Who thinks the local music scene is dead. Certainly not us. Could we use some coming together and community involvement? Certainly it could. That is exactly what is happening on Elm Street in Manchester. Luke Troy, you might know him from the band Badfellows, along with some of his good friends are working on opening a second hand store in Manchester that will host all ages music shows.
The biggest key to realistic drum programming is understanding the basics of drumming. Start with learning some basics:
Plymouth Spotlight Season 2 - Episode 03
A few years back, Concord was the new hot spot for local music talent. There was a community, there was love, there was selflessness, there was help… it was awesome. Has this all changed? Has it died? Has it gone the way of the dodo bird and fled for warmer waters? Maybe. Can it be saved? I think so. Will it take work? It will. Can you do it? You can. We can. We must.
I used to hate my voice. I would mix it as low as I could without the words getting completely lost, and put as much delay or reverb on it as I could stand. At some point I found myself pushing my voice up in the mix, leaving it dry or using minimal effects, and feeling a lot more comfortable with the way I sounded. Then I would listen to some of the things I recorded and think, "Why didn't I do another take there? That's pitchy. That sounds like crap. That's embarrassing." And on it went.
We all have a favorite bass player. I won't tell you who mine is because even if you'd heard of them, which you haven't, you couldn't even begin to understand them. I like my favorite bassit because they're great. However, you like your favorite bassist because the hot girl at the record store likes them. You like them because that cool friend of yours with the black-framed glasses and the emotionally damaged girl on his arm. Who knows, maybe you’re pathetic enough to like them because the goddamned public likes them. I hate Eric Reingold.

Wedding Camp is a very new new new punk rock band from New Hampshire. Songs are short and simplistic and lo-fi. Is that a bad thing? No, no no its not, makes it great. No solos, a chunk punk guitar with punk drumming. This is a new band. You can hear the newness in the tracks but what you also hear is potential. I would love to hear this band live in 6 months. They have potential to take music, mash it in a pulp, spoon into your brain and slap you mad with happiness and senseless with sound. I think the energy of the punk would hit you in the teeth and make you beg for more.
