Creative Drumming Workshop with John Citrone

I had the great pleasure of attending local drumming legend, John Citrone's Creative Drumming Workshop at Clark's Music Center on July 24th. (I know, I know, this post is little late, doh...) Always so much fun to hang out with Clark and Joseph in the store for these...

It’s A Major Award

When I started this drum blog and platform to share my various thoughts and experiences with the drum set I frankly thought the site would sit in the bowels of the internet where the musings of cat videos and lost social memes dwell. To my utter surprise, rngeer.com...

Joseph’s Drum Tuning Clinic

I had a great time last week attending Joseph Kirkwood's free drum tuning clinic at his family's store Clark's Music Center. Tuning the drums isn't my most favorite thing to do but is obviously necessary for an awesome sound in a home recording studio or any drumming...

Wax On

Well after giving the new ProMark Active Grip Drumsticks I bought from Clark's Music Center a few months back quite a run through, I found myself going "back to the wax" ha. The concept and execution of the coating is indeed an excellent idea from D'Addario & Co but...

Getting a Grip

I stopped by Clark's Music Center last weekend to check out the swap meet and hang out a bit with Clark, Joseph and Larry Steele, author of As I Recall. Larry has authored a great book about local bands in Jacksonville, Florida in the 60's and the early days of Jax...

Ok, where were we??

The latter half of 2016 was a doozy, full of realistic life responsibilities and unforeseen complicating issues that demanded more time than I would have liked. Alas... a new year is afoot and my recent fidgeting about along with music and whaling away with my...

Richard Geer Home Studio Drummer For CollaborationHey guys, I have enjoyed drumming since I was around 5 years of age if I recall correctly,  I was introduced to drumming by my father Pat Geer on his SONOR trap set that he used with his band the Malibu’s in high school. I have recently improved my home drum studio with better mic preamps and cables and converted to a pc based recording system from a Roland studio in a box. I have done various recordings in the past both in a physical studio with a band or in my home studio as part of a collaboration project via the web. I thoroughly enjoy playing the drums and especially creating fresh tracks for music in the Progressive Rock genre. I have above average skills on the kit, can keep a solid tempo and can balance rhythm with unique accent effects and fills. I approach the drumset as a complete musical instrument in the purest sense.

I am available for collaborations anytime. All I need is your music with a guide track or accompanying click track and I will compose and record with my DW Kit, Sabian Cymbals and accessories. I can supplement any additional sounds with my Roland TD-10 kit. I mainly play the acoustic drum kit but don’t mind working in electronic sounds as needed for enhancements. I will deliver tracks in a format of your choosing to be incorporated back into you project and mixed to your liking. I currently use Reaper as my DAW and can do further editing as desired. I custom price each project and offer great value for my services. Look forward to talking with you about your project. Contact Me Today <<<<

Drummer Quotes Richard N. Geer Likes

Random Drummer Quotes That I Like…

"I don't have perfect pitch. My drums sound like a drummer, not a drum machine."
Taylor Hawkins
"First and foremost I am a drummer. After that, I'm other things... But I didn't play drums to make money."
Ringo Star
"It's much easier to have a diversified career as an electronic musician than it is as a drummer. Nothing against drummers. If you're a drummer, you just wait around for people to ask you to play drums. But if you have your own studio and can make music, you have the ability to approach music a lot differently."
Moby
"I consider every drummer that ever played before me an influence, in every way."
Buddy Rich
"But, I don't think any arranger should ever write a drum part for a drummer because if a drummer can't create his own Interpretation of the chart and he plays everything that's written, he becomes mechanical; he has no freedom."
Buddy Rich
