Re: What is the most hilarious question someone has asked you about drums/drumming?

Re: Adding to the Setlist....

i think the best thing would be to find songs that you like *and* are reasonably within your reach. A common rookie mistake is to insist on playing songs that are way out of reach, but playing songs...

Re: Trying heel down - opened a can of worms!

i think so. i was so used to playing heel down it kept me from raising my heel too high, which i think is a common mistake.

Re: Wood vs other materials

Re: Noob question about floor tom
