Your drumming kit is far better of those staff I see at repetition spots in my country. However if you'd like to make it even more cooler than it is now, you can consider doing following (Chip Ritter talks about that in Drumeo's Developing Showmanship and stage presence video):
- see what other...
@Swissward Flamtacles , thanks, I've never though on just finding ppl with the same level as me. Seems like it will be indeed much fun and low pressure situation.
@Odd-Arne Oseberg I will think over utilizing pad more. It's much cheaper time, because no commute is required.
@Rock Salad That...
@blinky I came to switching sets of staff to train as well because time is limited.
- vary by type (one day once exercises sets, one day others),
- vary by time (for example once - do for half a minute for certain exercises, once for 4 minutes)
Wov, there're so much advice!
@larryace , your thoughtful response about reversing fear motto and dropping artificial conditions are something really different type of thinking and I feel it's like an advice out of experience since it touches something inside. I'm gonna think it...

While I'm waiting for silent pad. I ended up having the setup like this. I put pillows under the pad. And I put a towel above it. And I turn on some Youtube videos without headphones while practice.
While this setup does not allow practice bounces and individual taps. Its better than...
Thank you for your PAD suggestions. It would be nice if i could practice without shame or neighbour scarcity. I checked reviews on Amazon - all are awesome - and ordered there... As for the couch coushin, i checked here for vibrations - and I saw no differences in that sound.
Having a girlfriend with a house a time-saver, he-he.
No Way Jose
Thank you. I really like it.
Well, I'm changing a work at the moment. So when i get a new job, i will get to home late in the evening. So it's like will be a time when they are at home as well. But I suppose...
