Re: Wondering what everyone has to say about trying to make a living drumming?

This link should explain a lot. The guitarist from Oh, Sleeper wrote a piece about how "mid-level bands" make no money. It's very informative and will probably answer your questions.

Re: left hand development?

If there's anything that math class has taught me, it's that whatever you do to one side, you also have to do to the other. This concept is no different for drumming. The reason a lot of guys play...

Re: Self taught or teacher needed?

With the advancements of online learning, drum teachers are futile. Unless you absolutely need one-on-one interaction, then YouTube is where it'll be for you.

Re: Knee Pain?

If you play with intensity for any amount of time, your body is going to hurt someone. The body works in an interesting way. If your feet hurt, your back will hurt. If your back hurts, your neck will...

Re: How to practice rudiments efficiently?

Start out slowly, and use a metronome.

Re: Triangle

I've experienced the same problem. If there are no other percussionists to help, talk with the director, and see if he can get a horn player to do it when they are resting for a few bars. If you're...

Re: My rudiment practice plan, looking for suggestions, opinions...etc

Great routine. If the student is just starting out, it MIGHT be too much. If not, then keep on going.

Re: Trad Grip L Hand Help

The utilization of muscles from rudimentary repetitiveness will solve your problem. You'll learn plenty of rudiments when you begin with the band. I'm sure you're familiar with pipe band legend, Jim...

Re: Feeling like a showoff

Not necessarily. Don't try to show off with it. Just get up there, play the instrument and get off. Doing this just shows that you aren't trying to be cocky, but rather you know your products, and...

Re: Criticize my technique #2 @mattsmith

If you can start the rudiment slow, and speed your way up to faster tempos, make sure that you can also come back down to slower tempos with ease. I know you were probably just messing around for...

Re: "Rules" for fills ...?

Only place fills where they NEED to be placed. What is the one thing all of the greatest songs have in common? The drummer is keeping it simple. Whether you're playing for August Burns Red or Norah...

Re: Speeeeed!!

It's all in technique and proper motion. Attempting to improve in speed is a grey area, in my opinion. Do you need it? No. Does it come in handy? Yes. I will never have to play paradiddles at 280...

Re: Jazz ride: When familiar patterns are unfamiliar

Props to your teacher for giving you something you can actually use and really need. Strong independence in drumming is almost what separates the boys from the men. Can any drummer play a jazz beat?...

Re: Birthday present dilemma

It depends on what you want. Go for something you need, rather than something you just want. If you want a drum DVD, but really need new heads, go with heads. You'll get more out of them than you...

Re: Losing grip of my sticks

Everyone has this problem eventually. You can go the stick wrap route, glove route, or, what I often do, is blow heat on the palm of my hands as if they were cold. Make sure the stick is in your hand...
