    My left hand is so slow

    I just have really shitty technique with my left hand. I’m not balanced well enough when I am playing together with both hands. I need to relax more but the stick keeps sliding all over the place in my left hand. And when I grip it different ways it hurts like carpel tunnel hurt. I just watched...

    My left hand is so slow

    I have been adjusting my grip on my stick and using more muscles in my hand to get more agility and speed but still not even close to my right. I used to play blink 182 when I was younger so my right hand would play really fast 16ths on the hi hat it’s got like 9x more stamina then my left hand...

    Is it warped? Is it me? This is driving me crazy!

    I have had these drums for a long time and I can’t tell if it’s cause they’re warped or not but tuning them is a nightmare. I did check the hoops and they are kinda wobbly. I also realized that the bearing edges are angled and flattened all the way around Bc of abuse. Tuning them I can get a...

    Drum bearing edges sanding

    Bearing edges on Toms are pretty uneven. Half is a nice 45 degree angle that comes up to a point. Then the other half the point is more of a plateau and causes the outside of the drum to have an angle as well. Has anyone got an idea if I can just sand the whole thing down to match the plateau...

    Do your Toms sound bad? Here’s why.

    Tuning drums should not be difficult at all. If you equipment isn’t ****’ed up then you should be good. People often overlook this simple step when tuning. It’s actually before you start. When you’re in the store, buying your new heads you MUST inspect them!!! I repeat...

    Jazz comping exercises

    My teacher gave me some comp exercises where you keep a swing beat and read music to see when to hit the snare, the bass drum is empty and he told me to place the kick on 1, then 2, 3 and finally 4 (not 4 on the floor). Has anybody done this before? Quite tricky. Sometimes I feather the...

    Drum fills

    I just learned the 6 stroke roll and it’s really helped with my drum fills. I feel so much more creative and able to place it around the drum set. Are there or ‘stickings’( not sure what to call it) like the 6 stroke roll from drum fills ? I know it’s used for triplets. But are there more for...

    I’m buying a new double bass pedal and was wondering what thoughts were on these two pedals. I went to my local guitar center to try them out but they don’t have demon drive in stock. The 9000 felt really good.
