    Stupid noises while drumming!

    Title may be a bit weird but I'll explain. I was sitting down playing my electric kit quite hard, when I was done I turned around to find a couple of my bandmates in quite hysterical laughter. After about 5-10 minutes of prodding and punching them to get the answer of why they were laughing so...
