"I'll be honest, fellas. It sounded great. But I coulda used a little more cowbell."

hot 13-year-old bass player

Maybe subby should have a seat over here.

She's good for a 10-year old (and maybe that's the point of the video) - but the parents buying a huge drum set and multi-camera angles, etc. is unnecessary. The girl is hitting the timing, but she has yet to develop any feel. She's not ready for this kind of presentation and I think her parents are doing her a disservice by inflating her ego early on.

/the drum set could be her father's, but my main point still stands

*throws rock, hits equally talented 10 year old within rock throwing distance*

And hot 13-year-old? Really?

Subby was just speaking Biblicaly about the hot 13 year old part.

It was cool back then.
 
2012-10-22 02:53:02 PM  
Meh. Call me back when she drums to some real music.

I think the "hot" part of the headline refers to skill, not looks. Especially since, I'm pretty sure, the bass playing kid is a dude.

As a drummer I think she's a solid little metronome and good for her. Keep playing!

My biggest beef about all this is that I can't figure a good way to play to music and have it mesh well outloud. I usually play to ipod with foam plugs under full muffs, and I enjoy that but I'd like to fill a room with the sound at times and I just can't get it going right.

Yup. When I was playing music for a living (hand percussion) my younger brother decided to learn a REAL kit just to show me up. For YEARS I just downplayed any accomplishment he made and teased him. By the time two years was up he was 10x the drummer I'll ever be. He stopped trying to do it to show off or compare himself to anyone and did it out of pure personal enjoyment, and that is the only thing that ever makes people good.

I agree. For a ten year-old, she keeps a beat well and has some impressive skills, no doubt about it. But in truth, her drum teacher (presumably her father, if I had to guess) should probably leave the double bass pedal in the box and stop with all the cross-overs and flash, and focus on being great with rudiments, ambidexterity, and feel. Only then can she really excel and become something truly special. Right now she just has one volume and little finess. Just my opinion.

TFA made me think Tal Wilkenfeld wasn't getting enough attention anymore now that everyone thinks she's in her mid-twenties, so she's gone back to pretending she's 13 again.

/can't stay a prodigy forever.

Or they can, ya know, just buy her some dolls and shiat to play with. I mean why bother, amirite?

to me it looks like a studio and someone let her use the big drum set for the video. Who cares? There are worse things in life to be upset about.

she was pretty good, but it was a bit pitchy to me, dawg.

Which was, ironically, the young Tony Royster Jr.

Now he plays in Joe Jonas's backing band.

And Royster remains among the greatest drummers of all time. Pure genius.

Yeah, she's 10...I think that will come with experience. I missed the part of the video description where it says that's her drumset.

Okay, usually I think that Meytal Cohen is a gimmicky pretty face who can decently copy songs. But that shiate is syncopated and complicated and subtle. Props. I won't badmouth her again.

Came here to see that guy who always stops by to poo-poo these talented kids with the same complaints, "although she is technically very talented, her precise delivery is without soul, and that the presentation lacks a certain essence that separates true art from robotic mimicry."

And left without seeing him show up yet..

The trolls have learned to be a little bit more subtle recently.
