gig reviews; essays on life, people and experiences
Welcome to Dr Drums Blog, the blogging site of Gareth Dylan Smith.
Please check out:
Rich and Famous (the unspectacular life of a career drummer)
Thank you for stopping by!
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!!!
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.)
Great site Gareth! I have a blog at http://www.drumming-techniques.com/drum-blog.php and I’d be interested in collaborating with you. Shoot me an email

Gareth. . I also have a few drumming blogs I’d love to work with you on .. just stopping by to show some love. . great job
Hi there, and thank you! Let’s talk. My rates are probably competitive, as there’s only a small popular market for drum bloggery.
Definitely going on my RSS reader for further reading.
Already managed to check out a few amazing posts but on a tight schedule atm..
Keep up the good work!
Thank you very much for the comment – truly appreciated.
