Default Take it out on your drums?

I'm not sure if it's just me, but has any one been really angry and just said...I need to play my drums. I know I have. I'm not talking about throw your toms out of the window and destroy your set. I mean just to play as hard as you can to the most metal song that you have. But the last two years has been extremely stressful for me, so my drums are there for me. But it was just a random thought....it's been a random morning for me.

Doesn't happen too often for me but yeah. Something about busting out some crazy licks just really does it when you're ready to blow up.

Default Re: Take it out on your drums?

When I was 17 and just got my first drum set, it was totally there for me. I had all of the teen angst combined with some pretty heavy familial issues going on. My drums were my outlet, both creatively and emotionally. Now, 12 years later, it's paying the bills. Looking back, I see it as a way that I took my positive and negative energy, focused them into something worthwhile, gave it time, and good came out of it that changed the course of my life in a way I wouldn't have expected.

Yeah, it's a random morning for me, too...

I agree. I think there's nothing to beat out those lovelorn hormonal teenage emotions like playing a bit of metal on the drums. I was playing hand of blood by bullet for my valentine (seeing them 2morrow), i ended up overdoing it a bit on a blister i'd cut out and i actually ended up with a real "hand of blood" :p

That's my routine anger management technique. What I don't like is getting angry at my playing while already on the drums, that's when I start hitting too hard and actually taking it out on the drums.

My best therapy to channel anger, fury, stress, bad temper. I jam until relief, usually play Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath.

Default Re: Take it out on your drums?

definately happens, I remember a gig at King Tuts in Glasgow years ago, we as a band had been totally messed about by the promoters, we were really pissed off, started arguing about stuff as we were on our way to stage, in the end every member of the band just channeled all the aggression and anger into the set and it was the best set we had ever played.
we came off stage happy ,pumped and totally together.

Channel the rage!!

I agree.
That song is really good for getting anger out.
I think its because he uses the crash heavily in the main beat.

LeeLovesSabian,

Thanks man, your comments are very accurate. Also I like the heavy rhythm base (bass & drums) on Children of the Grave.

Cheers,

Yes, Bill Ward is a very innovative drummer.
Odd bass drum tuning though.

I did exactly that A LOT last year...the heaviest metal song.


When my parents divorced I was playing my drums every day basically as hard as I could to the acceptation of not breaking toms or anything (like I could anyway).

I cant really play my drums when i'm mad and thats usually because I have something on my mind, I find I play the best when I am in a good mood.
