    Excellent idea. I'll just loop the drum kit, then play my bass and guitar ducktaped together. Now all I need is 2 more arms

    The 4th annual Drumathon for St. Jude's will be announced for September soon - probably within the next few weeks. I anticipate it being Labor Day weekend because the last three were on Memorial Day weekend.

    The idea is to raise money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital with a fun twist of trying to break a Guiness World Record for the longest consecutive group drumming session. You sign up for a 1 hour shift and cannot stop playing until the next person is scheduled to start. It's held at an amphitheater in Loveland, CO and drummers set up their kits so all you have to do is show up and play.

    The group that leads this is Drumming Up Hope. If you send them your info, they set up a little Bio page for you with a link to donate to St. Jude's. We raised just over $13K last year.

    I played the last two years and it was a ton of fun. First year was one hour with no list planned. Last year was 2 consecutive hours - a mixup of songs and almost all of Morning View front to back.

    I have no idea where you guys live but wanted to throw this out there in case you're interested in participating.

    I figured this was the best place to ask. @Jerp Derp is my drum go-to, but all answers are welcome.

    I don't know about specific cymbal sounds. I know what they sound like in general, and know basically hi hat compared to a standard splash. Beyond that, nope.

    This has long been bugging me...

    In Green Day's "Castaway", what is *that* cymbal sound in the chorus (~0:51 in)? The one that sounds like Tre is hitting a thick pie pan?

    Live, it looks like your bog standard splash cymbal (probably not the technical term), and he gives it little effort. But it has much more of that normal cymbal sound, unlike the studio version.

    I'm not looking to play a cover version, and I will not use this knowledge in my musical life. Just please scratch that itch in my brain.

    That cymbal sounds like one of those super small splash cymbals to me. High pitch and doesn't "ring" very long. It's probably smaller than my splash.

    I "need" a smaller splash like that and a weird Chinese crash to add to my already limited space.

    That works for me. I just love the sound, it's so obnoxious.
