Banging neighbors: could you deal?

5/7/2010:

Could you tolerate a drummer as a neighbor?

If you’re like me, and work from the home office – how would you be able to tolerate at drummer as a neighbor?

I guess if the guy (or girl) was talented and played songs I enjoy, it might be OK. Take a look at this video of what it sounds like at street level on 12 St. between Washington and Bloomfield:

Are these bagpipers playing inside? Or if they’re outside, how far away are they? Just wondering if you are all talking about the same guy!

It wasn’t easy to figure out the origin of the bagpipes… was up a couple floors I presume. I probably wouldn’t show my face either… After posting my original comment, I remembered another really obnoxious bunch of neighbors I once had while living really close to the Met in NYC. There were at least two opera singers on my floor, and though I rarely heard them warming up, when I did it was bloody murder.[quote comment=”191988″]Are these bagpipers playing inside?

I read this as “banging neighbors” — having sex. Deeply disappointed that this post is in fact about drumming.

That’s because most people today play their portable music players very well and with ease, but that decline in musical proficiency started when people were able to play wax cylinders long before records, radio, or tape became popular.[quote comment=”191980″]I’ve walked by here and heard this before…thought thank god none of my neighbors play instruments![/quote]

I agree. If the drummer is talented, I’m OK with this arrangement.

My upstairs neighbor has four guitars, three of which are electric. He plays, and he plays well!
