Welcome to Dr Drums Blog, the blogging site of Gareth Dylan Smith.

Here you can find my gig reviews, album/EP reviews, Rich and Famous blog, miscellaneous musings, and the columns that I contribute to HorizonVu Music blog.

If you’re here to find out about my drumming, drums, teaching or scholarly activities, I’m afraid you took a wrong turn – please visit my other website, which will hopefully satisfy your needs.

Please contact me if you have any comments or questions; I’d be delighted to hear from you.

I hope you enjoy your visit.

    Hi Gareth,

    I received the magazine and articals today. Thanks. Going to do my IPA interviews next week. So will have a good look at all the stuff when that is out of the way. Thanks again and great blog.

    Hey Dr. Drums – What is this blog all about??
    Do you help musicians fix and tune and maintain their instrument?
    I got problems over here!!!

    • Hey T.
      No, I do not help musicians mend, maintain and tune their instrument(s), at least not from my blog. What I do on this blog is to blog. What I blog about may be apparent from the tabs on the homepage; if not, you are welcome to read the contents of the blog for further enlightenment.
      As a drummer, I do have a rudimentary (no pun intended) understanding of drum kit maintenance – if you also follow me on Twitter (@GDylanSmith) you’ll have noticed that yesterday, for instance, I was rather pleased with myself for rejuvenating a snare drum or two.
      I am able to tune drums ’til they sound good to me; probably the best advice on this in print is going to be a publication like the magazines Drummer or Rhythm. A good teacher will also be able to help you face-to-face and in the presence of drums – far more helpful.
      Sorry to hear about your problems; I hope that you resolve them in a satisfactory and timely manner; if you think I can help at all, please do let me know.
      (Incidentally, I call myself ‘Dr Drums’ because my doctoral research was about drummers.)
      Gareth.
