    Good playalongs

    When I practice I find myself playing along with a bunch of different bands like John Mayer Trio, Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers and such, but I just LOVE practicing with playalongs!

    Ok, so in response to my cymbals cracking, I've heard alot of stuff about technique and how it relates to cymbals cracking. Let's face it, everyone's had a show where they get into it a ton and are hitting their cymbals harder than the usual. So my question is how can you play your cymbals...
