Re: Better after a drink??
Sounds like you already know the answer yourself. You sound better to yourself because you're intoxicated... when in fact you're more sloppy.
Work on relaxing your mind without it.
I would never wanna drink for courage , nervous feeling on stage is the best kick and a huge reason why I drum.
I will however do drunken drumming for my own enjoyment for fun occasionally just like I play drunken poker occasionally for fun. Would never drink when it's in a professional situation though, poker or drums.
