Re: When have you truly 'mastered' a given BPM?

Wouldn't it be more useful to practice time subdivisions at variety of slower speeds like in the 30-80bpm, and up-tempo speeds, regardless of what limb(s) you use. And regardless of what the pattern...

Re: Independence vs learning set patterns

Re: I feel like I'll never get proper practice?
