Re: A Little bit of Theory
I'm not a metal drummer but I learned a long time ago that People hear what they see.
I always try to make contact with the audience.
I will acknowledge people from the throne as I play.
The key is to just make a one or two-second contact with the person that you are looking at and then move on to the next target.
Then go back to looking down or something for a while until it is time to look up and do the contact thing again.
Sometimes if I make eye contact with someone while I'm smashing a cymbal I can see their head move back as I strike the pie. it's amazing when that happens!
I kind of like old drums:)
