Hello John, I am also curious about your tune bot settings. Do you have higher settings for the toms that you like to use?

Hello John. I have your books and play alongs. Your tune bot settings on their artist page seem low, maybe like big band settings. I do 80% jazz trio these days. Do you have higher settings for your toms that you like to use. Thank you.

Hello Mr. Riley, I wondering if you could help me with a mental issue I seem to be having. I play with a big band and we are playing a score which has an 8 bar drum solo. I have written out the solo based on a section of the music with horn shots. I have memorize the 8 bars and can play it any tempo. The problem occurs when I go to play with the band. I draw a complete blank. Do you have any suggestion on how to over come this mental block. Thanks Mike Smith
