BTW: While using the small/Jazz style sticks, have you ever practiced or tried to play as soft as possible and still do all the rhythm actions needed at the correct speeds?

My last two gigs in restaurants I did my best to play everything as soft as possible and had a blast. I knew everyone could hear me so that wasn’t a problem. The band actually played a little quieter than normal (found out later the bandleader asked a couple of the guys to turn down) and I could do some funnies on cow bell or wood block that made people laugh; or play some extra intricate stuff that caused them to take notice.

We had a great Blues/Jazz style guitarist fill in with our band at the last gig; he and I with the bass man had a blast playing off each other during the gig. I think playing extra soft with small sticks had a lot to do with our actions with each other.

Quite the contrary, my band director practically needs me to demolish the drum set to be loud enough because I'm NEVER miked. Though at home, I have tried playing quietly before. It's fun. I play mostly big band stuff so I have to be pretty loud.
