What?
It makes perfect sense to me. It's just extremely vulgar. As you can tell by all the beeps.

Doesn't seem like a good saying IMO.

Doesn't seem like a necessary saying at any level.

Ok, I get "Brains On" and "Find your dots", but "Hamster the Met"?
Without a metronome its not drumming, its just hacking.

OK... then it was what I thought it was.

That will definitely NOT make the list.

Seems like this is turning into a thread about "That which will never be uttered on Schorsquatch's drumline"

Once again, I knew I could count on you guys for true inspiration. :roll:

"perfect, we never have to practice that again"-after we totally fail on a lick. been hearing that a lot because we just got show music, first time runs in rehearsals were pretty awful
I play and teach music (sometimes even band music!)

I work in music tech and licensing.

Music is an art and positive energy.

"Drumming is not just about ramming notes, its just as much about playing the rests.
Think of percussion as a sustained sound and you have to insert rests into it to create music. Without those rests its just noise."

"From your last rep of 8s I can tell you guys dig the band Rush. Here's a hint, you're doing it wrong." That always gets the point across, I use it a lot.

My response to this is "Gentlemen, this is a HACK FREE zone..."

Hacking is my pet peeve.

For sloppy playing during rehearsal...

"Gentlemen, this is a HACK FREE zone! Wait a minute? You were trying to play the music? Oh well, my bad, carry on..."

I also started using the NATO phoenetic alphabet to describe terms that adults aren't supposed to use around/at students:

Bravo Alpha = Bad Ass
Charlie Foxtrot = Cluster *beep*

You get the idea

Two of my personal favorites of my own design:

"Check in."

"Ring ring! Hold on... *pull out phone* Hello? Oh hey! *pull phone away from head* It's you guys phoning it in!"

Two of my favorites I have heard others say:

"Don't get lost in the reps!"

*The instructor bends down and acts like he is collecting something. He then offers 'full' arms to the bassline* "Basses. These are all of the notes you dropped."
