what happens if you drop your stick/mallet & its your so

Post by snare cadet » Sat Dec 06, 2003 5:57 pm

i beleive that the drumline should be seperated from the band only because of one factor...drumline is hardcore baby yah!!! :nenr: but if i dropped my malet and my solo was coming up, i would probably use my hand if i was on bass or tenor, but if i was on snare i would get it or grab someone elses.haha i would be scared :shock:

uuuhh???? How old are you anyway? You are new to the WOP Forum and so far your postings read like you are really a junior high student. If you keep making postings like this and some of your others, you won't make many friends here. Plus you'll paint a target on yourself as flamebait. So be careful...

Sounds like you've been using your hand too much already cadet (they say it rots your brain, besides makiing hair grow in strange places). Maybe you should be seperated from a lotta people!

don't be stupid... PICK IT UP

I once saw this stand still line where a tenor player dropped his stick on the floor. The WHOLE rest of the song he just stood there. All he had to do was bend over and pick it up. I gurantee that you'll lose more points for not playing than if you quickly bend over to get your stick. I realize that there are exceptions like when you're marching quickly, but you shouldn't be dropping your stick in the first place :P

WELL WHEN I PLAYED BASS 3, THE BALL OF MY MALLET CAME OFF AND FLEW IN THE AUDIENCE DURING THE BASS BREAK!!!!! I WAS SO IMBERRISED! ALSO, WHEN I PLAYED BASS 2 I WAS OVER HYPING AND I DROPPED MY MALLET RIGHT BEFORE THE BASS BREAK SO I GOT OUT AN INDOOR MALLET AND I PLAYED THE BASS BREAK WITH TWO DIFFEREND MALLETS!!!!! BUT IT WAS OK CAUSE WE STILL GOT CHAMPIONSHIPS AND HIGH BASS....

Stickbags= room for error

I've never dropped a stick. Means you have done something different during the show. Sucks for you.
