    Re: Overtone in my Bass Drum

    Not necessary any more than it is for a guitarist or singer, but you'll be automatically ahead of the game if you can. A drummer who can compose / read music is a less likely thing than a guitarist...

    Billy Joel - "All for Leyna" (1980)
    This album is amazingly produced. One of my all time favourite "audiophile" LPs to spin on the Technics deck.
