Default Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!

lol great answer thanks. particularly the fourth last paragraph.

So, in terms of doing something new to me that's ostensibly difficult, I figure that if another drummer can play it... so can I. Well, eventually,
sounds like the mantra in the movie 'the edge' with anthony hopkins killing a bear. what one man can do another can do. if a masai teenager can kill a lion so can i. if bozzio can play a corscrew of a time signature so perhaps can i.

but as you say...first i'm going to be really good at the bread and butter of drumming. i know i sometimes over reach myself before i've really nailed down what matters.

and simply practice it starting slowly and gradually speed-up until it sounded natural
how would you do this? how do you keep track of your progress and what kind of schedules do you use?
