I have never even entertained the idea of having a Facebook account.
I absolutely despise social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat.
I have never had any use for them.....I'm now 48 and those social media platforms are more irrelevant to me now than ever before.
I dunno at what point you "master" something.
But in terms of my own practice........I find working on the things that I actually use is the best way to go.
Working on simple things....that's the real good stuff that a lot of drummers miss out on.
A single stroke roll can be played many, many...
20" bass drums have their charms.
I wouldn't use one as my primary drum if I only had one kit, but as part of a second bop/practice kit, they are wonderful.
Lighter, easier for transporting and with a bit of tweaking they can deliver a nice little punch that can be exciting.
I can't get mine...
The most shallow things are:
1) I am not inspired nor interested in other drummers and how good/technical they are. No drummer really influences me. I don't like listening to other drummers.
2) I avoid gear like the plague. I own what I need only.
The only "soloing" I do at a gig is twice.
1) when I'm setting up for a show.
2) when I'm packing up after a show.
The rest of the band somehow miraculously aren't anywhere to be seen to help me on both of these occasions.
Great help guys......thanks a damn bunch!
