Hey whats up everyone, I'm new to the forums, but I like it so far.  Anyway a topic I was wondering about, for those of you in bands, was what the creative process is like, especially from the drummer's point of view.  I drum in a hardcore band right now, and for me the best thing is to hear a guitar riff from one of my guitarists, then basically have them do it on repeat for me to jam over and find an appropriate drum part to play.  As far as the bigger picture is concerned (the whole song, as apposed to individual parts), I like to have an active role in organizing the songs.  I'm no guitarist, so obviously they write the actual riffs, but I feel I have a good sense of organization, and how the song should progress and feel with time, which perhaps makes good sense, being the drummers we should help carry songs cohesively from beginning to end.  So anyway how do you guys like the creative process?  Any tips for maximum efficiency?  Thanks!  

Also, check out my video online.  It's a joke drum instruction movie, basically me just messing around in front of the camera for a few minutes.

Hey man, loved the vid! You can rock pretty good there!

I'm not in a band, but ive worked with a couple before. If i have anything to do with making a song, i usually dont think about the drums much at all untill we start playing things. When we'r sitting down and writing, i am like you and i give ideas on how the structure of the song works, and the dynamics of it.
I can put drums to anything, so i like to leave that as a last addition, and then twist the song a bit around them later.
Sometimes i think i should take up a bit of guitar. Only cos i have some great ideas of songs and riffs in my head, but i can never get those ideas over to anouther guitarist.

Anyway, hope that helps. If you want any more advice, Pasha should be on soon, and if he isnt busy, im sure he'll be happy to give some tips.

I let music control my emotions. If that makes sense. so for a lot of what i do in creating is i hear something and what i feel is put into it basied on what i know to play. i wish i was in a band so i could do more. but most other musicans i play with is my brother. but sense he lives in KY and he is the only person that plays guitar that i know. i don't get to do that much.
