You can't eat mapex products. That's why I prefer Dr Hgnu's Edible Drum products. Lemon cowbell! Perfect!

I'm not practicing because I have months off at my drum school (and I dont have my own kit yet, only pads) as I'm taking design classes.
But to be honest... it's nothing else but a stinky excuse... I'm just a lazy ass, that's it.

I practised 1 hour on a pad today and at least one on the kit, I do that everyday... then to complete the practice regimen, I laze. So I am practising! Dennis Chambers style.

Good thread.

It is my day off. I played all day yesterday beginning at 8.30 am through to 6.30 pm. I taught all day. Now I am not teaching but have called into an email cafe to see if I can help some younger or less experienced drummers by answering questions.

Is this not enough?

Im not practicing right now because it's 11 and my dad goes to bed at 9. I only played an hour today because I was finding a more comfortable snare position and I raised my snare higher than i usually have it. Then with I was playing I smacked the rim super hard and cut my hand semi-bad. It stopped bleeding but is throbbing like a goose(?)

So its 2:00 am and after reading this thread, I m applying my patented zzzz'muting system" to my set. It comprises a few rags(to dead out the cymals) , a few tube socks(for the heads) and a wool sock for the beater. My neighbors are cool, but at 2 in the morning, its a matter of respect, right? So I actually AM practicing right now...for once. : )

Why aren't I practicing now?

Because last night, I was playing late at night when I wasn't supposed to, and lost drumming for today. At least I have 7th period band class.

Default Re: Why aren't you practising right now??

well i have been practicing much drums lately because for area all state band, i got stuck with an incredibly cool but hard xylophone/vibraphone part in this song the day of the first of 3 rehearsals, and i had 3 weeks to learn it with 0 experience playing mallets, just because the mallet player who was supposed to be amazing quit. But im glad he did, cause tonight all my efforts will be rewarded when i dominate the part for the concert. So yea after this i should be practicing like crazy....
