I learned to play drums and percussion in a brass band. I read sheet music. I play what's written on the sheet music. If you tell me to play 4/4 until my arms drop off, I can do that.PKMKII wrote:I once went to this instructional session by a professional drummer, and he said there's two incredibly common problems he sees with drummers. One is that if you give them specific instructions to play this one specific, 4/4 time beat, until you tell them to stop, they can't, because they won't resist the urge to throw in a fill somewhere.
It's like doing a workstation ergonomics check: when your feet are on the pedals, your thighs should be horizontal, your calves should be vertical. Your hi-hats should be at the height of your elbows, the batter skin of the snare should be an inch above your thighs, and the cymbals should never be higher than your shoulders.PKMKII wrote:Second is that they set up their kits not for optimal playing, but to look cool to the audience.
Yeah, looks right to me.PKMKII wrote:An Aussie tries to label a US map.
