I
    need someone that plays by ear. Someone that will accentuate the music.

    If you're interested, please email me at, eyesofastranger at mail dot com

    Thanks for looking!

    Thanks

    Well, yeah... race is important. I prefer the Human race. Don't care what
    color the skin is. ;-)

    Let's put it this way instead... so far, in my life, I've tried about 10,
    give or take a couple, male drummers. A couple I could stand.. the rest
    kinda grated on my nerves. I'm not trying to teach a drummer how to act,
    so... I'm going to try a female. If nothing else, I'm being "gender fair".
    ;-)

    My next door neighbor is supposed to be one of the best studio drummers in
    the Pacific Northwest and he's damn good. Says I have chops and that my
    music is extraordinary.. but... I don't care for his attitude and that
    affects my playing. He's a good person, but yeah. Nope.

    Maybe I'm the sensitive one...? ..but I know what I hear in my head and I
    want the music that way. Ya know? :) (don't get me wrong though... I'm
    not some cry baby asshole that has fits and shtuff - lol) I just wanna make
    my music.

    Thanks again, Da Parrot-Chick. :)

    Would you consider a male drummer with a gay drum set? I understand there are
    several of those around here.

    And there's you... the one that always chimes in, just to be part of the
    crowd. No matter the crowd.

    Hope you get that taken care of, before it bites you.

    The thing that's really funny, is that people are so fucked up inside
    themselves, that they need to look to make someone else feel bad, so they
    feel good.

    Didn't work, but I hear you guys for trying. I suppose imp's can't help
    what they do.

    Lessee. You post some nonsense about women being more sensitive
    drummers than men, and we call you on it and you think *we*
    are trying to make you feel bad so that *we* can feel good?
    Methinks you have just been hanging around way too many
    high school drummers way too much!

    How about you listen to the advice you are getting here and
    forget about if it pinches your oh-so-sensitive overblown
    ego and forget about how we feel personally about you and
    take time to actually read and understand what's been
    said here. You have posted a very prejudicial post
    and it shows your ignorance. Saying that didn't make me
    feel better. What would make me feel better is for you
    to say, "Hey, I see what you guys are saying, I'm
    really looking for a professional drummer/percussionist
    who plays well, has a great feel, and also responds to
    direction." Have you said that yet? Nope. That means
    I don't feel good about you yet!

    Hey any time. And as for your wife, maybe you should ASK her
    if she'd like that three-way. Sometimes women can surprise you!

    Well Darren,
    You certainly have shown that you are an ignorant asshole. So only women can
    play with sensitivity? You are an asshole. Sounds like you are just looking
    for a piece of tail. I have $500.00 here that says old Richard is an ugly
    little mutt with a 2" Johnson.
