Default Re: Better after a drink??

Now heres the query; do I keep having the couple of glasses of wine and playing or should I stop that and work more on relaxation and technique?

I am not at a stage, nor do I want to be, where I always have to pour wine down my throat before I hit the kit.

I don't drink if I'm gigging tho....(I don't like drunk people...)
I have never seen any improvement in my drumming after drinking. I would say work on your actual drumming and not drinking skills.
Either you have a purpose behind your expression... or you don't.
