They'd play this on the Pepsi Power Hour hosted by JD Roberts (now a reporter for FOX News) when I was a kid. Eric Carr was a beast and if there was one metal song that made me want to play the drums, this was it. Too bad he died so early. RIP
A set of drums can be made to sound better with some quality skins and tuning them properly. There's not much you can do with crappy sounding cymbals.
Do some homework then "buy once, cry once" and get a set of cymbals that will make you smile. :)
Another thing that is similar between drumming and karate, changing up your routine is key to learning new techniques.
Our sensei has been actively been putting together different block / strike combinations that we don't regularly see or do in any katas. It makes you think and sometimes do...
Why do all martial arts discussions end up going the "my dad can beat up your dad" way?
Can we discuss the merits of martial arts instead of waving our man parts at each other proclaiming which is supposedly deadlier?
I have found a few things that are similar between the two,
1 - They are both harder to do slowly, people have natural tempos.
2 - They are both about muscle memory. If you think about what you're doing too much you fall apart.
3 - You never do a kata or play a song the same...
