Default Re: Tim Waterson Here!

Hi Tim, I have really enjoyed your videos and think it's great that you take the time to make and upload them. I am a couple of months into learning double bass (been drumming 10+ years) and wondering if I should be working on control, endurance and speed, and not worry about my volume for now? Will that come later or should I be trying to maintain volume before advancing with speed and complexity?

At the moment I am practicing rudiments including flam patterns to work on control and precision, but for speed practice I'm currently not going faster than the speed at which I can keep a high volume (about 130). I'm wondering if I should just chill out and go as fast as I can without worrying about the volume. thanks
