Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Newoldie, I just play with basic shoes without paying much attention. I do not play in thick running shoes though, I don't want too much squish where the rubber meets the road so to speak.

Re: Bill Bachman's Drumworkout.com - One Week Free Access

Hi there! I note with my slow/past vertical approach that you should not let the stick touch the palm of your hand at all, the palm is the "brakes." This way you're always completely loose such that...

Re: Inverted Double Stroke problems (Watched Bill Bachman's video)

I think you just need to keep doing it modeling what I'm doing. That's the name of the game. I wouldn't expect to make it all the way through on day 1!

Re: Fulcrums and gaps and buzzes, oh my...

Re: Your warm-up tips here!

I certainly don't have any routine, and I don't even like the idea of "warming up" as some people think of it. I've tried that before, playing something with the purpose of getting my hands/body...

Re: Couple of questions on how best to practice for speed

I'm a fan of getting tons of reps at a tempo where you are perfectly comfortable and consistent and quite often doing so using the faster tempo's technique. Teaching the body the proper muscle memory...
