Re: Do you wear rings when drumming?

Anything on my wrists annoys me, but I have rings on every single finger and don't even notice them. Most are now more oval than round! They are all just sterling silver, so nothing fancy or...

Re: London Drum Show

I really enjoyed the Rhythm technique sessions and I watched some great performances on both the Masterclass stage and the main stage. It was good to watch and listen to drummers who play genres that...

Re: Off days.

Even worse when the off day falls in a lesson! Everything that seemed ok at home goes to pieces. And of course that then frustrates and causes tension, so everything goes to pot!! Then next day at...
