Practice suggestions?


Senior Member
Hey guys, an old high school friend and I are going to start practicing drums together to try to get back into shape. We were in drumline together and our chops, control, etc. is pretty rusty. We figured if we practice together and challenge each other, we'll be more accountable for keeping up with it.

Anyway, do you guys have any suggestions for stuff we could play? Exercises? Songs? Anything? Thanks.


Depending on how rusty, I'd start with basic drumline/marching band stuff. Start with a basic pattern, one does half the other does another half, practice until you can play the whole thing and sound like one drummer. Then cut it into 4'ths, 8'ths, etc.. That should get most of the rust out.. Beyond that, dunno.

Have fun!
