Just want to say what a difference good posture make. I've been working out of Colin Bailey's bass drum book lately, and found out that control increases very much when I maintain a good posture. (I play heel down).
Apologies for temporarily hijacking the thread...Ugh, I wish Danny hadn't switched to those frame toms instead of shell ones. I hear the difference both live and on album and I'm not a fan of the sound. Lacks something. Not that big of a deal I guess and it let's him put stuff where he likes it.
At least he's still a monster player.
