Re: Tim Waterson Here!
congrats on your world record!!!
I'm pretty late with that, sorry. I stumbled across your YouTube tutorials several times and I can only admire when real pro drummers take the time to explain things in a clear way so others can benefit from you. Well, I'm envious of your feet, haha. I also appreciate that despite all that technical stuff, you stress the importance of making music - skills can be a great benefit (in fact, many things simply demand having good technique), but it's the balanced musical result which counts in the end.
(I'm playing for 1 year now and find doublebass fascinating, practicing for several hours per day, almost daily. My max speed: heel-up 240 bpm, heel-toe 260 bpm. My hands are way slower, haha.)
