This is some footage I took with a flip cam during a show my band played recently in Louisville, Kentucky while on tour with Framing Hanley and Sore Eyes, which was a TON of fun, because they are all cool as hell. I would like to mention that I have some serious issues with my drumming in terms of technique and stick grip and the actual motion of the stick and how it hits the head, which started years ago when I started thinking about stick grip and fulcrum and technique and all that crap- before that, I just played and it felt great. Now I think about how I hold the stick, and it always feels like the stick is going to fly out of my hand unless I put a death grip on it. I am quite perfectionistic and obsessive and it has screwed with my drumming a lot. More than I am comfortable mentioning. I know it doesn't look like much of this is going on though. I do not sometimes feel relaxed and comfortable at the drums, although it has gotten better. It doesn't feel natural anymore. Maybe I am trying to hit too hard, all of the time, which I am, but so what? Dave Grohl and John Bonham did it... I suppose I feel a lot of pressure to be as good as every drummer I ever admired, because my band, Ionia, is somewhat entering the national spotlight, and we are in the process of recording and I want to make something I am proud of. Anyway, any pointers would be appreciated, besides 'getting lessons' because I don't have the money right now. Thanks!!!!
