Tune Your Drums To The Song

For all of you who haven't been doing this, take heed. It's magic.

We stumbled upon this solution nit-picking what wasn't working and it was kind of like the "guide my sword" moment in Princess in The Bride where we like just...It suddenly just became evident that that was the thing depth adjustment wasn't reaching.

Our last little demo sounded phenomenal.

Agree 100%, tom and snare tunings that don't jive with the music just don't sing right and can kill a song at times. For most rock music, I find tuning snare / toms to white keys that jive with A, D, G, C etc works well and keeping a 3 to 4 note difference between each (with snare being the highest tuned unless maybe a 10" tom is involved).
